I used to think that if you watched all the different previews for a new movie being advertised on tv, you would end up having seen the whole movie.

When I was little, I watched the movie "Iron Giant" and when the missile was launched, the kid said that everybody was going to die. I thought missiles actually killed everybody on Earth.

When I was little and I believed that anytime I watched a VHS, the actors were actually inside the movie, so I gave them 10 minute to get ready every time I put a VHS into the VCR

I used to think gunshots and dying in movies were real. I always assumed they had paid their families a lot of money as compensation. I also taught they filmed all the movies they ever did just before they died,like just acted their part because they knew they were going to die

After watching Mary Poppins, my sister convinced my cousin and I that if we stood outside with umbrellas on a windy day, we could fly like Mary Poppins. Of course we believed her, and it was a windy day, so we grabbed our umbrellas and headed into the backyard. Nobody ended up flying. But our grandmother got a kick out of watching us.

I used to think that when a film was being made, the actors had to act out the whole thing in one take. If someone said their lines wrong, the whole film would have to be redone.

When I was a kid we watched the movie The Elephant Man in school. Before I watched I asked the teacher what it was about and he said it's about a deformed person. I thought he meant the guy was half human half elephant because of the name!

I used to think all cinema curtains were made of really thin material because you could still see the image THROUGH them when they closed...it didn't occur to me that the image was being projected ONTO the curtain.

I used to believe that when movies were filmed, the people in the background were not paid extras, but really cool people who understood that they should just keep walking so they didn't mess up the filming.

I used to believe that in Jurassic Park, when everyone was standing by the raptor fence for the first time, that Dr. Grant asked the "Australian Guy" (Muldoon) Can I show and tell it." instead of the line "Do they show intelligence?"

When I was younger I used to believe that when the credits rolled they'd fall behind the tv. I'd always check, but they were never there.

When I was little, I used to think that actors in movies were little people and the old school VHS cassette tapes were their homes, and they would pop out when you put it in the VCR and them running around inside was the movie. I would always evenly play all of my tapes to make sure none of them felt left out.

I used to believe that in actions movies when extras would die that the director would go out and find homeless people to actually kill. Granted this was before i knew what special effects were.

When I was little, I used to think that when a person died in a movie or TV show, the actor actually had to die like that for the shot.

When I was a kid and watched Star Wars for the first time with my dad (I was about 6) I still couldn't read very well so he read the opening text out loud. At one point it mentions the "evil galactic emperor" but for some reason I misheard it as the "evil elastic emperor" and imagined he was like an evil Stretch Armstrong type guy.

I used to believe that when someone was killed in a movie, they were killed for real. I assumed they had to film the entire movie except the death scene and then hope that scene went perfectly well. Otherwise they'd have to get someone new to play the person who died and shoot the whole thing all over again. Similarly - if there was a kid who grew up in the movie, they had to wait for that kid to grow up for real.
