On film sets, lots of funny things often happen. We knew that there were mass filming secrets, but there are also small unforeseen events that end up pleasing everyone. The best example remains the unplanned kisses on set which are often jokes made by the actors to the directors and which are then kept in the editing.

The kiss between Claire and Owen was not planned in the original scenario but the director found it interesting to integrate it at the last moment. The astonishment scene with the children saying “Who is that? was later reworked to fit the new script.
2. Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams – American Bluff
In american bluff, the characters of Sydney and Rosalyn have a heated argument and end up kissing quite aggressively. this kiss was not in the script but Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence submitted the idea to the director who agreed to give it a shot.
3. Woody Harrelson and Elizabeth Banks in The Hunger Games
In the last movie The Hunger Games, Haymitch quickly kisses Effie goodbye and that kiss wasn’t really planned. The initiative apparently comes from actor Woody Harrelson and the scene was a hit with the film crew.
4. Indira Varma and Gemma Whelan in Game of Thrones
In season 7 of Game Of Thrones, Yara Greyjoy and Ellaria Sand begin to cuddle in the hold of a boat after a long discussion. This kiss was not specifically planned in the text but the two actresses decided that it fit well with the moment. The scene was ultimately kept for editing.
5. Max Greenfield and Jake Johnson in New Girl
We have already seen many cut scenes and bloopers from sitcoms where the actors, who have become friends in life, kiss each other for fun (in How I Met Your Mother notably). In New Girl, Max Greenfield who plays Schmidt tries many times to kiss for fun his friend Jake Johnson who plays Nick. Some of those scenes were kept in the edit because that’s the kind of friendship the director wanted for his characters.
6. Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson in Lost In Translation
Sofia Coppola, director of Lost In Translation, revealed several times to the press that the ending kiss between Bob and Charlotte was not planned in the script. Indeed, Bill Murray was just asked to make Charlotte’s character laugh to wipe away her tears and Murray took it a whole different direction. If you want my very personal opinion, I think the movie would have been better without that kiss to keep that ambiguous relationship forever platonic.
7. Emily Blunt and Tom Cruise in Edge of Tomorrow
In the film Edge of Tomorrow, the scriptwriters had abandoned the idea of a kiss between the main characters, for lack of a favorable moment in the scenario. Indeed, the team thought that a kiss in the middle of the apocalypse would seem forced or inappropriate, but Emily Blunt did not give up on the idea. It is finally her, when saying goodbye to the character of Cage, who improvises this kiss adored by all.
8. Dylan O’Brien and Holland Roden in Teen Wolf
Before this famous kiss on the cheek in Teen Wolf, no one imagined a Stiles-Lydia couple in the series. This innocent kiss quickly fueled everyone’s imagination and it was actually not in the script at all. It was Dylan O’Brien, the actor who played Stiles, who improvised this moment.
