Home Alone child star Macaulay Culkin joined his fiancée Brenda Song in celebrating her birthday with a playful stint at the luxury Nobu resort in Los Cabos. The famous actor played pretend as a staff during the getaway, and fans could not help but admire his playful, goofy antics.

Macaulay Culkin shared several photos of their moments on his Instagram, with different shots featuring him in several roles, as indicated in his caption. “On our first day, we went to the gift shop, and I found this shirt,” he wrote. “Since now I looked like the staff I decided to spend my four days there masquerading as a: Poolside waiter, Housekeeper, Cabana boy, Room service attendant, Bellhop.”

After rising to fame in the ‘90s thanks to the holiday classic Home Alone, Culkin retired after being made to work extra hard by his father, Kit Culkin, who made him do up to eight movies in five years. “I wanted to take a break for a while, and eventually I was like, ‘I’m done guys,” Culkin recalled on an episode of Marc Macron’s podcast. “I hope you all made your money because there is no more coming from me.”

Following his recent post, Culkin’s followers urged him to consider returning to film, as they missed his acting. “When are we gonna see this guy in another movie? He is such a great actor. He was great then and he is still good now,” someone gushed. Another jokingly suggested he and Brenda start a series titled, “Macaulay in The White Lotus.”

“You guys living the ‘suite life,’” a follower quipped, referring to Brenda’s feature as London in Disney Channel’s The Suite Life of Zack & Cody.
