We fell in love with Macaulay Culkin as the small boy living all of our dreams in the 1990 film Home Alone.
Now the world is falling in love with him all over again, after the latest image of the now-36-year-old has gone viral.
Sure, he went through a rough patch. He married at 17, then divorced—and in 2004, was arrested and briefly jailed for possession of marijuana and two controlled substances.
He stormed off stage to a chorus of “boos” while touring with his comedy rock band in 2014.
He also testified in the trial of Michael Jackson, saying he slept in the pop star’s bedroom on several occasions as a child but that allegations of sexual abuse were “absolutely ridiculous”.
During these times, Culkin’s look changed a lot.
There were, unfortunately, concerns for his health.
But now he’s changed his profile picture on Twitter and it appears he is stomping on those concerns.
He looks healthy and, more importantly, happy.
The internet couldn’t be more delighted.

The 36-year-old also paid tribute to fellow actor John Heard, who played his father in Home Alone, who died on Sunday.
“You will always be my father. No matter what!” Culkin tweeted. “Home Alone will always be a beautiful memory for us all.”
