Kirsten Dunst likes to have a night in shinning armour

KIRSTEN likes to have a "knight in shining armour" on standby and thinks feminine characteristics are "a little undervalued."

The 'Two Faces of January' actress, who previously dated Jake Gyllenhaal and is currently in a relationship with Garrett Hedlund, admits she enjoys letting the men in her life take control sometimes.

The 31-year-old star told the May issue of Harper's Bazaar magazine: "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 mum created. And sometimes, you need your knight in shining armour. I'm sorry. You need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman. That's why relationships work..."

The blonde beauty formed a close bond with her co-star Viggo Mortensen on the set of their upcoming film, but was initially "a little scared" to work with the 'Lord of the Rings' star.

She said: "He's surprisingly hilarious. The first time I met him, he was very reserved. It was in an elevator. I was like, 'Hi.' He was like, 'Oh, hi.' I learned later he was very shy. So I was nervous, even a little scared, to work with him. I thought, 'This is going to be intense.' Then I got the whole other side, which I don't think many people know. He should do comedy, I've told him that... I'm sure he wouldn't be happy with people knowing how fun he is."
