A Midlife Crisis In The Works?
Pictured with the tweet, you can see the dad-like Culkin, plaid shirt, and all holding a fist and a can of paint, clearly getting ready to do some serious dad things. He also announced to all Home Alone fans (the world) that he is about to enter a midlife crisis and if anyone had any suggestions for new hobbies. As expected this made waves on social media with everyone falling into probably the biggest existential crisis of their lives.
The Child Star
Our now middle-aged hero got his start in the limelight at the age of four. He made frequent appearances in films (some big and some small) throughout the ’80s but shot straight to stardom when he appeared in Home Alone as Kevin McCallister in 1990. He was just 8 years old. Director John Hughs knew talent when he saw it and picked Culkin for this iconic film after working with him on the comedy Uncle Buck starring the late John Candy.
Like most child stars, the growing up part gets a little tough, and Culkin has for many years been the subject of vicious rumors involving substance abuse and crazy parties. There was also of course the tough break up with Mila Kunis. But, time seems to have healed and after what looks like cleaning up his act, the former child star has been hard at work, launching a whole new project. This time with a podcast. The funny podcast has been described as Goop meets the Onion. Interesting mix!
