Dunst 'weirded out' by Melancholia

Kirsten Dunst has revealed that she finds it tough to watch herself in Melancholia.

The American actress stars in Lars von Trier's epic melodrama, which is about the end of the world, alongside Charlotte Gainsbourg, John Hurt and Alexander Skarsgard.

"It was really hard for me to watch because I don't recognise myself in parts of that film. It weirds me out a little bit - like my voice change, this look in my eye. It scared me a little bit," she told Flare magazine.

The 29-year-old, who sought treatment for depression in 2008, says her experience has taught her to erase the stigma associated with the mood disorder.

"People are embarrassed to talk about it. I would never put anyone down that was in that kind of space," she said.

"I think that most human beings go through some sort of depression in their life. And if they don't, I think that's weird."
