Kirsten Dunst knows a thing or two about the Hollywood biz.
After beginning her career in Tinseltown at the age of three—and making the tough transition from child star to professional actress—the 32-year-old thesp has a unique and firsthand perspective on the often cutthroat entertainment world.
"There are great female roles out there [but] there's only so much out there for all of us," she explains in a new interview with Flaunt magazine. "Everyone has to audition when it comes to certain parts, and women have to the most. I still think it's a boys' club in a lot of ways. And to be a strong female in this industry, you have to be really in touch with your masculine side, too. You have to be a pretty strong lady to survive it. You have to be very confident in yourself."
While Dunst admits she "never leaves The Valley" and tries to avoid the spotlight as much as possible, the actress says it can be hard to separate her personal life from her professional work due to the nature of her job.
