Celebrity First Kiss Stories That Prove All First Kisses Are Awkward

Whether your first kiss was sloppy or suprisingly smooth, we all have a memorable first kiss story that we have ingrained in our brains. Some of these celebrities experienced similar hilarious mishaps and tribulations, but one happened to have her first kiss with what turned out to be her future husband!

1. Christian Bale


While, Christian Bale’s mom worked as a clown and dancer, Christian supposedly kissed a Polish trapeze artist, named Barta, at only seven years old.

2. Jessica Alba


Jessica Alba talked about her first kiss with Larry King. His name was Ross, and “he was awful,” she said. Apparently, he never picked her for any of the neighborhood baseball teams which she found very rude.

3. Justin Bieber


When 95.8 Capital FM asked Justin Bieber about his first make out, he couldn’t remember her name, but he did know it was at a school dance and that “basically, it was kind of bad.” He had a bet going with his friends that the first person to kiss a girl would get $10, so Justin went in for the kill during a slow dance.

5. Josh Hutcherson


Josh told Seventeen that his first kiss was horrible. He was only 11 years old and was filming in New York City. In fact, the kiss was on camera with “a crew of about 50 people standing around watching.” His mom and dad were both there (for support, of course). Josh described it as the “most non-real, non-intimate” first kiss ever.

6. Charlize Theron


Charlize described her first kiss to NYRock as “so planned.” His name was Nicky, and she said they knew from the beginning it was going to happen when he came over to watch the ever-romantic movie, Friday the 13th. She describes it as “darkness, saliva and tongue.”

7. Carly Rae Jepsen


Carly told MTV News that she “waited for her first kiss.” She was 17 years old, and it was with Brenden Call, a jazz singer. In fact, the singer still keeps in touch with him via Facebook.

8. Zayn Malik


The One Direction star told Sugarscape that his first kiss was when he was about 8 or 9 years old with a girl that was taller, so he was faced with the problem of getting on her level.

9. Zac Efron


This actor told Seventeen that his first kiss was in fifth grade in a tree fort. He was playing a Truth or Dare game that turned into something a little more like “make out with the other person.” He explains he was one of the few boys there and was “pretty stoked.”

10. Hugh Jackman


When he was only 9 years old, this Australian actor kissed a girl named Sarah Dowsett. He was transferring to an all boys’ school and felt that if he didn’t jump on this chance to kiss someone, he wouldn’t “ever get to kiss a girl.”

11. Leighton Meester


Leighton’s first kiss ended in her running home! She says she was 16 and was being walked home from the movies with a guy she had mutual friends with, and got so nervous that she doesn’t remember much else except that she fled the scene shortly after.

12. Taylor Lautner


Taylor told Seventeen that his first kiss was sometime in junior high. He describes his partner and train of thought as “just a girl from school” whom he had a “little thing” with.

13. Diane Kruger


Diane Kruger’s first kiss happened when she was 13 years old with a much older boy. She was an exchange student in London and broke up with him when she found out the age difference, because she “couldn’t commit.”

14. Drew Barrymore



Fellow actor, Breckin Meyer, was Drew’s first kiss, she says in her book, The Little Lost Girl. Breckin says he was about 11 and a friend of hers when he was younger. In fact, she even got him the audition with his agent. “If you do me a favor, I’ll make out with you. That’s how I was raised,” he jokes with “Access Hollywood.”

15. Mila Kunis



The cutest and most fateful first kiss goes to Mila Kunis, who actually had her first kiss on That 70’s Show with fiance, Ashton Kutcher. She told W Magazine that he is the “love of her life.” So this one went from an awkward on-screen first kiss to marriage and a baby, it doesn’t get luckier than that!
