30 Awkward Celebrity First Kiss Stories
The first kiss is always special. And you know what, everybody recalls their first kiss! Some first kiss experiences are good and others are just plain awkward. Most of the times it is the latter. But, whatever be the case, there is always an interesting story behind the kiss. Humor always becomes the savior when the kiss does not weave the magic you expected in the first place.
Here’s a list of celebrities who shared the most romantic and most embarrassing details of their first kiss stories. Hopefully, these anecdotes will make you feel better because, hey everybody’s human and all of us make mistakes –
1. Ashley Rickards
Ashley Rickards from Awkward had an almost fatal experience when she kissed for the first time. She planted her first smooch when she was all of 14. It was quite a traumatic experience for her, because she was quoted as saying to Seventeen Magazine, “I literally thought I was going to die because he suffocated me with his tongue.” Gross!
2. Avan Jogia
Canadian-British performer, Avan Jogia is a versatile bloke. The first time when he kissed, he was in middle school. Skipping gym classes, he was hanging out with the girl he liked. All this action was happening in the bleachers above the gym. “You’d have to crawl up this small space to get there…I spent a lot of time up there,” Jogia said. Wow!
3. Beau Mirchoff
Beau was nervous, but that’s because he was all of 10 years. Finding confidence in birds’ chirping, he planted “a sloppy kiss on her poor, poor lips”. By her, we mean his crush, Lauren, who was also of the same age. “My apologies, Lauren,” he said to Seventeen Magazine.
4. Chloe Bridges
Chloe Bridges was just 16 years old when her first kissed happened. “I was like ’Oh my gosh, I’m going to be like the 40-Year-Old Virgin’,” Bridges confessed. She met a boy (in a choir) who was a few years older than her. They were hanging out together for quite some time and eventually they kissed.
5. Camila Cabello
Camila Cabello actually ran away from her first kiss. When a boy kissed her on the cheek, she just sprinted away. She was in elementary school at that time and we can’t blame her for that. In an interview, Camilla also admitted that she would still do the same today. Fortunately for Shawn Mendes, she found true love in him.
6. Charlize Theron
The boy came over to Charlize’s house and they watched Friday the 13th. They were supposed to kiss after the movie. “His name was Nicky. We were standing in the backyard and I’m like, you wanna do it, you wanna do it? Well, OK, then let’s do it. And we’re standing there arguing about it for so long, it was just awful. But then it was darkness, saliva, and tongue”. Gross!
7. Chris Wood
Chris Wood did not kiss anyone by his own choice. He was rather a victim to a forced one by an elementary school squad called “The Kissing Girls”. “They would find a boy to corner and they would kiss him and I was a victim in second grade,” Wood was heard saying this in an interview. We sincerely hope that the girl in question was a beautiful one. Otherwise, we sympathize with you, Chris!
8. Conor Maynard
The Can’t Say No singer, Conor Maynard kissed for the first time when he was only 13 years old. Being inexperienced in the kissing department, he says in his own words “I was so nervous that I was shaking,” Maynard admitted in a magazine interview. The girl never spoke to him again after that. We feel your pain, Conor!
9. Colton Haynes
Colton Haynes kissed for the very first time when he was in 5th grade. Haynes was quite a nerd back in school. He was an inexperienced kisser. It happened when he was playing Truth or Dare with his friends. According to Haynes “it was the sloppiest kiss”. We sincerely hope that Colton has worked up on his kissing, because girls swoon on seeing him.
10. Dove Cameron
Dove Cameron’s first kiss was with her Cloud Nine co-star, Luke Benward. Both of them were 17 at the time. The pair had to kiss for the first time during their audition. That was because the Disney Channel wanted to check their onscreen chemistry. Initially, she was cool about it but developed cold feet when she was about to do it.
11. Dakota Fanning
Fanning’s first kiss was on the set of Sweet Home Alabama. Unfortunately, it wasn’t a very memorable experience. Her kissing partner was all of 10 years. Here’s what she says about it, “In between each take, we would do the kiss, and then I would slowly turn away and wipe my mouth off so he couldn’t see.”
12. Ellen Wong
The Scott Pilgrim vs The World actress, Ellen Wong shared her first kiss story with the Seventeen Magazine. It happened when she was in middle school and was seeing one boy at the time and one day, when he was walking her home, he stopped her and said, “Close your eyes. I have something for you,” and he planted a peck on her lips.
13. Josh Hutcherson
Josh Hutcherson’s first kiss was happened he was only 11 years old and it happened on set. He had to do it in front of 50 people including his mom and dad. Man, that sounds so embarrassing! Hutcherson kissed on the set of Little Manhattan which he was filming in New York City. According to him, “It was the most non-real, non-intimate moment that I could possibly have my first kiss, I think.”
14. Justin Bieber
Bieber’s first kiss story ended in a failure. According to an interview given to E! Canada, Justin was quoted as saying, “It was kinda awkward … I was, like, 11 or 12. And I was on a snow hill and it was late and we were all cold and I was, like, with this girl and we were together and then I kissed her.”
15. Katie Findlay
Katie Findlay’s first kiss happened when she was 14 years old. She went on a date with the boy she liked, at the arcade. At the end of the date, he turned around to leave and then he stopped and kissed her “really, really fast, only half on my mouth, and then said, ‘I’ll see you tomorrow at school,’ and ran away”. Sigh, young love!
16. Katy Perry
Katy Perry kissed for the first time in sixth grade. This happened while she was playing “spin the bottle” with friends. When it was her turn to spin the bottle, the bottle stopped and pointed to her. “All of a sudden, I felt like there was a wet fish in my mouth,” she said. Kids do not know how to kiss, then why do they even kiss? Guess, curiosity gets the best of them.
17. Louis Tomlinson
Louis Tomlinson, former member of the boy band One Direction said in an interview to Popstar! Magazine that he had kissed for the very first time when he was only 11 years old. He kissed a girl from the neighborhood, when he was in front of his house, while he was locked out. He certainly made good use of his time.
18. Leonardo DiCaprio
In an interview for Movieline Magazine in 1995, Leonardo DiCaprio shared the most embarrassing details of his first kiss. He was recorded as saying, “It was the most disgusting thing in my life. The girl injected about a pound of saliva into my mouth, and when I walked away, I had to spit it all out. It was awful.” It seems that Kate Winslet was a better kisser because Leonardo seemed comfortable kissing her while filming the movie, Titanic.
19. Lana Condor
The Vietnamese-origin American actress was in sixth grade when her first kiss happened. Unfortunately the boy who she kissed was way shorter than her, and this made things even weirder. She described the kiss as “a weird, textural experience” that she wouldn’t like to go through again. Pick guys your size, Lana.
20. Lindsey Gort
Lindsey Gort, the Carrie Diaries actress, found a perfect boy to have a kiss with. It was as early as in kindergarten. It was a love triangle with the boy, Lindsey and her best friend. The boy chose her and kissed her on the bus. This would have been a romantic story if the couple hadn’t broken up after some time.
21. Millie Bobby Brown
Millie Bobby Brown had her first kiss on set with her Stranger Things co-star, Finn Wolfhard. The pair kissed in the third Season of the show. More than the couple, the whole crew was pretty excited about the kiss and they all teased the couple.
22. Mila Kunis
Mila Kunis, the ‘70s Show kissed her husband, Ashton Kutcher, on set while shooting the prom scene. Kunis told W Magazine, “My first real kiss ever was with him on the show. Although I do think that in that episode I went home with someone else. We don’t talk about that part.” This kiss really connected them for life.
23. Nick Jonas
Nick Jonas’s first kiss was with his then girlfriend, Miley Cyrus. Both of them were working for Disney at that time. In an interview for BBC Radio, Nick confessed that the first kiss happened in front of the California Pizza Kitchen. He also admitted that he had had an onion pizza just before the kiss. Yuck!
24. Noah Centineo
Noah was 15 years old when he had his very first kiss. During a dance convention, he spotted an extremely cute dancer. He decided to come up to her and ask her out. After a romantic date in the movie theater, he walked her up to her hotel room and gave her a “goodnight kiss”. Doesn’t that sound awesome?
Rihanna’s first kiss happened when she was in high school. According to her, “it was the worst thing, ever”. She was a bit inexperienced and the boy was no expert either, but the saliva he “dumped” into her mouth made the experience more traumatic. She couldn’t kiss anybody else for a long time after that.
26. Selena Gomez
When Selena was guest-starring on The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, she had her very first kisswith the co-star, Dylan Sprouse. Being a 12-year-old and inexperienced, she leaned in and having her eyes closed, missed half of his lip. But that’s about it. After all, what more do you expect from two pre-teens?
27. Shawn Mendes
Shawn Mendes’ first kiss story happened when he was in 8th grade. Shawn and the girl kissed briefly, just for a few moments. But the word spread like wild fire and everyone in school made a huge deal about it. In middle school, there is not much action and kissing is supposed to be big.
28. Tyler Posey
Tyler Posey kissed Miley Cyrus for the very first time. That time he was only 9 years old. Cyrus was Posey’s first ever girlfriend. They met in Toronto while he was shooting the medical drama, Doc with Miley’s father, Billy Ray. “We were so damn young. I would get excited when we would hold hands,” he said to the Daily Mail. They broke up when they were 11.
29. Taylor Lautner
The Twilight Saga star Taylor Lautner, smooched “a random girl” for the first time in junior high. He had a thing with her when both of them were in junior high. She was the one whom he lost his lip virginity to. Well, who ever the random girl was, she certainly managed to hook the hot hunk for quite some time.
30. Zayn Malik
British singer, Zayn Malik, kissed for the first time when he was all of 13 years. He shared his first kiss story with Twist Magazine. He was about 9 or 10 years old at the time. The girl was three to four inches taller than him. Zayn said, “I had to get a brick and put it up against the wall and stand on it to give her a kiss because I couldn’t reach her face.” That is a cute story! And Zayn has grown taller too.
