Kirsten Dunst isn't worried about making money.
The 'Melancholia' star has an extensive portfolio of film roles under her belt and claims that, although her mother often used to help her to decide which parts would be best for her, she no longer feels the need to take her advice.
She said: "I'm too old to be swayed in any way now.
