Diane Kruger, we love you… even if you were a douche in your younger days.
The actor is on the cover of August’s Town & Country, talking all about the glory days of acting. And generally, she seems really smart but I love how she comes clean about how fame spoiled her. It’s a pretty interesting read- go HERE to check it out in its entirety. Here are some highlights:
On being spoiled by fame: “I had become arrogant,” the August 2016 cover girl, who started modeling in her teens, told the magazine. “I had been a model, I spoke three languages, I had a career. I felt I had it all figured out. And then I realized that I was living this very privileged life in my own bubble that I created and I [didn’t] know anything about what [was] really going on in the world and I didn’t ask enough questions.”
On what she did to change her life: “I made a lot of different choices,” she recalled. “I cut people out of my life who I felt were enabling my bubble.”
On meeting her boyfriend, Joshua Jackson: “Meeting someone like my partner, who has a very different perspective, who likes to travel in a different way and be open to various experiences, was so important. I was 30 years old and I was already bored of fancy hotels.”
The Sky actress has been dating Jackson, 38, since 2006. During a 2013 interview with Conan O’Brien, Kruger revealed their first date was kind of disastrous:
“He took me to this romantic place. … It was a little intense,” Kruger recalled. “It was overgrown with beautiful flowers, to which I had a huge allergic reaction. Like really, really bad. I was sneezing and coughing and my eyes were watery. … I thought this guy is never going to call me again or talk to me. But he sent flowers the next day — with a box of Kleenex.”
