Diane Kruger is a vision in bright, bold Spring colors on the latest cover of Marie Claire UK. The Inglourious Basterds star looked stunning in her Chanel gown at the Oscars but stripped down to just the basics inside the issue. She talks openly about her family, her relationship with Joshua Jackson, and future plans for marriage. For more of Diane check out the behind-the-scenes video from the cover shoot and read what she had to say about her first marriage, people's perception of her, and career plans. Here are highlights:
- 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 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 honored. 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 the possibility of future marriage: "No, I don’t think so. Because I’ve realized 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'."
