Kirsten Dunst has opened up about what she loves in a man and the reason may come as a surprise.

The 33-year-old Fargo actress, 33, dished what she looks for in a boyfriend in the latest issue of The Edit, telling the magazine: "I appreciate old-fashioned manners."

It seems her boyfriend, actor Garrett Hedlund, is measuring up to her standards.

"I want a guy to pay for dinner and open the door for me," she said. "I love the masculine."

Dunst, who previously dated celebs like Jake Gyllenhaal and Johnny Borrell, added that she truly goes for a man's man.

"I've dated men who had more of a feminine side," she shared. "And it didn't work."

Dunst told the magazine she generally doesn't enjoy dating actors, but that changed with Hedlund, whom she has been dating for four years now after meeting the Country Strong actor on the set of On the Road in 2010.

As reported by People magazine, it also seems like things between the two may be getting serious.

"I want to continue acting, but I also want to have kids," she revealed. "I think I'll be ready to have them in two years or something."

In the meantime, Dunst is eager to throw her hat into the directing arena. Currently, she is working with a friend on a script, for which she’ll take on the role of director. She notes, however, that her gender is an obstacle to accomplishing her goal.

"I think it's easier for mediocre male directors to be in this industry," Kirsten Dunst said. "As a female you can be a director, but you have to be amazing – that's the disparaging part to it. You have to be really great to get in there."
