Open Post: Hosted By Kirsten Dunst Talking About How She Refused To Fix Her Teeth For “Spider-Man”

November 20, 2019 / Posted by:

Kirsten Dunst may question whether she’s been adequately compensated for her years of acting service, but she should never – NEVER – doubt her recognized value in the world of not-perfect teeth. She’s the unsung Hollywood hero to those out there with snaggles, gaps, busted bites, summer teeth, and wrecked chompers. And yet, there are people out there who have dared to suggest that Kirsten get herself to a cosmetic oral specialist and overhaul her dental situation.

During an interview with to promote On Becoming A God In Central Florida, 37-year-old Kirsten said that since she’s been acting for a while, she’s used to being asked to do stuff that she doesn’t want to do, and says she really doesn’t have an issue with establishing boundaries. She said that her character was supposed to dance with a live snake on OBAGICF, and she flat-out refused to do that. She also described a time during the filming of 2002’s Spider-Man when she was suspended from the ceiling for a stunt, did it once, and told producers, “Well, you should’ve shot that because I’m never doing it again. You’ll have to find another way.

But the most slanderous suggestion of all came from a Spider-Man producer, who wanted Kirsten to give her teeth a Hollywood makeover.

“On Spider-Man one of the producers tried to subtly coerce me into changing my teeth into those perfect Barbie doll teeth. I was like, ‘Nope, not doing that either’.”

There’s a small chance that bungee stunt could have killed her, but that teeth suggestion would have 100% killed her look. The three films in the Sam Raimi Spider-Man series were released between 2002 and 2007, which as I recall was kind of the height of big, flat, bright Zoom-whitened veneer work. Sure, it might look like Kirsten had an issue removing her oral prosthetics from Interview With the Vampire, but at least it’s a unique look. A set of brand-new teeth made in 2002 might age ok, but they also might have ended up looking even more busted than before. Especially if the dentist she went to tried to upsell her on the tackiest dental accessory of the early 2000s, which is of course the diamond tooth implant. I’d rather have a snaggle tooth than a divot in my front left incisor that has me urging people, “Don’t ask, it was 2002.
