Kirsten Dunst bursts into tears at 2017 Cannes Film Festival red carpet

Kirsten Dunst was so overwhelmed with emotion at a Cannes Film Festival red carpet that she burst into tears.

The actress attended the premiere of "The Beguiled" at the 10-day film festival earlier in the week, and new photos have surfaced of her dramatic breakdown on the red carpet. Dunst, 35, looked like a total princess in her pastel blue ballgown, but all eyes were on her tears.

She suddenly started crying, catching the attention of paparazzi who quickly snapped photos of the unexpected scene. However, it thankfully looks like Dunst was just crying tears of joy! She was seen smiling with director Sofia Coppola soon after while wiping away any excess tears.

Dunst stars alongside Hollywood's biggest stars in "The Beguiled," including Nicole Kidman and Elle Fanning, so we don't blame her for getting emotional.

Kirsten quickly bounced back from her emotional moment, as she flashed her pearly whites while posing with co-stars Kidman and Fanning. Dakota was totally twinning with Kirsten her own lilac princess ballgown, while Nicole dazzled in a silver fringed ensemble.

The trio posed up a storm on the red carpet together -- and it looks like the chemistry is totally there!
