Kirsten Dunst has revealed that she lives in New York because she loves the anonymity of the city.

The 29-year-old Spider-Man actress said that she opted for the Big Apple over Los Angeles because it enables her to lead a more private life.

“I love LA. I lived in the San Fernando Valley for a long time. I’m going back there for four months soon for the holidays to be with my family,” she told Time Out Chicago. “[But] you do live more anonymously in New York. People don’t care that you’re an actor. The photographers there stay far away when they take your picture.

“They know I don’t like it, so they usually just leave me alone. I just didn’t want to live in a house by myself in L.A. I did that when I was younger and I didn’t have… like, if you don’t have a guy around to help you with things.”
