Macaulay Culkin was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame during a ceremony held on Friday (December 1st). As part of the festivities, Culkin reunited with Home Alone co-star Catherine O’Hara, who delivered an emotional speech in the actor’s honor.

“Home Alone was, is and always will be a beloved global sensation,” began O’Hara, who played the mother of Culkin’s character, Kevin McAllister, in two films.

“The reason families all over the world can’t let a year go by without watching and loving Home Alone together is because of Macaulay Culkin.”

“I know you worked really hard. I know you do. But you made acting look like the most natural thing of the world to do,” O’Hara continued. “Macaulay, a 10-year-old boy, this beautiful, dear little 10-year-old boy, was called a superstar, a moneymaker. One of the hottest leading young men in Hollywood. How does anyone survive that?”

“Well, I believe you’d have to possess a certain quality, a gift that dear John Hughes, obviously recognized: your sense of humor. It’s a sign of intelligence in a child, and a key to surviving life at any age. And you have, from what I see you brought that sense of sweet, yet twisted, yet totally relatable sense of humor to everything that you have chosen to do since Home Alone.”

“Thank you for including me, your fake mom who left you home alone not once, but twice, to share in this happy occasion. I’m so proud of you,” O’Hara concluded as Culkin fought back tears.

Culkin’s lifelong friend, actress Natasha Lyonne, also delivered remarks, while Seth Green, Paris Jackson, and several members of his Culkin’s family were in attendance.

During his own speech, Culkin recognized his wife, Brenda Song, saying: “You are absolutely everything, you’re my champion. You’re the only person happier for me today than I am. You’re not only the best woman I’ve ever known, you’re the best person I’ve ever known. You’ve given me just all my purpose. You’ve given me family.”

He then concluded his remarks with a callback to Home Alone 2: “I just wanna say Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals.”
