Why do we love a good love story? Because it’s always about the beginning of a romance. Every moment is exciting, electric and full of meaning. That’s also why we love a good on screen kiss. In real life, after being with someone for a while, a kiss becomes monotonous. It means, “hello,” “goodbye,” “sorry I messed up,” or “can we have sex again please?” But on screen, it usually means, “My body aches for you.” Who doesn’t love to see that?
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson in Breaking Dawn Part I
We love this couple because they’ve always been in their own little world, unaware of how their love affects anyone else. In fact, unaware of anyone else at all when they’re around each other. Their first kiss as husband and wife is no different as they fall into a full on make out session in front of all their friends and family. For nearly a minute. That’s a long time to be locking lips, but somehow—maybe it’s the fairyland setting—we keep watching.
Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart in Breaking Dawn Part I
Yup, Twilight makes it twice on this list. What is it about a sweet, tender kiss that can calm down even the most enraged ware wolf man, just about to go kill somebody? Who cares? We love to see it. Especially since we know poor Taylor has been waiting ages to smash faces with Bella.
Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling in Crazy Stupid Love
We’re all a bit envious that the magical world of cinema just ignores the obvious age gap between Ryan and Emma and lets them go at it on screen in a revenge-filled, wet t-shirt kiss.
Emma Watson and Rupert Grint in Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part II.
Basically, everybody almost just died. And we all know what an aphrodisiac the thought of mortality can be! Plus, we’ve loved watching Hermione and Ron blossom from little, squeaky voiced buds to total hotties on screen.
Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson in Hunger Games
You don’t have to send us a parachute full of meds to get us to kiss adorable Josh Hutcherson. But, since the kiss was fake for Jennifer’s character, we admire how real she made it look.
Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum in The Vow
Tragic plot aside, after being married to someone for years, it wouldn’t be the worst thing to get the chance to have a “first kiss” all over again. Especially coming from smoking hot-bodied and dreamy-faced Channing.
Reese Witherspoon and Chris Pine in This Means War
We loved seeing the usual good-girl Reese getting raunchy. As said by Reese herself, “I’m no gentleman.” And then she basically tore her clothes off.
Rachel Weisz and Simon Russell Beale in The Deep Blue Sea
Forbidden love. Depression era bar. Dramatic violin music. What’s not to love about this first kiss between a woman in a loveless marriage, and a sexy and troubled army pilot?
Leonardo Dicaprio and Kate Winslet in Titanic in 3D
We loved it the first time, and we loved it three times as much again when the film came out in 3D for what seemed like the blink of an eye. Do we think Kate’s sudden need for a kiss came from the fact that she was standing on a ledge over a gaping ocean? Doesn’t matter. We want to capture this moment in a bottle. And maybe stick a model ship in it.
Zac Efron and Taylor Schilling in The Lucky One
Gorgeous marine. Devastated and charming divorcee and single mother. This movie has all the makings of a deep, desperate first kiss. And the fact that it happens in a barn makes it all the hotter.
Robert Pattinson and Uma Thurman in Bel Ami
The ultimate cougar meets the ultimate young stallion when Robert’s character seduces Uma’s in an attempt to rise up the social ladder. Why does Robert always look so damn good pale?
Keira Knightley and Aaron-Taylor Johnson in Anna Karenina
We cried a little to see Jude Law depicted as unattractive, and to see Keira Knightley’s character cheating on him. But, we got over it when dashing Aaron-Taylor Johnson came in as a libido-charged soldier, proving to Anna that romantic love can still exist.
Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson in Water for Elephants
Sweet Reese and Rob top our chart again in another story about forbidden love between a circus train stowaway-turned veterinarian and the cruel circus owner’s wife. Two animal lovers, loving each other. We can support that.
Eric and Sookie (had to call them by their True Blood names, obviously)
The usually merciless and manipulative Eric has a little “accident” and suddenly become submissive. And Sookie is all about it. We think the writers fit that twist in just so audiences could finally see this sexual tension come to fruition. And we’re okay with that.
Anne Hathaway and Christian Bale in The Dark Knight Rises
Sorry if we spoiled it for those of you who haven’t seen it yet but…this kiss was a long time coming!
