Diane Kruger Covers 'Manhattan' Magazine March 2013
Here’s what the 36-year-old actress had to share:
On her character in The Host: But really, is she a villain or not? That’s the question. I mean, even the other aliens find her strange. It was very strange to go from Versailles [for Farewell, My Queen] to Baton Rouge [where scenes from The Host were shot], from playing a historical figure to one with no reference, based only on the imagination where you can do anything.”
On her use of ballet as an escape: “When I was 6 or 7 I learned that through ballet and its physical demands, I could express emotion and be rewarded for it. It was unconscious, but I felt free and valued.”
On acting school at the age of 23: “I really didn’t have anything to lose; I had savings and gave myself one year. I had the same feeling as in ballet.”
