KIRSTEN DUNST & JESSE PLEMONS
Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons live together in LA. They met on the set of the 2015 TV show Fargo, a black comedy in which they played a married couple at the centre of a cover-up – roles for which they won widespread critical praise. Both were child actors, and have continued to carve out enviable careers as adults.
Dunst made her breakthrough in 1994, starring alongside Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt in Interview with the Vampire – a role that won her a nomination for the Best Supporting Actress at the Golden Globes at the age of 12. She has since starred in more than 40 films, including cult classics Drop Dead Gorgeous, The Virgin Suicides, Bring It On and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. She has inhabited a wide variety of roles, ranging from Spiderman’s girlfriend Mary Jane Watson opposite Tobey Maguire to Marie Antoinette in the film by Sofia Coppola, one of Dunst’s regular creative collaborators. In 2011, Dunst won the Best Actress Award at the Cannes Film Festival for her performance as Justine in Lars von Trier’s Melancholia. She also directs and produces, and was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2019. Her recent credits include the dark comedy On Becoming A God In Central Florida, produced by Grant Heslov and George Clooney, and the forthcoming The Power of the Dog, alongside Plemons and Benedict Cumberbatch.
Plemons won his first acting role at the age of three and was cast as the fan-favourite character Landry Clarke in the hit TV show Friday Night Lights at the age of 18. His TV credits include Breaking Bad, in which he played villain Todd Alquist – a character he reprised in the sequel film El Camino. He was nominated for an Emmy for his starring role in USS Callister, an episode of the dystopian science-fiction series Black Mirror. Plemons has played central characters in Steven Spielberg’s Cold War drama Bridge of Spies and political thriller The Post, comedy-drama movie Other People, and Martin Scorcese’s The Irishman other films. In 2020, he starred in I’m Thinking of Ending Things, a thriller written and directed by Charlie Kauffman, named as one of the best films of the year. His upcoming appearances include Disney's Jungle Cruise and the Guillermo Del Torro-produced film Antlers, director by Scott Cooper.
