Breaking the 4th Wall

"Breaking the fourth wall" means when actors suspend the drama momentarioly to address the audience directly. This supercut has clips from 54 different films, a list of which you can see at vimeo. Language NSFW.

I don't think all of those were moments of addressing the audience. Sometimes the actor must look into the camera. It doesn't mean they are looking at the audience.

I know what you mean. I was especially confused by the Young Frankenstein clips, when they weren't even looking at the camera.
