“On Bill Hader’s coverage, nobody was dancing but he had to react as if we were, so I surprised him and full out did the dance for his reaction shot. And you can see him getting emotional. It was really sweet. It’s something that I will never ever forget.”
Love Actually (2003)
“He had planned where he turns and what goes where, so the fact that he didn’t want to do it didn’t mean that he didn’t prepare for it.” (Richard Curtis on Hugh Grant)

3. Andie (Molly Ringwald) in Pretty in Pink (1986)

4. Gabrielle Union (Eva (Gabrielle Union) in Deliver Us from Eva (2003)
