It may be a week after Valentine's Day, but love is still in the air. Check out the stories below to in which celebrities recall their first kisses.
10. Carly Rae Jepson
How could “This Kiss” singer Carly Rae Jepson not make the list? The Canadian pop-sensation claims that she waited until she was 17 for her first smooch! She said to MTV News, “He was a jazz singer named Branden Call. Nice guy, sweet guy. We still keep in touch on Facebook.”
9. Zac Efron
Unlike Carly, Zac was apparently an early bloomer! His first kiss was back in fifth grade in a tree fort. Efron told Seventeen, “It was over a game of Truth or Dare, but it turned into ‘make out with the other person.’ I was like the only boy and there were a bunch of girl up there. I was pretty stoked.” Guess Zac was a lady’s man even back in grade school!
8. Mario Lopez
According to The Examiner, the teen heartthrob claims his first kiss was with the one and only Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas! The two met on the set of TV show Kids Incorporated where he bought her perfume before laying one on her. Lopez says, “she has stayed just as sweet as when we were kids.” Awwww!
7. Leighton Meester
Before she was the clever and funny Blair Waldorf, Leighton Meester was just an awkward teenager like the rest of us! “I was 16, the guy I knew through friends from school, he was walking me home from the movies, and I honestly was so nervous and I couldn’t believe I was getting my first kiss, so I don’t remember much else but turning around and running home,” she describes to Zimbio. Poor Leighton!
6. Hugh Jackman
The Les Miserables star Hugh Jackman was just nine years old when he had his first kiss! According to Girls Talkin Smack, he remembers thinking, “If I don’t kiss a girl before I go to this school, I won’t get to kiss a girl.” So he got proactive! Since his friend had told him that classmate Sarah Dowsett kisses, he decided to ask her “Do you want to go down to the bush and kiss?” And success!
5. Reese Witherspoon
The legally blond recalls that her first kiss was back in fifth grade with a boy named Graham who she “thought she was in love with.” After that, things apparently went downhill, however. “He broke my heart and told everyone that I was flat-chested and that’s why he didn’t like me anymore,” she said according to Zimbio. It all worked out fine, as the two remain friends on Facebook.
4. Christian Bale
Before he was Batman, Christian Bale used to attend the circus with his mother, who worked as a clown and dancer. When he was just seven years old, he received his first kiss from a young Polish trapeze artist, Barta, reported Zimbio.
3. January Jones
Mad Men star January Jones told Zimbio that she was “a late bloomer.” She explains, “I was 15 and we kissed in the basement. I think he put his hand on my boob, too. He pushed the envelope a little. I wasn’t ready for that.”
2. Justin Bieber
Justin claims his first kiss was extremely “awkward.” He told People, “I was, like, 11 or 12. And I was on a snowhill and it was late and we were all cold and I was, like, with this girl and we were together and then I kissed her.” Luckily his first kiss with ex Selena Gomez went a little smoother as Justin claims it was the best kiss of his life.
1. Carrie Underwood
In September of last year Carrie decided to give a 12-year-old fan the best moment of his life by giving him his first kiss. According to The Huffington Post, she called him on stage during a concert in her Blown Away tour and asked him to pucker up. Ok, ok, so that probably wasn’t Carrie’s first kiss, but its still pretty adorable!
