Diane Kruger Talks Marriage, Growing Up, and Dawson's Creek

Diane Kruger is looking stunning as always on the front cover of the new issue of Marie Claire, starring in a gorgeous photo shoot inside the magazine. She also opens up about her childhood, the effect her family had on her, her man Joshua Jackson and why she doesn't think she'll get married again. Take a peek behind the scenes of her cover shoot and check out some excerpts from her fascinating interview:

  • On Dawson’s Creek: "I have never seen one episode of Dawson’s Creek. I must be the only person on this planet. I went to a Women in Hollywood event two months ago and Katie Holmes was being honoured. And all of her clips of Dawson’s Creek were with Josh and it was so weird. He was all pimply and had a bloated face [laughs]. I had to call him and he was like, ‘Don’t watch it! Don’t watch it!’ Very funny."
  • On how Inglourious Basterds has changed people’s perceptions of her: "I’m European, I’m small, dainty, but I don’t perceive myself as that at all. I actually consider myself more of a tomboy. But I’ve not been allowed to play those parts in America and I think it just changed the way people and film-makers think of me."
  • On her upbringing: "My home was a little difficult. My father was ill. He was... is an alcoholic, so he wasn’t really around. My mom, Maria-Theresa, worked in a bank, so I grew up mostly with my grandparents. We always had jobs. Between the ages of eight and 12, I was a professional griever. I’m not joking! I went to Catholic school and they would have young girls with a candle stand in front of the coffins. It was the worst job anyone could think of. You would stand there, with people crying and weeping, and walk in front of the coffin. Once they were buried, the priest would come up to you and hand you five Deutschmarks."

  • On if her upbringing affected her career choice: "I don’t know. I think everybody has childhood problems, issues, whatever. I was an angry child when I was a teenager. I just really hated school, and the Catholic bit was part of that. Just the suppression of everything and being so proper. I began to resent it when I was around 11 or 12. I just didn’t see myself as academic. I wasn’t happy so I loved to be able to express my anxiety or passion or whatever you feel by dancing."
  • On her marriage to Guillaume Canet: "[I was] 23 or 24. Very young. That’s what it was. That lasted five years. Oh, yeah, it was a big love."
  • On the possibility of future marriage: "No, I don’t think so. Because I’ve realised commitment is important and no matter what paper you’re going to sign, if that commitment ceases to be there you’ll get out of the marriage anyway. You know, I might get married at 50 or 60, when it actually means something to say ‘for the rest of my life’."

Guillaume Canet is a wonderful actor and simply gorgeous (he's dating Marion Cotillard now). I remember reading an interview with Diane where she said he's still one of her best friends.

i think that i didn't realize that she had been married before either - but i guess it takes a great person to be with someone who doesn't want to be married and that's what josh is to her i guess :)
