Kirsten Dunst, 32, Is in "Baby Mode," Says 33 Is "Good Age" to Have First Child
Bring it on, baby! Kirsten Dunst is ready to settle down and start a family. The 32-year-old Midnight Special actress—dating Garrett Hedlund since 2012—delved into marriage and motherhood talk in the September issue of the UK's Red magazine.
"I'm in baby mode because two of my really good friends are pregnant right now. One of them is pretty chilled and the other's like, 'I can't wait to have a glass of wine!'" Dunst said. "I love it though. We've already picked her girl's name, it's done! I think 33 is a good age to have your first baby."
Dunst first began dating On the Road costar Hedlund, 29, when the hunky actor asked her out for a 3 a.m. canoe ride. "It was not a stable canoe," Hedlund recalled to Details magazine in February. "We fell out and had to swim back in mucky, sh-tty water, like golf-pond water."
The New Jersey native Is currently living in London with her longtime beau—and the pair have several Hollywood pal to lean on there, too. "It's perfect because Oscar [Isaac] is here filming the new Star Wars movie, and I'm here because my boyfriend is working in London all summer," Dunst tells Red mag. "I've told Oscar to get an apartment in our neighborhood so we can all hang out together. Garrett and Oscar have been friends for years, and also Max Minghella is a really good friend of mine and he's here, too. So me, Max, Garrett and Oscar are this funny little group that are spending summer together in London."
The former child actress has been working in the business for over 25 years, but admits her age has helped her calm down in recent years. "I'm not as worried as I used to be. When I was younger, if I wasn't working, I would get anxiety. I'd feel like I should be doing something. But now I'm so good at chilling out," the Interview with the Vampire actress said.
"In my thirties I've become really good friends with relaxing. I have a girlfriend who lives in London – one of the ones who's pregnant – and we sit in bed all day, watching movies and ordering food in. Not everyone can do that," she continued. "Some people are like, 'I have to get outside, I have to do something.' And I'm like, 'I'm actually fine not doing anything.' I lost that part of myself. I'm sure one day, if I have kids, the anxiety of life will come back again, because you're worried about somebody else."
In the meantime, however, Dunst seems content—except for when she's bombarded with "Where do you see yourself in 10 years?" type of questions.
"There could be wonderful things that happen, horrible things that happen. You don't know what's going to happen in the next 10 years," she told the mag. "But I get asked that question a lot because I'm in my thirties and it's like: time to get married and have babies, right? That's the vibe. Well, I already have a mother to ask those questions, so nobody else needs to!"
