What happened to Kirsten Dunst?

She has not starred in a movie for a while. Is she going to become the next Heather Graham?

Re: What happened to Kristen Dunst?

I think the Spiderman debacle probably is to blame. I know she was producing something about why voting occurs on a Tuesday.

IMDb shows one movie out this year and 3 in the pipeline for next year. Maybe she just took some time off.

In 2008 she was in rehab after partying too hard and people around her had an intervention. She later said it was for depression not drugs or alcohol. Gossips say shes a big drinker in 2009.

Last time I saw her, she was turning Japanese.

Re: What happened to Kirsten Dunst?

She made a ton of shitty movies that bombed at the box office, that's what happened.

People hated her in the Spider-man movies. It was a laughable role. Spider-man 3 was the final insult.

Maybe she spent time away from filming and took acting lessons.

I hope so, that would mean a lot of nude scenes.

Maybe she's finally getting that snaggletooth fixed?

Re: What happened to Kirsten Dunst?

She is what's called, 'Flavor of the month' in Hollywood actors and actresses. Just another pretty face (not to all) that makes it in movies and doesn't have any real talent. That is why actors/actresses like her rarely have any longevity.

Flavor of the month? Say what? She's been getting steady work since she was a kid. Interview with a Vampire and Jumanji came out 15 years ago. She's been in several big budget films since.

Re: What happened to Kirsten Dunst?

Thanks for that video, Perkinsun!

Kirsten had a pretty good run of success in the late-90s/early-00s playing sexy teenage girls. Even in the first Spiderman movie, Dunst was playing a teenager.
Unlike (say) Reese Witherspoon, KD never was able to establish herself as a bankable adult actress or one to be taken seriously.

I thought she was very charming in the undersold, underseen How to Lose Friends & Alienate People.

Don't forget, she had Spider-Man 4 on the docket before it fell apart. Also, she had been reported to have some drinking problems the last few years. Maybe she's just working out personal stuff.

Re: What happened to Kirsten Dunst?

Is Reese Witherspoon really that bankable these days, she just struck gold with in "Walk the Line", with what what I considered to be a supporting role, but had little competition that year for the best actress Oscar.

Obtopic - happened to see that episode of Punked recently when Kirsten got got by Ashton and company.. She was kinda cute during that episode.

Re: What happened to Kirsten Dunst?

I did not know she did a Japanese video.

What year was that?

She might not be the most talented but she has to better than Megan Fox.

Re: What happened to Kirsten Dunst?

Well..I'll be damned. I liked that video.

I think she was bad for MJ. She was too small for MJ. And..well...they never made much of MJ in the films besides damsel in distress. MJ was a much stronger character in the comics.

Have you seen her in anything other than Spiderman? She's a fantastic comedic actress -- just watch Dick and Bring It On if you don't believe me -- and well above average in dramatic roles.

Agree, but she looked hot back then. After the first SPIDER-MAN movie her body started to droop. Her teeth needed whitening, her hair needed shampoo, her lips needed chap stick. Most of all she needed some sun.

Re: What happened to Kirsten Dunst?

WTF? Just check IMDB. It looks like she has 4 coming out and 2 in development. It seems she's doing ok.

I've been a fan since "Interview with a Vampire", but I've been in LOVE with her since "Elizabethtown".
I also dug her in "How to make Friends...", Marie Antoinette", and "Wimbledon"

She is in the next Lars von Trier film. We may get out wish...although it will probably be featured along with a rape or blood or something of that sort.

And depending on how young he was when that movie came out.

People freak out when I say that I first developed a crush on Natalie Portman when I saw The Professional until I explain that she and I are only 1 year appart.
