  • Yeah, we'd kiss that.
For the Dec. 14 edition of The New York Times Magazine, photographer and director Elaine Constantine asked 18 of this year's biggest movie stars to pair off and smooch. Each couple was put in a specific situation with a bit of direction, and the resulting short films are magical—the chemistry between Benedict Cumberbatch and Reese Witherspoon is particularly electric.

Click here to watch the short films, here to see photos Constantine took of the stars, and here to read an article by journalist-film critic A.O. Scott about the history of kissing in cinema.

Wait! There's more... then check out the Dec. 17 edition of Boise Weekly, where our own journalist-film critic extraordinaire, George Prentice, takes a look at Cumberbatch in The Imitation Game and Witherspoon in Wild.
