Kirsten Dunst's relationship with Garrett Hedlund is ''going really well''.

The 33-year-old actress has been with the actor since 2012 and they fell for each other after meeting on the set of their film 'On the Road'.

Kirsten has revealed the pair are so loved-up because they are very similar people.

Speaking to Town & Country magazine, she said: ''We've been together for three-and-a-half years, so, yes, it's going really well. We're the same age. We have similar backgrounds. He feels like family to me.''

Elsewhere in the interview with the publication, Kirsten complained about the expectations that are place on actors.

The 'Melancholia' star insists her profession is unique in terms of the additional pressures put on Hollywood stars.

She moaned: ''What people expect of an actor is totally ridiculous. It's unfair that an artist is expected to speak really well in public and have skin tough enough to withstand sometimes really hurtful criticism, but also, in order to do the job, be really sensitive and in touch with their feelings ... So all you can do is be yourself - just be who the hell you are.''
