Kirsten Dunst had the best response after she was asked to lose weight for her latest role

May 17, 2017

We know that actors are often asked to either bulk up or trim down for roles that they’re playing, and while these practises are somewhat divisive, it’s important for stars to know when to say no. That’s why we love what Kirsten Dunst said when she was asked to lose weight for her most recent role.

We know that actors are often asked to either bulk up or trim down for roles that they’re playing, and while these practises are somewhat divisive, it’s important for stars to know when to say no. That’s why we love what Kirsten Dunst said when she was asked to lose weight for her most recent role.

It was announced last year that acclaimed director Sofia Coppola was remaking the Civil War romance The Beguiled. The movie stars Elle Fanning, Kirsten Dunst, and Nicole Kidman, who, in the trailer, looks particularly creepy.

The movie, which is released on June 23rd, is about a sheltered women’s boarding school in 1800s Virginia during The Civil War. The women of the school come across an injured soldier, played by Colin Farrell. After they take Farrell’s character in to heal, and as he gets better, it becomes apparent that he has embarked on love affairs with some of the female boarders. Things then get pretty dark…

Speaking to Variety about the movie, longtime collaborators Sofia Coppola and Kirsten Dunst shared some titbits about the movie, including the fact that Coppola had asked Dunst to lose some weight for her role.

The pair discussed their relationship with each other, including their time working together on Marie Antoinette and The Virgin Suicides, with 46-year-old Coppola stating that she felt “big sisterly” about 35-year-old Dunst.

However, it seems that the pair clashed a little bit over Dunst’s role in The Beguiled, particularly when Coppola said that the actor should lose weight for the southern gothic movie.

“It’s so much harder when you’re 35 and hate working out,” Dunst said.
