Remember Macaulay Culkin, the darling prankster who starred in the Christmas classic Home Alone? Well, 17 years later, the internet has some thoughts about a new photo of Macaulay Culkin that's been gradually making the rounds, and folks, the glow up is real.
Throughout his career, Culkin has road-tested a number of aesthetics over the years. In the early 2000s, he kept his face clean shaven and sported short, coiffed hair. After shrinking back from the spotlight for some time, he re-emerged in 2013 to promote his pizza-themed parody band, The Pizza Undergound. In a viral video tied to the project, he can be seen with a full beard and mustache as well as shoulder-length hair, which he'd later grow out several more inches.
Then, this week brought a new picture of the now-36-year-old star looking quite different: He's cut his hair, started wearing hip glasses, and trimmed his facial hair to the perfect 5 o'clock shadow. Needless to say, people were taken aback, but very here for it. "We going to talk about how good Macaulay Culkin looks lately???? That's a bounce back that deserves hella recognition," wrote a Twitter user named Tara.
