How did your first kiss go? Whether it was perfectly planned or happened in the middle of a game of Truth or Dare, at least it wasn’t in front of a director on a film set. The A-list were just as nervous as us when it came to first kisses, you know – here are their aww (or awkward) stories.
Millie Bobby Brown
Speaking to Interview magazine, Millie Bobby Brown revealed that her on-screen smooch with Finn Wolfhard was actually her first; ‘Yeah, I did have to kiss Finn. At the end of the day, it’s only acting, and it’s something you have to do, and I would do anything for the show. I cut my hair, I kissed Finn. It was definitely strange. It was, like, my first kiss, so it was kind of weird. But then, like, when I’d done it, I thought, ‘Wow. It makes sense for the storyline.’’
Nick spilled to Radio 1 that his first kiss was with none other than ex-girlfriend Miley Cyrus, back in 2006: ‘I kissed her outside of California Pizza Kitchen in Hollywood — very romantic. I’d just had a pizza that had onions all over it. I’m sure that my breath smelled terrible’. Yum.
Kendall’s first kiss was actually in a game of Truth or Dare, with a lucky boy named Chad Wilcox: ‘I was with one of my friends from elementary school, Jessica. The kiss was with a kid I had THE biggest crush on! I was obsessed. Jessica actually did, too, haha. Kylie was so nosy, we ended up in my bathroom because it was the only room with a lock! Jessica and I didn't want to do it in front of each other so Chad and I went in the shower behind the curtain’.
We all remember Cruel Intentions, right?! Well, Selma Blair credits 'the beautiful and good' Sarah Michelle Gellar for her first girl kiss (on screen, no less). Selma also shouted out Sarah Michelle's husband, Freddie Prinze Jr., for being the being 'first husband I kissed onscreen'.
Zayn’s first smooch happened when he was 13: ‘I was really short and she was really tall, so I had to put a brick against the wall and stand on it to reach her face’.
Having your first kiss with Brad Pitt might seem pretty exciting to us, but according to Kirsten, ‘it was just a peck. He had this long hair. He was just a hippie-ish cool dude. Everyone at the time was 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’.
Ed describes his first kiss (with tongues, FYI) as ‘very awkward and wet. I think if you watched a lot of One Tree Hill or The OC your first kiss with tongue would probably be on point because you'd studied it, but I hadn't seen any of those programmes’.
Of course Taylor Sift would end up dating her first kiss for a year… 'I was 15. I was one of the last of my friends to ever kiss a guy. It wasn't a bad kiss. I think it was cute’.
Unsurprisingly, Harry’s first snog was quite young at 11 years old: ‘I was in my house with my best friend and this girl and her friend. We were just watching a film and then we kissed. I think I pretended I'd kissed someone before because it was cooler’.
As much as we wish Biebs’ first peck was with Selena (the best of his life, apparently), his first kiss was ‘kinda awkward. I was, 11 or 12. I was on a snow hill and it was late, we were all cold, I was with this girl and I kissed her’. Although Justin did also tell another version of his first smooch, where the first person in his friendship group to kiss a girl at the school dance got $10…
This might just be the sweetest first kiss story we’ve ever heard. In an interview, Mila spilled ‘my first real kiss ever was with [Ashton] on the show. 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’. Aww!
Jessica Alba used her first kiss for her own gain, sharing a smacker with a boy on her neighbourhood baseball team in the hope that she’d get a spot. She was 7 years old.
Ever the actress, Charlie Theron’s first kiss was carefully scripted: ‘He had braces. We were in the backyard ... We just had watched Friday the 13th. What a real romance movie! So we were just standing there because it was so planned. Like okay, you're gonna come over, watch a movie, then we kiss. It was just awful. Darkness, saliva and tongue’.
Diane Kruger’s first kiss was right here in the UK, where she was an exchange student: ‘He was a much older boy, like three years older. I was 13. I was so shocked that I immediately broke up with him’.
In typical primary school fashion, Reese’s first smooch crushed her dreams with a playground insult: ‘I thought I was in love with a boy named Graham. So we kissed. Then he broke my heart and told everybody that I was flat-chested and that's why he didn't like me anymore’. Ouch!
Awkward… these celebrity first dates prove that the A-list are just as ‘normal’ as us, too!
