Diane Kruger Wanted to Connect to Marie Antoinette

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.

    I want that dress!

  • BloodbuzzOhio

    @R: Watch Anything for Her. She was great in that. She’s like Penelope Cruz in the sense that she’s better in foreign movies. Maybe it’s because she get better scripts.

    Horrible dress

  • Angelina Charlize

    she looks very plain to me

  • pickles

    Diane Kruger is very pretty, and she wears cutting edge fashion, but sometimes she is more of a fashion victim than a fashion icon.
    That dress is not at all attractive.

    Marie Antoinette is the new Marilyn Monroe.

  • glowing

    she is looking very good lately.

    NEW BOYFRIEND?

  • wow

    NEW BOYFRIEND?
    ++++
    So soon? LOL What happened to the old one?

  • glowing

    @wow:

    she realized that she cant have a future with him.
    can you blame here?

    he (out of respect of diane , i will not say his name anymore: i just call him the (bad) tv-actor)
    wanted a baby with her, he keeped puching it, but she opened her eyes and realized that if she gets pregnant and have his child , she will be forced to live on his tv-gigs. what a low/poor-life that will be , especially if diane is used to luxuary.

    good riddance, i say!

  • mnx

    glowing aka crazy patty

  • Deanna

    @glowing: Where did you hear that they broke up?

  • glowing

    @mnx:

    patty? who the f**** is she?

    so everybody who has something to say about that (bad) tv-actor must be crazy, right?

    stop making excuses for this sorry excuse of a man!

    proof me wrong , and share something positive about this dude?
    you cant find nothing,hé? i rest my case.

    next

  • glowing

    @Deanna:

    im a fan of diane’s work , so i follow her a lot.

    this year you could hardly find a picture of them together. they always go to the after parties (oscars/golden globe) but this year diane went alone.

    and they were rumours, that, that (bad) tv actor has cheated on her!

    i know that diane doesnt wear her ring (i dont blame her), but even that tv actor started not wearing his.

    so, the signs are there.

  • glowing

    @glowing:

    oh, and i forget to ad that she looks extremely happy lately

  • wow

    @glowing:
    That´s it? That´s your proof? maybe they both just lost their rings? LOL

  • glowing

    yeah right!

  • Roz

    @glowing: You make Diane look like a bitch, you want to insult Joshua but instead you make her sound like a superficial woman who doesn’t care about family, that she wasn’t comitted enough and is after rich men, I’m sure she’s not like that, but oh well you rather think of her being that way instead of accepting her relationship.

  • wow

    You make Diane look like a *****, you make her sound like a superficial woman who doesn’t care about family, that she wasn’t comitted enough and is after rich men.
    +++++++
    And what is wrong with that? She loves haute couture, expensive clothes, bags, shoes and she travels a lot. She needs money for that.
    She doesn´t want to have children right now. Her career´s more interesting for her. Why is it so bad? A lot of women are like her.
