Diane Kruger on How Partner Joshua Jackson Changed Her Life


(ABC) -- By the time she was 30, Diane Kruger was already going through an identity crisis.

Having left her native Germany at 15 to become a model in Paris, she told Town & Country magazine, "I had become arrogant. I had been a model, I spoke three languages, I had a career. I felt I had figured it all out. And then I realized that I was living in this very privileged life in my own bubble that I created and I [didn’t] know anything about what [was] really going on in the world and I [didn’t] ask enough questions."

At that moment, the "Inglourious Basterds" actress decided to make some "different choices. I cut people out of my life who I felt were enabling my bubble."

Soon after divorcing French actor Guillaume Canet in 2006, Kruger began dating American actor Joshua Jackson, 38, and her life changed.

"Meeting someone like my partner, who has a very different perspective, who likes to travel in a different way and be open to various experiences was so important," she said. "I was 30 years old and I was already bored of fancy hotels."

Now 39, Kruger recently made the move to New York to live with "The Affair" star.

"I just moved this week. I need to unpack and buy some house stuff, like candles and books," she told Net-a-Porter's The Edit back in March. "[Moving here] was a major commitment. That's a big step into adulthood for me, to allow that time for someone else out of my time."
