Kirsten Dunst ‘Feeling Overwhelmed’ Filming Marie Antoinette’s ‘Nude Scene’

“It was never comfortable, never,” says Dunst of filming the love scenes.

Sixteen years later, Kirsten Dunst still uncomfortable “showing” on the screen.

The Oscar winner “Power of the Dog” reunites with “Marie Antoinette“Costar Jamie Dornan in Variety’s Actor on Actor Roundtable to review the 2006 film, as Dunst revealed she was “nervous” during production.

“And all of our stuff was like making, and I didn’t feel comfortable with that,” Dunst recalls to Dornan. “It’s never comfortable, ever.”

Dunst, who was 22 years old in production at the time, added, “I think the first time I even showed my breasts was with [director] Sofia [Coppola]. She never used grab, and I don’t even think you were there. I also feel overwhelmed.”

Dornan called Dunst’s candid reflection a surprise, saying, “You handled it well. I thought you were in control of everything.”

Of course, filming the romantic scenes for Dunst’s latest film, “The Power of the Dog,” proved to be a different experience since Dunst’s on-screen love affair was her real-life husband. , Jesse Plemons.

“First, we fell in love as creative friends,” Dunst previously told IndieWire work with Plemons. “We had a creative connection that brought us together. There is a lot of freedom whenever we do scenes together. It’s like a magic thing, a magical feeling.”

Dunst continued, “Jesse and I talked about directing together because we trusted each other. We are a good balance to each other. “

As she did in “Marie Antoinette,” Dunst teamed up with a female director, Jane Campion, for “The Power of the Dog.”

“Surprisingly, Jane is a very good actress,” Dunst said. “Whenever we rehearsed, she acted really well. And sometimes behind the camera, when I’m not on screen, I’ll watch her and she says her lines – almost like a little stage mom. It’s very sweet, though; she really liked it. I’m sure she wrote her script like that. She must.”

Looking back at her further a career spanning decadesDunst avidly worked on Lars von Trier’s “Melancholia”, calling it “the best moment” in production.

“It’s the most cozy set and so free. And I’m playing someone with depression,” Dunst joked. “And we were all in the area together. And I feel like in Europe – we filmed in Sweden – people are freer. I think I like that European mentality when it comes to making movies. It seems like anything happens.”
