Diane Kruger is ‘just friends’ with Norman Reedus, if you believe that

2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Viewing Party

Here are some photos of Diane Kruger at the Vanity Fair Oscar party. Diane wore Alexandre Vauthier, a dramatic little minidress. I was expecting to see Diane at the parties, even though she used to do the whole Oscar night blitz with Joshua Jackson. She seemed to go solo on Sunday night, even though… yeah, it’s looking more and more like Diane and Norman Reedus have been together this whole time. In fact, I’m now positive that Reedus was the reason why Joshua and Diane split in the first place. I’m also positive that Diane and Norman have been banging for more than a year. Why do I say that? Because they’re now getting pap’d after taking roadtrips together, just the two of them.

Those photos came out last Friday, and they were published by TMZ, the Daily Mail and other outlets. They seem to show Diane and Norman “unloading bags from Reedus’s Porsche” after a “romantic road trip” in New York. But after the photos came out, E! News did a story about how they’re just friends. Literally, this is the sentence: “E! News has learned exclusively that the two are ‘just friends.’” Are you joking? Um. I don’t get why Diane is being so cagey about this. We’ve gotten used to the idea that she cheated on Joshua with Norman and basically left Joshua FOR Norman. Why so coy?

    That dress is terrible. She used to have such infallible style!

    • Charlotte says:

      She’s one of those girls that changes styles as they change boyfriends. Now that she’s with Norman Reedus, she is more rock, dirty, mundane, sexy. Guess what Diane, not a good look for you.

      • ell says:

        or maybe she just changes style because of fashion, and nothing to do with boyfriends? i’m pretty into fashion myself, and what she’s wearing atm is just the current trends.

      • Charlotte says:

        @ell She was still doing fashion when dating Joshua Jackson, it’s just that she seems to totally have changed her style after breaking up with him and it’s an awkard one that doesn’t seem to suit her.

      • ell says:

        but charlotte, fashion changes a lot, that’s what i mean. what she was wearing when she was with josh was what was relevant at the time, and now she’s into this sort of grungy/punk revival everyone’s wearing.

        personally i like it, but it’s fashion and it’s down to taste so if you think it doesn’t suit her, it’s ok. but it’s nothing to do with boyfriends, and all to do with wearing the latest trend e.g. the blue versace dress is what the likes of bella hadid are wearing right now, and everyone’s copying it.

        ETA: i don’t have a bone in this fight, as in i like diane & josh more than reedus

    • Lisa smith says:

      Who cares about the dress she has killer legs!

      • Esmom says:

        I know, they look amazing. Her new haircut is really flattering, too.

      • Clare says:

        She does have fantastic legs, and she is beautiful – I just hate the dress on her.

      • Elisa the I. says:

        ITA, banging body and the shorter hair looks great on her. But the dress is fugly as hell.

      • SilverUnicorn says:

        Is what ‘good legs’ look like nowadays? I always found her stunning but she seems to have lost a lot of weight and her thighs seem way too skinny to be defined ‘killer’… JMO

      • Zuzus Girl says:

        SilverUnicorn – I’m with you. Her legs (and body in general) look very thin right now.

      • Tallia says:

        Amazing gams.

      • Gigi says:

        her legs are scrawny, you can almost see the shape of her thigh bones, she’s lost too much weight

    • oh come on says:

      who cares about this old story!
      I read Joshua Jackson has a love-child with his co-star – I wanna hear about THAT!

  2. Margo S. says:

    Maybe she thinks it will effect her brand? And maybe I’m on my own here, but if I were single, I wouldnt be going on road trips alone with my single guy friend… I would with my boyfriend. We aren’t dumb diane!

    • Merry says:

      Maybe its one of those undefined situations where one of you isnt sure you want to call it a relationship so you just live life without a definition. Or maybe they are just now on a break. Or maybe they are not ready to tell the world and want to protect it for longer. Or maybe she is trying to limit Joshuas embarrassment until they are sure its heading to an alter. There are lots of possibilities here.

      • milla says:


        maybe they have some sex on call thing. she was in a relationship for 10 yrs.

        she has amazing legs btw. even the stupid dress cannot destroy her look.

    • DeniseMich says:

      Maybe because he doesn’t believe in monogamy. I believe he said that in an interview on the new Chelsea show.

      Best not to define something when a photo could surface of him banging someone else next week.

    • lol says:

      TMZ says they were not on a trip together. Norman went Upstate NY with his son & the son’s friends, Diane stayed in NYC. These garage pictures were taken before Norman´s trip, not after. Diane was photographed shopping the same day (Saturday, 18), wearing the same outfit & carrying the same bags. Norman´s reps denied that they are dating.

  3. Maria says:

    her fashion mojo has disappeared since the break up. Not sure if it is the new partner or being single, but she has not worn anything decent in months.

  4. OSTONE says:

    I don’t get Norman reedus’ appeal. I don’t get how one goes from Joshua to him.

    • Mannori says:

      I’m on the opposite side: I totally get the attraction to someone like Norman: not the most clean cut, nice loving type you’d introduce to your parents but someone interesting with an edge and artsy vibe. Joshua? totally meh: boring and vanilla, and not even interesting physically: he looks like someone who still has to lose his baby fat and too “nice” and boyish to be interesting.

      • ell says:

        joshua’s lovely and very funny. but i do think norman and diane make a lot of sense.

      • Jess says:

        I completely agree with you on Norman, he’s attractive to me in a bad boy kind of way, but the older I got the more I was attracted to safe guys like Joshua! I wanna say Norman lost points with for me for dating a really young girl not that long ago, that creeps me out, but I’ll google that because I may be confusing him with someone else.

        I lucked out, my husband is a perfect blend of nerdy engineer and naughty bad boy, lol.

      • Luca76 says:

        Joshua Jackson is hot in motion he doesn’t photograph like he’s got a ton of sex appeal but he brings a smoldering intensity on camera . I loved him in Fringe.

      • Mimz, says:

        @Luca76 Fringe fans represent!!!!

        Hahaha it’s so rare for me to find anyone else who watched this show I’m genuinely happy when I find someono who did.
        And yes he was “The sex” on Fringe. Like. wow…

    • Babs says:

      Reedus is unconventionnally attractive, and Pacey is conventionnally unattractive.

    • Merry says:

      We don’t know what Joshua is like to live with though. Maybe he is an incredible bore or maybe he turns into werewolf at night. Its not like a media demeanor gives us any insight on who the man is in private relationships.

    • Nicole says:

      I don’t get it either but I never was into the greasy look on guys. The whole “I haven’t showered in days” look was never my jam but it is for others. Not saying Joshua is my type either ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
      Ether way my thing is always the cheating which is the biggest turnoff in this entire scenario

    • Adrien says:

      Joshua is like Justin Timberlake to me. Both cute guys but they have some fratboy appeal. I feel like Josh made James Vander Beek cry in real life. Normie reminds me of David Bowie that is why I find him hot.

      • Neverwintersand says:

        Nah, Bowie always looked effortlessly chic, and this guy lookes bloated and greasy.

    • Darlene says:

      Agreed. I find Norman gross and unappealing, while Joshua is adorable.

  5. Monsi says:

    Maybe fashion karma is a real thing

  6. Mannori says:

    well, maybe she’s using some sort of euphemism to imply that whereas there’s something going on it isn’t serious enough to call it a relationship or even more probable: they’re still trying to figure it out what is it. Sometimes we forget that not everybody and not every relationship is easy to be labeled: everybody has their own times and that happens to civilians and celebs equally, it’s just that the public demands that celebs will give explanations all the time, to things that they’re not even sure about it just yet.

    • ell says:


    • Luca76 says:

      Yeah to me the just friends label screams they aren’t in a committed relationship and I won’t be surprised to hear of one or both of them out carousing with someone else.

  7. ell says:

    she’s probably cagey because of the whole cheating thing, but everyone knows by now so they should just get over it. no one but a bunch of uptight people cares she cheated anyway, most adults understand that life happens, and it’s sad and all but sometimes you fall out of love and fall for someone else. as long as we’re not talking of continuous cheating a la ben affleck (and where children are involved as well) there’s not much to feel guilty about. do your thing diane!

    it’s nice he’s dating age appropriate btw, in the past he was with a 18 yo, which was pretty gross.

  8. nemera34 says:

    I loved Norman in the beginning of TWD.. now he just skeeves me out. I just don’t like the hair. Maybe if it was cut and lighter. I don’t know. It and he always just looks dirty, and not in a sexy way.
    If they are a couple so what at this point. They are both single. Neither married. So why would anyone care at this point if they are seeing each other. They are not going to generate any tabloid covers.

  9. Danielle says:

    I’m guessing one or both of them doesn’t want to make it officialbecause they are seeing get other people as well.

  10. Kiki says:

    IF she did cheat on John with Normon, why would she not be Cagey?
    I don’t get why she should be singing from the mountains her personal business if she doesn’t want to.
    I understand the paps taking pictures or whatever but they could just be friends with benefits.
    What’s the big deal?

  11. Babs says:

    The haircut is nice, I love it.

  12. S says:

    He dumped her, that’s why.

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      I think she saw a relationship while he saw someone to hook up with while on set.
      Sucks to be her I guess.

      • siri says:

        I think the same; he’s not ready for what she calls a ‘relationship’. I believe he’s having other female ‘friends with benefits’ while she is looking for something more stable. To me, she still seems quite immature. I guess she had to lower her expectations, otherwise we wouldn’t see them together anymore.

  13. Belooooga says:

    Wow so none of you has ever had a close male friend? I feel sorry for you in your gender segregated world. You’d learn alot by having friends different yourself. Just a tip.

    • Nicole says:

      More like she’s “just friends” with a guy that she cheated on her SO with. Totally different. They could be just friends but no is buying it because she was (or still is) sleeping with him

    • Luca76 says:

      They were seen making out at a club just before her longtime relationship ended. It’s pretty basic logic that they are doing the humpty.

      • lucy2 says:

        Yeah, I could believe they’re just friends if they hadn’t been spotted making out.

    • ell says:

      ok, but there have been several reports of them doing more than the friend thing, so they must at least be friends with benefits of sorts.

    • astrid says:

      From that old Billy Crystal line about men and women being friends…men and women can’t be friends because the sex stuff always gets in the way.

    • mia girl says:

      Funny thing @Belooooga – I have always had best friends who are male AND I also don’t believe these two are “just friends”. Both situations can exist at the same time.

      I’m going to give you the benefit of the doubt that you didn’t mean to, but your comment came off really condescending and aggressive. You might want to take a pause before you come after people like that.
      Just a tip.

    • QueenB says:

      if we take every “just friends” from famous people literally then all celebs are celibate and have lots of friends.

    • jerkface says:

      Yeah. My best guy friend taught me how to pee outside and to not date men who have dirty or long fingernails. I taught him how to start a camp fire and to check ID’s if you’re going to hook up with girls from night clubs near the path station.

  14. Casting Girl says:

    Norman has always been catnip for models…..and Kruger is the next in a long line…I worked on a show with him when he was with Bridget Hall, and he is long on boyish charm. Really adorable personality..and I imagine good in the sack lol

  15. Lii says:

    Pacey is so blah looking.

  16. Nicole says:

    He is filming his show Ride with Dave Chapelle right now in Savannah. Today and tomorrow is Charleston and Beaufort, so keep a look out! DC is really nice. Didn’t care for Reedus.

  17. Paris says:

    Friends with benefits?

  18. ash says:

    this is an undefined thing…that i currently have with someone….if ANYONE would demand an answer i would say hey were friends man, relax. LOL

  19. Nancy says:

    Late to the party I am, but I would take Norman Reedus with me anywhere, any time.

  20. Dttimes2 says:

    Ummm she had better NOT be dating my boyfriend….I have loved him since Boondock Saints and now with Walking Dead my love has just exploded…hes dirty sexy without being try hard (side eyes justin Theroux).

  21. QQ says:

    I bet they are good Friends…


    ….That F*ck (ed?)

  22. Miss M says:

    This photo is very flattering. The other one I saw she looked pregnant, so I guessed was either bad posture or this awful dress of hers…

    • Gigi says:

      maybe why she keeps saying she quit smoking and had an early night. 40 is the time to have a kid if you want kids

      • Gigi says:

        sorry did not mean to sound like she is pregnant now just she could be thinking about it
