Kirsten Dunst is happy to be bridesmaid
KIRSTEN Dunst isn’t feeling any pressure to get hitched after spending her summer going to weddings.
“I was a bridesmaid, a maid of honour, went to another wedding … This was definitely a heavy wedding year for me.”
As her school friends walked one-by-one down the aisle, the 30-year-old claims to have felt no pressure to get her own marital act together.
“Not at all, no. All in the time that it should come,” Dunst says.
“I’m not worried. When you do worry, when you fixate on those things, that’s when it doesn’t happen. Like when you hear about couples who adopt a child and then they get pregnant, you know? That kind of psychology.
“When you’re not thinking about it, that’s when it comes your way.”
So Dunst is happy to remain a bridesmaid – for now, at least – even in her new movie, “Bachelorette”.
Riding a post-Bridesmaids appetite for female-led comedies, “Bachelorette” is an indie production focused on three emotionally-stunted women (Dunst, Lizzy Caplan and Isla Fisher) who go off the deep end when the fourth wheel of their old high-school gang – Becky, the one they called “Pig Face” (Rebel Wilson) – is the first to get married.
HOLLYWOOD actress Kirsten Dunst gave one little boy a treat during a visit to Crete arranged by a Whitley Bay charity.
Joshua Mann had his picture taken with the Spider-Man actress after meeting her while she was on the island filming her latest movie, The Two Faces of January, co-starring Viggo Mortensen.
Joshua and his family, from Spennymoor in County Durham, were enjoying a break in the sun laid on by the Sara’s Hope Foundation, founded to offer respite breaks to children and young people battling cancer.
The charity was set up in memory of Whitley Bay teenager Sara Hoburn after she died in 2001 at the age of 16 from a form of colon cancer.
Joshua’s is one of 22 families to have visited the retreat since it was opened last summer.
Charity founder Ged Hoburn said it was a pleasure to see the young patients and their families enjoying quality time together.
He said: “We spend a lot of time with the families out there, and we see them blossom.
So, the U.S. trailer for “On The Road” was released yesterday. Watch it below:
“On The Road” will hit theaters next December 21st.
Millennium sees ‘Upside’
Millennium Entertainment has acquired U.S. rights to Juan Diego Solana’s sci-fi romancer “Upside Down,” starring Kirsten Dunst and Jim Sturgess.
The company will release the film in both 2D and 3D in 2013. Aton Soumache, Dimitri Rassam, Alexis Vonarb, Claude Leger and Jonathan Vanger produced and Phil Hope and James W. Skotchdopole serve as exec producers.
“Upside,” penned by Solana, centers on a man kept apart from the girl he has loved his entire life. He must risk everything to access the forbidden world of affluence that exists literally above him while manipulating the gravitational force that physically pulls him back to his world.
Millennium Entertainment’s Tristen Tuckfield negotiated the deal with Gregoire Melin from Kinology, who also coproduced the film alongside Frederique Dumas from Studio 37/Orange.
I had the opportunity to watch “Bachelorette” on VoD on its release, and was excited to do this update for you. I have added over 1000+ high quality screen captures in our gallery, you can see the previews below and the full captures in our gallery. Will be sure to add special features as soon the DVD is launched!

I have up 250 beautiful blu-ray quality screencaptures of Kristen’s breathtaking performance as Camille, the Dean Moriarty’s wife. Her appearance isn’t as long as we wanted to, but it worth watching nonetheless. Check the previews below, and full captures in our gallery:
I have a little update today. Added some pictures of Kirsten, Lizzy and Isla on Good Morning America last month, plush a portrait Kiki did to NY Times last year. Check it:
Kristen Stewart: ‘I love Marylou. She jumps off the page and smacks you in the face’
On the Road’s Kristen Stewart and Kirsten Dunst on how they brought Kerouac’s ‘silent heroines’ into sharper focus
For many, On the Road is primarily one for the boys. Jack Kerouac’s obsession with the egotistical and hedonistic drifter Neal Cassady dominates the book, with the female characters relegated to the back seat, disposable objects that float in and out of the tale at the convenience of the proto-beat lads.
That’s one view. But to director Walter Salles, the novel’s female characters, especially those based on Cassady’s long-suffering wives, are “the silent heroines” of the piece. Accordingly, he has cast two of Hollywood’s most sought-after actresses – Kristen Stewart and Kirsten Dunst – to play them.
Stewart is Marylou, the book’s version of Cassady’s first wife, LuAnne Henderson, who joined Cassady and Kerouac on their road trips across America; Dunst is Camille, aka second wife Carolyn Cassady, who stayed at home with the babies in San Francisco. Cassady flitted between these women, sleeping with Carolyn while married to LuAnne, keeping LuAnne as a lover after he had divorced her for Carolyn. Kerouac made little effort to give his female friends depth and dignity on the page; the film attempts to remedy that oversight.
Stewart’s prominence in the promotion of the film reflects both that intention and the Twilight star’s high profile. The 22-year-old also happens to be a surprisingly passionate fan of the book.
“On the Road was on the reading list in my freshman year and thank God, I chose it,” she recalls. “It looked much more fun than any of the others. I knew that it was about counterculture, and when you’re 14 years old and putting ridiculous anarchy signs on your backpack that’s just what you’re drawn to.
Upside Down has long been one of my most anticipated films of the year, promising to be one of the most fantastic sci-fi/fantasy romantic dramas in recent memory.
Starring Kirsten Dunst and Jim Sturgess in the leads, we saw the stunning first international trailer all the way back in January, and have seen a small number of things since then, but it has been largely very quiet; even the first official US trailer is still yet to debut.
Though it may not be official, the film’s release date on IMDb has recently been updated to 10th December this year, which would put it in a potential prime position in the coming awards season.
One country that has seen its release is Russia, where it was released on 23rd August and debuted at #2 at the box office with just over $3m. And Poland, Ukraine, and Hong Kong have all also seen the film arrive in theatres in recent weeks.
