'Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals!' – Home Alone actor gets Hollywood Walk of Fame star

Macaulay Culkin, who played the eight-year-old Kevin McCallister in Home Alone, has unveiled his Walk of Fame star on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles.

At the ceremony he was reunited with actress Catherine O’Hara, who played his mum in the 1990 hit film. She thanked him for “including me, your fake mum who left you home alone not once, but twice”.

Culkin was also joined by his fiancee, actress Brenda Song, and their two young sons – and said the honour was important to him as a father.
