It's an unspoken fact that in the 21st century, most people who are in romantic relationships are, sooner or later, going to compare themselves to the most beautiful celebrity couples they see on magazine covers. But even those celebrity couples are prone to their fair share of awkward moments and slip-ups, leading to several uncomfortable celebrity kisses caught on camera. With all of those red carpet appearances, it's not surprising that there is no shortage of awkward kisses between celebrities. 

This list is a compilation of times famous people were caught kissing on camera - only the moments aren't cute. These celeb kisses caught on camera may not even be between some of Hollywood's odd celebrity couples. So, without further ado, here are the most awkward kisses between celebrities to ever grace the stage, screen, or red carpet.

    During the 2003 VMAs, Madonna shared an extremely awkward kiss with Britney Spears. Then, she proceeded to just move forward to have another, equally uncomfortable kiss with Christina Aguilera. If the three singers were hoping to create an unforgettable moment, they certainly achieved that.

    Sandra Bullock strives to bring a fake celebrity rivalry to an end by sharing a kiss with Meryl Streep. After Bullock beat Streep for Best Actress at the Critics Choice Awards in 2010, following some sarcastic well-wishes from Streep, the actress decided to get even with Streep by kissing her in front of the entire world. What's make it awkward isn't necessarily Bullock doing it in the first place, as she seems fully committed to it. Rather, the fact that Streep clearly had no idea what was coming is what makes this moment cringeworthy.

    Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are in love and want the whole world to know it. That's been the mission statement of their romance from the very beginning, and it's only continued since then. However, when the two tried to showcase that in an intense kiss at the 2015 Grammys, it was all just a bit too much. Kanye was leaning into it too much while Kim looked a bit lost.

    Whether some people know it or not, Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson appear to be one of the happiest celebrity couples around. The two haven't ever been afraid of flaunting their affection for one another on social media throughout the years, either. But as this photo from Simpson's Twitter proves, that can sometimes lead to some weirdly staged lovey-dovey moments. Taken early on in their relationship, this photo is a bit hard to look at as it feels like something is off given their expressions.
