Having met the director when she was just 16, Dunst recalled how Copppla was “always a good influence on me as a young woman,” and made a memorable compliment about her teeth.
“She said to me, ‘I love your teeth; don’t ever fix your teeth,’” Dunst shared. “I remember doing a Spider-Man movie later, and one of the producers was like, ‘I need to take you to the dentist!’ They even fixed my teeth on the poster. But I just knew I was never doing that. Sofia is the chicest, coolest girl, and she thinks my teeth are great. She gave me confidence in little things that I wouldn’t necessarily have had.”
