Diane Kruger & Joshua Jackson had a huge fight one time before the Oscars

This is going to shock you to your very core: sometimes really cute, happy-seeming couples fight. And sometimes those fights are no big deal. OMG!!! LIES. Star Magazine (yeah…) has a funny story about just one of these terrible incidents where a couple who’ve been together for, like, five or six years actually FOUGHT. In public! With innocent people just standing around taking notes and chuckling to themselves. Does anyone else chuckle to themselves when they hear a couple fight? It’s always funny to me. Some dude will be like “Let me mansplain this you, baby doll” and she’s like “You are such an a—hole, I should have listened to my mother.” I love it when women mutter something obscene under their breath and the dude pretends like he didn’t hear his wife/girlfriend referring to him as “d—kbreath”. As for this particular fight between Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger… I’m struggling to understand what the fight was really about…

Life isn’t one big red carpet for Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger! The longtime lovers were recently seen having a heated argument at a Hollywood grocery store on Feb. 23.

“Joshua looked like he’d rolled out of bed after a night of partying,” spills an undercover Star reporter. “They spent 10 minutes arguing.”

Joshua, 34, annoyed Diane, 36, even more when he grabbed a bottle of eye drops off the shelf to aid his disheveled appearance.

“Diane yelled at him for being so disrespectful… they made a huge scene.”

Fast-forward one day, and the pair were singing a different tune while getting cozy at the Vanity Fair Oscar party in West Hollywood.

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

So, they went out partying two nights before the Oscars (probably an industry party, I would guess) and the next morning they were hung over and Diane was like “I hate you, shut up, WHY DO YOU EXIST” and Joshua was like, “Talk to the hand because you are getting on my last nerve.” And then they went out for brunch and got re-hydrated and then they spent 10 hours in bed having make up sex and then these photos happened. That’s about it.

    Diane gives great bitchface, and that, plus the whole German thing makes me think that she’s badass when it comes to an argument. Poor Pacey doesn’t stand a chance.

    • Maria says:

      the whole german thing?

      • T.Fanty says:

        The language moves in a very forceful way. I speak German, and because it is so guttural, it’s really easy to make everything sound low and contemptuous. That, with her whole stereotypical German icy blonde demeanor, makes me think that it wouldn’t be fun to be yelled at by her.

      • Joanne says:

        If you’ve read any of Diane’s interviews she has mentioned how angry she can get and when she’s angry and talks german than you need to watch out. She has mentioned that Josh knows it all too well.

      • Sisi says:

        Yeah, the german language can be very direct and emotionless, so people who have grown up thinking in that language can sound harsch, especially to ears wo are used to the more evasive english language.

        I’m Dutch, and that language is even blunter than German. Dutch people can sound very rude to English speaking people when we think we are polite. For instance: we hardly ever use polite words in our vocabulary like could, should, would, but tend to use the imperative, so using them would not always occur to us in English. We start constructing sentences with the subject, so if a Dutch person talks about himself, he probably starts every sentence with I. It seems very selfcentered to English people. It’s how we learned to think, and it can translate rather poorly. If a poster uses the same structure in every sentence, starts almost every sentence with the subject and the Verb, and many sentences start with I, 99.9% chance it’s a Dutchman :) (guilty as charged!)

        Same goes for the more temperamental spanish and the emotive French (in comparison to English) It’s how people learned to think and express themselves.

        The French language has hundreds, maybe thousands of words to describe emotion and demeanor and those words are used regularly in common communication, while German has hardly any and use them rarely. Doesn’t mean the don’t feel though XD English is somewhere inbetween. So from a language p.o.v. French and German speakers actually are polar opposites when communicating.

        I’m sure Diana Kruger sounds quite feisty when she starts uttering things impulsively to an English speaking person. In quick arguments people tend to go back to their roots. She probably would sound harsch, blunt, and cold.

        Language is fascinating. I’m reading an awesome book about it atm..

      • Addison says:

        Thanks Sisi, very informative.

      • k says:

        Sisi, Spanish is much more passive than you indicate. /Spanish Lit degree.

      • Really? says:

        Sisi, COULD i please have the name of the book you’re reading? Thanks ;-)

      • Sisi says:

        Sure thing! The book is called ‘Through the Language Glass – Why The World Looks Different In Other Languages’, by Guy Deutscher.

      • Sisi says:

        K there’s barely anything I indicated about Spanish. I hardly mentioned it in fact. I’ve got a degree in Dutch & Communication, have more knowledge about Anglo-Saxon languages than the Romance Languages which is why I talked mostly about the former.

        But the languages around the mediterranian tend to be High-context and the north European are low-context. So orth european communication centers mostly around explicit words (which is why german is analytical and quite frank), and around the mediterranean the words are less explicit and communication also factors in the communicator, so intonation and gestures and situation convey part of the message. The message is an entire package. English is a melting pot of all kinds of languages, but it is low-context. Spanish and French are high-context so I mentioned them together (because i can’t say much more about them than I did). So in comparison to English, Spanish seems more temperamental. It’s relative, so it’s not a general statement.

      • LAK says:

        Sisi – That’s a very interesting concept. And thanks for posting the book. definitely going to read it.

        I’ve grown up around the world before we finally settled in England, but I’ve always thought more about cultural differences rather than language differences in terms of the way people express themselves. Or is it a chicken and egg thing so that a less expressive language = less expressive culture?

    • JH says:

      This made me laugh! Poor Pacey is right!
      PS That outfit is perfection.

  2. JenD says:

    I really don’t know much about her – does she ever smile?

    • Christina says:

      Rarely. I know everyone here likes Diane, but I don’t see the appeal myself. She seems to spend most of her time attending ‘events’ when, going by the permanent ‘biting a lemon’ look on her face, she’d much rather be anywhere else.

      • Joanne says:

        Diane lives for these events. She has to be seen all the time. When she was doing the publicity trail for IB for instance,Diane was seen at every event they put out for IB, everywhere around the world. Diane was on the IB publicity trail for a good six months.

        Diane has two movies coming out and a tv show that has been picked up to series and two movies that are in preproduction that she is attached to. Diane will be starting to do publicity for her movie the Host as well over the next couple of weeks. She is one busy woman and she will be in the spotlight and loving it, even if she is scowling all the times in photos.

      • GoodCapon says:

        What’s wrong with attending publicity events though? Isn’t that part of her contract/s, that she has to promote her films?

      • Joanne says:

        Nothing wrong with it. Just showing how much she loves doing it, as the post I was referring to, said she always looked like she wanted to be elsewhere. Some of those events I referred to she didn’t need to go to them, but she did anyway.

      • Talie says:

        She’s a glamorous person who enjoys partying…there’s nothing wrong with that. She seems to work equally hard.

      • Christina says:


        Oh yes, I’m sure she loves being at all these posh events. I was kind of being sarcastic when I said she looks as though someone twisted her arm. It’s just that sour face she has in every single photo – yeah, it must be really tough having to attend glamourous parties, with first choice on all the latest haute couture collections. Hard life.

  3. Winnie says:

    My first time seeing these pics. Is she pregnant?

  4. Aussie girl says:

    Kaiser forgot to mention that they fought & then made up with the cucumber.

  5. tina says:

    STAR magazine? yeah, right….I don’t believe anything from this magazine.

    • CAM says:

      Seriously STAR is the worst. It’s the only media outlet/magazine that i never believe, because they literally make shit up! i don’t understand why stories from it still get reported. They’re always wrong.

  6. backwards says:

    “They spent 10 minutes arguing.”

    Wow, would hate for this witness to see my boy and I fighting. It takes us about 20 minutes to get warmed up haha.

  7. julie says:

    Well, even if it’s true, so what every couple fight. No relationsip is perfect and i always knew that Joshua can’t be with the same girl for years. This is his first real relationship. He was a manwh*re before he met diane, he was sleeping with a different girl every night. Sometimes with several girls at the same time….

    What most people don’t know about this couple is that they were together in 2006 (Josh was the one smitten over her,diane didnt wan to go out with him, but he convinced her) but diane broke it off end 2006. Then she missed him and called him, but he was on vacation and already moved on with another girl. But he did come back to her and they were together since. Diane said this herself in a french interview (youtube). My point is that joshua didnt even try to get diane back, he already went back to his flirting and sleeping with other girls.

    • Antoni says:

      Oh , i remember his reputation during the Dawson’s creek days….
      Even Lainey gossip talked about his womanizing days. I never believed Joshua was faithfull during their relationship. They see each other once in 3 weeks and a guy like him can’t stay this long without having s*x.

    • Joanne says:

      Huh, Julie? They’ve been together for nearly six and half years, coming up to seven. So, he has been with the same girl for years.

      In interviews they have said that their anniversary is Josh’s birthday in mid June, so they have been going out since June 2006. The casual dating was before that and Diane was going away to do a film and didn’t think it was going to work so she called it off, because she thought she would meet someone on the film. So, that’s probably why Josh decided to move on. After she finished the film she came back and called him up because she didn’t meet anybody on the film, and then they got back together officially. That’s in written print form in an interview.

      • CF98 says:

        I believe she meant that Josh has been monogamous with Diane all this time and I agree I don’t buy it but I’m sure they have an arrangement.

    • Roma says:

      I party kissed Joshua Jackson back in the day.

      I bring it up on every thread because f**k yah, Joshua!

    • CF98 says:

      I disagree about this being his first real relationship he’s dated other women Katie Holmes for one his former DC costar and Rosario Dawson as well.

      This is probably the longest relationship he’s had though.

  8. LSS says:

    I know I’m in the minority here but I find them totally boring. Can’t for the life of me think what movies either of them have been in for years; she’s just a clothes horse and event-attender (kind of an upscaled Kate Bosworth) and he’s just boring.

    Very judgey I know…

    • Jayna says:

      I loved her in the Unknown with Liam Neeson. Couples fight. So I find this uninteresting anyway. I only find it interesting when it’s a couole that spout off all the time about their perfect relationship.

    • bns says:

      I agree. And “upscaled Kate Bosworth” is spot on.

      • Christina says:

        Me too, and I said as much in my post above. Diane is more of a fashionista than an actress. And while she’s beautiful and makes some great fashion choices, she has no charisma or charm. Doesn’t help that she always looked as though someone just farted in the immediate vicinity.

    • scarlett says:

      I actually find them boring too…like watching paint dry boring. I have never gotten the appeal of Diane Kruger. I keep imagining that she has cold feet and hands…so weird.

    • sharon says:

      Joshua Is anything but boring. Just watch his interviews and very smart too, if i may add. Diane is a very respected actress, especially in France. She was a judge at Cannes last year and she hosted the ceremony a couple years ago. You don’t give this special and huge honor to just anyone. And she is one of the best paid actresses in France.

      • Christina says:

        Wasn’t Natalie Portman a judge at Cannes? If so, clearly they don’t demand that their judges have any great acting credentials.

      • Guardian says:

        she never won the Palme d’Or or cesar, or any major award in europe or in American, it shows that she’s a mediocre actress

  9. Brittney says:

    This makes me like them more, somehow. I feel you, Josh; there are bottles of eye-drops in my desk at work, my purse, my car, my kitchen…

    “Does anyone else chuckle to themselves when they hear a couple fight? It’s always funny to me.”

    Honestly, half the time I’m chuckling in my head during MY fights with my boyfriend. Sometimes you just can’t not hear the clichés coming out of your own mouth.

  10. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    Now Joshua can date Diane Lane – who can actually move her face.

  11. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I doubt it was a real fight, probably a “play fight” where you pretend to be *REALLY MAD* about something but really you’re just playing around (or am I the only one that does that?).

    Anyway, it’s all just foreplay for these two crazy kids.

  12. ladybert62 says:

    I cannot get past that dress – it hurts my eyes and head and now I have a migraine.

  13. opposite do attract says:

    I find these couple very fascinating.
    The ice-queen and the goofball; so different from each other, but yet they have fallen madly in love with each other.

  14. j.eyre says:

    “Why do you even exist.” – I a, going to go pick a fight with Mr. R right now just so I can use this.

  15. HA says:

    Shocker! — longtime couples fight.

    I get the impression that this relationship is not precisely monogamous, but at the end of the day they seem to always wind up together. I wouldn’t be surprised if they were still doing red carpets and arguing in grocery stores (along with other, ahem, extracurriculars) 10 years from now after many other celeb couples have blown through their actual marriages. Scratch the surface of any longterm relationship, and you will find it is fundamentally odd.

    • Original A says:

      Agree. I think they are truly in love but I doubt they are a traditional couple in terms of monogamy considering the amount of time they spend apart.

  16. d says:

    Hmmmm, to me, she looks distant in those photos.

  17. piches says:

    STAR magazine is NOT a believable magazine.

    They are just telling lies.

    If it was such a “big fight”, where are
    the pictures. Diane and Josh are constantly followed by the paps, but they could not take pictures of them “fighting”, please….I call it bullsh*t.

  18. lambchops says:

    This site always covers these two and I guess I just don’t get it, but they (her in particular) just seem so dry and blah.

  19. OhDear says:

    She looks a bit like Sarah Jessica Parker in the first photo.

    Also, glad that they’re in a happy and healthy relationship, but to quote Lainey – “why [them]?”

  20. Elise says:

    This story is funny, but ridiculous. They weren’t even in L.A. on that Friday, they were in San Francisco at a winery and were spotted at various places around the city until they flew back for the Oscar parties.

  21. Joanne says:

    Oh really, Elise. Classic. Haha.

  22. kay says:

    omg i saw the headline for this story and was like NOOOO. i get way too invested in these people’s relationships. damn you will and amy

  23. CF98 says:

    Eh as a couple they do nothing for me but this isn’t a big deal couples fight and I’m sure that they have an open relationship like most couples in Hollywood do. As long as it isn’t publically humiliating its not an issue.

    There have been too many cheating scandals for me to think otherwise in their industry.

  24. Selenie says:

    His face is not as scrunchy as it was when he was young.

  25. just gossip says:

    That’s some dumbass tabloid= Star Magazine

    Was it not the same Magazine who tried to make-a-story a couple of years ago, suggesting that Diane Kruger and Brad Pitt, working together on Inglorious Basterds, were having an affair. Obviously the story did not stick.

    And neither will these!

  26. EscapedConvent says:

    So….he went for a bottle of eye drops (the fiend!) & she started screaming at him?

    Yes. Very believable. ;-)
