Kirsten Dunst has babies on the brain.

“I’m in baby mode because two of my really good friends are pregnant right now,” she tells Red in its September issue, on sale Aug. 7.

“One of them is pretty chilled and the other’s like, ‘I can’t wait to have a glass of wine!’ I love it though. We’ve already picked her girl’s name, it’s done! I think 33 is a good age to have your first baby.”

Dunst, 32, is spending the summer in London with actor boyfriend Garrett Hedlund, but she doesn’t admit to having any plans for marriage or children at the moment.

“You don’t know what’s going to happen in the next 10 years. But I get asked that question a lot because I’m in my thirties and it’s like: time to get married and have babies, right? That’s the vibe. Well, I already have a mother to ask those questions, so nobody else needs to!”

For now, Dunst says she’s quite fond of just kicking back.

“I’m not as worried as I used to be. When I was younger, if I wasn’t working, I would get anxiety. I’d feel like I should be doing something. But now, I’m so good at chilling out. In my thirties I’ve become really good friends with relaxing,” she says.

“I have a girlfriend who lives in London – one of the ones who’s pregnant – and we sit in bed all day, watching movies and ordering food in. Not everyone can do that. Some people are like, ‘I have to get outside, I have to do something.’ And I’m like, ‘I’m actually fine not doing anything.’ I lost that part of myself. I’m sure one day, if I have kids, the anxiety of life will come back again, because you’re worried about somebody else.”
