WACO, Texas (KWTX) Headline-making Hollywood couple Kirsten Dunst, 37, and fiancée Jesse Plemons, 31, caught some patrons by surprise Saturday when they dropped in for a drink at Truelove Bar at 414 Franklin Ave., in Waco, including aspiring local actress Aundrea Stevens.

“Meeting both of them was an amazing experience,” Stevens said.

“It’s not just every day you get to walk into Truelove and see two actors just sitting there willing to talk and laugh with you.”

Dunst is an Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated A-lister who has starred in everything from “Spiderman” to “Jumanji” and Plemons is best known for his breakout role as Landry Clarke in the NBC drama series “Friday Night Lights,” in which he was the only primary character who had ever actually played football.

The two were apparently in Central Texas to visit relatives in Mart, where Plemons grew up and attended high school until he started to receive more acting jobs and had to shift to an online program to earn his degree.

Dunst and Plemons met in 2016 on the FX series “Fargo,” in which they played a married couple.

In May 2018 Dunst gave birth to their first child, Ennis Howard Plemons.

On Saturday the two also dined down the street at Milo All Day at 1020 Franklin Ave.

Stevens, who’s been an actress and dancer since she was 4, has performed in musicals, toured with the Dallas Dance Theatre and has landed roles in several commercials.

She spotted the couple at Truelove and approached them to say hello.

“Both actors were very sweet,” Stevens said.

“They even introduced themselves and asked how we were doing. We talked briefly and they agreed to take a picture with us before leaving.”
