Christmas is incomplete without the reruns of the fan-favorite holiday film ‘Home Alone’. It has been almost 33 years since the first film in the franchise came out. It was a breakthrough film for Catherine O’Hara, and it launched the career of then-child artist Macaulay Culkin.
Now, after 30 years, the core cast of ‘Home Alone’, Catherine O’Hara and Macaulay Culkin, was reunited at the Hollywood Walk of Fame event. Culkin was getting his star inducted during the prestigious event. Macaulay came with his son, daughter, and Brenda Song. Both the actors gave moving speeches and shed some tears while sharing the iconic moment.

One of the best franchises that is still revisited by many families, ‘Home Alone’, will be forever great due to the impeccable performance of Macaulay Culkin. And it is not only us, but the Emmy-winning artist, Catherine O’Hara, also believes it. Recently, the core cast of the film was present at Catherine’s and Macaulay’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star induction ceremony.
During Macaulay Culkin’s ceremony, Catherine O’Hara gave a moving speech. She said, “‘Home Alone’ was, is, and always will be a beloved global sensation. The reason it’s that [and] the reason families all over the world can’t let a year go by without watching and loving Home Alone together is because of Macaulay Culkin.”
The ‘Schitt’s Creek’ star praised Culkin’s performance and said that it was “the most natural thing in the world to do.” She called him the “dearest thing” and shooting the film felt like the cast and crew invaded Kevin McCallister’s home, and he went along with it.
While including her speech, Catherine O’Hara said, “Thank you for including me, your fake mom who left you home alone not once but twice, to share in this happy occasion. I’m so proud of you.”
