Hey, did you hear? Sandra Bullock and Scarlett Johansson sucked face at the MTV Movie Awards, and it was awesome. Because two hot girls kissing, no matter how craven the publicity stunt, is always awesome. In this feature, I decided to share my 20 favorite same-sex kisses in pop culture history, with video. Because I’m a dude who believes in gay rights like whoa.
Sandra Bullock and Scarlett Johansson – MTV Movie Awards
Mischa Barton and Olivia Wilde – The O.C.
Back when Mischa Barton was actually hot and not a walking trainwreck, she hooked up with Olivia Wilde on The O.C. for some foxy prime-time lesbionic action. Here’s a clip of their first kiss.
Angelina Jolie and Elizabeth Mitchell – Gia
A pre-Brad Angelina made her bones in this HBO movie about supermodel Gia Carangi, who was a notorious bisexual heroin addict and died at 26. What a downer! Thankfully, there’s Angelina’s perfect lips kissing girls in it to cheer you up.
Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair – Cruel Intentions
Cruel Intentions is one of the sassiest, trashiest teen movies ever made, and it’s almost impossible to pick a favorite scene from it. Who am I kidding – this intense makeout is the best. There’s even drool in it!
Tiffany-Ambier Thiessen and Jamie Pressly – Fastlane
Fastlane was a short-lived TV series created by shlockmeister The McG about two undercover cops with a massive array of confiscated toys to use. Oh, and it also had chicks making out a lot. Maybe The McG isn’t such a bad dude after all.
Alyson Hannigan and Amber Benson – Buffy The Vampire Slayer
Willow and Tara from Buffy are probably the most well-rounded lesbian couple to ever hit non-cable TV. Here’s a montage of their makeouts.
t.A.T.u – “All The Things She Said
Basically the only reason anybody on Earth ever cared about Russian pop duo Lenia Katina and Yulia Volkova, better known as t.A.T.u, was the incestual lesbian subtext running through their early appearances. Us gullible Americans thought they were sisters who made out, but it was all a genius scheme by a Russkie music impresario. Well played, sir!
Kristin Scott Thomas and Emmanuelle Seigner – Bitter Moon
I don’t want to give any kind of props to Roman Polanski (and in fact believe that he should be in hella jail) but he sure can lens a good girl-kissing-girl scene, as he does here in his thriller Bitter Moon.
Denise Richards and Neve Campbell – Wild Things
Remember when Denise Richards was a hot little thing – before Charlie Sheen and reality TV turned her into a lunatic? Wild Things had her at the peak of her powers, and this makeout scene with Party of Five’s Neve Campbell is molten hot.
