Actresses Necar Zadegan and Tracie Dinwiddie have puckered up big time for their roles in the new movie Elena Undone -- and their soon to be famous lip-lock has now landed them in the record books as owners of the longest kiss in cinema history.
The film, which deals with a well-known lesbian writer falling in love with a pastor's wife was conceived by filmmaker Nicole Conn after her partner wondered why there weren't more lesbian films being made. The idea of the record-breaking kiss, however, didn't come until later.
Conn recounts the story of the kiss' conception by explaining that it came to her after a long day of script revisions. The writer-director felt she was overthinking things and decided to revisit her emotions instead. "I began to remember falling in love with Marina and let all the delicious moments that sweep over you when you first fall in love rush back over me ... the most memorable and easily most exquisite moment was that first kiss ... that kiss that feels like you have lived inside it forever."
See if Conn can relive that moment through her film -- or just watch two attractive women make out -- after the jump.
Armed with the revelation, Conn hit up Google and soon discovered the longest onscreen kiss -- one organic to the film -- was a 3:06 smooch between Jane Wyman and Regis Toomey in You're in the Army Now. Apparently, some people dispute the validity of this, because Wyman and Toomey had their lips "glued together" to make it work. One other film, Kids in America, beat Wyman and Toomey in 2005 -- boasting a kiss that lasted 5:57, but it was not organic to the film -- and can be seen during the movie's credits. Conn has outdone this scene with her new extended kiss-cam moment – by a whole 18 seconds. She says her actresses gave it their all and that the kiss "is equally sweeping, emotional, romantic and erotic. It is what every first true love kiss should be - endlessly breathtaking." Agreed! That it's now in the record books seems to be mere icing on the cake.
