Macaulay Culkin in tears after reuniting with Home Alone co-star at Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony

Macaulay Culkin in tears after reuniting with Home Alone co-star at Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony

It's been over 30 years since the first film came out

“Keep the change you filthy animal.” - That’s a phrase living in a lot of people’s minds rent-free at this time of year.

I mean, is it even Christmas if you don’t watch Home Alone? And adding a little extra festive joy this year, two of the stars have reunited.

Macaulay Culkin, 43, who played Kevin, was recently honoured with receiving a coveted star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Oh, and yep, you read that right - little Kevin is now 43 years old.

In case you hadn’t realised, that first iconic Home Alone film came out 33 years ago back in 1990.

And starring alongside Culkin was of course Catherine O’Hara, 69, as his mum, Kate McCallister.

No one could scream ‘KEVIN’ any better, let’s face it.

The Schitt’s Creek star also attended the ceremony on Friday (1 December) and gave a speech looking back at Home Alone.

She praised his ‘perfect performance’ as Kevin and said he brings his ‘sweet and twisted, yet totally relatable’ sense of humour to all of his work.

Culkin was moved to tears by O’Hara’s speech and she (oh so rightly) said: “Home Alone was, is and always will be a beloved global sensation ... the reason families all over the world can't let a year go by without watching and loving Home Alone together is because of Macaulay Culkin.”

Just nine-years-old when he made the film, his on-screen mum added: “I know you worked really hard, I know you did, but you made acting look like the most natural thing in the world to do.”

Hailing his humour, she said: “It's a sign of intelligence in a child and a key to survival at any age.”

Before the all-grown up film mum and son shared a hug, O’Hara ended her speech with: “Macaulay, congratulations. You so deserve your star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

“And thank you for including me, your fake mom who left you home alone not once but twice, to share in this happy occasion. I'm so proud of you.”

OK, I’m emotional too.

Culkin went on to thank O’Hara, as well as his Party Monster co-star Natasha Lyonne, for their words as well as paying tribute to his wife Brenda Song – yep, Kevin from Home Alone is married to London Tipton from The Suite Life of Zach & Cody. Iconic.

And the actor gave the perfect end to his Hollywood Walk of Fame speech: “To wrap things up, and in the spirit of the holiday season, I just wanna say Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals.”
