Click through for surprising facts—from on-set feuds to casting swaps—behind 15 cult-classic holiday movies.

Love Actually

We thinkEmma Thompsonlooks pretty fantastic inLove Actually, but believe it or not, she was actually wearing a fat suit to make her character look a little more frumpy.

Another fun fact?Kris Marshall, who played Colin—the guy who trekked to the United States to get laid—had so much fun filming with three American babes that he worked that day for free.

Elf

It’s hard to imagine anyone other than Will Ferrellplaying Buddy the Elf, but originally, the part belonged toJim Carrey. The script was written in 1993, and it took 10 years for it to actually happen. By then, Ferrell was a bigger get.

Home Alone

Home Alonehas been billed as a movie that’s fun for viewers of all ages, but there’s one person in the film who isn’t exactly a family-friendly type of guy:Joe Pesci, who played bad guy Harry Lime. Pesci reportedly cursed so much on set that director Chris Columbus urged him to sayfridgeinstead of, er, the other word. But when you cast the dude fromGoodfellasin your movie, you’re kind of asking for it, right?

It's a Wonderful Life

It may be a holiday classic now, but when it first came out,It’s a Wonderful Lifewas considered a dud. Also hard to believe: It was actually filmed in California during July. All that snow is totally fake.

Four Christmases

If you thinkReese WitherspoonandVince Vaughnhad great chemistry inFour Christmases, chalk it up to good acting. They reportedly argued so much on set that it caused filming delays. Vaughn is prone to improvise lines, while Witherspoon is a very rehearsed actress. The two didnotget along.

Miracle on 34th Street

It can be tricky filming a movie about Santa starring an eight-year-old, but the magic wasn’t shattered for little Natalie Wood. In fact, she believed costar Edmund Gwenn reallywasSanta the whole time they were filming. That is, until the wrap party, when she saw him freshly shaven.

A Christmas Story

Even if you always watch TBS’s 24-hour marathon ofA Christmas Story allllllday long, we bet you didn’t know that the Chinese restaurant scene had some real-life surprises for the movie family. They reportedly had no idea the waiters were going to come to their table and sing. Their laughter is real!

The Holiday

This rom-com is surelyJude Lawat his most charming. And it’s no wonder: The director had him study Clark Gable and base his character on him. And you know the Blockbuster video store scene withDustin Hoffman? It was totally improvised. Hoffman was driving by the video store and saw that a movie was being filmed there, and director Nancy Myers created the cameo just for him.

Bridget Jones's Diary

Most people know thatRenee Zellwegergained 25 pounds to play Bridget Jones, but that wasn’t the only extreme thing she did for the role. She also worked for a month in a real publishing house, and somehow, her coworkers didn’t realize who she really was. She even had a framed photo of then-boyfriendJim Carreyon her desk, which her colleagues did think was a bit odd …

Jingle All the Way

Arnold Schwarzeneggermay have had to fight through mall crowds in Jingle All the Way,but he had it easy compared with costar Dan Riordan, who played Turbo Man. Riordan was reportedly so afraid of heights that the role was hard for him to play, and he had to mentally prepare himself for each take.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas

>Jim Carreymade for a pretty epic Grinch in the 2000 movie, butJack NicholsonandEddie Murphywere also considered for the role. And Carrey really suffered for the part. His prosthetic makeup was so irritating that a Navy SEAL had to teach him some torture-resistance techniques to help him grin and bear it. No wonder the Grinch was so grumpy.

Serendipity

Serendipityinspires all sorts of good feelings about soul mates and fate. And it seemsJohn Cusackwas destined to star in it as well, given some pretty interesting coincidences that occurred. It wasn’t his first movie in which the bookLove in the Time of Cholerawas mentioned—it’s referenced in his movieHigh Fidelityas well. It’s also not his first time talking about the Cassiopeia constellation. Cusack points it out to hisThe Sure Thinglove interest too.

First, when Allen picks up a tool belt in Santa’s workshop and then puts it back down shaking his head, and then when the show’s actor Jimmy Labriola makes a cameo as a truck driver.
