Macaulay Culkin’s performances in the ‘Home Alone’ franchise, ‘Richie Rich’, and ‘My Girl’ shaped the childhoods of most 90s kids. But it turns out that his Twitter game is EVEN STRONGER.
Self-deprecating humor, interesting and unique insights, he is sharing it all and he’s absolutely shameless. He’s out here forming spoof bands that only sing about pizza, and denying his own death at LEAST twice a year. Check out some of his funniest tweets – your life was nothing before @IncredibleCulk.

Actor Macaulay Culkin isn’t exactly a stranger to fame. But when he was a child star, Twitter wasn’t a thing. Now, as an adult, he’s obviously familiar with social media. And yet he had a funny reaction to finding out that he was trending after some big news came out. Here’s what happened.
Culkin is best known for starring in the beloved ’90s holiday classic Home Alone. He got his start years before, appearing in films like Uncle Buck. However, following years on the big screen, he chose to take a break after the flop that was Richie Rich.
Culkin hasn’t felt like he had to stick to one thing. He was in a comedy band, The Pizza Underground. And he has a podcast, as well as a website, both of which are named Bunny Ears. He has famous guests (like Lizzo) on the show. But it’s also a parody of celebrity culture.
On that subject, Culkin has taken to making fun of both himself and his past roles from time to time. When a Home Alone remake was announced at Disney+, he didn’t hesitate to chime in with his own interpretation. (Check post no.22 on this list)
Being a child star comes with a lot of baggage. Culkin eventually returned to the big screen as a young adult, portraying teenagers in films such as Party Monster and Saved! Since then, his roles have been sporadic.
Naturally, the internet went crazy with the news that Culkin was cast in one of the most popular shows on TV. And the actor, to his credit, was ever humble. Or perhaps he’s just showing off some of his trademark humor.
Hours after the announcement, Culkin tweeted, “I just woke up and saw I was trending. Can someone explain what’s going on? Did I die again??” We’re pretty sure he knows exactly what’s going on, and can’t wait to see him on American Horror Story in the fall.
During an interview with Ellen Degeneres, Culkin also mentioned what it was like to turn 18 and have an absolute mountain of money come his way from his successful child-acting days. “I felt like some kid worked really, really hard, and I inherited all of his money. It allows me to treat everything like a hobby. I do nothing for my dinner nowadays.” While all of that money he made with Home Alone has set Culkin up for life, he’s also found how hard it is to break back into Hollywood after leaving.
Now, however, Macaulay Culkin seems content to live his life mostly out of the spotlight, hanging out in Paris where he kind of does whatever he feels like. In 2018, he said it’s hard for him to live a normal life because everyone recognizes him everywhere, and fans on the street always want him to recreate his famous hands-on-face “scream” look from Home Alone. But even though he hit the apex of fame so young, he doesn’t seem crushed about anything. In August 2018, Culkin told People that he and his girlfriend, Brenda Song, “have a good life” which is honestly all anybody can ask for.
