"I feel like most people around 27, the s--- hits the fan," Dunst confessed. Whatever is working in your brain, you can't live like that anymore mentally. I feel like I was angry." 

At the time, Dunst was in a relationship with Razorlight front man Johnny Borrell and admitted she spent her nights frequenting the club scene. She said her unconscious effort to mask her feelings of anger eventually caught up to her, landing her in a Utah rehab center, where she was forced to confront them.

"It's hard to talk about such a personal thing, but it is important to share too. All I'll say is that medication is a great thing and can really help you come out of something," she said. "I was afraid to take something and so I sat in it for too long. I would recommend getting help when you need it," she encouraged.

Working on her mental health was a transformative experience, she said. "You become a different person; you grow up."

The Power of the Dog star has two boys with actor Jessie Plemons, 3-year-old Ennis and 5-month-old James.

"I remember feeling really free after having my [first] son. I think as a performer, you put yourself out there more [after having a child]. You put yourself on the line because you have nothing to lose," Dunst revealed. "It doesn't really matter. And to show everything of yourself is a brave thing and a beautiful thing."

The Power of the Dog, which has garnered the acting veteran Oscar buzz, is set to premiere on Netflix on Dec. 1.

Firstly as we begin, I'd like to say that camDown is a highly advanced, specialized webcam blocker and disabler with the best in class protection from variety of on-line threats.
