“It’s really hard to find a three-dimensional character in it,” Oscar-winning actress says

Sally Field may have starred as Aunt May in 2012’s “The Amazing Spider Man,” but she was not a fan of the movie.

“It’s not my kind of movie,” Field said in an interview with Howard Stern. “But my friend Laura Ziskin was the producer, and we knew it would be her last film, and she was my first producing partner, and she was a spectacular human.”

Ziskin, who also produced the original “Spider Man” films with Tobey Maguire, died in 2011.

When Stern asked how much effort she put into her character, Field said, “Not a great deal.”

“It’s really hard to find a three-dimensional character in it, and you work it as much as you can, but you can’t put 10 pounds of shit in a five-pound bag,” she continued. She did go on to praise her co-star Andrew Garfield, however, calling him “a lovely actor.”

Field has been making waves in the news lately with the release of her latest film, “Hello, My Name Is Doris.” In the film, Field plays a woman who gets inspired by a self-help seminar to pursue her much younger co-worker, played by “New Girl” and “American Horror Story” star Max Greenfield.
