I can't imagine anything worse than being a private celebrity and then being plastered on the Kiss Cam at a basketball game, which is what happened to Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden, who married a little less than a month ago. And, although their wedding was very quick and hush hush to the public, it appears that now that the couple is married — out and proud, if you will — their PDA isn't considered a bad thing. Even when broadcast on a giant screen for all the world to see. Thankfully, according to People, the couple actually enjoyed the Kiss Cam moment as much as the crowd did. But Diaz and Madden's Kiss Cam wasn't the first celebrity couple captured. And they definitely won't be the last.
Kiss Cams are a really weird concept to me. After a few hours on YouTube, I'll usually find myself deep into the "how did I get here?" section of the video site, and that usually includes a compilation of Kiss Cam fails. Nothing is more uncomfortable than watching a couple hesitate to kiss on camera in front of an entire stadium, except when it's celebrities. Then, it gets even more uncomfortable. I mean, uncomfortable in the way that you can't stop watching, that is.
Here are some of the best celebrity (and political figure) Kiss Cams out there.
1. Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher
I mean, can these two BE any cuter?
2. Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel
JT really went for it, proving that, when it comes to a Kiss Cam, go big or go home.
3. Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez
Never forget these two.
4. POTUS and FLOTUS
May the phrase "Presidential SMOOCH" forever be engrained in your brain.
5. David Beckham and Daughter Harper
This will melt any icy exterior.
6. Adam Sandler and Jack Nicholson
A truly great bromance would never shy away from the kiss cam.
7. Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson
If Wilson's reaction to seeing herself on the screen (at about 0:51) doesn't prove that she and Hanks are the coolest couple ever, I don't know what will.
