Dad’s New Job
Naturally, a young star relies on his or her parents for support and guidance. Thus, it seemed fairly normal that Culkin’s father took over as his manager. However, it caused some tensions because he tended to be rough on Macaulay. During an interview years later, Macaulay explained his father forced him to memorize the most complex monologues of a script. Though this helped him shine in his field, it strained their relationship.
Becoming A Star
Finally, came his 1990 role in the Christmas classic, Home Alone. It’s not just that Macaulay was perfect for Kevin, they actually designed this character for him! That’s right, they molded the character in order to showcase his talents and fit his personality. The movie reunited him with much of the cast and crew from Uncle Buck including legendary director John Hughes. It shot this boy to instant fame.
