Emma Watson, Julia Roberts, and other stars who were not wanted to kiss on set
Sometimes actors improvise - passionately kissing colleagues on the set, even though it's not in the script. After the release of the film "Babylon," Margot confessed to E! News: "It (kiss - Ed.) Was not in the script. But when else will I have a chance to kiss Brad Pitt?"
And there are cases where actors refuse to do this. Someone because he is afraid of the anger of his loved one, and someone - out of their own considerations. Find out in the article OBOZREVATEL, which celebrities begged directors to remove kissing scenes.
Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett
When Brad Pitt starred in "The Mysterious History of Benjamin Button," he refused to kiss Cate Blanchett. The reason was his wife Angelina Jolie (the couple divorced in 2019). The actor knew well the character of his beloved, so he sought to avoid conflicts and misunderstandings.
The director did not like this decision, but he managed to persuade Pitt to several intimate scenes in order to play the actors as convincingly as possible for the audience.
2. Kirsten Dunst and Tobey Maguire
During the filming of Spider-Man (2002), the main actors did not refuse to kiss. The only exception was one scene. We are talking about the moment when Spider-Man(Toby) was hanging head down in the rain next to Mary(Kirsten). In an interview, the celebrity confessed what it was like: "Blood was constantly flowing to my head and a stream of water was pouring into my nose, which simulated rain. I couldn't think of a more uncomfortable kissing position.
This shot was shot with a large number of takes. A lot of nerves were spent on it. Dunst and Maguire begged to cut that kiss from the film. But the directors were against it: for them it is more valuable entertainment, not the state of the actors.
3. Emma Watson and Rupert Grint
Actors Emma Watson and Rupert Grint began starring in the Harry Potter movie series beginning in 2001. In the last picture there was a scene with a passionate kiss of their characters - Ron and Hermione. In the last picture there was a scene with a passionate kiss between their characters, Ron and Hermione. For a long time, the actors dissuaded the directors from this ridiculous idea. After all, over the years they have literally become related to each other, and saw themselves more in the role of sisters and brothers, rather than lovers.
4. Julia Roberts and Denzel Washington
American film actor and director Denzel Washington decided not to kiss his colleague Julia Roberts while filming "The Pelican Case." He reasoned that he doesn't want to maintain Hollywood standards of beauty and alienate his dark-skinned female fans.
5. Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder
In the series "The Vampire Diaries" actors Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder convincingly played more than a dozen intimate scenes. At the height of their popularity, these two had an affair not only on screen, but also in real life. The couple broke up even before filming the final season. Then it became unbearable for them to play lovers. Consequently, the characters of Dobrev and Somerhalder only occasionally held hands and conveyed feelings in glances and dialogues.
