Josh Groban Treasures His Onscreen Kiss With Emma Stone

“After one of our scenes, the directors said, ‘This is feeling a little goofy. Let’s try this with a kiss at the end.’ And I thought, ‘Holy s—! I’ve never kissed on-camera before. What do I have to do? I didn’t take that class in college.’ Emma’s just this total pro. She pulls out her…
