Celebrity relationships are a big part of the entertainment world, they give a glimpse into the romantic workings of the lives of the personalities involved. When a popular person gets into a new relationship, speculations always spring up about who they are most likely dating but this often happens if the other party is not as popular. However, when both parties are celebrities, there is a much louder buzz. Brenda Song and Macaulay Culkin, were a very unlikely pair until they started dating.
It’s no longer news to many that Macaulay, the child actor who came to the spotlight on ‘Home Alone’ had a series of life-changing experiences as he grew older – experiences which automatically sidelined him from mainstream Hollywood. But, popular opinions about the actor in recent times suggest he is living the best episodes of his life once again. This was since he met his heartthrob Brenda Song.
The Circumstances That Brought Brenda Song And Macaulay Culkin Together
In 2017, it was announced that Seth Green was working on a new film, titled Changeland. It was also revealed that Macaulay Culkin would star in the film; this was his first appearance in a film in 10 years. One of the other stars scheduled to appear in the film was Brenda Song. It was on the set of this film that the two met. According to Song, when they started to talk to each other, the two stars bonded over their shared experience of being child actors.
It was an easy topic for them to bond with each other as both had sufficient experience in acting while they were still children. But a more significant thing they shared in common was that they had both started their careers in entertainment when they were 5, Song started off as a model while Culkin was part of a stage play at the New York Philharmonic. Having this in common made it easy for both actors to bond. In a short while, they started spending more time together.
Like other celebrities, the relationship between the two stars was easily snuffed out by the press. The first news of their relationship came to the limelight in 2017 but they made no comment on the speculations. By December of that year, the flames of the relationship rumour were fanned when the pair were spotted together in Paris ‘the city of love’. But there was still no comment from either of them on the true nature of their relationship.
The confirmation of their relationship came a year after when Culkin mentioned on Joe Rogan’s podcast that he was in a relationship with Song. A month after his announcement, Song confirmed that she was in a happy place in her love life.
