HOME ALONE is one of the most popular Christmas films of all time - and now the truth about Buzz McCallister’ s girlfriend has been revealed. Home Alone : Buzz ' s girlfriend wasn't as she seemed. The film, starring Macaulay Culkin as young Kevin , is a popular festive favourite with millions, but still

Buzz actor Devin Ratray reveals a secret about Buzz ' s girlfriend in Home Alone that will make The amazing truth about Buzz ' s girlfriend in Home Alone . This secret may make you reassess a key scene… " Buzz , your girlfriend … WOOF!" We always thought that was a bit of a cruel gag, frankly. 2008 is a strange and distant land. Tovey weighs in on Whitehall casting as gay character.

Remember Buzz, the obnoxious older brother from Home Alone who bullies little Kevin remorselessly?

Here he is:

Remember how at one point we see a picture of his girlfriend, and we're meant to laugh because she's kind of homely? "Buzz, your girlfriend… WOOF!"

We always thought that was a bit of a cruel gag, frankly. Who cares what she looks like? Buzz likes her, and that's all that matters. Girls (and women) have to deal with being judged by their appearance all their lives, so there's no reason for Hollywood to start the fat-shaming so early.

But we were wrong about Buzz's girlfriend.

Mitch Marsh back in Australia's Test mix

  Mitch Marsh back in Australia's Test mix Allrounder Mitch Marsh is thrilled to be back in Australia's squad for next week's Ashes Test in Perth.Having fully recovered from a right shoulder reconstruction that cut short his tour of India earlier this year, Marsh has been added to the 13-man Australian squad, replacing SA swing bowler Chadd Sayers.

The actor who played Buzz in comedy classic Home Alone finally confesses about his character's real girlfriend in Home Alone . Everyone is so sensitive nowadays, if Home Alone were getting a remake, it's virtually guaranteed that the joke about Buzz ' s girlfriend would be completely cut from

Not because fat shaming isn't bad, but because Buzz's girlfriend isn't, in fact, a girl.

According to Devin Ratray the actor who played Buzz, the producers of the film had the same misgivings that we did:

The Ashes: Mitch Marsh's recall by Australia sparks debate, but is it such a bad thing?

  The Ashes: Mitch Marsh's recall by Australia sparks debate, but is it such a bad thing? It's fast becoming one of Australian cricket's most worn out debates, but here we are again — one of the Marsh brothers is in an Australian Test squad, and everyone's head is falling off. The Aussie selectors, perhaps buoyed by the dramatic about-face the public was forced to undertake after Shaun belted a glorious century in Adelaide, have only gone and brought Mitch into the 13-man squad for the third Test in Perth.

Buzz ' s Girlfriend Was a Boy. Home Alone 's producers thought it'd be cruel to cast an actual young girl as Buzz ' s girlfriend from the infamous "WOOF" photo, so they cast a young boy to make unattractive instead!

Buzz ' s girlfriend is a girl mentioned in Home Alone . In the first film, she was shown in a picture when Kevin was looking through Buzz ' s stuff. She wears headgear and had a shocked expression. Kevin was disgusted upon seeing her picture.

"[They] decided it would be unkind to put a girl in that role of just being funny-looking. The art director had a son who was more than willing to volunteer for the part. I think if he had known it would become the highest-grossing family comedy of all time, he might have had second thoughts about it."

So there you have it: Buzz's girlfriend was actually a young chap who was happy to make fun of himself for looking like a less-than-desirable girl, because he was in fact not a girl at all.


So we can all laugh with a clean conscience. Even though it's kind of problematic that a boy in drag is meant to be funny, too, so maybe we should all just pass over the whole thing in silence and get to the bit where Daniel Stern stops a flying paint-can with his face.
