Kirsten Dunst describes acting in braces on her 90s-set series, “On Becoming a God in Central Florida.” 

“They’re like a retainer. You just clip them on and off,” Dunst told Variety’s Marc Malkin on the red carpet at the show’s premiere. “Every time on set, I’d take them off and there’d be a line of saliva coming off. They’re kind of nauseating to wear, so I was just grossing everyone out.”

Dunst plays Krystal Gill, a water park employee making minimum wage who gets lured into a billion-dollar pyramid scheme. However, she soon rises the ranks of the multi-level marketing ploy to support her family. Taking place in the ’90s, the star gets to sport some big hair, long nails and lots and lots of denim. 

“It was so awesome and gross and perfect. The worse it got, the better it was,” Dunst described. “I had a lot of good denim on denim. I had an acid-denim skirt, denim shirt and jacket that all matched. That whole look was a lot.”

Dunst also touched on the upcoming remakes of “Interview with the Vampire” and “Little Women,” both 1994 films in which she had breakout roles as a child. Since she played a 10-year-old girl immortalized as a vampire, she didn’t think she’d be able to make an appearance in any future installment of the horror movie.

“I’m too old, right? I was a child, so I don’t know how that’d work,” she said. “It’d be kind of sad, me in a curly wig. No one wants to see that.”
