HERE IS KIRSTEN DUNST
ON THE COVER OF APRILS' "W"
On her self-proclaimed best performance in the 1994 film Interview with a Vampire that costarred Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt and earned her a Golden Globe nomination: “I’ve never been so good! After 11, it all went downhill.”
On her disappointment of Marie Antoinette’s failure to connect with a wider audience: “I’m really disappointed in taste right now. I hope I don’t sound weird,” she explains. “I’m not bitter. I’m just a little, Well, that sucks because I really liked the movie. Whatevs. It’ll live on.”
On her personal life: “I don’t want to get into any of that because I don’t want to ruin my life. I’m done talking about anybody until I’m married. I’m a person who likes to hang out. I would never go on a blind date. That sounds like the most uncomfortable thing on the planet earth. It’s like, ‘Hi. Nice to meet you. So, what kind of music do you like?’ Date ended.”
On who Kirsten wants to end up with: “I need to eat a piece of pizza on a stoop in New York, and I cannot be with anybody fancy.”
On being a cheap-o: “Even though I was making tons of money and doing movies. I would still be excited to go with $20 to Contempo Casuals.
On coming to terms with being a celebrity: “I’m okay with it. I love what I do, and I know that I’ve been given this gift. But there was a time when I wasn’t, of course. And if I didn’t struggle with it, I probably wouldn’t be a good actress at all. I used to feel like I had to be the best at what I did, but I realized I don’t have to be the best. It’s so freeing. I’ve never been this happy.”
