John Hughes' beloved Christmas comedy "Home Alone" has been delighting viewers since 1990. More than 30 years have passed, but the film continues to be reviewed on the eve of the New Year holidays with the same interest. The role of Kevin brought worldwide fame to Macaulay Culkin, making him a real little star. The fates of other actors who played in the comedy turned out differently. Find out what happened to the heroes of the movie "Home Alone" after filming, from our material.
The Christmas comedy "Home Alone" was released 31 years ago. Its box office receipts amounted to 476.7 million dollars (about 35 billion rubles). Soon the second part of the film appeared - "Home Alone 2: Lost in New York" - which became no less successful than the first. The same cast played in the sequel.
Some of the actors who played the main roles were famous before filming in the comedy, while others became famous thanks to her.
"Home Alone" is the film thanks to which Macaulay Culkin became a real star. The role of the confident little Kevin, who saved his house from the "wet bandits", made him a favorite of the audience.
Screenwriter John Hughes knew Culkin even before filming the movie "Home Alone". The boy starred in his film "Uncle Buck" (1989). After the success of the cult Christmas comedy and its sequel, Macaulay Culkin starred in several more films of the 90s, including "My Daughter", "Rich Richie" and "On a Par with his father". Then a big break came in the actor's creative life. He appeared on the screen again in 2008 in the comedy "Saved".
Since then, Culkin has starred in several more films and television series. Thanks to his popularity, he managed to make a large fortune — $ 17 million (about 1.3 billion rubles). His performance in the series "American Horror Story: A Double Session" received favorable reviews from film critics. Recently, the actor defiled on the podium during the premiere of the film "House of Gucci" in Los Angeles.
This year Macaulay Culkin became a father. His girlfriend Brenda Song gave birth to a son. The parents named the baby Dakota Song Culkin in honor of the actor's sister, who died in a car accident in 2008.
Catherine O'Hara was already a Hollywood star before filming the movie "Home Alone". The actress starred in the film "Beetlejuice" (1988) and other films. In the Christmas comedy, she played Kevin's mom, who was most worried about her little son.
One of the most famous works of the actress was the role of Moira in the comedy "Sheets Creek" (2015). Catherine O'Hara has received numerous awards, including an Emmy, and has been nominated for a Golden Globe several times.
Popular actor Joe Pesci has starred in many films, including "Nice Guys", "Raging Bull" and the action movie "Lethal Weapon". But one of the most beloved among the audience was his role as the bandit Harry in the comedy "Home Alone".
In addition to a successful acting career, Joe Pesci is also known in the music world. Thanks to him, the famous band The Four Seasons was created, which performed popular hits, including "Oh What a Night" (1963). It was he who introduced the musicians, who later united into a wonderful quartet.
In 2019, Joe Pesci starred alongside Al Pacino and Robert De Niro in the film The Irishman.
The actor was married to Claudia Haro from 1988 to 1992. The couple had a daughter, Tiffany Pesci.
Comedian John Candy was a close friend of screenwriter John Hughes. He starred in many of his films, including "By Plane, Train and Car", "In the Lap of Nature" and "Uncle Buck", together with Macaulay Culkin.
In the comedy "Home Alone" Candy played the musician Gus. He met Kevin's mother Kate at the airport and brought her to Chicago to visit her son. The scenes in the van with the musicians became a continuous improvisation, because the actor was very busy and could devote only 24 hours to filming in the comedy.
John Candy was married to Rosemary Hobor. The couple had two children. The actor died of a heart attack in March 1994 while filming in Mexico.
Where Harry was, there was his funny and awkward comrade Marv. Prior to filming in the comedy, Daniel Stern had been building a successful acting career since 1979.
The most recent works of the actor were shooting in the film "James against the future of himself" (2019) and in the TV series "Upstart" (2019 - 2021).
Stern is married to actress Laura Mattos. The couple has three children.
Before starring in the comedy "Home Alone", John Heard had already built a successful acting career. He starred in many films and TV series, including "Miami Police", "Big" and "On the Beach". For the role of a corrupt police officer in the TV series "The Sopranos Clan", the actor was nominated for an Emmy Award.
John Hurd was married three times. He continued acting in television series until his death in July 2017. The actor was 71 years old.
Some actors became Hollywood stars by accident. They just got lucky on the steep turns of life.
