Remember When Paris Hilton’s Fiancée Chris Zylka Beat Up Spider-Man?

Do you remember when the dude that's marrying Paris Hilton was Spider-Man's greatest enemy?

This week wealthy socialite Paris Hilton, 36, announced her engagement to actor and model Chris Zylka, 32.."I am so excited to be engaged to the love of my life and my best friend," Hilton tells PEOPLE. "I have never felt so happy, safe and loved. He is perfect for me in every way and showed me that fairytales [sic] really do exist!"

That name might not be familiar but his face might.

Christopher Michael Settlemire, known professionally as Chris Zylka, is an American actor who’s appeared in several television shows like "The Leftovers", "10 Things I Hate About You" and the MTV horror franchise "My Super Psycho Sweet 16". Zylka has also done low budget sci-fi movies like "Shark Night" (2011) and "Piranha 3DD" (2012).

“Ever since our first date I knew there was something special about him,” she shares. “I have never in my life met a man so loyal, dedicated, and loving. I knew right from the start that I wanted to be with him forever.”

She might think he’s a loving person but Andrew Garfield might not. His highest profile movie role has been in Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man as Eugene "Flash" Thompson. In several scenes, he torments Peter, played by Andrew Garfield, and bullies other kids. After seeing Flash forcing a kid to eat garbage Peter shows how he fights for the little guy and tells him to stop. Flash knocks the stuffing out of Peter.

Not exactly husband material.

“I definitely read the comic books and got as familiar with the comic books as possible," Zylka told MTV SplashPage. "I was always a fan of Spider-Man and most superheroes. There aren't a whole lot of little boys out there that aren't."

Later in the movie, after getting superpowers he uses his Spider abilities to beat Flash at basketball.

Of course, later in the movie Flash shows that he’s a total fanboy for Spider-Man. His motivations for being a bully were also explored a bit. Different from the character played in Sam Raimi's take on the franchise.

"I just really tried to delve into 'why'. Why does Flash do this? And to try to show that to the audience a little bit more than just beating up on Peter or just being an adoring fan of Spider-Man. And maybe showing the backstory a bit more to the character, why he's a bully and stuff like that." He told MTV Splash Page, "[This take on Flash] is maybe showing why and also trying to show why you don't have to be a bully. Just show that area where it's like, 'Oh!' You have an 'aha' moment in your life where it's like, 'This isn't cool. Why am I doing this?' Hopefully that plays well. We'll see!"

So maybe it all works out.
