Celebrities Remember Their Awkward First Kiss

Ah, it’s that time of the year again: smoochin' season.

Valentine’s Day may be the only excuse singles have to go into hiding, as couples take to the streets and social media to endlessly smother each other (and our timelines) with their near-infinite displays of public affection. Celebrities are no stranger to this phenomenon: They're just as quick to snap themselves brushing lips with their lover for the perfect Instagram photo.

But stars like Rihanna, Zayn Malik and even the Kiss queen herself, Carly Rae Jepsen, weren’t always the natural born kissing experts we perceive them to be today. In fact, you’ll be surprised to find out most celebrities have generally mortifying first kiss stories. (And don't we all?)

In honor of February's most romantic holiday, Valentine's Day, we’re running down the good, the bad and the cringe-worthy first kiss stories of some of your favorite celebrities.

Check out our gallery above to discover how twenty celebrities fared during their first kiss.
