Kirsten Dunst is not a fan of the Spider-Man reboots.

The actor played Mary-Jane Watson opposite Tobey Maguire in the original Spider-Man trilogy launched in 2002. Just ten years later, Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone took over the lead roles to reboot the franchise in two movies: The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Yet another version of the film - starring Tom Holland and Zendaya and titled Spider-Man: Homecoming - is due for release in July.

When asked about it by Marie Claire recently, Dunst didn't hold back: "We made the best ones, so who cares? I'm like, 'You make it all you want.' They're just milking that cow for money. It's so obvious. You know what I mean?"

It's not the first time Dunst has blasted the more recent Spider-Man movies. She told Variety last month that nothing compares with the original.

"I don't care. Everyone likes our Spider-Man. C'mon, am I right or what? Listen, I'd rather be in the first ones than the new ones."

The first trilogy grossed nearly $3.4 billion worldwide on a $808 million total budget, while the Garfield-led reboot raked in over $1.9 billion.

The Spider-Man films are the ninth highest-grossing film franchise of all time.
