But after so many years and times you've rewatched it, there are some facts about the movie you surely didn't know. Why not check them out, maybe it will inspire you to watch the film again. After all, winter is coming.
The Movie Title
It was supposed to be titled "3000" because that's how much money Vivian would receive per week. But it was Roy Orbison's famous song that made the film creators rethink their decision, and they decided to change the title.
It's a Actually a Disney Movie
Just like many other movies that we wouldn't normally associate with Disney - "Pearl Harbor," "Dead Poets Society" and "Father of the Bride."
Roberts Convinced Gere to Take the Role
Gere wasn't convinced that he should play Edward Lewis and almost said no, but Julia sent him a note saying "Please say yes" and convinced him to be her partner in the film. It was certainly a smart decision, for both of them.
Before Gere, the Role Was First Offered to Other Stars
Among those who turned it down are Daniel Day-Lewis, Al Pacino, Denzel Washington as well as Christopher Reeve.
