Chemistry is often difficult to fake in real life. But that only applies to real life because it’s quite easy for stars to pretend to like someone or be attracted to someone on the screen. Almost too easy, at that.
Even when there’s not even so much as a spark of attraction between two stars, one would still not be able to tell that they’re actually dreading doing an intimate scene. But only the actors working on the set know just how awkward and uncomfortable things tend to be while shooting such scenes, especially if it’s a hot kissing or make-out scene.
While many actors luckily end up having some kind of chemistry between them or already had it before doing the scene, there are plenty of those who have had to endure the discomfiture borne out of the lack of allure when it comes to doing such scenes.
Blake Lively was Penn Badgley’s best and worst kiss
A couple of years ago, Penn Badgley appeared on Watch What Happens Live, wherein he had been asked about his favorite kiss on the screen. The You star acquiesced to the question as he said that Blake Lively had been his best kissing partner at the time.
Badgley and Lively had been together in an on-and-off kind of relationship during the course of their popular show, Gossip Girl. So, it made some sense considering that they were bound to have at least some sort of attraction toward each other.
However, surprisingly enough, The Stepfather actor later revealed that the Green Lantern actress had apparently also been his worst kissing partner post their breakup. The pair had been split up whilst still shooting for Gossip Girl and Badgley recalled that things had gotten a little awkward for the both of them after that when it came to doing intimate scenes.
“I think we should both pat ourselves on the back for getting through it because, you know, anything is complicated in that way,” the Easy A actor admitted. “And we handled it.”
Ryan Reynold claimed his on-screen kiss was a great one
While his wife had different experiences on the screen, Ryan Reynolds seems to have had much better ones when it comes to kissing his co-star during a film.
Reynolds starred in the thriller film, The Voices along with Anna Kendrick, wherein both of them had gotten hot and heavy. Upon being asked what it was like to have kissed Anna Kendrick, the Deadpool star made an amusing and witty remark about it by saying it had felt “like taking your face to Awesometown.” Classic Reynolds.
And if Blake Lively had felt bad to know this, she definitely didn’t show it. After all, no kiss on screen could ever outmatch Lively and Reynolds’ real-life chemistry!
