The tears shed by Emma Thompson in Love Actually, at the moment where she realises her husband is cheating on her, were real, the actress has revealed.
Love Actually fans were left stunned after learning a shock revelation about the film's stars Keira Knightley and Thomas Brodie-Sangster. Knightley played Julie in the hit 2003 rom-com, who weds Peter (Chiwetel Ejiofor) only to find his best friend (Andrew Lincoln) is madly in love with her. Brodie-Sangster played a school child who learns the drums in order to impress a fellow pupil he has fallen for.
The Walking Dead star explains how he got away with playing a 'weird stalker' in the classic rom-com Love Actually.
In footage from the movie’s DVD release, handily unearthed on Buzzfeed, Richard Curtis reveals that there was a same-sex relationship between Anne Reid’s brusque headmistress and her lover, Frances de la Tour. Curtis, who says he was 'sorry to lose’ the plot strand, adds: “The idea was meant to be that you just casually met this very sort of stern headmistress. As is, all the relationships in the finished movie, with its star-laden cast featuring Bill Nighy, Gregor Fisher, Colin Firth, Liam Neeson, Emma Thompson, Rowan Atkinson, Martine McCutcheon, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Andrew Lincoln and Keira Knightley, were heterosexual.
