8 Celebrities Reveal Their First On-Screen Kiss

Published On January 6, 2015 » 2182 Views» By Z-rowe »


We all remember our first kiss. I was 12-years-old and playing an intense game of “Truth or Dare?” with some friends. We all had been eating junk food most of the night, so when our lips made contact, it tasted like an explosion of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos and French onion dip. It was the most delicious kiss I have ever had.

But enough about me. Let’s talk about your favorite celebrities. Check out the list down below to get all the juicy details.



No. 8 – Daniel Radcliffe

Daniel Radcliffe didn’t receive his first on-screen kiss until the fifth Harry Potter film. And Radcliffe admitted the long wait made him even more nervous. He also said that it took several takes to get it right, which actually helped him get over his nerves. After a few takes, Radcliffe said that “it was sort of like any other scene, which is never really what people want to hear. It doesn’t really feel any different, because you are still acting.”



No. 7 – Jesse Eisenberg

The talented 31-year-old actor has locked lips with several women now, including Kristen Stewart and Emma Stone. But back in 2002, when Jesse was just 18-years-old, he received his first on-screen (and real life) kiss. He shared the special moment with Jennifer Beals while filming Roger Dodger. And according to an old report from the Chicago Tribune, Jennifer had no idea it was Eisenberg’s first kiss in real life.

“That’s interesting. Well, he — he did a good job.” She said.



No. 6 – Dakota Fanning

Technically, Dakota Fanning’s first on-screen kiss was with Thomas Curtis in 2002’s Sweet Home Alabama. She was just 7-years-old at the time, and she doesn’t really count it as her first on-screen kiss because it was just a little peck. Her first real kiss was shared with Kristen Stewart in The Runaways. And Fanning admitted she was happy to share the moment with Stewart: “It’s out of the way, and it was with my friend and a girl—no pressure.”



No. 5 – Alia Shawkat

Anything involving Michael Cera is going to be a little awkward. During an interview, Shawkat admitted that a kiss she shared on the Arrested Development set was her first on-screen and real life kiss. Experiencing your first kiss in front of a bunch of people with cameras sounds awkward enough, but she also revealed that her Dad was on set watching. And then you can’t forget that her character (Maeby) and Cera’s character (George Michael) are non-biological cousins, though, at the time of their first kiss they still believed they were actually related.



No. 4 – Kirsten Dunst

Can you guess who Kirsten Dunst shared her first on-screen kiss with? Brad Pitt. That’s right, back in 1994 a 12-year-old Dunst kissed Pitt during, Interview With The Vampire. She admits that kissing Brad Pitt made her popular with her friends; however, she called the experience disgusting.

“Everyone at the time as like, ‘You’re so lucky you kissed Brad Pitt,’ but I thought it was disgusting, I didn’t kiss anyone else until I was 16. I think. I was a late bloomer.”


No. 3 – Aaron Paul

I don’t know about you, but I can’t look at Aaron Paul without thinking about Breaking Bad. But long before we were introduced to the greatest show on television, the 35-year-old actor got his big break on a little show called Beverly Hills, 90210. During his appearance on the show, Paul had his first on-screen kiss during a terrible production of Romeo & Juliet.

No. 2 – Mila Kunis

As you all know, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are a real life couple now. The 31-year-old actress gave birth to their first child together in October, 2014. But before they decided to give it a try in real life, Mila and Ashton’s characters on That ’70s Show had an on-off relationship.

Back in 2001, Kunis told People that Ashton Kutcher was her first kiss. She also admitted to being very nervous, because she had a huge crush on him: “I was like, ‘Oh, he’s so cute, it’s the Calvin Klein model!’ … Then I was like, ‘I have to kiss him?’ I was so nervous and uncomfortable. I had the biggest crush on him.”



No. 1 – Josh Hutcherson

Just like Dakota Fanning, Josh Hutcherson technically shared his first on-screen kiss at a fairly young age. He was just 11-years-old when he had his first real life/on-screen kiss during the movie Little Manhattan. However, his first real big kiss came during the first Hunger Games film. He had the privilege of kissing Jennifer Lawrence, and unlike most of the celebrities on this list, he’s certainly not complaining.

“I haven’t had any bad ones. You’re my first real big kiss in a movie.” He told Lawrence during an interview with CNN.
