Can you imagine having your very first kiss on a television set with tons of people watching? For Dylan Sprouse, that’s exactly what happened. He and fellow Disney Channel alum Selena Gomez shared their very first smooches with one another – and yes, it was documented on television. Talk about a high pressure situation!
“I wasn’t very successful with women for a long time,” Dylan said in a recent interview with Young Hollywood. “I think my first kiss was on a set and I think it might have been with Selena Gomez.”
While he didn’t sound like he fully remembered – let us confirm that this is exactly what happened. In fact, Selena wasn’t just Dylan’s first kiss – it was Selena’s first one too.
Selena previously dished about the kiss to TigerBeat, explaining, “I actually leaned in to kiss him, and I had my eyes closed a little too early and I ended up missing like half of his lip. So it ended up being the most awkward kiss in the world. But I was 12 so it was okay and it was good.”
It’s super awkward to think about, but believe it or not, some of your other favorite Disney Channel celebrities were able to brave through the cameras and make their kissing scenes look super easy. Nope, Dylan and Selena weren’t the only ones. His twin brother Cole Sprouse had his first kiss with Debby Ryan. The two were so convincing as lovebirds on The Suite Life on Deck – especially when they smooched! But surprisingly enough, Debby confirmed some of those kissing scenes were super awkward to film.
“[Kisses] with Cole were so weird because we’re at a point where we’re like brother and sister, we mess with each other and he’ll be like, ‘Hey Debby, just so you know I ate a tuna sandwich’ and I’m like “Awesome Cole! I just put on lip gloss. Action!'” she said.
We can only imagine what it felt like to kiss a co-star so publicly for the first time. But in the end, they did an amazing job! Check out the gallery below for more real life first kisses that happened on Disney Channel.
