Juliette Binoche believes Steven Spielberg doesn't write good roles for women.

The 'Certified Copy' actress claims she has been approached to star in a number of Spielberg films - including 'Jurassic Park' and 'Schindler's List' - but has turned down the opportunity because he is "more interested in men".

She said: "I think he's an amazing producer - he made major films so I would love to work with him once or twice. But he's more interested in men, I think, more than in women."

The Oscar-winning star admits she prefers more feminine "inspiration" in films.

She told Radio 5 Live: "With the feminine world, you have to have some more feminine inspiration and heart, somehow."

Binoche recently came under fire from French actor Gerard Depardieu, who claimed she has offered "nothing" to the world of cinema.

He said: "Please can you explain to me what the secret of this actress is meant to be? I would really like to know why she has been so esteemed for so many years. She has nothing. Absolutely nothing."
