She's a favorite when it comes to cover girl selections, and Kirsten Dunst landed the front page of Flare magazine's October 2011 issue.

Donning a bright red and pink Giambattista Valli frock, the 29-year-old big screen star chatted with the Canadian publication about her battle with depression in 2008 as well as her new movie "Melancholia" - which is set for a September 30 release in the UK while hitting US theaters on November 11.

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

On her battle with depression:
“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.”

On the stigma associated with depression:
“People are embarrassed to talk about it - I would never put anyone down that was in that kind of space.”

On her performance in the movie "Melancholia":
“It was really hard for me to watch because I don’t recognize 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.”
