Kirsten Dunst Talks About the 'Unfair' & 'Ridiculous' Expectations Surrounding Actors

Kirsten Dunst takes the cover of Town and Country magazine‘s September 2015 issue wearing an all Prada look.

Here’s what the 33-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On the expectations for actors: “What people expect of an actor is totally ridiculous. It’s unfair that an artist is expected to speak really well in public and have skin tough enough to withstand sometimes really hurtful criticism, but also, in order to do the job, be really sensitive and in touch with their feelings. So all you can do is be yourself – just be who the hell you are.”

On her boyfriend Garrett Hedlund: “We’ve been together for three and a half years, so, yes, it’s going really well. We’re the same age. We have similar backgrounds. He feels like family to me.”

On being discouraged by the Hollywood boys club: “You know what? I felt that way when I was younger, particularly being on the Spider-Man sets, which was pretty much all guys. But the older I get, the less I feel that way. What I’ve found is that the cool guys now want to hang out with the cool girls.”
