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.

"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.

I think that it is really cute of Kiera to want to kiss Jhonny, it is like a little girl's crush. It was really well acted and did not look one bit awkward. The kiss really made the movie juicey! I am concerned about Elizabeth and Will's relationship, though, I guess I'll just have to wait and see! (unfortuately)
