Kirsten Dunst - "Harper's Bazaar" October 2008

Kirsten Dunst -

Poolside Kristen Dunst is soaking wet on the October 2008 cover of Harper’s Bazaar, out Sept. 23. Here are some interview highlights from the 26-year-old actress:

On growing up and moving on from being a child actress: “When you spend your entire life as a child actress, being told where to go and where to stand, you’re performing constantly for people. It definitely breeds the kind of person who’s dependent on other people’s approval. If I’d trusted myself and listened to myself all the times that I ignored myself, I would have been fine. But everyone has to learn their lesson, and now I’ve got it.”

On staying mum about seeking treatment for depression at Utah’s Cirque Lodge: “I don’t want to go into too much detail because I give a quote and then it’s blogged about for the rest of my life on the Internet. [But] I’m great.”

On the blogs romantically linking her to Justin Long: “[The rumors] are the funniest thing on planet Earth. I don’t know him from Adam. I met him once and he and his friend were kind enough to walk me home. I’ve never seen him since.”

On having children of her own someday: “I can’t wait to have kids one day. I want to have kids and a farm with lots of animals on a lake.”

She can be seen next playing a celebrity journalist in the comedy How to Lose Friends and Alienate People, out Oct. 3.

  • Ivana

    Kirsten’s best look was when she was dating with Jake, she look so fresh and happy, sometimes even beautiful….
    but now she look sooo “I don’t know ” and she dress like old lady.. : ))))

  • mark

    hey, all you dipshits with neg comments, this interview was probably done about 3 months ago, so its true that she’d had never met him at the time… btw, she is awesome, rock on kiki!

  • gina

    I was going to say something about how she looks in this picture too. She looks so pale.


    I’ve always liked this girl…sure she’s made mistakes but I find her to be sweet!

  • Good victoria

    She is beautiful, and has always been a little pale….It is the red lipstick and nail polish that makes her skin seem paler….Her reason for depression rehab. is just that…HER OWN.!!!!!…..she is right when she says the paparazzi’s and other media will turn around and ” blog forever “, on something THEY made up, OR took out of context…Good for her on staying private !!!!

  • Paige

    Finally.. she’s using the potential she has to look totally gorgeous! I hate seeing her all grubbed out in awful clothes and stringy hair, when I know she’s much better then that. Beautiful cover!

  • Ha!

    Um, there weren’t rumors about him being with Kirsten Dunst three months ago (he was still with Drew Barrymore three months ago). And it doesn’t take that long to get an interview published.

  • Michell

    The red lipstick and fingernails doesn’t look right with her pale skin, the photog needs to fire whoever they hired to do her makeup

  • athena

    I Love this cover! It’s very classic looking and who better to have on their cover but a classic…she’s done some great roles and I love her Marie Antoinette role the best…okay, maybe just for the fashion…but, it was beautiful.

  • TR

    I love Kirsten. I wish she was still with Jake. I agree with #7… she looked better and happier when she was with him.

  • Carolina

    No. 12.- I wouldnt agree more…!

  • Jules

    is it me or does she look like a cross between gwyneth paltrow and heidi klum in that pic!!??

    she looks really pretty

  • Ryan

    She does look very pretty, her smile looks gorgeous, although it the skin is photoshopped white to the max…not too flattering, but all up gorgeous

  • eddie jones

    maybe if she spent a little more time taking care of herself and less time trying to pretend to be something she isn’t she and others like her wouldn’t be depressed once the cameras are off. all the fake fake fake comes to an end when your home alone, you can’t fake yourself to yourself.

  • Stella

    she’s beautiful!!!i love her!!!!

  • nowhere

    What’s with the scary clown make-up?

  • ****
