Macaulay Culkin

Born: 8/26/1980
Birthplace: New York City

Child actor who vaulted into the limelight through the blockbuster movie, Home Alone (1990), which pitted Culkin's clever Kevin McCallister against bumbling crooks played by Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern. Following the commercial success of the original movie, Culkin found fame and fortune in a sequel, Home Alone 2: Lost in New York (1992) and other films, but his screen success has more recently been overshadowed by legal and financial problems involving his parents. In 1998 at age 17 he married stage actress Rachel Miner, also 17. They were separated in 2000. Branching into stage performance, Culkin appeared to good reviews in a theater production of Madame Melville in London.
