Marie Antoinette, Dunst, Getting No Love
LAist has an unflinching and terrible crush on Ms. Kirsten Dunst. Once Christina Aguilera got married, Keeersten jumped to the top of our list of most eligible bachelorettes, and she's definitely the only reason we sat through those Spider-Man movies.
Therefore when we saw the variety of negative comments about her new movie Marie Antoinette, which opens today, we were disappointed. Especially since it's the vision of everyone's favorite Coppola, Sofia, who first made us fall for Kirsten through The Virgin Suicides.
This weekend we will probably see Marie Antoinette, and it's nice to know that we should keep our expectations low.
