Mwah! Puckering up on camera is a major part of many celebrities’ careers — and some stars were fortunate enough to have good kisses from the start.
Taylor Swift, for example, ended up in a relationship with the boy who smooched her for the first time. “I was one of the last of my friends to ever kiss a guy. It wasn’t a bad kiss,” the “Look What You Made Me Do” singer told Tiger Beat in 2013. “I think it was cute. We ended up dating for a year!”
Similarly, Milo Ventimiglia said his first kiss, which happened when he was a freshman in high school, was scary, but very sweet. “I was shocked and terrified and in love and feeling something I’d never really felt before,” he told W magazine in June 2017. “And it was amazing and I wanted it again.”
Khloé Kardashian, on the other hand, remembers the circumstances surrounding her first kiss, but can’t recall details of the person she shared it with. “It was on a family vacation in Hawaii when I was 12 or 13,” she wrote in a blog post on her website in April 2016. “The teenagers were allowed to be out until 10 p.m. and we were in an arcade where the hotel kids hung out. I remember I kissed some guy there and I thought I was so cool and so grown. I don’t remember the boy and I can’t tell you anything else about the experience.”
However, some stars such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Kristen Stewart, Selena Gomez and Shailene Woodley didn’t get as lucky in the kissing department, and have horrible memories of the first time they puckered up. Keep scrolling to get all the cringeworthy details of celebs’ awkward first kisses!
