How Good Is Your German, Kirsten? Fraulein Dunst Becomes German Citizen

She may be proud to be an American, but now Kirsten Dunst can also happily reveal her pride at being a German citizen, as well. The 29-year-old actress recently told the German tabloid B.Z. that she just received her German citizenship.

‘I’m now a real international lady,’ the Melancholia star says, adding jubilantly, ‘one who can film in Europe without a problem.’

The blonde bombshell also says that, to remain true to her roots, she’d also love to star in a German language film.

‘It would be the greatest joy for me to act in a German film,’ she told the magazine. 

However, she may have one small problem in that particular department, despite her new status as an international lady of leisure. She does speak the language but confesses that her skills are sub-par; she speaks ‘at a child’s level.’ She frequently visits her German father’s family in Hamburg but says she enjoys the country’s capital city even more.

‘I would prefer to buy an apartment in Berlin,’ the actress adds. ‘It’s such a young city, and right now so much is happening in Berlin.’ 

Until she makes the move, Dunst will have to content herself with starring and working for fellow Europeans. She stars in Danish director Lars von Trier’s latest film, Melancholia, alongside Swedish actor Alexander Skarsgard. The apocalyptic drama follows the lives of two sisters while Earth is about to collide with an approaching rogue planet.

Dunst received the Best Actress award at the 64th Cannes Film Festival in May for her performance. 

Next up for the starlet is the comedy Bachelorette opposite Isla Fisher, Lizzy Caplan and the recently separated James Marsden.
