In the new issue of W, guest editor Sofia Coppola interviews her “first leading lady and favourite California blonde” Kirsten Dunst. Among the topics that the two discuss: how to not get taken advantage of by directors, alternative career paths, favourite and least favourite past experiences, and nudity.

Asked if she has ever been “pounced on” by a director, Dunst replied, “No, I don’t give off that vibe. I think that you court that stuff, and to me it’s crossing a boundary that would hinder the trust in your working relationship.”

When the conversation shifted to dream jobs other than acting, Dunst said that she wouldn’t mind being an interior designer: “I love interior design—maybe I’d do that, but if I did an interior, I’d want to live in it. I would stick to a creative job.”

Regarding the least favourite period of her life, Dunst said, “Hardest age was 27; I had to figure out how to navigate differently through life.” But whatever difficulties Dunst went through back then seem to have passed. “My favourite age is now. I love my friendships, and I know I have fun things to look forward to.”

Asked if she finds doing nude scenes in films scary, Dunst said, “I don’t mind it if it feels appropriate for the film, but it’s never not nerve-racking.”
