Fed-up mum of Home Alone lookalike says son compared to Macaulay Culkin ‘daily’

Join the Secret Elves to discover the best shopping deals and things to do this Christmas

The mum of Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin's doppelgänger is sick of lookalike comparisons.

Budding actor, Evan Annable, 10, from Swanwick, Derbyshire, cannot go anywhere without strangers saying he looks like the Christmas movie favourite.

Evan's mum, Andrea, 42, said not even going into hospital is safe from people remarking on his similarities with Culkin from the 1990 film, Derbyshire Live reports.

Andrea, a kitchen assistant said: "We'll be in the shops and someone will come up and say 'Do you know who your little boy looks like?'" the 42-year-old said.

"I just think 'Oh here we go again'. It's a daily occurrence. We've had it thousands of times.

"One time Evan was in hospital with a broken arm and even the staff were coming up and saying it to him.

"Just about everyone we've come into contact with has said it.

"It's like 'we know, we know!'"

The similarities don't end there for Evan who hopes to follow in the now 40-year-old's footsteps as an actor.

He's already started following the same career path after appearing in comedy film Swimming With Men in 2018, and a recent advert for Sony's Tiny Pop.

Andrea says the comments inevitably become more frequent over the festive period.

"We get it a bit more near Christmas time because everyone's watching the films," she said.

"But he's always looked a bit like him. Evan does like the films but it's not like he watches the films and models himself on him.

"Thankfully he hasn't done anything that happens in the film either.

"I think you'd have to be blind not to see it. He could be his double from back in the day."
