10 Celebs Who Adorably Had Their First Kisses On Screen

Caleb McLaughlin of Stranger Things 2 had a momentous life event play out on screen this year: He had his first kiss. His character Lucas landed a wet one on Max (Sadie Sink) in the season 2 finale, and McLaughlin revealed that the moment on screen is indeed his first kiss.

"It starts getting closer, and I'm like, 'Wow,' because it was my first kiss," McLaughlin said of the experience on Beyond Stranger Things. "So, I'm like, 'This is feeling weird.'" Overall, he seemed pretty down with it.

This is actually a pretty frequent occurrence for young actors. The little famous people get into the business before they have a chance to have a real first kiss. Moreover, most of them aren't in regular school. So, a lot of adolescent milestones happen on screen.

These stars are lucky, though. Their first kisses are preserved on film for the rest of time. Ahead, the tweeny stars who locked lips for the first time on the job.

Millie Bobby Brown

In the first season of Stranger Things, Brown kissed her co-star Finn Wolfhard. It was her first kiss. Brown said on The Tonight Show that after the kiss, she stood up and said, "Kissing sucks!"

"It was really awkward because everyone was there. My dad was sitting there, I mean, it was like, awful," Brown said.
Saoirise Ronan

Ronan had to kiss a boy on the set of I Could Never Be Your Woman (2007).

"My character really liked this boy, and she didn’t know if he noticed her," Ronan told W Magazine. "In the end she got to kiss him. At that time, I was only 11 years old, and not ready to kiss a boy. I asked the director, 'How long do you want me to kiss him? How many seconds?' And the director said, 'Three seconds.' So while kissing, I counted in my head. Every single take I was like, One, two, three. And then: 'Okay, kill, cut!' I definitely suffered for art."
Josh Hutcherson

In the mid-00s, Hutcherson was the go-to romantic kid. Ergo, lots of kisses. He had his first kiss on the set of Little Manhattan (2005) when he was only 11 years old. To be fair, in Little Manhattan, the kiss is also his character Charlie's first kiss as well.
Ashley Benson

The Pretty Little Liars star had her first kiss at 15 on the set of Days of Our Lives.

"The guy playing my boyfriend was in his 20s," she told Teen Vogue. "I was like, 'This is my first real kiss. So don't be creepy!' Everybody on set thought it was the cutest thing."
Dakota Fanning

Ever see Sweet Home Alabama (2002)? That was Dakota Fanning's first kiss! Fanning told W magazine that, according to her set tutor at the time, Fanning would turn away and wipe her mouth after each take.
Mila Kunis

Kunis's first kiss is practically legend at this point. She kissed Ashton Kutcher, her now husband, on the set of That '70s Show. It was her first kiss. And, hey, now they're married.

"“I was like, ‘Oh, he’s so cute, it’s the Calvin Klein model!’” Kunis told People in 2001. “Then I was like, ‘I have to kiss him?’ I was so nervous and uncomfortable. I had the biggest crush on him.”
Sadie Sink

Sink, 15, had her first kiss on the set of Stranger Things 2 — with Caleb McLaughlin!

"Our first kiss was in front of 200 extras, and their parents, and my mom," Sink said on Beyond Stranger Things.
Caleb McLaughlin

McLaughlin told Vanity Fair that Finn Wolfhard, his co-star, gave him advice on that final kiss.

"Finn gave me some advice. He’s the master at it. He’s like, ‘Just poke your lips out and keep it firm and then make them soft.’ And I was like, ‘Okay!’ It wasn’t that bad. It was cool. If I have to do more, then I have to," McLaughlin said.
Selena Gomez

Yes, SelGo's first kiss was on camera — on The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, no less. According to Complex, she kissed Dylan Sprouse on the show. Gomez was just 12 years old.

"I actually leaned in to kiss him, and, I closed, my eyes a little too early, so I ended up missing half of his lips," Gomez told Tiger Beat in 2009.
Victoria Justice

The Nickelodeon star had her first kiss with Cole Sprouse, who now stars as Jughead on Riverdale. They smooched on the second episode of the first season of the show, actually. Justice was 12 years old.
