Married celebrities often find themselves in front of tons of photographers at premieres, parties, and on the red carpet. And thanks to bright lights, paparazzi and other everyday distractions, their shows of affection don't always go as planned!
Below, in honor of National Kissing Day on July 6, we've compiled some of the most cringe-worthy kisses between celebrity spouses. We hope they're not quite as awkward when the cameras are off!

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon
Nick Cannon looks a little unsure of what to do as his <a href="http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20198595,00.html" target="_blank">wife of five years,</a> Mariah Carey, goes to kiss him at the 2010 Academy Awards.

Although they married in 2011, they have been together for 29 years and have two children together.
John Travolta and Kelly Preston
John Travolta and Kelly Preston shared this strained kiss at a premiere in 2012, which was the first time the two stepped out publicly after Travolta was <a href="http://omg.yahoo.com/news/john-travolta--kelly-preston-share-awkward-kiss-amid-sexual-assault-allegations.html" target="_blank">accused of sexual assault</a> by a male Royal Caribbean employee.
Alec Baldwin and Hilaria Thomas
We're not sure exactly why Alec Baldwin decided to pick up wife Hilaria Thomas for this smooch at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.

Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon
Kevin Bacon looks completely ambivalent about getting a kiss from Kyra Sedwick, <a href="http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2286898/Kevin-Bacon-Hollywood-actor-discovers-wife-Kyra-Sedgwick-cousins.html" target="_blank">his wife of 25 years</a>, at the 2007 Emmy Awards.
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith
Will Smith is 14 inches <a href="http://xfinity.comcast.net/slideshow/entertainment-tinywomengiantmen/4/" target="_blank">taller than his wife</a> of 18 years, Jada Pinkett-Smith, so it's no wonder this kiss, at a premiere in 2006, looks a little awkward.

Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum, <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/05/31/channing-tatum-wife_n_3368924.html" target="_blank">married for four years,</a> share a peck at the 2013 Academy Awards.
