Have you ever dreamed of getting a steamy kiss from your Hollywood crush? I would assume that most people have that one person that they would drop everything for, just for a chance at that small amount of physical intimacy. Have you ever been jealous of that actor or actress that got a little on-screen smooch from your crush? You might not feel that way after reading this piece, if your crush happens to be on it.
Here are 8 awful kissing scenes as described by the actors themselves.
1. Kirsten Dunst and Brad Pitt - Interview with the Vampire
Brad Pitt has been deemed one of the sexiest men in Hollywood for a long time. Women (and some men) had swooned over him, wondering what it would be like to get a kiss from him. According to Kirsten Dunst, who kissed the actor when she was 11 years old, "it was disgusting."
“I thought it was disgusting. It was like – I was eleven. It would have been weird if I was like ‘this is amazing, I’m kissing Brad Pitt.’ Like then I think people would think I was a little bit off.”
2. Jennifer Lawrence and Everyone - Multiple Movies
Jennifer Lawrence broke onto the Hollywood scene with her portrayal of Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games, and she quickly became one of Hollywood's hottest stars. But apparently her kissing scenes are somewhat dreaded by her co-stars. Josh Hutcherson said that her kisses were "slobbery," and Liam Hemsworth said that anytime they had a kissing scene lined up, Lawrence would intentionally eat something like garlic or tuna for some reason.
3. Julia Roberts and Clive Owen - Duplicity
It turns out that Julia Roberts is a huge fan of peanut butter sandwiches, a fact that made kissing her unpleasant, according to costar Clive Owen. Owen said that doing any intimate scenes with Roberts was quite difficult because she loved to mow down on peanut butter sandwiches in between takes. It wasn't all bad though, Roberts knew Owen well enough that she actually warned him, and would even ask for a breath mint.
4. Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller - The Spectacular Now
There are a lot of "fad" diets and herbal nutritional supplements out there on the market, and some of them tend to have some interesting side effects. It turns out that Shailene Woodley is a big fan of a certain Chinese herbal supplement that according to Miles Teller, made Woodley's breath smell like "crap."
“She would take these herbal supplements, these Chinese herbal supplements, and they tasted like crap. And she would always eat them right before we had a kissing scene! We put stuff in our mouths so we could just offend each other," said Teller.
I hope your dream kiss hasn't been ruined yet, but there are still four more examples left to go.
5. Tom Cruise with Thandie Newton - Mission Impossible 2
Tom Cruise was once considered to be one of the most attractive men in Hollywood. He was also one of the biggest movie stars of the 90s and early 2000s. But during the filming of Mission Impossible 2, he had to share a couple of kisses with co-star Thandie Newton, and Newton was not a fan of them.
“Kissing Tom Cruise was slightly icky and sort of wet. I’d really go home at the end of the day actually moaning about… how many times we had to do it,” said Newton
6. Bradley Cooper with Jennifer Lawrence - Silver Linings Playbook
Lawrence already made this list in her own right, but she has her own complaints about kissing co-stars, specifically Bradley Cooper. She even told Cooper to his face that "his kisses were wet." Cooper wasn't pleased with the comments because obviously they were not meant as compliments.
7. Kate Hudson with Dane Cook - My Best Friend's Girl
Kate Hudson was once the queen of romantic comedies, and these often involved more than a few intimate kissing scenes. Dane Cook was asked about who his worst kiss was with, and he didn't even take a moment to think about it before naming Kate Hudson as the perpetrator. According to Cook, while he was kissing Hudson, all he could taste was a bushel of onions.
8. Angelina Jolie with James McAvoy - Wanted
Angelina Jolie is without a doubt a beautiful woman, and men everywhere would line up for a chance to get just a small kiss from her. James McAvoy starred alongside her in Wanted, and got just that opportunity, but he wasn't impressed with it.
“I can tell you what it was like to kiss her on a film set: It was awkward, sweaty and not very nice. There was angst involved in that, as always. I don’t think Brad Pitt felt threatened for one moment,” said McAvoy.
