Naya Rivera on Glee Love Scenes: Is It Easier to Kiss Women or Men?
Naya Rivera (Santana) has locked lips with guys and girls alike over the years on Glee, though it’s her “sweet lady kisses” with Heather Morris (Brittany) that tend to get fans the most excited of all.
So when Naya stopped by E! News to chat about Glee and her new single, “Sorry,” host Terrence J had to inquire about her on-screen romance scenes. Did she find it easier to kiss guys like co-star Mark Salling (Puck) or her real-life pal, Heather?
“On that show, I’ve had to kiss both women and men, and I would say that it was easier to kiss the women,” Naya says. Hear that, Heather? Sweet lady kiss win out! (Also... sorry, Mark.)
But with Heather off the show for the foreseeable future — she’s due to give birth to her first child later this month — Naya will be getting a new on-screen love interest to lock lips with. Her name is Dani, and she’ll be played by pop star Demi Lovato!
Host Terrence J seemed pretty excited about this. “She’s going to be playing your love interest, so guys get to watch these two hot creatures... is that what we’re going to see?” he asked.
“Yeah,” Naya replied. But when Terrence asked about a love scene between the girls, Naya put the brakes on that. “There is no love scene. Well, there is no love scene yet.”
Here’s where we’re confused. Naya already joked with Access Hollywood that she and Demi have practiced kissing to prepare for their scenes together, but she’s never explicitly confirmed that they kissed. So when she says they haven’t had a love scene, does she just mean that the characters haven’t hooked up yet? Or have they really not locked lips on screen yet?We seriously hope it’s the former, because we were getting seriously excited about that kiss!
