Kirsten Dunst says she would have done a better job of playing Sylvia Plath than Gwyneth Paltrow.
Teen Hollywood reports the Spider-Man star told fashion mag Nylon she wanted to play the suicidal poet in the film about her life.
She says Oscar-winning Paltrow is an amazing actress, but she failed to capture the essence of Plath.
Dunst said: "I think that Sylvia was a girl who wanted to hurt. She wanted to feel terrible.
"I felt like, in the movie, it was more like, 'I'm the victim!' It should have been more that she liked to create all this s**t in her head. She was crazier."
Dunst says she'd now like to take on the role of actress and activist Jean Seberg, who died from a drug overdose in Paris in 1979.
