13 of Your Favorite Female Stars Who Had the WORST First Kisses… Ever!

by: on | in Celebrities | No Comments

Stars — they’re literally just like us! While normal folks like us didn’t have to have our first kisses while surrounded by 50+ people and filming a TV show, it’s safe to say we still had our fair share of obstacles to overcome when it came to locking lips for the first time. Many our first-time smooch stories are far from romantic. In fact, sometimes they can be downright cringeworthy!

Sure, Taylor Swift had a lovely first kiss with a guy she ended up dating for over a year, and Zac Efron was dared to kiss anyone in a room full of girls which left him feeling “pretty stoked,” but they are definitely the exception, not the rule. Because if there’s one thing that the majority of human beings on this planet can agree on, it’s probably that first kisses are the effing worst, and totally, completely uncomfortable. The 13 gals on this list would have to agree, at least:

Selena Gomez

Like so many other celebs, Sel experienced her first kiss on camera...and with another well-known actor!

"My weirdest kissing story would have to be when I had my first kiss with Dylan Sprouse on Suite Life." Umm, jealous! "I actually leaned in to kiss him and I had my eyes closed a little too early and I ended up missing, like, half of his lips."

Let's face it, a lot of us have totally been there. Luckily, the "Hands to Myself" singer has a good attitude about the whole thing looking back and told Tiger Beat that for a first kiss, it wasn't too bad.

Vanessa Hudgens

Long before Vanessa was Zac Efron's kiss-buddy, she had a pretty awful first smooch with someone else!

"My first real kiss was, I was 15. [It was] just bad, just bad news," she explained. "Not good. You don't know what's going on, and it's so awkward, and... just horrible."

Whoever it was with, he's probably not feelin' too good about himself right now.

Even her first almost-kiss was horrifying! "[In fifth grade] they dared me to make out with my... I called him my boyfriend at the time... and they wanted us to make out and I was deathly afraid," she said. "I was wearing a retainer and they're like, 'You should take your retainer out.' Actually I chickened out… I never did it. I guess I'm not one for peer pressure."

TBH, that's a good thing!

Shailene Woodley

Poor Shai felt that she wasn't quite living up to her kissing partner's expectations.

"My first kiss was just awkward as hell," she told Yahoo!. "I had no idea what I was doing and he knew exactly what he was doing, so it was awkward for me."

Gigi Hadid

Unfortunately for Bella Hadid's big sis, braces were way too big an obstacle when it came to lip-locking.

"We both had braces... It was horrible and awkward," she explained. "Lots of metal happening! I was happy to wait a while for our next kiss."

Maybe they waited for their orthodontists to make them brace-faces no more?

Cara Delevigne

Lucky for this model/actress, all of her kisses have been significantly better than the first.

"My worst kiss was the first kiss I ever had," Cara revealed. "It kind of reminded me of a washing machine filled with... something. Actually, after we stopped kissing we both spat on the floor." How romantic.

Actually, that wasn't the only thing un-romantic about the encounter and what the Paper Towns star also admitted is pretty bad. "I was going out with a boy who had a broken leg and I think I kind of took advantage of him." ...We hope Cara realizes that's not okay even if she is a girl!

Zendaya likes to stay fairly tight-lipped about her personal life, but she did dish some deets about her first kiss to HollywoodLife. "I think first kisses in general are awkward because it's like, 'Oh my god, I don't know what to do,'" she said. "Like, it's never adorable. It's never cute. You want to get it done with and out of the way, which is exactly what I can say for me. I was just like, 'Okay, I'm done.' In fact, I think I said, "Oh, it's finally over!'"

We hope she didn't say that to the guy she was getting tongue-tied with 'cause that would mean a massively bruised ego!

RiRi is the first one to tell you that her first kiss sucked. Though she waited until she was in high school, she said, "[The guy] pretty much dumped his entire saliva glands into my mouth. It traumatized me. I didn't kiss [again] for, like, ever."

So, basically, "it was the worst thing, ever," she confirmed.

Leighton Meester

In an interview with TV Fanatic, Leighton talked about her bad first kiss. It was so bad, in fact, she hardly remembers it!

"I was 16, a guy I knew through friends from school, he was walking me home from the movies, and I honestly was so nervous and couldn't believe I was getting my first kiss, so I don't remember much else but turning around and running home," she revealed.

During a more recent girl-talk, she relived the horror and said, "My friend from middle school and I were talking about [our first kisses] recently, we were pretty much not interested in guys at that age."

Ashley Rickards

At 14 years old, the Awkward. star's first kiss experience was actually a near-death experience?!?!

"I literally thought I was going to die because he suffocated me with his tongue. It was a horrible experience," Ash confessed to Seventeen.

Keke Palmer

Keke's beginner smooch was actually with High School Musical star Corbin Bleu. But like Selena, it was only for that Hollywood magic.

In an interview with Access Hollywood Live, the Nickelodeon star spilled the tea. "I was very, very nervous," she said. "I was like, 'Oh my gosh, this is the first person I am kissing outside of my family.' It was real scary for me."

She continued, "We did [the kiss scene] like 20 times. I became really self-conscious, I was like 'Should I be having my first kiss on a movie? Should I let that happen to me? Maybe this is all a bad thing?'" Noooo, that's so sad!

Meghan Trainor

While some first kisses leave you feeling sick, the "All About That Bass" belter actually had the star vomiting!

During The Late Late Show with James Corden, Meg admitted, "I was a freshman in high school... He backed me up to my wall and was like, 'Can I kiss you?' And I was like, 'Yeah, hold that thought.' And I ran to my bathroom and I threw up. Not because I was grossed out, but because I had the flu. And it hit me at that moment in time."

Kirsten Dunst

Most would probably think that a smooch with Brad Pitt sounds like a dream. According to this Spider-Man actress, however, not so much.

The star told Conan O'Brien, "Everyone at the time was like, 'You're so lucky you kissed Brad Pitt,' but I thought it was disgusting." To be fair, Kirst was 11 years old and he was 29 (for the movie Interview with the Vampire). "I didn't kiss anyone else until I was 16, I think," she said.

Reese Witherspoon

Unfortunately, this Legally Blonde girl chose the wrong sweetie to get her kiss on with.

"I was in fifth grade and thought I was in love with a boy named Graham. So we kissed," she told The Daily Caller. "Then he broke my heart and told everybody that I was flat-chested and that's why he didn't like me anymore." Umm... WHAT?! That's totally messed up.
