If you want to make a movie truly amazing, always include a lesbian kiss. That's a lesson that writers and directors are learning as we are starting to see a lot more girl on girl action in film and television these days. And it's no mystery why we are seeing so many lesbian relationships. First of all, it gets people interested, plain and simple. Both men and women dig seeing chicks make out, as even women will admit that females are the more attractive of the two sexes. Second of all, there's been huge strides taken in recent years regarding the acceptance of same sex couples. Because it's becoming more and more common in society, it only makes sense that lesbian relationships become more common in film and television as well.
An on-screen kiss can be very challenging for some actors, whether or not it's a lesbian kiss or a heterosexual one. Many times these actors have partners or spouses that are important to them. Kissing another person can feel like cheating, even if it's done in a professional matter. Then there is also the fact that they're surrounded by cameramen, sound guys, and the director, who are all staring intently.
But there are some actresses that love on-screen kissing, especially if it's of the sapphic variety. These girls can hardly wait until they get a chance to hook up with their female co-stars, and they don't even try to hide it. These actresses have come out and admitted that kissing another girl was not hard for them. In fact, it excited them and was extremely enjoyable.
15 Shay Mitchell - Pretty Little Liars
The first gal on our list who loved hooking up with her female co-star is Shay Mitchell. This amazingly hot young talent was born in Canada, but she's starting to take the Hollywood scene by storm. You might recognize her from her appearances in Glee, but most of you probably know her from the hit show, Pretty Little Liars. As you can see, this show gets pretty heated, and the script called for her to lock lips with her equally attractive co-star. She plays a character named Emily Fields, who is known for hooking up with pretty much anyone she can get her hands on.
Speaking about the experience, Mitchell admitted: "Sometimes I'd rather kiss another girl than I would some random guy I don't know. They smell pretty, they have cute lip balm on. Emily is quite the player on the show, so it's always fun."
14 Naya Rivera - Glee
Another girl who couldn't get enough of her on-screen lesbian kisses was Naya Rivera. She's another star from Glee, and she became famous for her role as a bisexual cheerleader, Santana Lopez. While other actresses might have gotten uneasy at the prospect of making out with a girl on camera, Rivera took it all in stride. She was exceedingly calm about the whole affair, and even admitted that she preferred kissing girls over men:
"On that show, I've had to kiss both men and women, and I would say that it was easier to kiss the women." Wow, that is one hell of a statement. Although you'll probably start to realize as you get further into this article that it's a common one. The general consensus among most women is that girls are easier to kiss, and they find it more pleasant. Who would have thought? Actually there have been quite a few scientific studies that prove that pretty much all women find other women sexually attractive. This might explain a few things...
13 Ellen Degeneres & Sharon Stone - If These Walls Could Talk 2
It only seems fair that we include at least one woman on this list who's actually lesbian. We've all known for some time that Ellen Degeneres was a lesbian, and she came out in 1997. Only 3 years later, she starred in a TV movie called If These Walls Could Talk 2, alongside actress Sharon Stone. This film cast the two women as lesbian lovers who were trying to conceive. And this movie included a lot more than just a kiss. There was actually an entire lesbian sex scene which included some tasteful nudity. This is a unique case of a lesbian kiss, because one actress was actually lesbian, whereas most of the other entries on this list feature two straight females.
Speaking about her experience, Sharon Stone admitted: "Ellen has no idea how beautiful she is - how beautiful her body is, how sexy she is. I don't know why. You don't have mirrors in your house? You don't see yourself on TV?" To which Ellen added, "It's funny though. I'm the gay one, she's the straight one, I'd wanna be in bed with her! I wouldn't go, OK, now someone else jump in while she kisses my back."
12 Laura Prepon - Orange Is The New Black
Another hugely popular show that features a lot of girl on girl action is Orange Is The New Black. Men and women alike are obsessed with this show, and for good reason. It's actually a really interesting show. Of course, it doesn't hurt that girls like Laura Prepon are regularly hooking up with hot girls like Taylor Schilling. Of course, they're not the only ones who were hooking up on the show, as the TV series takes place in a women's prison, where that type of thing is actually pretty common in real life. But Laura Prepon admitted that she actually really enjoyed the chemistry between her and Schilling, saying that it was "really cool."
"The main thing I learned [playing a lesbian on TV] was, whether it's a man or woman, if there's chemistry, there’s chemistry. Taylor and I have amazing chemistry. We were so comfortable and the chemistry we have comes across on camera. It's really, really cool."
11 Eliza Taylor - The 100
Another show that is pushing the boundaries is The 100. This show, shot in Vancouver, BC, follows a series of events that take place after the world has been bombarded with nuclear bombs. Years later, a group of 100 children get sent down to the surface from a space station to try and see if it's safe. They get into all kinds of adventure, meeting tribespeople who have somehow survived the blasts. One of the show's stars is Eliza Taylor, who is an incredibly talented young Australian actress.
One of the most exciting moments in the show was when Eliza Taylor's character kissed another female character called Lexa. This was certainly exciting for the audience, but it seems like Eliza herself was just as revved up as those watching: "Shooting the Lexa kiss was really great. She's a babe, and it was something that I've never gotten to do before… It was really cool to be able to do something like that."
10 Molly Bernard - Younger
Another TV show that you might have noticed recently is TV Land's Younger. This show features a very talented cast, and it obviously includes some lesbian themes. Before this lesbian kiss, the show might not have gotten your attention, but afterwards it became a lot more popular. That's because it had two attractive actresses, Debi Mazar and Molly Bernard. And they were really going at it. Not only that, but they genuinely enjoyed the action too, as Molly Bernard readily admitted:
"I've never had a love scene with a man, and so in a way it felt really right to have a love scene with a woman. And of all women, Debi Mazar, who is just really, really — aside from being gorgeous and talented — she's so kind, and just so supportive. It was easy. It was surprisingly one of my favorite days on set."
9 Amanda Seyfried - Jennifer's Body
One of the most iconic lesbian films of recent years was Jennifer's Body. Although this movie didn't do too well in the box office, it's acquired somewhat of a cult following since its release on DVD, and it's not hard to see why. The movie stars two smoking hot babes in Amanda Seyfried and Megan Fox, and if that wasn't enough, they're hooking up for pretty much the entire movie. Speaking of her experience of getting down and dirty with Megan Fox, Seyfried could barely contain her excitement:
"Jennifer's Body is my favorite movie that I've done. It was overlooked in theatres, but it does have a DVD following. I can't believe nobody wanted to see Megan Fox and me hitting it. They had an extreme close-up of our tongues, and I'm telling you, the thing about the scene is that it's actually really sexy." She later added, "I think Megan and I kissed really well together. We have similar kissing styles and it worked. We got it done for the masses."
8 Scarlett Johansson - Morning Brew
Another movie famous for its lesbian love scenes is Morning Brew. This breathtaking movie featured three of Hollywood's hottest women: Scarlett Johansson, Charlize Theron, and Penelope Cruz. All three women were pretty enthusiastic when it came to the lesbian kissing scenes, and you could really feel that there was some strong, genuine energy between these sexually charged women.
Scarlett Johansson confirmed that there were lots of sparks flying on the set of this movie, saying "I think there’s a lot of chemistry between the characters and all of us as actors and that’s where the steaminess comes from, because it’s not really explicit, I mean people kissing, and you even said by the rating, I mean nothing is like crazy about it, but it, you know because there’s such a chemistry between the characters and you’re really invested in them and it’s such a turn it’s like whoa, wait a minute, like I thought that this wasn’t going to work out but it’s seemingly, and even my character’s kind of surprised by it herself, it’s sort of, you know…" Penelope Cruz echoed these statements of enthusiasm, saying “Are you asking if I like kissing Scarlett and Charlize? It was not bad.”
7 Piper Perabo - Lost And Delirious
Piper Perabo is another girl who found herself in a situation where she had to do a lesbian kiss on screen, but she admitted that she didn't really mind it. She also went as far as to admit that her co-star, Jessica Pare, was attractive enough to make the job a lot easier for her. This amazing lesbian kiss, which has gone down as one of the hottest girl on girl make out sessions of all time, was filmed in the movie Lost And Delirious, which was released in 2001.
Perabo admitted: "Uh...The kiss? She's, you know, quite good looking. [jokes] She brushes her teeth." Somehow I doubt that she was thinking about Pare's teeth when she was tongue deep down her throat. There is visible passion that you can feel when you watch this kiss, and I think there was a lot more going through her mind than whether her co-star had brushed her teeth...
6 Neve Campbell & Denise Richards - Wild Things
Another kiss that went down in history as one of the hottest ever was shared by Denise Richards and Neve Campbell. This was part of the film Wild Things, which was released in 1998. Go watch it. Now. This kiss is too hot to sum up in words. But one person who wasn't afraid to share just how much fun she had with this scene was Neve Campbell herself.
She revealed what exactly what was going through her mind leading up to that fateful kissing scene: "Ok, I'm gonna make out with a girl for the first time in my life. It's so interesting that a lot of times you learn things about yourself and have new experiences when shooting a scene, because they're things you wouldn't normally do in your life." She later said of the experience: "I got to kiss Denise in the film. It was fun. We just sorta went in and did it... Actually, we mixed margaritas and brought a bottle of wine in my trailer and got drunk first."
5 Sarah Michelle Gellar - Cruel Intentions
This list wouldn't be complete without a kiss that actually won an award from MTV. We all remember this moment from the iconic film Cruel Intentions. The highlight of the entire movie was a passionate kiss shared between Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair. This was two amazingly hot young actresses going at it with no holding back. The way you can see their tongues probing each other's mouths in a breathtaking close up is incredible. It's clear that these girls weren't just "faking it" for camera. For a second, it was like the cameras weren't there, and they were just two hot girls making out.
These girls enjoyed this kiss so much that they took the opportunity to recreate it again at the MTV awards. They both went to the stage together and shared an equally passionate kiss for all to see. But according to Sarah Michelle Gellar, these two were "practicing" for hours before they had to film this kiss. As part of her acceptance speech she said, "Good thing we've had all that practice!" Many took this as a joke, but was it really?
4 Rashida Jones - Our Idiot Brother
Our Idiot Brother was another movie that featured strong lesbian themes. Zooey Deschanel plays a bisexual hipster who lives with her girlfriend, a character played by Rashida Jones. These two hot, young, and talented actresses show their love for each other as a normal lesbian couple would do, and it comes off as being extremely genuine. Rashida Jones seems to have immersed herself so completely in this role that she started to realize what she'd been missing!
Speaking about her experience, she admitted: "I was like, 'Oh, my God, girls are so pretty and soft. No stubble burn! What am I doing with guys? I haven't dipped back since, but I was very appreciative of the experience. I'm never shocked [when someone comes out]. If there weren't still such a stigma, half of the acting and music community would come out. Luckily, there's less of a stigma every day."
3 Tabrett Bethell - The Legend Of The Seeker
The Legend Of The Seeker was a short-lived TV show based on a series of well-known fantasy novels. Although it only lasted a couple of years before it was cancelled, it gave us some of the hottest lesbian action ever captured on film. Tabrett Bethell was one of the main reasons for why it was so hot. She played a cruel bisexual "mistress," who loved to get physical with her female minions, asking them to "serve her" in very imaginative ways. I know, hot right? Another person who thought the scenes were hot was Bethell herself.
Bethell could not contain her excitement about her lesbian scenes, proclaiming, "The juicier and darker my character got the more excited I got. BRING IT ON! And when I started to feel like I had a better understanding of Cara this process became rather thrilling. That’s what I love about being an actor – it gives you permission to do things you wouldn’t normally do." She added, "And how exciting to play a character that gets to enjoy the best of both worlds, both sexes, how fun!"
2 Mischa Barton - The O.C.
Mischa Barton is another actress who's famous for her steamy on screen lesbian scenes. Her character on The OC famously starting dating a girl played by Olivia Wilde, and what resulted was some seriously breathtaking make out scenes that were impossible to take your eyes off. You really got the feeling that these two girls were completely relaxed, and just happy being in each other's arms. They may not actually be lesbians, but I think they fooled a lot of people. Mischa Barton herself admits that she really enjoys all her lesbian kissing scenes, and is less tense when she gets it on with a woman while the cameras are rolling:
"It’s so much easier to kiss a girl. You’re so much more relaxed filming than you are doing a guy and girl scene. You can relax and have a laugh about it, whereas if it’s a man you have to kiss, the whole thing’s a bit tense."
1 Emmanuelle Chriqui - Electra Luxx
You might not have heard of the independent film Electra Luxx, but you might want to check it out, especially if you're into some good old-fashioned girl on girl action. This movie features some of the most blood pumping lesbian kisses of all time, and it's all thanks to the enthusiasm of the movie's two stars - Emmanuelle Chriqui and Adrianne Palicki. These two amazingly hot actresses really went for it in their romantic scenes, and it showed. And Adrianne Chriqui made no secrets about how fired up these scenes got her.
When speaking of how much she enjoyed a particularly hot lapdance scene involving the two women, Chriqui gushed, "Annie, of course, was making me feel like a million dollars that day." She also added that her co-star was noticing that she was really loving their kissing scenes: “Annie, in the scenes, looked at me and said ‘You like this. You’re getting used to this.’ Is that true? Those little moments and I think that’s what great about what Sebastian writes. It makes you think.”
