An Awkward On-Screen Kiss... For Depp

by at . Comments

Keira Knightley shares a passionate kiss with Johnny Depp in the upcoming, highly-anticipated Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, but for one them, the experience was unbelievably awkward.

Depp, who plays the affable and off-the-wall Capt. Jack Sparrow, believes any film kiss is bound to be uncomfortable to shoot, but considered this one more so than most.

  • Keira Knightley Picture

"Any kind of scene like that whenever you're doing that sort of thing, it's always unbelievably awkward especially having met Keira when she was 17 years old," Depp said. "But regardless of that it's always awkward so you kind of just make light of it; she was a good sport and we just kid of did what we had to do, that's the gig."

Keira was a good sport too, of course, considering most 21-year old women like her would love to be in the same situation.

"I couldn't ask for a better kissing scene with Johnny Depp actually, I think my 14-year old self was yelping with pleasure," she said. "It was fantastic! What more can a girl ask for? I've got Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom and I get to kiss both of them. It's wonderful!"

Knightley won't reveal whether this infamous lip-lock will interfere with the relationship her character, Elizabeth Swann, has with Orlando's Will Turner. Bloom has also stated, stunningly, that he has enjoyed smooching Keira throughout the Pirates trilogy.

"It's not an ordinary kiss, it's a kiss with a twist, which is great," she said.

yeah, i'd have to say "GO KEIRA!" wanted a kiss from johnny depp (which i mean, who wouldnt?) & got one. although, she seemed fascinated by it johnny kinda ruined it by saying it was "awkward" but we all know he ENJOYED it also. ;) right? haha.


man i really hope johnny and keira hook up in the nex movie screw orlando if they don't hook up i'd be pissed


Wow! This is amazing I bet Jack and Elizabeth are going to be a couple in the next movie. Screw you Orlando, he was first! Tehehe I love You Johnny, I would sell myself for you!


That's so funny that she has a huge crush on him. I wonder how many times they had to shoot the scene. I bet Keira started messing up the lines on purpose to kiss him some more. I can't wait until Pirates 3!!!


Awww! I think it is so cute of Kiera Knightley to want kiss Jhonny, who can blame her, he is one very sexy man. I really hope that she isn't upset that Jhonny Depp saw the kiss as "unbelievably awkward," she would be distraught, I'm sure, I certainly would be. She seems to really have the hots for him and really enjoyed shooting that scene. I cannot imagine why he thought it was awkward she is so beautiful, and so what if she is young, that should be a good thing. Orlando doesn't seem to mind her. In the next movie, there will definately be mixed feelings between Elizebeth and Jack when they rescue him. And, Will will surely be in question of their relationship. Pity. I personally love the romance portion of the movie. I CAN"T WAIT UNTIL PIRATES 3!!!
