Home Alone has long been a holiday favorite, ever since little Kevin McCallister (originally played by Macaulay Culkin) was left home by himself and tried aftershave for the first time back in 1990.
Last week, Culkin received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. His on-screen mom, Catherine O’Hara, and fellow child actor, Natasha Lyonne, were there to help him celebrate.
“Macaulay, congratulations, you so deserve your star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” said O’Hara. “Thank you for including me, your fake mom who left you home alone not once but twice, to share in this happy occasion,” she joked before adding. “I’m so proud of you.”
Culkin got emotional during the ceremony. “I’d like to thank Brenda, you are absolutely everything. You’re my champion,” he said to his fiancee, Brenda Song, who was in the audience with their two sons. “You’re the only person happier for me today than I am. You’re not only the best woman I’ve ever known, you’re the best person I’ve ever known” Culkin went on to thank Song for giving him “purpose” and a family. “After the birth of our two boys, you’ve become one of my three favorite people,” he joked.
To close, Culkin added the Home Alone quote, “In the spirit of the holiday season, I just want to say ‘Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals!’”
It’s been 33 years since Culkin, Joe Pesci, O’Hara and Daniel Stern first graced the screen of the iconic film. The original film and the 2021 reboot, Home Sweet Home Alone, are available to watch exclusively on Disney+.
The newest installment in the Home Alone universe takes place in the same town as the 1990 film, but with new themes and adventures.
