"Riverdale" gave Camila Mendes her first on-screen kiss, while Cristin Milioti is still ashamed about hers. (July 6)
CAMILA MENDES: I do.
CRISTIN MILIOTI: I do too.
CAMILA MENDES: It was the pilot of "Riverdale." First onscreen kiss. Unless you count a student film at NYU.
ANDY SAMBERG: I count it.
CAMILA MENDES: Do you?
ANDY SAMBERG: Yeah.
CAMILA MENDES: I don't want to talk about that.
- You brought it up.
CAMILA MENDES: I know. No, yeah, "Riverdale" in a closet with Archie. Yeah, first on screen.
CRISTIN MILIOTI: Mine was an indie film in Canada that we shot in Vancouver. And I didn't know-- do I share this?-- yeah, OK. And I didn't know-- they were like, action. And then I, like, went for it. And then he was like, whoa. And I felt horrible.
ANDY SAMBERG: Yeah, and you were like, what's wrong, dad?
CRISTIN MILIOTI: And I was like, don't blow this for me. We're rolling.
ANDY SAMBERG: We're acting.
CAMILA MENDES: It's a film.
CRISTIN MILIOTI: Yeah, it's going to get a release.
- Wait, so he wasn't expecting a kiss?
CRISTIN MILIOTI: No. Yeah, I didn't know. I just didn't know. I was like 22 or something. And I just--
CAMILA MENDES: They said action.
CRISTIN MILIOTI: They said action. And I just went for it as if I was, like, on a date, which is what the scene was or something. And it was supposed to be--
CAMILA MENDES: What are you supposed to be like, all right, I'm going to kiss you now.
CRISTIN MILIOTI: Exactly. It was like, is this how you kiss? Yeah, but anyway, he was like, whoa, whoa, whoa, stop. Which I totally respect. But I felt just awful.
CAMILA MENDES: Oh my God.
CRISTIN MILIOTI: Horrible. Could not be more embarrassed.
CAMILA MENDES: So embarrassing.
- Did you have to take an hour break? All right, we'll come back.
CRISTIN MILIOTI: Well, I just completely blacked out. And the rest of the day was-- who knows what happened. Like I was like, I'm so sorry. [FLUTTERING] And my spirit flew out of my body.
ANDY SAMBERG: That sounds right.
CRISTIN MILIOTI: Just shame spiral.
