While filming Home Alone, actor shared his experience and told how funny a parent could be. He stated:
“We were the only two people in the movie who didn’t know how funny the movie was, because we were the parents that had left our child, and she had to run around hysterically, having abandoned a seven-year-old or whatever he was.”
