Diane Kruger on Playing 'Bridge' Character with Asperger's: 'I Didn't Want to Be Another Actor Doing Tics'

Diane Kruger shows off her toned body as she heads to her gym for a workout on Sunday (June 1) in Los Angeles.

The 37-year-old The Bridge star opened up about playing a character with Asperger syndrome on the hit FX show.

“I didn’t want to be just an actor doing tics,” Diane told Gold Derby. “Autism Speaks came on board and they introduced me to this young man called Alex Plank, and he has Asperger’s, and he allowed me to ask him all the more intense and difficult questions.”

Watch the entire seventeen minute long interview below!

FYI: Diane is carrying a Fendi bag.
