Jesse Plemons DENIES taking Ozempic for shock body transformation – and reveals his surprising weight loss secret

Jesse Plemons has denied taking Ozempic after rumors swirled when he unveiled his dramatically slimmer physique.

The Power of the Dog star, 36, who is married to actress Kirsten Dunst, 42, said it was ‘unfortunate’ that he had lost weight when Ozempic began to be used widely as a weight loss tool.

He told the LA Times: ‘It’s really unfortunate that I decided to get healthy when everyone decided to take Ozempic. It doesn’t matter. Everyone’s going to think I took Ozempic anyways. 

‘Several people talked to me about intermittent fasting and I just gave it a shot and [was] surprised at how quickly it was effective. 

Referring to his role in Civil War alongside Dunst, he said: ‘There was a part that I did that in my mind I could not imagine him as the size that I was. I lost a little bit before I did that part.

‘And then felt like I was in the rhythm, I was feeling better, and something shifted in my head. I just sort of got a handle on it.’

Kirsten and Jesse met while playing an onscreen couple in the FX series Fargo in 2014. They became a real-life couple in 2016.

Jesse popped the question in 2017 and they welcomed their first child, son Ennis, five, the following year.

Kirsten gave birth to their second son James, two, in 2021.

The couple finally tied the knot in Jamaica in 2022.

Last month, Kirsten gushed over hers and Jesse’s romantic and creative connection.

‘Because we fell in love on a set, we fell in love creatively first. I think we’ll always come back to that, in a very not-involving-our-real-life way,’ she told Marie Claire.

They played a couple again in Jane Campion’s acclaimed gay western The Power Of The Dog (2021), which netted Oscar nominations for both Jesse and Kirsten.

In spite of the professional connection the share, Kirsten revealed that ‘we don’t talk to each other on set’ and they leave each other ‘alone.’

Notwithstanding, the Marie Antoinette actress gushed: ‘I love working with him. What’s nice is that we trust each other so much.’

She recalled: ‘He sent me a scene last night of this miniseries he’s working on to get my opinion. If I’m having a hard time deciding on something, I’ll have him read it. I trust his opinion more than anyone, and he cares about me more than anyone.’

Kirsten teased with a laugh that she and Jesse ‘hate the same things,’ though she declined to provide any details to the public.
