Here’s Kirsten Dunst With Some Retro Views on Gender Roles

By

Lovable smirk Kirsten Dunst has come forth with some retro views of gender roles within relationships. From an interview with Harper's Bazaar

I feel like the feminine has been a little undervalued ... We all have to get our own jobs and make our own money, but staying at home, nurturing, being the mother, cooking — it’s a valuable thing my mum created. And sometimes, you need your knight in shining armor. I’m sorry. You need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman. That’s why relationships work …

Let that swirl in your brain for a moment — but before it settles, note that she also told Bazaar about her planned living arrangement with a close childhood friend:

We’re going to live together in a house, and who gives a shit what we eat, and who cares how many cats we have? Because you know, you have your girlfriends for life.

So she talks a good game about women needing knights in armor, but she's actually all about do-what-I-want independent living? Provided that it involves cat-lady stereotypes, anyway. Just a domestic enigma, courtesy of Dunst.
