2015 Marks 25th Year of Macaulay Culkin’s Breakout Role in ‘Home Alone’

Believe it or not, it has been 25 years since Macaulay Culkin had that breakout role in “Home Alone” as a child actor. But to those who have witnessed his foray into the big screen and rather short-lived stint in Hollywood, it appears to be only just a few short years back.

It was actually TMZ who made mention that this year marks the 25th anniversary of Macaulay Culkin’s defining Hollywood moment through “Home Alone” as the 34-year-old was spotted sometime in March smoking and strolling all by his lonesome in New York City.

Sporting then his best grandpa suit to go with his facial hair, combat boots, and ponytail, it only showed that a lot has changed for Macaulay since “Home Alone” was released to worldwide theaters in 1990.

Culkin has since retired as an actor when he turned 14 years old. He currently preoccupies himself as a member of the Velvet Underground tribute band.

Rocking pink

Also in March, Macaulay Culkin was spotted in New York City stepping out of a taxicab apparently for some sort of errands. And he was seen rocking some pink highlights on his hair.

Macaulay has been regarded as eccentric when it comes to his looks but he prefers it most of the time considering that he is no longer the big star that he once was when he was still a child.

From 1988 to 2011, the 34-year-old Macaulay Culkin has 18 film credits to his name highlighted by several blockbuster hits including the first two “Home Alone” movies, “The Good Son,” and “Richie Rich.” He has retired from acting at the age of 14.

Macaulay Culkin married actress Rachel Miner in 1998 but they separated two years later. Their divorce became official in 2002. He then began dating Mila Kunis in May 2002. Sometime in January 2011, the publicist of Mila Kunis confirmed that the two have separated several months earlier but their split was amicable and that they have remain close friends. Culkin has been dating actress Jordan Lane Price since November 2013.

Late last year, Macaulay Culkin became a victim of an internet death hoax. It began when a source posted on the internet that Macaulay was found dead in a New York City apartment.

But instead of getting piqued by the reports, Macaulay parodied the hilarious 1980 movie “Weekend at Bernie’s” where he posted some of his pictures on Twitter pretending that he was Bernie.

One tweet also came from The Pizza Underground, which is his Velvet Underground tribute band. The post also came with a note saying that his band just performed last night at Belmont and said that he is very much alive because they are on tour.
