When we’re talking about Christmas, what’s the first movie that comes in your mind? It’s probably “Home Alone.” Though it’s been many years since the movie was first released, it is still stuck in our minds. Everyone loves a good reunion after all, along with some childish pranks.
Christmas may have already come and gone months ago, but hardly anyone can forget the sweet reunion of mother and son after the said son was accidentally left out, or boarded a different plane in the sequel. And in an interview in “Watch What Happens Live” with Andy Cohen, “Home Alone” mom Catherine O’Hara tells of her meeting Macaulay Culkin, who played her son Kevin after so many years.
O’Hara answered a viewer’s question via phone call if she kept in touch with Culkin.
“I saw him two years ago [or] a year-and-a-half ago at a Martin Mull art opening, and he was coming out, and he went, ‘Mommy!’, and I said, ‘Baby!’” O’Hara responded. She then added that her husband, production designer Bo Welch, also got into the cute moment and even took photos of O’Hara and Culkin together.
Wow! Talk about a sweet mother-and-son reunion, huh?
O’Hara appeared on “Watch What Happens Live” on Tuesday, Feb. 10, 2015, to promote her show “Schitt’s Creek” with her co-star Eugene Levy. The sitcom premiered on CBC last month and also premiered on Pop TV on Wednesday, Feb. 11, 2015.
Culkin, on the other hand, has been keeping his head low for some time now, though he did make the headlines in the past few years due to reported drug abuse, which was fueled by photos of him looking thin and sickly. Last November 2014, amid false death rumors, his Pizza Underground bandmates posted photos of them recreating corpse scenes from the 1989 comedy “Weekend at Bernie’s.”
