Diane Kruger: ‘I go to the gym four times a week. No treadmill but I lift weights’


Diane Kruger recently turned 40 years old and she broke up with her boyfriend of a decade, Joshua Jackson. It feels like starting over, doesn’t it? How could it not? But does starting over have to be bad? Maybe Diane feels free, maybe she’s looking forward to her fresh start. It was widely believed that Joshua and Diane had gotten an apartment together in NYC last year, and it seems as if Diane is still living in that apartment. Maybe. Like, she’s calling New York home now, and New York is the setting for her fresh start. Diane chatted with Cindy Adams at Page Six about moving to the city full time:

Diane on NY: “I love New York. I was born in Europe. Went to school in Paris. I make movies in French. I just visited Sri Lanka. And I’m from Germany. Algermissen, near Hildesheim. I lived here 20 years ago. I miss it. My friends are here. I come to New York so much. It has the best food. I love the yellow cabs. I visit Brooklyn. I take the subway. I don’t like stairs too much so I now have a bike. I go to the gym four times a week. No treadmill but I lift weights. I’ll never have a butt like Beyoncé but my body (size 2) needs toning. There’s no problem being recognized because you hide in jeans, T-shirt, big hat, no makeup and nobody knows you.”

Whether she has an enormous closet:
“I don’t struggle with clothes. Every three months I clean out my wardrobe. I keep something maybe six months.”

I love Diane’s series of short statements about why she loves her New York life. The food is good. I have a bike. I will never have Beyonce’s butt. That’s a reason to live in New York too: there’s a decent chance that Beyonce is somewhere in the city, going through Jay-Z’s phone. You know who else lives in New York full-time? Norman Reedus. Yeah. I think they’re still dealing with each other.

As for her workouts… I think it’s great that she’s lifting weights and yeah, she probably gets enough cardio. I wish I could go without cardio. Sigh…

    Humblebrag much? “I’m so worldly…and naturally tiny.” And she buys new clothes every six months? Hmm. Also I don’t understand what not liking stairs has to do with getting a bike.

    I don’t know why but pretty much every sentence of this has rubbed me the wrong way.

    • BeefJerky says:

      The subway has a lot of stairs, getting down to it and up from it. When you bike to get around, you avoid those stairs.

    • anna says:

      well, she is worldly and she is a fashion girl. so i guess designers send her all these clothes. i like diane. very much. rock on, krugs!

    This is probably the best part of city life. Forgoing lots of cardio. I live in the suburbs and drive everywhere. Whenever I’m in the big city near where I live in amazing how much I end up walking. My step count is insane. My step count is virtually nothing in suburbia if I don’t go out and actually move around.

    • Bridget says:

      Not every big city is like that – LA is notoriously car dependent. But NY is a walking city.

  3. Caitlin Bruce says:

    If she is dating Norman which I think is the case since those pictures came out of them in Tuscany. When they come out as a couple it’s going to be so awkward at them trying to deny she cheated on Joshua.

  4. The Gift says:

    Did anyone else see the photo on her instagram that got everyone talking? She’s not size 2. Chica’s a size zero

  5. tracking says:

    I think she is the most naturally youthful 40 year old I’ve ever seen. I keep hearing lifting weights is more effective than cardio, need to get on that.

    • ladysussex says:

      I also read that lifting weights at maximum effort produces human growth hormone, which helps keep you youthful. But girlfriend doesn’t look like she’s lifting like that. She’s got some good genes, though!

  6. Juluho says:

    Lifting weights is great cardio, not only do you burn calories during the workout you burn more calories throughout the day. Women should weight lift more!

  7. Caitlin Bruce says:

    She just posted on her Instagram “If you’re lucky enough to find a weirdo never let them go.” Subtlety isn’t this chicks strong point. Just like all the obvious break up posts before they made there break up public domain.

    • tracking says:

      Seems she fell hard, eh?

    • Mary Carol says:

      I admit I’m jelly she got Norman Reedus, but she ain’t keepin’ him. He stayed with his super model girl friend who was the mother of his son for five years. I think that is his longest relationship. There is a blind going around he banged his kid’s teacher in a bar bathroom lately. He’s a BAD boy. They can’t be kept.

    Love her casual outfit!!

  9. shannon says:

    She is obviously choosing her @ss over her face.

  10. HoustonGrl says:

    Oof, she does not have a natural instinct for PR. I think she means well with theses comments by trying to show what she’s grateful for, but it just comes off as self absorbed and snobby.

  11. Linds says:

    I’m always so shocked when girls that “lift” and “avoid cardio” are somehow 100 lbs with no meat or muscle definition. Hmm.

    Size 2 at 40 years old es no bueno. Gain some weight Diane
