Kate Beckinsale’s first kiss was a “horrible experience.”
In a new interview, the “Underworld” actress told the story of kissing a man who had just eaten a meaty pizza beforehand.
A “militant vegetarian” at the time, Beckinsale said she was surprised to have kissed anyone after that.
“All my friends had done it. I thought, well, I'm going to have to kiss somebody, otherwise I'm weird,” the actress continued.
“I was at a party and the person who wanted to kiss me was American, of course. It led me on a terrible path I'm now stuck on.”
Beckinsale then spoke about the traumatic experience she encountered with meat.
“I was a really militant vegetarian at the time and he had just eaten a meat lovers pizza. Massive trauma,” she noted.
“I thought kissing was a dry experience but as it was happening I realized, oh, there's all that kind of wet activity inside the other person's mouth with lots of bits of sausages in as well.”
Moments after the kiss, Beckinsale phoned her mother to lament over the experience.
“I called my mom and said, ‘I need to go home now, I've had a horrible experience with meat.’”
Beckinsale thanked her mother on Instagram, writing, “As always thank you to my mum for rescuing me from meat loving Americans in a Peugeot.”
