Watch Kirsten Dunst's Short Film About How Anti-Social Selfies Are

Sep 25, 2014

In a new short video called "Aspirational," Kirsten Dunst takes a cynical look at the selfie trend that has altered fan-celebrity interactions and photography around the world.

Directed by Matthew Frost, the clip shows two girls who freak out when they see Kirsten Dunst on the sidewalk.

"Do you want to talk or anything?" Dunst asks as the girls vamp and take seflies with her. "I mean you can ask me a question, or are you curious about anything?"

Nope, they'd rather just pout and turn the camera on themselves, eschewing any actual conversation for the picture that will be sure to get them lots of new "random followers."

"I've already got like 15 likes!" One of them squeals as the clip ends. A picture may be worth 1,000 words, but here Dunst and Frost show what's lost if you do away with words altogether.
