Kirsten Dunst


Set the record straight on her visit to Cirque Lodge treatment center in Utah earlier this year, Dunst insisted she sought help for depression, not for drug or alcohol abuse.

Is coming clean about her visit to the Cirque Lodge Treatment Center in Utah earlier this year, Kirsten Dunst reveals that she didn't go to rehab for drugs or alcohol problems, but rather, depression. Is hard at work shooting her next movie, "All Good Things," on New York's Upper West Side, the movie beauty took time in between a lunch break to have an interview with E! Online columnist Marc Malkin with the intention to explain the real reason she went to the facility.

"I didn't go to Cirque Lodge for alcohol abuse or drug abuse," Dunst told Malkin. "I went there for depression."

Admitted to have consultation with a number of people - from doctors to friends and family - before heading in for treatment, Dunst revealed "It was a good six months before I decided to go away." She went on saying, "I was struggling, and I had the opportunity to go somewhere and take care of myself. I was fortunate to have the resources to do it. My friends and family thought it was a good idea, too. But I didn't know where to go. My doctor recommended Cirque Lodge."

On her decision to finally open up about her rehab treatment, Dunst explained "There's been a lot of misrepresentation about what is going on in my life, and it's been very painful for my friends and family. Everyone feels like they have to defend me. They hear the rumors, and it puts them in a defensive position. Now that I'm feeling stronger, I was prepared to say something. Depression is pretty serious and should not be gossiped about."

Dunst checked into the Cirque Lodge treatment center in Park City, Utah in early February. A source said at that time that "She's not doing well. People were pushing her to go in there but there was no intervention ... She has been partying hard for a while and I'm sure the Heath Ledger thing put people over the edge."
