It's hard to imagine Bryan Cranston as anything other than one of the most talented actors in Hollywood. His role as Walter White, a genius chemist turned maniacal drug lord, on "Breaking Bad" garnered him legions of fans, critical praise and plenty of hardware during awards season.

He's been in the business for over three decades and he makes good acting look easy. But just like any other Hollywood hopeful, Cranston had to practice. He started taking acting classes as a teenager and revealed to Parade Magazine why he'll never forget his first cringe-worthy love scene.

"My first day in acting class, I was issued a scene that said, 'A teenage couple is making out on a park bench,'" Cranston said. "When we were called up, I went to kiss the girl, and she was on me -- embrace, passion, I'm dizzy, I'm lost."

The hot and heavy make-out session doesn't sound too terrible, but it's what Cranston did next that makes his first encounter with faked romance so memorable.

"At the break I said to her, 'Do you want to have lunch sometime?'" Cranston said. "She looked at me like I was a lost puppy and said, 'Oh, no, no, no. I have a boyfriend.' I would have bet anything she was into me."

Poor Heisenberg!
