The actress has opened up for the very first time on her stint in rehab for depression
Kirsten Dunst has spoken for the very first time on her 'awful' stint in rehab for depression.
The actress entered Utah's Cirque Lodge Centre back in February 2008, which has famously treated a host of stars from Eva Mendes to Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears.
Opening up to BlackBook magazine, the Marie Antoinette actress described, 'I know what it's like to lose yourself, to no longer know the difference between right or wrong.'
Confirming that she sought treatment for depression, not drug and alcohol abuse as rumoured, she continued, 'My friends and family were put in a position where they had to defend me, and it was an awful time.'
As for her well-documented party girl image, Dunst took the chance to set the record straight, stating: 'When you're a single girl in your twenties, yeah, you go out with your friends. And sometimes you drink too much. I don't know anybody else, with any type of job, who doesn't do that.'
Returning to the limelight, the starlet is now set to release new movie All Good Things, her first new flick since 2008's How to Lose Friends and Alienate People.
On her hiatus from Hollywood, she added: 'I used to assume that I'd (be acting) forever, and then there came a point in my life when I was like, 'Why am I doing this at all?''
