Jesse, 36, showed off his much slimmer frame in a black suit with a white undershirt as he attended the New York City premiere.

His chiseled face and longer hair made the Friday Night Lights star appear more youthful as he smiled next to Kirsten, who dazzled in yellow.

Kirsten, who met her husband on the set of the FX series Fargo, opted for a satin gown with a subtle floral design.

The two tied the knot in July 2022, just before Jesse started shocking fans with his drastic weight transformation.

Jesse made a splash at this year’s Oscars in March, where people made note of his slimmer figure and even asked, “Where’s the rest of him?”

Others commented on how he looked “so different” than in the past.


Naturally, some fans resorted to his potential use of the weight loss drug, Ozempic, which has taken over Hollywood in recent months.

“That Ozempic hitting our man way too hard,” a person wrote on a social media post of him at the awards.

“Ozempic bringing him back to his breaking bad days,” a second wrote, while a third asked, “Jesse on that Ozempic?”

Jesse has responded to the claims and recently cleared the air about his weight loss, giving credit to intermittent fasting.

“It’s really unfortunate that I decided to get healthy when everyone decided to take Ozempic,” Jesse said in a Los Angeles Times interview.

“It doesn’t matter, everyone’s going to think I took Ozempic anyways,” he added.


Some friends advised Jesse to try intermittent fasting, an eating plan that involves only consuming calories for a shortened period of time.

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