Kirsten Dunst has bounced back from her Cirque Lodge stint for depression and says, “Now I love me, so I’m OK.” The 26-year-old tells Harper's Bazaar that she blames child stardom for her becoming “dependent on other people’s approval.” But now she's got a new "trust yourself first" philosophy, a much healthier attitude, and a reignited passion for acting.
"Everyone goes through a hard time in their life," says Dunst. "They just don't have to do it in front of tons of people and with our media the way it is. I did, and I'm lucky that I had the resources and the money to take care of myself. I learned a lot." Dunst, who now has her own production company, plans to start a women's support group and hopes one day to settle down and have kids. She laughed off rumors, however, of a romance between her and Drew Barrymore's ex, Justin Long.
