Elizabeth Banks was 'too old' to play love interest of Tobey Maguire, who is 'basically the same age' as her.
Elizabeth Banks is on the cover of the July issue of Glamour, and in an interview with the magazine, she reveals that she lost the role of Tobey Maguire's girlfriend Mary-Jane in the 2002 film Spider-Man because she was "too old." When filming began, Maguire was 27 and Banks was 16 months older than him. Wow, so ancient! Why would a virile young weirdo in a spandex bodysuit ever want to date an elderly hag over a year older than him? Come on now. Be realistic.
