Kirsten played the immortal Claudia in 1994’s ‘Interview with a Vampire,’ one of the movies that started the vampire craze!

Long before Twilight, The Vampire Diaries or True Blood, when she was just 12-years-old, Kristen Dunst starred alongside Brad Pitt in the film Interview With A Vampire and even shared an on screen kiss him! Take THAT, Bella! “We were the original vampires!” Kirsten, 28, proudly told HollywoodLife.com on Dec. 1 at the NYC premiere of her upcoming movie, All Good Things.

But Kirsten’s not exactly jealous of her fellow blood suckers‘ fame today. And sorry, Edward Cullen — there’s someone else Kirsten says she’d like to sink her fangs into!

“I love all the Twilight movies, but my favorite vampire is Alexander Skarsgard from True Blood,” she says. “He played my husband in a film I recently did and he is so funny, but you never expect ‘Eric’ to be that way!”

If there’s one word that’s probably never been used to describe a Kirsten Dunst movie, it’s “challenging.” Not that she hasn’t been in some entertaining films over the years. She was great as vampire jailbait in Interview With a Vampire, a cheerleader with strong opinions about racism in Bring It On, and an archduchess with a taste for 80s New Wave in Marie Antoinette. But even her finer cinematic moments have been less about Oscar buzz and more about Teen Choice Award buzz. Her most famous movie role, as Mary Jane Watson in Spider-Man and its two blockbuster sequels, nabbed her an MTV Movie Award for best kiss in 2002, and even the least snarky of critics had to concede that it might be the top of the accolades mountain for her.

But everything you thought you knew about Kirsten Dunst might be about to change. After a two-year hiatus, the now 28-year-old Dunst is staging a comeback, and not of the signing-on-to-the-inevitable-Spider-Man-sequel variety. It started earlier this year, when she appeared in a bizarre art video for an exhibit at London’s Tate Modern, in which Dunst wore a blue wig and Sailor Moon costume and danced through Tokyo’s Akihabara shopping district to the tune of “I’m Turning Japanese,” for some reason. Opening nationwide tomorrow, she co-stars (alongside Ryan Gosling) in All Good Things, a feel-not-good romance and docu-drama, loosely based on the true story of New York real estate millionaire/drag queen Robert Durst and his disappearing wife. It’s the perfect film for anyone who loved Elizabethtown but wished it had more emotional abuse and uxoricide. Dunst has also been working on two new film projects—On the Road, adapted from the Jack Kerouac novel that inspired thousands of useless poetry M.F.A.s, and Melancholia, from filmmaker Lars von Trier, whose last movie featured Willem Dafoe ejaculating blood. It’s possible that Dunst is maturing as an artist, finally taking on roles that ask more of her than flashing her dimples and being adored by her male co-stars. Or maybe she’s going through a stage, like all young adults do, forging an identity by pretending to be interested in beat poetry and art-house films. Regardless of whether she succeeds, it’s admirable that she’s wandered so far outside her comfort zone. Even if her fanbase accepts her new “adult” direction, there isn’t a Teen Choice Award for best dysphoric topless scene.

When I called Dunst to talk about All Good Things, it was like talking to any of her movie characters. The meter of her voice, the inflections—it was all intimately familiar. The only difference between Dunst the actress and her on-screen persona(s) was that when she laughed, she actually said the word “Ha,” like she was reading stage directions.

Kirsten Dunst took umbrage at the cast of “Jersey Shore” for not being actual residents of the Garden State.

“None of those people are from New Jersey!” Dunst said last night during the premiere of her latest film “All Good Things” co-starring Ryan Gosling at the SVA Theater in Chelsea.

“I’m from New Jersey – they’re not from New Jersey!”

The blonde starlet said she has seen the show once. Her TV show preference? “Mad Men.” But the award-winning actress said she hardly tunes into the tube – she watches most of favorite shows on the Web.

Kirsten Dunst stars as the wife of the disturbed son of a New York real estate millionaire in All Good Things, the tragic tale of a marriage gone bad. Inspired by a famous missing person’s case from the 1980s, All Good Things explores what may have happened to the missing woman, putting forth a version of events which show that in all likelihood she was murdered.

At the LA press day for the Magnolia Pictures release, Dunst admitted she wasn’t aware of the real missing person’s case the film is based on, but she did get to know the ins and outs of the true story while preparing for the part. She also revealed what her working relationship was like with co-star Ryan Gosling (who plays her abusive husband) and how a particularly difficult scene affected the Oscar-nominated actor.

On true crime stories:

Kirsten Dunst: “I don’t think I watch enough TV to get into it. When I sit on the couch with my grandma, we definitely get into some Law and Order and CSI and stuff, but yeah, I’m not an aficionado of true crime.”

On her opinion as to who’s actually guilty:

Kirsten Dunst: “I don’t know what happened, but yes, I think he probably killed his wife, otherwise the family would have helped find her, you know? This big corporation with all this money helped her family none whatsoever? Their daughter-in-law? Why wouldn’t they help find her?”

On her knowledge of the real story and researching the role:

Kirsten Dunst: “I didn’t know it either. Part of the reason, I think, not a lot of people knew about it is because it kind of got shoved under the rug. And also, in terms of research, Andrew did a documentary about everything that happened before. I saw that a year before we even made the film. He had gone and researched and interviewed anyone who was willing to talk about what had happened, from neighbors to anyone who was around. I also met with her brother, who’s also portrayed in the film. I had dinner at the family’s house and everything.”

Kirsten Dunst has been in show business since she was just three years old, and the film veteran, now 28, has become so accustomed to the ins and outs of acting that baring her body for the big screen is no big deal.

“I forgot I even did it,” Dunst told Pop Tarts, when we questioned her topless shower scene with Ryan Gosling in the upcoming crime drama “All Good Things.” “I don’t even think about it… We really got to know each other through eight weeks of rehearsal, it was important we felt very comfortable with each other.”

The film takes on one of the most notorious missing persons’ cases in New York history, that of real estate mogul Robert Durst who was suspected but never tried for killing his wife Kathie in the 1980’s.  Dunst plays the role of Kathie in “All Good Things”, and hopes that the film may lead to more clues being uncovered to solve the real life murder mystery.

But back to Dunst’s career and that pesky habit of forgetting about certain moments, these days she tells us she feels far removed from her younger years as a child actress who sparked a wave of criticism in 1994 when she kissed Brad Pitt (nineteen years her senior) in “Interview With the Vampire.”

“It feels like a really long time ago, like a totally different career almost… I know it is mine, but I was eleven, it was such a long time ago,” she said.

And we’ll have to keep our eyes peeled for the upcoming “Melancholia” starring Dunst, Alexander Skarsgard and Kiefer Sutherland slated for release in March – because there’s something she doesn’t want her parents to see…

“I watch my movies but sometimes I get embarrassed – like if my mom or dad saw this movie, so certain scenes – oh God. This next movie that’s coming out I’m really going to be embarrassed,” Dunst lamented. “You know, when you’re friends know you so well, and then you do these things that really surprise them.”

But when it comes to the next phase of her life, it seems Dunst is focusing on the personal in addition to the professional.

“I don’t have a goal for the next ten years, except I want to have kids,” she added. “[And ]I would like to direct.”

The drama All Good Things, co-starring Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst, was inspired by the events of the most notorious missing person’s case in New York history. Both a love story and murder mystery, the story of Robert Durst, of the wealthy real estate dynasty, was that of a man suspected of, but never tried for, the murder of his wife Kathie, who disappeared in 1982 and was never found. Renamed David Marks (Ryan Gosling) and Katie McCarthy (Kirsten Dunst) for the film, newly discovered facts, court records and speculation about the case and the circumstances surrounding it are the foundation for an imaginative and spellbinding story of family, obsession, love and loss.

During a roundtable interview at the film’s press day, actress Kirsten Dunst talked about her desire to make sure her character never came across as a victim, the experience of meeting some of the real woman’s family members and how difficult it was for co-star Ryan Gosling to play the more physically aggressive moments. She also talked about what it was like working with Lars Von Trier on Melancholia, said she’s looking forward to seeing what they do with the Spider-Man franchise since she’s a fan of Andrew Garfield, and mentioned that she’d be shooting her role in On The Road in a couple weeks. Check out what she had to say after the jump:

Question: When you do a movie like this, do you try not to have and opinion on whether this man murdered his wife or not?

KIRSTEN DUNST: I wanted to make sure I wasn’t a victim throughout the film. (Director) Andrew Jarecki and I really talked about that because he didn’t want me to bring in the shovel, but I had to go in there like I was going to kill him. That is how I wanted it to be. I don’t know what happened, but yes I think he probably killed his wife. Otherwise, the family would have helped find her. This big corporation with all this money helped her family, none whatsoever. It was their daughter-in-law. Why wouldn’t they help find her?

Did you do any research into this story, or did you feel that you really didn’t need to because it was just a movie?

IF there were one person you’d expect to take issue with “All Good Things,” the new movie directed by Andrew Jarecki, it would be Robert A. Durst, since it implicates him in three killings, two of which he is depicted as committing and a third as orchestrating.

“All Good Things,” directed by Andrew Jarecki, includes restaging a seedy Times Square where the Durst Organization was a major landlord.

In several brief telephone conversations, his first in years about deaths in which he has long been a suspect, Mr. Durst, the real estate scion whose wealthy family helped to redevelop Times Square in the 1990s, said he actually liked the movie.

The actor who played him? Ryan Gosling? “Close,” he said. “Not as good as the real thing.”

Kirsten Dunst, though, was pretty much a ringer, he said, for his wife, Kathie, whom he has long been suspected of murdering.

“Parts made me cry,” said Mr. Durst, 67, whose travails have commanded lurid headlines for nearly three decades.

It all began with the mysterious 1982 disappearance of his young wife, a beauty who had been considering divorce, followed 18 years later by the execution-style murder of a close friend as investigators looked to question her. It ultimately featured cross-dressing, dismemberment and a 45-day manhunt stretching from Galveston, Tex., to California and New York.

Though investigators sought to question Mr. Durst about his wife’s disappearance and the 2000 murder of his friend, Susan Berman, in Los Angeles, he has never been charged in either case. He was, however, charged in the 2001 death of a former rooming-house neighbor, Morris Black, whose body he dismembered and threw in Galveston Bay. But a Texas jury found he acted in self-defense, and he ended up serving four years on lesser charges, including jumping bail and evidence tampering.
