Movie stars’ careers are essentially a never-ending game of spin the bottle. With each new role they secure, actors let top casting directors give them a new love interest to flirt with, fall for, and, eventually, kiss. And while there are plenty of kisses that really are as intense and romantic as they seem on screen, there are just as many that are uncomfortable and sloppy behind the scenes. After all, not every kiss in the real world goes according to plan.
Do you know that actors kiss for real in TV drama shows? It can be acting but when it comes to things like kissing, hugging and all that it is done for real.
Check out South African actors who are labelled as bad at kissing on screens below:
