Photos And Quotes From Diane Kruger in Interview Magazine

Diane Puts Her Modeling Moves to Good Use in Interview

Diane Kruger put on a military hat for an appropriately-themed photo shoot in October's Interview to chat about her work in Inglourious Basterds. It's the same issue that features a retro-looking Chace Crawford and edgy Natalie Portman so Diane's images are similarly slick and styled. She also opened up about her past in modeling, her looks, and life with Joshua Jackson. Here's more:

  • On why she stopped modeling: "I’ve got to tell you, the reason I stopped modeling was because I wasn’t pleased with trying to portray something that is impossible to reach. Even when I do photo shoots now for films, I’m just not interested in trying to look my best all the time anymore. That pursuit of an impossible perfection seems ridiculous to me now. I’d rather show my vulnerabilities or my doubts than try to be something that no one is."
  • On if she thinks she's too pretty to be taken seriously: "No, and that’s a silly thing to say anyway. Because, first of all, you sound like an ass if you say that. Brad Pitt seems to have no problem getting parts that he wants, nor does Angelina Jolie. Not that I’m saying I look like either of them, but I just don’t think that it has anything to do with that. It’s the emotions or characters you are able to take on that will get you work, not necessarily the way you look. Obviously, beauty can open doors — it is Hollywood, after all — but that’s not enough."
  • On feeling like she and Josh live under a microscope: "No, not at all. I say that because I refuse to be living in a bubble. I’m sorry, I cannot live my life sipping cocktails at the Chateau Marmont. Neither he nor I were raised that way. We come from really lower-middle-class families. I don’t know how I could portray those people in movies if I didn’t know what reality is anymore. I refuse that."

Finally, someone who gives the perfect answer to that question. Someone should send a copy of this interview to Megan Fox and any other no talent actress that got to where she is ONLY because of her looks and complains she is too pretty for the good roles. I'm liking this girl

My girl crush on Diane keeps growing. She just seems so much more grounded than a lot of others in Hollywood. Megan Fox -- Take note. This is how you be honest w/out coming off as a self-absorbed ass.

I love what she says about being too pretty to be taken seriously, it's just an excuse that Jessica Biel and Megan Fox use over and over, when just face it girls, you really are not that talented!I don't know much about her but she is growing on me and she's very adorable with Josh Jackson
