Kirsten Dunst Talks Bad Boys & Depression
Kirsten Dunst has had a hell of a time these past few years. Remember back when she was in Spider-Man and on top of the world? Well, she’s had it a bit rocky since then. The Improper has some quotes from Kirsten’s latest interview with Elle UK where she talks about finally giving up on dating the bad boy and being treated for depression.
Kirsten tells Elle, “We all want the bad guy who doesn’t give you what you want. I did a lot of sitting in my car, listening to sad music, crying over boys.” Kirsten has been dating Rilo Kiley band member Jason Boesel, and the two seem to be quite happy together. “[Jason’s] not into partying and it works. We have similar schedules: long periods of time off and periods of mad work. When I’ve finished work, I travel to be with him. It’s special.”
In 2008, Kirsten was treated for depression following her break-up with Johnny Borrell of Razorlight. She says of that time, “I know what it’s like to lose yourself, to no longer know the difference between right or wrong.” She definitely put that experience to good use though, playing a depressed bride in Lars Von Trier’s Melancholia, for which she won Best Actress at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.
Life seems to be back on track for the star who, according to her IMDb profile, has four different projects in various stages of production. Enjoy some shots of Kirsten’s photo shoot for Elle UK.
