Sometimes, part of an actor’s job is getting down and dirty with a fellow actor for a steamy love scene.
Audiences love a good smooch, and it’s often easy to imagine that the actors filming such scenes are enjoying making out just as much as the characters they’re playing are.
However, this is not always the case. Sometimes, actors would rather play tonsil tennis with a dustbin full of dead fish than with some of the biggest stars in the world! Here are twenty times when some of your favorite actors really, REALLY did not want to kiss their co-stars. Pucker up!
Ryan Gosling & Rachel McAdams
Fans of The Notebook would never countenance the idea that stars Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling wouldn’t have been anything other than utterly delighted to make out with one another. The reality, however, is the two co-stars disliked one another intensely. Gosling was so disgusted with the idea of making out with McAdams that he even approached director Nick Cassavetes and said, “I can’t. I can’t do it with her. I’m just not getting anything from this.” Luckily, Cassavetes refused to replace McAdams, and the results spoke for themselves!
Harrison Ford & Sean Young
The love scene between Harrison Ford and Sean Young in Blade Runner was dubbed ‘the hate scene’ by crew members, and for very good reasons. Young was a notoriously difficult actress to get along with, and Ford has never exactly been a warm and cuddly character. The two hated one another on set, and it was a minor miracle that they agreed to kiss one another at all!
Jennifer Lawrence & Chris Pratt
There were rumors swirling around the set of 2016’s Passengers that stars Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt were more than good friends. This would have been OK were it not for the fact that Pratt was a married man at the time. Lawrence had huge reservations about fanning the rumor flames, and was really reluctant to kiss her co-star. “I got really, really drunk,” she said, explaining how she geared up for her love scene. “But then that led to more anxiety when I got home because I was like, ‘What have I done?’ I don’t know.’ And he was married. And it was going to be my first time kissing a married man, and guilt is the worst feeling in your stomach.” She was right to be worried. Pratt and his wife Anna Faris split up in 2017, and Lawrence was blamed for tearing the couple apart…
