In yet another milestone on the very strange road to adulthood my two sons are walking, they were witness to an exceptionally chipper Kirsten Dunst talking about her "boobies" as we settled in for a quick conversation last weekend about her new film "Melancholia."
This was a very busy morning for us. I was also doing interviews for "The Muppets" at the same hotel, so I had both of my sons with me. Toshi actually did one of those interviews, and you'll see that here next week sometime. They've both come to junkets with me before, and they know that they have to sit quietly when I'm doing the actual interview. As fans of Spider-Man, they are aware of Dunst from the covers of the movies they're not old enough to watch yet, and they knew that she used to be Spider-Man's girlfriend.
When we were just sitting down, I complimented Dunst on her work in "Melancholia," and she thanked me, then asked what the boys were doing with me. I explained about "The Muppets," and she got interested immediately, asking them how they liked the film and asking me if they got the movie right. She then asked the boys if they had seen "Melancholia" with me, and laughed when they both said no.
"Well, that's good. They haven't seen my boobies, then."
