She’s a distinguished model as well as a German actor. Diane has made her wealth from her parts in many movies. Diane also has endorsements from several firms like L’Oreal. She recently was discovered in her role as Dr Abigail Chase in National Treasure. Her performance in the parts of Bridget Von in Inglorious Basterds and Gina in Unknown were widely valued by the crowd and also from the critics. She represented the agency, Elite Model Look of Germany. Kruger did modeling to get a relatively limited time, but at that time, she managed to do ads for prestigious firms including Chanel, Salvatore Ferragamo, Giorgio Armani, and Louis Vuitton. These advertisements made people take notice of Diane. She appeared on the covers of magazines like Vogue, Cosmopolitan and others in this way. Diane yet quit her modeling career once she determined that she would pursue a career in acting. She took acting lessons at the Cours Florent and went on to play small parts in many French movies. She received notice when she played the character of Helen of Sparta in “Troy”. She was born on 15th July 1976 in Algermissen, Germany. In 1999, she started dating the French actor and manager Guilaume Canet. The cause of the divorce was said to be their respective livelihood.

Diane Kruger Quotes

1[on being inspired by Romy Schneider] I dreamed about coming to France and finding a French boyfriend and making French movies. I thought there was a romance to her life, at least when I was younger, that I just so admired and I do love French films and there was a light inside of her that I remember, since I was very young, that just made me dream and it inspired me so much and I fell in love with French cinema because of her and I will say that the French have welcomed me like one of their own. I started out in France. I went to drama school in France and to this day I'm their adopted step-kid and when I'm in a great film I'm French, not so great I'm Franco-Allemande (French/German).
2[on her role as Asperger's-afflicted "Sonya Cross" in The Bridge (2013)] I am fiercely protective of her. I think she has integrity. She is strong and yet really, really vulnerable and lonely in her personal life. It's the most colorful character I've ever been allowed to play.
3[on her quitting modeling] I thought "fuck everyone" and moved back to Paris, called my agent and said I didn't want to model any more, which they couldn't believe because I was 22 and doing very well. But I left it and went to drama school, and I'm so happy I did.
4Sometimes it takes courage and experience to allow yourself to actually go there, and it's the most liberating thing to let go. I do think that's why I love acting - you're right, it's being someone that you're not. And sometimes you're really scared of it, and then once you let yourself go there, it's the best thing ever.
5"Her beauty didn't do her any good and she couldn't use it in any positive way or manipulative way." - on Helen of Troy.
6I'm a little bit worried about this sudden success. I am quite independent and I'm afraid that this privilege could escape from me.
7It was something strange for me, to kiss Orlando. I was so embarassed! It is not as fun as people think to shoot love scenes. You feel vulnerable, and there are about 100 people looking at you.
8With Wolfgang Petersen, we were always the only two ready at time and the first on the set during the filming of Troy (2004). The German rigour without a doubt.
