Kirsten Dunst 'wouldn't be opposed' to children going into the 'family business' and becoming actors

Kirsten Dunst “wouldn’t be opposed” to her sons going into the "family business" and becoming actors.



Kirsten Dunst “wouldn’t be opposed” to her sons becoming actors.

The ‘Civil War’ actress has Ennis, six, and three-year-old James with husband Jesse Plemons and though she won’t actively encourage the boys to follow in their parents’ footsteps, it isn’t a choice she’d outright try and stop them making either.

She told Britain’s HELLO! magazine: “I wouldn’t be opposed because it’s like a family business.

“I don’t think it has to be a negative thing, but am I going to throw my kid into acting? No.”

Kirsten and Jesse, 36, met when they played a married couple in TV drama ‘Fargo’ in 2015, and they star together in new movie ‘Civil War’, with the 41-year-old actress admitting she “loved” working with her spouse again.

She said: “I loved it. We both love to work together.

“We’re soulmates at home and at work.”

Kirsten – who plays a journalist in ‘Civil War’ – uses a “dream space” to get into character for her work.

She explained: “It’s something I always do. It’s kind of a secret – but not any more, I guess.

“It’s something a lot of actors do as a way of getting in touch with the unconscious mind of the person you are playing.

“I find it really valuable because it anchors you with whoever you are playing.”
