Photographer Elaine Constantine directed 18 familiar faces in nine liplocks that are funny, touching, romantic and just a wee bit sexy. Check out all nine clips below!
Some of the celebs snogging for the camera are Marvel men Benedict Cumberbatch (sneaking a smooch with Reese Witherspoon) and Chadwick Boseman (getting tackled by Kristen Stewart), indie darlings Jason Schwartzman & Patricia Arquette, and funny couple Steve Carell & Laura Dern. Shailene Woodley & Jack O’Connell as well as Miles Teller & Gugu Mbatha-Raw romance alongside vets Julianne Moore & John Lithgow, while a few same-sex surprises were thrown in via Roasario Dawson & Jenny Slate and David Oyelowo & Timothy Spall.
