Nothing is more Hollywood-memorable than kissing in the rain, two people driven by their desperate, yearning love for each other, unable to wait another second to kiss the object of their affection. (Plus it’s an awesome way to get attractive stars into clingy, wet clothes.) It remains to be seen if Safe Haven has a scene like The Notebook, but we imagine they'll get all wet somehow. Meantime, here are our favorite kissing-in-the-rain scenes.
Dear John: As a couple torn apart by time and circumstance, Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried find a moment to lock lips in this Nicholas Sparks romantic drama. If only we all looked so beautiful when trapped in a rainstorm!
The Notebook: In this Nick Cassavetes-directed Sparks tear-jerker, a torrential kiss in a climactic moment of the film finds Rachel McAdams leaping into Ryan Gosling’s eager arms as the two declare their love for one another.
4 Weddings and a Funeral: After serendipitously running into each other time and again at weddings and funerals across the country, Hugh Grant and Andie MacDowell cozy up to one another and share a romantic kiss in this classic British rom-com.
Chasing Amy: After fighting relentlessly about how they shouldn’t be together for a host of perfectly good reasons, Joey Lawrence Adams finally succumbs to her feelings and chases after Ben Affleck, kissing him passionately in the downpour.
Daredevil: Life imitates art, as now-married couple Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner lock lips on screen in the action hero movie <i>Daredevil</i>. Fun fact: The pair shared this kiss a full two years before they eventually married in 2005.
A Cinderella Story: Though she’s had a crush on her very own Prince Charming for ages, kissing Chad Michael Murray is still a fairy tale dream come true for Hilary Duff in this teen romance that puts a new spin on an old classic.
