Recently out-of-the-closet JoJo Siwa wants to never be seen smooching a man again — including those based in fiction.

The 18-year-old Nickelodeon star confessed that she’s urging producers of her upcoming movie “Bounce” to pull a scene that would depict her kissing a male character.

Siwa cited her relationship with girlfriend Kylie Prew, 18, as the reason for her pleading with Will Smith’s Westbrook production company for the change, according to an interview with Entertainment Weekly for their annual Pride issue.

“I’m madly in love and I do not want to kiss another human. Especially because it’s a man,” Siwa told EW. She explained that her fans may not separate her from her “Bounce” character, Franny.

“That’s what they look at me as, not some character, not some fictional thing. And so it’s going to be a little weird.”

“I’m not about it,” she continued, referring to heterosexual make-outs. “I’m trying to get it pulled so bad. It’ll happen. It’ll get pulled.”

The male lead hasn’t yet been cast in the movie, which saw delays in production due to the pandemic.

Westbrook has not responded to The Post’s request for comment on whether they’re considering Siwa’s request.

Adapted from the eponymous young-adult book by Megan Shull, “Bounce” is directed by “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” filmmaker Susan Johnson and due out later this year.

Siwa came out as part of the LGBTQ community in January after much speculation among fans, with rumors coming to a climax after the “Dance Moms” icon shared a video of her lip-syncing to Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” — a noted gay anthem — recorded while working on a collaboration with TikTok collective PrideHouse. Fans immediately picked up on her hints.

In the same week, she also shared a picture of herself wearing a shirt which read “Best Gay Cousin Ever,” effectively confirming what many had suspected.

She later told People in April that she doesn’t want to put too strict of a label on her sexuality.

“I don’t know — bisexual, pansexual, queer, lesbian, gay, straight. I always just say ‘gay’ because it just kind of covers it, or ‘queer’ because I think the keyword is cool,” she said.

“I like ‘queer,’ ” Siwa continued. “Technically, I would say that I am pansexual, because that’s how I have always been my whole life is just like, my human is my human.”
