Cranston, Louis-Dreyfus share passionate Emmys kiss

Bryan Cranston and Julia Louis-Dreyfus did more than appear together onstage Monday night — they shared a long, passionate kiss.

Cranston and Louis-Dreyfus — who were also featured together in a recent Emmys promo video — got a little cozy in front of the cameras when Louis-Dreyfus approached the stage to accept her Emmy award for outstanding lead actress in a comedy series.

The “Breaking Bad” star intercepted the “Veep” star before she reached the stage, giving her a pretty serious smooch.


Earlier in the night when the pair presented an award, Louis-Dreyfus joked that Cranston resembled her boyfriend on “Seinfeld,” and Cranston replied that it was indeed him playing that part. Louis-Dreyfus wasn’t exactly believing him, so Cranston obviously needed to refresh her memory.

Cranston later won the Emmy for oustanding lead actor in a drama series for playing Walter White on “Breaking Bad.”
