Want to feel old?
Perennial kid Macaulay Culkin, star of “Home Alone” and many other movies, turns 40 today. I remember him as a kid, playing games at a place Hackers, Hoops, and Hitters in Chelsea back in the early 90s. He was a lovely, gracious kid then and he’s turned into a smart adult who’s weathered storms and come out stronger.
Macaulay is many things– actor, friend, unofficial godfather to Michael Jackson’s kids, and great friend to Michael during his 2005 trial. He’s always told the truth and stood up for justice.
He also has a devilish sense of humor that comes out in his Tweets, podcasts, and posts. A good humor is the best defense, and I think he’s figured that out. You can go a long way once you understand that.
He wisecracked on Twitter: “It’s my gift to the world: I make people feel old. I’m no longer a kid, that’s my job.”
Happy Birthday, Mac!
