MTV – Gwen Stacy is going to have some competition for Peter Parker’s heart in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” when Shailene Woodley enters the scene as the new Mary Jane Watson.
But first, let’s check in with the old Mary Jane, shall we?
During the recent press junket for “On the Road,” Kirsten Dunst spoke to MTV News about Woodley’s casting as Peter’s fiery-haired love interest. In short: she very much approves of the choice.
“I really like her too, a lot,” Dunst said about Woodley getting the role, going on to detail the encounters they’ve had in the past. “I’ve met her a few times and we’ve talked about health foods, we know some of the same people, she’s really into finding springs and natural water and she’ll go get her water and things like that. I’ve done that before, and we’ve talked about that. I think she’s a sweetheart and such a good actress.”
“I’m happy,” is Dunst’s ultimate position on the casting. “If I had to pick someone, I’m happy she’s following in my shoes.”
