Most know Brenda Song and Macaulay Culkin for being prominent actors during the 2000s and 90s. Song is most known for her role as London Tipton on Suite Life of Zack and Cody while Culkin is known for his star role in the iconic Christmas movie, Home Alone. Throughout the years since their rise to fame, the actors have been in and out of Hollywood’s spotlight. Though, it was surprisingly announced that on April 5th, the pair welcomed their first daughter, Dakota Song Culkin. So, what else have the pair done since their most iconic roles?
In terms of their dating lives, they both have been involved in serious relationships before each other. Brenda had an on-and-off relationship with Trace Cyrus until 2017. At one point they were even engaged. Macaulay has been seen dating different people, but his most known relationship was with Mila Kunis as they lasted almost a decade together. Song and Culkin’s dating rumors began in 2017, when the two were starring in the same movie, Changeland. “They were spotted holding hands and being cute with each other” according to US Weekly. Most of their relationship has been kept out of the public eye, regardless they seem to have a happy and healthy relationship. Brenda once said, “You can’t be around him and not be happy”.
Brenda and Macaulay have taken their careers in slightly different directions. Song has mainly continued her acting pursuits throughout the years. During the time of Suite Life, she contributed to Wendy Wu Homecoming Warrior, Get a Clue, Stuck in the Suburbs, and more! More recently, Song came back to Disney to be the voice of an animated character in the show, Amphibia. She has expanded her career from children’s shows as she has been a part of Scandal, Station 19, Secret Obsession, and Dollface. Besides acting, Song has shown her support for advocacy as well. Most notably, she has worked with Stand Up To Cancer, as her mom has had cancer four times.
After being nominated for a Golden Globe and being a part of the highest-grossing movie of the 1990s, Culkin already reached what most actors spend their lives dreaming about. Around the age of 14, he took a break from acting to handle personal issues. However, after his break, Culkin did not have the smoothest transition back to Hollywood. None of his movies or TV shows became popular. Fortunately, bad reviews have not stopped Culkin from acting as he has continued regardless of the popularity associated with his works. Additionally, Culkin has pursued other career interests as he published his own book called Junior. Junior was an autobiography that included “a collection of poems, letters, comics, and more”. Lastly, Culkin has indulged in music, as he was in a project called Pizza Underground. They “parodied songs by the Velvet Underground, with…pizza-themed song names and lyrics”.
Brenda and Macaulay have come a long way from their childhood careers. Fans and supporters are excited to see what else the pair may do in the future, but it’s safe to assume for now that the two will be focused on navigating parenthood together!
