As you might imagine, on the Internet, this made some heads explode.
Jezebel was among those first to react. "Kirsten Dunst is not paid to write gender theory so it shouldn't surprise anyone that she's kind of dumb about it, just as I wouldn't be surprised if Gloria Steinem sucked at convincingly and heartbreakingly playing a mysterious oversexed teen who kills herself in a Sofia Coppola movie," Erin Gloria Ryan writes. She's absolutely correct: Not everyone is a scholar on gender theory. There's no real reason to expect groundbreaking sociopolitical thought from most actors (or people, for that matter). Still, whenever someone's so unabashed in their conservative-leaning belief vocalizes it to a largely liberal and feminist-positive industry, people are going to snipe. Sure, it's Dunst's right to speak her mind — as it is ours to object or agree as we see fit. How do you feel about Dunst's remarks? (Daily News)
