Kirsten Dunst, actress awarded in Cannes

Kirsten Dunst is back alone at Cannes to attend the ceremony of awards this 64th Cannes Festival. The actress has received the Award for Best Actress for the film Melancholia, directed by Lars Von Trier. The Danish director, became persona non grata in Cannes, after his provocative statements and questionable "his sympathy for Hitler" was not there to support it.

Charlotte Gainsbourg, his partner in the film, either. In an emotion in any restraint, Kirsten Dunst then thanked the Festival for Melancholia kept competing, despite the behavior of its director. Then, the young actress praised the "great freedom" that Lars Von Trier gives his players and said "living a very special moment." This role was originally intended to Penélope Cruz.

But the latter refused, preferring to play alongside Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean 4. Good for Kirsten, who joins Charlotte Gainsbourg and Björk to the pantheon of Cannes award-winning actresses thanks to Lars Von Trier.
