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.
When My Sister Saw The Movie Honey, I Shrunk The Kids, She Tried To Build A Shrink Ray But Never Did
After Watching Toy Story, My Friend Believed That His Toys Became Alive After He Left His Room. Now He's 25 And Still Believe That.
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 think that a movie is made in realtime. I tought that a 2 hour movie is made in 2 hours.
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.
I thought that when a movie showed a kid and then later showed the same person as an adult that they were actually the same person and they had to wait for the kid to grow up to film the rest of the movie. I figured they must shoot the same scene with at least two different kids just in case one of them died before they became an adult.
When I was about 4 my dad let me watch the movie 'Garbage Pail Kids' which is about, like, demonic cabbage patch dolls. I guess he thought it was a kid movie? Anyway, one of them eats toes and for about 20 years I couldn't sleep with my feet out from under the blankets. Thanks, Dad.
When I was little I listened to The Wizard of Oz record album. One day I told my mom I liked the part where they find the kitten. She was a bit perplexed, so we listened to it together. During the Tin Man's song they say, wherefore arte thou, Romeo. What I heard was, Look what I found, meow meow.
I used to think dream sequences in movies were actually filming someone's dreams.. I thought that was a really cheap way to make movies!
