Kirsten Dunst Doesn’t Sympathize With Casting Couch Victims — Report
Kirsten Dunst’s latest interview will make your head spin!
In an interview with W Magazine’s guest editor and director Sofia Coppola, Kirsten revealed just how much sympathy she has for actors who are victims of the casting couch. When Sofia asked her if a director ever “pounced” on her to help her land a part, this is what she had to say:
“No. I don’t give off that vibe,” Kirsten said in the interview. “I think that you court that stuff, and to me it’s crossing a boundary that would hinder the trust in the your working relationship.”
Well, some of Hollywood would probably disagree with her — most notably Susan Sarandon, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Charlize Theron according to the Huffington Post — all who have discussed being pressured to have sex to further their careers.
Kirsten’s new statement comes on the tail end of a previous controversial interview, in which she had a lot to say about gender roles.
“I feel like the feminine has been a little undervalued,” Kirsten said to Harper’s Bazaar U.K. “We all have to get our own jobs and make our own money, but staying at home, nurturing, being the mother, cooking — it’s a valuable thing my mom created. And sometimes, you need your knight in shining armor. I’m sorry. You need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman. That’s why relationships work.”
Oof. Maybe Kirsten should stay away from interviews for a while. At least until she stifles her desire to eat her own foot.
