Now let us talk about their kissing scene that was featured in the movie. A few weeks after the movie premiered, Shailene Woodley revealed that she felt very uncomfortable during their kissing scene, but not because of the actor he was doing it with – it was because of what the actor was taking that time. During the filming of the movie, Miles Teller took some herbal supplements to energize himself on the set and there was nothing wrong with that reason – what was wrong was the supplements’ unpleasant taste. Shailene Woodley said that their kissing scene was really an unbearable experience for her as she could taste the herbal supplement from Miles Teller’s mouth.
Steve Carell and Dwayne Johnson – Get Smart
Working in the acting industry is no joke. Actors and actresses, most of the time, need to get out of their comfort zone just for a scene in a movie, an interview, and other things they do in front of the camera. The same thing happened to the cast of Get Smart. It is a comedy, with a mix of action, and was released in 2008. Well, as we have said, there is nothing impossible in the acting industry – Steve Carell (Maxwell Smart) and Dwayne Johnson (Agent 23) had a kissing scene. Now, actors and actresses kissing the same sex are not new to people, especially for a comedy movie, but Dwayne had something to say about his experience of kissing Steve. In an interview, he shared that kissing his co-star, Steve Carell felt very weird. He also described Carell’s lips as the bottom part of a cat’s paw and his tongue feeling like clay. Well, they were both straight, so we could not blame them for feeling weird.
Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze – Dirty Dancing
Dirty Dancing is a romance slash dance-themed movie that was aired in the cinemas in 1987. The lead roles of the film were portrayed by Jennifer Grey (Frances “Baby” Houseman) and Patrick Swayze (Johnny Castle). The two really had great chemistry, but it seemed like it was only the audience and everyone but them who saw and felt that chemistry. Weeks after the release of Dirty Dancing, Patrick Swayze revealed that working with Jennifer Grey was something he did not like. He said that the actress had overflowing emotions which kind of destroyed some scenes. Maybe that was the reason why they were not fond of their kissing scene – they could kiss everyone and anyone but each other.
Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst – Spider-Man
The famous Spider-man is a movie that features fantasy and action. It was launched in 2002. The people who played the characters of Spider-Man and Mary Jane Watson were Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst, respectively. The kissing scene that happened in this movie was one of the greatest kissing scenes that ever happened in the history of filmmaking – well, maybe for the audience. Despite the romantic and cool effect the upside-down kissing scene brought to people, Tobey Maguire felt nothing but uneasiness. He revealed that he felt very uncomfortable during the kissing scene, but he cleared that it was not because of the actress he was doing it with. He said that aside from the fact that his body was literally upside down as he was kissing Kirsten Dunst, what made it very uneasy was the rainwater that kept on filling his nose up.
Kate Hudson and Dane Cook – My Best Friend’s Girl
The 2008 movie, My Best Friend’s Girl, is a rom-com that had Kate Hudson (Alexis) and Dane Cook (Tank) as the movie’s main cast. Filming movies and TV shows are ways that actors, actresses, and other people working in the industry bond and get to know each other. During the making of this film, Dane Cook really got to know his co-star, Kate Hudson. He knew her as a very energetic actress that simply loves playing around and having fun in the set. In an interview that happened in 2014, Cook shared his experience of kissing Kate Hudson and said that it was not great. First, he had a disclaimer that he had nothing against the actress. He even said the reason as to why he did not like their kissing scene in a funny and kidding way – before filming the kissing scene, Hudson ate a few onions which Cook could perfectly tell because he literally tasted it the whole time they were kissing.
Kirsten Dunst and Brad Pitt – Interview with the Vampire
Interview with the Vampire is a 1994 movie that features horror and romance. The characterizations of the main roles, Claudia and Louis de Pointe du Lac were played by Kirsten Dunst and Brad Pitt. Being a romantic movie, Interview with the Vampire had a kissing scene and the actress had to say something about that. She said that even though kissing Brad Pitt was not something everyone could do, she felt very uncomfortable. During the making of this film, Brad Pitt was 31 years old and Kirsten Dunst was only turning 12 years old. The huge age gap was the thing that bothered the actress. Now that you know how old and young both of them were at that time, what do you think?

Months after the movie was launched, it was revealed that Emma Watson and Rupert Grint were not really fond of each other off the cameras and even had some awkward moments. The directors did not know what was happening between the two, but they surely knew that the two had no chemistry. However, the kissing scene turned out really great because of the actor and actresses’ great acting – kudos to both of them for the professionalism they had shown!

She really did not have any specific reasons as to why she did not like having a kissing scene with the actor, but she did say that she would rather kiss anyone, even a person of the same sex, than James Franco.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Virginie Ledoyen – The Beach
DiCaprio’s supporters and fans might be surprised to see their celebrity idol on the list, but here it goes. The Beach is a drama slash adventure film that was released in 2000.

She claimed that there was something missing with Leonardo’s kisses and said that it was not passionate enough.
Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan – 50 Shades of Grey
Now, let us talk about one of the sexiest movies ever made in the filmmaking industry. 50 Shades of Grey is a romance and drama film that aired in cinemas in 2015. I know it might be surprising to see the movie and its lead roles on this list because the film was full of very intimate and passionate scenes – so what went wrong? A few weeks after the movie premiered, it was revealed that Dakota Johnson (Anastasia Steele) and Jamie Dornan (Christian Grey), themselves, did not feel any chemistry on the set even though many people, especially their fans, adored how much they looked very good together. Dornan was the one to share his experiences about all the uneasiness he and Dakota felt as they were shooting the intimate scenes.

Silver is a movie with a mix of thriller and romance as its theme. It was released in the cinemas in 1993. The lead roles of Carly Norris and Zeke Hawkins were portrayed by Sharon Stone and William Baldwin, respectively. The film had a kissing scene featuring the two actors. Well, it was not the first time people saw Sharon Stone sharing an intimate scene with someone – she was pretty good and the acting was on point. So it is very obvious that the flaw was made by William Baldwin. Months after the movie was launched, Sharon Stone had the chance to share the experience of kissing William Baldwin in front of the cameras. She said that as soon as the scene was cut, she immediately looked for mouthwash and there was something even worse than that – Baldwin accidentally bit the actress’ tongue while they were kissing.

DiCaprio said that he could not take the actress’s attitude of being too moralistic anymore, while Danes said that seeing the actor’s foolish behavior off-camera was a dealbreaker. Well, kudos to the professionalism that they had shown in front of the cameras – their great acting skills made Romeo + Juliet a hit.

Little did they all know, both of them were in an uncomfortable state during the filming of that scene. Weeks after the movie premiered, it was revealed that Reese Witherspoon was kind of disgusted by the scene, but she cleared that it was not because of Robert Pattinson, himself. She said that it was because of the actor’s condition at that time. As they were filming the kissing scene, Pattinson was suffering from a cold – that was why his nose was full of mucus at that time. Well, I guess if Pattinson did not suffer from a cold that time, this movie and its lead roles would not be on this list.
Alyson Hannigan and Jason Segel – How I Met Your Mother
Let us give it up for Lily Aldrin and Marshall Eriksen! They are one of the main characters of the TV show, How I Met Your Mother. Alyson Hannigan played the role of Lily, the girlfriend, and eventually, the wife of Marshall who was played by Jason Segel. In the series, being the couple for more than a decade already gave them a lot of kissing scenes. During an interview, Alyson shared her opinion about kissing Jason Segel. She said that at first, she was kind of disgusted and uncomfortable because when How I Met Your Mother started filming, Segel was still really fond of smoking. She could sense the nicotine as they were kissing. The good thing was that Alyson Hannigan did not keep it to herself and confronted the actor about all the smoking and the kissing scenes. That constructive criticism made Jason Segel quit smoking.
Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried – Jennifer’s Body
As I have said earlier, working in the acting industry is always going out of your comfort zone. Films, interviews, and TV shows would really push actors to do unusual things and that happened to Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfriend. The horror-comedy film, Jennifer’s Body had a kissing scene that featured the actresses.

Wanted is an action slash thriller that was released in 2008. The main roles of Fox and Wesley Gibson were played by Angelina Jolie and James McAvoy, respectively.

Although the scene did not make it to the final editing of the movie, Carey Mulligan (Carol Slayman) filmed a kissing scene with Johnny Depp (John Dillinger). The reason as to why their kissing scene was not shown in the movie was because the scene did not look natural at all. The kissing action looked pretty bad and with an interview, it was revealed that Carey Mulligan had a subtle crush on the actor – the idea of kissing him for a film shook her senses and made her completely tense.

It was revealed that they were uncomfortable not because they were disgusting or anything – they felt awkward because of the fact that they were both married people.

A scene required Kristen Stewart, who was portraying Bella Swan, and Taylor Lautner, who was portraying Jacob Black, to film a passionate kissing scene together. Even though Kristen Stewart already had admitted that shooting scenes like that one had always been uncomfortable for her, the kissing scene that she had with Lautner was way more awkward and weird compared to all of the intimate scenes she had already filmed. What made the actors feel more uneasy was the fact that Kristen Stewart was still in a relationship that time with Robert Pattinson, who was also in the set because he played the character of Edward Cullen.
Julia Roberts and Nick Nolte – I Love Trouble
I Love Trouble is a romantic slash comedy film that was released in the middle of 1994. The directors and producers had chosen Julia Roberts and Nick Nolte to play the main roles of Sabrina Peterson and Peter Brackett, respectively. Despite the great acting skills both of the actors had, it seemed like everyone who worked behind the film had a difficult time shooting the kissing scenes that featured Roberts and Nolte. Off the camera, the two had never been on good terms. They had always loathed and hated each other. That was why they individually filmed the kissing scenes and had doubles to portray each other. Kudos to the editing team for making such a thing possible – the movie turned out really great!
Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt – Passengers
I am pretty sure that the saying did not say that fourth time’s a charm – this is Jennifer Lawrence’s fourth appearance in the list, so what is the matter this time? Here we go.

However, weeks after the movie premiered, Lawrence revealed that she felt really uneasy with the kissing scene, but it was not because of the actor she was doing it with.

The film’s lead roles, Rick Deckard and Rachael, were played by Harrison Ford and Sean Young, respectively. As they always say, working in the acting industry requires people to step out of their comfort zones and I guess kissing someone you really hate is a way of going out of your comfort zone. That was what happened with the film’s main characters, both of them really hated each other on and off cameras, but they were required to film a kissing scene together. Well, both Ford and Young were very great actors that were why the kissing scene turned out very natural and passionate. However, in an interview that happened a few weeks after the movie aired in the cinemas, Sean Young revealed that other than the loath she had always felt for the actor, kissing him was a horrible experience because of his very disturbing facial hair.

As soon as Lindsay Lohan learned that she was about to shoot a kissing scene with Charlie Sheen, she imposed several guidelines and limitations both of them, especially Sheen, should follow when they would already film the kissing scene. That was normal and Charlie immediately agreed to it, but what surprised Charlie was the contract confirming that both of them were not suffering from colds and other infectious diseases. The actor felt a little bit off about the agreement, but he signed it anyway. Even though what Lohan did was pretty offensive, Sheen just let it go and went on good terms with the actress – he even helped her pay her taxes.
Julia Roberts and Denzel Washington – The Pelican Brief
The Pelican Brief is a thriller that aired in the cinemas in 1993. The movie’s lead roles, Darby Shaw and Gray Grantham were portrayed by Julia Roberts and Denzel Washinton, respectively. The two almost filmed a kissing scene together. What made the word “almost” appear in the previous sentence was because Denzel Washington chose to stand by his morals and principles in life. Even though millions of hearts had already been snatched by Julia Robert’s beauty, he stood firm with his principle that he would rather see and kiss a woman of color in such a movie. As we all see, Roberts is white and Washington just wanted to break the stigma, saying that beauty could only be seen in white people. As she heard the reason, Julia Roberts immediately understood the actor’s sentiments, though she still felt sad because she was the one who pushed the directors and producers to cast Washington in the movie.

However, most of the Modern Family fans kept on looking for a scene where Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson would have the chance to kiss – they expressed this sentiment through different social media sites.

One year after the movie aired in the cinemas, Helen Mirren had the chance to share her experience of kissing the actor.

However, in an interview that happened a few weeks after the movie premiered, James Franco shared his opinions about the kissing scene that she shared with Sienna Miller. He said that it was kind of underwhelming because he felt no heat and intense at all, but other than that, everything was fine.
Selena Gomez and Dylan Sprouse – The Suite Life of Zack and Cody

If you would search and look at the cast of The Suite Life of Zack & Cody, Selena Gomez would not be found because she just made an appearance in one of its episodes. It just happened that Dylan Sprouse was required to share a kissing scene with her in the episode where she briefly made an appearance. Selena eventually revealed in an interview that she really felt uneasy with the kissing scene because not only was it her first time to kiss someone in front of cameras, it was also her very first time to kiss a person in real life, lips to lips. She was embarrassed as she shared the story of how the scene was filmed – she did not know how to kiss someone so she just closed her eyes and put her face closer to Dylan’s which caused her to miss half of the actor’s lips and ended up kissing his chin. Well, there is always a first time for everybody!
Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom – Pirates of the Caribbean
Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom played the roles of Elizabeth Swann and Will Turner in the film series, Pirates of the Caribbean. Well, Keira had a kissing scene with Johnny Depp (Captain Jack Sparrow) first before having to film a kissing scene with Bloom. However, it seemed like Keira Knightley only liked the scene that she shared with Depp and not the one she had with Orlando Bloom because in an interview that was hosted by InStyle, she was asked to share her thoughts about kissing both actors and she only shared the experience of kissing Johnny Depp. Well, it was like an indirect way of saying that kissing Orlando Bloom was not a great experience. Did Johnny Depp set the bars too high? Was Orlando Bloom a really bad kisser? We would never know.

No Strings Attached is a 2011 film that featured romance and comedy at the same time. Natalie Portman was the one who portrayed the character of the female lead, Emma as Ashton Kutcher was the one who played the character of the male lead, Adam. Being the lead role in a romantic film, kissing scenes should not be surprising anymore. However, it seemed like Natalie Portman really saw the act of kissing as a special gesture. She felt really uncomfortable as she kissed the actor because she believed that people should only kiss people who they actually loved. Well, as they always say, working in the industry would really push actors and actresses to step out of their comfort zone – that was why Portman had to be professional and just go with the flow.
Debra Winger and Richard Gere – An Officer and a Gentleman

Everything was going fine in the set until Debra Winger found out that she was required to film a kissing scene with her co-star Richard Gere. It was not like she was disgusted by the actor she was going to do it with, she just really respected the act of kissing and felt uncomfortable with the idea of simply kissing anybody for entertainment. The actress really freaked out and even called the director an animal and her co-star as a brick wall.

It was revealed that ever since the filming began, he did not like Shannen Doherty’s attitude – he actually did not like anything about her. He even shared his sentiments about working with the Mallrats cast and said that he had a really difficult time working with Doherty.
