Anne Hathaway’s on-screen love interests have included Adrien Grenier, Jake Gyllenhaal and James McAvoy, so it’s no wonder the actress could teach a class about movie kissing.

“You have to leave your mouth open a little bit,” she explained to British GQ’s March issue, demonstrating on her palm. “Open up. More, more, ever so lightly ... otherwise you’re going to be getting smooshy. Now ... slow it down ... just a little bit ...”

The actress added that the intimate moments of lip locking on screen can be fun, especially when a person is single.

“If you’re both unattached and you get along, of course kissing in a movie is fun,” Hathaway said, though she’s filmed many of her own movie smooches while personally attached. (She’s currently dating actor Adam Shulman after a tumultuous long-term romance with convict ex Raffaello Follieri, who’s currently serving out a jail sentence on fraud charges.)

“But you can never get truly deep down and into it. Well, I can’t,” she continued.

One of her “Valentine’s Day” co-stars, she said, doesn’t have that problem.

“Jennifer Garner — now that girl can movie kiss. I gotta say that girl can really give it some up there,” Hathaway told the mag.

But the most impressive movie kisser of all? Hathaway said it’s none other than Angelina Jolie.

“Full-on movie kissing ... it’s a totally different experience,” Hathaway said. “But really you have to be Angelina Jolie to pull that off and still look good. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I ain’t no Angie.”

Viewers will get the chance to judge for themselves when “Valentine’s Day” arrives in theaters on Feb. 12.
