Film star Kirsten Dunst missed In-N-Out Burger when she was filming Woodshock.

(Cover) - EN Star Style - Actress Kirsten Dunst was miserable when she cut out food for a film role.

The blonde star can next be seen in the second series of TV show Fargo, and for this part she got to indulge in extra portions at meal times.

But straight after filming wrapped, Kirsten had to overhaul her diet in preparation for Woodshock, the directorial debut of Rodarte designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy.

"I wanted her to look like I've been eating a little meat and potatoes," Kirsten told People magazine of her role as Peggy Blomquist in Fargo.

"The next role I did was a film with my friends who do Rodarte, and I had to slim down a bit. I went on a programme and got food sent to me. It was a lot of shakes and vegetables. I was miserable. I love food."

The 33-year-old found herself craving greasy dishes while on the strict eating plan, and took drastic measures to get the most out of her food.

"(I missed) In-N-Out [Burger] and pasta. I remember one night I got brown rice pasta and I was licking the plate," she laughed.

Kirsten is more known to cinema audiences than TV fans, and transitioning into a ten-episode show proved tough for the star.

"My friend (Masters of Sex star) Lizzy Caplan warned me about the hours for TV. She was like, 'You are going to be exhausted. Get a B12 shot,'" she recalled.

While she may get tips with her diet and vitamin intake from her colleagues and friends, one area she doesn't need any help in is the wardrobe department.

"I don’t think I’ve ever gotten (style) advice," she previously told Gotham magazine.

"It’s more that I had really good influences. When I was 16, I was working with Sofia Coppola, who is one of the chicest women I’ve ever met.

"And my mom was always into fashion. She lived in Germany for ten years and had a lot of old Kenzo in her closet."
