Hol­land re­sponds to Dunst's Spi­der-Man crit­i­cism

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Tom Hol­land says Kirsten Dunst is en­ti­tled to crit­i­cize 'Spi­der-Man: Home­com­ing' but he doesn't care if she sees the block­buster. Back in June, the 35-year-old ac­tress - who played Mary Jane Watson in Sami Raimi's tril­ogy be­tween 2002 and 2007 - was dis­mis­sive of Mar­vel Stu­dios and Sony Pic­tures re­boot of the char­ac­ter, which saw the web­sling­ing su­per­hero join the Mar­vel Cin­e­matic Uni­verse for the first time in 'Cap­tain America: Civil War'. New Spi­der-Man Hol­land has now re­sponded to her com­ments claim­ing he "doesn't care" if she sees the film or not as things have now moved on. Speak­ing to Movie 'n' Co UK, the ac­tor said: "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 had the great­est time on this movie and I ab­so­lutely loved it and, you know, if she doesn't want to go and see it, I don't re­ally care. I don't dis­like her in any way for what she said and she's en­ti­tled to her opinion, so it's all cool." The com­ments came after Dunst claimed her and Tobey Maguire's films were the "best ones" and that Spi­der-Man is only still go­ing on the big screen for fi­nan­cial rea­sons. She told Marie Claire mag­a­zine: "We made the best ones, so who cares? I'm like, 'You make it all you want.' They're just milk­ing that cow for money. It's so ob­vi­ous. You know what I mean? I don't care. Ev­ery­one likes our Spi­der-Man. Come on, am I right or what? Lis­ten, I'd rather be in the first ones than the new ones." Hol­land played the Mar­vel comic book leg­end in 'Spi­der-Man: Home­com­ing' fol­low­ing An­drew Garfield's two movie stint from 2012. Fol­low­ing the suc­cess of 'Spi­der-Man: Home­com­ing', both Mar­vel and Sony have an­nounced a se­quel is slated for a 2019 re­lease. Hol­land will be repris­ing his wall-crawl­ing role in the up­com­ing 'Avengers: In­fin­ity War'.
