London: Hollywood actress Kirsten Dunst says she seeks balance in a man`s personality.

The 29-year-old, who previously had relationships with rocker Johnny Borrell and actor Jake Gyllenhaal, is currently dating musician Jason Boesel and admits that with age she has learnt to find a partner, reported Contactmusic.

"Getting older, you try to pick a partner you are friends with. At least that`s my experience. There obviously has to be some sort of attraction, but not the kind that will be destructive and make you crazy.

"I like someone who`s pretty chilled. I know my life gets hectic and it`s nice to have someone who grounds and centres me," said Dunst.

The `Melancholia` star was rumoured to be quitting acting after she entered rehab to be treated for depression in 2008.

But insisted that she has now "lightened up a lot," partly because she has reduced her workload and moved from Los Angeles to New York.

"Los Angles is just a vampire city! There`s a bubble there with only one type of industry going on and it just gets to me. I have to be open and sensitive as an actress and maybe there`s an aspect of me that takes on too much. Who knows?

"I`ve always been someone who is pretty hard on herself. But I`ve lightened up a lot," she added.
