Kirsten Dunst is known for starring and appearing in a number of TV and films. Her career started young, at just three years old she began modeling and appearing in commercials. Then, at just six years old, she made her feature film debut with an uncredited role in Woody Allen’s 1989 “New York Stories”. She earned her first film credit the following year as Campbell McCoy in “The Bonfire of the Vanities”. In 1994, she landed her breakthrough role in “Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles” alongside Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise. Her career continued to take off, as she starred in several movies including “Little Women”, “Jumanji”, and “Small Soldiers”. Then, she made her mark in comedy in the original “Bring It On” which has grown into a film franchise. She landed one of her best known roles in “Spider-Man” as Mary Jane Watson, Peter Parker’s love interest. Most recently, Dunst has appeared in the critically acclaimed “Fargo” TV series, which earned her an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or a Movie, “Hidden Figures”, and Sofia Coppola’s “The Beguiled”.
It’s a known fact that Carl Sagan was a marijuana advocate and consumer, which Dunst referenced when discussing her consumption, “I drink moderately, I’ve tried drugs. I do like weed. I have a different outlook on marijuana than America does. My best friend Sasha’s dad was Carl Sagan, the astronomer. He was the biggest pot smoker in the world and he was a genius.” Though she doesn’t smoke nearly as much as he once did, “I’ve never been a major smoker, but I think America’s view on weed is ridiculous. I mean -- are you kidding me? If everyone smoked weed, the world would be a better place.I’m not talking about being stoned all day, though. I think if it’s not used properly, it can hamper your creativity and close you up inside.”
