“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,” she said.
Speaking of the fashion business, Kruger began modelling at a young age which led to her having a special relationship with Chanel.
“I started modelling for them when I was 15,” Kruger revealed. “I know everyone there on a first-name basis. They were the first ones to send me clothes when I started out as an actress. And loyalty is so rare in our business that it make sense to be supportive. It’s not always about money.”
Kruger is constantly making headlines thanks to her relationship with actor Joshua Jackson. But while they might seem like the perfect couple, the actress tells Marie Claire UK that’s not always the case.
“All relationships are hard,” Kruger said. “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?”
