Just a few days after Kirsten Dunst lamented the lack of recognition for her work in the film industry, she finally got a taste of the recognition she deserves.

The Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated actress was honored with her own star on
The Hollywood Walk of Fame which was unveiled last Thursday at Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles, California. Dunst was accompanied by her fiance actor Jesse Plemons at the ceremony recognizing her contributions in the film industry.

Dunst’s recognition followed her recent remarks about how she feels completely ignored in the industry. Despite starring in numerous films since her younger years, the Fargo star believes she’s one of the most underrated actresses in Hollywood. And she’s probably right.

In a recent interview on In Depth With Larry Flick, Dunst admits that she’s faced “a lot of disappointment” for her lack of recognition. The actress reveals how her earlier works didn’t resonate with audiences at the time but are only now getting a following. “I’m like, ‘Well, remember when Marie Antoinette — y’all panned it? And now you all love it. Remember Drop Dead Gorgeous? Panned and now you all love it. It’s like interesting for me. I feel like a lot of things I do people like later.”

She, later on, shared her frustrations about only receiving nods twice in her lengthy career span of over two decades.

“I always feel like nobody,” she says and then later on reflecting, “maybe they think I’m just the girl from Bring It On? I don’t know.”
