Or: Most recently, John Travolta and Kelly Preston trying to convince us that they are a real heterosexual couple at the “Savages” premiere. It ain’t working. Does John know he’s supposed to put his lips on her lips, not in them? You can tell they haven’t been practicing their lip lock very often. Or EVER.
