Lucky old Adel Imam has had his fair share of onscreen kisses with some of the Arab world's hottest actresses during his 53-year career in film and television.

While Egyptian actress Yousra starred in 17 of Imam's films, and locked lips with him in many of them, actor Samir Ghanem's wife Dalal Abdel Aziz was another to smooch the King of Comedy in their film "El Noam Fil Asal" as well!

Although 60-year-old Yousra told TV host Wafaa Kilani that all onscreen kisses are "real," except "they lack any emotions and fail to arouse any sexual feelings in an actor," did that affect the way Ghanem felt about his wifey kissing Imam at the time?

Not exactly...

According to Al Jaras Magazine, when asked to comment on the intimate smooches between Dalal and Imam, Ghanem told journalist Mona Abdel Wahab, "Dalal used to love acting, so I asked her 'are you happy this way? This is what acting is like.' If you want to kiss an actor again, ask me first.

"Adel Imam is like a brother to me. I'll never forget the day he went to hospital with me and was able to make my ill brother laugh before he passed away."
