Kristen Dunst slams Hollywood, calls it ‘a weird place’

LOS ANGELES: Actress Kristen Dunst says she has become a little disappointed with Hollywood and feels television is the new hub of creative people.


The 33-year-old “Spider-Man” trilogy star, who is all set to star in season 2 of “Fargo”, finds the film industry a “weird place”.

“People don’t go to the cinema unless it’s an event any more. So the movie industry is in a weird place, for sure, and the creative people are blossoming on television,” Dunst said.

The actress said too many films is the reason she shifted to television.

“There are just too many movies being made, I think. So many of them get lost. Too many cooks in the kitchen- the studio’s editing it, the producers are editing it, the director’s editing, too.

But everyone has their hand in it, so whose movie is it at the end of the day?” The “Interview with the Vampire” actress finds TV more satisfactory as it involves a lot of hard work.

“Doing a television show is much, much harder work than film, because you’re doing 10 pages a day. You don’t get that many takes. And my character does not stop talking,” she said.
