Kirsten Dunst’s career never really took off. Why?

She was everywhere during the 90s and first 00s, The suicide virgins, Marie Antoinette or Spider-Man are star-making performances. She was a really good child actor who took roles from superstars like Scarlett Johansson.

I’ve always felt that she were never really valued by Hollywood. She has proven herself as a tremendous actress in roles like Melancholia or that Fargo season.

What happened with her career? If you looked at her in 2004 you could easily picture her having an Oscar by now. Is she difficult to work with? I’ve heard she had mental issues for a while and needed to take a break from Hollywood in one point of her life. But other less-talented stars like Downey Jr. have had major breaks out and they were able to make a huge comeback.

Are those rumors about Reese destroying her career because she was her major competitor true? What do you think about her acting? Does she deserve the place where she is now in Hollywood stardom?

Regarding the article at R1, I don’t know her box office numbers but aren’t the Spider-man films amongst her most seen roles? While it’s annoying to be associated with films you maybe just did for a pay cheque plenty of actors are known for their more popular film roles than the ones they win acclaim for. I doubt most people know her from Melancholia.

I like Dunst and I generally watch the projects she takes, but is an Oscar really necessary these days? I’d rather win the film festival awards. Does it hurt her financially not to win an Oscar? It’s not like an Oscar gives everybody the best work overnight and she’s already a name in the industry.

She won best actress at Cannes. Is regarded as an exquisite actress and has like a cult following. This after her child acting and commercial career. I think she has the career she’s interested in.

by Anonymousreply 9January 2, 2021 11:26 AM

Really? I think her career is one that most actors/actresses would be jealous of. She was nominated for a Golden Globe at 12 years old, and by the time she was 18, she'd already gotten a number of cult classics under her belt ("Drop Dead Gorgeous", "The Virgin Suicides", "Dick", "Bring It On") which have guaranteed her a lasting fanbase. She managed to pepper in oddball choices in even early on—her portrayal of Marion Davies in Peter Bogdanovich's "The Cat's Meow" sort of came out of left field as she was still doing teen flicks, but she was very good in it.

The "Spider Man" films obviously got her big mainstream attention, and while it did seem like she was going to get trapped in teen comedy hell for a moment in the early 2000s, she managed to push back against it with more hard-edged material like "All Good Things" and "Melancholia", both of which she was phenomenal in (she should have won an Oscar for "Melancholia", but the material was too avant-garde, plus Lars von Trier sabotaged their press junket). She was also very good in Jeff Nichols' bizarre sci-fi flick "Midnight Special" with Michael Shannon and Joel Edgerton.

In the last few years, she's had significant success doing character-driven television material ("Fargo", "On Becoming a God in Central Florida") that was nothing but praised. I am still bitter that she lost her Golden Globe for "Fargo" to the abysmal Lady Gaga, who turned in one of the worst performances I've ever seen on a television series in "American Horror Story: Hotel". Gaga bought that award—she did not earn it. When you compare the performances side-by-side, it is truly laughable that Gaga won. She deserves to be chased out of town with pitchforks for it.

Kirsten is fine. I have no doubt that she will go down as one of the greats of her generation.

R8 Kirsten was supposedly the first choice for Walk the line, but Reese somehow convinced producers through her connections and mean gossips about Kirsten not been in the right moment to behave professionally (drinking issues).

by Anonymousreply 11January 2, 2021 11:31 AM

I disagree with you totally, OP. If your gauge of 'taking off' is awards, then OK, but she works consistently on really interesting projects and her performances never fail.

She was under my radar until Melancholia, and that made her one of my favorite actors. She has a remarkable range, excelling in weird tragicomic roles like Becoming a God in Central Florida and Fargo, deeply tragic roles like Melancholia and trite roles like in Spider-Man and Marie Antoinette. Roles from her youth--Jumanji, Interview with the Vampire, Bring It On--are similarly diverse and are memorable.

I don't always love her projects, but I always love her roles in them. In my mind, she's in a league of special lead character actress-stars with Claire Danes and a few others who are generally overlooked by both awards committees and tabloids, and whom I consider to be as good as the best movie stars and generally more interesting than them.

I consider Kirsten to be one of the finest actresses in the business - and that is saying a lot considering that she was a successful child actor (and VERY FEW can ever make that next step). I love her skill, personality and overall presence. There is humbleness and playfulness that she brings to her work that I find...frankly impressive for Hollywood. I make a point to watch anything that she is in - and I love her creative choices (and general avoidance of big budget junk). I have met her out and about (Toluca Lake of all places) and she is charming, lovely and personable. And TINY in person. I really can't say enough good about her.

I agree with this, and not only in her acting. She can play humble and arrogant equally well, but she does seem both humble and confident in interviews. And yes, also playful. I have learned that celeb rumors usually are based in some truth and so perhaps she is an alcoholic, but she always comes across as totally down to Earth and likable in interviews. She seems well balanced and especially so for a former child star. She's like an anti-Gwyneth Paltrow in a way.

Kirsten Dunst has learned to take it all in stride when it comes to her career.

During a recent interview with Sirius XM’s In-Depth With Larry Flick, Dunst, 37, revealed “I’ve never been recognized in my industry.”

“Well, remember when Marie Antoinette — y’all panned it? And now you all love it,” Dunst said of the 2006 film. “Remember Drop Dead Gorgeous? Panned. Now you all love it.”

“It’s like interesting for me. I feel a lot of things I do people like later,” she revealed to Flick.

The star, who welcomed son Ennis Howard with fiancé Jesse Plemons in May 2018, also admits she would love to be recognized again during award season.

“I’ve never been nominated for anything. Maybe like, twice for a Golden Globe when I was little and one for Fargo. I always feel like nobody— I don’t know, maybe they just think I’m the girl from Bring It On,” she told Flick.

In 1996, Dunst was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Claudia in Interview with a Vampire. The actress has also starred in memorable films like Hidden Figures, Virgin Suicides, Spider-Man and The Beguiled.

“I am so chill. Maybe I don’t play the game enough? But then I do, I mean, I do everything I’m supposed to. It’s not like I’m rude or like, not doing publicity or anything,” she continued.

Dunst later shared, “I know that all you have is your work at the end of the day. And that’s all people really care about.”

“I’m intelligent enough to know that and have perspective,” Dunst told Flick.

However, she admitted, “It’d be nice to be recognized by your peers.”

Nonetheless, Dunst hasn’t let this feeling stop her from taking on dynamic roles and new projects.

The star’s latest work — On Becoming a God in Central Florida — premiered on Showtime earlier this month.

Dunst spoke to PEOPLE about the preparation she did before filming her role as Krystal Gill, explaining, “I watched some Honey Boo Boo and Toddlers & Tiaras for this role.”

R52 - I hated that too. Showtime had picked up a second season rather quickly if memory serves - and then I heard that it was basically canceled for good (out of the blue) just a short time later. Had there not been COVID, the second season would likely have started filming soon after the initial announcement that they had picked the show up. They don't procrastinate too much these days. Whatever the case, I love Kirtsten and can't wait to see what she does next. She is a rare talent in Hollywood and I believe that her unique role choices have kept her both interesting and in demand as an actress (even if her fame flies a bit more under the radar). She's playing the long game - so far so good. I like Jennifer Lawrence also (not nearly as much I enjoy Kirsten); the 2 actresses could not have had a more different career trajectory. Dunst knows what she is doing and will likely have far greater longevity than Lawrence despite never being an "It" actress and never burning as brightly. Of course, neither of them will ever need a job if they decided to retire tomorrow.

The quotes at R48 sound a lot more like sour grapes once you hear the audio.

I wonder if it's like a PR angle, like something she discusses with her PR and they say, "Well, we think you're strong enough that you can ask for recognition." And then they book her on somewhere like this Sirius Larry Flick show (which I've never heard of) and he sets the whole thing up for her to air out?

I mean she did just get multiple nominations for her amazing work in Fargo, she has won the Best Actress prize at Cannes (and other nominations and undoubtedly wins for Melancholia). She will always be a figure more for her work with Sofia Coppola, for whom she was at one time considered a muse, but also because of Spiderman and I should think Bring It On which is pretty big with a certain generation of women (and every generation that came after).

But yeah. I'm not sure why she's striking this pose. It doesn't help her with the Golden Globes for her to be saying, "I've never been given anything. Well, a couple of Golden Globe nominations when I was young." She was actually just nominated for a Golden Globe last year.

by Anonymousreply 76January 4, 2021 10:18 PM

R76 - her weight gain didn't help matters either. She became the "IT" girl of the moment on MTV in that Aerosmith video, then broke out in a very big way transitioning to the big screen with Clueless. Her acting skills were average at best (but certainly sufficient for that particular movie and genre). It was all about her "look" and her beauty really. She was harder to market after all of the well-reported wardrobe issues with that Batman movie and as she gained weight - her sexiness no longer translated the same on screen. The old adage about the camera adding 10 lbs. is actually quite true. I will never fail to be fascinated when I see a reality TV star (or on a more rare occasion - movie star) in person. They look so different - but almost always much "tinier" and...well, thinner in person. Some women in particular can be very beautiful in person while actually looking a tad chunky on a big screen. Some look very odd in person yet very fetching on film or in photos. Also, everyone gains weight in different ways - sometimes in face (never good for anyone on camera), sometimes hips/butt, sometimes - you get the point. The female stars who look the best often has very tiny frames, slender little limbs, long necks, cheekbones, big eyes, etc. When Silverstone gained weight, her look quick lost its edge. I'm sure she was still quite beautiful, but it no longer translated the same way on screen. Without acting talent to bolster her appeal - her fame dwindled quickly. She was only good for certain roles to begin with. Just my take on Alicia. I liked her fine, but she was no talented actress (like Kirsten and to a lesser degree IMO - Reese).

She is very hard edged and has little vulnerability. That makes it hard to cast her in lead roles.

I don't get it I think she has a great career. She's definitely been in a few modern classics and I'm sure at some point they'll finally nominate her for an Oscar.

Besides Julia Stiles, Thora Birch is another actor in Kirsten's age range that sort of stalled after a promising young start.

Kirsten is in her 30’s which I think can be a strange time for certain actresses because they’re not young enough for the young roles and not old enough for the older roles.

For example, Reese was so good in “Big Little Lies” and it was a role she could have never done 10 years ago.

Kirsten hasn’t gotten her life in the 40’s roles yet which I think have been working out well for a lot of actresses today.

She’s made some great movies with Coppola.

“Melancholia” was so beautiful and sad.

[quote]She won best actress at Cannes. Is regarded as an exquisite actress and has like a cult following. This after her child acting and commercial career. I think she has the career she’s interested in.

Exactly, as R9 said.

Would OP respect her more if she worked around the clock, anxious for every opportunity and every pay check like a Nicole Kidman? Dunst does interesting projects, and sometimes when the project itself falls short her performance is the interesting thing (even in something like Elizabethtown where her role is terrible but somehow she pulls it off and makes something better of it.)

Would she gain more respect by doing more Spider-Man and comic-based roles? It's where the money is, I suppose, but who wants to be push and shove to be Scarlett Johansen when you could relax, lead a more than comfortable life, and have a choice of interesting roles when you wanted?

She’s great. Loved her in Being A God In Central Florida. I felt totally cheated out of a 2nd season, I wouldn’t count her out. I think she has range and will be in the game for the long haul. She has chosen some interesting roles. I hope she is happy.

She doesn’t emote happiness or joy in a believable way. It always reads as forced and pretend.

by Anonymousreply 120October 5, 2021 5:55 PM

It wasn't Walk the Line that Witherspoon allegedly stole from Kiki, it was Inherent Vice. PTA really wanted Dunst to play Penny (they are old friends) but Reese used her CAA connections to nab that one.

Kiki has the career she wants, even if she'd like a little more peer-based recognition. She slowed down a bit to have her family and is now revving it up again, picking and choosing what she wants. She has always had that real 'edge' to her a bit, a snobbish kind of indie vibe, despite all of her prior blockbuster studio work. Many of her friends are arty or non-famous indie types who live in the Valley or LA-adjacent (see: Rodarte sisters and their crowd).

She seems happy with Plemons, but I wonder why no marriage yet. They are engaged, she wears a diamond he gave her years ago. Two kids and no final ring, you wonder why announce the engagement if you weren't planning on doing the full monty at the time.

(didn't read the whole thread so excuse me if this was already said.)

She was put in a mental institution for a while so I'd guess her personal issues either slowed down her desire to work or people got scared to hire her like they did with Winona Ryder.

Plus she was a child star. They rarely make it as adults.

by Anonymousreply 124October 10, 2021 5:25 AM

It's all how you look at it. Yes, compared to "Big stars" her career didn't take off. But, her career is probably better than 97% of people who ever acted. From that perspective, it took off plenty.

She's hard to cast because she's not Hollywood beautiful. She's only pretty in the way small-town homecoming queens in the Midwest are pretty. The camera does not hate her face, but it does not love it either.

Even so, she's a fine and intelligent actress given the right role.

R133, I knew people who went to school and did theater with her as well, and that was always the consensus I heard. Very bratty and pleased with herself, but she was a kid so I’ll cut her some slack.

She’s very good when she’s good but she always felt like a second choice actress. She’s who you hire when the actress you want has scheduling conflicts. Nothing more, nothing less. Not particularly exciting talent.

Ugh, I was waiting for the “Kiki” poster to show up and he didn’t disappoint. Giving her a cute nickname doesn’t do anything for those of us who see her as bland. You must.

Eh, she’s done ok for a 90s child/teen actor. She does seem more likeable on screen than in real life- not too likeable based on that architectural digest video, and I cant really say why. Come to think of it, there were so many of teen/child actors then of her age who got to carry their own indie films.

1st tier today: Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johannson 2nd tier: Michelle Williams 3rd tier: Kirsten Dunst, Anna Paquin, christina ricci 4th tier: Julia Stiles 5th tier are they even working they seem to be around but not sure: lelee sobieski, rachel leigh cook, thora birch, anna chlumsky, gabby hoffman

Thank you for the video. It's not my taste but can appreciate it. She used to date notorious drug addict Johnny Borrell from Razorlight who was also bisexual. This guy was into heroin even at the time he was with Kiki. She also used to take coke but hey who hasn't. So drug issues possibly for the time away. . .

by Anonymousreply 146October 10, 2021 7:15 PM

She did a spell at Cirque Lodge in the late aughties for what was at the time called 'depression', but what was in reality a spiraling heroin addiction. She was in fairly bad shape but pulled up and out of it.

She's been lucky in that many of her friends are non-Hollywood types, she is still close to her HS girlfriends and those who were with her in her earlier career (such as the Hallworths, who she has worked with for nearly two decades ). Although her mother was a bit of a typical stage mother, her father and stepmother are highly educated executives with no part in the star game, which helped keep her grounded. Her father is the one who put her in rehab when it mattered.

I think now that she's got the family life of her own she wanted (two kids, a solid partner), she's ready to plunge back into the acting pool to see where things go for her. She's done solid prestige television lead work and the new Campion movies is a critical success. Her career has been interesting in terms of the turns she's taken - she's worked steadily but every larger project she takes on seems like a 'comeback' in a way.
