Kirsten Dunst - Breakdown? Drugs? Just Being Kirsten?


Things must be pretty serious when your spokespeople have to respond to a Page Six story that says you were acting "erratic." So what if the NY Post put that in the gossip section? Lots of stars act erratic. So, when you come out and have to issue a statement to the effect that Kirsten is fine, then you as a reader know there must be something to the "erratic" after all.

Kirsten Dunst was in Sundance last week and was supposed to attend a number of screenings and just do the schmoozing and boozing that is so common there. While she was in town, she managed to attend on screening and that was for a very short amount of time. While she was at the screening she was behaving very oddly, left early and caused all of her friends to apologize on her behalf.

In my experience, and this is only my experience, I doubt it was a breakdown. I know everyone wants to call everything a breakdown now. My guess is that Kirsten was probably just drunk off her ass. Yes, it could have been drugs, but my guess is that she was simply drunk. Oh, I think Kirsten does a little extra something on the side, but in this case it was probably the altitude and being drunk played crazy with her mind. She is the kind of drunk that can get a little crazy, and not that it is a bad thing, but it is in front of a bunch of people you have come to schmooze, and who think it is odd to see someone smashed off their ass during the middle of the day. Hey, not defending Kirsten, but if you don't ski or snowboard, drinking is about the only thing to do in Park City.

Another former child star acting "erratic"?? How unusual. Like you would have any clue on how to be non-erratic if all you knew from an early age was Hollywood.

I wish parents would stop pimping their kids out to the entertainment biz. Let them be kids and decide when they are more mature if they want to dive into the entertainment snakepit.

as an avid skier, i can tell you that most people on the mountain are drunk (or on their way there)

jlb said...

It's the only thing to do in Northern BC as well.

captivagrl said...

moon - yeah, but no children in movies or tv shows or broadway or commercials...etc. we're all part of the problem. there's no such thing as limits. they're fighting just like the big people to be seen and hired.

In her defense I WILL say that the girl was a good friend of the late Heath Ledger and was probably extremely upset and out of it when his death was announced at Sundance.

But to be truthful, I have heard more drugs stories about Kiki than I care to hear. Not saying they're true or all true but...I knew someone that basically confirmed her drug antics were pretty much old news in Hollyweird. She dodges bullets because she's lowkey and cute Kirsten and everyone's busy chasing spotlight-seekers like Parasite and Blohan.

I agree that her people responding - Huvane - must think it's gotten bad.

Uber*nought said...

Btw, I'm sure some of the sillier fangirls out there will link it to the recent hogwash from People or one of those magazines who said Kirsten and Jake Gyllenhall's mother "disapproved" of Reese Witherspoon!

No doubt someone will concoct some romantic twaddle excuse for her alarming behavior! Oh dear....

This time I'm willing to bet it was bad news that threw her off.

Perez Hilton said...

I thought Kirsten was a junkie?

drunkie

Kristi said...

Off topic, sorry.

Eva Mendes in rehab? WTF??

Discuss...

GammaGirl said...

Re Eva Mendes: HUH?!!
This is a surprise. Maybe it was for something emotional rather than drugs/alcohol.

kevin said...

Kristi,

I saw that too. Maybe a lil reveal action here today. I do remember her being guessed about the Blind about the 2 actresses smoking a tons of joints at some shindig. Tho rehab for grass?

Kristi said...

I'm hoping EL will send some type of info (maybe a reveal or two?) our way concerning this. What I read said she was at Cirque in Utah, which is Lindsay's old haunt. My question is how did she fly under the radar? Am I the only one that didn't see this coming?

Kristi said...

Ya know, EL has been saying for a while that Eva is pregnant. (He was right about Gwen!) Is it possible that rehab is really just a ruse for her to go missing to finish out her pregnancy? Just a thought...

That's EXACTLY what i was just gonna say!

Kristi said...

Sorry to steal your thunder, Robert.

Please forgive...

littleoleme said...

I think K is simply looking for publicity and this is what gets it.

Desiree said...

OR could it be for her to "get rid" of the pregnancy??????

jax said...

El had said to me not long again he had no idea what happended..

we need to look for BI that might reveal a terminated preg?
my theory..Joaquin fucked her up with drugs and maybe a miscarriage or abortion.
sad.

Kristi said...

It seems like those pregnancy rumors have been floating around for quite a while for her to still be able to "get rid" of the pregnancy. But I'm lazy and I haven't done the research to see how long the rumors have indeed been afloat.

jax said...

ps that would explain the BI strut in Starbucks..all coke whores act that way lol.

GammaGirl said...

I really like the pregnancy theory, but EL seems to have really backed off the past few times she's been in Random Photos.

I guessing drugs at this point.

Carla said...

Eva in Rehab was a surprise. And what up with Justin Chambers popping in and out of the psych ward?

A bit off topic but in terms of flying under the rehab radar ... Selma Blair (according to Lainey). I guess it is possible or perhaps was ...

jlb said...

I can't remember - but wasn't there a blind about the actress who did so much coke in the bathroom at some function she fell into a puddle and ruined her designer lent dress? I could be getting two blinds mixed up - I do that..lol...but that could have been Eva...

Brit Brit said...

I just want to know what kinds of drugs they are on when they enter rehab.
Im glad Eva battled her demons, I really like her...

takeme2espana said...

brit brit- According to the '12 Step Program' it can be anything your "powerless to"...so it doesn't matter really, they're out-of-control to whatever their drug of choice is regardless of what it is. Alcohol, gambling, drugs, sex or food really...addiction is addiction.

michele said...

didn't i hear she was snorting coke with joaquin during their last movie?

lyz said...

jax - I was thinking about the Starbucks BI too!

And am I totally confused or were their rumors that Eva likes women?

sarah said...

Anyone notice Eva Mendes (the answer to an Enty BI a few months ago) is in rehab now? I think she's the one who ruined her dress?

sarah said...

Oh, her rep said specifically it was a substance abuse issue. Kudos to her for treating it.

Wonk said...

I don't get the anti-Kirsten sentiment on so many blogs. So what, she does a shitload of drugs when she parties with rock stars! She dresses cooler than every other generic fucktarded celebrity, all of whom look like they shop at Rave circa 1999 (if you don't have a Rave chain by you, don't ask). Any hipster in Hollywood is better than no hipster, and I'm calling her a hipster in only the best sense of the word, if there is a best sense of the word left (since it hasn't been hip to be a hipster in, oh, say, two years now).

jindi said...

yes she is a junkie.

This blind from Lainey is her:
Depressed and directionless and bitterly disappointed over recent professional failures and feeling stifled by a ruthless mentor, she is apparently on the verge – like a Britney verge. Except in her case, she’s lucky the pappies don’t have so much access.

Wild, wild partying and an endless cocktail of serious drugs supplied by an unsavoury group of new friends who are as degenerate as they come, relentlessly pushing their poisons into her body. And apparently she’s too messed up to stand up and walk out. Word is she’s either “out of it” half the time or so wild on tilt with insatiable chemical appetite that even her people can barely control her. She has been late or absent from a few recent engagements and while she was fortunate enough to have her team make new arrangements on the fly, her reputation is beginning to suffer…though that’s not the biggest problem.

The old friends fear the new friends are taking her down a dangerous path. Recent night out – by the end of the evening she was limp and lifeless and supposedly serviced by two different men and also at one point full on making out with another woman. She’s also been known to go missing, totally unreachable for hours at a time, and when she resurfaces, she’s a frightful mess.

Of course there are those trying to help her. And some days, she knows and she tries. But when the night comes and that crowd is calling, it’s trouble all over again.

Not Lindsay.

jax said...

oh that's totally Kiki..and we know she's now taking the whole band on these days..prob for drug connections.

Judi said...

Film festivals are for buying and selling films. Stars do promo, though it's debatable whether or not their appearances actually help. They add a bit of glitz but if they're actions are going to hurt a sale, they should totally bow out, go home. It's part of the job and should be considered from a professional standpoint. Those who aren't able to do this shouldn't def NOT be there.
Get thee to rehab, Kiki.

I just have to comment about Kirsten Dunst. I was never a huge fan but I've never disliked her either. My brother-in-law and my 14 year old niece were in Utah skiing during the weekend of Sundance (coincidentally and as my sister joked, unfortunately because those two are the least star-struck and don't know or care about celebrities or gossip that much!). Anyway, at the airport on Monday, they saw Kirsten Dunst. She was walking through talking on her phone (to someone named Bryce, I think they heard) and she went to smoke a cigarette. My niece worked up the nerve to go over and get her autograph, and she said Kirsten was really pretty and tiny, with big dimples, and was very nice, even saying, "I really like your coat" (it was a new coat my niece had bought while there). She did not look drugged out, agitated, drunk or what have you, and was very pleasant, according to my niece. So take that for what it is worth, just thought I'd share it.

I hate to hear about yet another H-town kid going this direction. If she was friends with Heath, maybe she'll wake up and clean up. Acting is an art and so may kids get lost in the superficial. Sad.
