She was cast as Judith “Judy” Shepherd, the older sister of Peter Shepherd, played by Bradley Michael Pierce.

“I won’t say I didn’t have a crush on Kirsten. She’s only about six months older than me, but she had done more film projects than I had. It was nice to have a friend my age to give me guidance. She gave me tips on how to keep your energy up so you’re ready to film the next scene without being so rambunctious that it’s unprofessional,” Bradley Michael Pierce told The New York Times in November 2017 about his co-star.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight in 2017, Dunst stated that she would jump at the chance to get involved in the Jumanji reboot if she was asked.

“That’d be fun,” she smiled when asked if she’d return as a grown-up Judy Shepherd. “I would definitely do something in that if they wanted me to.”

Jumanji was released on December 15, 1995, when Dunst was 13-years-old. Born on April 30, 1982, in Point Pleasant, NJ, she turned 14 on April 30, 1996.

Famous for her crooked teeth, in October 2015 Kirsten Dunst hit the red carpet for the Season 2 premiere of FX’s “Fargo” at the Arclight Theatre in Los Angeles, California.
