Kristen Dunst: I Strugged With Depression

Kirsten Dunst took a break from filming All the Good Things on New York’s Upper West Side to clarify some rumors about her rehab stint.

“I didn’t go to Cirque Lodge for alcohol abuse or drug abuse,” Dunst, 26, told E! “I went there for depression. It was a good six months before I decided to go away. I was struggling, and I had the opportunity to go somewhere and take care of myself. I was fortunate to have the resources to do it. My friends and family thought it was a good idea, too. But I didn’t know where to go. My doctor recommended Cirque Lodge.”

Continued Kirsten, “There’s been a lot of misrepresentation about what is going on in my life, and it’s been very painful for my friends and family. Everyone feels like they have to defend me. They hear the rumors, and it puts them in a defensive position. Now that I’m feeling stronger, I was prepared to say something… Depression is pretty serious and should not be gossiped about.”
