Kirsten Dunst has got married to her Power of the Dog co-star Jesse Flemons, who she has been dating since 2015. 

The pair’s marriage was confirmed by a representative for the actress to PageSix, in a statement reading: ‘I can just confirm they got married. No other details will be given.’

Jesse, 34, and Kirsten, 40, who are parents to sons Ennis, four, and James, fourteen months,  and reportedly tied the knot on a tropical island in Jamaica.

The couple have been together since 2015 after meeting on the set of Fargo and got engaged in 2017.

They had previously revealed that would ‘call each other husband and wife’ despite their planned wedding being pushed back repeatedly due to the Covid-19 pandemic and their second child being born. 

Kirsten said in February: ‘We call each other husband and wife. But we have to get married at this point. It’s ridiculous. We just haven’t planned a wedding.

‘There was Covid, then we had another child. I didn’t want to be pregnant, get married, have a party and not be able to have fun with everybody.’

The happy couple have also previously discussed how their relationship ran parallel to their career milestones after both being nominated for an Academy Award for their roles as a struggling married couple in 1920s Montana in The Power of the Dog.

Kirsten explained: ‘So Eric Kranzler, my manager, calls me. I’m watching the feed on my phone because my kids are watching cartoons and Jesse is at work. 

‘I called Jesse, and I was the first person to tell him, and he was a little shellshocked. I mean, it’s just so crazy to be a couple and have our first nominations together. It’s like a storybook.’
