Following the premiere of her latest television series On Becoming a God in Central Florida earlier this week, V64 cover girl Kirsten Dunst was honored with a commemorative star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, celebrating over 30 years of her unforgettable on-screen moments and incredible transformational skills. Among triumph and jubilation, the revered actress looked striking in a patterned dress alongside her fiancé Jesse Plemons and their son, Ennis, as emotional speeches, graceful appreciations, and joyful tears were shared. Director and producer Sophia Coppola, a long-time friend and pivotal mentor of Dunst, announced her pride in the starlet’s recognition and praised her balletic intelligence at the ceremony. Overcome with emotion, Kirsten stood teary-eyed as Plemons took to the stage and recounted the day they first met. Finishing out the slew of heartfelt messages, he concluded, “I love you, Keeks. And I couldn’t be any prouder of you than I am right now.” 

At only 12 years old, Dunst landed her first big-screen role as Claudia in Interview with the Vampire, which secured her a Golden Globe nomination and her famous first kiss with the legendary Brad Pitt. From there, the rising movie star expanded her Hollywood horizons into a multitude of adored films, exploring new characters and developing her technical skills as she went. She proved her acting abilities sovereign as she properly portrayed a peppy cheerleader for Bring It On, embodied a severely depressed woman in the highly-acclaimed Melancholia, and personified a sexually repressed school teacher in The Beguiled among many other contrasting roles. With a legion of esteemed films under her belt, Dunst is assuredly commendable of the Hollywood Walk of Fame honor.

This crisp engraving on Hollywood Boulevard comes fresh after an interview with Larry Flick on Sirius XM where Dunst discussed her lack of acknowledgment in Hollywood. “Remember when Marie Antoinette— y’all panned it — and now you all love it. Remember Drop Dead Gorgeous? Panned. Now, you all love it,” she explained to Flick. “It’s, like, interesting for me. I feel a lot of things I do people like later … I’ve never been recognized in my industry. I just feel like, what did I do? I'm so chill. Maybe I don't play the game enough.” Clearly the tides have turned with this latest accolade, and the seasoned Hollywood star is finally gaining the recognition she rightfully deserves.
