It’s been 13 years since the Christmas film favorite The Holiday hit theaters -- and that’s enough time for Jack Black to forget he starred in it!

The actor hilariously failed to remember he appeared in the film alongside Jude Law, Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet.

The blunder occurred when the 50-year-old actor was quizzed on his favorite holiday movie by Variety recently.

“My favorite holiday film -- it’s got to be Elf,” he said. “Jon Favreau and Will Ferrell just knock it out of the park."

When told he was showing humility by not mentioning his own Christmas film, Black became puzzled.

“Do I have a Christmas movie? Which one is mine?” he asked before being reminded about his stint as Miles in The Holiday.

“Oh, The Holiday! Obviously, The Holiday!” he exclaimed. “Nancy Meyers -- genius.”

The Holiday follows a newly dumped Brit, Iris (Winslet), as she embarks on an international house swap with California native Amanda (Diaz), both of whom end up finding romance with locals while navigating their new environment over the holidays.
