But there's a lot that actually goes into making those movies, which often results in funny, wild, and interesting behind-the-scenes facts and moments.

20th Century Fox

Like, maybe you know that Love Actually originally had an extra (and heartbreaking) storyline that included a lesbian couple who was battling a terminal illness.

Studio Canal

Writer-director Richard Curtis revealed in the DVD extras that the scenes ultimately had to be cut, but he did make one of them available here.

Perhaps you know that the parade scenes in the original Miracle on 34th Street were shot only once and on location during the 1946 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

20th Century Fox

Maureen O'Hara wrote in her autobiography that Edmund Gwenn, who won an Oscar for playing Kris Kringle in the movie, actually played Santa in the 1946 Macy's parade, because that was the only way they'd be able to get the shots for the movie.

Or maybe you know that Jim Carrey completed torture-endurance training from the CIA to help him get through the daily 8.5 hours of makeup for playing the Grinch.
