Macaulay Culkin, the iconic face of Home Alone, enjoyed a touching moment with his onscreen mother, Catherine O’Hara, at his Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony.

The evening celebrated not just Culkin’s accomplishments in the entertainment business, but also the continuing memory of the acclaimed 1990 picture.

As Culkin, now 43, was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, O’Hara, 69, approached the stage to pay tribute to her on-screen son and reflect on the remarkable adventure they went on together over the previous 33 years since the debut of Home Alone.

O’Hara eloquently defined Home Alone as a “beloved global sensation,” emphasizing that families all across the world have made watching and cherishing the film an annual rite.

She praised Culkin with Home Alone’s eternal appeal, claiming that his portrayal of Kevin McCallister was nothing short of flawless. “I know you worked really hard, I know you did,” O’Hara said of Culkin, “but you made acting look like the most natural thing in the world to do.”

O’Hara praised Culkin’s sense of humor, describing it as “sweet and twisted” yet completely sympathetic. She praised his intelligence and sense of humor, which she saw as essential for survival at any age.

O’Hara ended her remarks with a loving thank you to Culkin for involving her in the momentous event, referring to him as her ‘false mum’ who left him ‘home alone not once, but twice’.

Culkin was evidently impacted by the emotional encounter between the two, wiping away tears as he stood near the platform.
