14 Onscreen Pairs Who Didn’t Enjoy The Kissing Scenes

Movie actors lead a strange sort of double life. They have to portray their onscreen personas convincingly and then return to reality with their genuine feelings and thoughts. Intimate movie scenes complicate things when stars have no chemistry but have to convince viewers that they do. Here are some actors who admit to not enjoying their onscreen kissing scenes at all.

Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson (Water for Elephants)

The world may have loved to see Reese Witherspoon and teen-heartthrob RobPat share a steamy kiss but the beautiful actress did not enjoy it. She claimed that the kissing part of the filming was “unpleasant” since Pattinson had a runny nose at that time. This MTV interview left many fan-girls shocked and upset. To each his own, girls!

Kate Hudson and Dane Cook (My Best Friend’s Girl)

Fans of Kate Hudson were incredibly upset with handsome comic Dane Cook when he dubbed their kiss his “worst onscreen kiss ever”. But apparently, he was just kidding when he claimed that she purposefully munched on onions before every kissing scene. He is a comedian people, he was just joking. Hopefully.

Kirsten Dunst and Tobey Maguire (Spiderman)

Remember that heart-stopping romantic scene when Spiderman’s lady love kisses him on a rainy night while he hangs upside-down in an alleyway? According to Tobey, that was the “hardest thing” he had to do while playing Spiderman. Not because of anything else but that rainwater kept running up his nose, given his pose and when Kirsten pulled off his mask, it cut off air supply further discomforting him. Poor Spiderman!

Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried (Jennifer’s Body)

The makers of Jennifer’s Body had hoped that the kiss between the two divas would win the movie many viewers. And perhaps that’s why the two stars agreed to it even. Seyfried openly claims that she was initially uncomfortable with the idea but eventually gave in to it because it would “play a really big role in publicizing the movie”.

Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan (Fifty Shades of Grey)

Fans were waiting for the Fifty Shades of Grey movie with bated breaths, thinking it would take raunchy to the next level. They were for great disappointment for the lead pair shared absolutely no chemistry and Dornan admitted that both he and Johnson were very uncomfortable during the intimate scenes. Better casting people, better casting!

Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1)

The world loves JLaw and everything about her but Liam Hemsworth does not agree. He claimed that Lawrence had the worst smelling breath which made kissing scenes very “gross”. But the real story is that both of them are great friends off-screen and the quirky actress would purposely eat foul-smelling stuff before intimate scenes to prank him.

Emma Watson and Rupert Grint (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2)

Filming kissing scenes with people you have worked with for a decade since childhood can be somewhat strange. Emma Watson admitted that kissing Grint was the “weirdest” thing, while the actor deemed it “unnatural”. We sympathize but we enjoyed their lip-lock immensely nonetheless.

Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling (The Notebook)

That passionate kiss in the middle of the field was something out of a fantasy. But filming it was far less romantic since McAdams and Gosling weren’t on the best of terms at that time. They had apparently had a verbal dual before the scene; maybe they channelized their fury into that sizzling kiss, making it a memorable cinematic moment.

Marilyn Monroe and Tony Curtis (Some Like It Hot)

Monroe and Curtis had been lovers in their youth but things had clearly gone south by the time they shot Some Like It Hot. In fact, Curtis went as far as to claim that kissing Monroe was “like kissing Hitler”. If his version of the story is to be believed, Monroe was being utterly aggressive, deliberately trying to choke him with her tongue down his throat. Talk about drama!

Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze (Dirty Dancing)

Grey’s memoirs made it clear that he did not enjoy working with Swayze. They may have shared wonderful onscreen chemistry, but on the sets, he was frustrated by her over-sensitivity and moody disposition. Naturally, he wasn’t too keen to kiss her either, but well, you gotta do what the script says, eh?

Steve Carell and Dwayne Johnson (Get Smart)

Male actors kissing onscreen is common, though not always easy to film. Carell and Johnson certainly didn’t have the easiest time though they did what they needed to do. Johnson later described Carell’s tongue as feeling like “kitty litter” and lips as the “soft, supple part of a cat’s paw”. He was joking though since he can take such liberties with good friend Steve.

Alyson Hannigan and Jason Segel (How I Met Your Mother)

Lily and Marshall may have been your favourite couple from How I Met Your Mother but initially, that’s not exactly the sentiment they shared. Hannigan wasn’t too pleased to be kissing Segel for he smelled of cigarettes since he was a smoker. After a few episodes and lots of displeasure from Hannigan, the actor decided to quit smoking and then it was all good.

Julia Roberts and Nick Nolte (I Love Trouble)

The I Love Trouble co-stars could not stand each other in real life, if reports are to be believed. They often had verbal spats, sometimes tried to agitate each other on purpose and eventually even began shooting separately whenever possible. It’s not surprising they didn’t want to kiss each other and what can we say? The camera couldn’t hide their lack of chemistry!

Vanessa Hudgens and James Franco (Spring Breakers)

Vanessa Hudgens had to kiss not just Franco, but also her female co-star Alyson Benson for the 2013 flick Spring Breakers. She admitted in an interview later that she had no problems kissing Benson but kissing James Franco was not at all great – her worst onscreen kiss apparently!
