I have updated the gallery with two new photoshoots Kirsten took alongside Sofia Coppola when promoting The Beguiled, one for Variety and other for LA Times.


Who else but Kirsten Dunst could star in the Rodarte sisters’ trippy first film?
By Amy Larocca for NY Mag

Three great friends — the actress Kirsten Dunst and Laura and Kate Mulleavy, the fashion-designing wonder siblings behind the craft-meets-high-fashion line Rodarte — are sitting in a booth at Smoke House, an old-school Hollywood place with red leather booths and headshots on the wall just across from the Warner Bros. lot in the valley. They are discussing Woodshock, a dreamy, trippy feature film — a meditation on grief, destruction, and psychedelic drugs — that will be released September 22. The movie was written and directed by the Mulleavys; Dunst served as an executive producer and the film’s star.

“We went on a trip to Florence together in about 2011,” Laura says. The sisters had already drafted a short version of a script, “and we drank so much limoncello and we started talking about it.”

“We’re all so emotionally interconnected,” Kate explains.

“I was the first actress to wear their clothes,” says Dunst. “It was while I was doing press for Spider-Man, and it was this black dress with chains that it turns out were sewn by their mother, and they sent me a box of trinkets — we were all just so excited.”

“Artistically, I think you just meet someone you’re supposed to work with,” Kate says. Both sisters are big talkers: articulate in describing their intentions and their art. Dunst is a bit more reserved. “Laura and I are a very internal network, so for me, writing a script, we didn’t talk to anyone about it,” says Kate. “So for us to sit down with Kirsten and say, ‘Let’s get through a really early state of something,’ that was a big deal.”

Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning and Sofia Coppola are on cover of Dazed Magazine’s summer issue. You can buy a copy of the most recent issue here.

About two thirds of the way into The Beguiled, Sofia Coppola’s new American civil war-set gothic western, something happens: the sexual tension that’s been simmering at an all-girls boarding academy crescendos into something explosive, throttling the film into a barbarous and gruesome third act. It is the great cinematic moment that pivots the story away from what you think it’s going to be towards something unthinkable, where nothing short of life and death hangs in the balance. But you try telling Kirsten Dunst and Elle Fanning that.

“Elle was doing booty dance moves upstairs and we were just out of control,” recalls Kirsten Dunst, who stars as Edwina, the forlorn and innocent schoolteacher to Elle Fanning’s more scheming and lustful student, Alicia. “We were just having too much fun in those nightgowns.”

LA Times’ The Envelope did a series of video interviews with some Emmy contenders, and they have the video published on their website. They also published additional talking on their website, which you can read below.

We hadn’t seen you much before “Fargo.” Had you made a conscious decision to take something of a break?
I’m someone who waits. And my manager will be like, “You need to work! Look at this script!” But I can’t do it. I physically can’t do it. I think it’s because I’ve been working so long that I’m kind of at a normal person’s retirement age.

You’ve been acting for 30 years …
I started when I was 3 and I just turned 34. I should be a retiree! I’m tired! I’m not hustling. I’m happy to spend my summer off and then work with Sofia [Coppola] in the fall. Do I need to squeeze another project in there? No!

The projects you have made lately have been independent films …
… which don’t pay much. And no one sees. That was what was amazing about “Fargo.” My mom’s saying, “I went to Bloomingdale’s and everyone’s telling me how much they loved ‘Fargo.’” It’s been awhile since anyone has said anything to her.

No Lars von Trier fans in her circle?
[Laughs] I remember I went to that same Bloomingdale’s at the Fashion Square mall in the Valley and I was perusing the shoe section and one of the women came up to me, sweetly, but also curt too, saying, “I miss you in film.” And meanwhile I had done “Melancholia.” I had done films, just not the kind normal audiences would ever seek out and see. So doing “Fargo” was such a relief. People were actually seeing my work.

You spent six months filming “Fargo” in Calgary. Allison Tolman told me Bob Odenkirk was a great advance scout in the first season, finding the bookstore and the good restaurants …
Oh, I found the good restaurant. Model Milk. Such an odd name. We also found the casino. I won a lot of money! I love gambling, but I’m not bad with my money at all. I will take like $300, put it aside and only gamble with that. I’m very conservative. If I win, I walk away for sure. And I won over $1,000 in under two minutes playing slots.

No wonder you don’t need to work. You can fall back on gambling!
[Laughs] I’m not that big of a gambler! I gambled twice over the course of the past year.

It sounds like watching “Fargo” was something of a family activity with you and your mom and your brother.
My only wish is that my grandma could have seen it. She’s from Minnesota and she passed away before I did all this. That was the most heartbreaking thing for me watching it. My grandma would have gotten such a kick out of “Fargo.” We were very close. I was born on her birthday.

Did you incorporate her at all in your work on the show?
Oh, I used everything. A little dash of my grandmother. My dreams. Things that annoy me. People on set. I used everything possible to give my character an inner life that felt grounded. But it’s not like I felt my grandmother’s presence on set. I did have one blatant moment with her though … with a hummingbird. I was driving home from a friend’s house and this hummingbird was in the middle of the street and it wouldn’t move. And it forced me to stop my car. I drove home and told my mom what happened because that’s not in the nature of a hummingbird to do that. They’re always dashing around. And my mom realized that it was the day my grandma passed. So I think it was my grandma saying “hi.”

Check some portraits she took during the interview added in our gallery.


Kirsten is one of the actresses among THR’s annual Drama Actress Roundtable, alongside Jennifer Lopez, Julianna Margulies, Sarah Paulson, Regina King and Constance Zimmer. They talked, as usual, about their current work and nudity, network fights and diva label.

Watch below one of the bits with Kirsten, plus check scans added in our gallery.


Our gallery was updated with additional images of the photoshoot Kirsten did to InStyle UK (which scans can be found here).


Kiki is on cover of InStyle UK magazine in its May issue. She talks rejection, wedding plans and trying to remain “normal” in Hollywood.

On not winning a Golden Globe for her performance aged 12 in Interview With The Vampire…
‘Everyone told me, “You’re definitely going to win.” And I believed them,’ she recalls of the 1995 ceremony. That night, she wore an off-the-shoulder burgundy velvet dress with dainty pearls and sheer black stockings that hid her knobbly, pre-adolescent knees. ‘Then, they didn’t say my name and I cried. The people at my table were like, “Quick! Hide her face!”

On the inequality of the film business…
‘If it weren’t for fashion and beauty campaigns, I wouldn’t have the finances to pick and choose my projects,’ she says of one of the inequities of the business few females will broach. ‘Literally, it’s the only industry that supports women in that way.’

This issue will be on sale next March 31st!
