Kirsten Dunst Talks About Depression

Ami Angelowicz / December 8, 2010

“I think most people in their twenties go through some sort of depression. If you’re successful at a young age, no matter the profession, there has to come a time when you reevaluate everything, what it means to you. Is this what I want to do for the rest of my life?”

Kirsten Dunst talks to New York about why we haven’t seen her in a while. Kirsten says she did a stint in rehab to treat her depression, which confuses me. Don’t you go to a therapist or a psych ward for depression? No judgment on getting help for it—I’ve been clinically depressed before, so I understand. Just seems odd to me. Either way, I’m glad Kirsten is back. []

See why her role in “All Good Things” appealed to her so much, after the jump:

“Katie had been torn down, and I know what it’s like to lose yourself, to no longer know the difference between right and wrong. I was ready to play something like that. I had been living life on the surface, emotionally, and I was feeling really vulnerable, so I was prepared to do anything at that point.” [Huffington Post]
