Check Out Some Famous Unscripted Onscreen Kisses That Were Never Supposed To Happen

It almost goes without saying that when you have a TV show or movie, there will be some romance between characters. It seems inevitable when strangers cross paths in some dramatic fashion that they’ll start to form feelings for one another. A good movie or TV show will play up the romantic tension between the characters until finally… the big kiss happens! Generally, these scenes are planned from the beginning, but there have been some famous unscripted onscreen kisses that were never supposed to happen.

Jurassic World

The 2015 movie blockbuster Jurassic World reinvigorated the franchise that Steven Spielberg brought to stunning life in 1993. Bringing back some old concepts, introducing the then-rising action star Chris Pratt to the series along with Bryce Dallas Howard, the Universal Studios film became a roaring success. Part of that was due to Pratt and Howard’s contentious relationship.

During the climax of the film, Pratt famously kisses Howard, which was a shock to her. According to director Colin Trevorrow, the kiss was never in the script and the only person he told to do it was Pratt himself. During one take Pratt leans in and kisses Howard. Her reaction is exactly what was used in the final cut of the film.

Lost in Translation

Lost in Translation is one of the those movies that you’re not quite sure how it works, but it does, leaving you pondering its many questions about life and society. Bob (Bill Murray) is an aging Hollywood star and is in Japan shooting commercials for a Japanese whiskey company. He meets a much younger college student Charlotte (Scarlett Johansson), and the two form an unlikely relationship that ends with a shocking kiss.

According to director Sofia Coppola, Murray improvised the kiss (and the indecipherable whisper into Johansson’s ear) at the end of the film.

Top Gun

Top Gun stands as one of Hollywood icon Tom Cruise’s most beloved movies. It’s also one of those movies with a great, if complicated love story. During the scene where Maverick (Cruise) and Charlie (Kelly McGillis) finally kiss, tensions are running high until Maverick finally plants one on Charlie. If the kiss seems very spur-of-the-moment, that’s because it was, and for a funny reason.

During the scene, Charlie is telling Maverick that she doesn’t want anyone to find out about her feelings for him. They’re going back and forth, until Cruise reaches out and passionately kisses her. According to on-set reports, the abrupt kiss wasn’t planned and the dialogue was supposed to continue for some time. However, Cruise reportedly forgot his lines and on a whim just reached out to kiss McGillis. The scene ended up working beautifully and was kept in the final cut.

Edge Of Tomorrow

During the harrowing action-packed climax, Cage and Vrataski are pursued by the Mimics as the two attempt to reach the Omega. With little chance of survival, Cage and Vrataski plot how they can win, knowing both will likely die. Vrataski thanks Cage for getting her as far as they did, and kisses him. According to reports, Blunt never rehearsed this with Cruise, and just went in for the kiss on a whim.
