Macaulay Culkin Sightings in Montana
Macaulay Culkin is best known for his role as Kevin McCallister in the most successful Christmas movie EVER. Home Alone has been an annual Christmas "must watch" for families for nearly 30 years. But, every year around Christmas, there always seems to be reports of Macaulay Culkin sightings in Montana. It is believed that Macaulay spends holidays in Billings. So we did a little digging, and it is not just a holiday myth.
Some may remember that Macaulay's parents went through an ugly divorce, right around the peak of Macaulay's "Home Alone" fame. His mother, Patricia Brentrup, moved from New York to Billings to marry her High School sweetheart.
According to Vanity Fair
Patricia Brentrup, held it all together. The family’s longtime agent and manager, Emily Gerson Saines, described her as someone who “has maintained strong family values, like the family having a meal together, the Christmas tree, Thanksgiving. These are all important things to Patty, and she instilled that in her kids.” According to Kieran Culkin, he still has “a great relationship” with his mother, who, after 30 years of living in New York, married a different man and moved to Billings, Montana. “She’s taught me a lot. She’s a wonderful woman.”
With a Mom who holds family holidays in such high regard, it is no surprise we hear of "Kevin McCallister" sightings around Christmas.
