In many respects, Spider-Man makes for a great role model. "With great power comes great responsibility" is a mantra to live by in your everyday life. But when it comes to dating advice, the wall-crawler should not be the first person you look to.
In the latest episode of After Hours, MTV News' Josh Horowitz walks through the life lessons learned from "The Amazing Spider-Man" with stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone to see if any of it is applicable to the dating world.
Some takeaways: girls love it when you randomly appear at their windows. Taking secret pictures of them, however, is frowned upon.
And fellas, just remember what Andrew Garfield says. It is your duty to aim your web accurately.
"The Amazing Spider-Man" hits theaters July 3.
Few stars in Hollywood embody the "man's man" ideals quite like Mark Wahlberg. He's tough, but he's also a true gentlemen. Plus, he was kind enough to show MTV News' Josh Horowitz a thing or two about acting like a man.
The results were mixed.
In the latest episode of After Hours, Josh and Wahlberg go through the manliest curriculum you've ever seen, covering everything from shot taking to nicknames and primal screams. Everything you'd ever need to know about being the alpha male is all right here in this video. You'd have to be a coward not to watch it.

"Hi, kids. My name is Jean-Claude Van Damme, and I play Bronson Cornelius."
There are only so many ways you can read a line, but during the filming of a recent After Hours segment, MTV News learned that Jean-Claude Van Damme has mastered most of them.
While making the "Lost 'Hunger Games' Audition Tapes" episode of After Hours, the action legend and one of the many icons featured in "The Expendables 2," Van Damme showed off his improvisational skills when it came time to introduce his character, Bronson Cornelius, the 12 year-old who could not stop spin kicking.
Prepare for you master class in improv from Mr. Jean-Claude Van Damme in the latest episode of After Hours.
Anyone who's seen or read "The Hunger Games" knows that about half of the 24 tributes who went to The Hunger Games to represent their districts died in the opening massacre at the Cornucopia. But they all have names and stories just like Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark, and we made it our duty to discover them.
Well, they weren't quite what we expected. We didn't realize Max Greenfield played a tribute from District 43 with a penchant for creating balloon animals. And Jean-Claude Van-Damme was a 12-year-old boy who had to spin kick every 10 minutes or else he'd die. Suddenly we understand why Elizabeth Banks wasn't the biggest fan of this six percent of her cast members.
In a special MTV Movie Awards edition of After Hours, we brought together some of our favorite stars from "True Blood," "The Vampire Diaries" and "Teen Wolf" for a nice MTV News get together. Unfortunately, we didn't realize how weird things would quickly get.
It turns out that the actors who play some of our most beloved supernatural creatures on the small screen have some weird quirks in their private lives. Like "Vampire Diaries'" Candice Accola, who wore a cape and fangs to an audition for a Zac Efron romantic comedy. Or Joe Manganiello, whose weirdness manifests in him pulling his "monster" (i.e. his penis) out at inappropriate times. And "Teen Wolf" star Tyler Hoechlin doesn't want to shave. Ever.
There's no escaping the phenomenon created by the erotic novel "Fifty Shades of Grey." Beginning as "Twilight" fan fiction, the story follows billionaire tycoon Christian Grey and recent college graduate Ana Steele as they begin their sadomasochistic relationship. With the film's rights optioned by Universal Pictures and Focus Features, fans are wondering if Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson will land the lead roles for the characters adapted from Bella Swan and Edward Cullen. Well, the latest After Hours segment, titled "Erotica," may at least help Stewart get the part.
While she said she's interested in reading the sensual fan fiction about her "Twilight" character, she admitted she hasn't gotten around to seeing what the huge buzz is about. "I haven't bought ['Fifty Shades'] yet. I'm kind of dying to read it," she said.
Lucky for Stewart, MTV News' Josh Horowitz just so happened to have a copy on hand and he even generously dog-eared a page for her! She began to read, but not even a sentence in she closed the book and laughed, saying, "I can't believe I'm doing this."
In addition to seeing a brand new clip from "Snow White and the Huntsman" during the MTV First this Tuesday on MTV, you will also be treated to a 30-minute interview on MTV.com, where things get a little intimate.
Does Kristen Stewart own pornography? Has Charlize Theron gone skinny dipping? You can find out all your answers on the latest edition of After Hours with the Yes/No Show.
Be sure to tune into MTV at 7:56 p.m. ET on Tuesday, May 8 for the never-before-seen clip from "Snow White and the Huntman." Then immediately, after you can catch the cast giving an extended 30-minute interview about the upcoming blockbuster.
Tom Hiddleston will suit up as Loki again in "The Avengers," out this Friday, and apparently getting back into character wasn’t very difficult for the Brit. As he tells MTV News' Josh Horowitz, he's actually a lot more like the Norse god than we might have realized.
Of course, his catch phrase "Loki'd" isn't quite as intimidating as some of Loki's stunts in "The Avengers," but we'll overlook that for now. Hiddleston decided to show off some of his trickster tendencies around the MTV offices in a new After Hours, with devastating results.
In an age where social media sites rule the internet, the stars have flocked to Twitter in order to promote their latest projects, raise awareness about charities they support and interact with their fans. But some celebrities aren't using the site to its fullest potential.
MTV News' Josh Horowitz thinks Gael Garcia Bernal is one of them. The "Casa de mi Padre" star is about 83,000 followers shy of one million.
When you think of Will Ferrell, his long tenure as the master of over thirty dialects comes to mind first. Only then do you remember the funny man, the comedian from movies like the upcoming "Casa de mi Padre."
In preparation for the film, Mr. Ferrell spoke with dialect novice Josh Horowitz about the process of mastering your accent in a segment we like to call "Mastering Your Accents."
The legend dialectician covers all the topics you need to know about: his long and bitter rivalry with Meryl Streep, his many victories at the Voicey's. You'll even get a chance to hear the story of Mr. Ferrell's humble origins a simple boy doing a near perfect Italian accent.
