Kirsten Dunst doesn’t want daughter to act

Published: Friday, April 13, 2007, 20:04 [IST]

Kirsten Dunst has vowed to never let her future daughter
become an actress. The star - who has been acting since she was three and shot
to fame when she starred in Interview with the Vampire aged just 11 -
admits the pressure of being a child star contributed to the depression she
suffered last year. Kirsten, who doesn't currently have any children, said: "I'd
never put any daughter of mine through acting because, while I loved acting and
was happy working as a child, looking back, my happiness always came from
pleasing other people - always. It came from satisfying the director or my
mother or my acting coach, not from pleasing myself."

The Spider-Man

star admits she felt a "lot of anger" towards her mother for pushing her
into acting. She said: "My mother told me that when I was born she just knew
that I was destined to be an actress. It's not a natural way to grow up, and
acting was never a dream for me. It was the only thing I knew - it was just my
life. For a while there was a time when I had a lot of anger towards my mother
because of what she did to me. Now I understand what kind of woman she is - she
always had the best intentions."
