KD at 35

Tomorrow, Kirsten Dunst turns thirty-five, and that seems almost impossible; was it that long ago that her character in Interview with the Vampire got a kiss from no less than Brad Pitt? (Later, she said that she thought Pitt had cooties, which might explain something some day.)

What I can’t figure out is why she’s not a bigger star than she is. She has an enviable track record, including Little Women, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and various Spider-Man vehicles.

This breezy little yellow number caught my eye — WTF? What’s the deal with those shoes?

Wow. Wonder how well that would go over in Japan?

No one would even notice. (I really think so.)

This copy of the video is better, but it’s not embeddable.

    She was also in Hidden Figures, and she definitely played older.

    I think it’s because of her weirdly-sleepy eyes. She never quite seems to focus. But what do I know?

    She has been around seemingly forever. First recall seeing her in Jumanji. Given her steady work one can’t say she’s had a bad career at all, even if she isn’t considered a premium acting talent. (I wonder what that sort of thing even means, anyway… if you do well in the role, what’s the problem?)
