Some celebrities were so young when they started acting that they went through some major milestones on-screen before off-screen. Some of these milestones are definitely not the sorts of things that you would want just anyone witnessing. We have found that a number of celebrities actually had their first real kisses on-screen with people they didn’t even really know. While some of them found the experience incredibly awkward, others were total pros and viewed it as part of the job. We decided to weigh in with these celebrities and see who had their first kiss on-screen and find out how they felt about the experience. Check it out!

9. Mila Kunis

Mila Kunis’ fist real kiss was on camera with her on-screen boyfriend from “That ‘70s Show,” Ashton Kutcher. According to her, she was nervous, but excited. “I was like, ‘Oh, he’s so cute, it’s the Calvin Klein model!’” Kunis told PEOPLE in 2001. “Then I was like, ‘I have to kiss him?’ I was so nervous and uncomfortable. I had the biggest crush on him.” Now she’s engaged to Kutcher and expecting her first child with him – it is funny how things work out!

8. Saoirse Ronan

Saoirse Ronan was not very comfortable with having her first real kiss on-screen. “My very first on-screen kiss was in my very first film. I was 11 years old and hadn’t kissed a boy before. I went up to the director, Amy Heckerling who did Clueless, and said, ‘Okay. How long do you want me to kiss this guy for because I don’t want this going on for very long?’ She said, ‘You know, a few seconds.’ ‘No, how many seconds?’ She said, ‘I don’t know. Maybe three seconds?’ Every time we’d do a take, I’d make sure it was only three seconds and I’d pull away,” Ronan said.

7. Ashley Benson

Ashley Benson is another star whose first kiss was on-screen. When she was on “Days of our Lives,” she shared her first kiss with her on camera boyfriend. She was only 15 at the time and had to do in front of a number of producers and about 50 extras. “The guy playing my boyfriend was in his 20s,” Benson said. “I was like, ‘This is my first real kiss. So don’t be creepy!’ Everybody on set thought it was the cutest thing.”

6. Josh Hutcherson

According to Josh Hutcherson, he had his first kiss on-screen and it was one of the worst experiences ever. It was on the set of “Little Manhattan” when he was 11 and there was a crew of 50 people, as well as his mom and dad watching. The experience seems to have scarred him for life. “It was a horrible first kiss because I had a crew of like 50 people standing around watching me and it was the most non-real, non-intimate that I could possibly have for my first kiss I think,” Hutcherson said.

5. Kirsten Dunst

Kirsten Dunst’s first kiss was on-screen. She was forced to kiss Brad Pitt, who was almost 20 years her senior, in the movie “Interview with the Vampire.” She was only 11-years-old at the time and she wasn’t at all impressed with the experience. “It was just a peck,” Dunst said. “Everyone at the time was like, ‘You’re so lucky you kissed Brad Pitt,’ but I thought it was disgusting. I didn’t kiss anyone else until I was 16, I think. I was a late bloomer.”

4. Jesse Eisenberg

Jesse Eisenberg’s first kiss was on-screen with Jennifer Beals on the set of “Rodger Dodger.” “That was the most amazing thing ever. I hadn’t even been on a date before that movie. I was 18 years old so that was the coolest thing ever,” he recalled. “It was my first kiss with my mouth open like that. She was every man’s fantasy since 1980, so it was awesome.” Looks like Eisenberg was a late bloomer.

3. Anna Chlumsky

Anna Chlumsky’s first kiss looked pretty awkward. It was on-screen with Macaulay Culkin in the hit drama “My Girl.” The situation ended up being anything but romantic for both of the youngsters. Shortly after the film hit theatres, a young Chlumsky told People magazine, that the kiss “was just part of the job.” Culkin, on the other hand, said it wasn’t a “real kiss.” Considering how young they were at the time, we totally understand.

2. Victoria Justice

Victoria Justice’s first kiss happened on-screen. It was with Cole Strause when she guest starred on “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.” She was just 11-years-old at the time and it was in front of a live audience. Even though it was her first kiss, Justice doesn’t see it as romantic and views it as part of her job. “You can’t really look at it as something romantic, because at the end of the day it is like a job and it is work. So you have to keep that in mind unfortunately, ladies,” she said.

1. Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez’s first kiss was with Dylan Sprouse on “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.” She was only 12 at the time. According to her, it was pretty awkward. “I actually leaned him to kiss him and I had my eyes closed a little too early and I ended up missing like half of his lips. So it ended up being the most awkward kiss in the world,” Gomez recalled. That does sound pretty awkward, but definitely memorable.
