Kirsten Dunst feels ignored by Hollywood.
Dunst, 37, was candid during a recent interview on SiriusXM's “In-Depth with Larry Flick.” The actress, who was promoting her new Showtime series “On Becoming a God in Central Florida,” spoke on her decadeslong career in the industry — and how she feels largely overlooked.
"I know that all you have is your work at the end of the day, and that's all people really care about, and I'm intelligent enough to know that and have perspective," she said. "But sometimes you're like, it'd be nice to be recognized by your peers."
Dunst has starred in numerous films throughout her long career, such as “Jumanji,” “Marie Antoinette” and filmmaker Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man” trilogy, among others. At just 11 years old, she was tapped to portray the character Claudia in the 1994 film “Interview with the Vampire.” Her widely praised performance received a Golden Globe nomination. In 2015, Dunst also received an Emmy nomination for her role in the FX series inspired by the film classic “Fargo.”
But the actress has never received a major acting award.
"Of the things that people like, remember when 'Marie Antoinette' — y'all panned it? And now you all love it. 'Drop Dead Gorgeous'? Panned. Now you all love it," she said. "I feel like a lot of things I do, people like later.”
“I always feel like nobody — I don’t know, maybe they just think I’m the girl from ‘Bring It On,’” she added.
Later, Flick tweeted that his interview with Dunst was “a moment of pure honesty.”
