This sweet kiss in Top Gun was actually not part of the original script. When Charlie (Kelly McGillis) told Maverick (Tom Cruise) that she didn't want anyone to find out about her feelings towards him, he interrupted the conversation with a passionate kiss. The director liked the new direction rather than the original one that took the conversation as a conclusion, so he chose to keep it in the film.

Before filming an iconic scene in A Room With A View, Carter (starred as Lucy) was asked to kiss her partner Julian (starred as George). She was only 18 years old and didn't have much experience with that. She said that it looked a little awkward because the kiss in the final version of the movie was entirely improvised. But it actually looks fine, doesn't it?
