Dunst finds ex­pec­ta­tions from ac­tors ridicu­lous

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Leisure -

Hol­ly­wood ac­tor Kirsten Dunst (right) feels the ex­pec­ta­tions that ac­tors have placed on them are “re­ally ridicu­lous”. The 33-year-old said it is “un­fair” to ex­pect an ac­tor will al­ways say good things and not get hurt, re­ported Peo­ple mag­a­zine.

“What peo­ple ex­pect of an ac­tor is to­tally ridicu­lous. It’s un­fair that artists are ex­pected to speak re­ally well 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,” Dunst said.

The ac­tor ad­mit­ted that she has learned to get through it by stay­ing true to her own self. “So all you can do is be your­self – just be who the hell you are,” she said. Dunst also opened up about her love life with ac­tor Gar­rett Hed­lund. “We’ve been to­gether for three-and-a-half years, so, yes, it’s go­ing re­ally well. We’re the same age. We have sim­i­lar back­grounds. He feels like fam­ily to me,” she said.
