39 Times Actors Refused To Kiss Their Costar On Camera
Kirk Cameron refused to kiss Erin Bethea in Fireproof
Kirk has done his fair share of kissing scenes on screen, but that was all before he became an evangelical Christian and married his former Growing Pains costar, Chelsea Noble. After that point, he’d promised to never kiss any else out of respect for his wife. So when he had to do a kissing scene with his love interest in Fireproof, the producers came up with a creative solution.
Kirk revealed: “Because I have a commitment not to kiss any other woman, my wife Chelsea came in to the set and wore the dress my character’s wife wore. We shot the scene in silhouette, so when I kiss my wife, I’m actually kissing my wife and honoring our marriage. It’s a personal commitment I have made to my wife.”
