WATCH: That Time Scott Caan Wanted To Kiss Paul Newman

Sometimes while cruising researching breaking news articles on the interweb, we come across a story we missed the first time around but which still manages to titillate us. Such is the case with this Extra interview with Scott Caan and Melanie Griffith from 2012 when the two actors were appearing together in a play in Los Angeles. At one point, they’re asked about their first screen kiss. Mrs. Antonio Banderas replies that it must have been with Gene Hackman or Paul Newman. Caan is quick to chime in that he wishes his first screen kiss was with Newman.

NewmanCaanOK, OK, it’s an innocent remark made in jest, but it’s kind of fun to think about one of today’s sexiest young actors locking lips with one of the most handsome stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood. It also reminded us about all the other straight male actors we’d like to see make out with one another on screen.

As an added bonus in the Extra interview, Melanie recalls a rather humbling audition that found her dancing in a bikini to the Rolling Stones’ “Start Me Up” trying to nab the lead in Flashdance. The jokes are too easy we’re going to skip them.

    Why didn’t Scott Caan want to kiss Tom Daley? Who has Tom Daley kissed lately?

  • scotshot

    Scott Caan is gay. Google him.

  • MikeE

    @Spike: Imagine if Tom Daley kissed Nick Gruber? I swear, Queerty would explode.

  • Jacob Jake

    Scott Caan only wanted to kiss Paul Newman one time?

  • Homophile

    What Scotshot said, everyone knows Scott Caan is on our team.

  • Mr. E. Jones

    I’m glad Caan never did. His father would have chased Newman off a balcony and sent him to his death.

  • Cagnazzo82

    Scott Caan was apparently arrested a while back for getting in a bar fight at a gay bar after another dude hit on his boyfriend. So yeah, he’s definitely batting for our team.

    And that comment about Paul Newman was definitely not a joke.

    Also, might I add, I think that would be a hot kiss ;)

    Well so much for tabloid fodder and fantasies about Scott. Online photos splashed everywhere of him and various girlfriends and no pics of even a mild bromance shown. Some people have a very active imagination!

  • Wingfield

    @mz.sam: yes, he was also on Chelsea lately somewhat recently and they talked about his girlfriend that lives with him in Hawaii while he’s filming his show. I think that bar story was fake like rod Stewarts belly full of j1zz fake story.

  • jckfmsincty

    He has such thin lips.

  • dougmc92

    there are rumors about Newman…he might have liked it….

  • Spike

    @MikeE: IF that were to happen, Tom and Nick would surely be Queerty’s Couple of the Decade.
