It seems that Brenda Fricker's portrayal of a dove woman in Home Alone 2: Lost in New York is art that mimics life.
In a recent interview with Ray D’Arcy's Radio 1 show, she revealed that her vacation plans this year are pretty lonely. "I'm 75 now and I would be lying if I said it would be a good and happy Christmas because I am old and I live alone," said the Dublin-based actress, according to the New York Post. "It can be very dark."
Fricker went on to say that she turns off her phone and lowers the blinds when she is home alone. "I prep some good programs, have my dog, and get through that way," he added. "I don't want to sound negative, but it's a different kind of Christmas, that's all."
While Christmas is dreary for Fricker, she says New Year's Eve is even worse. "Although I don't find Christmas that difficult, I find New Year's Eve difficult," she said.
According to the Post, Fricker has reportedly been unmarried since her nine-year marriage to director Barry Davies ended in 1988. She also told Radio 1 that she is not speaking to Macauley Culkin, who appears as Kevin McCallister in the first two Home Alone films. "No, I'm not hearing [from Macaulay], I'm worried about him, but I'm out of touch with him," she said.
Fricker retired from acting in 2014 after a six-decade career and won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the 1989 Daniel Day Lewis drama My Left Foot.
Over the weekend, Saturday Night Live celebrated the 30th anniversary of the character's first Home Alone and the character's most recent online revival, starring none other than Kristen Wiig Fricker's iconic character.
