12 Unheard Behind-The-Scene Stories About '10 Things I Hate About You'

10 Things I Hate About You was such a successful film that the characters and the plot-line were re-created for a TV show of the same name in 2009. Although it couldn't live up to the mark. The late 90's flick that was, in turn, inspired by Shakespeare's comedy 'The Taming of the Shrew' was one of the best teen rom-com of the decade. We couldn't have asked for a better cast. Ever-charming Heath Ledger, adorable Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and flawless Julia Stiles became the heart-throbs of millions who watched this cute movie.

Here are some behind-the-scenes facts that will make you fall in love with t he story and the characters even more. That is if that is possible.
