The best part of Home Alone The films see a young Macaulay Culkin inflict serious pain on Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern, but the films’ absurd slapstick comedy actually caused real consequences for Pesci. Looking back on the thirtieth anniversary of Home Alone 2: Lost in New York for People, Pesci recalls suffering “severe burns” while filming a particular scene in the beloved sequel.

“In addition to the expected general bumps, bruises, and soreness you might associate with this particular type of physical humor, I got serious burns on the top of my head during the scene in which Harry’s hat catches on fire,” said Pesci. . While the actor noted that “I’ve been fortunate enough to have professional stuntmen doing real, heavy stunts,” it was really him who was attacked by Culkin.

“It was a nice change of pace to do this particular type of slapstick comedy,” said the actor. “But the Home Alone Movies were a physical kind of comedy, and therefore, more demanding.” At least he wasn’t electrocuted like Stern.

Elsewhere in the feature, Pesci discussed his “intentionally limited” interactions with Culkin on set. “I remember Macaulay as a really sweet kid and, even at his age, very professional,” Pesci said. “I intentionally restricted my interactions with him to preserve the dynamic between his character, Kevin, and my character, Harry.” “I wanted to preserve the integrity of the adversarial relationship,” he added.

After that, Pesci would return to television in only his second regular television role popkiss, Pete Davidson Comedy Coming to Peacock.
