Study: The sadder the movie, the more popcorn you'll eat

Posted: Updated:

Researchers at Cornell Food and Brand Lab determined that people typically eat more food when they're watching sad movies.

In their study, they found that those who watched sad movies ate about 55% more popcorn than those who watched a comedy.

The experts say that sad movies prompted people to eat whatever was in front of them, and suggest that by putting fruits and veggies near you during a sad movie could actually be a good thing.
