Kirsten Dunst, In Defiance Of Gravity | Bullett

“It was just a peck,” she says of the smooch she and Pitt shared in Neil Jordan’s Interview with the Vampire. In the 1994 cinematic adaptation of Anne Rice’s classic novel, Dunst delivered a Golden Globe–nominated performance as Claudia, an undead woman trapped in a young girl’s body. Dunst, then 11, was tasked with channeling a grown woman’s desires, sexual yearnings, and cruel manipulations through a body frozen in pre-adolescence. Her recollection of the experience is accordingly innocent. “I remember Brad would watch lots of Real World episodes,” she says. “He had this long hair. He was just a hippie- ish cool dude. Everyone at the time was like, ‘You’re so lucky you kissed Brad Pitt,’ but I thought it was disgusting. I didn’t kiss anyone else until I was 16, I think. I was a late bloomer.”
