Dunst also revealed that she refused to straighten her teeth to play Mary Jane Watson.
Kirsten Dunst became an international star with her role as Mary Jane Watson in Sam Raimi’s.”SpidermanThe movie trilogy, but she made a career for herself before she became famous in the comics thanks to her roles in hit movies like “Interview with the Vampire”, “Little Women” and “ Jumanji”. However, her success can’t get her paid just for Spider-Man himself, Tobey Maguire. Dunst wasn’t expecting it at first, as Maguire was playing a hero of the same name. But by the time Dunst’s face was used alongside Maguire to market “Spider-Man 2,” something about the pay disparity had dropped.
“The pay gap between me and Spider-Man is huge,” Dunst recently said The Independent. “I didn’t even think about it. I was just like, ‘Oh yeah, Tobey [Maguire] playing Spider-Man. ‘ But do you know who was on the cover of the second ‘Spider-Man’ poster? [She flashes a grin and points at her chest] Spider-Man and I. ”
Dunst also alludes to conversations with the “Spider-Man” group about straightening her crooked tooth, which she denies. “I’m like, ‘Mmmmm, no, I like my teeth,'” the actress said, noting that her confidence at a young age came from working with Sofia Coppola on “The Virgin Suicides.”
“The fact that the coolest girl likes how I look, that’s what protected me,” Dunst said of Coppola. “She makes me feel beautiful. As a 16 year old girl, you feel like crap, don’t you? So my first experience of a more ‘sexy’ role, through her eyes, gave me confidence and helped me deal with a lot of other things. “
Without Coppola, Dunst isn’t sure how long she’ll stay limp in Hollywood. “Who knows? I mean, I have a really good mom too, but my mom is someone who might have said, ‘Yeah, why aren’t the teeth straight?’ ‘, said the actress. It makes me reject it more, I guess.”
But like The Independent note: “On the poster for ‘Spider-Man,’ Mary Jane’s teeth are miraculously straight, and Dunst’s ‘zigzag fangs’ have come back to life to see another day.”
Rumors have persisted for months that Dunst will reprise the role of Mary Jane in the upcoming Marvel movie “Spider Man: No Way Home,” but the actress has denied the role. She said Diversityhowever, she’s willing to return to her role in the comic, saying, “I’ll do it. Why not? That would be fun. I would never say no to something like that.”
