As part of their Great Performers series, now in it’s 5th year, The New York Times gives us 9 Kisses. Watch as some of Hollywood’s hottest talent from the likes of Julianne Moore and Rosario Dawson to Benedict Cumberbatch and Reese Witherspoon embrace in a series of intimate, wordless encounters.

See the other videos below.

Which is your favourite? I’m loving Shailene Woodley (how ebeautifulis she?) and Jack O’Connell, Julianne Moore and John Lithgow, and Steve Carrell and Laura Dern.


Shailene Woodley & Jack O’Connell

Watch these two spa up a sweat, I’m becoming a little obsessed with Shailene and here androgynous look, so strong yet so feminine, can’t wait to see more of her


Kristen Stewart & Chadwick Boseman 

Kristen fan girls the shit out of Chadwick’s face


Jason Schwartzman & Patricia Arquette

A convenient gust of wind blows these two together and they bond over Arquette’s beret


David Oyelowo and Timothy Spall

Learn how to win an arm wrestle


Gugu Mbatha-Raw & Miles Teller

These two are pretty much unknown to me, apart from Gugu’s star turn in Belle. It’s a beautiful video, it looks like the wedding was a bit too much for Teller


Rosario Dawson & Jenny Slate 

The New Year countdown begins and the party is in full swing for these two


John Lithgow & Julianne Moore 

I love this one, a bit of ‘daddy dancing’, caution to the wind and that cringingly awkward courting ritual on the dancefloor


Steve Carell & Laura Dern

Totally sweet, these two are caught in that first date nightmare; to kiss or not to kiss?


Don’t forget to check out the making of video, too.
