(Here’s my slightly ropey translation of part of Kirstens interview from the October 2014 Brazilian edition of Glamour magazine).

We went to the land of cinema for a chat with one of the main stars of this generation and found she’s even more amazing than she looks!

Kirsten Dunst, at first glance, seems to be one of those cool movie stars who was born under the spotlight. But we went to Hollywood to uncover what’s behind the pretty face who has won so many hipsters directors.

And oh, you know: she is more like any girl in her 30s than we thought. She puts her career first but is dying to have children – and shakes with excitement about the pregnancy of her friends. Gives special attention to her hair and hates her belly. Complains about the difference that the film industry has in relation to men and women, had a heavy depression, lives close to her mother. Despite the fact that at 32 years old, with a 30 year career already, and the first kiss of her life was with Brad Pitt at age 11, she is almost like a friend of our class, go!

Here are some highlights of our delightful interview for Glamour October, which is on newsstands now!

Glamour Brazil: You have maintained a very private life. You go to the grocery store, to the beach?

Kirsten Dunst: Yes, of course. It also has to do with how you behave. The older I get, the less I want attention on me. Unless it’s for professional reasons. In my personal life I can go unnoticed quite easily.

Glamour Brazil: There was a time when you thought, “My God! Look what I’ve achived (Kirsten is 32 years old with a 30 year career) I’m so proud of myself!”?

Kirsten Dunst: Um, I was pretty proud of my work on “Melancholia” (2011). I felt I had really done something new as an actress. There are few directors who write parts like that. Pedro Almodóvar, Lars von Trier [of “Melancholia”] …. Well, I can not think of anyone else who writes interesting female characters as well.

Glamour Brazil: How did you get the invitation to do “Melancholia”? Do you have to test for these things?

Kirsten Dunst: I got a call saying that Lars von Trier wanted me to do his film. It was incredible! I was filming in Montreal, we just talked on skype and rolled. And let me tell you … I’ve had to fight for characters with other actors. This time it was like … Wow, that easy! [laughs!]

Glamour Brazil: Have you had to fight for a role?

Kirsten Dunst: I had to audition for the last film in which I worked, Midnight Special, Jeff Nichols, scheduled to debut in 2015.

Glamour Brazil: Wow, an actress like you still does tests?

Kirsten Dunst: Sometimes. Believe me, I do not like it. Not fun. I hate it. But (as it was) made ​​by Jeff. Not something I normally do.

Glamour Brazil: Tell me something about the modu operandi of Hollywood that still surprises you?

Kirsten Dunst: It’s much easier to be a man in the industry. Because women undergoes many criticisms. They (men) just wear suits and all is right. Girls need to pay attention to the clothes, the hair, the look … Does she still look young? Did she gain weight when she became pregnant? We are so criticized. Nowadays it’s the same for young actors. Have a whole patrol on top… Pity! When you think about the actors of the 80s … They were the devil and nobody cared. And the 70s then? It was way cooler.

Glamour Brazil: If you had to draw a timeline of your life, what would be the most memorable moments?

Kirsten Dunst: Definitely when I moved to Los Angeles [the actress grew up in New Jersey]. I was about 10 years. My first major role was at aged 11 Getting Claudia in “Interview With the Vampire” (1994) was a great time! It was a huge role to get at that age, that changed my life forever. Well … and it was my first kiss. My first kiss was with Brad Pitt!

Glamour Brazil: Kirsten, you had depression and even spent time at a clinic in 2008 What advice would you give someone who is going through the same situation?

Kirsten Dunst: I never talk about the reasons that led to depression, but I must say, seek help as soon as possible. Go straight to the focus of the problem and cut it in the bud.

Glamour Brazil: Do you want children?

Kirsten Dunst: Very much. Two of my best friends are pregnant. Incidentally, all around me is pregnant! But I’m very traditional, so I want to get married before having babies.

Glamour Brazil: And you want a wedding with garland type (the actress is dating actor Garrett Hedlund)?

Kirsten Dunst: I do not want a big party, I prefer a little. Because of who will pay for the party … I will [laughs!]

Glamour Brazil: What is your idea of ​​paradise?

Kirsten Dunst: Being on holiday! Let’s see … In Jamaica, Bali, Brazil … are places I’ve always wanted to visit.

Glamour Brazil: Come to Brazil!

Kirsten Dunst: I need to know the island Walter [Walter Salles, who directed her in “On the Road” (2011) and has an island in Angra dos Reis] says that his family has an island paradise. He invited me to go!

(The magazine also features a lovely photoshoot of Kirsten by the Riker Brothers. I’ll get the magazine scanned as soon as I can get hold of it but in the meantime I’ve added part of the photoshoot to the gallery).

John / September 15th, 2014

Aside from the fact that his work speaks to me personally with his semi-candid approach, natural light and use of (dare I say) “real people” as subject for his photographs, the retrospective work of London born Rob Nelson is stunning.

Walking through the red doors of the McIntosh Gallery on the Western Campus on a grey day hugging myself and my camera bag to try and not get swept up by the wind, the rain, or the fact that today felt like the first real Fall day, I am stunned with a beautiful large print of little Kirsten Dunst. Nestled on a plush cream coloured couch on the (I’m projecting here, but) pent house level of a swank Bay Street condo in Toronto.

Dunst, whose sky blue eyes are one of her most attractive and known features (aside from her one off-kilter tooth) are closed, her knees brought up in a comforting, exhausted fetal position and a little terrier sleeps by her feet.

This is the work of Rob Nelson. He has that special quality that few have to let you feel it’s safe to let that guard down. Just let it go. Your ego, your fear of double chin or crow’s feet around your eyes. If it’s you, that’s what he wants to see.

This is where we met for a quick interview which turned into a little bit of catch-up and a lot of discussion about his work, his past, his life now and how he got here.

I asked him abut his approach to the trade of photography. It’s looked at less and less of a skilled trade and more of a hobby/unattainable job nowadays, but Rob shows that it’s all how you look at it. It’s your perspective. It applies to a lot more than just his work, but for now, that’s where I’ll keep the focus.

“My father [Ron Nelson], his story; is he loved to build things with his hands and he had a love for model airplanes. He entered a competition for building model airplanes at the YMCA and he won first place, which was a camera, and from that, he decided to build a dark room, and then from that, he started selling his work and then he got his pilot’s license and then started doing aerial photography, then he got the studio and then the camera shop and then from that, started an audio visual department. He encouraged me to think outside of the box. He built a lot of his own equipment and when digital came along, I looked at that as a new way of seeing.

“He was a commercial, industrial and aerial photographer, so he did incredible shots of buildings and group photographs. From him, I learned technique and at a very young age.”

As we walked around the room, I started to notice more similarities with his work and a tangible closeness that consisted though each of the portraits. They are all so damn personal.

“As of late I’m not photographing models, I’m photographing friends. The woman there on the couch (a photo of a universally gorgeous woman in natural light) I’ve known her for like, fifteen years, the woman above, twenty years… I like my photographs to be stripped down, natural light. As little gear in between myself and my subject as possible, and very intimate. ”

I’ll say. Some of the work feels so intimate that I almost blush looking at them. A portrait of a young brunette reclined in a pose of utter comfort and easiness is shot from the perspective of her close friend or lover. It’s two frames, and the bottom of the two is simply her naked face and her green eyes staring directly into you. She has nothing to hide.

That’s typical of Rob, or a theme of his work. It feels like there is so much more than what you see happening just beyond the parameters of the frame, much more of a story to be told.

“I love film. I love the feeling of the horizontal, 16×9, you’ll notice that most of my photos are horizontal and for that exact reason, so that it looks like a film still.”

Because I didn’t have a copy of the legend for each of his pieces, Rob graciously went through all 34 pieces with me telling me who it was a portrait of, often peppering in a tid-bit of information or piece of history and I got to know a little more about why he does what he does.

“You know what I love? Is when you go to a party and someone pulls out a camera, you see this over here( he points to a photo of a woman sitting on the floor with her arm elegantly perched on the couch, drink in hand, looking effortlessly striking), this is a shot for Elm Street and everybody’s having fun and looking […genuine…]” but it’s totally right. The essence of the photo makes you wish you were at that party there with those fabulous people.

So how does one condense more than 40 years of work to fit in one room? Curated by James Patten, it’s an apt representation of the work of a man delving into the world around him and more importantly, the people that populate it.

At the end of our conversation, he reluctantly let me take a few snap shots of him in the Gallery Room. He tells me as I pull out the camera “you know, this is the reason I got a camera, so that I didn’t have to be on this side of the it.”

He pulls his trade mark stealth little camera out as I’m packing up my gear to leave. He asks if he can take a quick photo of me. I say “sure, I mean, it’s rare I see a picture I like, but go ahead. Glasses on or off?” “Off.” I oblige (my glasses are filthy anyway, the arms held on by pieces of paper clip and sit lop sided on my face anyway). I now feel the pressure to look correct, especially after all the discussion that we just had but I fail miserably and smile uncomfortably, with my face most likely turning red. Damn. I should have been ready for it, but as quick as it his point and shoot was out it’s back in his pocket and we’re done. My moment in the sun was brief, but now I can say a professional photographer shot me, and it didn’t hurt a bit.

If you are in London between September 12th and November 1st check out “Rob Nelson: Photographs 1977-2014” at the McIntosh Gallery on the Western Campus.

I’ve added the gorgeous photo of Kirsten by Rob Nelson mentioned in the article to the gallery. Long-term fans might remember we added a very similar photo (that Kirsten very kindly sent to us) to the gallery back in 2008. A very belated credit & thank you to Rob Nelson for use of that photo.
