A lot of celebs hook up in real life after steamy on screen loves scenes, others regret taking the job. Over the years, various celebs have spoken out about some iconic filmed kiss scenes that were a terrible experiences.
Miles Teller says Shailene Woodley’s healthy lifestyle contributed to stinky breath for their kissing scene in “The Spectacular Now.” “Before our first kissing scene, Shailene took these Chinese dirt supplements and shoved them in her mouth,” he once said. “It’s like a dirt pouch, and it smells like crap.”
Morena Baccarin plays Ryan Reynolds love interest in Deadpool but says her terrible kissing experience is more due to his costume, “I keep saying that kissing him in that mask is like kissing a giant latex condom. It basically just smells like rubber the entire time.”
Robert Pattinson admitted that his kiss with Reese Witherspoon in “Water for Elephants” probably wasn’t enjoyable. Pattinson says, “I was doing it when I had a really bad cold. My nose is running all over the place, and it was in one of the additional photography scenes, and Reesehad this wig on, and literally, I was wiping my nose on her wig.”
That iconic upside down kiss in Spider-Man with Kirsten Dunst and Tobey Maguire was nothing romantic at all. Maguire explains, “I was hanging upside down, it was really late at night, it was raining, and the whole time, I had rainwater running up my nose,” he told Parade years ago. “Then, when Kirsten rolled back the wet mask, she cut off the air completely.”
Jennifer Lawrence played a prank on Liam Hemsworth by eating stinky foods right before every kissing scene in “The Hunger Games”. Hemsworth says, “She would make a point of eating garlic or tuna fish or something that was disgusting. Right before the scene, she’d be like, ‘Yeah, I ate tuna,’ or ‘I had garlic, and I didn’t brush my teeth.’ And I’d be like, ‘Fantastic, I can’t wait to get in there and taste it!’”
Thandie Newton had to kiss Tom Cruise for “Mission: Impossible 2” and hated every moment of it. She’s said, “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.”
Virginie Ledoyen was the lucky actress that got to lock lips with Leonardo DiCaprio in “The Beach” but she can’t even remember it. She says, “There [was] no honest passion. No real sensitivity in our love scenes. In our underwater love scenes all I could think of was not drowning. I can’t even remember his kiss.”
