As Home Alone 2 Turns 30, We Wanted to Check Where Our Beloved Cast Is Today
It’s already been 3 decades since Home Alone 2: Lost in New York was released, and we still can’t get enough of it, especially around the holiday season. The iconic movie is the third highest-grossing Christmas film of all-time, and its characters remain as iconic and fascinating as ever. This is why we were curious to dig a little to see what this beloved movie cast looks like now, and what they are doing in their lives and careers.
Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin)
Culkin is 42 years old now, and recently became a dad to a son born in 2021 with his fiancée, actress Brenda Song. One of his latest acting roles was in the 10th season of American Horror Story: Double Feature, a role for which he gained critical praise.
Kate McCallister, Kevin’s mom (Catherine O’Hara)
O’Hara is 68 years old now and she has had many notable roles since her iconic portrayal as Kevin’s mom. From 2015 to 2020, the actress played the role of a washed-up soap opera actress in the TV series Schitt’s Creek which earned her an Emmy award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.
