Remember being nervous about your first kiss?
Let's face it, practising on your own hand is never sufficient preparation for the real thing.
Now, we're sure that Beyonce and her man Jay-Z are well past the point of needing to perfect their own particular snogging style.
But that didn't help Miss Knowles when she puckered up for her very first screen kiss - with co-star Jamie Foxx.
The singer had to be shown how to snog - actor style - for the film Dreamgirls because she wasn't sure what to do.
She said, "I guess you could say we had a love scene. We kissed. Now, I'm a singer/songwriter, that's what I did first — I didn't start out going to acting classes and people-kissing classes.
"So that's all still new to me. Working with my acting coach made it easier. I just thought it was necessary for the character, we have to establish that they're married.
"Jamie was very professional, it was quick, and you know, it is what it is."
In the film, Beyonce plays soul singer Deena Jones and Jamie is Curtis Taylor Jr, her husband.

Pop star Britney Spears hopes to lose all those pounds soon after the baby is born..
Britney Spears says she can't wait to get back in shape after the birth of her second child. The 24-year-old star, who is expecting her second child in September, admitted to Harper's Bazaar magazine that during pregnancy "you don't feel the most beautiful all the time".
For the Harper's shoot, she dispensed with clothes altogether to pose naked, baring her bulging belly.
She said pregnancy was "empowering" but admitted she felt unprepared for the motherhood and "paranoid" when she was expecting her first child, Sean Preston. Britney told the magazine it was different the second time round.
"This one, I was like, I've just got to wing it," she said. "It was weird for me at first because of who I am. Wherever you go, they expect you to look a certain way. I'm not supposed to be this big huge pregnant superstar."
After the baby is born she plans to get her body back into fighting shape for a performing comeback.
"I'm going to get really intense with it," Britney promised. "I'm so proud of Kevin. He's been working so hard on his own album since I got pregnant with Preston. I'm so lucky. He's a doll; he's adorable."
The singer said 10-month-old 'rocker kid' Sean Preston was the inspiration for the tots' clothes line she is designing. "Hopefully, next year we'll have a fashion show, maybe at Disney World," she said.
