21 – Buzz’s girlfriend in Home Alone was actually a boy.
Home Alone is the runaway holiday hit about a child (Macaulay Culkin) being left home by himself during the holidays and highest-grossing family comedy of all time. In the movie, Kevin McAllister (played by Culkin) has a bully of an older brother whose girlfriend is apparently “woof!”
Feeling that insulting a young girl for the sake of the joke would be insensitive, the producers instead went in a different direction. Instead, the art director’s son volunteered to dress up as a girl for the portrait that would serve as Buzz’s girlfriend.
