After a period out of the limelight, Kirsten Dunst is back to the big leagues with her award winning performance in Melancholia. But enough about acting and films and all that stuff. Kirsten recently sat down with Elle magazine and reminded us all that she has big boobs. You know, in case we forgot while she was away. And she also wants you to know that she has no body issues whatsoever, you guys. Zero. Do it up, girl!
Kiki strips down for some nude scenes in Melancholia, but apparently she didn’t stress or obsess over it one bit. “I didn’t work out beforehand, it was all very natural.” In fact, she seems to love her body more than we’ll ever love our first-born. “I don’t have any real body issues. I never really overeat, I shed weight in the summer, put it on in the winter.” She’s even embraced her imperfections, including ones we’re pretty sure don’t exist. “I love my snaggle fangs,” she says. “They give me character and character is sexy.” Does she have snaggle fangs? Is that a thing?
And, of course, here’s your helpful boob reminder. “Yes, I do have big boobs. People don’t realize because I cover up a lot, but they are there. Big boobs.” If you’ve ever seen the Spiderman movies, we’re pretty sure you realized. There’s been much written about Kirsten’s battles with depression, so it’s good to see that she seems so much happier! Keep it up, lady.
Lars Von Trier may put his actresses through hell, but it certainly seems to pay off in the awards department. Kirsten Dunst managed to score Best Actress at Cannes‘ closing ceremony this weekend, despite Melancholia director Von Trier’s instantly infamous rant about “understanding” Hitler at a press conference last week. “This is an honor that’s once in a lifetime. Thank you to the Cannes Film Festival for allowing the film to still be in competition,” said the actress, who also thanked Von Trier, now a “persona non grata” at Cannes for “giving me the opportunity to be so brave in this film.”
With Dunst’s career taking a tumble following the end of the Spider-Man trilogy and a stint in rehab, this prestigious award could be the beginning of a major comeback for her. Could she carry the buzz to the Academy Awards when Melancholia comes out stateside in November? It probably depends whether Von Trier can keep his mouth shut—though it’s possible Dunst’s performance at the press conference only helped her get the nod.
While Lars von Trier’s Nazi comments prompted the Cannes film festival to declare him a persona non grata (Latin for “crazy crackers non trainwreck”), apparently Lars von Triers Cannes ban wasn’t enough of a hint for the Melancholia director to shut his pie hole. “I have to say I’m a little proud of being named a persona non grata. I think my family would be proud,” von Trier told festival journalists. “What I said was completely stupid but I am absolutely no Mel Gibson.” Hmm, a famous cinematic figure repeatedly making highly offensive, arguably anti-Semitic comments? It all sounds pretty familiar to us. If Jodie Foster rushes to Von Triers defense, we might have a Groundhog’s Day-type situation on our hands.
However, despite von Trier’s half-hearted attempt to apologize (“It’s a pity because (Jewish festival head) Gilles Jacob is a close personal friend of mine,” he said), the risk of a Lars von Trier Mel Gibson comparison was apparently not enough to make the director shut up about Hitler. “What I meant was I could imagine what it was like for Hitler in the bunker, making plans. Not that I would do what Hitler did,” Lars said, trying to explain his comments. Okay, that’s it von Trier. You’ve said your peace, now let’s just…oh come on! “Because even if I was Hitler – and I must now state for the record I am not Hitler – but even if I was Hitler and I made a great film, Cannes should select it,” said Von Trier. Wow, it might get so bad, Mel Gibson will have to distance himself from a person making outrageously bizarre comments. We are truly through the looking-glass, people.
With Lars Von Trier declared “persona non grata” by the Cannes Film Festival following the director’s Nazi jokes at yesterday’s press conference for his new film Melancholia, last night’s premiere may wind up the last time he gets to shock the famous and the French at the annual event. Helping him go out with a bang was star Charlotte Gainsbourg, sharing her late stage of pregnancy with the world through a bra-bearing, see-through top, and helping us understand what kind of woman makes more than one movie with Lars Von Trier. Meanwhile, 63-year-old Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood showed up with 23-year-old girlfriend Ana Araujo, and Udo Kier was Udo Kier. Why Mel Gibson didn’t join Jodie Foster on the red carpet is a mystery, as is the lack of crying, elderly drag queens and fat, cartwheeling circus clowns with blood dripping from their mouths.
See photos from the premiere below, and wonder whether Kirsten Dunst will stick to American movies from here on out.
You know what a press conference with Kirsten Dunst and Charlotte Gainsbourgdoesn’t need? Barely sensical Nazi jokes from Lars Von Trier. The Melancholia director made his beautiful stars visibly uncomfortable earlier today when he decided to talk about how he “understands” Hitler, among other Nazi things. FYI, the man who raised Von Trier was Jewish, though Lars later learned he was actually the product of an affair his mom had with her German employer:
The only thing I can tell you is that I thought I was a Jew for a long time and was very happy being a Jew, then later on came [director] Susanne Bier, and suddenly I wasn’t so happy about being a Jew. That was a joke. Sorry. But it turned out that I was not a Jew. If I’d been a Jew, then I would be a second-wave Jew, a kind of a new-wave Jew, but anyway, I really wanted to be a Jew and then I found out that I was really a Nazi, because my family is German. And that also gave me some pleasure.
So, I, what can I say? I understand Hitler. I think he did some wrong things but I can see him sitting in his bunker. I’m saying that I think I understand the man. He is not what we could call a good guy, but yeah, I understand much about him and I sympathize with him.. But come on! I’m not for the Second World War. And I’m not against Jews. No, not even Susanne Bier. I am very much for them. As much as Israelis are a pain in the ass. How do I get out of this sentence? Okay, I am a Nazi. As for the art, I’m for Speer. Albert Speer I liked. He was also one of God’s best children. He has a talent that…Okay, enough.
On top of that riffage (which had Dunst diving behind him, crying “Oh god!”), Von Trier also joked about her and Gainsbourg wanting to make a porno with him (“They said, ‘we don’t give a s— about dialogue. We just want to have a lot of very, very unpleasant sex.'”), and praised Dunst for her “knowledge of depression.” While those familiar with Von Trier’s wit (and work) won’t be too scandalized by any of this, it really would be a shame if his loose tongue distracted innocents from the film itself, which looks crazy enough without his commentary. See photos of the film’s stars in the gallery below.
Kirsten Dunst‘s career flatlined after a series of flops and a rehab stay, but her overdue comeback may be underway thanks to the upcoming Melancholia, directed by that crazy Dane Lars Von Trier. The trailer initially looks like a simple family drama, with Alexander Skarsgard as her husband-to-be and Charlotte Gainsbourg, Charlotte Rampling, Kiefer Sutherland and John Hurt among the grumpy friends and family at the wedding. Then comes the twist: a previously undetected planet has been hiding behind the sun (we’re not making this up) and is scheduled to collide with Earth, ensuring our destruction. Behind the sun—the last place astronomers would ever think to look!
Check out the slightly NSFW trailer to see Dunst arguing with on-screen sister Gainsbourg (who we’re surprised to see working with Von Trier again after the brutal Antichrist), shooting electricity out of her fingers, and—for a split second, from far away—laying nude under the stars. Call us Dieter from Sprockets, cuz this trailer makes us as happy as a little girl. Art!
