Dunst's Big Fear
Kirsten reveals what scares her.
Actress Kirsten Dunst has some interesting views about sexual harassment.

In the latest issue of W Magazine, during an interview with Dunst that was conducted by Sofia Coppola, Dunst said that she’s never encountered a director who tried to make advances on her.

Coppola asked Dunst if a director had ever “pounced” on her while working together, Dunst laughed and said “no.”

“I don’t give off that vibe,” she explained, adding, “I think that you court that stuff, and to me it’s crossing a boundary that would hinder the trust in your working relationship.”

Eek! Really Kirsten?

Talking about gender roles, Dunst says:

“I feel like the feminine has been a little undervalued… We all have to get our own jobs and make our own money, but staying at home, nurturing, being the mother, cooking – it’s a valuable thing my mom created. And sometimes, you need your knight in shining armor. I’m sorry. You need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman. That’s why relationships work.”

To each her own. That’s fine if she’s talking about her personal views, but when talking about sexual harassment in the workplace, that is a whole other story.
