Seth Rogen and other celebrities were shocked to learn of the gangster film that was shown in the movie “Home Alone” was a fake.

“My entire childhood, I thought that the old-timey film that Kevin [McCallister] watches in “Home Alone [Angels with Filthy Souls”] was actually an old movie,” Rogen tweeted on christmas day.

“Captain America” star Chris Evans said: “It is not????” while comedian Nick Kroll was also surprised to learn of the fact.

“It isn’t? [Deadly serious],” Kroll tweeted.

Rogen replied that he was sorry to the fellow celebrities that their youth was also destroyed.

“Sorry dude,” Rogen said Evans. “Merry Christmas ya filthy animal.”

“Yes man,” Rogen told Kroll. “You deserved to find out in a better way than this.”

Rogen was referring to the black and white gangster movie McCallister, played by a young Macaulay Culkin, watches, while he accidentally home alone. He jokes that he’s the look of “waste” as he covered his eyes during a shooting in the “movie”.


In the sequel, “Home Alone 2: Lost in New York,” McCallister watches the gangster film “sequel,” Angels with Even Filthier Souls.” The films were inspired by the James Cagney classic “Angels with Dirty Faces,” Vanity Fair reported.
