They're too racy, too raw. There's enough tongue in them to make a director blush — and so much grabby-hands that the director, producer, and writer hit the ground in a dead faint. Or maybe it's just good suspense to deprive characters of some desperately needed mouth-on-mouth. The Blu-Ray release of The X-Files: Fight the Future brought with it some never-before-seen footage of Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny sucking serious face, so we dug up even more deleted scenes of makeout sessions that were too sexy for your screens. Warning: Eliza Dushku, David Tennant, Julianne Moore, Robert Downey, Jr., and a great deal of hotness within.
Sure, the Doctor (version II, anyway) eventually got to tell Rose Tyler he loved her, and they shared a nice smooch in Doctor Who's season 4 finale. But if you watched the Confidential, you know that actors David Tennant and Billie Piper provided much sweatier minutes of mackage than the two-second bit that was deemed appropriate for the kiddies. (I suggest watching it in slow motion for maximum shortness of breath.)
If you're not yet excited to see Eliza Dushku stretch her thespian legs in Joss Whedon's Dollhouse - or turned on by Dexter's Desmond Harrington - you certainly will be after this little firebomb of a clip. Wrong Turn may be from a dumb horror movie that pits college students against cannibalistic mountain men, but it's certainly got one scorching moment in it, and here's the proof.
Julianne Moore is something like the duchess of psychological sci-fi horror, with impressive stints in movies like Children of Men and Blindness (we won't talk about Evolution). In this deleted scene from The Forgotten, she and Dominic West can barely keep their hands off each other - and so they don't.
The Iron Man trailer seemed to promise us an onscreen meeting of the lips between Robert Downey, Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow, but it never quite happened. They did, however, film it, and this montage of set pictures gives us a glimpse of what could have been ... in Tony Stark's mouth.
All right, this last one isn't a kiss, but finding a cut kiss for this show would have been impossible: No kiss is too naughty for Torchwood. BBC Two did, however, draw the line at a Jack/Ianto crotch grab - so I guess it's a good thing we have the internet to show us the things that television won't dare to. John Barrowman and Gareth David-Lloyd are in top (and bottom) form in this thrilling deleted scene.
After all this, you're probably aching to run from your computer and snog the nearest warm body. Before you go, though, leave your own favorite cut, forbidden kisses. The world of sci-fi has been pioneering the liplock since Kirk and Uhura knocked noses in "Plato's Stepchildren," and we aren't about to stop now.
