With Christmas just around the corner, holiday classic Home Alone is sure to be back on our screens before long. For that matter, we’ll probably stick Home Alone 2 on at some point too. So that got us thinking—what is Macaulay Culkin up to now?
Macaulay Culkin in 2021
Prepare to feel old—child star Macaulay is now 41 years old. Last summer, he broke the internet with a tweet reading: ‘Hey guys, wanna feel old? I'm 40. You're welcome.’ It amassed so many likes that it has become the tenth most-liked tweet ever.
Not only is Macaulay Culkin in his forties—he’s also a dad now! The star became a father for the first time this year when his partner Brenda Song gave birth to a baby boy in April. The couple named their son Dakota Song Culkin after Macaulay’s older sister Dakota who was killed by a car in 2008.
Macaulay Culkin’s acting career
While Macaulay is still best known for the roles he played as a child star—Home Alone, My Girl, Uncle Buck and Richie Rich to name a few—he’s also found success acting as an adult. After a break from acting in his teens, he made a comeback in 2000 with a West End stage role before returning to film and TV in 2003.
Since then, he’s appeared in a number of films and TV shows, and a few adverts. He reprised his role as Kevin McAllister in a memorable ad for Google Assistant back in 2018. Most recently, he’s starred in the 2019 film Changeland alongside partner Brenda Song and in the tenth season of American Horror Story: Double Feature as aspiring screenwriter and hustler Mickey.
