39 Times Actors Refused To Kiss Their Costar On Camera

Herizen F. Guardiola refused to kiss Justice Smith at first on The Get Down


Herizen F. Guardiola‘s big break was The Get Down and, despite starring on a show with that name, she never thought about the more intimate aspects of taking on a role. Co-star Justice Smith spilled the tea. “When I was reading, Baz [Luhrmann] was like ‘put down the scripts,’ and we had to do this cheesy thing — this hand thing instead. But then eventually Baz was like, ‘this isn’t working.’ And then just told Herizen [to kiss me].” But Herizen says, “I didn’t want to kiss him. I didn’t know him. I don’t just kiss people I don’t know. I don’t care what the situation is.” Though she’s gotten more used to the idea of smooching a stranger for a role, she insists, “I’m still gonna have to know something about the person before I kiss them.”

It’s a little different for Justice, “I didn’t realize how weird it was, until she made it weird… I’m like, ‘oh, kiss that person?’ Okay, cool, I’ll just go…’”
