Just when we thought every part of Love Actually had been analysed about a thousand times by multiple different people, we’ve finally learnt something new about everyone’s favourite Christmas film.
During an interview with GQ, the 27-year-old said that he got pretty far into the process before producers decided to go with someone else: “I remember reading some of the scenes with Hugh Grant [who played the Prime Minister] and Richard Curtis [who wrote and directed Love Actually]”.
The role eventually went to Thomas Brodie-Sangster who went on to star in Game Of Thrones and the Maze Runner film series.
In the same interview, Joe spilled a few details about his relationship with Taylor and said that neither of them realised their matching cactus photos would cause such a social-media storm.
“No, no [it wasn’t on purpose]! It wasn’t purposeful at all!” he said, before refusing to name his favourite track from the singer: “I’m just not even going to go into that side of the world.”
While Joe isn’t massively keen on talking about their relationship, that hasn’t stopped Taylor from sharing a plug to his latest film on her social-media page: “The Favourite is absolutely phenomenal, and it opens in NY and LA tomorrow— Swipe to see cities and dates! @thefavouritemovie @joe.alwyn @nicholashoult”
