Bill Nighy and His Famous Saying
His notable screen moments are endless. He has always been associated with comic and outrageous characters, and in “Love Actually” he spices the plot with one of the most memorable phrases. “Kids, don’t do dr*gs. Become a pop star and they’ll give you them for free”.
Billy Night didn’t intend to read for the movie. It all happened by the way. He was sure he was doing a favor for a friend and ended up getting the part.
More Interesting Than You Thought
Unlike the rest of the couples in the movie, John and Judy (Joanna Louise Page and Martin Freeman) are introduced to the viewers at the same time they are introduced to one another. All other characters seem to know each other from way before. Surprisingly, John and Judy have one of the most intriguing stories in the movie.
John is shown as a considerate partner (he warms his hands before touching Judy'd bare body) and manages to clear the atmosphere and overcome the awkwardness of being nude in front of a complete stranger.
John and Judy
The contrast between John and Judy as movie body doubles and John and Judy off-set is quite remarkable. From two shy and modest people, they turn into experienced and skilled adult-only movie doubles and meet while filming an erotic scene together.
When "Love Actually" was shown on TV, John and Judy'd erotic love scene was cut off as it was too much for the TV broadcasters to handle. That bit of spice added to the script did go a little too far. Our question is, did John and Judy have to go to the extreme so they could have a chit-chat and eventually go on a date? Funnily enough, their story is probably the purest relationship of them all.
The Office Party
When we sit to watch a Christmas movie, we know sooner or later the Christmas party scene will appear. Remember the wicked hot assistant (Heike Makatsch) Harry (the late Alan Rickman) has a thing with? Well, we ask ourselves, why was she dressed in a devil's costume? Was she mistaking Christmas for Halloween?
And who nowadays goes to the most expensive store in London and buys a piece of jewelry expecting the misses back home not finding out? These things don't happen in reality, just like Priministers don't fall for their assistants, and no one lives happily ever after.
Sarah Is Always on the Phone
From the very first scene, Sarah (Laura Linney) is constantly on the phone. It is unknown who's on the other end. Only as the story proceeds it is revealed that Sarah and Karl (Rodrigo Santoro) were handed the disappointing side of the movie.
Karl and Sarah are an unfulfilled love affair. Their last scene together is heartbreaking and emotional and makes you wonder, what was the purpose of this chapter in the movie.
