Kirsten Dunst On Her Simon Pegg Team Up 'Alienate People'

April 20, 2007

How to Lose Friends & Alienate PeopleThere's a new project that hardly anyone knows of with two of today's great actors: Spider-Man 3 star Kirsten Dunst and Hot Fuzz star Simon Pegg. The movie is titled How to Lose Friends & Alienate People and is a comedy directed by Robert B. Weide, who's most well known for creating the television show "Curb Your Enthusiasm". The film is based off of a book of memoirs by Toby Young of the same name. Earlier today Kirsten Dunst commented on the film while promoting Spider-Man 3 and its current production state - and it sounds better than ever!

The film is about a British writer who struggles to fit in at a high-profile magazine (a faux Vanity Fair) in New York. Kirsten describes the film and her role in it.

"I play Allison, she works at the faux Vanity Fair, I mean it's not called Vanity Fair in the script. It's basically, he plays a writer from London who's very controversial who comes to the Vanity Fair and it's all about the goings-on in that whole celebrity gossip world. And how he's kind of rejected as a writer…"

Kirsten also commented on her reaction when reading the script:

"It's such a well written script, I was just like 'yes', even before I finished it. I've always done comedies though, I want to do something fun next."

And the best part of all, she said "It makes fun of so many people in such a good way". I can't wait to see a damn good comedy with Simon Pegg and Kirsten Dunst that makes fun of celebrity gossip and celebrities! This just sounds awesome. Besides that, each of their two current movies are worth seeing - Spider-Man 3 and Hot Fuzz.

    That' sound great. I love Curb, Pegg and Dunst, and the subject matter and wonderful reveresal of the title all makes it sound like it will be very, very good. (Although I do believe it's Vanity Fair*.)
