Garrett Hedlund – aka Kirsten’s boyfriend – is cover of Details magazine, and he mentioned her on the interview. Check the excerpts below, and to read the whole interview go to Details website.
On his relationship:
“Everything you ever knew seems to slowly be forgotten. All the good nights are just nights, all the good mornings are just mornings, all the dots in the sky are the same dots you’ve been looking at all your life.”
On his courtship trip with Kirsten:
“I took her out on a 3 a.m. canoe ride, it was not a stable canoe. We fell out and had to swim back in mucky, s–ty water, like golf-pond water.”
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.
Kirsten Dunst: Ready to Go Wild For “Bachelorette”
The actress was ready to reclaim her comedy cred after “Melancholia.”
Kirsten Dunst was desperately serious about getting silly again.
The 30-year-old actress got deep, dark and disturbed for her last film “Melancholia” – director Lars von Trier’s broody, sci-fi exploration of depression – and earned the Cannes Film Festival’s Best Actress Award for her risky performance. But after waiting for the end of the world, Dunst was in major mood-lightening mode.
Thus she embraced the raunchy, raucous comedy “Bachelorette,” joining Isla Fisher and Lizzie Caplan in a wild-pre-wedding romp. The film’s already caught the wave of the current “ladies can be just as crass as the guys” zeitgeist, reaching the top VOD spot on iTunes before it’s even hit theaters. Dunst tells NBC exclusively about returning to her comedy roots, her first trip to a strip club and her thoughts after seeing the most recent Spider-Man film.
Were you looking for something fun to do, especially as a palette-cleanser after ‘Melancholia’?
After ‘Melancholia,’ I was like, ‘I want to be in a comedy! I want to have fun! I do not want to delve deep into my soul.’ So, I was looking for it, yeah, a comedy, and it’s hard sometimes because I did a lot of comedies when I was younger, but nobody saw me as that. They didn’t think of me as a comedy girl, so it wasn’t that easy to find, and then this came along and it was perfect. I met with Leslye [Headland, the writer-director] and hit it off with her, and even though this was her first movie, I just felt the energy that she would be a good director. She’s very strong and confident, and also very smart, so I wasn’t worried.
You do have a ton of comedies to your credit. How did you drift away from it?
It was more when I was younger. Maybe because as you get older, the roles – mostly in the bigger comedies – are smaller parts for women, because it’s usually a male comedy. So it’s usually playing, like, just the girlfriend, which isn’t fun.
Kirsten Dunst: “I’m very chill these days”
Kirsten Dunst, 30, is a lot more relaxed than she was in her earlier years, and jokes about her tortured younger days. She’s looking glamorous at the Cannes Film Festival promoting On The Road, in which she stars opposite Viggo Mortensen and Kristen Stewart. Romantically, she is reportedly single. Her previous relationships include Jake Gyllenhaal, and musician Johnny Borrell of Razorlight. Dunst lives a low key lifestyle and lives on her own in New York.
Q: How is it coming back to Cannes after the success of Melancholia last year?
It’s nice because I’m part of the history now. I’m very grateful and it’s nice to come back and feel like you are really part of Cannes now.
Q: A member of the club.
Yeah, it feels cool. It’s a really an honour. I have always been drawn to this festival and the films that they show every year. And yeah, it’s a really nice feeling.
Q: And compared to what you had to do for Melancholia, that scene was much easier?
I don’t even have a sex scene…
Q: It was a piece of cake.
(laughs) Yeah, it was nothing. This was like, ‘oh, let’s have some fun.’
Q: I was just thinking, was there a sex scene?
Q: A post sex scene.
