Kirsten Dunst Identifies With Marie Antoinette
The real-life Marie Antoinette became Queen of France in her teens when she married Louis XVI, and Dunst understands what it's like to be recognized wherever she goes.
She says, "Obviously, I'm not comparing myself to Marie Antoinette, but I think any young person put in that position feels that way. I can understand that feeling of isolation and the difficulties of trying to find your identity with all those different pressures on you. Like when you go somewhere and people know who you are immediately, so they treat you differently. That can mess with your head.
"That said, I can't imagine being put in the position Marie Antoinette was in. I agree there may be some similarities, but we're dealing with a much higher position. I'm an actress and not a queen. And it's not like I'm greeted with people in my bedroom every morning."
