The internet can argue all day long about whether or not ‘Die Hard’ is a Christmas movie, but I think we can all agree that ‘Home Alone’ is definitely a holiday classic. Recently, much to the delight of all the 90’s babies out there, Google teamed up with everyone’s favorite prankster Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) to recreate some classic scenes from the film.
Many people may not know but the role of Kevin McCallister was written specifically for Culkin by John Hughes who got the idea for the film during the filming of ‘Uncle Buck’ – also starring the child star.
As with many childhood stars fame took a troubling toll on the actor. In 2004 he was arrested for marijuana possession and two controlled substances. Culkin was briefly arrested then suspended after pleading guilty.
Viewers were not only delighted to see a nostalgic remake, but see the former actor back on their screens looking healthy and happy. The now self described actor, writer and painter is a living Christmas miracle.
