I used to believe that when they made a movie, even the characters faces were made up. When I was about six, I was really shocked to see some character I recognized from a movie being interviewed. HOW could the actor look JUST LIKE the character?!?
I was excited for my 10th birthday because that's the age Ash Ketchem became a pokemon trainer. After that fantasy I rebounded with 11 because that's when Harry Potter got the Hogwarts letter from the owl.
i used to think that movie stars were born in space and lived on stars. that's why they were so beautiful and famous and why all the people i knew weren't famous. also, they were born in the stars and everyone admired them so they wanted them to be in their movies.
good theory though!
I used to believe that when actors and actresses kissed on the lips in movies that they had plastic covering their lips because I didn't think it was possible for them to kiss someone that wasn't their spouse.
I always thought that the Hulk was based of Hulk Hogan.
I used to think stuff like Star Wars was really filmed in space, before realising it was just the background effect in the studio.
I thought “Human Centipede” was a sex act
When quizzed about what each of the characters in Wizard of Oz had wanted (e.g. scarecrow wanted a heart, I think), my younger brother insisted the lion wanted curry (instead of courage).
i used to believe that the tornado in "the wizard of oz" was a giant elephant trunk coming down from the heavens. i thought that was creepy
I saw Superman 2 when I was about 3, and I remember it being late at night when I got to bed. At the end, Superman flies round the world, and I remember spending a good while looking at the night sky to see if I could see him.
I used to think that if i jumped off a high rise building and screamed loud enough that superman would fly down and save me.
When my mom told me that they "brought out" Lady and the Tramp once again, I thought that there were men walking around the neighborhood with carts (similar to the ones at the beginning of Walt Disney's Beauty and the Beast) full of video tapes of the movie. Therefore, she had to go and buy one before they were all gone.
When I was about three, my brother would always make me watch Star Wars with him. He would pause the movie and ask me the characters' names, and I would say them. When he told me Luke Skywalker's name, my first response was, " Can he walk on the sky?" I believed that he could walk on the sky until I was about eight years old.
When i was little i used to think that actors actualy had to grow into the parts that they played , for instance if the movie started of with a character as a little girl they had to wait for her to grow up so they could film those scenes , i have no idea where that came from, cause really nothing backs that up ! but the whole concept of other actors and makeup just wasn't gettin through.... but its ok after my mum nearly wet herself laughing she set me straight !!!!
I used to believe up until the age of ten that when you wached a movie, it was live-acted. A little signal would be sent to some studio somewhere, where all the actors were, and they would start acting the movie you were watching. If you paused it they all had to stand still and wait till you hit Play again. I always wondered how if two people were watching different movies with the same actor in it, how the actor could act two movies at once and appear to only be doing one at a time. I also wondered why they never messed up a line or forgot to do something.
When I was little I loved the movie Mary Poppins. I thought if I took my pink umbrella outside and the wind picked up just right I could fly like her. Fortunately I didn't do anything crazy like jump off the roof of the house.
My Nephew Stephen used to always ask if he could watch on VHS the Movie Prince Of Pizza. This was actually The Prince Of Egypt and when He got older he would get annoyed at us when we kept asking him to repeat it, because he thought we were making fun of him.
On "Entertainment Tonight", they had a promo about "Zoolander" ... andthe way they did the promo, I thought that Derek Zoolander was an actual male model ... who looked remarkably like Ben Stiller ...
When I was little and saw a black and white film I thought that the actors actually had black and white vision and not color. I thought that color didnt exist in their world.
The first time i went to the cinema i went iwth my family and we sat at the very back. i wanted to get up to go to the bathroom but my brother said that if i get up i might block the projector and the people in the movie would pop out and get me coz i ruined their movie...
i was around 13 when i realised that wasnt true.
