Historians Blast Kirsten Dunst's 'Marie Antoinette'





Actress Kirsten Dunst has come under fire from historians for her "frightful" interpretation of tragic French queen Marie Antoinette.

Dunst plays the 18th Century monarch in Sofia Coppola's racy new biopic, which was booed by critics at this year's Cannes Film Festival.

Now her overtly sexual performance has been attacked by France's Marie Antoinette Association as well, who insist the queen's bedroom antics are not factually based.

The association's president Michele Lorin says, "I've seen the trailer for the film on the Internet. It is a fright.

"We've spent years trying to convince people that the queen was not just a libertine who told the starving to eat cake. What do you see on the trailer? You see Marie Antoinette eating cake. You see her lying naked on a chaise lounge.

"I fear the film is going to set us back many years."
