Kirsten Dunst on Kissing Scene With Brad Pitt: 'It Was Disgusting'

March 29, 2013 09:25:00 GMT


While many girls are dying just to get close to Brad Pitt, kissing the actor didn't leave a beautiful memory for Kirsten Dunst. In a new interview with Bullet magazine, the 30-year-old recalled her famous kiss with Pitt in 1994's film "Interview With the Vampire". In the film which also starred Tom Cruise, Dunst played an undead woman who was trapped in a child's body.

"It was just a peck," the actress said of the on-screen kiss. "I remember Brad would watch lots of 'Real World' episodes. 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."
