Harry Gives Dunst Her Blessing

BLONDIE star DEBORAH HARRY has hit back at reports she's unhappy with the casting of KIRSTEN DUNST in a forthcoming biopic of the singer, admitting the two stars have met and chatted about the project. Dunst dealt with the initial internet criticism she received when she was first cast in the Michael Gondry film by stating Harry actually chose her for the role, and inviting unhappy Blondie fans to "take it up with her". But subsequent reports have suggested Harry was far from happy with the idea of Dunst playing her. Now the ageing punk icon has spoken out about the fuss, telling Spinner.com she has given the actress her personal blessing. She says, "She's (Dunst) a really sweet person. I've met with her a couple of times and hung out with her socially. She's just a sweetie. "She's probably capable of a lot of things she hasn't been asked to do yet, and doing something that's sort of left of centre would be great for her."
