Kirsten Caroline Dunst like several other actors began her career as a toddler. She was already modelling and appearing in commercials at the age of 3. By 6, Dunst made her feature film debut and her career gradually took off from there. A few years after the start of her professional career, Kirsten was already multiple-time nominee for her exceptional performance in Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (1994).
Date of Birth: April 30, 1982
Zodiac Sign: Taurus
She would forever be remembered for bringing to life the much-loved comic book character, Mary Jane Watson. Dunst had to dye her hair to play Peter Parker’s spunky love interest and she reprised her roles in the Spider-Man trilogy (2002 – 2007). She is also known for her work on a number of smaller romantic roles but in all, Kirsten remains a gifted actress. Read on to know more about this philanthropist and mother-of-one.
Inez Dunst (nee Rupprecht) (mother)
Kirsten’s parents divorced in 1995 and after the split, Kirsten and her brother were raised by their mom. Inez was a former Lufthansa flight attendant, artist and one-time gallery owner.
Dunst explained in an interview how her mother made sure she went to normal schools and participate in prom or field trips and other school activities so she has a normal childhood despite her fastly-growing public status.
Klaus Dunst (father)
He is majorly known as the father of the skilled thespian and also worked as a medical service executive. He always remained in close contact with his daughter even after the 1995 divorce. He is in support of his daughter’s relationship with Jesse and it even seems like Plemons went traditional and approached Klaus before asking for Kirsten’s hand.
Christian Dunst (younger brother from same parents)
Date of Birth: 1987
Christian is the only sibling to the Hidden Figures (2007) actress. Very little is known about him other than he is close with his sister and apparently inherited the same good looks that she did. He lives in Toluca Lake, California.
Jesse Plemons (partner)
Duration of Relationship: 2016 till present
Date of Birth: April 2, 1988
Zodiac Sign: Aries
Both actors met in 2015 on the set of the second season of the FX anthology drama Fargo (2014 – present) but were not immediately smitten by each other. Jesse says he considered working with Kirsten a gift as he had admired her work for a long time. As expected, he was super excited to not only meet her in person but also work closely with her. They started off as friends and as the months went by, things got pretty heated.
Dunst had just ended her 4-year relationship with Garret Hedlund and by May 2016 was seen kissing her fellow co-star. Both lovers became engaged in January 2017 and welcomed their first child in 2018 but are yet to walk down the aisle together.
Ennis Howard Plemons (son with Jesse Plemons)
Date of Birth: May 3, 2018
Zodiac Sign: Taurus
Ennis is the only son to the Melancholia (2011) star. In December 2017, Plemons and his on-screen high school sweetheart announced that they were expecting a baby and in May this cute bundle of joy arrived. He is just some weeks old and his parents are yet to get over the excitement of his arrival.
The famed actress mentioned once that she wishes to have two children for sure so it means we’ll be expecting another addition to the family in the nearest future. She’s putting her directional career on hold for now as she says it’s time to “have babies and chill”.
