Dunst granted restraining order

Spider-Man actress Kirsten Dunst has gained a restraining order against a man caught trespassing in her home.

Christopher Smith is due to appear in court later this month after Dunst's personal assistant carried out a citizen's arrest on him in November.

The film star was not there at the time, but has since stated that she is "quite frightened" of Mr Smith.

He has been found at Dunst's home several times since in recent weeks, documents have shown.

The actress has never met Mr Smith.

Dunst, who played Mary Jane Watson in the Spider-Man films, revealed earlier this year that she was treated for depression.

Reports in September suggested that Tobey Maguire was considering a deal to reprise the lead role as the superhero, but it was unclear whether Dunst would also return.
