The Hollywood actress plays a woman called Justine in Melancholia, a science-fiction movie directed by Lars. Her performance won her the best actress prize at this year’s Cannes International Film Festival.

Kirsten managed her initial anxiety about working with the controversial director by addressing her negative thoughts.

“Until some years ago I would have had a panic attack if I had to act on his set,” she explained in an interview with Flair Italy.

“But lately I have decided to face my fears. Lars is special, different from the descriptions.”

Kirsten is renowned for her varied work in the film industry, including Spider-Man and Interview with the Vampire.

The 29-year-old star would love to work with iconic film director Quentin Tarantino, who is best known for films including Pulp Fiction, Inglourious Basterds and Kill Bill.

“I just know that I’d love to work with Quentin Tarantino. He is my favourite director! He is a great man,” she gushed.
