Do you remember your first kiss? Was it with the love of your life or a crush? Was it everything you hoped for or was it a bit awkward and weird? Was it romantic or during a game of spin the bottle? Whatever your first kiss was like, we’re willing to bet it was nothing like the first kisses some of the actors get. When you’re a child actor, chances are you’re going to grow up in front of the camera. All of your big life events are probably going to be caught on camera and seen by a whole crew of people on set in the best case scenario, or millions of people across the world in the worst case. However, the only thing that might make it worth it is that your first kiss might be with a famous actor/actress everyone else can only dream of kissing. Let’s take a look at 10 celebs who had their first kiss on screen.
1. Kirsten Dunst
Kirsten Dunst has one of the most epic first kiss stories. Her first kiss was on screen with Brad Pitt in Interview With a Vampire. You’re probably thinking, well, how can any guy top that? The hilarious thing is that she was 11 at the time and thought it was absolutely disgusting. She’s probably the only person who can say that about Brad Pitt.
2. Dakota Fanning
Dakota Fanning had her first kiss while shooting the movie Sweet Home Alabama where she played a young version of Reese Witherspoon’s character. She was only 7 years old at the time. That has got to be one of the earliest first kisses ever, right? You’d think she would also think it was horrible, but she actually has mentioned in interviews that while she was very nervous, it became fun after a while. Only Dakota could think that way. That girl is way too mature for her age.
3. Selena Gomez
Selena Gomez got her first kiss when she was only 12 on the show The Suite Life of Zach and Cody. Her co-star was young Dylan Sprouse and she was so nervous she closed her eyes way too early, leaned in, and missed half of his face. Awkward. But then again, who’s first kiss isn’t awkward, be it on camera or not?
4. Ashley Benson
You might know her best from Pretty Little Liars but Ashley’s first kiss actually happened while she was on Days Of Our Lives. She was 15 and her co-star was in his 20’s. You’d think she’d be embarrassed to say anything, but she actually told him “hey, this is my first real kiss, so don’t be creepy”. Isn’t that just adorable?
5. Alia Shawkat
Alia Shawkat’s first kiss was while she was on the show Arrested Development and guess who was the first person she kissed? Michael Cera. For some reason we can’t help but think it was hella awkward. But she says it was just weird “It wasn’t like a makeout, you know what I mean? The way I describe it was that it’s like two fists hitting each other, boom, in and out.”
6. Victoria Justice
Victoria’s first kiss was not only on camera, but also in front of a live audience. She was on the show The Suite Life of Zach and Cody and she had to kiss Cole Sprouse. The funny thing is that it was the same show that Selena Gomez got her kiss on and it was Selena’s co-star’s twin brother that Victoria got to kiss.
7. Anna Chlumsky
You probably know Anna from the show Veep, but you probably also remember her from the movie My Girl in which she starred with Macaulay Culkin. That adorable kiss those kids shared was her first real kiss. It’s funny how when the movie came out that kiss won the Best Kiss Award at the MTV Movie Awards. She even made a joke about it when she was accepting it, she said “Gee, my first kiss and I get an award”.
8. Jesse Eisenberg
It’s about time we talk about boys who had their first kiss on screen. Jesse Eisenberg got his first kiss on screen with Jennifer Beals at the age of 19, while filming Roger Dodger. Yup, he was a late bloomer. And that whole scene is about his character being a virgin and only having had a couple of kisses. That must’ve been awkward, considering he never even kissed anyone before that.
9. Tyler Posey
The star of Teen Wolf actually had his first kiss on screen with Miley Cyrus on the show Doc. He was only 9. But the cute thing is that they did date at the time, and she was his first girlfriend from 9 to 11. And then they broke up. “I saw her three years later on TV, and freaked out! We’re still friends.” says Tyler.
10. Mila Kunis
We’ve kept the best for last. Mila’s first kiss was at the age of 15 with Ashton Kutcher on That 70s Show. If only they knew back then that they would eventually end up together. And even though back then they didn’t have any romantic feelings for each other, they can still look back at their first kiss, cause it’s forever immortalized on screen.
