Diane Kruger & Joshua Jackson make their first loved-up appearance in months


Yesterday, we covered the photos from the amfAR gala at NYFW. Diane Kruger attended the event without Joshua Jackson, and I used that opportunity to speculate about the state of their relationship following the December reports that Diane may have cheated on Joshua with Norman Reedus – Reedus and Kruger had been seen at a NYC dive bar together looking loved up and coupled up, all while Joshua was overseas.

Well… it looks like Joshua and Diane are still together, even though they weren’t seen together in something like three or four months. He’s appearing on Broadway in the play Smart People, and there was a big opening night event last night. Joshua posed with his castmates, he posed solo, and he posed with Diane Kruger, who seemed to be there to support him. So, they’re still happening. And is it wrong to think that Diane looks a bit smug about it? Like, “Oh, yeah, I can do whatever I want and my man still loves me, hahaha, I got Pacey 4 LIFE.” Still, I’m glad that they’re not done. Some people suspect that they actually have an open relationship. It wouldn’t surprise me.

Also: I absolutely adore Diane’s tuxedo. She looks amazing.

    Nice to see them together.
    Not a fan of Jackson’s hair.

    • ginger says:

      According to blindgossip Jackson/Kruger togetherness is fake:

      • Cupcake says:

        They really look genuine in these pics though. Don’t ya think?

      • Bridget says:

        Blind Gossip is notoriously unreliable. It’s only one step above CDAN.

      • ginger says:

        Bridget, every gossip site is “unreliable” (including celebitchy.com. ; )

      • Please says:

        and yet, you want to know more about ‘the thing’ from some random commenter from a gossip site.


      • ginger says:

        Oh, Please, maybe you know about the “thing” that Josh had with his Fringe costar? ; )

      • Please says:

        Whatever the anwser is, it’s just gossip and gossip is like every gossip site: “unreliable”
        , right ginger?
        so why do you insist to know more about “the thing”.

        Or do you want to pick and chose the truth according to your vision/mind?

      • Bridget says:

        @ginger: that’s actually an interesting discussion, because I happen to disagree there. Obviously, we know that Blind Items by definition are meant to be taken with a grain of salt, but celebrity gossip in general, while a ‘fluffy’ subject, is still based on logical trains of thought and the study of human behavior. While some of it is supposition, a great deal of what we talk about is backed up by photos and hard evidence. Whereas the site Blind Gossip has consistently proven itself to be unreliable. Not all sources are equal.

      • ginger says:

        Please: “Truth”? LOL This is a very popular celebrity gossip site. I know that I don´t get the truth here. i just want to hear that gossip about Josh and his Fringe costar.

        Bridget, have you read Lainey Gossip´ take on Josh&Diane´s situation?

      • Bridget says:

        Not really. But my own take: there were so many eyewitnesses of Diane and Norman, it’s not even a question that they hooked up in public. So the real question is, do they subscribe to the same notion of traditional fidelity that us ‘normals’ do? And if they don’t, is it still an issue that she got caught so publicly? Those two have been together for so long, and with jobs that involve them being separated for long periods of time, that I sincerely wonder if what made them work as a couple was that they didn’t strictly adhere to our idea of monogamy. After all, she and Reedus don’t seem to have hooked up until Joshua was a half a world away.

      • ginger says:

        I think there was never monogamy in this relationship.
        My take: no matter how many cute pictures of them together will be released from now on – they are done. Because what kept them together – the perfect couple image- was destroyed by this scandal.

      • Bridget says:

        I don’t know about that. They have no kids, aren’t trying to nurture fledgling careers/new ventures, and they’re not tied together for an extended period of time with a franchise. Aside from their movie that’s coming out, there’s not a ton of professional obligation for these two to stay together. Either way, these pictures aren’t going to give much context; it was always going to be stressful, because I would guess Diane and Joshua have a lot of questions being lobbed at them from behind the cameras and are just trying to get through that red carpet.

    • ginger says:

      Bridget, you said that it’s not even a question that Diane and Reedus hooked up in public. Most people think that it happened (the media made sure that everyone´s heard about this scandal).
      And most people won´t believe Josh&Diane´s “we are so in love”- act anymore.

      If Josh will say in interviews that Diane is “the one”, the reaction he´ll get from everyone will be “Dude, didn´t she cheat on you in public?”
      The damage is done. No lies or staged pictures on RadarOnline‎ will ever fix it. Their togetherness is PR.

  2. Hudson Girl says:

    I really like him. But, why has his face aged 5 years in a few months? Alcohol?

    • Em says:

      I was going to say that Josh lost his mojo 🙁

    • InvaderTak says:

      Are we sure these aren’t their body doubles? They both look off.

    • Don't kill me I'm French says:

      He looks like the son of Michel Gondry and Ed Norton here

    • Lama says:

      I think it’s the lack of facial hair, which I’m guessing is gone for the play. He is way hotter with that scruff.

    • Rose says:

      Josh looks different without the beard but he’s also lost a lot of weight in his face. He started to trim down towards the end of last year.

      • s says:

        maybe he was depressed/not eating/hitting the bottle cause she was cheating?

      • Rose says:

        He’s been working constantly for awhile now. He obviously had a break at Christmas, but they started rehearsals for the play straight after and he’s been doing the play schedule since then. The long hair doesn’t help him either but it’s the clean shaven face for the play that makes him look quite different.

  3. tracking says:

    Those shoes with the tux are killer. He looks much better with facial hair imo.

    • chaine says:

      yeah, i agree. he looks quite attractive with the beard in “The Affair.” and i say that as someone who is usually repulsed by facial hair.

  4. mila says:

    both look odd. he has aged a lot since the last we saw him.

  5. Boston Green Eyes says:

    I like Diane a lot. Had to google Joshua Jackson. God, you girls are so way ahead of me in the Celebrity thing.

    • vauvert says:

      I fell in love with him on Fringe. He was just wonderful, and I still miss that show like crazy. John Noble should have won awards for it…. Oh well.
      Diane looks great in the tux, love the shoes but her hair is a mess.
      Maybe they worked things out, maybe they have an open relationship (hence the no marriage, no kids lifestyle), but they seem happy together. If it works for them, great.

    • Liv says:

      Don’t tell me you don’t know Joshua Jackson! Pacey?? Dawson’s CreeK? Gosh, I feel old. 😉

  6. Goneblank says:

    I hope they work it out, they always seemed like such a happy solid couple. She looks uncomfortable and stressed in these photos though. Maybe just anticipating that whatever happened with reedus might come up again publicly.

  7. Brea says:

    I need that tuxedo in my life.

  8. Eva says:

    Yesss love them together! I don’t know if it’s the lighting or what but they both look exhausted. I hope everything is ok.

  9. Vida says:

    He must be a very forgiving fool and they both look terrible. Jackson looks like he has aged 10 years.

  10. Patricia says:

    I totally agree with everyone saying he looks aged and tired, and even like he has some booze-bloat in the face.
    She looked pretty exhausted and run down at her last appearance, too. Maybe they are going through an on-off breakup thing. That is an exhausting thing to go through, speaking from experience. It’s hard to accept when a relationship is really over.

  11. GlimmerBunny says:

    Yay! I love them separately but even more together!

  12. Lorelei says:

    He looks…weird

  13. Linday says:

    Damn who knew shaving could make someone look that bad?

  14. Margo S. says:

    I’ve said it before. I’ve heard that they do have an open relationship. He had a thing going with his costar on Fringe. It works for some people. Good for them! They are both so friggin cute.

    • ginger says:

      Josh had a thing going with his costar on Fringe? What?!? Who was it?

    • Ethelreda says:

      I wouldn’t be surprised if they have an open relationship. I suspect many, if not most, Hollywood couples do. However, usually in ‘arrangements’ of this sort, the couple agree to be discreet about their flings, and this would be particularly important when both partners are well-known.

      Going by the body language in these pics, he’s more into her than the reverse. It might just be these pictures, but while he is looking at her, she’s got her head turned away in every one.

    • Bridget says:

      With these two especially, I totally buy that they have an open relationship. But also that it was embarrassing for her to be caught like that.

      As an aside, I think it’s interesting how everyone automatically expects all Hollywood relationships to adhere to traditional notions of fidelity. We’re talking about folks who have jobs that involve a lot of travel and long weeks/months apart, surrounded by beautiful people.

    • Sonya says:

      They have an open relationship. He’s a known cheater. He is a ladies man.

      Joshua had a thing with both of his THE AFFAIR co-stars: Ruth Wilson and
      Catalina Sandino Moreno.

      They are both beautiful women, so i don’t blame him.

      • ginger says:

        And Josh´s Fringe costar? Was it a one-night thing or a 5 years affair?

      • Ethelreda says:

        “They have an open relationship. He’s a known cheater.”

        That’s a contradiction. If they do indeed have an open relationship, then it’s not cheating.

      • ginger says:

        Can nobody tell me what was the “thing” Josh had with his Fringe costar?

      • vauvert says:

        For a “known” cheater it is pretty surprising how there is no evidence of it. Anna Torv, his Fringe costar, got engaged, married and divorced after a year while filming Fringe. I never heard that she had a thing with Josh but I am of the school of thought that unless I see pics, I am not buying it.
        Also, as some have already mentioned, if it is an open relationship, how is it cheating?

      • ginger says:

        How far can you go in an open relationship? What are the basic rules? Just having one- night-stands with random people? Having a mistress?
        And if you are in an open relationship – are you allowed to have love children with your non-official-sex- partner(s)?

      • Dani says:

        I’m pretty sure Ruth Wilson disputed that rumor not too long ago?

  15. anna says:

    They both look different. Maybe just paler than usual. lol

  16. Mop top says:

    She looks totally devoid of any character in her face – maybe she had some work done?

  17. Nikole says:

    This is the most attractive I’ve ever found him to be.


  18. Tiffany says:

    Just a hypothetical. I think he and Tessa Thompson would make a cute couple.

  19. themummy says:

    I don’t know why, but I find her so plain. Like, if I saw her in the grocery store or something I’d not look twice. She’s pretty in an average way, sure, but I don’t get the great beauty from her that most seem to.

    • Ethelreda says:

      I wouldn’t call her plain, but I do not find her stunning either. She has that fine-featured, shymmetrical face which photographs well, but she is quite forgettable. Plus, she always looks kind of smug and cold.

      I still find it hard to understand why she was cast as Helen in ‘Troy’. They did a massive casting call, and she was the best they could find? Sure, she’s pretty enough, but we’re talking Helen of Troy here! She should be an absolute stunner – not just in looks, but in presence. Think a young Angelina Jolie or Charlize Theron. Diane was just so… insipid. And worse, she had zero charisma or personality.

    • Tonka says:

      I feel terrible admitting it, but I feel the same way about both of them. I find them so vapid and devoid of all charisma and sex appeal. I dont know why I can’t see it even if I don’t feel it. There are some celebrities who don’t float my boat but I recognize their appeal to others. These two look like every 30 something white couple I know. They must be more interesting in real life.

      • Ethelreda says:

        I’ve never found him attractive either – he looks chubby and boyish to me. Don’t get the appeal. I don’t see them as an ‘adorable couple’ either. He looks smug and she always looks as though she’s sucking on a lemon.

    • Jib says:

      @ethelreda, it’s funny, I feel the opposite. I think Kruger is stunning and I find Jolie to be so freaky looking – she has some weird features. I do agree Theron is amazing looking.

    • extracookie says:

      TA. And she always looks pissed and unaproachable. Her instagram is terrible as well. She either posts self-indulgend selfies or TB-pics from her modeling days or quotes about sex/relationships. Oh, and pics of her showing the middle finger are always charming as well. She’s a sweetheart.

      ETA: I usually lover her makeup but the eyeliner here does not do her any favors.

  20. Melymel says:

    I like him, never been a fan of hers though. I always get her confused with Kate Bosworth. But I do like that tux on her.

  21. Micki says:

    I’ve never bought them as a couple, I don’t know why.
    But I plan to buy tux like hers.

  22. malina says:

    I’m convinced they just did it for a show. They are actors but their body language in these pictures is off, am I the only one to think that? She’s clearly leaning away…

    • Dani says:

      I believe this also. Her instagram was quite clear that she was going through something with him.

    • extracookie says:

      Lets put it this way: It’s awful good timing.

      Then again, I’m not sure why they would feel the need to hide their breakup?

  23. Boo says:

    Wow. I’ve never seen them look less loved up. She’s not even looking at him and he’s trying to connect but she’s not looking at him and her upper body is pulled away from him.

    And they each look like completely different people too.

    So weird.

    I think they’re done and this is PR or something…it’s business looks like to me. Can’t get over how disconnected they are with each other here. Incredible change 🙁 It’s over.

    • SloaneY says:

      They definitely look over. If what they say about an open relationship is true, I can imagine that after time that would get old. I mean, if you’re always with other people, what’s the point?

  24. BobaFelt says:

    objectively, I don’t think he’s hot. Yet my first tingles from Pacey continued thru Fringe and beyond. I’ll always like him for the whole package (personality helps!). Also, I love when a woman wears menswear, like a tux, without her boobs just falling out. She’s covered up but still looks sexy and professional. Love it.
