New Jersey (SS): Kirsten Dunst says she makes less money than a reality star. The actress admits her mother wants her to make more money, but she doesn’t listen to her advice as she’s only concerned with making art. I am too old to be swayed in any way now, she said. She sees that I do these indie films and she’s like, I don’t understand why these people reality TV stars make so much money and you don’t. I am like, Mom, I am an artist, I want a career path that will last. Relax we are OK. I actually underplayed myself.
