Kirsten Dunst is in a third Sofia Coppola movie. This one is called The Beguiled and is a remake of an old Clint Eastwood movie about a Confederate soldier who gets hidden in a school of sexy chiicks. Dunst talked to Variety about it and revealed something Coppola told her.
She was always a good influence on me as a young woman…She said to me, ‘I love your teeth; don’t ever fix your teeth.’ I remember doing a ‘Spider-Man’ movie later and one of the producers was like, ‘I need to take you to the dentist!’ They even fixed my teeth on the poster. But I just knew I was never doing that. Sofia is the chicest, coolest girl, and she thinks my teeth are great.
WRONG! Kirsten is incredibly hot and a great actress but those little wizard teeth need to GO! They don’t make her unattractive, but they also don’t rise to the level of: “attractive quirk” like a gap does, or like, I dunno, Avril Lavigne has a cute smile. Anyway, Kirsten’s are just off putting. And Sofia Coppola can go jump in the lake because even though she told her to be skinnier (but keep her luscious boobs, I assume):
When Coppola suggested that Dunst lose some weight for her role in “Beguiled,” the actress pushed back. But she said her director was very understanding. “It’s so much harder when you’re 35 and hate working out,” Dunst says. She even used the shoot’s location—in rural Louisiana—as an excuse. “I’m eating fried chicken and McDonald’s before work. So I’m like, ‘We have no options! I’m sorry I can’t lose weight for this role.’”
So I am not sure who to root for, here. The artist who is like: “Listen I have a vision for my movie and you looking like you just got back from Freshman year of college is not part of it” or the actress who says (around a mouthful of Froot Loops): Bish, I am eating all of these things and I will ACT skinny!” and have it work.
Honestly the odds of me seeing this movie are like, zero so I don’t have a dog in the fight. But while yes, Kirsten should get those little wizard pebbles knocked into line, she still gets a lifetime pass because of the video below. So gd glorious and…improbable. Who cares about her dumb Sofia Coppola movie? This exists!
