As Cher once proclaimed in “The Shoop Shoop Song,” “If you wanna know if he loves you so, it’s in his kiss.” And since we’re big fans of romance around here – from iconic romantic comedies to sexy dramas – you might not be surprised that we’re also fans of big, bold onscreen kisses. From tentative first kisses that cement a growing love, to moments of deep passion that make our toes curl, to love declarations that make us cheer, there are so many types of movie kisses that we love.

Perhaps not surprisingly, there are some actors who come up on our list again and again. Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams gave us some of the greatest movie kisses of all time in “The Notebook,” but Gosling also had some iconic smooches in “Crazy Stupid Love” and “Blue Valentine,” as did McAdams in “About Time” and “The Vow.” Other actors who made the list multiple times? Heath Ledger, Tom Hanks, Carey Mulligan, Colin Firth, Sandra Bullock, and many more.

Ahead, we rounded up some of our absolute favorite movie kisses of all time. See which iconic lip locks made our list.
