It's the ULTIMATE christmas movie that we've watched over and over again... but what became of little Kevin McAllister and the rest of the characters in 'Home Alone'?
Maculey Culkin iconic portrayal of Kevin Mcallister, a young boy who is accidentally left at home alone while his family go on holiday, will go down in history as one of our favourite christmas films. Following 'Home Alone', the child prodigy went onto star in a string of hit films such as 'My Girl' and 'Richie Rich'. Picture: Rex
Macauley Culkin has continued to act in several with parts on ‘Will & Grace' and in ‘Saved!’, and while his onscreen career seems to have been a little slow, he has certainly lived a full life! After marrying (and divorcing) while he was just a teen, Culkin later dated Mila Kunis for eight years until their breakup in 2011. In addition to his acting credentials he's exhibited his artwork in New York and plays in a pizza-themed Velvet Underground tribute band called The Pizza Underground.
