“Love Actually” has gradually become a Christmas classic, but filmmaker Richard Curtis had not seen it since it premiered in 2003. Last weekend, he and his partner, Emma Freud, and their two youngest children decided to take in a midnight screening. There were only 4 other people in the theatre, and of course no one knew who they were. Emma, who is am amazingly talented and brilliant woman in her own right, worked on the film with Curtis, and she live tweeted the whole experience. Go here to get some inside gossip on the making of the movie, and to find out what happened to some of the main charactesr. For example:
The people at Heathrow in the film’s opening were real people.
Alan Rickman and Emma Thompson stay together, but things are never the same.
Freud says Thompson took 7 takes to do the famous crying scene, and she nailed every one.
January Jones wrote most of her own lines, and was hilarious.
Two of Freud and Curtis’s children were in the nativity scene. Their daughter was the Second Lobster,
