'Twilight' Edward and Bella kiss makes Top 50 classic kisses list


The steamy "Twilight" kiss between Edward and Bella is getting its due.

The kiss made the LA Times magazine's Top 50 cinematic kisses -- at No. 49. But Twihards, don't get outraged. The kisses are listed chronologically -- most recent films near the end -- not according to merit or other romantic criteria.

The chemistry in the scene is amazing with Edward (Robert Pattinson) wanting to kiss Bella (Kristen Stewart) tenderly, but still having to overcome his natural vampiric urges to, well, drink her blood.

Edward and Bella are in good company. The list starts in 1896 with "The Kiss" and also includes iconic kisses from "Gone With the Wind," "From Here to Eternity," "Lady and the Tramp," "The Godfather Part II" and "Titanic."

The list even has some of Zap2it's best kissing scenes in the rain films, including "Breakfast at Tiffany's," "Spider-Man" and "The Notebook."

Video clips of each kissing scene can be found at LA Times magazine.

Do you think that the "Twilight" kiss is a classic?

  1. Yeah, I think it ranks as a classic kiss. Bella and Edward to some are iconic characters and the hesitation, restraint and anticipation in their first kiss is classic in of itself. But also it was how it was done, in the highly intimate setting of Bella's bedroom, at night, with the unique hidden desire of bloodlust ever present.
