After hitting it huge with Home Alone, you better hope he got himself a financial advisor! Considering the budget was $18 million, it’s amazing to know it grossed to a total of a whopping $476.7 million once it hit theaters! In addition, for his role in My Girl(1991), Macaulay became the first child actor to earn $1 million for one movie. Yeah, so we weren’t kidding about a financial advisor. Home Alone, out in 1992 grossed over $350 million and had a budget of $20 million. Of course with the fame came celebrity fans, but not without some scandal.
