London: Actor Colin Farrell says he enjoys doing kissing scenes in movies.

"It`s part of the gig and at the same time, kissing is lovely. So any time I get to kiss someone, that`s great," quoted the 35-year-old as saying.

"It`s always strange to kiss someone when you know they`re getting paid to kiss you back. That`s the most simple, mathematical way to put it," he added.

Farrell admits it can be "uncomfortable" getting closer with female co-stars on screen.

"When the clothes start coming off, though, that`s when it can get a bit uncomfortable. And then what do you fall back on? Humour," he said.
