A new interview was published with Kirsten this week, to Parade Magazine.

Besides The Beguiled, she also talks about The Bel Jar, and a little bit about her breakout roles (Interview with a Vampire, and The Virgin Suicides).

I reproduced it below, and also added in our gallery a new portrait she did to Variety. Enjoy!

It sounds like things get pretty heated in The Beguiled.
We bring this soldier into our house and he manipulates all of us. It’s Southern gothic and suspense.

Do you think the dynamics of the women of that era were different?
Their circumstances make the whole situation more heightened; they physically can’t leave. There is an element of constant danger; they’re hearing bombs in the distance.

This version of The Beguiled is being told from the woman’s point of view instead of the soldier’s point of view, like the 1971 movie starring Clint Eastwood. Is that better for storytelling?
I think it’s just a different take. I do think it’s interesting to have it from the female perspective because [otherwise] it can become a little one-note. The other way, it’s like there’s so many women in the house, you want to see how their journey is being affected rather than just seeing the male perspective of that, so I think it’s more interesting.

Over the years you’ve chosen roles with dark elements. Is there an attraction in that for you?
I’ve also chosen comedies too. I feel like I’ve done a good balance of both. I feel like Fargo, even though it was dark, had comedy.

The previous season of TV’s Fargo brought you an Emmy nomination and a fiancé [co-star Jesse Plemons]. Do you have wedding plans?
Yeah, [but] I’m someone who wants to keep it very intimate. That’s the one word your mother doesn’t want to hear, but that’s all I want to say.

Along the lines of Fargo—is there possibly more TV in your future?
There’s a TV show in development for AMC that I’m starring in that, hopefully, we’ll shoot in the fall. It’s called On Becoming a God in Central Florida. George Clooney’s company is producing it.

Is The Bell Jar, which you’re going to direct, next for you?
Yes. We’re working on financing now. It’s a little early to talk about it. Also, I did a movie with my girlfriends called Woodshock. Laura and Kate Mulleavy, who do the fashion line Rodarte, wrote and directed it as their first movie. That’s coming out in the fall. It’s about a woman suffering a loss.

Do you feel that you had a breakout role or do you think your career built slowly?
Of course, Interview With the Vampire was my breakout role because that was the first huge thing that I did that people saw me in. I think being a child actor, starting out so young, it made it easier when I got older because I’m not impressed by anything anymore. You know what I mean? I was lucky that The Virgin Suicides was such a good transition film for me in terms of growing up and being sexualized in a way, but in a safe way, because it was Sofia Coppola [directing], and it was beautiful and innocent. I think I always had good balance because I chose the films I wanted to be in, so I feel like someone of my generation would feel like they grew up with me. I didn’t make that decision consciously, like, “I want to do this fun movie”; it was because it was what I wanted to act in and what I wanted to see.

When you wake up in the morning, is one of your goals still to be excited for the day?
I was very young when I said that. But yeah, it’s a nice goal. I wish we didn’t have cell phones by our beds anymore. I keep thinking I’m going to plug it in the kitchen and get myself an alarm clock.
