Valentine's Day Special: Hollywood's 10 Most Seductive Food Scenes (NSFW)
Valentine's Day is almost here. You're either exchanging heavy eye contact with your sweetheart and splurging on an overpriced prix fixe menu or you're fantasizing about couples like that getting food poisoning. Why let the epic pressure of the holiday get to you when you can be seduced by food? We rounded up 10 food-as-seduction movie scenes to get you in the mood because the blindfolded taste test in Mostly Martha is way more satisfying than anything out of The Notebook. Foodgasms are the real deal, so let's whet that appetite. Sit back and treat yoself.
9 1/2 Weeks
10. Jamon Jamon (1992)
Silvia (Penelope Cruz) and Raul (Javier Bardem), an underwear model Silvia's would-be mother-in-law sends to destroy her engagement, have a romp. He tells her that one of her breasts tastes like tortilla de patatas (omelette) and the other one tastes like jamon serrano (ham). Green Eggs with Ham must send this guy over the edge.
9. 9 ½ Weeks (1986)
Mickey Rourke turns on the charm when he feeds Kim Bassinger a strawberry, Vicks cough medicine, a noodle, Jello, and a jalapeño pepper, which he lets her wash down with milk. He tops things off with a downpour of honey, which he rubs all over her legs.
8. Like Water for Chocolate (1992)
Tita serves it up for her suitor with your garden variety recipe like rose petals from the bouquet he brought, quail, and some of her blood. Resourceful.
