Kirsten Dunst and Garrett Hedlund have reportedly split after dating for over four years, US Weekly reports.
The pair, who were last seen together at the Golden Globe awards last January, started dating in January 2012. Before the split, the Fargo star and Pan actor had been living together in Los Angeles and were reportedly on the verge of getting engaged.
They first met as co-actors in the film adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s On the Road in 2011.

“I took her out on a 3 a.m. canoe ride,” Hedlund said in an interview with Details in 2013. “It was not a stable canoe. We fell out and had to swim back in mucky, s—-y water, like golf-pond water.”
Kirsten and Garrett kept the details of their relationship private for the most part, but both have opened up about each other on a few occasions.
Dunst expressed her utmost appreciation for the actor in several interviews, proving that she was happy with the relationship.
In an interview with Net-A-Porter, Kirsten opened up about what she likes in a man, alluding of course to her romance with Hedlund.
“I appreciate old-fashioned manners,” she told the mag. “I want a guy to pay for dinner and open the door for me. I love the masculine.”
She also talked about her plans of getting married and having a family in the not-so-distant future.
“I want to continue acting, but I also want to have kids,” she said. “I think I’ll be ready to have them in two years or something.”
In InStyle UK‘s cover story for May, Dunst talked at length about her romance with Garrett, citing their unique blend of similarities and differences as the reason on why their relationship has endured for years.
“I feel like we’re good at doing our own thing but also at coming together… I see reflected in him what I see in myself – a sensitivity and someone who’s family-oriented. Look, all I can say is it’s my longest relationship, so it’s working, right?!”
In the same interview, Dunst talked yet again about her marriage plans with Garrett, noting that she prefers the affair to be “intimate.”
“I am someone who wants to get married… If it happens in my mid-to-late 30s, it’s going to be intimate,” the Jumanji actress confirms. “Courthouse, dinner party and DJ with friends and family. I’ll treat it like it would be my fortieth birthday.”
Hedlund had his first big break as an actor after being cast in 2004’s Troy. Numerous acting projects have followed since then, with the actor landing roles in Friday Night Lights, Tron: Legacy, Unbroken, and Pan.
Dunst had an early start to her acting career, landing a role in Woody Allen’s 1989 film New York Stories at age six. In 1994, Dunst hit it big when she was cast alongside high-caliber actors like Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt for Interview With The Vampire: Vampire Chronicles. She went on to land roles in popular films including Little Women (1994), Jumanji(1995) and Small Soldiers (1998).
Kirsten’s popularity reached stratospheric heights when she was cast as Peter Parker’s love interest, Mary Jane Watson, in Spider-Man(2002). She reprised the role in the succeeding sequels, Spider-Man 2 (2004) and Spider-Man 3(2007).
Dunst and Hedlund have yet to confirm to the media that they have split. Kirsten recently ended her stint on FX’s Fargo, which earned her a Golden Globe nomination. Hedlund, on the other hand, is set to co-star alongside Kristen Stewart, Vin Diesel, Chris Tucker, and Steve Martin for Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk.
