These "Love Actually" Characters Were Only Five Years Apart IRL And Now I'm Questioning Everything
How is this humanly possible?!
As someone who has watched Love Actually approximately 7 million times in my life, there are some things that are just facts in my mind: 1) Keira Knightley is supposed to play a full-grown adult.
2) This adorable child (played by Thomas Brodie-Sangster) is supposed to be AN ACTUAL CHILD — probably like 7 or 8 years old.
So when I saw a particularly shocking Tumblr post making the rounds this week, I was — as the kids say — shooketh.
UMMMMMM, PARDON ME???????
Let me quickly repeat that for anyone in the back: THEY WERE ONLY FIVE YEARS APART. The bride whose marriage was interrupted by a ridiculous guy holding signs is only five years older than the child who ran through an airport because he was in love with an American girl.

Excuse me while I go attempt to process this for several hours. Bye!
