As she puts it, “Those times of making movies like that, they just don’t exist anymore.”

Reflecting on her time on set, Dunst reveals, “It was such a long process getting that role. I was like a race horse ready to go. And I wasn’t afraid to, you know, go there. When I think about that movie…We literally were vampires. We lived at night. We shot at night, always.”

Thanks to her stellar performance in Interview with the Vampire, Kirsten Dunst earned a Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actress, as well as winning Best Breakthrough Performance at the MTV Movie Awards and Best Performance by a Younger Actor at the Saturn Awards.
