Los Angeles: In a poignant and celebratory moment, Macaulay Culkin, the iconic child actor of the 1990s, received his well-deserved star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Friday. Known for his memorable roles in classics like Home Alone 1 (1990), Home Alone 2: Lost in New York(1992), My Girl(1991), Uncle Buck (1989), Richie Rich (1994), Culkin’s career showcased a remarkable range at a notably young age.

Now 43 and married to The Suite Life of Zack and Cody actress Brenda Song, with whom he shares a daughter and a son, Culkin’s life has seen both personal and professional evolution. Beyond acting, Culkin is also recognized as a talented musician, leading his own band named The Pizza Underground.

The comedy rock band, active from 2013 to 2018, humorously parodied songs by the Velvet Underground, infusing pizza-themed names, and lyrics into their performances. Culkin, playing the kazoo, percussion, and vocals, was joined by bandmates Matt Colbourn, Phoebe Kreutz, Deenah Vollmer, and Austin Kilham. Notably, the band distributed boxed pizzas to their live audiences, adding a whimsical touch to their performances.

At the Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony, Schitt’s Creek actress Catherine O’Hara, who played Culkin’s mother in the Home Alone series, delivered a heartfelt speech. She reminisced about Culkin’s early days in Hollywood, where he was hailed as a “superstar” and “one of the hottest leading young men.” O’Hara marvelled at Culkin’s ability to make acting look effortless, joking about leaving him home twice in reference to their on-screen collaborations.

Emotional and teary-eyed, Culkin expressed gratitude to his fiancé, Brenda Song, acknowledging her as his champion and the source of his purpose and family. “You’ve become one of my three favourite people,” he declared, recognizing the profound impact Song has had on his life.

Reflecting on the Walk of Fame honour, Culkin shared a mix of humility and excitement. “It’s my life the way it normally is. But also, at the same time, I feel honoured, and I think it’s super cool,” he said. “I get to be a part of that. That’s really cool.”

As Macaulay Culkin’s star now joins the illustrious Walk of Fame, it symbolizes not just a recognition of past brilliance but also a celebration of his enduring contributions to the world of entertainment.
