Kirsten Dunst’s transition between child star to full-fledged adult actress was so seamless and scandal-free that many forget the blonde beauty was indeed a child star, making her big-screen debut opposite Hollywood heavyweights Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt in 1994′s Interview with the Vampire when she was only 10 (yes, her first on-screen kiss, and likely one of her first kisses ever, was with Brad freaking Pitt. Our first kiss definitely wasn’t that awesome.) From Little Women to Jumanji, The Virgin Suicides to Bring It On, Dunst kept adding acting gig upon acting gig to her resume, and she hasn’t slowed down since, appearing in the hotly-anticipated Bachelorette and On The Road this year. So, about that child star curse?
