'Love Actually' Stars Keira Knightly And Thomas Brodie-Sangster Only Have A Five Year Age Gap
But before you settle down for your yearly fix of Hugh Grant's dad dancing and sobbing over poor, heartbroken Emma Thompson, we feel obliged to tell you a new fact we've learnt about the movie. And be warned, it will shake you to the core.
Believe it or not, Keira Knightly and Thomas Brodie-Sangster only have a five year age gap between them. Yep, really.
In case you need a refresher of their characters, Keira played stunning bride Juliet while Thomas played little schoolboy Sam, who was experiencing his very first crush.
It's safe to say their characters were in very different places in their lives - and they look at least a decade apart in the Richard Curtis classic.
But despite looking much younger, when Thomas played little Sam, he was actually 13-years-old.
Meanwhile, Keira was 18 when she starred in the 2003 movie.
Yep, we can scarcely believe it, either.
The shocking revelation went viral after Twitter user Madeleine Lloyd-James posted a picture of Thomas and Keira, now aged 29 and 34, and shared the fact with all her followers.
"Yearly reminder that there is only a five year age gap between Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Keira Knightly in Love Actually," she wrote, in a post which has since been 'retweeted' 19,200 times and 'liked' a whopping 108,000 times.
