Kirsten Dunst has been on the big screen since she was a small child, but it looks like she may be ready for a kid of her own. The actress opened up to Red magazine for its September issue and said it could be time for her to start a family.
“I’m in baby mode because two of my really good friends are pregnant right now,” she told the magazine. “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! I think 33 is a good age to have your first baby.”
Dunst is currently dating Garrett Hedlund, her On the Road co-star, but said her life may be too crazy at the moment to really start thinking about babies of her own.
“You don’t know what’s going to happen in the next 10 years,” she said. “But I get asked that question a lot because I’m in my 30s 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!”

Dunst has changed a lot in the last 10 years and said she has become a much more laid-back person than when she was in her 20s. She explained, “I’m not as worried as I used to be. When I was younger, if I wasn’t working, I would get anxiety. I’d feel like I should be doing something. But now, I’m so good at chilling out. In my thirties I’ve become really good friends with relaxing.”
“I’m sure one day, if I have kids, the anxiety of life will come back again, because you’re worried about somebody else.”
You can see Dunst next in Midnight Special, expected in theaters in 2015. Her Red magazine interview is on newsstands Aug. 7.
