Kirsten Dunst Got Called ‘Girly-Girl’ on ‘Spider-Man’ Set and Wishes She Pushed Back; She’d Make Another Superhero Movie ‘Because You Get Paid a Lot of Money’1

Kirsten Dunst said in a new interview with Marie Claire that shes finally at a stage in her career where she no longer feels nervous speaking her mind, adding: I feel at home sharing everything on set now. Its a big change from Dunsts experience on the Spider-Man set decades ago. As a young actor, Dunst didnt have the confidence to speak up when things bothered her. Case in point: Being repeatedly called a girly-girl on the Marvel set.

It was a joke, but onSpider-Man, they would call me girly-girl sometimes on the walkie-talkie. We need girly-girl. But I never said anything, Dunst said. Like, dont call me that!

Dunst added that you didnt say anything on sets at that time, especially before the #MeToo movement, and you just took it. She also said that it was a conscious choice not to capitalize off theSpider-Manthing and become a movie-star-movie-star.

Thats great for some people. Its not the artist that I want to be, said Dunst, who decided to go the indie route and team up with auteur filmmakers like Sofia Coppola and Lars von Trier. It was just growing up and migrating to things that spoke to me. I always just navigated with my heart.

Thats not to say Dunst would turn her back on superhero movies today. Would she ever go back to the comic book world? Yes, Dunst said, Because you get paid a lot of money, and I have two children, and I support my mother.

Next up for Dunst is Alex Garlands buzzy action drama Civil War, which A24 is releasing in theaters and Imax this spring. She plays a photojournalist covering an escalating war in a divided America.

Theres definitely less good roles for women my age, Dunst said, noting that every role I was being offered was the sad mom after she earned her first Oscar nomination for The Power of the Dog in 2022.Thats why I didCivil War. When I read the script, I thought,Ive never done anything like this.'

Civil War will have its world premiere a SXSW before opening in theaters April 12. Head over to Marie Claires website to read Dunsts latest profile in its entirety.
