16 Super Awkward Celebrity Kisses Caught on Camera

Celebs always look glam on the red carpet but even they have awkward pictures! Especially when they’re trying to be cute with their partner by doing the classic kiss pose.

And let’s just say that the results aren’t always what you think. Check out these awkward pics of celebs kissing!

1. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez

Oop! I don’t think Ben Affleck got the memo that you’re supposed to close your eyes when you kiss someone. At least Jennifer Lopez didn’t see it happen!

2. Scarlett Johansson and John Travolta

Scarlett Johansson turned around after but the camera just caught her and John Travolta at an awkward moment.

Sorry, Scarlett was busy looking gorgeous and glam on the red carpet!

3. Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed

Gene Simmons is always known for his long tongue. And it looks like Shannon Tweed doesn’t mind showing off her tongue on the red carpet too!

4. Jennifer Lawrence and David O. Russell

Jennifer Lawrence wanted to thank her director with a kiss but it looks like his brain hadn’t registered that it was a kiss!

5. Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey

It looks like Nick Cannon doesn’t know how to do the classic kiss pose with Mariah Carey! Close your eyes when you’re kissing… but not too hard!

Look at Mariah killing it though! She’s a pro at this pose!

6. Chrissy Teigen and John Legend

Sometimes, passionate kisses don’t always photograph well. But Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are still such an attractive couple!

7. Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell

Props to Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell. The over-the-shoulder kiss is sometimes hard to nail given the angle! It’s awkward but this couple is still so adorable.

8. Salma Hayek 

It’s all just a bit of miscommunication. Salma Hayek thought it was going to be a cheek peck and her husband thought he was going to get to kiss her on the lips.

9. Katy Griffin and Ryan Seacrest

Katy Griffin leaned in too much and Ryan Seacrest leaned back too far. It’s happened to all of us!

10. Michelle and Barack Obama

Michelle and Barack Obama just missed each other! It’s almost like when a high five doesn’t go right.

11. Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber

Selena Gomez didn’t realize that Justin Bieber wasn’t leaning in to tell her a secret. He was trying to kiss her!

12. Eva Mendes and Will Smith

There might have been a bit of miscommunication between Eva Mendes and Will Smith.

13. George Clooney and Tilda Swinton

George Clooney and Tilda Swinton came up with a cool new way to kiss without really kissing.

14. Guy Ritchie and Madonna

Guy Ritchie did what we all do sometimes and kiss a bit too hard. The camera just happened to catch the moment!

I wonder if Madonna even had enough time to register what happened!

15. Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon

The camera just caught Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon at a bad time. It’s probably the split second before they both closed their eyes!

16. Sandra Bullock and Meryl Streep

Meryl Streep reminds everyone of their mum, so naturally when she was pashed/face mauled on stage by Sandra Bullock at the 2010 Critics Choice Awards, we all cringed.

SHARE if this has happened to you and your partner while trying to look cute!
