Kirsten Dunst Net Worth $25 Million
Kirsten Dunsts began her on-screen career at an extremely young age due to her mother‘s efforts. Kirsten was only three when she appeared in her first TV commercials. Three years later, Kirsten made her first film appearance in “Oedipus Wrecks“, a short film by Woody Allen. Later, she appeared in the comedy drama “The Bonfire of the Vanities” in 1990, and an episode of the science fiction series “Star Trek: The Next Generation” in 1993. However, it was Kristen‘s portrayal of the little vampire girl Claudia in the 1994 romantic horror film “Interview with the Vampire” that completely changed her life, and turned her into a real movie star at the tender age of eleven years. For this role, she won a MTV movie award for the “Best Breakthrough Performance”, Saturn Award for the “Best Performance by a Young Actor” and was nominated for her first Golden Globe Award as “Best Supporting Actress – Motion Picture” among other awards and nominations. This early success has built a solid foundation for Kirsten’s net worth, but has been psychologically difficult for such a young child, as the actress has admitted later.
In the next few years, Kirsten appeared in many successful movies, such as the fantasy film “Jumanji” in 1995, science fiction film “Small Soldiers” and teen comedy “Get Over It” in 1999. While she has appeared in many movies, some of them were much more significant to her net worth than the others. In 2002 she became a part of the “Spider-Man” movie franchise which has had a key role in her acting career. She has been chosen to play the role of Mary Jane Watson – the main character’s love interest in all three parts of the movie: “Spider-Man” in 2002, “Spider-Man 2” in 2004 and “Spider-Man 3” in 2007.
Kirsten has won several Teen Choice, MTV Movie and other awards for her amazing performance in the trilogy. Another exceptionally successful movie in Kirsten’s career was the Danish art film “Melancholia” in 2011, for which she received positive reviews from the film critics as well as winning many prestigious film awards for her portrayal of character Justine.
In her personal life, Kirsten Dunst has been dating actor Garett Hedlund since 2012. As with other famous Hollywood actors, Kirsten has suffered from depression to the point where she has sought help, and was admitted to the Utah treatment center “Cirque Lodge” in 2008.
