Diane Kruger put her life in the hands of director Quentin Tarantino on the set of war movie Inglourious Basterds – after agreeing to let the filmmaker choke her during a fight scene.

Kruger plays German spy Bridget von Hammersmark in the film about a group of Jewish-American Nazi killers.
In one brutal scene Kruger’s character is strangled – and Tarantino was convinced the only way to make the struggle realistic was to choke his leading lady himself.

He explains, “When you watch the film those are actually my hands that are on Diane Kruger’s throat strangling her. I made a deal with her early on. (I told her) ‘We’re gonna have to choke you if it’s gonna actually work and I don’t trust anybody but myself to do it.’ And she didn’t trust anybody but me to do it … so she was down (ok) with it but I remember talking to her about it (and saying) it’s going to be a little uncomfortable.”
