Kirsten Dunst was stunned by male director’s ‘inappropriate question’ he asked her at 16

For the majority of her time as a young actress, Kirsten Dunst says she was able to evade the “predatory side” of the entertainment industry, crediting her own mother’s cognizance. “I was only able to avoid that predatory side of the business because wherever I went, my mother was literally always right there,” she told The Telegraph of her protective mother, Inez. In the industry as a youngster, her breakout role came in 1994, starring opposite Hollywood heartthrobs Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt in “Interview with the Vampire.” She was 11-years-old and “treated like a princess” on set. KIRSTEN DUNST FEELS LIKE A ‘NOBODY’ IN HOLLYWOOD, SAYS SHE’S MORE THAN JUST THAT ‘BRING IT ON’ GIRL “Yes, it was a virtually all-male set, but everyone was very gentle and kind, and nothing ever felt weird. Brad was like an older brother to me,” she said of Pitt whom she actually kissed in the film. “And then Tom — well, one morning around Christmas, I remember going into my dressing room at Pinewood, and he’d set up a beautiful tree in there for me, covered in ornaments.” LIKE WHAT YOU’RE READING?

It was totally improper. And I remember sitting there and knowing that something was wrong, but with no idea what I should do.” CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP Dunst told her mother about the incident and says there weren’t any more issues. “That was the end of it. She withdrew me from the process and told them I wouldn’t be making the film,” she revealed. A representative for Dunst did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.
