After welcoming her son Ennis last year, Kirsten Dunst went through her wardrobe and offloaded most of her clothes. 

"I want to look nice for how I look now," the 37-year-old says in a new profile published in Net-A-Porter. And while Dunst admits there was a time when she would have said: "'S***! I don't fit into anything anymore'" post-baby she simply bought clothes that fit.

"I don't care," she says. "I sold all this stuff on The RealReal. And there was some really good stuff in there!"

Dunst, who shares 15-month-old Ennis with fiance Jesse Plemons, says one of the benefits of growing up as a celebrity is that she has a "healthy perspective of being an actress".

"I haven't worked out once since I had my baby," she notes. "I'm not one of those people who says 'Ohhh I have to get my abs back.'"

The mum-of-one, who was recently awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, also spoke of the challenges of working motherhood, sharing that she started filming her new series On Becoming a God in Central Florida, just months after Ennis was born.

"I cried to my mother-in-law in the second week," she says. "It was the hardest job I've ever taken, right after five months off with a baby. "I was so tired".

Dunst continues: "I would bring home a tuna sandwich from the craft services table. I would take a bath, and then eat my sandwich in bed while I read the pages and learned lines for the next day."

But while both she and Fargo star Plemons are former child stars, the pair, who Dunst describes as being "about as married as you can get" have no plans to let their son follow in their famous footsteps - at least not yet.

"If you have a kid who's very cute, I get why people do it," she says. " Do a Gap ad and you can make your college money. It's the first time I kind of understand it." And while Dunst describes her dimpled baby as " so adorable" she adds, "we will probably just encourage him to do school plays."
