Joe Pesci suffered burns filming the 'Home Alone' sequel

LOS ANGELES:  Actor Joe Pesci suffered "serious burns" on his head while filming a scene where his hat was set on fire in 'Home Alone 2: Lost in New York'.

According to, the 79-year-old actor, who returned to the part of criminal Harry in the 1992 sequel, sustained different injuries as a result of the pranks pulled on his persona, including having his hat set on fire by Macaulay Culkin's Kevin McCallister.

Pesci stated: "During the scene where Harry's hat is put on fire, I did incur major burns to the top of my head in addition to the typical bumps, bruises, and general pains that you would associate with that specific style of physical humour." I had the good fortune to have trained stuntmen perform the really difficult stunts. Pesci purposefully avoided Macaulay, now 42, while they were filming the "Home Alone" movies in order to "preserve the integrity" of their on-screen relationship.

I recall Macaulay as being a really sweet kid and, even at his age, quite professional, the man told People magazine. In order to maintain the chemistry between his character, Kevin, and my character, Harry, I purposely kept our encounters to a minimum.

I didn't want our relationship to appear pleasant in any way on the television. The integrity of the adversarial connection was something I wanted to preserve. Because he doesn't believe any new picture could capture the "innocence" of the originals, the "Goodfellas" actor believes it is doubtful that he will resume the character of "Harry" in the future.

While you should never rule anything out, he added, it would be challenging to duplicate the success and general innocence of the originals. Since 30 years ago, attitudes and priorities have changed significantly.
