No, Kirsten Dunst isn’t pregnant – but she’s certainly got it on her brain. 

“I’m in baby mode because two of my really good friends are pregnant right now,” she tells Red magazine.

At 32, she feels like her time is approaching: “I think 33 is a good age to have your first baby.” 

Kirsten, who has been acting since she was 3 and kissed Brad Pitt age 12 in Interview with the Vampire, has been with her On the Road costar Garrett Hedlund for 2 years.

But she doesn’t have any specific plans for marriage or children just yet – despite all the people who prod her about it.

“You don’t know what’s going to happen in the next 10 years. But I get asked that question a lot because I’m in my thirties and it’s like: time to get married and have babies, right? That’s the vibe. Well, I already have a mother to ask those questions, so nobody else needs to!” 

Of her two pregnant friends, “One of them is pretty chilled and the other’s like, ‘I can’t wait to have a glass of wine!’

I love it though. We’ve already picked her girl’s name, it’s done!” (She’s a handy friend to have, then! Plus, she could teach you the cheerleading routines from Bring it On.)

In 2008 she checked into rehab to be treated for depression and anxiety. These days, she’s happy to just “sit in bed all day, watching movies and ordering food in.”

“Some people are like, ‘I have to get outside, I have to do something.’ And I’m like, ‘I’m actually fine not doing anything.’ I lost that part of myself.

I’m sure one day, if I have kids, the anxiety of life will come back again, because you’re worried about somebody else.” 

Were you the last one in your group of friends to fall pregnant? Did everyone ask you ‘When will you have a baby?’ We’d love to hear!

  • I was in the middle, so no pressure at all. I did when I was ready, not everybody else.


  • yeah it is an amazing experience and she is at the stage where she would want kids

    • it is a woman’s decision to have kids when she is ready and capable


  • We were sort of in the middle of our group. I guess that makes things easier


  • All I ever wanted was to be a wife and a mother … after quite a few miscarriages I have the wonderful nephews, and niece’s so I make the best of times together…. some friends suggest I should look into foster care I,m really worried about getting to attached, but it is something i’m thinking about….


  • My friends & I all sort of had kids within years of each other.


  • most people mean well, others are just plain annoying putting pressure on A couple who don’t have children. There are many reasons why a couple haven’ t had a baby.


  • she is at a good age and I thnk most women get this


  • she picked a good age to become pregnant, she is mature and knows she is ready


  • When people asked me “Oh, no children yet?”, I’d make a joke of it by saying “Nope, haven’t found any in the cabbage patch lately”, or “Oh we’ll get them when they’re giving away 2 for 1 with a block of chocolate”. But even with my sense of humour, I did eventually get quite tired of people asking. I wasn’t the first in my group, nor was I the last to fall pregnant. But I’m probably the only one in the group to tell a nosy interrogator “Mind your own business”, when I was nagged and nagged about when we were going to start a family.


  • Awww good luck to her :-)


  • It always makes you clucky when friends or relatives are having babies, even when I see little ones in the supermarket.


  • Yeah, I was the last, but I didn’t get asked often. My friends knew I wanted them, and didn’t pry into why they hadn’t arrived.


  • I was the first to fall pregnant out of my friends


  • Yes, I was the last to have a child in my circle of friends, was always being asked when I was going to start a family.


  • Who cares when you have children its your decision! But I will say having a child in my early 30’s was a lot easier than having my last at 40. just saying.
