Kirsten Dunst Bites The Bullett
Many dream of kissing Brad Pitt, but for the young girl whose first kiss came from his lips, the experience wasn't all that great.
Dunst played opposite Pitt in Interview with the Vampire as a child bloodsucker whose undead body never matures, frustrating her as emotionally and mentally she develops the mores and cravings of a full-grown woman. Her Golden Globe-nominated performance features a chaste kiss with the pre-Jennifer Aniston, pre-Angelina Jolie youthful Pitt, and although he was in his prime, Dunst, then just 11 years old, says it was still gross.
"It was just a peck," she told Bullett magazine.
"I remember Brad would watch lots of Real World episodes," she said. "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."
Dunst parlayed that innocence into a stellar performance in The Virgin Suicides and handed her trust over to director Sofia Coppola for a far more sexual scene than she ever had in Interview.
"I trusted Sofia a lot," she told the mag. "It was the first time someone wanted me to be more sexual, to be the object of desire. I myself was starting to change, but I hadn't yet been able to express that in a film. Because Sofia was a woman, too, I felt so much more comfortable doing that."
And for Brad Pitt, he and partner Angelina Jolie (who presumably is not grossed out by kissing him) are fighting off new rumors that they wed in secret after the actress was spotted wearing a simple gold band in place of her gigantic engagement ring.
Jolie denied the band was a wedding ring when pressed by TMZ. Turns out she just left the incredibly valuable bauble at home when she went to Africa on an ambassador mission this week, but still wanted a reminder of her love.
