Kirsten Dunst

Her role as Claudia in 'Interview with the Vampire' (1994)
Background:In the hit-movie, Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (1994), Louis (Brad Pitt), turns a little girl named Claudia (Kirsten Dunst) into a vampire which now has the capability to live through centuries.  Kirsten Dunst has that capability. The young actress' talent could make her a legend. "There seems to be the experience of a 35-year-old actress in the body of this little girl." People, November 1994 In Spider-Man 2 (2004), you find Peter Parker (also Spider-Man, played by Tobey McGuire) struggling with his destiny while striving to capture the heart of the girl of his dreams, Mary Jane Watson (played by Kirsten Dunst), and another successful super-hero movie is launched. Again, so is Kirsten's career. She may not be the tallest, or the oldest, or even the most beautiful actress out there, but she has one major component that many actors don't have... Kirsten can act. And that, along with the continuing selection of good roles, just may boost this young girl to legend status.KikiChildhood and Family:Kirsten Caroline Dunst was born on April 30, 1982 in Point Pleasant, New Jersey, to parents Klaus and Inez. She has a younger brother named Christian Dunst. She graduated High School in 2000 after attending the Notre Dame High School in Los Angeles, California. Her parents where seperated with Kirsten living with her mother and brother in California while her father lived in New Jersey. "I'd like to grow up and be beautiful. I know it doesn't matter, but it doesn't hurt." Kirsten's is nicknamed Kiki.Vampires to Super-HeroesCareer:Kirsten Dunst career starts at just 3 years of age. Working in commercials, little Kirsten had performed in over 70 before landing her first role (a small one) in Woody Allen's film New York Stories (1989). A few other tidbit roles followed before Kirsten dazzled and amazed critics and audiences with her portrayal of Claudia in the hit movie Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (1994), also starring Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt. Her role earned several nominations and awards, including a Golden Globe nomination, a MTV Award for Best Breakthrough Performance, and a Saturn award for Best Young Actress. Her career propelled forward with other noteworthy performances such as Younger Amy March in Little Women (1994), Judy Shepherd in Jumanji (1995), Sara Weaver in TV's The Siege at Ruby Ridge (1996), Tina Spangler in TV's Fifteen and Pregnant (1998), and Christy Fimple in Small Soldiers (1998). In 1999 her role as Lux Lisbon in Sofia Coppola's Independent film, The Virgin Suicides, won high reviews, and her energetic role as Torrance Shipman in Bring It On (2000) showed a more comedic acting side. Kirsten pocketed more roles until she found herself the love interest of Spider-Man in the highly successful Spider-Man (2002). In Spider-Man 2 (2004), we find Kirsten back as character Mary Jane Watson in the well-received sequel.

I've been lucky to find people who want to work with me, whom I respect and like, but the truth is there aren't that many good projects out there. And we make way, way too many movies. So it's not always going to happen with every project. But I try and wait it out.More Kirsten Dunst quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
