Jennifer Lopez reveals her best on-screen kiss ever



The Notebook, 2004

Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams
Forget candlelight - romance couldn’t ask for a better wingman than rain. With this much sexual tension, anger, regret and love in the torrential downpour, it’s fair to say Noah and Allie’s reunion is one of the most passionate rainy day screen snogs of all time.Credit Rex Features



Twilight, 2008

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart
She was an ordinary schoolgirl, he a 109-year-old vampire Adonis. Their forbidden love (not to mention the fact he may drain her any minute) only served to heighten the tension of the moment their lips finally met. Swoon.



Ghost, 1990

[b] Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore
The hypnotically-spinning pottery wheel, the shirt-shy Swayze, the phallic-shaped creation, the Righteous Brothers soundtrack…Clay has never been so sexy!Credit Rex Features



Gone With The Wind, 1939

Clark Gable and Vivian Leigh

Rogue Rhett Butler to the cunning Scarlett O’Hara: “You need kissing badly. That's what's wrong with you. You should be kissed, and often, and by someone who knows how." Enough said.Credit Rex Features



Shakespeare In Love, 1999

Joseph Fiennes and Gwyneth Paltrow
This Oscar-winning period rom-com’s love scene ‘tween bard and muse is just so damn beautiful, we’d be totally jealous if we weren’t moved to tears. To see a totally buff Shakespeare (AKA Fiennes) lovingly unwrap the bound, twirling torso of Lady Viola (Gwynnie) before ravishing her so expertly she declares “I would not have thought it - there is something better than a play”....ok, yes – we ARE jealous.Credit Rex Features




Tobey Maguire and Kristen Dunst
An upside-down superhero and a little torrential downpour wouldn’t deter a grateful Mary-Jane from thanking her arachnid-like rescuer. This masked kiss has become so iconic even The OC paid homage.Credit Rex Features



Romeo + Juliet, 1996

Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes
Updating Shakespeare’s classic tragedy with a hip, modern-day Verona Beach setting for the MTV generation was pure class. Putting pin-up Leo in the role of Romeo; a stroke of genius. This beautiful pairing’s first forbidden kiss to a spellbinding soundtrack of Des’ree’s Kissing You still gets us every time. Sob!Credit Rex Features



From Here To Eternity, 1953

Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr
“I never knew it could be like this. Nobody ever kissed me the way you do." Racy fare for its time, this Pearl Harbor drama celebrated ‘the love aquatic’ as Burt and Debs enjoyed an adulterous roll in the waves on a deserted beach. No doubt responsible for all those ill-advised attempts at sand sex while on holiday.Credit Rex Features



Thelma and Louise, 1991

Brad Pitt and Geena Davis
Witness the birth of an iconic pin-up. How we cheered when downtrodden housewife Thelma got her kicks with the blessedly shirt-shy cowboy, JD. Furniture got broken, glass got smashed and Thelma, in the words of Louise, “finally got laid properly.”Credit Rex Features



Brokeback Mountain, 2005

Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger
Is it just us, or is there something undeniably hot about the way the gorgeous Heath and Jake hungrily throw each other up against the wall for their passionate reunion kiss..? Apparently not, as this kiss was voted The Best Screen Kiss Of All Time in an online poll by Rex Features



Mr & Mrs Smith, 2005

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
It’s a truth universally acknowledged that arguments lead to the best sex. In fact, ‘make-up sex’ almost makes the rowing worthwhile. Of course, in this case, the ‘argument’ in question happened to be attempted murder and the sex was between two of the most beautiful creatures to ever walk the earth, but still... So sizzling and steamy that, in Ange’s own words, the saucy pair “fell in love” on set.Credit Rex Features



Titanic, 1997

Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet
“I’m flying!” an excitable Rose exclaimed as she stood atop the prow at dusk with Jack’s arms entwined around hers. And who can blame her excitement? The lucky sort had just bagged herself Leonardo DiCaprio - in his prime no less. How our teenage selves wished to be in her vintage shoes for those love scenes.Credit Rex Features



Atonement, 2007

James McAvoy and Keira Knightley
The fashionista in us gasped at the thought of ‘hiking up’ such a beautifully priceless vintage gown, while the romantic longed for the kind of passion that illicit lovers Robbie and Cecilia experienced up against that stack of books in the library.Credit Rex Features



8 Mile, 2002

Eminem and Brittany Murphy
Gritty, sweaty and smutty, the sex between Jimmy ‘B. Rabbit’ Smith Jr. and aspiring model Alex took place in a grubby factory on a lunch-break. Insert your own ‘rabbit’ jokes. We did.Credit Rex Features



Bound, 1996

Jennifer Tilly and Gina Gershon
Before The Wachowski Brothers entered the realm of The Matrix, they had to prove themselves with their directorial debut; this clever neo-noir crime thriller, which just happened to host some of the most explicit yet artsy girl-on-girl action shots in cinematic history. Unsurprisingly, the bros impressed studio bosses enough to let them loose with their next project…Credit Rex Features



Wide Shut, 1999

Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman
The trailer for this flick featured this highly-sensationalised make-out scene, in which real-life couple Tom and Nicole got it on in front of a mirror for our viewing pleasure, and was enough to have audiences salivating at the thought of seeing the late, great Stanley Kubrick’s last movie. Nicole gave us serious body-envy, Tom looked undeniably HOT and the soundtrack – to Chris Isaak’s Baby Did A Bad Bad Thing – was pure sexy perfection.Credit Rex Features



Indecent Proposal, 1993

Woody Harrelson and Demi Moore
“You’re pants are on fire,” says Demi referring to Woody’s casually-flung boxers burning on the lit stove. His smiling reply; “You have no idea.” Classic!Credit Rex Features



Breakfast at Tiffany’s, 1961

George Peppard and Audrey Hepburn
Passionate yet tender, Holly Golightly and Paul Varjak’s classic Hollywood kiss even made room for the poor nameless puss in between them. AND it was in the rain – the recipe for Hollywood kiss success.Credit Rex Features



Pretty Woman, 1990

Richard Gere and Julia Roberts
He was a dashingly handsome millionaire business, she the ‘hooker with a heart’ – it made for a modern-day Cinderella tale and one of the sassiest screen smooches of our time. “Keep on dreamin'!”Credit Rex Features



Moulin Rouge, 2001

Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman
Baz Luhrmann’s hyper-real and frankly-dizzying spectacle showed star-crossed lovers Satine and Christian risk all for true love - and an especially saucy passion-fest. Well, it was the high-kicking, frilly-panties-flaunting Moulin Rouge after all.Credit Rex Features



Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, 1980

Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher
That's right, Leia, you know you want him! This warring pair’s love-hate relationship went intergalactic when the princess FINALLY fell into the charismatic, irresistible arms of Harrison’s Han Solo. Mmmm - you’d have to be without a single female hormone in your body not to sigh at this smooch.Credit PA Photos



Closer, 2004

Clive Owen and Natalie Portman
The most sexually-explicit film ever without a single sex scene! That’s right, Closer got sexy through script alone, but this particular scene in which Clive Owen watches a pink-wigged Natalie Portman strip naked (without revealing even a solitary nipple) is as saucy as it comes. Naughty, naughty.Credit Rex Features



Basic Instinct, 1992

Sharon Stone
One of the steamiest mainstream films ever released – the notorious ‘up-skirt’ shot is arguably Sharon’s most famous work to date.Credit Rex Features



Team America, 2004

‘Gary’ and ‘Lisa’
Watch-through-your-fingers cinema at its very best, from none other that smutty Southpark creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone. Whose jaw didn’t drop when the Thunderbird-esque puppets started ‘going at it’ porno-style? We counted no fewer than eight sexual positions before we looked guiltily away.Credit Rex Features



Forgetting Sarah Marshall, 2008

Russell Brand and Kristen Bell
Yogis Russell and Kristen not only impressed us with their extreme flexibility in this particular scene, they even had us signing our partners up to advanced Yogalites classes. Talk about hitting the spot. Star Kristen said of this scene: “We were actually thrown into a bedroom six days after we met and they said, ‘find like ten different sexual positions’.” Awkward!Credit Rex Features



Sex And The City, 2008

Chris Noth and Sarah Jessica Parker
The dizzying walk-in-wardrobe, the dazzling Manolos, the Big…it’s okay Carrie, we wouldn’t have been able to resist him either. Little Miss Bradshaw and John James Preston’s reunion kiss gets us every time. Sigh.Credit Rex Features



American Psycho, 2000

Christian Bale, Cara Seymour and Krista Sutton
That’s right – three peeps! Even Patrick Bateman couldn’t take his eyes off his impressive physique in this scene – and who can blame him? Christian was truly in top form for this energetic display of sexual prowess while, dare we say, the Phil Collins backing track and explicit commentary only adds to this clip’s watch-ability. Genius.Credit Rex Features



Original Sin, 2001

Antonio Banderas and Angelina Jolie

Exotic beauties Ant and Ange were destined to sizzle together on screen, so it’s hardly surprising that their early Noughties naughtiness makes for one of the most smouldering sex scenes in cinematic history. Sauce!Credit Rex Features



Grease, 1978

Jeff Conaway and Stockard Channing
Our favourite Grease couple – Danny and Sandy are soooo passé – were getting hot and heavy in the backseat of Grease Lightning before their ten-year-old condom broke… At least Rizzo still got a ‘hickie’ from Kenickie!Credit Rex Features



Fatal Attraction, 1987

Michael Douglas and Glenn Close
“Have you ever done it in an elevator?” asks Glenn before she pounces on her prey (a married Michael Douglas). Hot stuff – although what follows (chronic phone calls, death threats and the infamous ‘bunny boiling’)… not so hot.Credit Rex Features



Dirty Dancing, 1987

Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey
There are so many great moments in this coming-of-age tale, but our all-time favourite has to be when Baby dramatically exclaims “mostly I’m afraid of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life the way I feel when I’m with you!” Yikes. But bad boy Johnny doesn’t run a mile; he takes her in his arms and does a spot of ‘dirty dancing’ before ‘deflowering’ the innocent teen to a soundtrack of Solomon Burke. Amazing.Credit Rex Features



The Wedding Singer, 1998

Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore
Awww – we can’t get enough of the moment when Julia ‘practises’ her wedding kiss on pal Robbie, only to realise he is actually ‘the one’. Rom-com perfection.Credit Rex Features



Casablanca, 1942

Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman
"Was that cannon fire or is it my heart pounding?" Sigh, if only we could be kissed that well. In fact, every kiss from Rick’s irresistible lips leaves Ilsa emotionally-intoxicated and slipping under his suave spell. Here’s looking at you kid, indeed.Credit Rex Features



9 ½ weeks, 1986

Mickey Rourke and Kim Basinger
This erotic drama is littered with love scenes so steamy it became an instant cult classic, but if we have to pick one, it would have to be the now infamous food sequence, in which a seriously gorgeous Mickey feeds a blindfolded Kim. Sticky fingers all round, then.Credit Rex Features



Hot Shots, 1991

Charlie Sheen and Valeria Golino
Another 9 ½ weeks - Topper Harley and his therapist Ramada went one step further than Mickey and Kim five years after the original, bypassing strawberries and cream for far hotter fare – namely eggs and bacon. Hmmm.Credit Rex Features



Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 1, 2010

Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson
All grown up, Harry and Hermione got naked and naughty for this fantasy sequence in the new Potter flick. Daniel has since said: “I thought it was going to be kind of a slow, sensual thing, and Emma just like really went for it. And it was great, I’m not complaining. It was good and vigorous.” Blimey!Credit Rex Features



Alfie, 2004

Jude Law and Sienna Miller
Sienna at her sassiest, Jude at his most handsome… This beautiful coupling even hooked up off-set after acting out their sexy, not to mention über-stylish, love scenes. Jealous, us?Credit Rex Features



An Officer And A Gentleman, 1982

Richard Gere and Debra Winger
Catering to our love of men in uniform, this flick’s rousing romantic finale sees newly-graduated pilot Zack hoist lowly factory worker Paula up into his arms simultaneously spinning and kissing her to the raucous applauds of her co-workers. Cheesy, sure – but heck, we love a happy ending…even when we can’t stand the soundtrack (Up Where We Belong. Grrr).Credit Rex Features



Catch Me If You Can, 2002

Leonardo DiCaprio and Amy Adams

Obviously excited at getting her braces out and the prospect of snogging Leo, Amy Adams can’t contain her excitement – making for one of the most excruciating, if not endearing, and chaotic on-screen smooches of all time.Credit Rex Features



Top Gun, 1986

Tom Cruise and Kelly McGillis
We women are suckers for drunken karaoke-style serenading after all – and so amidst the ‘big nuts’ aerial action sequences and muscle-bound volleyball games came the tender, shadowy love scene in which Maverick and Charlie finally make out. Take My Breath Away, indeed.Credit Rex Features



Boogie Nights, 1999

Mark Wahlberg and Julianne Moore
See Marky Mark and his impressive pecs treat Julianne Moore to a little afternoon delight, porno-style, over a desk - just before we get to see what made his character Dirk Diggler so cocky. Ahem.Credit Rex Features



Spun, 2002

Jason Scwarzmann and Brittany Murphy
Speed freak Ross and dealer’s girlfriend Nikki enjoy a realistic pash-fest to a soundtrack of Zwan’s Wasting Time. Kinda skanky, sure, but also sweet.Credit Rex Features



Layer Cake, 2004

Sienna Miller was in full blonde bombshell mode when she got sexy with Daniel Craig in 2004 thriller. No wonder there were rumours that the pair had started an affair on set. Just check out that chemistry!Credit Rex Features



Four Weddings And A Funeral, 1994

Another rainy kiss but tFour Weddings And A Funeral is a British film so it's literally pouring and both actors are completely soaked through. Just check out Hugh's near-see-through shirt!Credit Rex Features



The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, 2010

Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart
Of course, R-Patz couldn’t have all the fun, and by the third Twilight flick, werewolf Jacob had his hairy paws on Bella too. Their on-screen, lust-filled smooch was the culmination of months of sexual tension ‘tween the best friends and even had fans questioning their obvious chemistry. Rob who?
