KIRSTEN DUNST (Mary Jane Watson) has catapulted her way into the spotlight by capturing the most coveted roles around town. Dunst's stellar performances in Universal's comedy Bring it On, which opened number-one at the box office, and the critically acclaimed Virgin Suicides with James Woods and Kathleen Turner, made critics and fans alike stand up and take notice of her blossoming talent. Last year she won rave reviews for her role as a troubled girl in Disney's Crazy/Beautiful and will be starring as Marion Davies, mistress to William Randolph Hearst played by Edward Herrman, in Lions Gate Entertainment's The Cat's Meow (April 2002) directed by Peter Bogdanovich, a semi-biographical murder-mystery.

Nominated for a Golden Globe for the feature film Interview with the Vampire, Dunst's other motion picture credits include starring roles in Drop Dead Gorgeous with Ellen Barkin and Kirstie Alley; Dick with Michelle Williams; 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.

With a growing list of accolades befitting an actress 10 years her senior, Dunst's performance in Vampire earned her 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.

Dunst got her showbiz start at the tender age of three, when she began filming television commercials. With more than 100 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 that same year, Dunst's film career really took off.

Dunst's career has not been limited to the big screen. In addition to a critically acclaimed recurring role on the hit television drama ER, she starred in Showtime's The Outer Limits and Devil's Arithmetic, produced by Dustin Hoffman and Mimi Rogers; the telefilm Ruby Ridge: An American Tragedy; the Wonderful World of Disney's Tower of Terror; and Lifetime Television's, 15 and Pregnant.

Dunst, a Point Pleasant, NJ native, currently lives in Los Angeles.
