Kirsten Dunst finds acting for television "much harder" than acting for films and has branded the movie industry "a weird place"
Kirsten Dunst thinks television is "much harder" than film.
The 'Fargo' star believes the film industry is becoming a "weird place" with creative people having more success on the small screen.
She shared: "Doing a television show is much, much harder work than film, because you're doing 10 pages a day. You don't get that many takes. And my character does not stop talking.
"People don't go to the cinema unless it's an event any more. So the movie industry is in a weird place, for sure, and the creative people are blossoming on television."
The 33-year-old actress also believes there are too many films about, causing some to get "lost" in the traps of Hollywood.
She added to The Observer magazine: "There are just too many movies being made, I think. So many of them get lost. Too many cooks in the kitchen - the studio's editing it, the producers are editing it, the director's editing, too. But everyone has their hand in it, so whose movie is it at the end of the day?
"People don't need all the money they're using. That's the other thing: when you have too much time, too much money, the creative starts to slip away. It just does."
