Kirsten Dunst Explains When She & Fiance Jesse Plemons Will Get Married

Kirsten Dunst is featured in the latest issue of PorterEdit, out now.

Here’s what the 37-year-old actress had to say…

On choosing when she and Jesse Plemons will marry: “But we’re about as married as you can get. We have a kid together. My mom was like, ‘But when are you guys getting married?’ And I said, ‘Mom, I’m not going to get married when I’m pregnant. I want to have fun and have a drink. I mean, we’re paying for this wedding. I’m paying for the bar! I want to enjoy it.’ [My mom is] kind of old school that way.”

On vanity and embracing her post-baby body: “The benefit of growing up with [celebrity] is that I have a very healthy perspective of being an actress. I haven’t worked out once since I had my baby. I’m not one of those people who says [affects a funny voice], ‘Ohhh, I have to get my abs back’. I feel like I’ve established myself as an actress. I have a healthy amount of vanity that hasn’t tipped into something really destructive. I want to find parts where I don’t have to be that person, and I have plenty of role models. Look at Patricia Arquette.”

On trusting her gut when meeting her now-fiancé on the set of Fargo: “(I) knew he was going to be a soulmate. He’s my favorite actor; the best I’ve ever worked with. I just knew he would be in my life forever. I didn’t know what capacity that would be at the time. When the show was over, I just missed him terribly. We didn’t get together until a year later. We were both smart enough that we were wondering if the connection was just because we were working together. But it was real.”
