Former ballerina, model and now actress, Diane Kruger certainly has what it takes! 

Born and raised in Germany, she originally wanted to be a professional ballerina. She even auditioned successfully for the Royal Ballet Society in London, but after an injury, she moved to Paris and set her eye on the modeling world. Her career propelled when, at the age of 16, she was a finalist in Elite’s ‘Look of the Year’ competition

After moving back to Germany, she continued to be a successful model throughout the ‘90s. She also became fluent in English and French and even learned a bit of Russian for her role in the film ‘Le brigades du Tigre’ in 2006. All this led her to go on to study acting at the Cours Florent in Paris where she won the Classe Libre award for best actor of the year; launching her career in Tinseltown, with her big screen debut was in Wicker Park opposite cutie Josh Hartnett

Diane married French actor and director Guillaume Canet in 2001 and stared in his directorial debut ‘Mon Idole’ several years later, however they divorced in 2006. But that same year she started dating fellow actor Joshua Jackson and they have been together ever since!

Unsurprisingly, People magazine named Diane as one of the ’50 Most Beautiful People in the World’ in 2004, having starred in films such as Troy with Orlando Bloom and Eric Bana, and the National Treasure movies with Nicolas Cage. She also hosted the 60th Annual Cannes Film Festival in 2007 making her the first German to do so.

Recently she’s been in ‘Inglorious Bastards,’ co-starring Brad Pitt and directed by Quentin Tarantino, plus she’s also to star in the upcoming film ‘Mr. Nobody’ with Rhys Ifans and Jared Leto, which is to be released later this year.
