39 Times Actors Refused To Kiss Their Costar On Camera
Jewel didn’t want to kiss Rob Lowe on The Lyon’s Den
Rob Lowe is a certified hunk, but he says Jewel wouldn’t kiss him on the show The Lyon’s Den. After Lowe himself insisted Jewel be cast as his love interest on-camera, Jewel was hesitant of getting kissy with him and even brought her then-BF to set when they were supposed to film a romantic scene. She was hesitant about kissing him — then asked for the scene to be scrapped altogether. Eventually, Jewel agreed to the scene, but the kiss was terrible.
Rob told Ellen DeGeneres, “[The show was] a parade of indignities, and the culminating blow, for me, was having the actress who didn’t want to kiss me in the love scene.” During the Comedy Central Roast of Rob Lowe, Jewel joked that she refused because she “didn’t know where his mouth had been.”
