'Hairspray' star Amanda Bynes devours handfuls of breath freshening mints before her screen kisses.
The 21-year-old actress has to kiss her co-star Elijah Kelley in the new movie - based on the hit Briadway musical - but was paranoid she had bad breath before puckering up.
Amanda confessed: "Elijah is a good kisser but we're just friends so it was a bit weird - it was like kissing your brother.
"At least we didn't have to worry about bad breath, we were always eating minty Listerine strips just in case!"
Although she was happy to smooch with Elijah, Amanda would never kiss her other co-star, 19-year-old 'High School Musical' actor Zac Efron, because it would be "gross".
She said: "I wouldn't want to have kissed Zac, and that's the truth. He's a lot younger than me and snogging him would be gross! He's a really nice guy but he does all the gross things that guys do!"
