    Diane Kruger is so beautiful, I love her! Can’t wait! And Terrence Malick! Ultimate beauty!

    Diane Kruger is talented and gorgeous. It is a surprise that she hasn’t broken through to A-list level yet, but she doesn’t play up to the tabloids, so they don’t give her that push, I guess.

    All the more impressive on her behalf, IMHO!
    An actor’s job is to act, and improve, not worry about your ability to make headlines for behaving like shameless babies and human garbage.
    I look forward to viewing this film, paying for a ticket, and supporting worthwhile film, AND actors such as Ms. Kruger, et. al.

    She is a stunning woman.

    Black and white, Sick! Haven’t seen Diane Kruger in a B&W movie before, this sounds awesome.

  • creed

    Can they make any more Abe Lincoln movies?

  • halli


    Actually I do see her as an elite actress – not what “A level” means in Hollywood, which is all about name recognition. But she isn’t B List either. She occupies a good space

  • Intric8

    Wish she were MY stepmother lol

  • yuri


  • mmm

    she must have sucked director’s cock as in troy.

  • Carlo

    I thought she was going to play the sister of Freddy Krueger in A Nightmare on Elm Street.

  • Danuuu

    Love her, but just how many Lincoln movies are we getting?

  • Hello

    @halli: Yeah, she gets a lot of roles. Not just English-language roles, but French and German. That is impressive. She has improved so much since Troy. She just gets better and better. I think her best performances have been in French.

  • Magic Mark

    How about Megan Fox as Mary Todd Lincoln?

  • Anon

    She isn’t getting offered the same caliber of roles as Marion Collitard is she? Marion can pick and choose whereas poor Diane has to beg on her knees for her roles.

  • Danuuu

    @Anon: Marion Cotillard is getting slammed for her performance in The Dark Knight Rises, whereas Diane Kruger is getting praised for Farewell My Queen

  • Anon

    At least she’s getting the chance to act in mainstream movies that are successful staring talented actors. Seriously, Diane’s performance in those stupid treasure movies was horrid. Diane isn’t even the main star in Farewell, she doesn’t even show up until 20 minutes into the film. Marion will always be a better actress than Diane and a true beauty. Apparently Marion is also a better partner as well if you consider who Guillaume Canet is with currently.

  • Bella

    Her hairline is frightening. It’s funny that she’ll be portraying a step mother, when in real life she may have to do that for Suri. Come on, everyone knows that Joshua Jackson is Suri’s biological father.

  • Danuuu

    @Anon: yeah, Marion Cotillard is enjoying Diane’s sloppy seconds, woohoo, props to her! You’re saying Diane isn’t the main star in Farewell My Queen? OK, granted but your point is? Marion isn’t the star of The Dark Knight Rises as far as I’m aware? And Marion “gets the chance to act in mainstream movies that are successful staring talented actors”. Sure, good for her. But so does Diane. Farewell My Queen is a “successful mainstream movie” with “talented actors”. It’s made over 3 million euros in France to date and has a 92% on Rotten Tomatoes. Oh you mean it isn’t mainstream cause it’s French? So you want mainstream American movies? What about Inglourious Basterds? You know the movie where Diane starred alongside Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender and Chritoph Waltz among others?

    another movie about Abraham Lincoln…*yawns*
