Kirsten Dunst talked about abortion during an interview with Collider in 2010:
"I thought about the abortion scene [in All Good Things] a lot. It was something that his character decided. She was not going to have this baby. In my own way, I had to figure out how I could make it so that it could be my choice and I was not just succumbing under his rule.
I just thought, 'I wouldn't want to bring a baby into this marriage, since it is really not going well. I am young enough. I can have another child with someone else, somewhere down the line. Maybe he is not ready, right now in his life. A lot of things have happened.' I tried not to cry and play it like, 'Oh, poor me,' because that would be really boring.
I didn't want people to feel like, 'Just leave and have your baby.' She also didn't have the means, and it was a different time. She didn't come from money and she couldn't be a single mother so easily, like we have the option to now."
