Kirsten Dunst Takes the E!Q in 42, Talks “Soul Mate” Elle Fanning and “Aggressive” Sex Scene in The Beguiled
Intense thrillers about psychological trickery and disturbing sexual games can conceivably make for a dreary atmosphere on the set. So, best one tackles such a project in the company of friends.
And that’s exactly what happened when Kirsten Dunst reunited with director Sofia Coppolafor her latest film, The Beguiled. Add Elle Fanning, Nicole Kidman and Colin Farrell (as the only male cast member) and you’ve got yourself a slumber party.
Kirsten and Elle, in particular, while they knew each other before became much closer while making the movie, which is set in the Civil War-era south.
“There’s people that you meet that are little soul mates in life, and she’s just like a sister to me,” Dunst said about her co-star while chatting to E! News about the film.
And in this film in particular, it helped to have pals to joke around with after certain days on set.
While Fanning previously told us that Farrell did his best to make an awkward kissing scene they had together as comfortable for her as possible, Dunst explained that she and Coppola decided on having no kiss during her sex scene with the actor. He plays a wounded Union soldier who’s taken in by the sheltered residents of an all-girls school in Virginia and it proves to be a little much (to say the very least) for everyone involved.
