    20 "Love Actually" Cast Members At The Film's Premieres Vs. Recent Appearances

    It's officially Love Actually rewatch season!

    It's the 20th anniversary of Love Actually, if you can believe it.

    The film was released in November of 2003, where it proved to be a box office hit.

    Over the past two decades, the film has become a holiday classic for many, and the film's success led to a short film sequel in support of Red Nose Day that dropped in 2017.

    All these years later, Love Actually is something of a time capsule for its stars, many of whom have gone on to other major projects.
