Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin is unrecognisable 31 years on from legendary Christmas film

JUST over three decades ago, Macaulay Culkin appeared as the adorable Kevin McCallister in Home Alone – and he looks completely unrecognisable these days. 

With Christmas now just days away, many will be opting to watch their favourite festive flicks, with Home Alone at the top of the pile.


The family film tells the story of a rambunctious eight-year-old who has to protect his house from two burglars when he is accidentally left home alone by his family during the Christmas holidays. 

Portrayed by Macaulay in 1990, the American actor quickly became a household name because of his antics in the film, however, he looks nothing like his old self anymore. 

When he turned 40 last August, he tweeted, "It's my gift to the world: I make people feel old. I'm no longer a kid, that's my job." 

As far as acting goes, Culkin hasn't really starred in too many since Home Alone 1 and 2. 

In fact, he's only starred in four movies within the last 20 years, however, Culkin did appear in the double billing of American Horror Story as Mickey, a drug addict and gay prostitute. 

Away from the screens, Culkin has suffered heartbreak in his personal life.

Incredibly, aged just 14, he was forced to 'divorce' his parents in 1994 to stop them from handling his vast fortune.

In 2018, the actor told Marc Maron's WTF podcast that his father was "physically and mentally" abusive and that he was "jealous" of what he had achieved at such a young age.

His love life has also come under the spotlight after an array of high profile relationships turned sour.

In 1998, aged just 18, Macaulay married actress Rachel Miner, but the couple separated in 2000 and divorced in 2002.

After his split, Macaulay dated another familiar face in Mila Kunis – now married to Ashton Kutcher – with the pair dating for eight years prior to their 2011 split.

Macaulay also became embroiled in Michael Jackson's child sex scandal – but still insists to this day that he had never been abused by the popstar.
