When I was four I'd never been to the movies before. My sister and cousins took me along with them to see Mary Poppins. I got bored with the movie and screamed for them to change the channel because I thought it was an enormous tv.

For a long time I thought Alfred Hitchcock directed the movie Jaws. In fact I didn't realise the truth until I was 18 and someone corrected me..

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.

when i was little and saw the first star wars movies multiple times in different theaters, i was confused because i thought that the actors were *behind* the screen... how could they be in two theaters at once?

I thought that the Kung fu expert Bruce Lee's real chinese name was "Brushlee". And it even went that far that managed to convince the staff at our local video rental shop regarding this "truth".

when i was about 6, having just seen mary poppins, i believed that if i drew a picture on the floor, i could jump into it and be transported to the place in the picture. i remember standing in a friends kitchen on a rainy day making all my friends take it in turns to jump on pictures that we'd drawn and wondering why it wouldn't work

The first feature-length film I ever watched was "The Never-Ending Story". It was longer than any TV show I had ever seen. For years, I was convinced that it was called "The Never-Ending Story" because it was so long.

Once when I was very young, my sister said I was a human being, but it sounded to me like "human bean". I had recently seen "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" and thought she was saying I was one of the pod people and I became very upset.

I use to believe that Jaws in the original movie was an enormous submarine decorated to look like a shark, and that when any actor was eaten by Jaws they would live in there for the rest of the making of the movie.

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.

When I was maybe six or seven, I saw the movie Star Wars and thought lightsabers were the coolest things ever. I asked my mom if they were real, and she said yes- but you have to be 21 or older to own one. I couldn't wait to turn 21 and buy my own lightsaber.

I used to believe that the african words in the lion king movie were just made up and never existed in real life, especially the hakuna matata song, which according to timon and pumba, means "no worries", but i just thought it was nonsense words in their made-up language, until i searched it on the internet and my mind was blown!

When i was five, I saw the movie Muppets from Space. Someone in the film writes a message in the alphabet soup that said
R U
THERE
I didn't know about texting stuff or anything back then, so i pronounced it "Roo there".

I saw the first Star Wars movie in the theatre as a kid. For my fifth birthday, I went to see it again. I was very disappointed when the movie ended because I expected it to have a different ending the second time around.

when I was younger I didn't understand why non-cartoon movies had a cast list in the end. I belived that everyone in the movie had that name they were called in it.

When I was about 4 or 5, I used to think that black and white movies were black and white because the people wore black and white clothes! I was actually caught on a home movie saying that!!

I used to believe that everything I saw in the movies was a documentary, so I could never understand why people kept rebuilding Tokyo or any of the other cities, because King Kong, Godzilla, etc were only going to come and stomp them flat.
