Kirsten Dunst's Depression Confession

Everyone can stop picking on

Kirsten Dunst

for her hard-partying ways, now that the actress has revealed that she didn't actually

check into rehab

earlier in the year because of her excessive drinking.

“I didn’t go to Cirque Lodge for alcohol abuse or drug abuse,” Kiki said in a new interview to E!. “I went there for depression.”

The actress says that it took six months before she admitted she needed help.

“I was struggling, and I had the opportunity to go somewhere and take care of myself," she said. "I was fortunate to have the resources to do it. My friends and family thought it was a good idea, too. But I didn't know where to go. My doctor recommended Cirque Lodge."

Kirsten says she's also taking this opportunity to clear up the rumors that have been circling about her recently. "There has been a lot of misrepresentation about what is going on in my life," she insists. Basically saying that talk that she is a walking mess are just untrue and are "very painful for my friends and family."

“Everyone feels like they have to defend me. They hear the rumors, and it puts them in a defensive position," she adds. "Now that I’m feeling stronger, I [am] prepared to say something.”

As for her love life, Kirsten felt the need to address those rumors that she is getting it on with her All Good Things co-star. "I am not dating Ryan Gosling!”

 Well, at least that's a bit good news.
