Kirsten Dunst hasn't had "time" to get married.

The 39-year-old actress has been in a relationship with Jesse Plemons - the father of her sons Ennis, three, and James, six months - since 2015 and although she would tie the knot "tomorrow" if she could, the couple want to wait to have a big celebration with their loved ones.

She said: “I would marry him tomorrow. We want a proper wedding, we just haven’t had the time. And I wanted to have fun at my wedding and not pay for everyone else to celebrate while I am pregnant and waddling down the aisle.”

The couple met when they played a married couple in 'Fargo', and although Kirsten felt an "immediate soul connection" with the 'Breaking Bad' actor, she insisted it wasn't love at first sight.

She told Sunday Times Style magazine: “I didn’t think love right away. Although one of my best friends told me that I’d said to her, after about two weeks of knowing him, ‘I will know him for the rest of my life.’ There was an immediate soul connection.”

Both Kirsten and Jesse began their careers when they were just three years old and the 'Power of the Dog' actress admitted their own mothers are already desperate to get Ennis to follow in their footsteps, although she insisted it isn't something she'll be forcing him into.

Kirsten said: “I mean, I get it. If he wants to try and it’s natural, like if Sofia [Coppola] was doing something, why not?

"I am not going to take him on auditions, although both Jesse’s and my mother are dying to take him out.

"It’s what my mum did with me and what Jesse’s mum did with him. We won’t let them. We joke about it, like, ‘You guys should start a children’s agency.’ And they’re like, ‘But he has the dimples — this kid would kill it at commercials!’ "

The 'Virgin Suicides' actress never felt like she "missed out" on an ordinary childhood, despite her own work schedule.

She said: "I always went to normal schools, I never missed out on anything — friends’ birthdays, Halloween, prom. I didn’t feel Shirley Temple’d. It was really fun.”
