When I was three or four years old I was terrified of the film 'The Never Ending Story' because I literally thought it would never end. I had a strict parent who expected me to sit still and watch the entirely of films - no 'getting distracted' and going off to do another activity. I thought I'd get old and grey forced to watch this film that would never end, and that the actors were constantly filming new material. I never got around to watching it until I was in my mid-twenties.

My family has an obsession with horror movies, so growing up I wasn't really that scared of them. However, I was completely tramatised by 'Ant Bully'; for months afterwards I was terrified of sleeping sideways in case ants poured a potion down my ear and took me away from my family.

This is the kid who would always blink at statues to prove weeping angels didn't exist xD

When I was really young I was obsessed with weddings, and wanted to be a wedding planner. I was always disappointed when they didn't show entire weddings in movies/tv; there would be the bride walking down the isle, and maybe the shot after the wedding. I decided that it was because, if they filmed the whole wedding, the actors would be legally married.

I used to think only super attractive people got to be actors. So I always got really confused when I was watching a movie and not everyone looked like supermodels.

Whenever the subject of the historical Titanic comes up, someone makes a joke about the death of Leonardo DiCaprio. Because of this, I used to believe that DiCaprio was the name of an actual famous person who died during the sinking of the real Titanic.

I thought this for several years, until one day I saw the poster for the movie, with DiCaprio's name on it... at which point I somehow concluded that they got a descendant of the historical DiCaprio to play him in the movie. I don't remember when I finally figured out that there was no historical DiCaprio, just the actor.

I used to think, to protect the environment and prevent global warming, I couldn't have friends. I saw a webtoon, one character said he wanted to see Cars (the movie), the other said cars were "toxic little beasts, causing our planet to melt". Then I saw a McDonalds advert, telling me the movie Cars was about friends. I put 2 & 2 together.

We watched the film Arsenic and Old Lace when I was a kid, and I thought the title was "Our Snickin' Old Lace." I was annoyed that no one was able to tell me what "Snickin'" meant, so I thought maybe it was something like snickering. So I imagined the lace laughing at people.

The first time I saw a 3D/IMAX movie my parents joked that they should release smells into the movie theatre to make it even more realistic. I thought they were serious and I was very disappointed that it didn't smell like anything when I got inside. I got even more disappointed when there really weren't any smells piped in during the movie!

I used to believe that the world used to be black and white and then changed to color, instead of black and white movies changing into color.

I used to believe that the contents of home-recorded VHS tapes were partially randomized each time they were played. I can probably blame this on a combination of older tapes being recorded over, and sections becoming defunct as they wore out with time.

I used to believe that if I saw a horror movie, the characters in that film would be with me at night and were going to make me the same that they did to their victims in the film, so always I waited that my parents went to sleep and if I couldn't fall asleep at that moment, I would listen to music but there were occasions when I opened my eyes and I saw strange figures, so I turned on the light and it was just bad-off clothes or things.

Nowadays I'm 18 and if I see an horror movie, it's going to be the same, I'm going to think the same, so I prefer not to watch these movies.

When I was a kid, I used to believe that kissing scenes in movies weren't real. I refused to believe that the actors would just kiss each other like that.

When I was a little girl I loved to watch horror movies about scary witches, coffins and cemetery. My favorite children's film was "Hocus Pocus." In the evening, when I started to watch it, I always felt that I am not alone in the room therefore switch the channel. And then my mother came into the room, and we watched it together. When I went to bed it seemed to me that witches from the movie would come into my room and eat me. Now I have grown up, but still afraid of watching horror movies.

When I was young and they showed nudity on TV and in movies, I didn't think that the actors would want their private parts to be filmed on camera, so I thought that during those scenes they would wear clothes over themselves that looked exactly like private parts.

I thought when a movie was unrated it meant it was so bad it exceeded all the ratings!

When I was little and I would watch a movie that a character grew up in I thought it actually took a lifetime to film the movie. I didn't know they actually used different actors/ actresses.
