With her new thriller "The Two Faces of January" nearing its anticipated premiere, Kirsten Dunst soaked up the spotlight by covering the May 2014 issue of Harper's Bazaar UK magazine.

The "On the Road" beauty looked absolutely enchanting in gorgeous floral-print ensembles for the publication's spread while opening up about everything from her co-star of the film Viggo Mortensen to other career aspirations.

Highlights from Miss Dunst's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to visit Harper's Bazaar UK!

On Viggo:
"He's surprisingly hilarious. The first time I met him, he was reserved. It was in an elevator. I was like, 'Hi.' He was like, 'Oh, hi.' I learned later he was very shy. So I was nervous, even a little scared, to work with him. I thought, 'This is going to be intense.' Then I got the whole other side, which I don't think many people know. He should do comedy, I've told him that... I'm sure he wouldn't be happy with people knowing how funny he is."

On her directing dreams:
"I would love [to direct]. I love getting immerse in things and being busy all the time. It's just hat I'm not going to write my own script. I don't think I can, I honestly don't. It would be easier to find a book to adapt. But, I'm not interested in directing right now. Maybe in three years. Who knows? Maybe I'll have children then. I probably will - one day- want to try it."

On her thoughts about feminism:
"I feel like the feminine has been a little undervalued. We all have to get our own jobs and make our own money, but staying at home, nurturing, being the mother, cooking - it's a valuable thing my mom created. And sometimes, you need your knight in shining armor. I'm sorry. You need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman. That's why relationships work..."
