Quasi 20 years after starring in the beloved holiday classic, the Academy Award winner, 63, admitted this week on Lo spettacolo di stasera Protagonista Jimmy Fallon that she doesn’t watch Amore attuale ogni anno.
“No, era 20 anni fa,” Thompson told Fallon, 48, del 2003 ensemble comedy.
When asked if it’s fun to look back and reminisce on making the movie, lei disse “non proprio,” aggiungendo: “No, you just say, ‘I don’t know if I was very well paid for that. That was that terrible trailer with the loo that really stank’ … it’s just the things you remember.”
In Amore attuale, Thompson plays Karen, a stay-at-home mother who discovers her husband Harry (Alan Rickman) is cheating on her.

Thompson confirmed she’s received countless Joni Mitchell CDs from fans over the years, in reference to her character’s most devastating scene in the movie. “I have a separate house for those,” ha scherzato.
The star-studded holiday ensemble also featured Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Colin Firth, Liam Neeson, Laura Linney, Martin Freeman, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Andrew Lincoln, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Rodrigo Santoro, Bill Nighy e Billy Bob Thorton.
Thompson and her costars previously reflected on the movie with Diane Sawyer for the ABC News special The Laughter & Secrets of Love Actually: 20 Anni dopo, which aired last month ahead of the movie’s 20th anniversary.
“There is such extraordinary love that goes on every minute in so many ways [nella vita], all the way around the world, and makes me wish my film was better,” Curti, 66, disse. “It makes me wish I’d made a documentary just to kind of observe it.”
