Someone smart and famous once said that there are no second acts in American lives, but Kirsten Dunst must have skipped that class because she’s been turning the sexy up to infinity lately. When a 31-year old actress, who might as well be 41 for all we care, starts hitting the gym again on the weekends, that usually means that there’s a new purpose in her life. Is Kirsten being motivated by a new gentleman lover? Does she have her eye on a new, career-defining role? Or did someone strap a bomb vest to her while she was passed out face down in a gutter and tell her that it will detonate as soon as she stops trying again? I’m guessing it’s a little bit of A, B and hopefully C.

Kirsten Dunst simply enjoyed a fine meal at Crossroads in West Hollywood yesterday evening, but it’s remarkable how almost every photo of her getting behind the wheel of a car makes her look like she’s completely wasted and ready to run down a crowd of small children. It’s also amazing how at just 31 years old she looks like she’s settled into the ageless 40s part of her career, in which she always plays the recently divorced mom who tries to meet guys, but she can’t get any of them to stick around because she constantly looks like she’s about to vomit. Wait, sorry, I’m getting her career confused with her actual life again. Funny how life so often imitates art.

Remember a few years ago, around when they made the first ‘Spiderman’ movie, when Hollywood kept forcing Kirsten Dunst on us and trying to convince us she was sexy? What the fuck was that all about?

TREE OF LIFE – won the equivalent of Best Picture at the Cannes Fim Festival this weekend, but experts don’t think that will help much at the box office. But how can that be? Everyone loves the French. If those socialist pussies liked the movie, it should do great here in America. (la times)
KIRSTEN DUNST – was the winner of the Best Actress award at Cannes for her work in ‘Melancholia’. As you now know, Cannes selects winners by randomly choosing a name out of a hat. (ew)
GWYENETH PALTROW – was supposed to be all set to sign a record deal with Atlantic six weeks ago, but talks have stalled, perhaps because she wanted too much money upfront ($1M). Wait, Paltrow is being an unreasonable pain in the ass? Well this is the fist I’ve heard of anything like that. (ny post)
PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 4 – made $90M in its opening weekend, which means there will no doubt be a number 5. If it stars Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz again, they should call it ‘Voyage of the Mumblers’. (mojo)
MICHELLE HUNZIKER – is a Swiss model, and this weekend she was on the beach in Italy. That’s her in the purple bikini, in case you weren’t putting the pieces together yet. (splash news)
This morning at Cannes, Danish director Lars von Trier had a press conference (which you can watch here) for his movie ‘Melancholia’, starring Kirsten Dunst. Now, if you don’t know, von Trier is pretty goofy, and he’ll say goofy shit in interviews because that’s easier than giving a real answer.
Well this morning he was asked about the fact that his father wasn’t the man who raised him, but actually someone he never met, which was something his mother only told him on her deathbed when he was 33. This was also when he learned then that he wasn’t Jewish, but actually half Jewish and half German.
So in response to this question, Lars said…
“I really wanted to be a Jew and then I found out I was really a Nazi, because my family was German. Which also gave me some pleasure.
“What can I say? I understand Hitler. I think he did some wrong things, yes, absolutely. He’s not what you’d call a good guy, but I understand much about him and I sympathize with him a little bit.”
“I don’t mean I’m in favor of World War II and I’m not against Jews, in fact I’m very much in favor of them. All Jews. Well, Israel is a pain in the ass [pause] … How can I get out of this sentence?
OK, I’m a Nazi.”
And later when asked about independent films vs. studio films, he added…
“Yeah, we Nazis have a tendency to try to do things on a greater scale. Yeah, maybe you could persuade me [to do] The Final Solution—with journalists.”
Lars has joked that he was a Nazi before, and he didn’t mean it then either, and even though he has now apologized for what he said today, people are still freaking out. It’s not even a good joke. If you want to freak out over a joke, try this one: what’s the best part of taking a shower with a 12 year old girl? Get her hair wet and she looks 10. There. At least that’s a solid joke to complain about.
