This is crazy…
Not many films can boast the kind of cult status that Love Actually has achieved in the 15-years since it’s release.
The 2003-Rom-com has been virtually commissioned into it’s own genre.
Love it or hate it, you have to admit it’s certainly left a permanent stamp on pop culture…
Now you’d think after 15-years of countless memes and fan theories, that everything single secret the film could possibly be hiding would’ve been revealed…
You’d think! However, that is not the case.
Recently a new bombshell has come to light, and it’s caused the internet to lose it’s collective mind.
Remember Keira Knightly? Who plays Juliet in the film, a bride who finds herself trapped in the middle of a love triangle when her husband’s best man confesses his feelings for her.
And remember Sam? The hopelessly romantic stepson of Liam Neeson’s Character?
One, playing a fully grown adult bride.
One playing a lovesick 10-year old…
You’d think the real life age difference between the two would be at the least an entire decade, right?
Unbelievably, it’s just Five years.
Knightley was 18 when the film was released, while Brodie-Sangster was 13…
Needless to say people were shocked upon learning this information:
YEAH, 13!!!! I always thought he was like 6 in love actually I can’t get over it
