When I was little after watching the movie "The Truman Show" I was freaked out and kept looking for cameras all over the place. although I know that's not true it keeps coming to my head.

It's true!!!

Like everyone else who has watched 'The Truman Show' I used to believe that I was on camera the whole time and sometimes when I was in the bath I would find the holes in the walls where I thought the cameras were and talk to them about how bad it was and then I would put my fingers over the holes so they couldn't see me!

When I was younger I loved watching the movie "The Truman Show". After the first time I watched I always thought that my life was really a T.V. show and everybody was watching me. I would even look around the house for cameras sometimes. I still wonder about that now and I'm 13! lol.

I spent many hours convincing myself that the world was play acted for my benefit; that people would be milling around in whatever room I was about to walk into, and then spring into appropriate action when I would enter.
As an adult, when the movie "The Truman Show" was released with almost this exact plot (in my mind there was no show, it was just reality, and all the people weren't really actors, but more like automatons), I started reading reviews talking about 'this common childhood fantasy we all had of being the only real person in the world'.
So I went from great surprise that someone had written a movie about my childhood obsession, to shock that loads of people thought the exact same thing.

I used to think that my life was one big drama and all the people around me were actors and I was the only one not in it. I even thought my mum and dad had scripts that told them what to say, sort of like the Truman Show! Warped huh?

Until I was about 9 I used to think that I was a lab experiment. I used to think that everyone around me including Mom & Dad were actors (just like the movie the Truman Show w/ Jim Carrey)

When I was but a wee lad, I used to believe (after seeing "The Truman Show")that I was in fact followed by cameras that watched my every move.

The movie, The Truman Show, petrified me and I thought a bunch of people could be watching me on their TVs...I still wonder about it....

I used to believe that everything's for me! yeah, maybe I was a little bit egoist:D but I really believed that there's a script written by God and I'm the leading character in it and everyone knew about it except me... like a reality show...:D making fun of me:D

I used to think that i was being tested, and that the world was small, everyone knew everything about me, could see everything i did, so i would cover myself up when i went to the bathroom, and would curl up in the bath so nobody would see anything... i also thought that if i ever told i lie they would all know it and laugh behind my back.

I used to think that my life was documented, like the movie "The Truman Show". I actually thought that I was being watched all the time by hidden cameras and that I had my own tv show. Sometimes I watch what I say and do cause I forget that my life isn't a show!

I had this strange belief that I was the only real person in the world and everybody else were actors, it was kinda like some sicko real version of the Truman show

When I and my brother were young, we believed that the world was like a tv show and we were the main characters. Just like tv, everything was about us. As far as we knew, those people who were with us existed only as long as they were with us. If they went home, they disappeared and only existed again when they were on "our show". Eventually, though I don't know at what age, we realized that people had real lives and existed outside of our presence.

Ever since i saw the Truman Show i always wondered if i was being watched all the time. I always made sure that I did things correctly or never ever told a lie because i thought that everyone would know!!

After I watched The Trueman Show, a film starring Jim Carrey where he is in a made up world and he is the star of the worlds biggest TV show without even knowing it, I thought there were cameras everywhere watching me. A couple of times I even said hello to my mirror, thinking it was a camera.
