Drinked Pepsi and peed in bed: where is Kieran Culkin from Home Alone now and what is he doing, who has long been in the shadow of his brother

How has Kieran Culkin changed and what is he doing now

There is hardly a person in the world who hasn't watched the world's "most Christmas" movie, Home Alone. Everyone knows about Kevin McCallister's lead actor, Macaulay Culkin. But do you remember Fuller McCallister? A charming boy with huge round glasses who loved to drink Pepsi and peed in bed. This small but bright role went to Macaulay's younger brother, Kieran Culkin.

For a long time, Kieran remained in the shadow of his older brother, who played many leading roles in popular films as a child. However, today the younger Culkin has definitely become a leader, as evidenced by his numerous awards in recent years. OBOZ.UA decided to talk about the success of Fuller McCallister and show what he looks like now.

Macaulay and Kieran's father was a Broadway actor who could not properly provide for a large family - there were seven children in the family. So, literally from the time they were in diapers, the man took his heirs to various auditions, pursuing rather selfish goals. By the way, it is known that children were severely punished for unsuccessful auditions.

The real success and fame came after the triumph of both parts of Home Alone, which became, without exaggeration, cult. However, this success and fame were more about Makolei Kalkin. His younger brother, meanwhile, was content to play minor roles.

As we all know, the crazy popularity played a cruel joke on the favorite of millions. "Kevin McCallister", as is often the case with child stars, started using illegal substances. Luckily, he managed to overcome his addiction, but it had a negative impact on his career. Meanwhile, Kieran did not succumb to such side effects of fame and worked hard.

Eventually, his filmography was replenished with such successful projects as Father of the Bride, Nowhere to Run, Giant, Scott Pilgrim vs. For the latter film, by the way, critics praised Culkin Jr. But the most successful of all the successes happened to the actor in 2018, when he was cast as Roman Roy in one of the most popular TV series of the last decade, The Heirs.

The actor himself once joked: "What is it about me that makes me get hired to play roles of scoundrels? I think it all started with Fuller. And now all the roles I play are Fuller McCallister."

Fans call Kieran Culkin a new crush, and critics lavishly praise his work. The success of the actor is evidenced by his awards for his role in The Heirs: Emmy (2023), Golden Globe (2024), Screen Actors Guild Award (2022), Critics' Choice (2022, 2024).

Kieran is also a happy family man. He dedicated his acceptance speech to his wife, model Jezza Charton, when he received the coveted Emmy statuette. The couple legalized their relationship in 2013. They currently have two young children: daughter Kinzie Su Culkin (September 13, 2019) and son Wilder Wolfe Culkin (August 17, 2021).
