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.
