Diane Kruger is an Inglourious Basterd

Diane Kruger is an Inglourious Basterd

Diane Kruger (in a black Balmain mini-dress and studded Louboutin heels) kisses director Quentin Tarantino on the cheek at the UK film premiere of Inglourious Basterds at the Odeon Leicester Square on Thursday (July 23) in London, England.

Quentin Tarantino had much praise to heap on the 33-year-old actress at the premiere. “In the case of Diane it was really wonderful. She had an idea of who she was basing the character on, and I had another idea of another actress, so I showed he that kind of work,” he said.

“So we had fun creating almost a mythology of the character,” Tarantino added.

    That is her favorite dress to wear to Sunday Mass. Jeez, enough with these SKANKS already! And Quentin Tarantino looks like he’s been on a 3-day bender. Good Lord!

  • h

    i like the dress, but she is so predictable. always has the legs on show etc etc etc

  • Amy

    She’s stunning! She needs to get more roles. One of the best young actresses out in Hollywood.:)

  • i n f a m o u s l y c o o l

    i bet jared calls everyone who shows up to these premieres a “Inglourious Basterd”. hahahaha..

  • an oldie

    She speaks 3 languages (German, English and French) fluently. Very impressive for a beautiful girl like her. Great actress and so humble too.

  • lena

    lousy lame actress

  • albert

    Tarantino’s movies are bad except that CSI gig he directed. Kruger is vanilla looking and is such a bad actress. As my buddies said this is the beauty that launched a thousand ships?????

  • zoe

    #2, totally disagree about the point with diane being predictable. she is the total opposite and always wears something surprising. she knows what works and doesn’t.

    not diane’s best look but she still looks amazing.

  • juli

    although i´m german, and i think that she´s pretty and smart, i don´t think that she should act. it´s allways kind of boring and not much feeling behind it.

    to #5: it´s not that amazing. germany is her homecountry, english we learn from 5th to 12th grade and the second former language we start in 7th grade. so if she was attentive in school it´s not that impressive

    Wow, That’s impressive. In this country most people struggle with getting English right.

  • juli

    @ladams: that´s true, and i´m ashamed by all those people, who don´t even know how to say their name…i mean the english don´t have to be perfekt-mine isn´t- but a little bit smalltalk, come on ;-)

  • mertz

    lol. what’s her face this chick didn’t pick up all her multiple languages in school in germany. lol. hahahaaa. anyways. i agree about her not acting part. i think she’s a moderate actor/has potential. she hasn’t been doing this long enough to dishonour the artform yet…but give it a couple years. she’ll become firmly established in HW and i will revaluate my she shouldn’t act postion. anyways FEMALES NEED TO READ THIS.


  • nikomilinko

    I miss Pitt on the red carpet

  • Orchid

    I like the dress. Don’t like the shoes.

  • Lil

    I like the shoes. Don’t like the dress :)

  • lola

    I think she looks great and I don’t think she is predictable at all. I think she makes daring fashion choices and can pull it off better than a lot of other actresses. And I don’t really think she is a bad actress either (Troy was shit all together and no one gave a good performance in that film, so it doesn’t count). A difference of opinion obviously but I think she is beautiful and look forward to seeing her movies.

  • NativeNYker

    Not the right dress for her at all! She looks washed out.

    Rants, Thoughts & Merde

  • Irish Girl

    Gorgeous girl. Her legs are gorgeous. I’ve only sen her Troy and I thought she did well with her role – even though women were not the central characters in the movie (cough Brad Pitt).

  • Vicki

    That is the ugliest dress ever.

  • melissa

    why isn’t Brad there?

  • D.

    Beautiful girl. Gorgeous legs.

  • whatever

    b/c brad isbusy f&*ing you in your dreams….

  • http://Thedressisadorable YES!

    Nice face, a bit too tall to act with others in Hollywood, but she can’t act at all.
    She’s a model, and that’s about it.

  • Noticias de famosos

    Diane has a beautiful dress, it was fantastic.

  • tina

    She looks great. Youthfull. I don’t like the way her hair styled.

  • tick tock

    @i n f a m o u s l y c o o l: Jealous as usual.

  • tata

    Very pretty girl.

  • Hula

    She’s beautiful but I agree she’s not a good actress.

    She left Germany at a young girl to dance ballett professionally in London and later worked as a model in France. That’s were she picked up the languages.

    Her real name is Heidkrüger btw.

  • Mike

    She is very pretty but an average actress

  • school

    She left school after ten years, so her fluently english and french surely was not learned at school.
    And to speak a language fluently it takes more than learning at school.
    She lived in London and Paris for a while. That’s the only way to learn a language completly

  • sniffles

    I’m no expert, but this woman is just plain to me. As far as I can tell the woman loves to show off her legs, nothing so special about her. From what I’ve seen of her acting, she should just stick to modeling.

  • lakers fan in boston

    had 2 wikipedia her 2 find out where ive seen her before
    nation treasure
    im surprised i dont no much about her
    she looks really amazing
    she just looks gorgeous and those legs r wonderful =]
    she has a great smile as well

  • cassandra

    she looks lovely :)

  • jealous morticia

    She is beautiful, more beautiful than mangelina that’s for sure, where is Pitt? jealous mangelina didn’t want him to go to pose with this pretty girl?

  • stacey

    She looks great!

  • Scruffy puffy

    she got into pictures by PHUCKING HER WAY THERE. SHE is a sleazzzebag douce.

  • mailey

    she is very pretty, but this whole outfit including her hair is bad.

  • mimilala

    She looks great and amazingly, Diane actually looks like what a 33-yr old looks like…unlike many others out there.

  • twpumpkin


  • Sally

    She was gorgeous! Everything just perfect: hair, make up, dress, acessories, shoes… really stunning.

  • Hermione

    I think she should look in the mirror and realize she is not twenty anymore and that the dress is a little to short. She looks fine but her legs are are getting just a little to heavy for such a short dress. It’s hard to admit but reality does bite some times. I know it’s Hollywood but if she with Joshua Jackson now she should cool it with Terrantino. A little class goes a long way.

  • suppress your appetite

    she looks amazing!
