Kirsten Dunst Defends Lars Von Trier's Hitler Comments

Kirsten Dunst walks around the East Village with an iced coffee on Tuesday (May 31) in New York City.

Last month, the 29-year-old actress hit the Cannes Film Festival, where she was named Best Actress for her work in Melancholia.

The film’s director, Lars Von Trier, was thrown out after telling reporters during a press conference that he could understand Hitler.

“It just came out wrong, that’s not Lars at all,” Kirsten later said.

“He was trying to make people laugh by telling the story of his life but it was not the right audience for it. He doesn’t speak English that often, he’s been in Denmark for a long time. It just didn’t translate well,” she added.
