Kristen Dunst fought for her latest film.
The 33-year-old address has an array of movies under her belt, from gothic tale Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles to the superhero Spider-Man trilogy.
Her upcoming feature, Midnight Special, co-stars Adam Driver and Joel Edgerton, and it’s a project Kirsten was determined to land.
“It’s about a young boy, my son, who has special powers. It reminds me of Close Encounters of the Third Kind. I think Jeff Nichols is one of the best young directors of our time,” she gushed to Gotham magazine. “I’ve wanted to work with him for a while, so I fought to be in this movie. I love Take Shelter [Nichols’ 2011 thriller], and I really like Mud [a coming-of-age drama he wrote and directed, starring Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon].”
Kirsten has been acting since she was a child in the 80s and by the time she took the forefront as Torrance Shipman in 2000’s Bring It On, she already had an impressive résumé. But it was the teen hit that most reflected her character.
“When I was 16 and did Bring It On. I was that girl. It was like me being in high school as myself. It wasn’t a stretch at all. I was a cheerleader, my best friend was a cheerleader. I wasn’t in competitions, but I watched them on TV,” she explained.
Kirsten was interviewed by fellow actress Julianne Moore for Gotham and the 54-year-old admitted that although none of her onscreen alter egos reflect her, she can find something to relate to in all of them.
The two women also shared their desire to work with one another, as they think they’d have a great time.
