Kris­ten calls Hol­ly­wood ‘a weird place’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Leisure -

Amer­i­can ac­tor Kris­ten Dunst (above) says she has be­come a lit­tle dis­ap­pointed with Hol­ly­wood and feels tele­vi­sion is the new hub of cre­ative peo­ple. The 33-year-old Spi­der-Man star, who is all set to star in sea­son 2 of Amer­i­can se­ries Fargo, finds the in­dus­try weird. “Peo­ple don’t go to the cin­ema any­more un­less it’s an event. So the movie in­dus­try is in a weird place, and the cre­ative peo­ple are blos­som­ing on tele­vi­sion,” Dunst said. The ac­tor said too many films is the rea­son she shifted to tele­vi­sion. “There are just too many films be­ing made. The stu­dio is edit­ing, the pro­duc­ers are edit­ing, the di­rec­tor is edit­ing, too. But ev­ery­one has their hand in it, so whose movie is it at the end of the day?” asks Dunst, who finds TV more sat­is­fac­tory. “Do­ing a tele­vi­sion show is much harder work than film, be­cause you’re do­ing 10 pages a day. You don’t get that many takes. And my char­ac­ter does not stop talk­ing,” she said.
