Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller – The Spectacular Now
The Spectacular Now is a 2013 movie about romance and drama that aired in the cinemas. Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller play the characterizations of Aimee Finicky and Sutter Keely. Well, let’s talk about the kissing scene in the film. A few weeks after the movie was released, Shailene Woodley revealed that she felt very uncomfortable during her kissing scene, but not because of the actor with whom she did it-it was because of what the actor took that time. Miles Teller took some herbal supplements to energize himself on the set during the filming, and there was nothing wrong with that reason-what was wrong was the unpleasant taste of the supplements. Shailene Woodley said that her kissing scene was a truly painful experience for her as she could taste Miles Teller’s mouth herbal supplement.
Steve Carell and Dwayne Johnson – Get Smart
It’s no joke to work in the film industry. Actors and actresses, for the most part, need to face new challenges for a scene in a movie, an interview, and other things they do in front of the camera. The same thing happened with the Get Smart cast. It’s a comedy with an action mix that came out in 2008. Well, as we said, in the acting industry, nothing is impossible-Steve Carell (Maxwell Smart), and Dwayne Johnson (Agent 23) had a kissing scene. Actors and actresses kissing the same sex are not new to people now, particularly in a comedy movie, but Dwayne had something to say about his experience of kissing Steve. In an interview, he shared that kissing his co-star, Steve Carell felt very weird. Carell’s lips were also described as the bottom of a cat’s paw, and his tongue felt like clay. They were both straight, after all, so we couldn’t blame them for feeling weird.
Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze – Dirty Dancing
The romantic dance-themed movie, Dirty Dancing, was aired in the movie theater in 1987. Jennifer Grey (Frances “Baby” Houseman) and Patrick Swayze (Johnny Castle) were the protagonists of the film. They both had great chemistry, but it seemed that they didn’t feel it at all, and the audience and everyone else was the only ones to feel their chemistry. Weeks after the release of Dirty Dancing, Patrick Swayze revealed that working with Jennifer Grey was something he didn’t like. He said that the actress had overflowing emotions that destroyed some of the scenes. Maybe that’s why they weren’t fond of their kissing scene-they could kiss everyone and anyone but each other.
Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst – Spider-Man
The iconic Spider-man is a movie that features fantasy and action. It was launched in 2002. Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst respectively played characters Spider-Man and Mary Jane Watson. The kissing scene that took place in this film was one of the greatest kissing scenes ever in film history-well, maybe for the audience. Despite the romantic and cool effect that the upside-down kissing scene brought to people, Tobey Maguire felt nothing but uneasiness. He revealed that he felt very uneasy during the kissing scene, but that it wasn’t because of the actress. He said that, apart from the fact that his body turned upside down as he was kissing Kirsten Dunst, the rainwater that kept filling up his nose was very unpleasant.
Kate Hudson and Dane Cook – My Best Friend’s Girl
The film in 2008, My Best Friend’s Girl, is a Rom-com with Kate Hudson (Alexis) and Dane Cook (Tank) as the main cast. Filming movies and tv shows are ways in which actors, actresses, and other people who work in the industry bond and get to know one another. Dane Cook got to know his co-star Kate Hudson during the making of this film. He knew her as an extremely energetic actress who just loves to play around and have fun in the set. Cook shared his experience of kissing Kate Hudson in an interview that happened in 2014 and said it wasn’t great. First, he had a disclaimer that he had nothing against the actress. He even said the reason why he didn’t like their kissing scene in a funny and kidding way — before filming the kissing scene, Hudson ate a few onions that Cook could tell perfectly because he tasted it the whole time they were kissing.
Kirsten Dunst and Brad Pitt – Interview with the Vampire
Interview with the Vampire is a 1994 film featuring horror and romance. Kirsten Dunst and Brad Pitt played the leading roles, Claudia and Louis de Pointe du Lac. Interview with the Vampire had a kissing scene, being a romantic movie, and the actress had to say something about it. She said that although not everyone could do a kissing scene with Brad Pitt, she felt very uncomfortable. Brad Pitt was 31 years old when he made the film, and Kirsten Dunst was only 12 years old. The huge difference in age was the concern of the actress. So now you know how young and old they were, what do you think?
Emma Watson and Rupert Grint – Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2
Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows Part 2 is a fantasy movie that was broadcast in 2011. The characters who had a kissing scene were the main characters of Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) and Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley). Their kissing scene was just as natural as it turned out to be. People, especially fans, loved it, but they didn’t know what was going on during the kissing scene. Months after the film was launched, it turned out that Emma Watson and Rupert Grint were not very fond of each other and had a difficult time. The director did not know what was going on between the two of them, but they certainly knew they had no chemistry. The kissing scene was great, however, because of the great performance of the actor and actress-kudos to both of them for their professionalism!
Vanessa Hudgens and James Franco – Spring Breakers
The 2012 movie, Spring Breakers, is a combination of drama and crime. There was a scene where Vanessa Hudgens, playing the character of Candy, and James Franco, playing the character of Alien, had to kiss. Their scene was pretty good, as shown in the film, but Vanessa Hudgens had something else to say. Vanessa had the chance to share her kissing experience with James Franco in a 2013 Yahoo Movies interview. She said the kissing scene didn’t feel anything but uncomfortable. She didn’t have any specific reasons why she didn’t like to have a kissing scene with the actor, but she said she would kiss anyone besides James Franco, even someone of the same sex.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Virginie Ledoyen – The Beach
Supporters and fans of DiCaprio might be surprised to see their famous idol on the list. The Beach is a drama slash adventure film that was released in 2000. Leonardo DiCaprio and Virginie Ledoyen respectively played the main roles of Richard and Francoise. Their kissing scene appeared to be one of the most famous kissing scenes in the industry, but it did not satisfy Virginie Ledoyen. She shared her kissing experience with Leonardo DiCaprio, a very well-known actor. Initially, before kissing the actor, she felt a mixture of excitement and nervousness, but when they started kissing, all her excitement vanished. She claimed that something was missing from Leonardo’s kisses, and she said it wasn’t passionate enough.
Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan – 50 Shades of Grey
Let’s talk about one of the most sensual films ever made in the movie industry. The 50 Shades of Grey is a romantic and dramatic film that was shown in cinemas in 2015. I know it might be surprising to see the film and its leading roles on the list because the film was packed with very intimate and passionate scenes, so what went wrong? Several weeks after the premiere of the film, it was shown that Dakota Johnson (Anastasia Steele) and Jamie Dornan (Christian Grey) did not feel any chemistry on the set. However, a lot of people, especially their fans, loved how good they looked. Dornan shared his experience of all the discomfort that Dakota and he experienced when intimate scenes were shot. Well, that just means one thing: they’re both great actors, because the sexy scenes were great, despite all the uneasiness and lack of chemistry they felt.
Sharon Stone and William Baldwin – Sliver
Silver is a film that focuses on a mix of thriller and romance. It was released in the movie theaters in 1993. Sharon Stone and William Baldwin, respectively, performed the leading roles of Carly Norris and Zeke Hawkins. The film had a kissing scene with the two actors. Well, it wasn’t the first time people saw Sharon Stone share an intimate scene with someone – she was pretty good, and she was always on the point of acting. It’s evident, then, that William Baldwin made the flaw. A few months after the film was launched, Sharon Stone had the chance to share the experience of kissing William Baldwin with the camera. She said that as soon as the scene was cut, she immediately looked for a mouthwash, and there was something worse than that—Baldwin accidentally bit the actress’ tongue while they were kissing.
Claire Danes and Leonardo DiCaprio – Romeo + Juliet
Again, for the second time, Leonardo DiCaprio is on this list; what’s wrong this time? Romeo+Juliet is a romantic and dramatic box office success that makes people, especially lovers, very emotional. The actors in Romeo and Juliet’s roles were none other than Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes. The kissing scene was perfect, although the two of them had problems with each other. It was found that Claire Danes and Leonardo DiCaprio were not good friends, despite their adorable chemistry in front of the cameras. DiCaprio said that he could no longer take the actress’s attitude of being too moralistic. In contrast, Danes said he was a dealbreaker seeing the ridiculous behavior of the actor off the camera. Well, huge props to them, as they showed their professionalism in front of the cameras – their great performance made Romeo+Juliet a hit.
Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson – Water For Elephants
Water for Elephants is a romantic drama that was launched in theaters in 2011. Reese Witherspoon (Marlena Rosenbluth) and Robert Pattinson (Jacob Jankowski) played the leading roles. In the film, you could see a very passionate and sweet kissing scene with the two actors – people and their fans, in particular, praised for that. Little did they all know; they were both in an unpleasant state during the shooting of the scene. Weeks after the film premiere, it became clear that Reese Witherspoon was a little upset about the scene, but that it wasn’t because of Robert Pattinson himself. It was because of the condition of the actor at the time, she said.Pattinson had a cold when they filmed the kissing scene, which is why his nose was full of mucus. For sure, this film and its leading roles would not be on this list if Pattinson didn’t suffer from the cold that time.
Alyson Hannigan and Jason Segel – How I Met Your Mother
Big cheers for Lily Aldrin and Marshall Eriksen! They are among the main characters of the TV show How I Met Your Mother. Alyson Hannigan played the role of Lily, the girlfriend, and eventually Marshall’s wife, Jason Segel. In the series, being a couple has given them a lot of kissing scenes for more than a decade. In an interview, Alyson shared her opinion about the kissing of Jason Segel. She said she was kind of disgusted and uncomfortable at first because when she started filming How I Met Your Mother, Segel was still very fond of smoking. She could taste the nicotine as they were kissing. The good thing was that Alyson Hannigan did not keep it on her own and confronted the actor with all the smoking and kissing scenes. That constructive criticism has led Jason Segel to quit smoking.
Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried – Jennifer’s Body
Working in the acting industry, as I said before, always means leaving your comfort zone. Films, interviews, and TV shows would push the actors to do unusual things, and so did Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfriend. Jennifer’s Body, the horror-comedy film, had a kissing scene featuring the actresses. Interviews revealed that they both felt strange and awkward as they kissed during the filming of the scene. Although they both felt uncomfortable at the time, the kiss turned out to be quite nice-we must commend their professionalism and their great acting abilities.
Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth – The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1

He was disgusted and claimed that the actress had a nasty breath during the kissing scene.
Angelina Jolie and James McAvoy – Wanted
Wanted is an action slash thriller that was released in 2008. The main roles of Fox and Wesley Gibson were played by Angelina Jolie and James McAvoy, respectively. The reason they made it on this list wasn’t because of an awful or dreadful experience. It was because it all happened in a blink of an eye. In an interview, James McAvoy had the chance to share his opinion on the kissing scene with Angelina Jolie. He said everything was great, except that they didn’t have an hour to get to know each other or talk before filming the scene. The kissing scene for him was so sudden, but everything was fine.
Carey Mulligan and Johnny Depp – Public Enemies
It seems like we have someone here going gaga! Public Enemy is a movie that features a crime with a bit of drama. It was aired in the movie theaters in 2019. Although the scene did not make it to the final editing of the film, Carey Mulligan (Carol Slayman) filmed a kissing scene with Johnny Depp (John Dillinger). It was because the scene didn’t look natural that they did not show their kissing scene in the movie. The acting was awful, and in Carey Mulligan’s interview, she revealed that she had a slight crush — the idea of kissing him for a film shook her senses and made her completely tense.
Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper – Silver Linings Playbook
This is the second time that Jennifer Lawrence has been on the list. Don’t worry, Lawrence’s fans and supporters out there, because she wasn’t the one who ruined the kiss. In 2012, Silver Linings Playbook was released as a film that showed romance and drama at the same time. Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper played leading roles in the film, Tiffany and Pat Solitano. It wasn’t surprising, as the main characters in a romantic movie, that they had to film a kissing scene together.

For the record, Lawrence never liked to share kissing scenes with someone – she said every time she had to film one, she felt uncomfortable.
Jennifer Aniston and Alec Baldwin – 30 Rock
30 Rock is a comedy show, with seven amazing seasons.One of the main characters of the TV series is Jack Donaghy, played by Alec Baldwin.

Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman – Australia
Australia is a 2008 movie featuring a mixture of romance and adventure. The main characters in the movie were Hugh Jackman, who played Drover’s character, and Nicole Kidman, who played Lady Sarah Ashley’s character. They filmed together a kissing scene and admitted that they were both uneasy. It was revealed, not because they were disgusting or anything, that they were uncomfortable-because they were married.

That’s why, when they met on the first day of the shooting, they decided to set certain limitations and guidelines when filming an intimate scene.
Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie – The Tourist
Celebrities who starred in The Tourist-The 2010 action slash thriller are next on the list. Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie played the leading roles of Frank Tupelo and Chiara Manzoni. There was a time when the actors had to film together with a kissing scene. The kissing scene was great and very natural in the final editing of the film. But they both had something to say about their kissing experiences. Johnny Depp said that he was uncomfortable kissing Jolie. He didn’t like the attitude of the actress, and they weren’t close friends. Angelina Jolie, however, revealed that the actor’s kissing had been a terrible experience; he had terrible breath on the set, and that disgusted her.
Helena Bonham Carter and Woody Allen – Mighty Aphrodite
Mighty Aphrodite is a fantasy and comedy film that was shown in movies in mid-1995. Helena Bonham Carter and Woody Allen played the leading roles in the film. If you’ve already seen the movie, you’ve also seen the kissing scene of the two of them. You might think they’re as comfortable since the kissing scene looked natural, but you’re wrong. Weeks after the premiere, Helena Bonham Carter found it uncomfortable to film Allen’s kissing scene, especially since she saw her behavior at work. She claimed that Woody Allen had only kept imposing what the scene was and had not allowed her to share her thoughts on it.

Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner – The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is a movie that shows romance and fantasy all at once. It was shown in movie theaters in 2010 and had a few intimate scenes as usual. Kristen Stewart, who portrayed Bella Swan, and Taylor Lautner, who portrayed Jacob Black, required the scene of a passionate kissing scene together. Even though Kristen Stewart had already admitted that shooting scenes like this had always been uncomfortable for her, her kissing scene with Lautner was far more uncomfortable and strange compared to all the intimate scenes she had already filmed. It was that Kristen Stewart was still in a relationship with Robert Pattinson, who was also on the set because he played the character of Edward Cullen, which made the actors feel more uneasy.
Julia Roberts and Nick Nolte – I Love Trouble
I Love Trouble is a romantic comedy movie that came out in the middle of 1994. The producers and directors chose Julia Roberts and Nick Nolte, respectively, to play the starring roles of Sabrina Peterson and Peter Brackett. Even after their excellent acting skills, it seemed that it was difficult for everyone behind the movie to film the kissing scenes of Robert and Nolte. Both were never in good terms of the camera. They always hated and loathed one another. That’s why they filmed the kissing scenes individually and had doubles to portray each other. Huge props to the editing team to make this possible-the movie turned out to be great!
Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt – Passengers
I’m willing to bet that saying didn’t say that fourth time’s a charm – this is the fourth appearance of Jennifer Lawrence on the list, so what’s the matter this time? Well, here we go. Passenger is a 2016 film featuring romance and science fiction at the same time. Jennifer Lawrence played Aurora Lane’s character, as Chris Pratt played Jim Preston’s character. They had time to film a kissing scene together, and it turned out fine. Weeks after the film premiered, however, Lawrence revealed she felt uncomfortable with the kissing scene, but it wasn’t because of the actor she was doing it with. What bothered her was the fact that at that time, Christ Pratt was already a married man, so she couldn’t stop feeling uncomfortable doing it with him. She shared she had to even drink a lot of alcohol and get drunk just to get the idea out of her mind and finish filming the scene.
Harrison Ford and Sean Young – Blade Runner
Blade Runner is a film that was released in mid-1982. It’s a mixture of science fiction and thriller. Harrison Ford and Sean Young played the leading roles in the film, Rick Deckard and Rachael respectively. As they say, working in the acting industry requires people to get out of their comfort zone, and I suppose kissing someone you hate is a way out of your comfort zone. That’s what happened to the film’s main characters, both of whom hated each other on and off cameras, but they had to film a kissing scene together. In any case, Ford and Young were great actors, and the kissing scene became very natural and passionate. However, in an interview that took place a few weeks after the film was aired in the movies, Sean Young revealed that kissing him was a horrible experience because of his bothersome facial hair.
Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams – The Notebook

Every film scene, especially the kissing scene, was on the point. People were amazed by the overflowing chemistry of Gosling and McAdams. Little did they all know that filming a kissing scene together made the actors very uncomfortable because they weren’t on good terms in real life and the off cameras. Huge respect for their professionalism, both of which looked very genuine throughout the film!

Shortly after Lindsay Lohan learned that she was about to shoot a kissing scene with Charlie Sheen, she imposed several guidelines and limitations on both of them, especially Sheen, as they filmed the kissing scene. That was normal, and Charlie agreed immediately, but what surprised Charlie was the contract to confirm that they were not suffering from colds and other infectious diseases. The actor felt a bit off the deal, but he still signed it. Even though what Lohan did was pretty offensive, Sheen just let it go and had a good relationship with the actress — he even helped her pay her taxes.
Julia Roberts and Denzel Washington – The Pelican Brief
The thriller that appeared in the cinema in 1993 was The Pelican Brief. Julia Roberts and Denzel Washinton both were the leading roles in the film, Darby Shaw and Gray Grantham. Both of them almost shot a kissing scene. It was because Denzel Washington chose to adhere to his principles and morality of life that the word “almost” appeared in the previous sentence. And although Julia Robert’s beauty had already captured millions of hearts, he remained firmly committed to his preference for seeing and kissing a woman of color. As we all see, Roberts is white, and Washington just wanted to break the stigma, saying that beauty could only be seen in white people. When she heard the reason, Julia Roberts immediately understood the sentiments of the actor. Still, she remained sad because she was the one who pushed the directors and producers to cast Washington in the movie.
Martin Lawrence and Tisha Campbell – Martin

Tisha Campbell, who played the part of Gina Waters Payne, and Martin Lawrence, who played the role of Martin Payne, were the main casts of this show. The actors had to participate in several kissing scenes since they were a married couple in front of the cameras. Everything was fine until the fifth season, and Tisha Campbell sued Martin Lawrence.

Most modern family fans continued to look for a scene that would allow Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson to kiss-they expressed this sentiment through different social media sites. Sadly, Stonestreet has already made it clear to fans that they would not be able to do this because some people who watched the TV show may feel uncomfortable watching it.
Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren – The Mosquito Coast
Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren starred at The Mosquito Coast in 1986. The movie is all about drama and adventure. The actors portrayed Allie Fox and Mother Fox’s roles.

One year after the movie, Helen Mirren had the chance to share her experience of kissing the actor. it was revealed that she had no great experience because she wasn’t satisfied by the way Harrison Ford kissed her. Well, you really couldn’t have anything.
James Franco and Sienna Miller – Camille

James Franco and Sienna Miller, respectively, portrayed the main and lead roles of Silas and Camille Foster. The actors were not surprised to film a kissing scene, as the main character of a romance. Both had no problem with each other, which helped them film the kissing scene with ease. James Franco shared his opinions on the kissing scene in the interview, which he shared with Sienna Miller several weeks after the movie’s premiere. He said it was kind of underwhelming because he didn’t feel any heat and intense, but everything was all right other than that.
Selena Gomez and Dylan Sprouse – The Suite Life of Zack and Cody
The Suite Life of Zack & Cody is a TV show with a total of three amazing seasons. Dylan Sprouse is one of the leading characters who played the role of Zack Martin. If you were looking at the cast of The Suite Life of Zack & Cody, Selena Gomez wouldn’t be found because she just appeared in one of its episodes. It just happened that Dylan Sprouse had to share a kissing scene with her in the episode where she appeared briefly. Selena eventually revealed during an interview that her kissing scene was very uneasy since she not only kissed someone in front of cameras but also kissed someone for the very first time in real life, lips to lips. She was embarrassed as she shared the story of how the scene was filmed-she didn’t know how to kiss someone, so she just closed her eyes and put her face closer to Dylan’s, which caused her to miss half of the actor’s lips and ended up kissing his chin. Anyway, there’s always a first time for everyone!
Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom – Pirates of the Caribbean
Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom played the roles of Elizabeth Swann. In the movie series, Pirates of the Caribbean, Keira Knightley, and Orlando Bloom played the roles of Elizabeth Swann and Will Turner. Well, before filming a kissing scene with Bloom, Keira had to kiss Johnny Depp (Captain Jack Sparrow). It appeared, however, that Keira Knightley only liked the scene she shared with Depp and not that she shared with Orlando Bloom, because she was asked to talk about kissing both actors in an interview hosted by InStyle and shared only the experience with Kissing Johnny Depp. Well, it was like an indirect way to say that Orlando Bloom kissing was not a wonderful experience. Did the bars set by Johnny Depp too high? Was Orlando Bloom a terrible kisser? We would never know.

Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher – No Strings Attached
The 2011 film, No Strings Attached, featured romance and comedy at the same time. Natalie Portman was the one who portrayed the female lead character, Emma, as Ashton Kutcher was the one who played the male lead character, Adam. Kissing scenes should not be surprising, as they are the leading role in a romantic movie. It seemed, however, that Natalie Portman saw the act of kissing as a special gesture. She felt so uncomfortable kissing the actor because she thought that people should only kiss the people they loved. Indeed, as they always say, working in the industry is going to get actors and actresses out of their comfort zone – that’s why Portman had to be professional and get on with the flow.
Debra Winger and Richard Gere – An Officer and a Gentleman
In 1982, in Romance and Drama, Debra Winger and Richard Gere portrayed the roles of Paula Pokrifki and Zack Mayo, An Officer and a Gentleman. The entire cast looked perfect, and the actors seemed very suited to the roles assigned to them. Everything went well in the set until Debra Winger found out that she had to film a kissing scene with Richard Gere, her co-star. It wasn’t like the actor with whom she was going to do it disgusted her; she just really respected the act of kissing and felt uncomfortable with the idea of simply kissing someone for entertainment. The actress freaked out and even called the director an animal and her co-star a brick wall.
Jennifer Lawrence and Christian Bale – American Hustle

Little did they all know, Jennifer Lawrence was having some issues with the scene. Weeks after the film was released, Lawrence had the chance to share her kissing Christian Bale experience. She said nothing disgusting but said that she was bothered by the actor’s height, which was very offensive. By the way, this is the fifth appearance of Jennifer Lawrence on the list.
Jason Lee and Shannen Doherty – Mallrats

There was a time when the two had to kiss each other for a scene, and for Jason Lee, it was a bummer. It was revealed that he didn’t like the attitude of Shannen Doherty ever since the filming began-he didn’t like anything about her. He even shared his sentiments about working with the Mallrats cast and said he had a challenging time working with Doherty. It’s tough to shoot a kissing scene with someone you don’t really like, so kudos to the actor’s professionalism and great acting skills-the kissing scene turned out to be fine.
Kevin Hart – Any Man on Man Scene
Kevin Hart is a well-known American comedian, actor, and producer. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Central Intelligence, Jumanji: The Next Level and The Upside are some of the blockbuster movies he starred in. The comedian had already mastered different roles in different films. But he admitted that one thing he could never do. He opened up and talked about his sentiments about kissing or portraying homosexual roles in films. He said that he was not homophobic; he just did not know if he could justify roles to the extent that he justified the roles he played already. He made it clear to the LGBT community in particular.
Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder – Vampire Diaries
Vampire Diaries is a horror-themed TV show that has a total of eight seasons. The female lead of the series was Nina Dobrev (Elena Gilbert, Katherine Pierce, and Amara), while Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) played the male lead. For those actors, it was effortless to film several kissing scenes, but not in the last season. If Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder had not broken down, the kissing scene which had to be filmed for season 8 could have been straightforward to shoot. There is no need to explain why these actors made a list. The shooting of that kissing scene for both of them was very uncomfortable.
Fawad Khan – Any Co-Star
Pakistani actor Fawad Khan was awarded numerous times because he was a great producer, model, screenwriter, singer, and, of course, a very talented actor. As a well-rounded person in the industry, he could represent different roles, but he had one request. He said that he could do anything for the industry, but it was an exception to kiss anyone in front of the cameras. He said that he always wanted and dreamed of a clean career and wanted to keep it as it was built-very wholesome.

She starred in different movies and TV shows such as Full House, Fuller House, Aurora Teagarden Mysteries, and Growing Pains.
