Selma Blair, Sarah Michelle Gellar Tries To Recreate The Epic Kissing Scene
While there are many reunions happening in the entertainment industry, Selma Blair and Sarah Michelle Gellar's smooch turned out to be one of its kind. Yes, the actresses who shared a kiss on-screen in Cruel Intentions, which was released in 1999, had revisited the popular scene once again.
Gellar and Blair won MTV Movie Award for Best Kiss in 2000, and now, after two decades, the stars are back again to recreate the legendary kiss. However, there is something in between them, the COVID-19 pandemic.
Although the ongoing pandemic also couldn't stop these two ladies from staying away from one another, virtually. The 43-year-old actress jokingly referred to their kiss as one of the most awarded kisses in cinema history. She also asked everyone not to Google about it as she already did.
Blair noted the reason behind the kiss became so popular was that the people could relate to it, and it also had a shock value involved. She went on to explain the reason for the audience feeling comfortable watching it.
"It was a catalyst for so many young people to help them realize certain aspects of their sexuality and help make people comfortable to be who they really are,” the 48-year-old actress explained.
Gellar agreed that the kiss was "super-hot," while she also noted how the dynamics shifted towards acceptance and representation in pop culture. Blair also agreed and laughed loud, saying that Gellar isn't wrong about the acceptance.
The fun part of the video begins when both the actresses lean in for recreating the kiss one more time, but they failed because there was a thin glass in between. The sheet of glass wasn't visible throughout the conversation because of the camera angle, but as soon as they went for the kiss, the sheet blocked their lips immediately.
After failing at the kiss, Gellar looked at the camera, referring to the ongoing pandemic and asked everyone to stay safe, and prayed for 2020 to end soon. The film series also starred Ryan Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon.
The kissing scene was based on teaching Blair’s character, Cecile Caldwell, how to kiss someone else by Gellar’s character Kathryn Merteuil. Since then, both actresses have been friends in real life, and from time to time, they have been recreating many PDA moments.
A couple of months back, the I Know What You Did Last Summer star posted a picture of Blair and herself kissing through the masks. The actresses were together to celebrate Blair's birthday on June 23.
