In Home Alone, Buzz’s girlfriend was played by a boy [YouTube]
Home Alone was released in 1990, and tells the story of eight year old Kevin McCallister – played by Macauley Culkin – as he attempts to protect his family home from robbers.
And while everyone across the UK has watched the classic over and over again – usually around Christmas time – there’s been one this no Home Alone fans have ever spotted.
One of the scenes in the film sees Kevin going through his brother Buzz’s things – and stumbles across a framed picture of his older brother’s girlfriend.
Kevin isn’t the nicest about the girl, commenting: “Buzz, your girlfriend… WOOF!” after discovering the snap.

And while most people believe you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover, the saying could not be more real in these circumstances.
It turns out that Buzz’s girlfriend is actually played by a boy – and for good reasons.
Devin Ratray – who played Buzz in Home Alone – revealed: “[They] decided it would be unkind to put a girl in that role of just being funny-looking.
“The art director had a son who was more than willing to volunteer for the part.

“I think if he had known it would become the highest-grossing family comedy of all time, he might have had second thoughts about it.”
In other Home Alone news, it has recently been revealed what Kevin’s mum, Kate McCallister, looks like now.
