According to a report from Entertainment Tonight.com, Kirsten Dunst wishes she would get credit for doing something other than starring in Bring It On.
Dunst has had an illustrious career as an actress, starring in cult classics, films, and TV shows such as Spiderman, Interview With A Vampire, and Smallville.
However, during an interview with Larry Flick on his Sirius XM Radio Show, In-Depth with Larry Flick, Kirsten claims she never truly felt the “power” of storytelling. The star said to Larry, “well, remember when Marie Antoinette – y’all panned it?”
Today, Marie Antoinette, directed by Sofia Coppola, is considered as a classic movie, but it wasn’t received well at the time of its release. She went on to refer to other movies like Drop Dead Gorgeous as well, which was panned as well when it came out but later found its audience.
Kirsten also feels like she hasn’t received the awards she would like despite getting her start in the business back in the early 1990s. Appearing a bit disappointed in how things have turned out for her, Kirsten said, “Maybe they think I’m just the girl from Bring It On? I don’t know.”

As fans of the actress know, she starred in the hit teen movie back in 2000, Bring it On, as a cheerleader, Torrance. She went on to say that she feels as though she might not “play the game” as well as she should, and maybe that’s the reason she hasn’t received awards or nominations.
According to Dunst, she’s not the type of person to rustle other people’s feathers, she’s not rude, and she doesn’t do anything for publicity. She’s just a committed actress. However, the Interview With A Vampire alum stated that she felt as though it’d be nice to receive recognition from her peers.
At the moment, Dunst is working on her new Showtime series, On Becoming A God In Central Florida, where she plays Krystal Stubbs. Speaking with ET at the premiere of her production, Dunst dished on the struggles of being a working mom, adding that she channeled her lethargy as a mother for her character.
