Well, there's a new kiss cam clip that's sure to make it into Facebook's trending slot come Monday morning and that's this one of Leonardo DiCaprio and Maggie Smith.

The 41-year-old Leo was put on the spot after the kiss cam sought him out, pairing him with 81-year-old Maggie.

Instead of shying away from the opportunity, as Michael Fassbender had minutes before, Leo took full advantage of the chance to pucker up.
