For many people, Macaulay Culkin (42) is just as much a part of Christmas as the tree, the goose and the pot of red cabbage. Thanks to his cult role in the holiday classic Home Alone, Culkin not only garnered a fair amount of childhood fame, but also a firm place in the hearts of die-hard Christmas movie fans. However, there are countless examples that illustrate the downside of early fame. Many child stars like Britney Spears (41) or Demi Lovato (30) subsequently developed psychological problems or even became addicted to alcohol and drugs. Macaulay Culkin is no exception. Over the years, he has made headlines with his excessive lifestyle. But in recent years he seems to have caught himself and has even become a dad!

“Matilda” star Mara Wilson has changed quite a bit
Mara Wilson (35) also became world famous at a young age for her role as little “Matilda”. In the film of the same name, which is based on a book by Roald Dahl, she plays a highly gifted little girl alongside Danny DeVito (78) who, with the help of the teacher Miss Honey, has to defend herself against her unyielding parents and the nasty Miss Trunchbull. Unlike Macaulay Culkin, Mara Wilson has almost completely withdrawn from the public eye. She rarely keeps appointments. But when she hits the red carpet, it’s easy to see just how much she’s changed since her days as Matilda.
