A Sexist Tweet About Kirsten Dunst Has Led To A Hilarious Meme Celebrating Versatile Female Actors

"Amy Adams could do The Godfather, but Al Pacino couldn’t do Enchanted."

First a little background: Last week, Kirsten Dunst got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame recognizing her iconic contributions to TV and film.

However, in a now-deleted tweet about the ceremony, Reuters said Dunst was "best known for her role as Spiderman's girlfriend."

Anyway, the sexist tweet from Reuters gave rise to other tweets celebrating the versatility of female actors, while also highlighting the credit they so often fail to receive. The meme goes like this:

kirsten dunst could do once upon a time in hollywood but leonardo dicaprio couldn’t do bring it on

Here are some of the best ones:


rachel weisz could do james bond but daniel craig couldn’t do the favourite
