Dunst, now 37, and Pitt, now 55, starred in 1994’s Interview With a Vampire when they were respectively 11 and 30. The kiss is something Dunst has described as “gross”, but she’s also added that Pitt treated her “like a little sister”.
Nevertheless, despite the awkward scene, playing Claudia in the movie catapulted Dunst into the international spotlight. She was acclaimed for her stellar performance, and was even nominated for a Golden Globe award.
