Kissing Robert Pattinson Too Easy, Actor Tom Lennon Insists

Interview5/4/2009

"I Love You, Man" co-star Tom Lennon isn't surprised that "Twilight" couple Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are up for Best Kiss at the MTV Movie Awards, but frankly, he thinks his kiss with Paul Rudd is more deserving of the Golden Popcorn."Pattinson, Stewart — no doubt some great Frenching going on, and I respect that, but for level of difficulty, if this was the Olympics, kissing Robert Pattinson is like a three on the difficulty," Lennon told MTV News. "There's no trick to doing that. I don't know why you get awards for kissing Robert Pattinson. You're not going to find anybody down in Times Square that's gonna run up and wanna kiss me. Rudd did, and that's points for difficulty."Lennon furthered his bid to win by arguing that the two guys worked really hard to get the kiss right. "What you see onscreen in 'I Love You, Man' is not just the first take of that kiss. We did that kiss no less than 30 times from three different angles. I went for tongue. A lot of people wouldn't have done that."He added that "every single take we would try to change the kiss just the slightest bit." Which kiss made it into the film? The one he likes to call the "death blow," mixed with some "creepy" eye contact. It's only a matter of time before we find out if it was also a win with the voters.
