'There Was Certainly A Resentment': John Candy Was Paid Just $414 For His Iconic 'Home Alone' Role

John Candy had a legendary career, and was one of the best comedic performers of the '80s and '90s. After rising to prominence as a supporting character actor, he captured the hearts of many, and he became a lovable leading man in beloved films like "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles" and "Uncle Buck." By the time "Home Alone" rolled around, Candy was already a major star and his appearance was a welcome surprise. However, it turns out he was only paid $414 for his role in the film, despite being one of the most famous names in the credits. In "Home Alone," Catherine O’Hara’s Kate McAllister does everything she can to try and get back home to her son Kevin on Christmas after accidentally leaving him behind. Unfortunately, the busy holidays make it impossible for her to book a trip back to Chicago, so she has to take desperate measures.
