Kirsten Dunst - who currently stars in critically acclaimed movie Power of the Dog, in which she plays a lonely widow in 1920s Montana, alongside longtime partner Jesse Plemons - was nominated for a 'Best Performance' accolade at this year's Golden Globes.
Since then, the 39-year-old has been announced as nominee for a Screen Actors Guild awards, too.
But prior to her recent successes, Dunst starred as Spider-Man's love interest Mary Jane Watson in the Marvel franchise. And arguably, the biggest on-screen moment of her career before this year - if we're talking things that had Twitter all aflutter - was her upside down kiss, in the pouring rain, with the Tobey Maguire, who played the film's protagonist.
The Marie Antoinette actor has now revealed, to many people's devastation, that her IRL experience of that kiss was a lot less romantic than the movie made it look.

But continued to reveal the not hugely comfortable on-set conditions: 'I did not feel like it was a famous kiss because Tobey was... Water was getting up his nose because of the rain, and then he couldn't breathe in the Spider-Man suit, and then... And it just felt very late at night. I didn't think about it that way.'
Letting on that director Sam Raimi gave her a book to read about famous kisses, to help give her inspiration ahead of the moment, she said: 'So that made me realise how romantic and special Sam wanted this to be. Even though it wasn't necessarily feeling that way with Tobey hanging upside down.'
Conceding that her on-screen kiss with Maguire, who she briefly dated in 2001 while the pair filmed the first Spider-Man movie, was now a celebrated big screen event, she added: 'Well, I'm proud to be a part of that.'
