The iconic kiss in Spider-Man
The kiss scene between Tobey Maguirre and Kirsten Dunst in Spider-Man is one of the most iconic moments in the franchise. However, what many people do not know is that the protagonist had to endure a difficult situation while shooting the scene. Tobey revealed that he had to keep the mask on while water entered his nose, making it hard for him to breathe. Despite this, the kiss turned out to be one of the most memorable moments on the big screen.
The legendary Titanic kiss
James Cameron’s Titanic not only narrated the story of the ship’s sinking but also presented us with a beautiful love story between Jack and Rose.

The kiss scene between Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore in Ghost is one of the most tender and sad moments in film history. The moment they reunite after Sam’s death and sculpt with clay is unforgettable, leaving viewers in tears.
The romantic kiss in Pretty Woman
The kiss between Richard Gere and Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman is one of the most romantic moments in the film. In it, Edward asks Vivian, “And tell me… what happened when he climbed the tower and rescued her?” to which Vivian replies, “That she rescued him,” leading to a passionate embrace that left viewers swooning.
The longest kiss
The Guinness Record for the longest kiss goes to a Thai couple who held the record with a kiss lasting 58 hours, 35 minutes, and 58 seconds.
