Here, we’ve compiled a list of the best Diane Kruger Quotes. Let’s look at these pieces of wisdom. We definitely have something to learn from them!

I made a French film called ‘Merry Christmas’ which is a very European film. It’s a World War I piece.

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.
Family is becoming more and more important to me.
I like the idea of accessibility, coming from a lower-middle-class background myself, I feel like beauty and products should be accessible to all women over the world.
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.
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.
I would do anything for a part, nearly anything. Being in movies doesn’t mean being pretty.
What I really tried to do with Helen was make her show this sad side of her. She was married off at 16, was so young and living in this castle that can’t leave because of how she looks, and married to a man she hates and three times her age.
I am a better person when I let myself have the time for romance and for love.
I know a lot of people think, ‘She’s so glamorous.’ But that’s really not me at all.
A lot of directors idealize their leading ladies or turn them into these objects of sexuality and beauty.
With modeling, you pose. You want to look your best all the time. With acting, you have to be aware of the camera, but the more you show your imperfections, the better you’re going to be.

Being German, I think we don’t really express a lot of things.

I’m on time even when I try not to be.
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.
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’m very independent. I’m not sure how I’d deal with someone who wanted to be with me 24/7.
I do watch what I eat, but not for weight reasons.
It’s maybe hard to believe, but as a kid I really had a lot of self-doubts. My father was very ill – he was an alcoholic – so there were a lot of things that built up for me. And because I was going to a Catholic school in a small German town, a lot of it was suppressed. I was angry and didn’t know how to get it out.
Yeah, to me, acting is very therapeutic. I get out a lot of anger and frustration.
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.
Modeling is so… not superficial. Well, I guess it is. But it’s boring.
Strong brows give me character.
I find that classical music helps put me in a place that is very calming and allows me to express emotion through my body. I played clarinet as a child, so I guess I have a bit of a musical ear.
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.
