Kirsten Dunst Ate Pizza And Grilled Cheese To Prep For 'Fargo' Role

The Huffington Post The Huffington Post 14/10/2015 Joe Satran

In Sofia Coppola's "Marie Antoinette," Kirsten Dunst played someone who allegedly said, "Let them eat cake." But when she was preparing for her role as Midwestern beautician Peggy Blumquist in "Fargo" Season 2, she let herself eat pretty much whatever she wanted. 

The actress appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on Monday to talk about gaining weight for the FX show. She admitted she indulged in a lot of pizza and grilled cheese. 

"I just had different cheeses and breads together," Dunst explained. "And now I'm like, 'Yeah, I gained weight for this role.' But really, I just sat in my bed and watched 'Friday Night Lights' and like, ate." 

It's a tough life, being a famous actor, huh?

"Fargo" airs Mondays on FX at 10 p.m. EST.
