Dunst told the New York Times about the challenges of looking after a newborn.

She said: “I’m so tired, I haven’t slept through the night in four months. I’ve developed an eye twitch, too. Yeah, I’m in a really special place.”

Dunst, also known for film roles including The Virgin Suicides, Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy and The Beguiled, revealed she was pregnant in March.

She posed on the cover of W Magazine in a photoshoot directed by her friend and collaborator Sofia Coppola.
