The last time we talked about Kirsten Dunst, it was becaise she basically said that women are better off cooking and cleaning—living at home, being housewives. Which, OK, is totally fine if that's what a woman wants; it should not be because it's her "rightful place" or any outdated, sexist bullshit like that.
Today, she has some brand new views to share with us: Sofia Coppola, a frequent collaborator with her, interviewed Dunst for W Magazine. The two talked about their relationship on when shooting films:
I feel like you and I are so on the same page about how to approach things. Have you ever worked with a director you didn’t agree with? And if so, what did you do?
I have, and it takes all the fun out of what you do. You just get through it instead of having a meaningful experience.
Then things get weird: Coppola asks about handsy, creepy, pervy—whatever you want to call it—directors, and Dunst has a...well, pretty awful answer to give.
What if a director pounces on you while working? Has that ever happened?
No [laughs]. I don’t give off that vibe. I think that you court that stuff, and to me it’s crossing a boundary that would hinder the trust in your working relationship.
So, Dunst believes that every actresses who is sexually harassed by pervy directors in Hollywood was...asking for it? There is not enough space on the Internet is explain how messed up that comment is. This is victim-blaming at its core, people—aren't we past this gross way of thought, yet?
