Kirsten Dunst: A male director made a totally improper comment to me at 16

Kirsten Dunst is on a sofa in the West End of London, but her body clock is still somewhere above the Azores. The 41-year-old actress has jet-lag – and is clinging to the upholstery as if for dear life. First thing this morning she was talking to the BBC, but en route to elevenses with the Telegraph, she made a hotel pit stop to change from her more glamorous on-camera attire into a comfortable black blouse and trousers.

“I am going. To make. A cup. Of TEEEEEEEEA,” she says, very brightly and deliberately, and shuffles over to the kettle on the sideboard.

The star of Spider-Man, Marie Antoinette and Melancholia – about as wide-ranging a CV as the laws of spacetime allow – is in the UK for the launch of her new film Civil War. Two days earlier, she left her two boys at home in Los Angeles with their dad, the Killers of the Flower Moon actor Jesse Plemons, “and I boarded my flight to London thinking ‘way-hey!’ Then we landed, had our screening, all went out together for a nice dinner. And now…” She makes a long croaking noise, like a frog.

Not that her three-year break has been time off. Dunst gave birth to her second son James in May 2021 – who was conceived on the evening of the wrap party for her and Plemons’ first film together, The Power of the Dog. And nine months after that, she was filming Civil War in Atlanta, with James’s older brother Ennis, now nearly six, sometimes visiting the set. Even so, Civil War’s release in UK cinemas next week marks the end of Dunst’s longest break from our screens since the former child star was her eldest son’s age.
