Actor, television host, and stand-up comedian, Bob Saget, took to Instagram a few days ago to share a snapshot of him posing alongside Macaulay Culkin.

THE SON HE ALWAYS WANTED

Saget went as far as to call Culkin “the son [he] always wanted to have” through the caption to the photo. He wrote:

“Had fun doing my friend Macaulay Culkin’s [Bunny Ears Podcast, coming] out soon. He’s the son I always wanted to have. We coulda had a full home alone.”

In the snapshot, Saget is looking straight at the camera while Culkin slightly turns away from it. 

The 63-year-old comedian explained that Culkin was deliberately doing so because it was a style that he had adopted. “It’s his ‘thang’ and I dig it,” Saget detailed.

FROM ACTOR TO CONTENT CREATOR

Culkin has been running his lifestyle website, Bunny Ears, since 2017. The website serves content based on satire and other lifestyle-related articles and podcasts.

Earlier this year, Culkin made headlines after appearing in another podcast for a candid interview, where he described his friendship with the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, as “normal.”

A HOLLYWOOD HIATUS

Despite earning worldwide fame and recognition with his roles in “Home Alone” movies in the ’90s, Culkin almost disappeared from the Hollywood scene as he grew up.

Some of his later movies could not leave the same impression among the audience as “Home Alone” did.

Unfortunately, Culkin was even nominated as the worst actor for his moves including “Getting Even With Dad,” “Richie Rich,” and “The Pagemaster.”

All these failures in movies forced him to take a long break from acting only to make a comeback in the year 2003 with the movie, “Party Monster.”
