If you pick up the latest issue of People magazine, there’s a good chance you’ll find a picture of what looks like a homeless Kirsten Dunst, head-to-toe in ripped t-shirts and worn down shoes. Regardless of her poor sense of fashion, Kirsten is one of the hottest foxes ruling Young Hollywood today and has repeatedly demonstrated her talent and charisma in projects ranging from teen comedies to stylish independents to towering summer blockbusters. Kirsten began her road to stardom at a very young age, signing with the Elite model agency at the age of four. While modeling around the world, Kirsten began to get work in commercials and TV series (including a recurring role on “Star Trek: The Next Generation") before finally landing a role in the Tom Hanks flop “The Bonfire of the Vanities.” Kirsten’s big break came when she starred as the young vampire in Anne Rice’s “Interview with the Vampire,” jumpstarting a career and earning her a Golden Globe nomination and an MTV award for Best Breakthrough Performance.
Since her debut in 1993, Kirsten has become one of the industry’s staple go-to girls, stealing roles from some of the best young actresses including Christina Ricci and Kate Hudson. As Kirsten grew up, she began to appear in a number of respectable teen fluff films like “Bring It On,” “Get Over It” and “Crazy/Beautiful,” but more recently she has begun to take on complex roles in independent features like “The Cat’s Meow” and "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind." Her latest accomplishments include her role as Mary-Jane Watson in the Sam Raimi "Spider-Man" franchise and the creation of her own production company called Wooden Spoon Productions. Aside from being noticed around Hollywood as one of the more talented actresses around the business, she has also been fingered out as one of the most desirable, listed twice as one of People’s 50 Most Beautiful People as well as one of Teen People’s 25 Hottest Stars Under 25. While it’s easy to bark out all of Kirsten’s high points without mentioning any of the bad, even her worse films are always turned around with one time-stopping smile, and that’s why the guys at Bullz-Eye agree she more than qualifies as a Celebrity Babe; she’s at the front of the newest breed already taking Hollywood by storm.

Kirsten Dunst on the Screen
At only 21 years of age, Kirsten Dunst has managed to pull of a certain variation in her career that some seasoned veterans have yet to accomplish. First appearing as a child actor in the Robin William's comedy "Jumanji" and as a blood-sucking nightwalker in "Interview with a Vampire," Kirsten grew up quick. After a short stint on the NBC drama "ER," Kirsten made a name for herself in teen comedies like the surprise cheerleader hit "Bring it On." Since then, while Kirsten has appeared in blockbuster like "Spider-Man," her best performances have usually shown in the more independent and quirky features like Sofia Coppola's debut film "The Virgin Suicides" and the more recent Charlie Kaufman masterpiece, "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind." Kirsten has yet to establish herself as an A-list actress, but with an undying smile and a knack for taking chances, she will undoubtedly have a bright future filling the shoes of the industry's best.
"Spider-Man 3" is now in theaters and crushing box office records as expected. So what's next for Kirsten? Well, she's definitely up for another go as Mary Jane - that is, as along as both Tobey and Sam Raimi return - but the short-term only holds one project for now: "Sweet Relief," the biopic of Irqai relief worker Marla Ruzicka.
"Everybody smokes! Models, actresses, everyone! Don't they realize that it's gross? I understand it's an addiction, but it still pains me to see my friends do it."
On the making of "Spiderman":
"They put me in this big harness. It was really unflattering to the figure."
