Kirsten afraid of spiders

Kirsten Dunst has admitted she is terrified of spiders.

The Spider-Man actress said: "I can't stand them.

I don't want to kill them but they don't need to be in the house.

"If it's in the shower, it'll be whoops, turn on the water and bye Mr Spider. But I'm always afraid that they'll crawl up, attack me and get revenge."

Kirsten, 22, revealed her phobia as she said she will quit acting if it becomes a chore reports The Sun.

She added: "It's always playtime, especially when you work with great actors who consider it playtime too.

But as soon as it turns into work - like when you do a scene over and over again - then it's not worth it to me."
