Where are the Home Alone kids now? One’s battled heroin while another’s an Olympian

HOME Alone is a cult Christmas classic, but it's been 30 long years since the film came out.

Three decades on, the stars from the blockbuster hit are all grown up – but what have they been up to? Here's all the goss before you settle down to reminisce…

Kevin McCallister

Home Alone and the second movie, Lost In New York, made Macaulay Culkin a household name.

At the height of his fame, the now 40-year-old was labelled the most successful child actor since Shirley Temple, but his younger years were troubled.

The actor famously divorced his parents in 1994, at the age of 14, was arrested for possession of marijuana in 2004 and plagued by rumours of heroin addiction after his eight-year relationship with Mila Kunis ended in late 2010.

He previously addressed the rumours, telling The Guardian: "I was not pounding six grand of heroin a month", but didn't deny taking the drug.

After stepping out of the spotlight, he's made a return to show business starring in Seth Green's directorial debut Changeland – which is due to be released in 2019.

As well as a starring role in the upcoming American Horror Story season 10, he is also expected to make a cameo appearance in the Home Alone reboot on Disney+ with sourced claiming he is set to make a cool £2.5 million.

His love life is also on the up with Macaulay in a relationship with actress Brenda Song since 2017.


She played Kevin’s desperate mum Kate in the original movie and made a return for the second movie and Catherine O’Hara has continued to have a successful acting career playing many an on-screen mum.

Catherine had previously the absent step-mum Delia Deetz in 1988’s Beetlejuice but perhaps her most famous parental role has been Moira Rose in the sitcom Schitt’s Creek.

The 66-year-old won her first Emmy for the role this year.

Marv Murchins & Harry Lime

Daniel Stern and Joe Pesci played the hapless Wet Bandits who attempted to rob the McCallister home, but ended up being terrorised by little Kevin.

In 1991 Joe won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role as the psychopathic gangster Tommy DeVito (based on Thomas DeSimone) in Goodfellas.

Joe announced his retirement from acting in 1999, and since then he has appeared only occasionally in films.

Joe made his grand return to the big screen in November 2019 in Martin Scorsese’s gangster epic The Irishman.

Meanwhile Daniel went on to appear in Home Alone 2 and had a starring role in the movie City Slickers.


Hillary Wolf played Kevin's catty older sister Megan and hasn't acted since Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.

After retiring from acting aged 15 she became an Olympian, representing the United States for Judo in 1996 and 2000.

Now 43, she is a married full-time mum to two sons and a published author of The Not So Zen Mom.


Kevin's mean older brother Buzz was played by Devin Ratray, who was just 13 when he starred in his most famous role.

Now 43, he's continued acting – more recently appearing in 2013 films Nebraska, Blue Ruin and R.I.P.D and the 2016 film Master Minds.

He's also in a band called Little Bill and the Beckleys.


Macaulay's real-life brother Kieran Culkin played his cousin Fuller in the popular films.

The 38-year-old has continued acting and was nominated for the Best Actor Golden Globe for his breakout role Igby Goes Down, in 2002.

Kieran also appeared in Fargo and previously dated Emma Stone. He married his current partner Jazz Charton in 2013.


Another of Kevin's horrible siblings, Jeff famously called him "a disease".

Played by Mike C. Maronna, the 43-year-old now works behind the cameras – as a lighting technician on films.

He also does a podcast called Danny and Mike.


Angela Goethals, also 41, played Kevin's older sister Linnie – the girl behind the infamous Les Incompetents scene.

She went onto star in Jerry Maguire (1996), Spanglish (2004) and shows like Grey's Anatomy, CSI and 24.

She married fellow actor Russel Soder in 2005 and the couple have one kid together.
