Dunst in "Bring It On." (Universal Pictures)
Kirsten Dunst got some literal cheers at the Toronto International Film Festival last night.
The 30-year-old "On the Road" star was at the end of the film's red carpet at the Ryerson Theatre, sparkling in huge diamonds accessorizing a blush pink Dior gown, when a bunch of fans started singing a verse from "Mickey."
"Oh Mickey, you're so fine/You're so fine you blow my mind/Hey Mickey!" they chanted on Thursday evening.
If you think that's a little out of nowhere, you must be forgetting that Toni Basil's 1982 pop tune was one of the breakout hits from Dunst's 2000 cheerleader comedy "Bring It On." Twelve years before she became a serious actress ("Melancholia," anyone?), Dunst played a newly-crowned head cheerleader who discovers her squad's old captain stole their routines from an inner-city school. The over-the-credits performance of "Mickey" was one of "Bring It On's" many highlights.
Dunst didn't seem to mind the flashback. In fact, she started laughing midway through one of her red carpet interviews and turned around to point out the singers.
The actress appeared last night with co-stars Kristen Stewart, who was surprisingly poised considering this was her first appearance post-scandal, and Garrett Hedlund, Dunst's rumoured boyfriend.
Though she and Hedlund did not get too cozy on the red carpet (the actor mostly stood by Stewart -- who, let's face it, probably needed the support), the pair flew to Toronto together on Thursday morning. Only two days before, the Los Angeles residents were spotted walking hand in hand through New York, presumably stopping there on their way to the T Dot.
