It’s Christmas time, so every TV station is playing Love Actually on repeat.
But no matter how many times we have seen it, it turns out that there is a hidden message in the film that we all missed.
In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Martine McCutcheon (who plays Natalie in the film) explained that the jokes about her character being overweight with “a sizeable ass… huge thighs” - were actually so ridiculous on purpose.
"Her issues weren’t real issues.
"Every woman thinks there’s something wrong with them when in actual fact, they are perfect and lovely as they are. She was meant to be the embodiment of that.
"You're meant to go: ''No she's not [fat], I think she's lovely!'' because that's how men think about a lot of women who constantly criticise each other and themselves.”
It turns out the film was trying to tecah us all a good lesson!
Spread the love this Christmas, folks!
