(Newser) Home Alone may be a holiday favorite in lots of US homes, but you won't find it on Macaulay Culkin's TV. The actor tells Ellen DeGeneres on Monday's show that he generally avoids watching the 1990 flick, which he calls "background radiation at Christmastime," reports E! Online. And that's despite getting lots of requests from people to watch it with them, "which is, like, both flattering and creepy."

In fact, things get so intense for him around then that Culkin says he avoids leaving the house. And as for the famous "face" he makes in the movie, please don't be among the throngs asking him to reproduce it, because it won't happen. "I've been there, done that already. I'm 37, OK? OK, Mom?" he jokes, per the Hollywood Reporter. (Read more Macaulay Culkin stories.)
