Marie Antoinette May Not Teach You Anything

Kirsten Dunst and the beautiful, barely looking almost 8 months pregnant, Sofia Coppola premiered their movie at the New York Film Festival. The duo spoke at a press conference to discuss the supposed boos at the Cannes Film Festival, the music selection, and how we didn't learn about Marie in school. However, apparently this film won't teach us much either. Here's more:

AP: Kirsten, what had you known about Marie?

Dunst: I'd learned what I learned in school. I never really had tried to take the time to look at a historical figure in a personal way before. When you're in school, you don't. You just memorize dates and wars.

Coppola: They don't teach us very much about foreign history in school.

Dunst: They don't. It was a small paragraph in my book, and then it was more about Napoleon and what happened after. Just like, OK, that was the queen that was beheaded.

AP: Did you have any reservations about playing an 18th century noblewoman?

Dunst: I knew the way Sofia would do it that I could do it. I knew it wasn't going to be a really self-serious film where we're going to teach people a lesson about French history, that it would be an introspective story of what she envisioned this woman's life to be like. So of course, it's a daunting thought, but I felt safe with Sofia. The reason I wanted to do it is Sofia's take on the whole thing made it very exciting.

She just learned what was in the script I doubt the other actors know about her either

ha ha "tapered leg pants"! That was funny Veronica81, but I won't speak too soon because I may actually become a "skinny jean" victim. hmmmmmm. . . but I doubt it. I'm too short, and insecure about my thighs.

Now which one of them is pregnangt? Because I swear it looks like it's Kirsten. Hello? Doesn't she know that horizontal stripes are a no-no? And I'm sorry, but I don't care how big of a trend they become, I would never be caught dead in tapered leg pants. Maybe because I grew up in the 80s and already learned this lesson?

"They don't teach you much about foreign history at school..." Nice cop-out. Ever heard of getting your lazy, self-righteous ass to a library and reading up for yourself?

I always thought the opposite, that Leo was too homely for Claire. She's with Billy Crudup, who left Mary Louise Parker for her.

This sounds REALLY bad but I have always thought Claire Danes was very homely and she could never get someone as hot as Leo...so that is why I didn't like her in it. she ran off with a man whose girlfriend was 8 mos pregnant, so that is why I don't like her now.

Yea I liked it also. Claire didn't bother me tho. They didn't have a lot of chemistry tho, now that I think of it.
LaurenG22 LaurenG22 9 years
jenna- me neither... she ruined that for me...
LaurenG22 LaurenG22 9 years
except that was in modern times as well... this will be interesting i think-- sofia is smart and artistic and I am not expecting a historical lesson or anything, just a story of a young woman on a journey of life...

I LOVED that movie and soundtrack. Except I thought Claire Danes was all wrong for the Juliet role. I don't know why, except I cannot stand her now.

Prob modern in the same way the soundtrack was for the Romeo and Juliet remake
LaurenG22 LaurenG22 9 years
i dont think its a "pile of crap"... they were in FRANCE, of course the french were gonna boo an alterna-rock american version of the French woman, Marie Antoinette!!!
JennaV JennaV 9 years
kidcrazy! HEY! Yes, apparently, it is a "modern" soundtrack.
kidcrazy2 kidcrazy2 9 years
This film was booed at Cannes so that pretty much tells you what a pile of crap it is. Was it on here that I read that the soundtrack was like, Marie Antoinette meets Fast Times at Ridgemont High? What's up with that?
LaurenG22 LaurenG22 9 years
sofia is interesting looking... not FUGLY by any stretch... but kirsten needs to hire a stylist... you have the money, you cheap hooker!

Sofia Coppola is extremely talented but beautiful? I don't think so. I think the film got booed at Cannes.
