Diane Kruger Wanted to Connect to Marie Antoinette

Diane Kruger steps out in style for a photo call in support of her latest movie, Farewell, My Queen, at La Reserve on Thursday (March 15) in Paris, France.

The 35-year-old actress (in Derek Lam) recently spoke to IndieWire about playing such a well known character.

“The perception of Marie Antoinette is already so established. That’s the danger of playing a historical figure because people have an opinion about her and have already judged her… [from] movies that have been made about her,” Diane said.

“For this movie it was irrelevant what I thought about it. I wanted to connect to her on a human basis…I wanted her to be more complex than just the symbol of what people think Marie Antoinette is or was,” she concluded.
