Lars von Trier's Nazi Remarks Upset Kirsten Dunst (Cannes 2011)
The actress, who is in his "Melancholia" film, was seated next to the director when he called himself a Nazi.
Actress Kirsten Dunst, who is the star of his film, became visibly uncomfortable while the director spoke of being a Nazi sympathizer.
"Oh my God, this is terrible," she said at one point to co-star Charlotte Gainsbourg. And after the press conference ended, the actress remarked to von Trier, "Oh, oh Lars. That was intense."
And despite declaring, "Ok, I'm a Nazi," he added in his statement, "I am not anti-Semitic or racially prejudiced in any way, nor am I a Nazi."
