Kirsten Dunst has had it with all the rumors about her going to rehab for drug or alcohol addiction.

She wants you people to know she was depressed.

"I was struggling, and I had the opportunity to go somewhere and take care of myself," Dunst told E! Online. "I was fortunate to have the resources to do it. My friends and family thought it was a good idea too."

That’s why she went to Cirque Lodge, the same posh rehab where Lindsay Lohan and Eva Mendes sought treatment for their issues.

"Now that I’m feeling stronger, I was prepared to say something … . Depression is pretty serious and should not be gossiped about," Dunst said.

Well, yes. But then neither should drug or alcohol problems.

Congrats for taking care of yourself, Kiki. Keep up the good work.
