Kirsten Dunst said she trusts her fiance, actor Jesse Plemons’ honest opinion when it comes to critiquing her work. Dunst said her mother, Inez Dunst, finds it hard to separate her daughter from the characters she portrays so Dunst goes to Plemons for more balanced feedback, according to the Times of India.
“My mom does not love everything I do! It’s not that she doesn’t love it… But it’s too personal for her. She can’t disassociate between her daughter and the actress on screen. I have a few good critics. I never do a movie that everyone will like.”
Dunst said both her mother and brother like different things so she trusts Plemons’ opinion the most.
“My brother will like one, my mom liked another. To me, I guess my fiance is the most neutral, I’d trust his opinion the most… In the past, the reviews were hard… When you work on something for long, when I was younger, I’d take criticism to heart. Now with experience and the maturity, I’m not letting that bother me.”
On the hit FX series Fargo, Dunst and Plemons depict a married couple. An insider close to the couple revealed to Page Six that the couple got engaged over Golden Globes weekend.
In September of 2016, Dunst and Plemons, 28, were oblivious to those around them and seen making out at an Emmys after-party. Since then, the couple has been spotted out together in Los Angeles many times.
As for Plemons, since being cast on Breaking Bad, his acting career has been on the rise. Films that followed his success after the hit television show include Black Mass and Bridge of Spies. The couple was most recently spotted at the 2016 Golden Globes together.
Many believe the engagement happened sooner due to Dunst sporting a classic oval-shaped diamond on a gold band at the Palm Springs Film Festival on January 2. According to Yahoo!, Dunst wore the same ring three days later during her appearance on The Late Show With James Corden.
Plemons took notice of Dunst before the start of their romance. Plemons gushed about Kirsten during a panel for PaleyFest in 2015. He said, “It was a gift,” to work alongside Dunst as husband and wife on the FX show.

“I loved Kirsten’s work for a long time, and I was really excited once I’d met her, and she’s a great person, and we’re both actors that just … have fun with the material.”
The actress was nominated for a Golden Globe for her portrayal of Peggy Blumquist in Season 2 of the FX series Fargo. Dunst lost out to international pop star, Lady Gaga, who starred in the FX series American Horror Story: Hotel. Her latest film was the sci-fi drama, Midnight Special that was released on March 18.
Recently, Kirsten Dunst and Garrett Hedlund called it quits after four years, according to E! News. Dunst and Hedlund met in 2010 on the set of the movie, On The Road, in which the actors co-starred. Hedlund portrayed Dean Moriarty, while Dunst played his wife, Camille Moriarty.
Dunst revealed that she and Hedlund initially had no chemistry at all, according to The Edit. However, he had characteristics and old-fashioned manners that she was drawn to. Dunst said she wants a guy to pay for dinner and open doors. Kirsten said she loves masculine guys as she’s dated more feminine men, and it just didn’t work out.

“Even though we had worked together, we didn’t connect until over a year and a half later. We stayed in touch and he’d text me and I’d be like, ‘Oh, I’m having a birthday, come if you want.'”
Dunst spoke kindly of Hedlund in a Town & Country interview and said they have similar backgrounds.
“… He feels like family to me.”
Kirsten’s desire to become a mother was fueled when two of her close friends are starting their journey into motherhood.
In November of 2016, Kirsten revealed to The Edit that she planned to start a family within the next two years.
“… I want to continue acting, but I also want to have kids… I think I’ll be ready to have them in two years or something.”
