Profile Bio Text
Macaulay Carson Culkin (born August 26, 1980) is an American actor. He is best known for portraying Kevin McCallister in Home Alone and the title character of Richie Rich. At the height of his fame he was regarded as the most successful child-actor since Shirley Temple. He was ranked # 2 in VH1`s list of the "100 Greatest Kid-Stars". Culkin was born and raised in the Yorkville area of Manhattan, New York, the son of Patricia Brentrup and Kit Culkin, a former stage actor with a long career on Broadway. Culkin was the couple`s third child of seven children; he has four brothers: Shane (born 1976), Kieran (born 1982), Christian (born 1987) and Rory (born 1989), and two sisters: Dakota (1979-2008) and Quinn (born 1984). Culkin is the nephew of actress Bonnie Bedelia, who is his father`s sister. During Culkin`s early childhood, the family lived in a small apartment; his mother was a telephone operator and his father worked as a sacristan at a local Catholic church. Culkin was raised an Irish Catholic and attended a Catholic school (St. Joseph`s School of Yorkville) before moving on to Professional Children`s School. Culkin also studied ballet at the School of American Ballet.
Culkin rose to international fame with his lead role as Kevin McCallister in the blockbuster film Home Alone (1990), where he was reunited with Uncle Buck`s writer and director John Hughes. He reprised the role of Kevin in the 1992 sequel Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, which was also a huge success. In 2009, Culkin appeared in a UK-based commercial for Aviva Insurance (formerly Norwich Union) to help promote their companies rebrand. Culkin stared into the camera citing the phrase "Remember me".
He lives in Los Angeles, California but still spends much of his time in New York City. Culkin is an avid professional wrestling fan and can be seen at the WWE`s WrestleMania VII pay-per-view as a spectator. Though raised for a time in the Roman Catholic faith, his father Kit later withdrew his children from the church, and Macaulay now explains himself as more spiritual than anything else. The 2004 film Saved!, in which Culkin starred, proved controversial among many in America`s Christian community. Culkin was also closely tied with entertainer Michael Jackson, with the two having a close relationship since Culkin`s childhood. He appeared in Jackson`s music video for the song "Black or White" and is also the godfather of Jackson`s oldest son Prince Michael Jackson I. He was married to Rachel Miner from 1998-2000.
