Why Marvel needs a Doctor Strange sequel more than ever. X-Men's Ben Hardy has to ask Fox before doing anything. Everything you need to remember before Infinity War. The amazing truth about Buzz ' s girlfriend in Home Alone .

Home Alone has truly stood the test of time, with Kevin McCallister becoming every suburban child’s hero through rather sadistically beating off some burglars. Despite Buzz ’ s unpleasant demeanour and terrible hair-cut, he does manage to bag himself a girlfriend .

Remember Buzz, the obnoxious older brother from Home Alone who bullies little Kevin remorselessly?

Here he is:

Remember how at one point we see a picture of his girlfriend, and we're meant to laugh because she's kind of homely? "Buzz, your girlfriend… WOOF!"

We always thought that was a bit of a cruel gag, frankly. Who cares what she looks like? Buzz likes her, and that's all that matters. Girls (and women) have to deal with being judged by their appearance all their lives, so there's no reason for Hollywood to start the fat-shaming so early.

But we were wrong about Buzz's girlfriend.

Mitch Marsh back in Australia's Test mix

  Mitch Marsh back in Australia's Test mix Allrounder Mitch Marsh is thrilled to be back in Australia's squad for next week's Ashes Test in Perth.Having fully recovered from a right shoulder reconstruction that cut short his tour of India earlier this year, Marsh has been added to the 13-man Australian squad, replacing SA swing bowler Chadd Sayers.

Buzz was Kevin' s very obnoxious bully brother in Home Alone , who was constantly on the attack. Back in the day we would have said she' s homely , but that just doesn't fly in this current social climate. Kevin probably sums it up best when he says, ' Buzz , your girlfriend WOOF!'

HOME ALONE is one of the most popular Christmas films of all time - and now the truth about Buzz McCallister’ s girlfriend has been revealed. Doctor Strange 2: Benedict Cumberbatch gives update on Avengers Infinity War sequel. In Darkness TRAILER: Game of Thrones’ Natalie Dormer and Emily

Not because fat shaming isn't bad, but because Buzz's girlfriend isn't, in fact, a girl.

According to Devin Ratray the actor who played Buzz, the producers of the film had the same misgivings that we did:

The Ashes: Mitch Marsh's recall by Australia sparks debate, but is it such a bad thing?

  The Ashes: Mitch Marsh's recall by Australia sparks debate, but is it such a bad thing? It's fast becoming one of Australian cricket's most worn out debates, but here we are again — one of the Marsh brothers is in an Australian Test squad, and everyone's head is falling off. The Aussie selectors, perhaps buoyed by the dramatic about-face the public was forced to undertake after Shaun belted a glorious century in Adelaide, have only gone and brought Mitch into the 13-man squad for the third Test in Perth.

Remember Buzz , the obnoxious older brother from Home Alone who bullies little Kevin remorselessly? Here he is: Remember how at one point we see a picture of his girlfriend , and we’re meant to laugh because she’ s kind of homely ?

The season is upon us and it is finally acceptable for us to sit and watch Home Alone on repeat. Because, how else would you want to spend the whole of December, right? At one point in the film, we catch a glimpse of Buzz ' s girlfriend and we're all suppose to laugh at her appearance, which in

"[They] decided it would be unkind to put a girl in that role of just being funny-looking. The art director had a son who was more than willing to volunteer for the part. I think if he had known it would become the highest-grossing family comedy of all time, he might have had second thoughts about it."

So there you have it: Buzz's girlfriend was actually a young chap who was happy to make fun of himself for looking like a less-than-desirable girl, because he was in fact not a girl at all.

So we can all laugh with a clean conscience. Even though it's kind of problematic that a boy in drag is meant to be funny, too, so maybe we should all just pass over the whole thing in silence and get to the bit where Daniel Stern stops a flying paint-can with his face.
