Home Alone was one of the most loved movie-series among children and adults alike in the early 1990s, so was the face of the little mischievous Kevin McCallister. Macaulay Carson Culkin first came into showbiz when he was 4 appearing in a number of stage shows. By the time he was 9, Mack had become a familiar face on the big screens then his biggest gig came along in 1990.
It’s no longer news anymore that the Uncle Buck (1989) actor has since disappeared from the Hollywood limelight. He gave up his very promising career as an actor after 1994’s Richie Rich but this never bothered him as he clearly never has to work again with all the fortune he’s acquired in his younger years, he was in fact the first child in Hollywood to receive a million dollar salary.
