During the ceremony, Plemons gushed over the Bring It On actress and recalled the very first time he laid eyes on Dunst.
“I don’t often remember every detail about meeting someone. But I was standing in line at LAX stocking up on the essentials—Us Weekly, Entertainment Weekly,” he said. “And out of nowhere from behind I hear a voice call my name. And I turn to see Kirsten. Immediately without too many words being exchanged I looked into her eyes and saw the beautiful, sweet, unguarded, welcoming human being that she is. And it truly was in an instant.”
Plemons concluded his speech with a heartfelt message, adding, “Seeing the kind of mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend and cohort you are is why I and all of your friends and everyone else are here today and why we all love you. It’s for the incredibly generous and amazing person that you are.”
And sure, it took 15 months for the couple to introduce little Ennis, but it was well worth the wait.
