This Is What All the "Home Alone" Kids Look Like Now
Right at the start of Home Alone - before actually leaving Kevin McCallister for the holidays - Kevin McCallister complains that there are too many people in his house. In addition to his four siblings, his aunt, uncle and a few cousins are staying before the family's big Christmas trip to Paris. “This house is so full of people it makes me sick,” he yells. "When I grow up and get married, I will live alone!" This is a harbinger of course, but Kevin is right. There are many people in the house and you will not be alone if you confuse the home alone children from time to time. This movie is full of child actors and it's difficult to keep track of them all.
It's been 30 years - yes, that's three decades - since the film first hit theaters, and all of the kids on Home Alone have grown up. Some take on bigger roles in Hollywood, others start new careers, and in the case of a McCallister kid, a stint in the Olympics! Read on to find out what happened to all these young actors, and to see what happened to a child star from another classic Christmas movie: So is the actor who played Cindy Lou who now looks.
