ABOUT OUR HONOREE
“Macaulay Culkin has been a staple in pop culture for decades,” stated Ana Martinez, Producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. “He has an extensive trajectory of work but his movie, “Home Alone” is one of the most beloved holiday movies known the world over. How fitting that Catherine O’Hara who played Macaulay’s mother in the film is reuniting with her movie son and will be speaking at the ceremony!” added Martinez.
Macaulay Culkin began his stage career at the age of four and made the first of several small film appearances in Rocket Gibraltar, playing the grandson of Burt Lancaster. It was in the John Hughes film Uncle Buck, in which he played the inquisitive nephew of John Candy that Culkin first began to attract attention.
Culkin then shot to international stardom with his lead role in Hughes’ film Home Alone, in which he played Kevin McCallister, a resourceful child who is accidentally left behind when his family goes on vacation. Culkin received a Golden Globe nomination for his performance, and Home Alone II: Lost in New York, was also a worldwide success.
Culkin appeared on stage to critical acclaim in Madame Melville and portrayed the ill-fated Michael Alig in the motion picture cult classic Party Monster. His film credits include Jacobs Ladder, My Girl, The Good Son, Richie Rich and Saved! Culkin filmed the independent Changeland on location in Thailand for director-writer Seth Green. His television credits include roles on Kings, The Jim Gaffigan Show and Robot Chicken. Culkin also founded the new media empire Bunny Ears which included a Podcast website, live events as well as social and merchandising components.
He most recently appeared in American Horror Story: Installment 10 for FX and in The Righteous Gemstones for HBO Max.
Culkin continues to make giving back his priority by supporting charities such as the San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance and Stand Up To Cancer.
