At the end of December, McCauley Culkin starred in a Google commercial, reminding everyone of his existence. The reaction to the video was mixed. For 24 years, the actor never managed to please the fans of Kevin McCallister. However, there are more successful examples - Kate Beckinsale rose to fame after "Intuition", and Cameron Diaz was included in the list of the richest female celebrities after filming on "Vacation Exchange".
McCauley Culkin - "Home Alone"
On December 19, Google posted on YouTube an advertisement for a voice assistant in which the matured Kevin McCallister is left alone at home again - McCauley Culkin repeated the most iconic scenes from the 1990 movie. Many fans of the original film dreamed of "seeing" the video - Kevin is not the same, and Google seems to have encroached on sacred things.
The actor is now 38 years old, 24 of which his acting career was not particularly successful. It all started with family problems that led to bad luck on the big screen. McCauley dabbled in music, but in 2016 his group broke up. You can find out about what the guy is doing now from his Instagram - he acts in commercials and participates in a TV show (in 2017 he was even invited by Ellen DeGeneres).
Cameron Diaz - "Swap Vacation"
The film "Exchange Vacation" was released in 2006. The light romantic picture did not claim to be the film of the decade, nevertheless, it grossed more than $ 200 million at the box office and became one of the main symbols of Christmas. Initially, the producers relied on a super-famous cast. Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, Black Jack and Jude Law were already world stars. And four years later, Forbes magazine included Cameron in the list of the richest famous women.
Diaz is now 46 years old. She is working on two films "Agent: 21st Century" and "Bobby Sue", and also develops her own project The Body Book, in which she has already released two books.
Emma Thompson - "Love Actually"
Writer and director Richard Curtis wrote all nine stories from Love Actually during a trip to Bali and put together an incredibly stellar cast for them. For example, real-life friends Emma Thompson and Hugh Grant agreed to play in the film for very small fees. The picture was released in 2003, and Emma was already an Oscar and Emmy winner. After the actress starred in more than 25 films. And now he is working on 8 films at once. The next high-profile premiere is the sequel to Men in Black.
Reese Witherspoon - "Four Christmases"
Reese Witherspoon was 32 years old during the filming of the comedy Four Christmases - the picture was released in 2008. Two years earlier, the actress won an Oscar for her role in Walk the Line and was nominated for a Golden Globe for Legally Blonde. Despite the cast (Reese's partner was Vince Vaughn), critics greeted the Christmas picture coldly, but people liked it and entered all the selections of the most famous New Year's films.
Reese Witherspoon is incredibly sensitive to trends, so in recent years she has only taken on super-successful projects. She is the producer of Big Little Lies and has already bought the film rights to another book by Liana Moriarty, Loyal, Mad, Guilty. And the actress is well aware of what a personal brand is - 15 million users have subscribed to her Instagram, who are very enthusiastic about any star's undertakings - from a recipe for a Christmas cake to a new book.
Diane Keaton - Hello Family, Love the Coopers
Diane Keaton began her career in 1965 and still manages to maintain a balance between filming in light romantic comedies and serious films (like the series "Young Daddy"). For her irony, directors of New Year's melodramas love her - the actress's filmography includes two "thematic" films! In the latest - "Love the Coopers" - Diane starred in 2015. After that, 4 more films were released with her participation, and the fifth "Poms" about residents of a nursing home will be released in 2019.
By the way, the actress is now 72 years old, and in her free time she cheerfully maintains an Instagram account, consulting with subscribers on quite everyday issues. Like "What to wear?" and "Which Halloween Costume to Choose?"
Kate Beckinsale - "Intuition"
The image of a romantic sweet girl did not particularly take root in the filmography of Kate Beckinsale. However, it was her roles in Pearl Harbor and the Christmas Intuition that made her a star. But after a couple of years it turned out that Kate looks better in a latex suit, portraying either a vampire or a hunter for them. The last big work of the actress is the film "The Only Living Guy in New York". Now Beckinsale is preparing for three premieres, willingly attending social events and shooting for glossy covers: the last one for the January issue of Tatler USA.
Sandra Bullock - "While You Slept"
In 1995, young Sandra starred in the romantic New Year's melodrama "While You Slept". A year earlier, “Speed” was released with her participation, so the popularity of the actress went up by leaps and bounds. While You Slept grossed over a billion dollars at the box office, Bullock went on to release four films a year.
Now the actress is more selective. Her latest works "Bird Box" and "Ocean's 8" were not assessed satisfactorily by everyone, but Sandra is hardly worried about this. At 54, she looks great (they say, not without the help of specialists) and is in demand in Hollywood.
