Your eyes are not deceiving you: Former child star Macaulay Culkin is now 40 years old.

The Home Alone star just celebrated his 40th birthday on Wednesday (August 26) and he's ready to start his midlife crisis. The actor shared a series of tweets to make people gasp at the thought of little "Kevin McCallister" all grown up.

"Since I'm 40 I think it's about time to start my midlife crisis," Culkin joked. "I'm thinking of picking up surfing. Do you all have any suggestions?"

He also asked his followers if anyone had Photoshop skills to put his head on the body of a surfer to "get an idea of how cool" he would look.

"Hey guys, wanna feel old?" he tweeted. "I'm 40. You're welcome."

"It's my gift to the world: I make people feel old," he added. "I'm no longer a kid, that's my job."
