Once trained as a ballet dancer (hence his appearance on film in 1993’s "The Nutcracker"), Macaulay Culkin had small parts in a few films (most notably as Miles in 1989’s "Uncle Buck") before hitting the supertrain of fame in 1990’s slapstick family comedy, "Home Alone." Mac played Kevin McAllister, a clever and ingenious 8-year-old who has to defend his house from two would-be burglars after his family accidentally leaves him at home during their trip to Paris. After "Home Alone" was released, it was the number one film at the box office for 12 straight weeks and, when all was said and done, the juggernaut comedy had earned almost $500 million dollars worldwide.
“Mack” continued his success in "Home Alone 2" (1992), but as is the pattern, Culkin’s film popularity waned until his fairly positive critical reception in the daringly different R-rated indie film, "Party Monster" (2003). Culkin’s personal life also remained bumpy. He married actress Rachel Miner in 1998 (when he was 18), they separated by 2000, and divorced two years later. The former youthful superstar was also linked to actress Mila Kunis from 2002-2011. Most recently, Culkin has been seen with actress Jordan Lane Price (of All My Children fame) and has been heavily involved in his NYC-based band, Pizza Underground, which, reportedly, spreads “the good word of Pizza.” You can watch Mack’s new, late 1960s-inspired, unusual performance art video here.
