Kirsten Dunst Wasn't Paid the Same as 'Spider-Man' Co-Stars: 'The Men Were Getting Paid More'

Kirsten Dunst is on the cover of Variety alongside her The Beguiled director Sofia Coppola.

Here’s what they had to share with the mag:

Kirsten, on not getting equal pay for Spider-Man: “Because I was young, I thought, ‘Oh wow, I’m getting paid a lot of money for the ‘Spider-Man’ movies.’ But definitely the men were getting paid more. So yes, I experienced that.”

Kirsten, on the new Spider-Man movies: “I don’t care. 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.”

Kirsten, on Sofia giving her confidence: “She was always a good influence on me as a young woman…She said to me, ‘I love your teeth; don’t ever fix your teeth.’ I remember doing a ‘Spider-Man’ movie later and one of the producers was like, ‘I need to take you to the dentist!’ They even fixed my teeth on the poster. But I just knew I was never doing that. Sofia is the chicest, coolest girl, and she thinks my teeth are great.”
