Diane Kruger opened up to Flare magazine about the many aspects of her complicated life.
The 36-year-old actress spoke about what it was like to decide to start modeling. “People just thought I was — not turning into a prostitute, but kind of. Everyone was furious. My dad was furious. My school thought I was making the biggest mistake of my life. I knew this was not the life that was meant for me,” she reveals. “I was really good. I certainly went out, but I didn’t drink, I didn’t do drugs. I made money—I could pay for a nice coat. Life was amazing.”
She continued, “When you first start out as an actress, especially when you come from a modeling background, you want to prove that [you’re] capable of emotional depths. Now, having been around the block for 10 years really, it felt like the timing was right. I’m not scared to be light-hearted anymore.”
