"Spider-Man" actress Kirsten Dunst has served as a star witness against a man charged in the theft of her designer purse from a New York City hotel suite while she was on a movie set.

The 27-year-old Dunst on Thursday gave jurors a rundown of the August 2007 theft. She says she was filming the comedy "How to Lose Friends and Alienate People" at the SoHo Grand hotel when she discovered her $2,000 Balenciaga bag and its contents, including $2,000 in cash, were missing. The purse and her credit cards were eventually returned.

Thirty-five-year-old James Jimenez is charged with burglary. His lawyer has pinned the blame on a co-defendant who pleaded guilty to attempted burglary.
