The 33-year-old actress has been dating her On The Road co-star Garrett since 2012 and thinks it’s their similar priorities that has led to them having such a successful romance.

“I feel like we’re good at doing our own thing but also at coming together,” Kirsten, who dated Jake Gyllenhaal from 2002 to 2004, told Britain’s InStyle magazine. “In other relationships… Just we were too enmeshed. We had to do everything together.

“I see reflected in him (Garrett) what I see in myself ­ a sensitivity and someone who’s family-oriented. Look. All I can say is it’s my longest relationship, so it’s working, right?”

One thing Kirsten is hoping for in the near future is a trip down the aisle. However, she isn’t planning on having a big celebrity wedding, instead planning a more intimate ceremony.

“I am someone who wants to get married… If it happens in my mid-to-late 30s, it’s going to be intimate,” she said. “Courthouse, dinner party and DJ with friends and family. I’ll treat it like it would be my fortieth birthday.”

Kirsten’s breakthrough role was in 1994 movie Interview with the Vampire, and she has since starred in films including Little Women, The Virgin Suicides and Get Over It.

She has also worked with various companies on campaigns, and admits she wouldn’t be able to be so picky with her movie roles if it wasn’t for her offshoot work.

“If it weren’t for fashion and beauty campaigns, I wouldn’t have the finances to pick and choose my projects,” she said when asked about sexism in Hollywood. “Literally, it’s the only industry that supports women in that way.”

Kirsten has also always done her utmost to be herself in Hollywood. Despite being told on occasion to change her slightly wonky teeth, the actress has always refused to alter her appearance.

“Sofia (Coppola) said to me when I was 16, ‘Don’t ever change your teeth’. By the time I got to Spider-Man, they were like, ‘You should change your teeth.’ I said, ‘No, that’s what makes me special.’ I never felt like I had to become something I wasn’t.”
