She’s been rumoured to have drug and alcohol problems for years, but Spider-Man Actress Kirsten Dunst’s reasons for checking into a rehab in 2008 were for OD’ing on Hollywood aka depression, Dunst, 33, revealed exclusively to Town & Country magazine.
“What people expect of an actor is totally ridiculous,”
sorority girl Mary Jane Dunst told the publication in riddles and clichés. “It’s unfair that an artist is expected to speak really well (cough) in public and have skin tough enough to withstand sometimes really hurtful criticism, but also, in order to do the job, be really sensitive and in touch with their feelings. So all you can do is be yourself—just be who the hell you are.”
Dunst claims the pressure of Hollywood led her to the arms of rehab centre Cirque Lodge and after a stint at the for-profit centre, Dunst relocated to New York where she recovered by accepting roles in All Good Things with Ryan Gosling and controversial filmmaker Lars Von Tiers’ Melancholia.
Dunst will make her TV début in the second season of Fargo, which will première in September.
