It’s witness stand, the sequel, for actress Kirsten Dunst.

The “Spider-Man” star reprised her role Tuesday as a star witness in the real-life drama. She testified against a man being retried on charges of helping steal her purse from a New York City hotel room. It was being used as an actors’ lounge during a 2007 movie shoot.

She gave a clipped, subdued account of returning from filming to find her $2,000 handbag gone.

James Jimenez was convicted last fall of trespassing, but jurors deadlocked on a more serious burglary charge. He’s being retried on that charge.

His lawyer says Jimenez just tagged along with a co-defendant he believed had permission to be there.
