Mum Of Home Alone Lookalike Says Son Is Compared To Kevin McCallister Daily
| Last updated
The mum of a kid who looks just like Kevin McCallister from Home Alone has spoken about how repetitive it is being told her son looks like the character.
Growing up ten-year-old Evan Annable was regularly mistaken for Macaulay Culkin (despite the Home Alone actor now being 40).
Now his seemingly fed-up mum Andrea has spoken about being stopped on a daily basis as people make the connection between the two.
The 42-year-old kitchen assistant from Derbyshire said: "We'll be in the shops and someone will come up and say 'Do you know who your little boy looks like?'
"I just think 'Oh here we go again'. It's a daily occurrence. We've had it thousands of times.
"One time Evan was in hospital with a broken arm and even the staff were coming up and saying it to him.
"Just about everyone we've come into contact with has said it. It's like 'we know, we know!'"
She went on: "We get it a bit more near Christmas time because everyone's watching the films.
"But he's always looked a bit like him.
"Evan does like the films but it's not like he watches the films and models himself on him.
"Thankfully he hasn't done anything that happens in the film either.
"I think you'd have to be blind not to see it. He could be his double from back in the day."
It seems that an uncanny resemblance to a young Macaulay Culkin isn't all Evan has in common with the star because the youngster is also following the same career path.
That's right, Evan has now starred in comedy film Swimming With Men (2018) and appeared on a recent Sony's Tiny Pop advert.
Someone else who's consistently being mistaken for a young actor is Kari Lewis. The 31-year-old has been approached numerous times by strangers comparing her to Emma Watson's character Hermione Granger.
The mum-of-one has been asked to dress up as the Harry Potter star and sometimes Kari's mum struggles to tell which is which.
Lewis, from Zionsville, Indiana, said: "My mum says she can really see the resemblance; she sometimes sees a photo of Emma Watson and thinks it's me.
"When I worked at a restaurant, I would constantly get comments from customers who couldn't believe the resemblance. It's fun seeing their reaction; I understand why people think I look like her.
"It all started when the first film was released; I went out to the Post Office to post a letter for my mum and a couple of girls called me Hermione. I had never heard of the name so I went home and researched it and realised that I did look like her."
