Kirsten Dunst has opened up about her life as a child star

The 41-year-old actress has opened up about her experiences as a child star revealing some of her famous co-stars looked out for her on set and even lavished her with gifts - explaining Cruise decorated her dressing room when they worked together on 1994 movie 'Interview With The Vampire' when she was 11 years old.

During an appearance on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!', Kirsten said: "Tom Cruise put a Christmas tree in my dressing room as a child."

She went on to reveal Robin Williams bought her a computer when she was 13 during their time working together on 1995 fantasy film 'Jumanji'.

Kirsten added: "[It was a] big, coloured Mac computer. The new one. The new ones in the 90s. I was flipping out."

The 'Spider-Man' also revealed she ran a lemonade stand with actress Eva Amurri when they worked together as kids and they sold drinks to stars including Christian Bale and Winona Ryder.

She said: "Like, I remember doing a lemonade stand with Susan Sarandon's daughter on set. I had a very nice experience in the films that I did."

Kirsten also opened up about her co-stars in a separate interview with Variety, revealing Tom Cruise treated her "like a princess" and Robin Williams was "the most generous, kind, funny person".

She went on to talk about her grown-up roles, touching on the gender pay gap that existed between her and Tobey Maguire when they made 'Spide-Man' together.

She explained: "[His salary] might have been more [than the reported $17 million], actually ... [My salary] was different. A lot different. And I was in ‘Bring It On’ and had a track record ...

"When I was younger, in my 20s, I didn’t have the best guidance, I would say, and I did a couple of duds for money reasons, but nothing that I would have actually done otherwise.

"I get offered the most money on things I don’t want to do. As soon as I took the reins and started to develop my tastes and who I wanted to work with, everything shifted."
