For many people who grew up in the 1990s, Home Alone is a film that ages alongside them. When you’re a child, you feel an immediate kinship with Macaulay Culkin’s Kevin, sharing in his delight at being able to run around the house entirely rule-free. The older you get, though, the more you find yourself goggling at the actions of John Heard and Catherine O’Hara‘s parents. How on earth could they manage to leave their youngest child behind? Was it really that easy to breeze through airport security in the ‘90s? Why do I still feel so sympathetic towards them even after all that?
Haven’t you ever wondered what happened to that little kid from the classic ‘Hook’ movie or the jock from ’10 Things I Hate About You?’ (No, we’re not talking about the ABC Family series.) These stars from the ’80s and ’90s have all but faded from the spotlight since abominations like ‘Two Broke Girls’ and ‘I Hate My Teenage Daughter’ have graced the screens… until now.
