Knightley told The Huffington Post that she enjoys being a part of a holiday tradition for lovers of the movie.

"It's amazing that it turned that kind of Christmas movie, isn't it? I don't think anyone realised it was going to do that," she recalled.

The actress continued: "It's an extraordinary thing when people come up and go, 'Oh, you know, that's the thing I watch every Christmas'. It's a lovely thing. That's why you make them."



Universal Pictures president Eddie Cunningham announced earlier this year that the studio would like Curtis to make a sequel to Love Actually, but it's not yet clear if the project is in the works.

Love Actually made more than $245 million at the global box office on its original release.
