Kirsten Dunst’s experience with depression is far behind her, but the actress remains open about a period when she was “struggling” with the condition.

“People are embarrassed to talk about it,” Dunst, 29, tells Flare magazine. “I would never put anyone down [who] was in that kind of space.”

In fact, Dunst believes experiencing the mood disorder is perfectly normal.

“I think most human beings go through some sort of depression in their life,” she says. “And if they don’t, I think that’s weird.”
