Macaulay Culkin Is Tired Of Yearly "Home Alone" Christmastime Fandom

Groundhog Culkin revealed that he has rarely seen the film since its release and joked that he doesn't go outside during the holiday season

"It's a curse and a blessing", he said. Ultimately, he took almost a decade off when he turned 14 to go to high school and simply be a regular person.

"No", he told Ellen DeGeneres when asked what he says when he's asked to do the face.

Macaulay Culkin would rather be home alone than go out during the holidays.

"I can get into any restaurant I want without a reservation", he admitted, "but while I'm there everyone's staring at me". "It's my 'season.' It's Macaulay season". And around Thanksgiving and Christmas, when the "Home Alone" films get played over and over again on TV, he tends to go out less and less. Culkin starred in the 1992 sequel, but the franchise has continued without him.

He also explained why he feels he can't watch Home Alone anymore. "We did a 15-year anniversary DVD commentary, I realized I hadn't seen it in like 15 years, whereas [director] Chris Columbus watched it the night before like a responsible human being", he recalled.

And remember the moment when young Kevin (Culkin) is supposedly reading Playboy magazine?

"They taped the pages closed, sadly", said Culkin. "It's not nice. It was exciting, though!"

Culkin explained why he also took a break from the movie industry in his early teens.

Explaining his hiatus from the movie business, he said: 'I was exhausted of it. Whether you enjoy its wacky shenanigans first and foremost or simply have it as part of your annual Christmas movie rotation, almost 30 years after it hit theaters, Home Alone is still considered a classic. It's a lot. I needed to grow and develop as a person.

'It was the smartest thing I possibly could've done, taking eight years off'.

As for his vast wealth, Culkin reveals he was given the money after he turned 18.

"I felt like some kid worked really, really hard and I inherited all his money", he said.

Though he doesn't revel in his wealth, Culkin admits, "It allows me to treat everything like a hobby".
