Robert Pattinson’s Edward Cullen and Kristen Stewart’s Bella Swan kiss in Twilight was included in the Los Angeles Times magazine’s top 50 movie kisses ever. Okay, so a) they were placed at No. 49 (well, the list is chronological) b) it’s old news (Feb ‘10) to everyone but me and perhaps a handful of secluded aborigines in Papua New Guinea.
But I love the photo and decided to mention the (old) news here. Above is that crucial moment before Edward’s and Bella’s lips actually meet. Those precious pre-smooching seconds can be even more arousing — emotionally, I mean — than the actual kissing. At least that’s my opinion.
In case you’re wondering: the Times magazine list begins with the 1896 short film The Kiss and ends with the Carey Mulligan–Peter Sarsgaard kiss in An Education. Not surprisingly, the vast majority of kisses are from Hollywood productions, but there are a handful of international kisses as well.
Among the other iconic kisses on the list are those found in Son of the Sheik (Rudolph Valentino and Vilma Banky), Gone with the Wind (Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh), Notorious (Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman), Duel in the Sun (Jennifer Jones and Gregory Peck), and From Here to Eternity (Deborah Kerr and Burt Lancaster).
Also, Lady and the Tramp (the two doggies and the spaghetti), Planet of the Apes (Charlton Heston and Kim Hunter under simian makeup), Sunday, Bloody Sunday (Peter Finch and Murray Head), Titanic (Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet), and Brokeback Mountain (Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal).
