“I know, right. It’s lucky I didn’t know much about Aunt May because I might have been horrified if I’d seen the original image of a grey-haired pensioner. Don’t toy with my heart, Marvel. Is that really how you view me?” she laughed when The Guardian interviewed her. The Oscar-winning actress is only 50 and she never needed marriage to be happy.
