For Kirsten Dunst, Kissing Brad Pitt Was Disgusting
Kirsten Dunst escribed her kiss with Brad Pitt as disgusting
We don’t think it would be a stretch to suggest that most women would love a little kiss with Brad Pitt – he’s a perennial Hollywood hunk after all. But when you’re 10-years old, that kiss might take on a different meaning.
Kirsten Dunst was the 10-year-old kisser of Pitt, 20 years ago. "It was just a peck," she says of the kiss, which occurred in the 1994 film, Interview With The Vampire, in which she starred alongside Pitt and Tom Cruise. "I remember Brad would watch lots of Real World episodes," she recalls to Bullet Magazine. "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." This isn’t the first time Dunst has spoken of that now famous kiss. She explained back in 1998 when her career was coming into full swing, "Kissing Brad was so uncomfortable for me. I remember saying in interviews that I thought it was gross, that Brad had cooties. I mean, I was 10".

But, even at 10, it was less her immaturity and more her family-like feelings for her co-stars that put her off the smooch. "It was horrible, and I hated it. Brad and Tom were like my big brothers on the set,” she said, “so it was like kissing your big brother -- totally gross! He said, 'How do you think I feel? I have to kiss a little girl.' It was awful!"
