Kirsten Dunst appears on the latest cover of “The Edit” and inside, she talks about her career, playing her role on Fargo and chivalry in men.
With regard to sensitivity, she said, “I feel much more confident in myself, in life. I don’t stress as much now. I’ve grown more sensitive though. The older I get, the more sensitive I’ve become. I don’t know why. I think it’s that age where death is more around you. I appreciate things more. I mean, I’ve always been very grateful, but I feel far more grounded than I did ten years ago.”
On the subject of her career, she said, “When I was younger, I actually felt anxious when I wasn’t working. Then there was a moment where I was kind of sick of [acting]. But then it shifted for me and I re-loved it in a different way. Most things are crap and it’s not like I get all the best roles. So you just have to wait.”
On her role on Fargo, she said, “Making a TV show is long hours. Even if you’re not in every scene of the show, all your scenes get compiled into intense days. And Peggy goes through all these emotions all the time so she’s exhausting to play…. Acting, to me, yes, you live in the moment, but you better prepare for that moment real hard and know what is going on emotionally with that person. So I like to know [my character’s trajectory] and it was difficult signing onto something where I didn’t. There was a really good description of Peggy in the beginning, but once you’re given a role it’s yours; I know her better than anyone, even the creator.”
She also talked of chivalry, adding, “I appreciate old-fashioned manners. I want a guy to pay for dinner and open the door for me. I love the masculine; I’ve dated men who had more of a feminine side and it didn’t work.”

Kirsten Dunst is on the cover of Town & Country speaking out about Hollywood BS, which is what lots of actresses like to do these days…not that I blame them, but it’s like, okay, bite the hand that feeds you, I guess?
The actress speaks out about what she calls the “unfair” and “really ridiculous” expectations that actors have placed on them today, and how as she’s gotten older she’s learned to navigate the BS:
“What people expect of an actor is totally ridiculous,” she tells Town & Country as their September cover star. “It’s unfair that an artist is expected to speak really well in public and have skin tough enough to withstand sometimes really hurtful criticism, but also, in order to do the job, be really sensitive and in touch with their feelings.”
Dunst, 33, who’s set to star in the second season of FX’s Fargo, says she’s learned to get through it by staying true to her personality.
“So all you can do is be yourself – just be who the hell you are,” she tells the mag.
Dunst says that a changing mentality in Hollywood has helped make things better for women in the industry. While on set for the Spider-Man movies in 2002 and 2004, the actress felt like she was in an all boys club, but says her recent projects have been different.
“But the older I get, the less I feel that way. What I’ve found is that the cool guys now want to hang out with the cool girls,” she says.
The actress also opens up about her love, actor Garrett Hedlund in the interview.
“We’ve been together for three and a half years, so, yes, it’s going really well. We’re the same age. We have similar backgrounds,” she says, adding, “He feels like family to me.”
I agree with the point that it seems ironic that actors need to be in touch with their feelings and withstand criticism. And Garrett Hedlund? Hot as hell.

Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Kirsten Dunst and numerous other female celebrities became the victims of a nude celebrity photo hack over the weekend. Others targeted in the leak on 4Chan include the likes of Victoria Justice, Ariana Grande, Hope Solo, Krysten Ritter, Yvonne Strahovski, and Teresa Palmer.
Justice has already issued a denial on Twitter saying, “These so called nudes of me are FAKE people. Let me nip this in the bud right now. *pun intended*”.
Lawrence, on the other hand, has basically confirmed that her leaked pictures are real. Her spokespeople said, “This is a flagrant violation of privacy. The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.”
Ariana Grande said on Twitter, “hell nah….praying for the people who believed that was me lmaoo…my petite ass is much cuter than that.”
Kate Upton’s lawyer has also chimed in saying, “This is obviously an outrageous violation of our client Kate Upton’s privacy. We intend to pursue anyone disseminating or duplicating these illegally obtained images to the fullest extent possible.”
