Diane Kruger: ‘I actually happen to be a big Twilight fan, I’m not embarrassed’

I included a link to this photoshoot in the links yesterday, but once I read some of the excerpts from Diane Kruger’s Flare Magazine cover interview, I wanted to cover it! I get that some of you aren’t big fans of Diane, but I like her more and more every year. She seems like a cool girl, she seems organized and smart and she’s one half of one of Hollywood’s cutest couples. Why don’t you love her?! Just kidding. Anyway, as I said yesterday, I find this photoshoot to be too cutesy and retro and it just doesn’t suit her. But the interview is more interesting:

Joshua Jackson banned her from watching Dawson’s Creek: ‘He doesn’t want me to watch his early work. He grew up in front of the camera with pimples and bloatiness.’

She loves to cook & she dragged Joshua to cooking classes: ‘We have a big garden in L.A. and we started canning jam and pickling. It sounds a little kooky, but the pickles we make are insane.’

Growing up in Germany: ‘I felt really trapped in my home town. My mum could sense it and to this day, without her trust in me, I don’t know what I would have become. People just thought I was – not turning into a prostitute, but kind of. Everyone was furious. My dad was furious. My school thought I was making the biggest mistake of my life. I knew this was not the life that was meant for me.’

Being part of the film adaptation of Stephanie Meyer’s The Host: ‘I actually happen to be a big Twilight fan, which I’m not embarrassed to say. It sort of appeals to my inner teenage girl.’

On her character in The Host: “She’s so complex. She has that Stepford Wife-y kind of niceness yet there is so much more underlying there: rage and anger.”

On her friendship with Karl Lagerfeld: I’ve known him since I move to Pars when I was 16. He’s very kind and can be very funny and ironic and silly. In difficult moments in my life when I don’t really know who to talk to, I sort of drop by his studio and he knows me well enough to pick up on weird things. He really is one of the most interesting people I’ve ever met.”

On fighting for her role in Inglourious Basterds: “Every once in a while there comes a part where you feel like it was written for you. And it wasn’t. But I felt like I really could bring something to it.

On valuing Joshua Jackson’s career input: “Nobody knows me better than he does. He knows exactly when I’m faking it and when I’m being sincere.”

I think I knew that Diane was tight with Karl Lagerfeld…? She always wears Chanel and she always shows up at Chanel events, so I guess I figured there was some kind of relationship there. I guess I missed this story last year – both Joshua and Diane were quoted about living close to Karl in Paris (how many homes do they have?) and Diane said, “Karl bizarrely loves Josh… Before he asks how I am, he would ask how Josh is.” That’s adorable. Even Karl loves Joshua! As for Diane being kind of Twihardy… well, I forgive her. She’s dating Pacey, for the love of God. Let her be a Twihard.

    She is a very pretty woman but totally unremarkable and forgettable as an actress.

  2. Faye says:

    Not a Twilight fan at all, but I sort of admire her for being so open about her fandom. So often you see models or celebs talking about certain cultural icons or pursuits they allegedly admire and I can’t help thinking, yeah, you can barely speak one sentence in an articulate manner — I’m so sure you’re into X/Y/Z! I think it’s cute and sweet that she’s honest about being a Twilight fangirl.

    She is also very, very pretty, but I don’t like this photoshoot. It’s too on-point – there’s no irony or fun details to detract from the 50′s-housewife dress-up.

  3. marie says:

    she’s pretty but those pictures seem pretty plain, except for the cat which is awesome.

    also, when she’s talking about gardening/pickling all I could think about was that blind item, that was them right?

  4. pfeiffer87 says:

    In that picture with the green/bluey dress she actually looks a bit podgy – how on earth is that possible?? Unflattering photoshoot.

  5. Larissa says:

    So she is a Twilight’s fan but never watched Dawson’s Creek back in the day? I mean, what world are we living in????

  6. Jackie Jormp Jomp (formerly Zelda) says:

    I love her. She seems so cool and I love her style. Does NO ONE else here have a crush on her?

    ETA–this photo shoot is blergh, beyond the actual cover shot.

  7. allons-y alonso says:

    I must admit, I do have a soft spot for Diane Kruger. Maybe it’s because we share a birthday :p

  8. only1shmoo says:

    Diane, you’re lovely, but as for the ‘Twihard’ business — there’s no need to be embarrassed, many people will already feel plenty of embarrassment for you after that comment….Wait, why am I addressing her directly, and in a post that she probably won’t read? Ah, nevermind.

  9. Miss so and so says:

    I think she is absolutely gorgeous. I like the retro look…

  10. jinni says:

    She looks more like Grace Kelly than Kidman, why wasn’t she given the role?

    • Gemini08 says:

      I like Diane Kruger but playing Grace Kelly isn’t just about looks. Diane is an okay actress but she is NO Nicole Kidman!

      • jinni says:

        I agree that Kidman is a much better actress than Diane. I just feel that since she’s messed with her face so much people can’t concentrate on her performances anymore, but instead are looking for whether or not her forehead moves, which is why I think they should have gone with some else for the role. Plus the fact that Diane looks more like Kelly would probably help make up for her not so strong acting/ make her performance more believeable.

    • Lucy says:

      Best idea I have heard all day, she would have made a wonderful Grace Kelly. Nicole is too old now and has had too much plastic surgery to really be Grace. Naomi Watts would have been a better Grace too. I love Diane though and think she is so pretty and underrated.

  11. Shy says:

    I kind of didn’t understand it at first and then I remembered that she is in Host.

    She promottes Stephanie Meyer’s The Host. Of course she will kiss ass Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight.

    • Hoya_chick says:

      This is what I came here to say. She is just being diplomatic. What is she suppose to say? She hates it? Lol she is going to be in the next Stephanie Meyer abomination. Yuck.

      I think they have homes in Paris, LA and Canada (Vancouver?) I’m very jelly.

  12. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I already commented on the links thread yesterday, but this photo shoot is AWFUL.

    I wanna have a garden with Josh Jackson :(
    We would make pickles, better pickles than he and Diane made.
    Then we’ll bone our brains out….

  13. Harpreet says:

    I think she didn’t like living with Josh in Vancouver during his time on Fringe.

  14. DeltaJuliet says:

    I think she’s gorgeous but I always get her confused with Naomi Watts.

  15. Gemini08 says:

    I love Joshua Jackson (Pacey!)and they seem like a cute couple that is really in love with each other.

  16. Tig says:

    Just watched “Farewell My Queen”- thought Diane was great in it, and she looked beautiful in the costumes- plus, it was in French!

    Honestly, so what if she likes “twilight”? Watch “People vs George Lucas”- you will never think Twi fans are the nuttiest- I promise!

  17. Quinn says:

    “Every once in a while there comes a part where you feel like it was written for you. And it wasn’t. But I felt like I really could bring something to it.” This quote is so wonderfully lacking in an obnoxious sense of entitlement, especially since I thought she was really pretty great in “Inglourious Basterds.” Okay whatever I love her, the end.

  18. Chrissie says:

    Diane is my #1 girl crush. I want to be her.

  19. Meggin says:

    I don’t get her appeal at all: she just seems boring to me and like she has him whipped. Definitely not one of my favorite Hollywood couples but hey, I’m in the minority! ;)

  20. Caitlin says:

    He does not want her too see DC because she will see how much chemistry he had with Katie and she’l become a pacey /joey shipper or even better a katie/josh shipper! … Thats my inner fan girl coming out.

    • CF98 says:

      LOL she’s actually met Katie in the past but lets be real that’s the real reason why she doesn’t want to watch.

      • rené says:

        Oh, please! Diane is not the jealous type at all.
        I’ve seen diane and joshua at an event, it was with hall berry hosting the event and katie holmes was there too. Diane and
        joshua stopped and waved and smiled at katie. It was on video.

        PLUS: joshua has announced on national television that katie holmes have made contact with him and he seemed very pleased with it.

        Diane also still talks about her ex-husband, and she still loves him. He was one of the most important men in her life. They are still good friends.

        So neither Joshua or Diane are the jealous types.

        Some are just not into dawson’s creek thats all!!

  21. daz says:

    Karl is a certified c**t.
    I can’t imagine him asking “how is Josh ?.
    More like “how it that TV boyfriend of yours doing, whats his name again ?

  22. Lauren says:

    This woman is so damn beautiful! Like so classically beautiful that I look at her and think of Grace Kelly almost. Her eyes are so beautiful. I am a bit jealous only because I wish I could such a flawless face like that. I really love Diane and I haven’t ever been blown away by her movie performances but I must say she impressed me in ‘Farewell my Queen’. Her take on Maria Antoinette was enthralling. She acts better in non english speaking film roles I think.

  23. CF98 says:

    To answer rene here….

    Sure there are people that don’t care for DC but she’s talking about how Josh doesn’t want her to watch DC.

    I mean she didn’t say that Mighty Ducks was banned(and he was on the verge of being a teenager when that was on)

    If that’s okay what’s the difference between that and DC?

    One involves his ex GF and their on screen love story.

  24. Caitlin Bruce says:

    Well actually there was reports that SHE was jealous of his new friendship with Katie after her divorce , just cause you say a video of the two of them does not mean you know any intimate details about them neither do I , that’s why I was saying it was my inner da girl coming out. Well dawsons creek was a huge part of his life so you would think she would have seen the finale at least.

  25. Caitlin Bruce says:

Well dawsons creek was a huge part of his life so you would think she would have seen the finale at least.

    I like Diane too and it might be because she doesn’t open her mouth all the time so no over exposure there. Also, Josh happens to be super hot. I used to not think so and when they got together I thought it was sweet that this elegent beauty was dating this homey type of guy but in the last year or so he is smoking. I also love his series on the Science Channel. I haven’t seen much of Diane’s work but I love her fashion.

  28. Caitlin Bruce says:

    I never said once that she was jealous I said he most likely did not want her too see DC because they had so much chemistry , would you want to see your partner on a tv show with his ex gf if they had tons of chemistry? I know I wouldn’t!

  29. silver says:

    this is a perfect example of when a celebrity I admire & think is sophisticated & high class opens up their mouth & totally proves me wrong. this is also why I’m glad that most A and B+ stars don’t have twitter accounts

  30. Adrien says:

    She has the best legs in showbiz – not muscular, not thin – they’re super sexy.

  31. Sparkly says:

    I actually really like this photoshoot. My first thought was, “Whoa, go Canada! You don’t have to be naked to be on the cover.” Very refreshing.
