Kirsten Dunst is an American actress who began her career as a child actor. She was born on April 30, 1982, in Point Pleasant, New Jersey, USA. Her mother, Inez, is of Swedish descent, and her father, Klaus Hermann Dunst, is German.

Dunst achieved fame at a young age for her role as the child vampire Claudia in the 1994 film "Interview with the Vampire" alongside Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise, for which she received a Golden Globe nomination. This role was critical to launching her career and displayed her talent for acting at a young age.

Following her early success, she continued acting through her teen years, appearing in films like "Little Women" (1994), "Jumanji" (1995), and "The Virgin Suicides" (1999), directed by Sofia Coppola. Dunst transitioned into adult roles seamlessly, maintaining her popularity with audiences and critics.

One of her most well-known roles came with the character of Mary Jane Watson in Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" trilogy (2002, 2004, 2007). These films were commercial blockbusters and helped solidify her position in Hollywood. Dunst's performance was pivotal to the romantic subplot of the series and contributed significantly to the franchise's success.

Aside from her work in major blockbuster films, Dunst has frequently taken on roles in independent films and projects that are considered more artistically risky. She collaborated again with Sofia Coppola in "Marie Antoinette" (2006), where she played the titular character, and received praise for her performance.

Over the years, her resume has expanded to include a diversity of film genres and notable performances in movies such as "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" (2004), "Melancholia" (2011) — for which she won the Best Actress Award at the Cannes Film Festival — and "The Beguiled" (2017).

In addition to her film work, Dunst has ventured into television, earning critical acclaim for her role in the second season of the FX series "Fargo" (2015). For this performance, she received a Golden Globe nomination.

Dunst has been recognized for her work with numerous nominations and awards over the course of her career. Far from being just a leading lady on-screen, she has also expressed interest in working behind the camera. She made her directorial debut with the short film "Bastard" (2010) and has since spoken about directing more projects.

Outside of acting, Kirsten Dunst has made a name for herself in the fashion world, often appearing in fashion magazines and known for her distinctive style on the red carpet. She has also been the face of several campaigns for luxury fashion brands.
