Macaulay Culkin Opens Up: Leveraging Home Alone Fame in His Romantic Endeavors


Macaulay Culkin, the former child star known for his role in the iconic movie “Home Alone,” shared an interesting dating anecdote during interviews. Despite his discomfort with watching the film due to his association with the scenes and filming experiences, he humorously mentioned using the movie as a trick during holiday dates with new girlfriends.

In an interview with Jimmy Fallon, Culkin joked about embracing the ubiquity of “Home Alone” during the holiday season.

Culkin playfully admitted that while watching the movie, he’d often mutter the lines under his breath to humor his date, implying that it might impress them. This revelation came at a time when Culkin was in a new relationship, likely sparking some playful humor about his past discomfort with the film.

Despite Culkin’s previous reservations about revisiting his “Home Alone” days, he agreed to reprise his role as Kevin McCallister for a Google Assistant advertisement in 2018. While the reason for his participation wasn’t explicitly stated, he mentioned enjoying being a part of the ad and hoped fans would appreciate the recreation. Culkin’s return to his iconic role for the ad might have been influenced by his fiancée, Brenda Song, who might have encouraged his involvement, given her support for his acting endeavors. However, Culkin clarified that this participation didn’t signify his return to the film franchise, emphasizing that he wasn’t involved in the 2021 reboot, “Home Sweet Home Alone.”


Despite his aversion to officially rejoining the franchise, Culkin’s iconic portrayal of Kevin McCallister remains a significant part of his legacy, and the film continues to be a holiday favorite for many audiences.
