During the '90s Macaulay Culkin was a powerhouse child actor. He starred in everything from Uncle Buck to Richie Rich. However, by the mid '90s Culkin had had enough of stardom and decided to step back from the spotlight. Over the years, he has done some voice work on the Adult Swim show Robot Chicken, and he starred in the 2004 dark comedy Saved! alongside Mandy Moore and Jena Malone. In the late '90s Culkin was briefly married to actress Rachel Miner, and he had a long-term relationship with Mila Kunis. In a rare interview in 2004 with Larry King, Culkin expressed his desire to keep his personal life private. He said, "It's something—like I said, once you start giving people things and they start expecting things and so I try keep my private life private overall." Still, it looks like Kevin McCallister isn't the only one who appreciated a "lovely cheese pizza", Culkin is a part of The Pizza Underground, a comedy rock band with a musical focus on pizza. This year he also played himself on the TV Land show, The Jim Gaffigan Show. He is currently in a relationship with actress Jordan Lane Price.

Still, Heard has had some reservations about his career post the '90s. In a interview back in 2008 with 411mania.com he said, "I guess I went from being a young leading man to being just kind of a hack actor. I'll take whatever I can get now!"

Buzz is still one of the most memorable characters from the original Home Alone films. Not only did he have a terrifying tarantella and a collection of Playboys, he was also the master of terrorizing his baby brother Kevin. Since leaving the McCallister's world behind, Devin Ratray has still had some success in Hollywood including projects like Marvel's Agent Carter and Louie. He also had a role in the 2013 Oscar-nominated movie, Nebraska. Oddly enough in 2007, a documentary film crew followed Ratray's attempts to win the heart of then-US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Despite all of this, Retray is still most recognized as Buzz. In a 2009 interview with Starpulse he said, "People don't believe it a lot of times...So I go through a lot of, 'Yeah it's me" and then, "Oh, you're lying, shut up," and then I say "Okay, I don't really want to get into an existential argument over who I am really when I'm still searching myself.' But they always have these shocked, positive expressions or reactions. They really can't believe that it's this character that they grew up with. It's a mind trip for most people." Retray is in a band called Little Bill and the Beckleys.
