Kirsten Dunst Isn't Happy About Being Labeled 'Spider-Man's Girlfriend' Either

She didn't win Wimbledon before becoming the most depressed bride in movie history to earn this disrespect.

After getting her big Hollywood break with 1994’s Interview with the Vampire when she was just 12, Kirsten Dunst has been in several critically acclaimed movies and TV shows and is something of a veteran at this point in her impressive career. So you can imagine furor that arose when Reuters decided to label the Golden Globe and Emmy-nominated actress as someone who is best known as “Spider-Man’s girlfriend.”

To get everyone up to speed, Kirsten got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Reuters reported the news in a since-deleted tweet that read, ” Kirsten Dunst, best known for her role as Spider-Man’s girlfriend, receives star on Hollywood Walk of Fame.”

Unsurprisingly fans quickly jumped on Reuters for this blatant disrespect, reminding the publication that she didn’t win Wimbledon before becoming the last Queen of France to be labeled merely “Spider-Man’s girlfriend.”

After initially remaining quiet on the matter, Kirsten has finally responded to Reuters’ tweet and, well, she wasn’t too happy (rightfully so).

Appearing on The Talk to talk about her new show, On Becoming a God in Central Florida, the actress addressed the tweet:

“Well you know, I don’t really look at Twitter and stuff, so I’m not really a social media girl. But I was looking for the show and everything, and it felt like, you know, I read it too and was like ‘Yeah, that’s pretty s****y.’ So I was proud that my fans and everyone rallied around and supported me. It was a very ignorant tweet, and it was probably done very carelessly by a man.”

Hear, hear.

To be fair, Reuters probably didn’t have any bad intentions behind the tweet and there are some people out there who legit only know Kirsten for Spider-Man, which isn’t too farfetched of a thought given how those are easily the biggest films she’s been in.

But seeing as how she had just gotten a star on the Walk of Fame, being labeled “Spider-Man’s girlfriend” in that moment was pretty icky. At the very least they could’ve called her “Mary Jane Watson from Spider-Man.”

The Joke Is Over Folks, Sean Bean Is Done Dying For Your Entertainment

Can't really blame him at this point.

Between getting his head lopped off on Game of Thrones, being an archery practice dummy in Lord of the Rings and being crushed by a giant antenna in Goldeneye, it’s a bit of an understatement to say that Sean Bean has had his fair share of epic onscreen deaths.

Well folks, it’s time to retire the “Sean Bean dies in this movie/show” joke because he is tired of meeting the grim reaper for your entertainment.

Chatting to The Sun, the actor says he’s had enough of playing characters who get shuffled off this mortal coil. In fact, he’s gone one step further by turning down roles that see him bite the dust.

“I’ve turned down stuff. I’ve said, ‘They know my character’s going to die because I’m in it!’ I just had to cut that out and start surviving, otherwise it was all a bit predictable.

And you know what, fair play to him. There’s only so many times you can die (onscreen) before it gets boring and when you’ve been doing it for 35 or so years like Sean Bean, it’s bound to get a little boring.

“Don’t…don’t ever get typecast as the guy who dies all the time…promise me…”

While the glorious deaths spanning from the 80s to Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones are no longer going to happen, Sean is open to grievous bodily harm (onscreen) – just as long as he survives.

“I did do one job and they said, ‘We’re going to kill you’, and I was like, ‘Oh no!’ and then they said, ‘Well, can we injure you badly?’ and I was like, ‘OK, so long as I stay alive this time’.”

“Sean Bean gets seriously injured” doesn’t quite have the same ring to it as “Sean Bean dies” but hey, we’ll take what we can get at this point.

“Look, I may be losing my head here but as long as I’m still alive, alright?”

It’s been a good run folks and we’ll forever have those memories of the actor’s many onscreen deaths – and that hilarious “Don’t kill Sean Bean” social media campaign – but the joke is officially over and it’s time to find a new one.

We hereby nominate Samuel L. Jackson as Sean Bean’s replacement. Not only does he actually have more onscreen deaths than the man who was once Ned Stark but he seems to have no qualms about carking it as long as it’s a cool-looking death.

Channing Tatum And His Ballsack On Canvas Is The Answer To Your Bland Decor

You know you need this in your house and life.

Let’s get this out of the way: Channing Tatum is a good looking man. He is so damn gorgeous you just want to hang some art of him on a wall and have that smouldering – and occasionally goofy – stare in your life forever.

Well good news, folks because you can legit to exactly that.

Artist Chris Mann – whose work is described as “charged with emotional resonance, rife with sensuality” – has decided to gift the world with an original painting of Channing Tatum. But it’s not just any portrait of the Magic Mike star.

It’s an oil-on-wood painting depicting Channing sitting a wearing nothing but a grey jumper that he’s tugging on suggestively with his right hand. His right leg is bent upwards to hide his modesty but he definitely got the angle wrong as his surprisingly clean-shaven ballsack is in full view.

It is a goddamn masterpiece for the ages and you need to feast your eyes on it right now:

I am the furthest from an art expert you’re going to get but having a half-naked Channing Tatum (and his scrotum) on a canvas in my room will more than offset the bland decor and win me brownie points with my arty mates.

If you want this gem of a painting then you better get onto Ebay quickly with a fat stack of money because it ain’t cheap. At the time of writing, the Channing painting is going for about $1,575USD (about $2,320AUD, not including the $35 for international shipping) and there’s less than three days left on the clock to lodge a bid.

Look at it this way: some bland decor will set you back around a few hundred but a portrait of half-nude Channing Tatum with his balls hanging out is priceless and getting it for $2-3k is a bargain.
