Screen icon Kirsten Dunst is no puppet

08 October 2011

Hollywood's leading lady Kirsten Dunst has revealed her anger over being made to feel like a puppet on some film sets.

The actress, best known for films including The Virgin Suicides, Marie Antoinette, Bring it On, Wimbledon and the Spider-Man trilogy admits she has struggled to work with some directors, but her recent experience shooting Melancholia with Lars Von Trier was not like that.

The gorgeous star said "I've felt like a puppet on films before and have been really frustrated and angry.

I mean, Lars might see himself as some master manipulator but that's not how he comes across. I mean, most of the scenes were improvised and he doesn't even say that much. How can that make me his puppet?"

Dunst rose to prominence at the tender young age of 10 when she starred alongside Hollywood royalty Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise as Claudia in the vampire flick Interview with the Vampire and reminisced on the experience as being fun and educational adding "It never felt like work, that's for sure. Brad and Tom treated me like their little sister, their little princess. But I think children handle things better than adults. As an adult, you get insecure. You're tired, you're worried about how you look and what it all means.

When you're a kid, you just think, 'Oh I like my dress. Let's go and play!' "

Dunst can currently be seen as Justine in Von Trier's Melancholia and has completed work on Leslye Headland's Bachelorette with Aussie hottie Isla Fisher and has Walter Salles' On the Road and Juan Diego Solanas' Upside Down in post production.
