Don’t call Kirsten Dunst a feminist! The actress opened up about gender roles in the latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK. The 31-year-old’s comments on relationships between men and women are causing a bit of an uproar!

“I feel like the feminine has been a little undervalued,” she told the magazine. “We all have to get our own jobs and make our own money, but staying at home, nurturing, being the mother, cooking – it’s a valuable thing my mom created.”

The Midnight Special star, who has been dating actor Garrett Hedlund since the Sundance Film Festival in January 2012, argues that finding a manly man is necessary.

“And sometimes, you need your knight in shining armour,” continued Dunst, whose exes include Jake Gyllenhaal, Tobey Maguire, and Justin Long. “I’m sorry. You need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman. That’s how relationships work.”

Naturally, her comments have stirred up controversy on the Internet. Sites like Jezebel and Uproxx have bashed Dunst’s comments.

“Kirsten Dunst is not paid to write gender theory so it shouldn’t surprise anyone that she’s kind of dumb about it,” Jezebel writer Erin Gloria Ryan wrote.

I understand what Kirsten was saying, and I don’t think she’s wrong. I agree with her – and think people need to not get their panties in a wad over such stupid things. It’s her opinion, who cares?

Yeah why does everyone have to apologize for having an opinion these days without others getting all butthurt and offended over it. Chill everyone. Also, in the title you put “dender roles”. Lots of typos on this site, just sayin, no biggie, but it’s confusing sometimes.
