“Love Actually” Had A Heartbreaking Lesbian Plot That Got Cut From The Movie

It’s extremely upsetting.

1. Christmas classic Love Actually is obviously a delightful yet bittersweet film, but it turns out it could have been EVEN more emotional.

2. On the DVD extras of Love Actually, Richard Curtis reveals that a scene involving a same-sex relationship was cut from the film.

The lack of same-sex relationships in the film has been criticised on several occasions.

3. While the Christmas movie only features heterosexual couples, in the original script there was an extremely moving story about an older lesbian couple.

4. The subplot originally involved the headmistress at Emma Thompson’s son’s school, whose character was eventually cut altogether.

The headmistress’s partner was played by Frances de la Tour, who you might recognise as Madame Maxime from Harry Potter.
