Diane Kruger: 'Inglourious Basterds' Role Was Perfect for Me

Diane Kruger poses in a cozy sweater by Etro in this shot for V magazine’s upcoming issue, on newsstands Thursday (January 14).

The 33-year-old German actress shared what it was like to play a part in Inglourious Basterds that seemed to be tailor-made for her.

“The minute [my character Bridget] speaks, she has to demand attention, and when she speaks, nobody else does,” Diane shared. “There’s a certain energy to her that I don’t think I naturally have, and it was very hard for me to bring that to set every day.”

“When I first got the script,” Diane added, “I couldn’t believe that after all these years of trying to get rid of my German accent to play American roles, finally along came a part that was not only a great part, but also perfect for me.”

  • CanadaGirl

    Great movie and great role. I love that Quentin is no-holds-barred for making women strong, aggressive, assertive, etc. , but also being unapologetic in letting women get “offed” in GLORIOUS fashion.
    .
    That final movie theatre scene was phenomenal.

  • tom

    She is beautiful but she was horrible in that movie. The worst one in the film.

  • michaela

    I haven’t seen it have you?

  • kay

    LOVE this movie!!!

    also, is it just me…or does her lower right leg look odd?

  • Jen

    She was good in the movie, but I thought Melanie Laurent was better and had the more difficult part. How Laurent was not nominated for best supporting actress for the GG’s or SAG is beyond me.

  • sped

    @tom:

    I have to agree, she was horrible in this movie. I don’t see how she could have possibly been nominated for a SAG award. BIG mystery?!?

  • Lena

    NO, the worst one was Brad, his southern accent was a joke….he was really out of place in this movie with all the other great actors around him. Also, I bet he’s kicking his ass right now that he didn’t make this movie 1st before Mr. and Mrs.Snooze, because Diane is MUCH hotter than Skangelina! Then I would have understood the attracton. And, she’s a waaaay better actress than blowfish lips.

    Shut up Maniston mourner ! Just because big Chin Chin is the WORST actress of the century doesn’t mean you had to take a fist at the one who was right to dump her 5 years ago !
    .
    The poor man would have been submitted to be the loser companion of the mismanagement fiasco record holder !

  • ditto

    are you serious ? first, are you french ? because if you were french, you would have seen that melanie laurent is very bad in this movie,she has the same facial expression in all her other films …

    She even said she didn’t deserve to go to the Oscars, or be nominated!
    she wouldnt fight for it .

    french critics didn’t like her very much in this movie, they just praised the amazing performance of christoph waltz .

  • vox

    I think she was awful in that movie. My first language is german and when she spoke german, it sounded so weird and unnatural. She had a very slight and strange accent. Maybe because she lived in Paris since she was 16. I don’t know. Any other german speaking people on this board who agree with me?

  • kay

    @vox:

    i have a friend who was born in germany and lived there until age 16…he said the same thing about her german accent and the way she spoke

  • T pain

    Her hairline is receeding…

  • Lena

    @The Boohoo Sisters in Despair:
    WOW!! All you Skangelina worshippers just can’t get off the JA hate bandwagon. If you read my message again you MORON, there’s no mention of JA…..I’m not even a fan of hers……has it ever occured to you IDIOTS that some of us don’t like her just because of who she is? Also, my message clearly states that Pitts would have left her anyways, it’s just toooooooo BAD that the BLACK WIDOW was first in his target. Now go take your meds hon!!!

  • Lena

    @sofia:
    Glad to oblige! :-)

  • Ivana Serbia

    She was absolute in that movie! Congrats :)

  • ellie’

    never seen the movie…no opinion…

  • sorella

    Great, great movie, loved it, everyone was terrific in it, Brad, Diane, Melanie..all the performances were great. Diane may be blond but she’s not a cookie cutter Hollywood blond, in the right role, she’s great. And she dates Joshua Jackson, a fellow Canadian, he’s yummy.

  • sniffles

    I see someone else agrees about her hairline, it definitely looks like it’s receding. She’s pretty, but not gorgeous.
