Spider-Man stars ‘find love offstage’

Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark finally opened in New York on Tuesday (14Jun11) after months of delays, setbacks, cast changes and accidents, and the Broadway show’s two lead actors happily posed for pictures together at the opening, with their arms affectionately wrapped around each other.

It has now emerged that Carney, who plays the superhero and his alter-ego Peter Parker, and Damiano, who stars as Spider-Man’s love interest Mary Jane Watson, have become a real-life couple, according to the New York Post’s Page Six.

A source tells the gossip column, “At first it seemed like she really didn’t like him. But it turned out that maybe it was just her way of flirting. Now it is so cute, they are inseparable.”

Another insider adds, “It’s life mirroring art,. They’ve shared a yearlong (sic) dream together. We could read between the lines.”
