"It's not something I feel like totally comfortable talking about but yeah, it's a very personal thing ... I dealt with it," Contactmusic quoted her as saying.

"Yeah. That and it's also interesting as an actress you're supposed to be sensitive and vulnerable and have this side to you. But then your supposed to be super sociable and 'on' and like nice to everybody. That's a weird dichotomy. It's a lot to ask of a person. It's not a normal thing," she added.

Dunst believes that it was the right move to get treated and take a break from Hollywood, as she was able to return to her career reinvigorated.

"I definitely took a little bit of a break. And also, when you're in your 20s you need figure things out and take a step back. I had been acting so long, all my life. I think I just needed a little bit of some perspective. It was good for me and it re-inspired what I do, too," she added.
