Kirsten Dunst made a name for herself when she landed the role of Mary Jane Watson in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man Trilogy. Those movies were huge and opened the doors to many other great opportunities.
So maybe it’s not too surprising to hear her praise her Spider-Man movies and throw shade at all of the reboots. Here’s what she had to say in a new interview with Variety:
Dunst also grew up on movie sets, acting from the age of 12. But her career entered another stratosphere when she was cast as Mary Jane in Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man” trilogy, which helped launch Hollywood’s obsession with comic books. “I wanted to be in that movie so badly,” Dunst says. “I loved it, and I wish we could have made a fourth.”
She’s ambivalent about Sony’s decision to keep rebooting the franchise, now in its third iteration. “I don’t care,” she says of the reboots, admitting she didn’t see the last installment. “Everyone likes our ‘Spider-Man.’ C’mon, am I right or what? Listen, I’d rather be in the first ones than the new ones.”
