Kirsten Dunst bashes Hollywood saying "Creative people are blossoming on television."
Kirsten Dunst used to be an A-list actress. Every movie she touched turned into Box Office magic. For instance, she starred in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man
trilogy, among other countless feature films. But, for the first time in her career in the last decade, she is returning to the small screen where she will star in season two of FX's Fargo.
In a recent interview
with the UK's Guardian
newspaper, Kirsten Dunst revealed the dark side to making movies. “People don’t go to the cinema unless it’s an event any more,” she says. “So the movie industry is in a weird place, for sure, and the creative people are blossoming on television.”

She believes that “there are just too many movies being made, I think. So many of them get lost. Too many cooks in the kitchen – the studio’s editing it, the producers are editing it, the director’s editing, too. But everyone has their hand in it, so whose movie is it at the end of the day?” Dunst thinks this leads to “homogenized” films, where creativity takes a backseat to the money being thrown at the screen.
“People don’t need all the money they’re using. That’s the other thing: when you have too much time, too much money, the creative starts to slip away,” she notes.

Kirsten Dunst believes that TV is not a step down for her acting career. In fact, Dunst finds the move to TV as more challenging. “Doing a television show is much, much harder work than film, because you’re doing 10 pages a day. You don’t get that many takes. And my character does not stop talking.”
“Fargo” season two premieres Monday, Oct. 12 on FX.
