If you love The Holiday the way it is, then just don’t read on, because this new fan theory will change the way you see if forever.
The modern Christmas rom-com classic stars Kate Winslet, Jude Law, Cameron Diaz (before she vanished from Hollywood) and Jack Black.
A Reddit user named tectonic_fever shared a post on the Fan Theories forum suggesting Kate Winslet’s character’s reason for using the Home Exchange website is so much darker than we all thought.
“This idea makes the mediocre Christmas movie so much more entertaining,”
“Kate Winslet and Jude Law are laying a trap where he will seduce Cameron Diaz, marry her, kill her, and inherit her fortune.
“Jude Law already murdered his first wife so he could inherit her house.
“Now he and his sister have used the house swap scheme to get Cameron Diaz into their town, while Kate Winslet can investigate and make sure Cameron has enough money and property (and no family/entanglements) to be worth the effort of seducing her and then disposing of her.”
“Kate is so overjoyed to see how grand and luxurious Cameron’s house is because she knows she and Jude have hit the jackpot.
“Meanwhile, Jude carefully sets up an ‘accidental’ meeting and manipulates Cameron to develop a relationship and get his claws into her.
“Everything that follows is orchestrated to carry out their plot.”
“Kate Winslet was maybe also planning to seduce and marry the old screenwriter and wait for him to die and leave her his house/fortune, until Jack Black interfered.”
Ok, well that’s creepy.
