At 12 years old, Kirsten Dunst was already acting alongside two of the biggest stars in Hollywood. Namely, Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise.

Dunst, Pitt, and Cruise starred in the 1994 film, Interview With the Vampire which recently celebrated its 25th anniversary. To celebrate, Dunst reflected on her time on the set of the fantasy movie.

The actress appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last Thursday and shared what it was like to work with the two A-listers. In the show, Colbert asked her if her younger self realized she was working with Hollywood’s most wanted at the time.

Dunst answered that while she did have an idea of their fame she was “also very innocent.” The actress then recalled watching Cruise in the 1992 film Far and Away. As for Pitt, she had seen him in 1992’s A River Runs Through It.

In an Interview With a Vampire, Dunst took on the role of a young vampire named Claudia. She recalls that Pitt and Cruise “treated me like a little sister. I was very sweet. I was a very innocent 12-year-old.” Dunst adds that she was merely doing her job in the film and the pair was “very sweet to me.”

The Golden Globe nominee even had an innocent crush on Pitt at the time, saying she would’ve named her son after the actor’s character in A River Runs Through It. “I remember Brad in A River Runs Through It and his name was Tristan and I was like, ‘I’m going to name my first son Tristan.” the actress revealed.
