Diane Kruger wants to have Joshua Jackson’s babies & raise them in Paris


Generally speaking, Diane Kruger is pretty boring. She’s made a few good movies, and many not-so-great movies. She’s not really a world-class actress, but she’s serviceable and pretty, and she seems reasonably down-to-earth. The only times I’ve ever been excited by Diane were: 1) when she was rumored to be maybe-boning Brad Pitt when they worked on Inglourious Basterds, 2) when she wears something totally gorgeous or totally funky on the red carpet, as she is one of the “fashion girls” and 3) when she’s gushing about her boyfriend of many years, Joshua Jackson. Joshua and Diane aren’t really a big A-list couple, but they are solid B-list, maybe even B+. And I’ve always wondered about them – do they get really hot for each other? What’s their home life like? Does her accent ever piss him off? Well, as it turns out, Diane has no problem talking about Josh and their future plans (hint: babies!). She was interviewed in The Daily Mail over the weekend, and her quotes are very interesting (full Mail piece here):

[In] a celebrity-obsessed world that loves two for the price of one, it cannot be denied that her relationship with Joshua Jackson has done much to raise her profile. We meet at the beginning of Josh’s annual three-month break from Fringe – which is filmed in Vancouver – and the couple are about to take off on a ‘European tour’ that is clearly preoccupying Diane. The couple, who met in 2006, rarely have the opportunity to spend much time together. They live, she says, like ‘gypsies’ between a rented flat in Vancouver, her home in Paris and an apartment in LA.

‘He is in Vancouver nine months of the year, and then I am away making movies, so there are long periods when we don’t see each other and it’s hard. I am taking time off work because we promised each other this period together.’

‘[The paparazzi] do take pictures of us when we are in New York or LA, but it doesn’t bother us because we don’t have super-interesting lives for them. We don’t go out a lot and I certainly don’t go to clubs without any underwear on. We love the outdoors, we love cycling and hiking and we are both very green – not pursuits that the paparazzi tend to be interested in.’

Paris remains her favourite city and the place she thinks of as ‘home’ (she has an apartment close to her mentor Karl Lagerfeld). Indeed, for all her transatlantic gloss, she still considers herself to be European.

‘I see myself raising my children in Europe, probably in Paris. Josh loves Paris and he is cool with that, but we will see what happens when we get there – or if we get there.’

However close they are, there will not, she says, be a wedding. Diane’s marriage in 2001 – to actor/director Guillaume Canet, which ended in 2006 (he is now with Marion Cotillard) – has left her disillusioned about what she believes is ‘just a piece of paper’.

‘Because I was married I know that, no matter what paper you sign, if you want out, you get out. But that doesn’t mean I don’t believe in commitment. I think commitment is very important, particularly for me. I am a better person when I let myself have the time for romance and for love. I think for too many years I actually let that slide,’ she says, a little pensively.

She’s highly domestic (she regards ironing as therapy), loves to cook and has a vast library of cookbooks, counting Jamie Oliver as one of her favourite chefs.

‘Two weeks ago I did an eight-hour lamb. We were in LA and we had friends over on a Sunday and the lamb was in the oven and we could smell it all day – it was great. I love food.’

Diane doesn’t exactly look as if she loves food – with her slender 5ft 7in frame elongated by those shoes, she appears pretty close to a size zero, but vehemently denies it. ‘I am not size zero – I wish! I am a 2 [British size 6] or sometimes a 4 [8] – it depends. If I spend too long in Germany and eat too many cakes and schnitzel my weight goes up. But I don’t obsess about it any more. I just know I’ve got to watch it when my pants feel too tight.’

[From The Daily Mail]

Aw… she sounds nice. Surprisingly normal. She also talks about her obsession with gigantic heels, and how Josh always ends up half-carrying her through events because she can’t walk. I’d venture a guess in saying that Josh and Diane are for real, and they’re totally in love. Of course, I thought that about Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel, and now everyone is yelling at me, saying that he’s a big cheater. So maybe I’m bad at reading relationships today. Whatever.

    France is becoming so bigoted and racist. It may be hard to believe for tourists and people with a head full of nice clichés.
    I am ashamed. If I had kids I would bring them anywhere else but I would not stay here.

    If you don’t believe me you look it up (with the Roms to begin with).

  2. Brooke says:

    My absolute favorite couple. Love them! Can’t wait for little Jackson-Kruger babies 🙂

  3. buckley says:

    Ha Kaiser
    Sorry to do this to you but JJ is most definitely a cheater.

  4. Jackson says:

    I love JJ!!! And do not say he is a cheater!!!! :((((

  5. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    They certainly make an adorable couple. I wish them all the best.

  6. Gwen says:

    @buckley: Noooooo, say it ain’t so 🙁

  7. Eileen says:

    He has such a boyish face that he looks hilarious with the cravat!

  8. TQB says:

    I’d add this to the list of interesting things about her: “And I certainly don’t go to clubs without any underwear on.”

    I want to hate her because she’s talking about making babies with MY precious Joshua, but I just can’t. She seems nice, and I really like that she isn’t all dismissive of her divorce. Wish my father took his as seriously!

  9. debbie says:

    I thought she was fabulous in Inglorious bastards. Riveting!

  10. Iggles says:

    Omg! Just googled her Ex-husband, Guillaume Canet. He is hot! I’d be disillusioned after divorcing him too!

    That said, I like Diane and Josh together. I hope they eventually get married and have kids.

  11. mslewis says:

    I’ve never seen a picture of Joshua Jackson with another woman. No picture = not true, in my book!!

    I really like Diane Kruger and I think she is a very good actress. Also, she was in “Troy” with Brad Pitt years ago. If she didn’t cheat with him then why would she do it during “Basterds”? Doesn’t make sense. Besides, Angelina was with Brad the entire time he was filming that movie, unlike “Troy” when his then wife didn’t bother to visit him for nine months.

    I hope these two have babies together but I doubt it will be soon since they are apart so much. Maybe when his series is over because a TV series takes all of your time and energy.

  12. Henriette says:

    Canadian guys are The Best – JJ is definitely no Taye Diggs. But I lived in Paris for years and all my friends (French and otherwise) who had tiny children there were pissed off by the dog poop everywhere (much improved in recent decades, but still gross), litter and general rudeness and dreamed of raising their kids anywhere BUT Paris. I’d say that Vancouver would be a fabulous place for little ones.

  13. shockedandappalled says:

    buckley, if you are going to hurl accusations like that, you have to tell us what you know!

  14. malachais says:

    stunning couple 🙂

  15. Sefa says:

    LOVE LOVE LOVE. She’s one of those actors you kind of want to hate, but all the good outweighs the bad, and they make such an adorable couple.

    One of my favorite moments is when she accidentally called his cell while he was being interviewed. He was so cute when he answered and even joked when Craig Ferguson took the phone and talked to her on air.

  16. Katie says:

    Funny. I also want to have Josh Jackson’s babies and raise them in Paris. Or really where ever he deems fit.

  17. Roma says:

    I have party kissed Joshua Jackson.

    Yes, I’ve mentioned it before but come on, it’s Joshua Jackson.

    A friend worked with him on set for years and swore up and down that a cheater he is not.

  18. Obvious says:

    i’d just like to bask in their glow. they seem so happy and stable. i like happy stable couples. and as i said about the rest of the cheating losers we’ve come across-i refuse to believe it until there is truth. The pictures of Taye Diggs with a bunch of girls, also included guys in the group-looks for other pictures of the same night, and we’re friends and co workers. I refuse to believe without proof that JJ and TD are cheaters. REFUSE!

  19. jenn says:

    I’d bet even though they aren’t A lis,t their reality in Paris is way different than the dog poop Paris most see. If you have money anywhere you are is nice, even L.A.

  20. carrie says:

    who is she???

  21. RHONYC says:

    how very johnny depp of them!

  22. Jeri says:

    Good luck to them, I like them both. They seem devoted to each other & still believe in Red Carpet strolls together (Gwynnie). They don’t act like the coolest kids there (like Gwynnie did). They behave courteously to all on the carpets.

  23. Parisienne says:

    I agree with the comments on Paris – def. better places to rause children (Vancouver!). Diane Kruger comes over more sympathetic in German, similar to the Daily Mail interview – and why not!?

  24. Sally says:

    PACEY! Ahem, sorry. Love this couple.

  25. Camille says:

    I’m very ‘meh’ about this couple (kind of couldn’t care less actually), but I do like the shoes she is wearing in the top pic. Sexy. But I bet that they kill your feet after a while of wearing them though.

  26. Crash2GO2 says:

    She’s looking awfully bobble-headed.

  27. Fae says:

    Bless them, they seem like a happy couple. Always nice to see two people in love.

    Re: Paris though- ugh. Wouldn’t raise a barn there, let alone children. I’m not one of the Brits who hate France, I’ve had some lovely times over there over the years, but Paris has to be one of the filthiest, rudest places I’ve ever had the misfortune to visit. It makes London look clean and friendly, which is almost miraculous.

  28. LBees says:

    So do I Diane, so do I.

  29. Sans says:

    They are adorable. Loved her in Inglorious Bastards. I really enjoy her attitude and her boobs look great …LOL.

  30. Raven says:

    Ironing as therapy? Definitely. I was raised in a German home and, as my mother used to say, cleanliness is next to godliness. Of course, in my case, it may have skipped a generation.

  31. Maeve says:

    I sure hope Josh is the real deal after Guille cheated on Diane with Marion Cottilard for 3 years before doing the right thing and fessing up. DK deserves to be happy. She is a great gal!!!!!

  32. Madison says:

    The couple, who met in 2006, rarely have the opportunity to spend much time together.
    That’s probably why it’s lasted as long as it has, the relationship is always new and exciting, they don’t have time to get bored with each because they don’t get to see each other much. I don’t know, they seem like a nice couple, I just hope he’s not a cheater when she’s not around because they seem to spend quite a lot of time apart.

  33. lolo says:

    Same here..

  34. anon says:

    I always thought they were fused at the hip. Since that is not the case, I agree with Madison, it is no surprise they’ve lasted this long. Once they are together more often, trouble might follow.

  35. Eonyk says:

    To be honest I think if they weren’t committed and in love, it would be hard to them to have made it this far. Distance and time apart can ruin relationships, so to say that the fact that they don’t see each other is why it’s lasted this long seems odd to me. I mean, I understand where that view comes from, but I just don’t think that is the case with these two.

    When Diane and Josh are together, they live together, so it’s not as if they haven’t got that experience of each other. I think when Fringe was shooting in New York, they actually lived together very full-time, but it seems like since moving to Vancouver that’s changed a bit – whether due to her work schedule or otherwise, I’m not sure. In the past they have both spoken about how they try not to go more than 2 weeks between seeing each other, and I’ve read a few reports that place Diane flying in an out of Vancouver at least every other weekend when Josh is filming there.

    I also recall Josh once saying he flew to see Diane and they were only able to spend 48 hours together. A guy who makes a long flight just to see his girl for a couple of days sounds pretty committed to me. Josh flew to Berlin earlier this year to be with Diane on Valentines Day as well.

    They have obviously put in a lot of effort thus far to spend as much time together as they can given their hectic work schedules. Maybe it’s not as much time as they would like, but so far it’s appearing to work for them. Maybe their philosophy is that they want to work hard the next couple of years before slowing down when they decide to have children and settle more permanently in Paris (or wherever they decide). Nothing wrong with that if they are satisfied with how their relationship is working for them.

    Who knows if this relationship will last the distance, but I for one hope so.

  36. Sara says:

    I think Diane is one of the most beautiful women on Hollywood, to me she is even prettier than Angelina (beautiful too). Never thought Joshua was cute, but their is more to people than just looks:)
