While filming Baywatch, Zac Efron fell down and went head-first into the sand next to his co-star, the Rock. They were redoing the iconic slow-motion scene down the beach, bad sadly, he took the fall like that.
His thoughts when falling down were, “*Think cool thoughts*... run cool, hit ’em with that COOL #Baywatch run...” Although he fell quite awkwardly, he still managed to look cool while taking the tumble.

They’ve actually declared a lot of love to each other, but when it comes to the kissing scene, things are a bit different. Hemsworth revealed that anytime he had to kiss the actress, it was really uncomfortable. “She would make a point of eating garlic or tuna fish, something that was disgusting,” Lawrence responded to him right before the scene about what she ate and that she didn’t even brush her teeth.

Jennifer Lawrence shared that she was really vulnerable when doing a kissing scene with Chris Pratt in Passengers. She had to ask herself, “What have I done? He was married. It was going to be my first time kissing a married man, and guilt is the worst feeling in your stomach. I knew it was my job, but I couldn’t tell my stomach that.”
She even called her mom afterward for reassurance to ensure that it was okay to kiss Pratt. “That was the most vulnerable I’ve ever been.”

The actor met his costar just the day before that and admitted that it was uncomfortable because they had just met. “I woke up that morning, and I had a giant pimple on my bottom. I had to go to the makeup artist who I had also met that week and be like, ’Can we go in the other room, and you’ll put makeup literally on my behind?’”

Brad Pitt and Kirsten Dunst also had unhappy times in Interview with the Vampire. They were asked to kiss but it was just a peck. Still, even something as minor as a peck was unsetting for the actress.
“I remember Brad would watch lots of Real World episodes. He had this long hair. He was just a hippie-ish cool dude. 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.”

Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller didn’t enjoy the moment when they had to kiss each other on-screen in The Spectacular Now. Miles decided to drink Gatorade right before kissing his co-star, and she told him, “Are you serious? You’re going to kiss me after that?”
Indeed, it didn’t help the pair to work better, according to Miles, “She would take these Chinese herbal supplements, which tasted like dirt. And she would always eat them right before we had a kissing scene! We put stuff in our mouths, so we could offend each other.” The battle between them was still ongoing later.
