“If you have brothers, this film  is going to make sense to you,” says Jonas of Goat.

Nick Jonas isn’t alone in having a “terrible” first kiss. Unlike the rest of us, his first smooch just happened to be with Miley Cyrus.

In a chat for BBC Radio 1 (via MTV.com), the Jonas brother fessed up on his awkward liplock a decade ago with his former girlfriend and fellow Disney star.

“The first person I kissed was Miley Cyrus and I kissed her outside of California Pizza Kitchen in Hollywood -- very romantic,” he said with a laugh. “I’d just had a pizza that had onions all over it. I’m sure that my breath smelled terrible.”

Host Nick Grimshaw probed further. Does Miley recall the moment? “I don’t know,” Jonas responded. "I’d have to ask her. But I’m sure she does. It was probably pretty potent.”
