For three films, actress Kirsten Dunst was known as playing the love interest of Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) in Sam Raimi’s trilogy of “Spider-Man” films.
Dunst remains a fan of those films, but has little care or interesting in the two “The Amazing Spider-Man” films that followed, and this year’s “Spider-Man Homecoming”. She even went as far as saying those films were simply “milking that cow for money.”
The current Spider-Man, actor Tom Holland, has now responded to that with a civilised and eloquent answer. He told Movie’n’co UK this week:
“I read it and I saw it. You know, she’s entitled to her own opinion and I’m not one to judge at all. I definitely am not doing this movie for the money. I mean, it’s a job that I think anyone would do regardless of what you were getting paid, you know? All I know is I’ve had the greatest time on this movie and I’ve absolutely loved it and, you know if she doesn’t want to go and see it, I don’t really care. But yeah, I don’t dislike her in any way for what she said and she’s entitled to her own opinion, so it’s all cool.”
“Spider-Man: Homecoming” has performed very well, pulling in more than $630 million worldwide and scoring the second best reviews of the franchise. It remains in cinemas and Holland will remain in the character for the foreseeable future including character appearances in no less than three films over the next two years.
