MTV: Where's the Kiss between Joel and Elle?
MTV News asked J.J. Abrams the burning question:
MTV News: Why no kiss between Elle Fanning and Joel Courtney?
Abrams: You know, I don’t know who wanted to see the kiss between Elle Fanning and Joel Courtney, but to me … these were kids who, their affection for each other didn’t necessarily need to be played out with a kiss. But I think that hopefully you get the sense that their feelings for each other are profound.
