Zitat des Tages von Diane Kruger:
It must have been so impossible to think about it and dare to do that, so they feel compassionate for her. I don't think the movie would work otherwise.
It's quite a famous story that takes place on Christmas Eve, and the Germans, French, and Scottish are trying to make peace one night and they bury their dead and they play football. I play a German opera singer, in German, which I never have so I am really excited about that.
Her beauty didn't do her any good and she couldn't use it in any positive way or manipulative way. I just hope that people will look and see and believe in that hope of love, that hope of freedom, even if it was just for a limited time.
The only song I can sing is 'Lady in Red' so that must tell you how great it must have been.
I do give myself a break in my personal life but I think in work, if you don't push yourself you get bored and want to do something else.
I don't know how you prepare for something like that. I cannot imagine living in a fishbowl like that. I don't live here so I don't know it will be that bad anyway because I live in Paris and we don't have that sort of phenomenon there. So I don't know, we'll see what happens.
I think Charlize Theron is just as good when she is looking really pretty in a movie as when she gains 10 pounds and puts on a nose. I applaud her - good for her that she doesn't care. But she's just as good, whether she's pretty or not.
I would do anything for a part, nearly anything. Being in movies doesn't mean being pretty.
For exercise, I tend to like the outdoors. In Paris, I rent a bike in the street and cycle around, and in L.A. I live up in the hills so I go hiking a lot. I like to stay fit by being generally active.
I play a curator, the most American part you can think of. My work is to protect the Declaration of Independence. I work at the National Archives in Washington.
If you're with someone who makes you happy in your personal life, then you're happy with where you're at.
Looking back at it now, I really feel like it was a gift because I don't know if I have the talent to become a prima ballerina. It's such a hard job to have. I don't have any regrets about it.
I see myself raising my children in Europe, probably in Paris.
Being German, I think we don't really express a lot of things.
I have three goddaughters - I'm not sure why they trust me, because I have no experience with children - but I try.
But quite honestly, personally, I was much more concerned - I mean, there's not much I can do about my appearance obviously other than spending four hours in hair and makeup.
I'm not one of those women who thinks beauty is a curse.
I love Nic Cage. He was so much fun to work with.
I don't obsess about my weight. I just know I've got to watch it when my pants feel tight.
Life is more important than work.
I grew up loving actresses or actors who were very classy but who seemed a little bit mysterious because you couldn't grasp what they're really thinking. I mean, Grace Kelly always looked impossibly glamorous, yet you could always see there was something behind her eyes.
I really feel like the first day I went to drama school and I went up on stage, that I found my vocation. It's kind of a cliched thing to say but I really feel like it was what I was meant to do.
Strong brows give me character.
I know a lot of people think, 'She's so glamorous.' But that's really not me at all.
Critics can be harsh and I think it's going to take me a long time to make people see what I have inside of me and that I really put my guts into movies and that I'm not superficial and that I'm not just a pretty face.
You always have to challenge yourself or else you get soft. Right?
Orlando's a really cool guy. They hired him for 'Lord of the Rings' out of drama school. He's very new at this still and doesn't have a lot of experience. So we were in this together and we've tried to help each other out. We felt very equal which was good.
Every actor you learn from, take something from everyone - big actor or not. Whether they're big movie stars or not doesn't really matter.
The ultimate art form of fashion is couture. I completely geek out when it comes to couture. It shows fashion as it used to be. I don't know how many people can actually afford the clothes, but in a way, that's beside the point.
I'm very independent. I'm not sure how I'd deal with someone who wanted to be with me 24/7.
In between films I like to travel and hope to visit every continent before I become a mother.
Berlin is still going through a transition since the Cold War - both in what used to be East and West Berlin. I can still sense the confusion and the struggle for identity there in the streets. There's a pulse to it.
A lot of directors idealize their leading ladies or turn them into these objects of sexuality and beauty.
What counts in Hollywood is box office. It doesn't really matter what people think of you as an actor because, as long as you have been in a movie that has made money, you will always get another job.
When I was younger - it might be a romantic idea - I always thought I might go crazy.
I'm not a snob.
