For a while now, kissing has been a popular pastime, but over the last few years a particular sub-genre has emerged as perhaps the hottest gimmick in Hollywood: girl on girl. Katy Perry, for instance, based her entire career on one song about the benefits and potential downsides of smooching a fellow female. And now it seems Amanda Seyfried may be poised to follow in her footsteps.

That's because, as Britain's Daily Mail is reporting, Seyfried is back in the girl kissing game with her new movie 'Chloe.' This, of course, follows her widely publicized liplock with it-girl Megan Fox in the otherwise underwhelming 'Jennifer's Body' last fall.

But this time around, the tonsil hockey comes with a even twistier twist than plain old lesbianism: the object of Seyfried's affection is none other than Julianne Moore, who, at 49, is more than twice 24-year-old Seyfried's age ... and therefore old enough to be her mother.

The funny thing is, the plot of the movie is that a wife (Moore) attempts to prove that her husband (Liam Neeson) is cheating by hiring a sultry escort (Seyfried) to seduce him ... so how Moore and Seyfriend end up getting it on is beyond us. Not that we're complaining.

Sill, while the role seems perfectly in keeping with Seyfried's career arc, the move seems somewhat out of character for Moore. Though she has done some fairly racy material in the past (see: 'Boogie Nights'), the respected actress is better known for more sedate dramas such as 'The Hours' and 'The Shipping News.'

So why the decision to turn to edgier material? It's possible Moore is simply looking to broaden her acting horizons and in that sense 'Chloe' could just be the perfect follow-up to her acclaimed turn in the similarly gay-friendly 'A Single Man.' But where that film used sexuality as a launching point to examine changing societal attitudes, based on the trailer, 'Chloe' seems more interested in examining how hot it is when a cougar goes on the prowl for kittens.

But we'll let you judge for yourself: here's a look at the R-rated international trailer for 'Chloe,' which features pesky French subtitles, a peek at the makeout session ... and some not-so-safe-for-work nudity:



So what do you think? Is this just another case of sensationalism gone haywire? Or should we give the benefit of the doubt to Moore, co-star Liam Neeson and director Atom Egoyan, none of whom are known to go for the cheap gimmick in their work (although Egoyan has proven himself a fan of the girl-on-girl action -- see 'Where the Truth Lies')? Either way, one thing seems certain: This kissing thing is here to stay.
