Hey everyone,

I was surprised to not see a mention of this on the list somewhere.
If I just didn't find it, pardon the dupilication.

It's in the July 2004 issue of Vogue with Dunst on the cover.

"I tell Dunst she reminds me of River Phoenix, the magical lost boy
to whom "Interview" was dedicated. The reference clicks. Immediately,
Dunst spills out, "He was soooooo amazing - "Running On Empty" is one
of my favorite movies. Jake's mom wrote it - Naomi Foner; she's a
genius writer. His dad's in the industry too; he's a director. River
was going to be in "Interview with A Vampire"! He was going to play
Christian Slater's role. He was so beautiful, so talented. Like, I
watch "Running On Empty" and he's just living life in the movie for
you. You know? He's just living life and being there. And everybody
tries *so* hard, but it isn't how people are. Rare are the people who
can capture a human being."

Her ex-boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal is also featured (separately) in the
mag. "Running On Empty" is mentioned in his article too.

"That movie still moves me," her son (Jake) says. "It always makes me
cry."

Guess the two of them were going through a ROE revival! And shouldn't
EVERYONE?

I love that there are finally quotes from contemporary actors that
don't talk about how sad it is that he is gone and how he was taken
away. Finally there are quotes that celebrate his talent alone! Yea!

"Rare are the people who can capture a human being."

Best,
Elena

That's really cool Elena. I had not seen those quotes before but I
did know that Jake Gyllenhal's mom, Naomi Foner, was the one who
actually wrote Running On Empty.

Elena,
This is one of the most wonderful thing I´ve ever read ( and best
thing to read before I go on vacation in a few mins). It´s great
that
River´s still remained in the hearts and minds of so many artists.
What Kirsten Dunst had said is so touching. I dont know her and her
movies much ( except watching her in Interview with the vampire )
but I really like her now.LOL!
Running on empty and River´s role touch so many people´s hearts.
This
is just beautiful.
Thanks for sharing it with us, Elena! You rockz!!!
peace and love,
Debbie

That's so great! I love reading what various people say about River-
people who were close to him and then other actors, activists etc
who were inspired by him. I really need to see Running on Empty!!
Damn, my non ROE supporting country!
