1. Macauley Culkin
Macauley Culkin became one of the most successful child stars around after playing Kevin McCallister, the burglar-busting kid with an impressive scream. In fact, he's been named No. 2 on VH1's "100 Greatest Kid Stars" list. However, Culkin's other roles in the '90s (Getting Even with Dad, Richie Rich) weren't exactly blockbusters. So, the star took a break from showbiz for a few years, before coming back with a couple stage, TV, and movie roles. Though his career has never reached Home Alone proportions again, his personal life was of great interest for nearly a decade, when he was in a relationship with Mila Kunis. They split in 2011. These days, Culkin seems to avoid the spotlight and has turned his New York apartment into a painting workshop.
