Happy Birthday, Kirsten Dunst! The actress, who first came on to the scene at the ripe age of 12 in Interview with a Vampire, is 32 today. Although the role shocked many viewers (the young actress starred alongside Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise and shared an on-screen kiss with Pitt, who was 18 years her senior) it earned her a Golden Globe nomination and firmly secured her place in Hollywood. Since then, she has become a fan favorite, starring in a wide array of movies, including comedies like Bring It On and Bachelorette, dramas like American Beauty and The Virgin Suicides, and action movies like the Spider-Man trilogy. But her influence extends far beyond the silver screen — in January, she was named the global spokesperson for L'Oréal Professionnel.
