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

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.”

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.

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

# 6

I haven’t seen it have you?

# 7

LOVE this movie!!!

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

# 8

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.

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?!?

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.

Yes, Diane was great. I loved IB! Everyone performed so well.

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 !

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 .

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?

Her hairline is receeding…

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!!!

I loved her in the movie!

She was perfect in the movie..i liked her a lot.
