Actress Kirsten Dunst has offered her support to Melancholia director, Lars Von Trier who had made a controversial statement about Nazi leader, Adolf Hitler at the recent Cannes film festival.
Dunst, who was named the best actress at the festival for her role in the film, insists that the director's words "came out wrong".
"He says dumb stuff sometimes but not anything I had ever been offended by. It just came out wrong, that's not Lars at all," Contactmusic quoted the star as saying
"He was trying to make people laugh by telling the story of his life but it was not the right audience for it. He doesn't speak English that often, he's been in Denmark for a long time. It just didn't translate well.
The actress, who shifted awkwardly in her seat at the press conference as her director made his remarks, admitted that she was annoyed with him at the time.
"I was upset, shocked and angry but, at the end of the day, he is still my friend," she added.
The Danish moviemaker had shocked reporters during a Cannes press conference last month when he spoke on about his German heritage and declared that he could 'understand' Hitler.
