During a recent interview, Dunst talked about her role, saying that she was making a “little witch’s brew of stuff.” She described her role as someone who has her own world.

“She probably should be on some meds. She’s a victim of the time and she’s trying to break boundaries, and I think she thinks she’s invincible,” she said.

On her nomination for lead actress for a limited series for the 68th Emmy Awards, Kirsten Dunst said it was an honor.

However, she wished people will just nominate and no one had to win as she thinks comparing ones craft from the other is the “thief of joy,” New York Times said.

Aside from the 68th Emmy Awards, Kirsten Dunst was also nominated for the Golden Globes as Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for “Fargo.”

Kirsten Dunst won the Saturn Award for “Melancholia” in 2012, for the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films, and was nominated in 2003 for the same award for “Spider-man.”

The actress started her Hollywood career when she was included in the cast of Woody Allen’s short film “Oedipus Wrecks.” She became popular after her famous portrayal as Mary Jane Watson for “Spider-Man.”

The 68th Emmy Awards will be on September 18.
