In the new issue of W, guest editor Sofia Coppola interviews her “first leading lady and favourite California blonde” Kirsten Dunst. Among the topics that the two discuss: how to not get taken advantage of by directors, alternative career paths, favourite and least favourite past experiences, and nudity.
Asked if she has ever been “pounced on” by a director, Dunst replied, “No, I don’t give off that vibe. I think that you court that stuff, and to me it’s crossing a boundary that would hinder the trust in your working relationship.”
When the conversation shifted to dream jobs other than acting, Dunst said that she wouldn’t mind being an interior designer: “I love interior design—maybe I’d do that, but if I did an interior, I’d want to live in it. I would stick to a creative job.”
Regarding the least favourite period of her life, Dunst said, “Hardest age was 27; I had to figure out how to navigate differently through life.” But whatever difficulties Dunst went through back then seem to have passed. “My favourite age is now. I love my friendships, and I know I have fun things to look forward to.”
Asked if she finds doing nude scenes in films scary, Dunst said, “I don’t mind it if it feels appropriate for the film, but it’s never not nerve-racking.”

The January 10 issue of Entertainment Weekly has a first look of Kiki on Portlandia, the IFC show that will return next February 27 and which Kiki is going to guest star. Thans to Claudia for sending in scans, which you can find in the gallery.
Kirsten has a new photoshoot in the latest Bullett Magazine issue, in with she talked a little about her career.
About Lars quotes on Cannes, while promoting Melancholia:
“It was like your friend saying things you know he’s not wanting to say. At first he was trying to get a laugh, and then it just snowballed into word vomit coming out of his mouth. I was dying.”
About the Spider-Man movies:
“I wish we could have done a fourth movie. We were like a family, plus, those movies gave me the means to not work as much, help my family, and do little indie projects that I made no money on. To many people, I’m still ‘that girl from Spider-Man.’”

Kirsten’s upcoming film The Two Faces of January has a 2-page feature in the latest issue of Empire. I have scanned the magazine and added it to the gallery, enjoy!
Last month Kiki was cover of Italian magazine Tu Style, in an article to promote “Bachelorette”. My friend Claudia scanned the magazine, plus translated the article to English. Check scans in the gallery, and read the full article after the jump:
I love being a bitch!
On the movie “On The Road” she is a good girl in a beat clan. In “Bachelorette” she’s a bitchy maid of honour. And how is she? The most eclectical ‘indie’ of Hollywood plays Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. As she states “How boring to always be the good girl: let’s go bitches!”
Kirsten Dunst found turning 30 “stressful”.
The actress admitted that the milestone birthday freaked her out initially, but added she has since managed to relax and feels as young as ever.
The Bachelorette star also revealed that while she would like to have her own family, she doesn’t see a husband and children in her immediate future.
“Turning 30 was stressful, but I’ve stopped thinking about it and now I feel exactly how I did at 29. I would like to have kids and get married – one day,” she told German magazine TV Spielfilm.
Kirsten also spoke about the issue of jealousy in female friendships.
In Bachelorette, the star plays a bridesmaid who is annoyed that the girl she used to mock in high school is getting married before her.
The blonde beauty insisted that she isn’t as mean-spirited as her character.
“I think it depends on how happy you are within yourself, what you’ve been through. I, for one, was very happy when my best friend got engaged,” she said.
Scans from Kirsten’s small but new feature in French magazine Be have been added to our Gallery! I think this is a new photoshoot, right? I haven’t seen it before.
The magazine also states that Bachelorette will be released in French cinemas on October 17th.
