Why I like Kirsten Dunst

I noticed Kirsten Dunst since Interview with the Vampire; and then in Jumanji and Little Soldiers. I always thought that she’s a cute and talented teenage actress.

Spiderman was probably the major transition for her as she grown into adulthood as a beautiful woman. I don’t think she’s stunningly beautiful though; she looks good in some angles but not always.

Kirsten Dunst attracts me with her acting mostly. I love Mona Lisa Smile, I think it’s a great movie and Kirsten did very well in it. She got potential, I believe in times to come Kirsten will be one of the most influential Hollywood actresses.
