'Home Alone 2' Star Recalls Leaving Donald Trump With A Massive Bar Bill

Daniel Stern, the 'sticky bandit' from the films 'Home Alone' and 'Home Alone 2: Lost in New York', remembers a run-in with Donald Trump, who appeared in a cameo in the film. Stern, who is not a Trump fan, remembers running up a $5,000 bar bill with his co-bandit, Joe Pesci, after Trump offered to pay for drinks.

He says he can respect protesters who are calling to have the President's cameo scene removed from the film.

If you recently watched 'Home Alone 2: Lost In New York', you might have been reminded that a younger Donald Trump was in the film. At the time of the movie's production, Trump owned the Plaza Hotel, the famous hotel where much of the action was set.

In the film, Kevin McCallister, played by child actor Macaulay Culkin, got separated from his large family again. This time, he ended up in New York City while his parents, siblings, aunt, uncle and cousins all went to Florida. Using his father's credit card and a little trickery, he checked into the luxurious hotel.

When Kevin first walks in, he asks a man where the front desk is. The man turns around, and it's Trump. He points Kevin in the right direction.

Stern says he was delighted by a picture of a sign held up at the recent Women's March in Los Angeles, which read, "Edit Trump Out Of 'Home Alone 2'."

"Edit Trump out of Home Alone 2,'” said Stern. “That was their cause, which I’d have to say, I support."

Stern says, considering politics today, he's glad that he and his co-star, Pesci, took advantage of Trump's offer to pay for drinks back when they shot the film. Stern didn't meet Trump formally, but he was in the bar at one point at the hotel with Pesci when Trump walked in. The real estate mogul offered to pay for drinks.

“Me and Joe [Pesci] were in the bar drinking, and Mr. Trump and his wife, or girlfriend at the time, came over and said, ‘Drinks are on me!’ and then he left,” Stern recently shared in an interview.

“I think we must have run up $5,000,” said Stern. “I mean we got the best of everything. We just ran up his tab after he made the big show of drinks for everybody.”

Stern said even back then, he didn't care for Trump.  “He was a big shot, and I took my pound of flesh, or alcohol.”

When it comes to politics, it's no surprise that Stern leans liberal. His son is Senator Henry Stern (D-Calif.), who has been a regular critic of President Trump.

Stern recalls how his son, the senator, had a very, very brief career in showbusiness. Aside from his role in the 'Home Alone' franchise, he also played the voice of older Kevin Arnold in the 1990's sit-com, 'The Wonder Years'.

After six seasons, when 'The Wonder Years' filmed the finale in 1993, and older Kevin wraps up by sharing what happened to all the characters, a child's voice is heard saying, "Hey dad, wanna play catch?"

Stern replies with the last line, "I'll be right there."

That child's voice was Senator Stern.

"That was his one showbiz claim to fame," the proud father says. "I did ruin him by getting him involved in showbusiness for a minute, but he was smart enough to get out after one line."
