I’ve been working since I was 3. It’s time to have babies: Kirsten Dunst

Kirsten Dunst has a case of baby fever. In Marie Claire UK’s upcoming July issue, the Woodshock star says her biological clock has been ticking, and it's only been getting louder over time. “I'm at a stage in my life where I'm like, I've been working since I was 3. It's time to have babies and chill,” E! Online quoted Dunst as saying. “You know what I mean?”

How Hollywood raids bookshelves in search of good stories

The actor who is engaged to fellow actor Jesse Plemons, wasn't always so keen on having kids. In fact, it was a recent decision. "I wasn't one of those 'I need a baby!' people until my goddaughter was born. I love her so much! That love is something you can't experience unless you have a kid.”

Dunst, who next appears in Sofia Coppola's The Beguiled with Elle Fanning, Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman, doesn't have any projects in the pipeline, so the timing couldn't be better. But perhaps the actor is merely being more selective about which movies she agrees to star in—after all, times are changing. "You can get jobs based on your Instagram following these days. That's insane. But that's why I have it now. As a man, you could get away with not having it. As a woman in this industry, I think you gotta do it now," Dunst stated. "It's just part of the game.”

Kirsten Dunst speaks about All Good Things

Speaking about her style, Dunst said, "I definitely have a gross dress with holes in it that I would never wear in LA. But in Austin, no one cares. If I wasn't an actor, I'd dress like garbage every day. All my clothes would be rags."
