Kirsten Dunst is getting in touch with her raunchy side.
The 30-year-old starlet gets it on with an X-Men star in the upcoming comedy Bachelorette…
Dunst costars in the ensemble as a young executive organizing a high school friend’s wedding when everything that can go wrong during the big weekend does.
James Marsden plays one of the groom’s douche friends who ends up having a quicky sex romp with Dunst in a strip club.
“Those are always daunting scenes when you see them on the schedule,” Marsden told me last night at the Maui Film Festival, where he was honored with the Nova Award before yours truly conducted a Q & A with him for an estimated 3,000 festival goers. “You’re counting the days.”
Thankfully, Dunst had no problem going for it.
“Kirsten was like, ‘Come on, whatever. Lets have fun doing it and let’s go for it,'” Marsden said.
At 38, Marsden may only be eight years older than Dunst, but he couldn’t help but think of Dunst when she was a child star in movies like Interview With a Vampire. “Don’t think that didn’t cross my mind when we were on a bathroom counter in some random bar in New York,” he laughed. “But she’s as cool a chick as it gets. Once I knew Kirsten was game, it was much easier to do the scene.”
Marsden realizes his not-so-likeable character is a departure from his usual good guy roles. “Everyone involved with the movie said, ‘He’s never going to do this,’ but it was something I had an appetite for,” he said. “They were shocked that I said yes.”
Francis Ford Coppola’s “Twixt,” Walter Salles’ “On the Road” and Fernando Meirelles’ “360” are among the high-profile international titles unspooling at the Munich Film Festival, which runs June 29-July 7.
The fest, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary, kicks off with “Starbuck,” Ken Scott’s Canadian drama about the troubled life of a one-time sperm donor and his hundreds of progeny.
Munich boasts seven major sections with more than 200 films devoted to international cinema, German film, acclaimed filmmakers, young talent and kids’ pics from around the globe.
“Twixt,” “On the Road,” “360” and “Starbuck” all unspool in the main Spotlight section, which also includes Bruce Robinson’s “The Rum Diary,” Jake Schreier’s “Robot and Frank,” Markus Imboden’s Swiss hit “The Foster Boy” and Pat Holden’s British supernatural thriller “When the Lights Go Out.”
During her time in Cannes a few weeks ago, Kirsten was photographed by Vanity Fair for their series of Cannes portraits. The result is a beautiful shot of Kiki still in her pink Dior gown and looking pensive – see the snap in our Gallery:
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.
