Los Angeles, Aug 27 (IANS) Actor Macaulay Culkin, who became a household name in the nineties as a child star in the first two films of the blockbuster Home Alone franchise, is now 40. He has ensured his fans feel old too, courtesy a series of hilarious tweets.
“Hey guys, wanna feel old? I’m 40. You’re welcome,” he began.
“It’s my gift to the world: I make people feel old. I’m no longer a kid, that’s my job,” continued the actor, who is best known for starring in “Home Alone” (1990) and “Home Alone 2: Lost In New York” (1992).
“I’m 40 I think it’s about time to start my midlife crisis. I’m thinking of picking up surfing. Do you all have any suggestions?” Culkin posted for his fans on Twitter, on his birthday, August 26.

Many of his admirers responded to his tweets.

Another suggested: “You can start a hobby collecting high quality indie comics.”
As a child actor, Culkin also started in film like “The Good Son”, “Getting Even With Dad” and “Richie Rich”.
