Seth Rogen, Chris Evans and Macaulay Culkin Had No Idea The Gangster Film in “Home Alone” Was Fake

On November 16, 1990, 28 years ago, 20th Century Fox released the classic Christmas comedy film, “Home Alone,” starring Macaulay Culkin as Kevin McCallister. Written and produced by John Hughes, the film became the highest-grossing live action comedy film of all time in the U.S., and worldwide until 2011. With four sequels created in its honor, the film has been named one of the best Christmas films of all time. 

However, despite its widespread reception, a recent revelation about the popular film has left fans – and celebrities – skeptical about their entire childhood. 

On Christmas, Seth Rogen took to Twitter to reveal that he recently found out the black-and-white gangster film Kevin watches – and quotes with “Keep the change, ya filthy animal” – isn’t a real movie. 

“My entire childhood, I thought the old-timey movie that Kevin watches in Home Alone (Angels With Filthy Souls) was actually an old movie,” Rogen said on Tuesday, as many of his celebrity peers chimed in with disbelief. 

“It’s NOT???” “Captain America’s,” Chris Evans said of the less-than-two-minute clip made by film director, Chris Columbus, as Nick Kroll responded, “It isn’t? (Dead Serious.)” with “Chrisley Knows Best” star Chase Chrisley adding, “is this a joke?!” 

Even Culkin, 38, who starred in the film as a young kid, replied, “Me too!”
