Macaulay Culkin is an American comedian. Best known as one of today’s top kids entertainers, he has been put on the Modern Family series, Brides, and was even a contestant on The Simpsons. However, his real talent lies in his acting. He has appeared in over thirty films, both good and bad. In fact, his role as Dan doll in the Home Alone series was one of his first major acting jobs. Based on the book, The Dump, Culkin played Kevin Keller a young boy who moved with his family from Texas to Connecticut following his parents divorce.
After several years living in San Francisco, Kevin and his family had finally returned to their home in Texas. Having settled into their new home, they started to make friends with some of their neighbors. One of these neighbors was Lisa Rivers, a beautiful and smart young woman whom Macaulay fell in love with early. Slowly but surely, the two developed an attraction to each other. Finally, Macaulay went to visit her at her home one evening while he was supposed to do some work for the day.
Lisa had invited him over to her house, which she had decorated to look like a European country house. As expected, Macaulay was instantly attracted to the elegant and beautiful private quarters that Lisa had designed. Lisa looked wonderful, in fact she really looked the part of a European royalty. In fact, this is where the concept of “the party monster” came about. Macaulay would later say:

The following day, Macaulay was nominated for an Academy Award for his performance of Maya Angelou in What Happened During The Molestation Trial. He was only twenty-one years old, yet this achievement made him the youngest actor ever to be nominated for an Academy Award for a Leading Role.

This movie went on to become one of the highest grossing films of all time. This was also at the time when Annapurna was cast as Macaulay’s real mother.
Macaulay later played the title role in Disney’s Finding Nemo, which starred Anne Hathaway, Sidney Poitier, Dabney Coleman, Marlon Brando, and renegotiated star Streeter and Cate Blanchett. Finally, in 2021 he returned to the big screen in the universally acclaimed The Wolf Of Wall Street. He is currently reprising his role of greedy investor Gordon Gecko in the sequel of this film. He has proven again that regardless of your age or experience, being a leading man can lead you to stardom. Hopefully you will discover some of Macaulay’s acting abilities soon.
