Kirsten Dunst values traditional gender roles

Kirsten Dunst Kirsten Dunst thinks women need a ''knight in shining armor.'' The 31-year-old actress - who is in a relationship with actor Garrett Hedlund - believes traditional gender roles are still important and there is something ''valuable'' in ladies staying at home to ''nurture'' their families. She said: ''I feel like the feminine has been a little undervalued. We all have to get our own jobs and make our own money, but staying at home, nurturing, being the mother, cooking - it's a valuable thing my mom created. And sometimes, you need your knight in shining armor. I'm sorry. You need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman. That's why relationships work...'' Kirsten began her career when she was just three years old and she was always worried that her acting would make her a target for bullies. She admitted in an interview with Britain's Harper's Bazaar magazine: ''None of [my friends] were actors, really. I actually underplayed myself [at school] because I didn't want to be a target. The fact that I was an actress made me nervous. I never wanted to be called names or anything. I was afraid of that."
