Kirsten admitted it “did not feel like it was a famous kiss” when filming it due to logistical hurdles.

The scene, which was rainy, Kirsten remembers Tobey drowning in the water getting in his nose.

“Water was getting up his nose because of the rain, and then he couldn’t breathe in the Spider-Man suit … and it just felt very late at night,” she said. “I didn’t think about it that way.”

Kirsten added that “the way it was presented to me, [director Sam Raimi] gave me this book of famous kisses, so that made me realize how romantic and special Sam wanted this to be. Even though it wasn’t necessarily feeling that way with Tobey hanging upside down.”

She concluded, “I’m proud to be a part of that. It looked like a great kiss.”

In a previous interview, Kirsten candidly opened up about the pay gap between her and Tobey while filming the trilogy.
