Macaulay Culkin Turns 34 Today — What Does He Look Like Now? (PHOTOS)

Nothin' like a former child star's birthday to remind us of the slow, constant march of time! Macaulay Culkin, who turns 34 years old today, August 26, landed his first Broadway role at age 4, and was gracing our silver screens by the time he was 8, starting with 1988's Rocket Gibraltar. But Macaulay’s most notable role has to be Kevin McAllister in 1990's Home Alone and its 1992 sequel, Home Alone 2: Lost in New York! His heartbreaking performance in 1991's My Girl cemented his place in the pop culture canon.

After taking nearly a decade out of the spotlight, he returned for some minor film roles in the early to mid 2000s, bursting onto the mainstream festival circuit in Party Monster and Saved. He was a pretty major tabloid staple for a while, too, thanks to a 2004 drug arrest and a 9-year relationship with Mila Kunis.

Since Macaulay was a big-screen darling in his tweens, many tend to think of him as a permanent child, eating pizza straight out of the box a la Richie Rich. Actually, that's not far off — click through to see what we mean.
