Kirsten Dunst and Lena Dunham are taking part in an art project titled We Think Alone byMiranda July.
July’s goal for the project was to give the public a glimpse inside the lives of some of Hollywood’s biggest names by releasing their private emails. July said, “how they comport themselves in email is so intimate, almost obscene — a glimpse of them from their own point of view.”
While the entire project will span 20 weeks, this week’s theme was all about money.
Dunham tweeted on Monday, “Today: the first installment of @Miranda_July’s #wethinkalone. I have never felt more raw than sharing an email about my finances.”
So what did her email reveal about the Girls star?
Dunham was apparently close to purchasing a sofa, which would have needed to be shipped from Sweden.
The email, dated April 2, 2013, shows her assistant explaining the cost of the Josef Frank-designed Liljevalch Sofa.
“The price to make the Liljevalch Sofa is $14,878.93 plus the fabric which is $283.56 per meter and we would need 20 meters of fabric. So the entire cost of the couch would be $20,554.39,’ the email explained.
“Shipping the sofa: It will take between 16 and 20 weeks to make and ship the sofa to us (from Sweden and will cost $3,080.85, plus $400.00 in customs charges. whenever you pick the fabric I can order for you! xox”
Dunham responded: “decided it’s just too expensive:)”
Meanwhile, Kirsten Dunst revealed a correspondence she had recently regarding selling her car.
In a straightforward email to someone named Sandy, Dunst wrote:
“My friend Jessica is buying my car for 7,000 I gave her your info for payments. She’s going to pay 2,000 up front and then pay the rest as fast as she can. Don’t know the paper work involved, but Warren mentioned he had something. Thanks, Kirsten.”
The project is said to feature other stars in Tinsetown as well. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is featured on the site’s list of people involved with the project, as well as Rodarte fashion designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy.Follow @Infocelebrity on Twitter!
