If you’re on a date with Kirsten Dunst, make sure to pick up the check.

The Fargo actress, 33, got candid about what she looks for in a boyfriend in the latest issue of The Edit, telling the magazine: “I appreciate old-fashioned manners.”

Her boyfriend, actor Garrett Hedlund, fits the bill in the chivalry department. “I want a guy to pay for dinner and open the door for me,” she said. “I love the masculine.”

Dunst, who’s previously dated celebs like Jake Gyllenhaal and Johnny Borrell, added that, “I’ve dated men who had more of a feminine side,” she shared. “And it didn’t work.”

While Dunst said she generally doesn’t enjoy dating actors, she and Hedlund have been dating for four years now after meeting on the set of On the Road in 2010. “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.”

Until she’s ready to start a family, Dunst said she’s eager to transition into directing for the next phase of her career. Unfortunately, the actress said her gender is an obstacle in accomplishing that goal: “I think it’s easier for mediocre male directors to be in this industry,” she 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.”
