Kirsten Dunst, who is the mother of two - five-year-old Ennis and two-year-old James -- has been in Hollywood for more than three decades. However, she recently said that being a mother has made her a better actress.

What did Kirsten Dunst say?

The actress told US TV show 'Extra': "My child turned one on this film, so I really felt like I was really in it still. They make me better at what I do, for sure. I think once you become a mom, you’re just more fearless in life."

The Jumanji star, who plays a renowned war photojournalist in the new drama film Civil War, was then asked if she thinks her world perspective changed after working on her latest project and said that she just naturally has "anxieties" about the world in its current state, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
