Kirsten Dunst has won the Best Actress award at the Cannes Film Festival for her performance in the science-fiction thriller "Melancholia".

Dunst(Interview With the Vampire, Spider-Man) stars in the movie with Charlotte Gainsbourg(The Science of Sleep, 21 Grams) and Kiefer Sutherland(Mirrors, Stand By Me).

This is the third time an actress from a Lars von Trier production has won this award. In 2009, Charlotte Gainsbourg won Best Actress at Cannes for "Antichrist", and Icelandic singer and actress Björk won the same in 2000 for "Dancer in the Dark", a film that also won the Palme d'Or.

Director Lars von Trier(Antichrist, Dogville) raised hackles with his odd words about sympathizing with Hitler during the festival, and was declared "persona non grata" by the board, prompting him to leave before the ceremonies were over.
