Love Actually is 10 years old and OMG we got a bunch of the cast to reminisce about it!!! 

Laura Linney: …And sweet, wonderful Rodrigo! We were both brokenhearted at the time and had gotten out of rough relationships, so it was just very sweet.
Rodrigo Santoro: I broke up a couple of months before we met, and Laura and me were both in the same zone. Laura is a special human being—so sweet, humble, and down to earth.

Watching [Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley] in front of and behind the camera was an absolute miracle—they were Sutter and Aimee.  
An example: there are quite a few scenes in the movie in which they have to kiss. The first one we shot was on a playground in the middle of the night. To stay awake Miles was eating Twizzlers, and Shailene, as usual, was drinking an earthy tea. They got into character, did the scene, and the kiss was tender, sweet, beautiful. And as soon as James yelled “cut,” they both burst into hysterics. Shailene said to Miles, “You taste like processed food!” He responded, “You taste like dirt!” Differences in snack preferences aside, their chemistry is a tribute to them as serious actors and to their respect for each other.

The screenwriters of ‘The Spectacular Now’ share how their movie got made, plus some never-before-seen photos and oh man, when do we get to see this movie?

We bought $75,000 worth of sex toys to stock the sex-toy warehouse. I could have filmed the crew coming in that day because they’d stop and see these things—anatomically correct vajayjays and this butt (everyone would touch the butt because it felt real)—and it was hysterical. We were going to return all the sex toys to get three-quarters of our money back, but they started disappearing. We were like, “Who is taking the sex toys?”

Michael Bay is returning to his ‘Bad Boys’ roots with ‘Pain and Gain’. Also buying sex toys?
