Actors get paid to make-out with each other, and thanks to movie magic, it almost always looks sexy and romantic. However, that's not always the case. In fact, according to their co-stars, some of Hollywood's biggest names are some of the worst kissers.
While shooting the second Mission Impossible
film back in 2000, Thandie Newton
didn't exactly enjoy her make-out scenes with Tom Cruise
. "Kissing Tom Cruise was slightly icky and sort of wet
," Newton explained. "I'd really go home at the end of the day actually moaning about...how many times we had to do it."
Who is Virginie Ledoyen
you might ask? Well, she was Leonardo DiCaprio's The Beach co-star who had this rather unflattering thing to say about his skills
: "I think Leonardo is nice guy. But I don't want him as a lover. 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." Ouch.
Most men would love a shot at kissing Angelina Jolie. Well, James McAvoy had the opportunity on Wanted and walked away from the experience with less than a glowing recommendation. "I can tell you what it was like to kiss her on a film set. It was awkward, sweaty, and not very nice."
James FrancoJames Franco might not be a bad kisser, but he's definitely an undesirable kisser, at least in the eyes of Spring Breakers co-star Vanessa Hudgens. "I was just happy I had Ashley [Benson] because I was like, "Ugh, eww, I don't want to kiss James. ... I'd rather kiss a girl than a guy on camera," Hudgens said on her E! reality show. Well, Spring Breakers was a compromise, because she had to kiss both Benson and Franco in the hotel pool threesome scene.
Maybe it was the years of pent-up sexual frustration between their characters, but Daniel Radcliffe thought Emma Watson's go-for-it mentality was a little much for him
: "I was ambushed!
It was full on. It was incredible, I was not expecting that," Daniel Radcliffe said. “I always thought it was going to be this soft sensual sort of moment and suddenly there was this vigorous kissing happening to me. She is a bit of an animal.
