Diane Kruger: “When I Was 30, I Realized I Was an Idiot”
Diane Kruger sure has beauty, but if you ask her, she's a total idiot.
In the August issue of Marie Claire UK (via Just Jared), the 36-year-old stunner opens up about how she's come to realize that she doesn't have all the answers she once thought she did.
"For a long time I felt that I was so accomplished, ‘Oh I speak three languages, I travel the world, I’ve seen so many things,'" she said. "But when I turned 30 I realized I was an idiot. I didn’t know sh-- about anything.”
One thing she has been certain of is the value of her relationship with fellow actor Joshua Jackson, whom she has been dating for eight years. "All relationships are hard. It doesn’t matter what job you have, or how famous or miserable or poor you are. It’s about commitment. The hard part is the timing. When you meet someone, are you ready to make them your number-one priority? I’m grateful that I met a person who feels the same not just about me, but about our relationship.”
As for the fleeting nature of her profession, Diane says she sees the bright side. "You can be as cynical as you want about filmmaking or fashion, but at the end of the day fashion makes people dream, it makes women look beautiful, and it can be a wonderful creative outlet.”
