Today is International Kissing Day, which is an annual, worldwide celebration of all kinds of kisses. While kisses can range from a friendly peck on the cheek to a full-fledged, passionate make-out sesh, when it comes down to the most memorable kisses, the more romantic the better. In honor of International Kissing Day 2018, I'm rounding up my favorite on-screen lip-locks from this year's television shows and movies. From that first, highly anticipated smooch between a will-they-won't-they couple, to a celebratory proposal kiss shared by long-time TV favorites, the below list celebrates this special day by counting down the best on-screen kisses of 2018 (so far).
A few of these selections might even rival some of the best on-screen kisses of all time. These actors have chemistry so intense that I can't help but wonder if sparks are flying off-screen as well, à la Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling in The Notebook. Some major strides have been made in the last decade, thank goodness. With two same-sex couples on this list, TV and movie networks are finally starting to catch on to the fact that viewers want to see LGBTQ+ people represented in the media. So, without further ado, here are the nine best TV and movie kisses of 2018 so far. Warning: spoilers ahead.
