KISS AND TELL Romancing a superhero isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Just ask the red wigged Kirsten Dunst, who plays Mary Jane opposite Tobey Maguire’s Peter Parker in Sam Raimi’s ”Spider-Man” (due in 2002). ”I’ve been in the pouring rain in skimpy outfits, night shooting, getting my close ups at 6:30 a.m. before the sun comes up, and seriously hard stuff,” says the 18 year old. ”This film has really been working me, that’s for sure.”

And kissing a man in tights is no picnic either. ”[Tobey] was inside his Spider-Man suit and I had to pull down his mask to his lips,” she says, describing a recent scene shot in L.A. ”He was gasping for breath in between kisses because he was hanging upside down [and] we were in the rain. It was not a romantic kind of feeling!”
