As a ’90s kid, Macaulay Culkin’s several performances pretty much defined my childhood. He’s mainly known for starring in the Home Alone franchise, My Girl and Richie Rich.
Decades later, he’s now continuing to entertain us as adults, however, this time he’s doing it online and not on the big screen, which basically gives us an unfiltered version of our favorite childhood actor. The actor has some pretty hilarious Tweets and most of us weren’t even aware of that. His insight is pretty unique and like most ’90s kids, he loves self-deprecating humor.
Here are so of Macaulay Culkin’s best tweets, he’s absolutely shameless and not to forget, quite funny.
Culkin stayed pretty busy in Hollywood in the years that followed Home Alone’s release. His stardom was firmly established in 1991 due to multiple factors, he hosted Saturday Night Live, landed a role in Saturday morning cartoon series Wish Kid and even made an appearance in Michael Jackson’s Black or White music video. However, his career declined little by little after 1992’s Home Alone 2: Lost in New York and 1993 thriller The Good Son.
In 1994, the movies he had starred in ended up being box office flops, which has a major effect of the actor’s career at the ripe age of 14 years old.
Culkin mentioned during an interview with Ellen Degeneres that turning 18 was absolutely insane for him after mountains of money came his way. His successful child-acting days definitely paid off.
“I felt like some kid worked really, really hard, and I inherited all of his money. It allows me to treat everything like a hobby. I do nothing for my dinner nowadays.”
Home Alone basically set Culkin up for life but finding a break back into Hollywood is the hardest past.
