15 years after its release, there seems to be tiny sum (read: big, BIG details) still trickling by about the beloved Christmas film Love Actually.
But there is one violent fact that’s resurfaced all these years after that has fans in a tizz.
And it’s to do with two of the categorical expel members – Keira Knightley, who played Juliet, and Thomas Brodie-Sangster of Game of Thrones fame, who played Sam, the step son of Daniel (Liam Neeson).
You see, Sam is much, much older than he looks, and Juliet much younger.
In fact, and here’s where we break your Love Actually adore bubble, there’s only five years between these two actors’ ages.
In the 2003 movie, Juliet is a totally mature, grown up bride who is partial of one of the many famous scenes in film story – you know, the ‘to me, you are perfect’ sign moment.
Then there’s Sam, who is a child who looks all of 10 years old (he’s not, but still) who’s flattering over the girl in his category who’s about to fly back to America, so he learns the drums so he can perform in the school’s Christmas show and win his crush’s heart.
You’d think, negative expect, there to be utterly the age operation between these two actors, seeing as they’re personification characters in two *very* opposite stages of life – one is navigating his first vanquish and early years of high school, while the other is staid down, married, somehow vital in a bangin’ patio on a cobbled street, and sophistry a adore triangle with two other totally mature men.
However the explanation is in the DOBS: Keira was born 26 Mar 1985, which creates her 32, and Thomas was innate 16 May 1990, bringing him to 27.
It all came to the dismayed courtesy when a repelled Twitter user uttered their startle as this honestly intolerable information, which has given been retweeted over 30,000 times.

Gotta say, they really had Keira NOT looking 18 years old, and Thomas really NOT looking 13.
The fans were shook. We repeat, the fans, were shook.

More so than the ridiculous age gap, many were freaked out that Keira was only 18, with one saying: ‘I’m some-more repelled that Keira Knightley was 18 in Love Actually !! we suspicion she was in her twenties.’
We all did, honeyed tweeter, we all did.
Some fans with their finger on the beat picked up on the insane, and adjacent on inappropriate, age opening some time ago, but it wasn’t until old partner ’30k retweets’ cottoned onto it that it really took off.
If there’s anything we can learn from his, it’s to hold your children parsimonious tonight – for tomorrow they may be 18 and marrying Chiwetel Ejiofor.
