After 18 years in the spotlight, Diane Kruger could be forgiven for wanting to slow down. But at 33, the model turned actress"s career is in the ascendancy, with three movies in production.
And as she posed for a sultry Sixties inspired cover shoot for Allure magazine it was easy to see why.With tousled hair and sultry poses, she channelled screen siren Brigitte Bardot for the shoot."Everyone wants to make her look like old Hollywood, but we thought it would be great to do a Sixties look," said make-up artist Gucci Westman, who worked alongside photographer Michael Thompson.
Inglorious Basterds star Kruger had worked with Thompson several times before, even featuring on the cover of his 2005 book, Michael Thompson: Images.Posing in nothing but a jumper for one shot, the German born actress oozed sex appeal before changing into a magnificent Jason Wu couture gown.
Her boyfriend, actor Joshua Jackson, was keen to see her in action, showing up at the crew break to join her for lunch.The pair, who have been together since 2006, stood with their arms round each whilst surveying the food on offer.When asked if marriage was in their future Kruger said it probably isn"t on the cards.
"I"m not religious, so that aspect of it means nothing," she said. "And don"t get me wrong—I believe in commitment.But out of experience I know if that goes away, no paper you have signed will keep you around."Kruger may have developed her poor opinion of marriage after getting divorced in 2006 from her husband of five years, French actor Guillaume Canet.She met Dawson"s Creek star Jackson shortly after and they have been together ever since.
After a successful modelling career which started in 1992 when she won the Elite Model Managements Look of the Year competition, aged just 15, Kruger said she developed a strict beauty regime."I must be very careful with my skin from modelling and working under hot lights; I break out easily," she said."I never go to sleep without taking off my make-up."Kruger made the successful transition from model to actress in Troy in 2004.
She will next hit the big screen in "Inhale" with Sam Shepard and Rosanna Arquette about a couple who go to dangerous lengths to find a lung donor for their dying daughter.It is due out later this year. She also has 2 films in pre production. "Unknown White Male" and "Special Forces" are both due out in 2011.
