"I've never been recognized in my industry," she said. "I've never been nominated for anything."
Kirsten Dunst wants you to know she's more than just the "girl from 'Bring It On.'"
In an interview with SiriusXM's "In-Depth With Larry Flick" Tuesday, the actress, 37, talked about why she thinks she's "never been recognized" in the industry.
"I've never been nominated for anything," Dunst said. "Maybe, like, twice for a Golden Globe when I was little and one for 'Fargo.' Maybe they just think I'm the girl from 'Bring It On?' I don't know."
"I feel like, 'What did I do?'" she continued. "I am so chill. Maybe I don't play the game enough? But then I do, I mean, I do everything I'm supposed to. It's not like I'm rude or, like, not doing publicity or anything."
The former child star expressed that she believes many of her projects are more well-received years later.
"For me, I feel like a lot of things I do people like later," Dunst said. "Remember when 'Marie Antoinette' [came out] -- y'all panned it? And now you all love it. Remember 'Drop Dead Gorgeous?' Panned. Now you all love it."
Dunst made her acting debut in Woody Allen's short film "Oedipus Wrecks" when she was just six years old. The star received a Golden Globe nomination for her role in 1994's "Interview with a Vampire," but didn't score her second until 2015 for "Fargo." She also was nominated for an Emmy for "Fargo."
"The Beguiled" star has appeared in blockbuster films like Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" to more dramatic movies like "Melancholia" and "The Virgin Suicides." Dunst currently stars in the Showtime dark-comedy "On Becoming a God in Central Florida."
"All you have is your work at the end of the day and that's all people really care about," Dunst said. "And I'm intelligent enough to know that and have perspective. But sometimes, you're like, 'it'd be nice to be recognized by your peers.'"
