Chris Columbus was sent two scripts by Hughes while he was staying with his wife's parents in Chicago after the birth of their first child; one was for Home Alone (1990). Columbus fell in love with it, it really struck a chord with him and he felt he could make a really strong film out of it. He and Hughes hit it off instantly so Hughes gave him the job to direct.
When casting the role of Kevin McCallister in Home Alone (1990), Chris Columbus had already seen Macaulay Culkin in Uncle Buck (1989) but he wanted to audition some other kids while Hughes had his heart set on Culkin. So Columbus met Culkin in New York and was very charmed by him and thought he was fantastic. Columbus auditioned five other kids and none of them shaped up to Culkin. Columbus went with Culkin because he was not as picture perfect and he had an instant relatability to the kids in the audience. Columbus knew the cameras would love him and he was immensely funny.
Rarely gave interviews. By the 1990's, shunned publicity completely, withdrawing from public life.
Attended Arizona State University.
