US Actress Kirsten Dunst Gets Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

LOS ANGELES – American actress Kirsten Dunst was honored on Thursday with her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame during a star-studded unveiling ceremony, where she made her first public appearance alongside her 15-month-old son.

Dunst, 37, was also accompanied by her fiance, actor Jesse Plemons, as the couple introduced their young child, Ennis, to the world.

“The choices I’ve made have always come from my intuition and my heart,” she told the audience in her thank-you speech. “And to have people respond to that is truly a gift.”

“To be celebrated here today and to be cemented in the history of our city makes me proud of the characters I’ve played and grateful to the incredible artists I’ve met along the way, all of whom have educated and guided me,” she added.

Dunst first caught the attention of critics at the age of 12 in her breakout role as Claudia, one of the main characters in “Interview with the Vampire” (1994), for which she received a Golden Globe nomination.

After a string of appearances in films such as “Little Women” (1994), “Jumanji” (1995), “The Virgin Suicides” (1999) and “Bring It On” (2000), she achieved world fame as Peter Parker’s love interest Mary Jane Watson in the record-shattering “Spider-Man” trilogy (2002-07) directed by Sam Raimi.

The success of Sony’s comic-book franchise led her to be cast in major roles for the movies “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” (2004), “Elizabethtown” (2005) and Sofia Coppola’s “Marie Antoinette” (2006), the latter of which saw her shine in the titular role of the ill-fated 18th-century French royal consort.

But her biggest recognition to date came in 2011, when she won the coveted Best Actress Award at the Cannes Film Festival for her towering portrayal of Justine, the protagonist of Lars Von Trier’s haunting “Melancholia.”

Since then, she has starred in the TV show “Fargo” – where her critically-acclaimed performance as Peggy Blumquist garnered her Golden Globe and Emmy nominations – and the movie “Hidden Figures” (2017), for which she won the Screen Actors Guild Award.

Born in Point Pleasant, New Jersey, Dunst holds dual American and German citizenship.
