* DawsonCasting: Famously averted, or at least downplayed. Olivia was actually a teenager when she played Juliet. [[note]]The character of Juliet was meant to be ''13-going-on-14'' though, in Shakespeare's play. The actress was 16 or 17 at the time of filming.[[/note]]

** Led to a funny bit of irony. When the movie was released in 1968, she wasn't allowed to attend the London premier because a nude scene in the film gave it a rating too high for the then-17 year old. The nude scene in question? ''Her own.''
