Kirsten Dunst (born Kirsten Caroline Dunst 30.04.82) was born in Point Pleasant, New Jersey. For such a young actress she has made a deep impression on the world of Hollywood and her career reads more like that of a much more mature actress.

Although her first major role was in the 1994 was in the film adaptation of Anne Rice's Interview with the Vampire with major A-list actors like Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt. kirsten also starred in the in jumanji in 1995.

Then came Siderman! Arguably the biggest movies of all time and yond Miss Dunst landed the role of Spidermans love interest Mary Jane Watson. The first Spiderman was released in 2002 to much critical acclaim.

John McBurney is a Union soldier who is found injured in the grounds of a Mississippi Confederate all-girls boarding school in 1863. The girls and their headmistress Miss Farnsworth take him inside to care for him, locking him in a room to keep him separated from the girls, but during his stay he manages to charm the likes of teacher Edwina Dabney and one of the elder students, Alicia, not to mention Martha herself. John's presence in the house disrupts the once quaint atmosphere, and it soon becomes thick with deceit and jealousy. As each of the girls turn on one another one by one, they begin to realise who the real enemy is. And John finds himself in far more danger than he ever was in the ongoing Civil War.

The couple, who've been dating since May 2016, are reportedly set to be married.
News of the couple’s engagement was first broken by the New York Daily News’ Page Six on Tuesday (January 10th), with Dunst’s mother apparently confirmed later via her private Facebook page.
The two played husband and wife on the second season of FX’s ‘Fargo’ back in 2015, and began dating for real the following summer, shortly after Dunst split from her long-term boyfriend Garrett Hedlund.

Even from a young age, Katherine Johnson's family and teachers knew she was made for great things. Even as a child, her mind was something special. She was gifted with an ability to work out complicated math sums far superior to anything a young child ought to be able to do.
There were a number of factors standing between Katherine and her education - most spanning from the fact that she was black and it was the 1920's. The country of Virginia where she and her family lived would not supply an education over a eighth grade to anyone of Afro-American ancestry and few family worked impossibly hard, splitting their time over two counties, to make sure their little girl could become the success they knew she would be. Their hard work paid off and Katherine became a math teacher before being poached by a new and exciting agency looking to recruit some of the most talented mathematicians of the time.
Katherine, along with two fellow mathematicians, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson, were introduced into a whole new use for maths. The ladies who worked in the department were human computers and they unravelled huge flight calculations and soon Katherine was once again headed up the ladder to work on a space mission - a mission to send a man to the moon and safely return back to earth.

Dunst has co-written the script with Nellie Kim, and Fanning will portray Esther Greenwood, in the project which is expected to start filming in 2017.
Deadline reported on Thursday (July 21st) that 34 year old Dunst has written the script with the help of Nellie Kim. Dakota Fanning is named as a co-producer, along with Lizzie Friedman, Karen Lauder, Greg Little and Brittany Kahan, and filming is expected to get under way in early 2017.
Gifted director Jeff Nichols takes on another genre in his fourth film with actor Michael Shannon, after Shotgun Stories, Take Shelter and Mud. This one's an involving character-based sci-fi adventure made in the style of classic films like E.T. or Close Encounters. As the characters are thrown into an extraordinary situation, the story gradually reveals its fantastical secrets without resorting to the usual overblown blockbuster formula, which makes the movie remarkably resonant and genuinely thrilling.
Shannon plays Roy, a man who is on the run across Texas with his 8-year-old son Alton (Jaeden Lieberher) and his childhood friend Lucas (Joel Edgerton), who's now a state trooper. And the FBI is on their trail, investigating the religious cult they escaped from. Led by the defiant Calvin (Sam Shepard), the cult seems to have been centred around the unusual ability Alton has to gather information from government satellites. Which is why the FBI is so intent on tracking him down. Working with the FBI, NSA Agent Sevier (Adam Driver) is fascinated by Alton's abilities, and he begins to worry what might happen if the boy is captured. Meanwhile, Roy and Lucas have reunited with Alton's mother Sarah (Kirsten Dunst) and are continuing their journey across the American South. And time is clearly of the essence, since Alton is growing seriously ill.
Writer-director Nichols skilfully keeps the audience gripped by the central mystery, dropping in hints and revelations along the way that slowly build up to the final big picture. This forces the viewer into the same perspective as the characters, who don't have a clue what's going on but are gripped by the possibilities of what they're witnessing. This also makes it impossible to predict where the story might go next as it cycles through action, humour, emotion and exhilarating drama. Through all of this, the actors all offer beautiful textures in their characters, underplaying even the most intense scenes to make them feel strikingly realistic.

The ‘Fargo 2’ star covers the latest issue of Town and Country magazine.
Actress Kirsten Dunst has opened up to Town and Country magazine about spending time in rehab back in 2008. The actress, who stars in the second season of FX’s ‘Fargo’, said she checked herself in to a facility for depression when she was 27, blaming the unrealistic expectations that are placed on actors.
Fargo season 2 will be a prequel, and the Coen brothers are returning as producers.

Martin Freeman starred in the first season of FX's 'Fargo'
According to E! News, Dunst will play Peggy Blomquist, a beautician with dreams of the big city. Peggy is trying to figure out what she really wants from life. Plemons - who played the chillingly emotionless Todd on Breaking Bad - will play Dunst's husband Ed, a butcher's assistant who is supportive of her quest despite not quite understanding it.

'The Two Faces of January' is another successful adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's work.
American-born but Europe-based, the novelist Patricia Highsmith wrote 22 novels and eight collections of short stories, most of which deal with characters who are badly compromised morally. So it's natural that her work has been widely adapted by filmmakers looking for more complex characters and storylines.
It's also hardly surprising that novelist Patricia Highsmith has long been associated with master filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock, who gave her career a huge boost when he made a movie based on her first novel Strangers on a Train a year after it was first published in 1950. Her most famous character, the anti-hero Tom Ripley, appears in five novels and has been immortalised several times on film: Alain Delon in the classic Plein Soleil (1960), Dennis Hopper in The American Friend (1977), Matt Damon in The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999), John Malkovich in Ripley's Game (2002), Barry Pepper in Ripley Under Ground (2005).
This sun-drenched thriller is much more than a pretty picture: it's also a slow-burning story about moral compromises that worms its way under the skin. Based on a Patricia Highsmith novel, there are clear parallels to The Talented Mr. Ripley as three characters circle around each other and all kinds of Hitchcockian subtext gurgles around them.
Set in 1962, the plot opens with Chester and Colette (Viggo Mortensen and Kirsten Dunst) on a romantic holiday in Athens, where they meet slightly too-helpful American tour guide Rydal (Oscar Isaac). He's already wooing one rich young tourist (Daisy Bevan) and soon locks eyes on Colette. But it's Chester he becomes entangled with, when a private eye (David Warshofsky) turns up trying to reclaim cash Chester stole from a client. So Rydal helps Chester and Colette flee to Crete and, while they wait for a plan to develop, Chester becomes convinced that Rydal and Colette are having an affair.
Writer-director Hossein Amini has already proven himself as a skilled writer of innuendo-filled dialogue (see Drive or The Wings of the Dove), and here he shows a remarkable eye for setting. It helps to have ace cinematographer Marcel Zyskind and composer Alberto Iglesias adding their considerable skills to the mix. The film looks utterly gorgeous, providing plenty of glaring sunlight and murky shadows in which Mortensen, Dunst and Isaac can bring their characters to vivid life. Every scene bursts with suggestiveness, as the inter-relationships between these three people shift unnervingly.
