BRING IT ON
KIRSTEN DUNST (Torrance Shipman) has worked with some of Hollywood's hottest leading men including Tom Cruise, George Clooney, Robert De Niro, Dustin Hoffman, Brad Pitt and Robin Williams — not exactly a day in the life of a typical teenager.
In 1999 alone, Dunst starred in several high-profile projects, including New Line Cinema's Drop Dead Gorgeous with Ellen Barkin and Kirstie Alley; Columbia Pictures' Dick; and Showtime's Devil's Arithmetic, produced by Dustin Hoffman and Mimi Rogers. Earlier this year she was seen in The Virgin Suicides with James Woods and Kathleen Turner and later this year will be seen in Miramax's Getting Over Alison and The Crow: Salvation.
Dunst's other motion picture credits include starring roles in Little Women with Susan Sarandon and Winona Ryder; Jumanji with Robin Williams; Mother Night with Nick Nolte; the Golden Globe-nominated Barry Levinson film Wag The Dog, starring Dustin Hoffman and Robert De Niro; and Small Soldiers with the late Phil Hartman.
Her performance in Interview with the Vampire, earned
her a Golden Globe nomination and the Blockbuster Video
Award for Best Supporting Newcomer, an MTV award for Best
Breakthrough Artist and the Saturn Award for Best Young
Actress. Dunst was also named by The Hollywood Reporter
as Best Young Star for her portrayal of a teenage prostitute in NBC's hit series, ER.
She got her showbiz start at just three-years-old, when she began filming television commercials. With more than 70 commercials under her belt, she made the jump to the big screen in 1989 in Woody Allen's New York Stories. After moving to Los Angeles with her family in 1989, her film career really took off.
Dunst's career has not been limited to the big screen. In addition to her recurring role on ER, she starred in Showtime's The Outer Limits, the telefilm Ruby Ridge: An American Tragedy, the Wonderful World of Disney telefilm Tower of Terror and Lifetime Television's telefilm 15 and Pregnant, which was the second highest rated movie-of-the-week to air on the network.
She is also active in charity organizations such as the Pediatric AIDS Foundation and is always happy to attend functions that benefit women and children.
