In a new interview in USA Today, Melancholia star Kirsten Dunst says that she loves home decor and beauty products and wouldn't rule out doing her own line. ""I see all these people making so much money off the weirdest things! I just feel like [branded products are] a smart way to make money for doing independent films. I am someone who really cares about the products I put out. Even if it was inexpensive, I'd want it to be really well done. I feel like Target does a really good job with that. I do love nice-smelling things. We'll see what happens. Later, when pressed more about the possibility of a product line, she added, "I feel like that's when you're chilling at home and you've had two kids and you want to take care of them. You start making all these lines and things."
Kirsten, I am sure that some celebrities with their own fragrances (Katy Perry, Rihanna, Fergie) and no kids would be happy to tell you that the money's pretty good with or without babysitter fees to take into account.
