14 Super Awkward Celebrity Kisses

Wendy Stokesby:


John Travolta & Kelly Preston

A good kiss makes you feel all melty and tingly. However, a bad one? Well, let’s just say that kisses are not like pizza—the meh ones are pretty awkward. Adding a camera in the bad kissing equation can bring about disastrous results. Think: Tipper and Al Gore at the Democratic National Convention in 2000. Or: Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley kissing on stage at the MTV Music Video Awards in 1994. Or: Most recently, John Travolta and Kelly Preston trying to convince us that they are a real heterosexual couple at the “Savages” premiere. It ain’t working. Does John know he’s supposed to put his lips on her lips, not in them? You can tell they haven’t been practicing their lip lock very often. Or EVER.


Jessica Simpson & Eric Johnson

Jessica Simpson takes first prize in this department for this bizarro kiss she shared with Eric Johnson when they first started dating. Why, oh why, would she want to show this to the world via Twitter? It looks like two llamas sharing a piece of hay. And we’re not even sure llamas eat hay. [People]

Robert Downey Jr. & Susan Downey

Oops! Robert Downey Jr. missed his wife’s mouth and got her nose instead. Or they’re aliens and this is their mating ritual. [NY Post]

Annalynne McCord & Kellan Lutz

Defunct couple AnnaLynne McCord and Kellan Lutz were mega hot together. Just, uh, not in this photo. [Just Jared]

Meryl Streep & Sandra Bullock

When Sandra Bullock kissed Meryl Streep at the Critics Choice Awards a couple years back, it looked more like Sandie was asking if her breath smelled. Meryl looks terrified. [Zap2it]

Charlize Theron & Dane Cook

Yes, this would be Dane Cook kissing Charlize Theron‘s butt while Jay Leno watched back in 2005. [Softpedia]

Blake Shelton & Miranda Lambert

Miranda Lambert’s kiss with then fiance Blake Shelton at the 2010 CMA Awards was just a little awkies.

Irina Lazareanu & Mischa Barton

At Mischa Barton’s 23rd birthday, model Irina Lazareanu planted one on her. Note: if you have to wrap your arms that tightly around someone and they pull back when you kiss them, they aren’t into it. [Hollywood Grind]

Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are usually adorable. But while Nick is younger, the way he’s closing his eyes in this photo makes him look about 5 years old. You can almost hear him thinking, “If I can’t see them, they can’t see me.” [ABC News]

Simon Cowell & Mezhgan Hussainy

When Simon Cowell kissed former fiance Mezhgan Hussainy on “Jay Leno,” he proved he is a hunka hunka burning love. Not! It was obvious that these two had no chemistry. [Daily Mail]

The Obamas

The Obamas have perfected the art of the cute but tasteful kiss. This one, however, just seemed off.

Eva Mendes & Will Smith

The only sense we can make of this photo of Eva Mendes and Will Smith is that some serious mis-communication happened. She was on the way for a cheek kiss when he puckered up and looked at her boobs? [India Times]

Kanye West & Amber Rose

Kanye West and Amber Rose show a lot of tongue in this Terry Richardson shot. It’s almost hot, but we can’t stop picturing Amber grabbing onto that little tuft of hair on the back of his head. [Necole Bitchie]

Goldie Hawn & Kurt Russell

As Goldie Hawn layed one on Kurt Russell at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival, we had proof that a good kiss is not all lip. [India Times]
