Macaulay Culkin Reveals Why He Doesn't Watch Home Alone On Ellen

Former child actor Macaulay Culkin made a rare public appearance on Monday's episode of Ellen, where he revealed that he tries to avoid watching the beloved 1990 film Home Alone. 

"It’s background radiation at Christmastime," he admitted. "I’ve had people who want to sit down and watch it with me, which is both flattering and creepy." 

He added that it's hard for him to enjoy the movie as an objective viewer. "I’m remembering that day on set, like, how I was hiding my Pepsi behind the couch," he explained. "I can’t watch it the same way other people can." 

The 37-year-old also shared that he tries to avoid going out during the holidays because fans go nuts if they see him. 

"It’s my season….It’s Macaulay season," he quipped. "I try to go out less and less around that time of year.”
