These are kiss scenes that are considered unnatural, forced and offensive.
Hollywood screens have great kissing scenes, but there are also scenes that are quite difficult and forced. Casino.org has teamed up with Patti Wood – a world-renowned expert in human behavior research and non-verbal communication to find and evaluate famous kiss scenes on screen.
Wood and his personal team watched hours of kissing scenes and scored them on scales of “kissing concentration,” “consensus” and “spontaneousness,” combining with the body language of the character and make the final conclusion. So the kisses with the lowest score are…
Katniss and Gale (The Hunger Games)
Expert Wood ranked the kiss of two characters Katniss and Gale in the survival movie The Hunger Games at the lowest rank on the “concentration” scale. That means Katniss and Gale aren’t fully engaged in this kiss scene, making it rather forced and distracting.
“They sat next to each other, when they kissed, they didn’t turn around and didn’t even look each other in the eye. In fact, he also avoids the opponent’s eyes and constantly looks down, “Wood assessed.

Bella and Jacob (Eclipse)
This is the kiss scene that the expert almost gave 0 points. In the Eclipse part of the Twilight series, Bella and “Wolf Man” Jacob had a surprise kiss, but it was controversial.
What makes this kiss the worst is the reluctance. But at least now Bella is clearly showing her hesitation, even resistance because of her love for Edward.

Vivian and Edward (Pretty Woman)
The lack of consensus of surprise caused the kiss scene that was once considered sweet in Pretty Woman to be rated 1/5 points. In this scene, the female lead Vivian places her hand on her lips, then indirectly places her hand on the male lead Edward’s lips like a kiss.
It is worth mentioning that at this time Edward… was fast asleep. Therefore, although this is one of the most loved kissing scenes by the audience, on the scale, it is still not appreciated by experts.

Bella and Edward (Twilight)
In the naturalness category, Wood again mentioned Twilight and this time as the main couple. According to the expert, Bella and Edward have quite awkward kissing scenes, mostly from young acting, and the two sides are still not really comfortable.
From Bella and Edward’s hand positions, breathing, and movements, it’s clear that this wasn’t the smoothest scene in production. However, at the MTV Movie Awards, the couple won 4 times in the category “Best Kiss Scene”!

Jack and Rose (Titanic)
This is the most surprising kiss scene on the list when, according to experts, it’s not natural. Patti Wood and experts believe that this kiss is too symbolic, so it loses the natural, beautiful originality of a kiss.
Rose was now standing in the most dangerous position on the ship, with an equally risky posture. Her body seems to be about to “petrify”, but it represents a free release from a forced marriage. But in the end, it’s still not an easy kiss to enjoy, either for the character or the viewer.
