Despite how it may look in the final cut, on-screen kisses are rarely romantic. Add a huge film crew and multiple takes, and the intimate moments are anything but. Some actors are very professional and do their best to make their co-star comfortable, but others aren't so considerate. In fact, some go out of their way to make it terrible!
Millie Bobby Brown and Finn Wolfhard rose to fame in their early teens as the lead actors in Netflix's hugely successful series, 'Stranger Things.' At just 12 years old, they had to film their first on-screen kiss, and according to both parties, it was a disaster. Brown went viral in 2022 when she was asked about Wolfhard's skills in a lie detector test for Vanity Fair. “You exclaimed, ‘Kissing sucks!’ after your first kiss with Finn Wolfhard. Is Finn just a lousy kisser?” the interrogator asked her. "He is," she replied, and apparently, was telling the truth. Wolfhard finally had the opportunity to respond to the allegations in a January interview on 'The Drew Barrymore Show.'
"The romantic way of putting it is I head-butted her," he told Barrymore. “I was 12, so I’ll excuse it. I’d probably have done the same thing if I was not on screen in front of the entire world.” He went on to explain that it was his first ever on-screen kiss and he had no idea what he was doing. “I didn’t know how to like approach that in any way. There was no like, ‘You’re gonna do this thing, and at the end of the take you’re gonna kiss her.’ And so I kinda just like head-butted her.”
