Kirsten Dunst is rumoured to be engaged to Jesse Plemons, AKA Landry from Friday Night Lights, and are we the only ones who didn’t realise they were even dating?!
According to Page Six Kirsten and Jesse, who played a married couple on TV show Fargo, got engaged on the weekend after dating for less than a year – Kirsten was in a relationship with actor Garrett Hedlund for several years but it’s understood they split in early 2016.
However, Kirsten was wearing a ring on ~that~ finger when she walked the red carpet in Palm Springs on January 2, so this delightful news may have happened a couple of weeks ago or more.
Kirsten and Jesse haven’t confirmed the report, but assuming it’s true, congratulations to the couple we didn’t even know are a couple!
For Kirsten, getting engaged to a Friday Night Lights star could be a dream come true. Back in 2015 during an interview about gaining weight for her role in Fargo, she told Jimmy Kimmel “I just sat in bed, watched Friday Night Lights, and, like, ate."
Landry always did deserve to get the girl.
Let us raise a Tami Taylor-sized glass of wine to Kirsten and Jesse and hope their love is like Texas – forever.
