Kirsten Dunst, AKA Kiki-D, did a weird photo shoot for Bullett Magazine. The accompanying article, titled “Kirsten Dunst, In Defiance of Gravity” dubbed her “America’s Edgiest Sweetheart.” Uh. Okay.
Kirsten Dunst stands beneath a spotlight wearing a fringed Rodarte leather jacket that would look more at home on a Hells Angel than a movie star. Her fingers are twisted to read “blood,” and her side- swept blond hair exposes a dragon-shaped cuff adorning the perimeter of her left ear. When someone dares to suggest that it might be too much—making a gang sign for a fashion magazine—Dunst drops her runway-ready pout. “Come on, guys,” she says. “Let’s make this controversial. Let’s sell magazines!”
The actress, who, at 30, has both box-office appeal and indie clout, was born to werk it.
She’s been the object of national attention since age 11, when she held her own against Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise in Interview with the Vampire. She’s since cemented her A-list status, not only by balancing commercial work with independent fare, but also by injecting Hollywood blockbusters with art-house talent has attracted some of the great auteurs of our time: Sofia Coppola, Michel Gondry, and Lars von Trier. In the process, she’s become America’s edgiest sweetheart.
Is Kirsten Dunst “america’s edgiest sweetheart”? What do you think? I don’t know if I’d call her “America’s edgiest sweetheart” but I certainly WOULND’T call her one of the least sexiest actresses in Hollywood.
Check out the rest of the spread. She usually gives great photo shoot but I don’t like this one.
Kiki-D: born to werk it, never forget.
