Home Alone fans delighted at Macaulay Culkin in advert

Macaulay Culkin has reprised his best-known role just in time for Christmas, and his fans are delighted.

The Home Alone star worked with Google to recreate scenes from the 1990 family classic, using the company's home hub to do the work for him.

Promoting the advert, Culkin tweeted: "Have you ever wondered what Kevin McCallister is like as an adult? Me neither. But just in case you're curious you should totally watch this."

But fans are less concerned about the product and more with Culkin himself, with several tweeting about how happy they are to see the former child star looking healthier than ever.

One wrote: "Healthy looking Macaulay Culkin is the reason for the season."

 

Another added: "Macaulay Culkin is trending and it's not the news I was expecting to see. Shame on me, good to see he's doing well!"

Culkin, now 38, shot to fame playing Kevin McAllister in Home Alone, a role he played again two years later for Home Alone 2: Lost In New York.

The first film sees a cunning Culkin outwit two would-be burglars after getting left in his family home alone when the rest jet off on holiday, thinking he is with them.

Childhood stardom took something of a toll on the young Culkin, and in 2004 he was arrested in Oklahoma for possession of marijuana and two controlled substances.

The arrest saw him jailed briefly before being given a suspended sentence after pleading guilty in court.

His personal life also included estrangement from his father, retirement at 14, a marriage at age 18, and several years being dubbed a recluse as he kept away from the public eye.

Culkin also found himself tied up in allegations surrounding Michael Jackson, having become a friend of the singer at a young age. He defended Jackson in court over sexual assault charges.

Despite an early retirement, Culkin now describes himself as an actor, writer, painter, and is the founder of a website called Bunnyears.com, which includes pieces like "Finding Myself: Why I Joined A Gang Of Sewer-Dwelling Martial Artists".
