Alec Baldwin and Jennifer Aniston on '30 Rock'

Plenty of actors would line up to do an onscreen smooch session with the Friends beauty Jennifer Aniston… but don’t include Alec Baldwin on that list!

Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze in 'Dirty Dancing'

Jennifer Grey needed to retake a chemistry class! She didn’t think she had any of the smoldering sexual tension with Patrick Swayze that audiences obviously saw.

"I didn’t think we had chemistry. It’s a weird thing, though. It doesn’t have to do with whether you like someone or not. It’s just you either have it or you don’t," said Grey.

Colin Farrell and Kate Beckinsale in 'Total Recall'

Colin Farrell said making out with Kate Beckinsale was "a little bit dodgy" because her then-husband, Len Wiseman, was the film’s director and "wasn’t kind enough to leave the room. Being a director he had to watch the scene, which was a little bit creepy."

Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner in 'Twilight'

Kristen Stewart had to kiss good friend Taylor Lautner as well as her own real-life boyfriend at the time, Robert Pattinson, so it was pretty clear which of her two leading men Bella preferred locking lips with.

Liam Hemsworth and Jennifer Lawrence in 'Hunger Games'

Hunky Liam Hemsworth despised bussing on Lawrence because she was a great pal, and she used "chemical warfare" against him!

Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson in 'Water for Elephants'

Many gals would love to kiss Pattinson, but Reese Witherspoon would rather snot!

"Rob possibly had the most hideous horrible cold of any costar I’ve ever had to do a love scene with ever in my entire life. He was literally snorting and snotting through every second of it — and it was not appealing. I’m talking green, infectious, disgusting," she shared.
