Kirsten Dunst is making headlines for eating cheese and bread. That’s basically what her strategy consisted of for gaining weight for her role on the second season of FX’s Fargo, as she revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
She explained, “Well, listen. I was in Calgary, and it was cold, and so I ordered in a lot of pizza…a lot of Thai…I just had different…like grilled cheese…I just had different cheeses and breads together, and now I’m like, ‘Yeah, I gained weight for this role!’ But really I just sat in my bed, watched Friday Night Lights, and like…ate.
Also on the show, Kimmel pointed out that Dunst started acting when she was six years old, but that even before that, she was a model and appeared on the cover of a Babysitters Club book called Claudia and the Phantom Phone Calls.
The image on the book actually looks like a painting, but the baby on the cover is a picture of her.
Dunst explains, “We did a photo shoot, and then they made it look like a painting.”
Here’s a closer look at the book:
