After a while of speculation and wondering, Norman Reedus has officially and publicly confirmed his relationship with Diane Kruger. They finally let the world know they are a couple. The couple was first linked romantically, last December when she was seen visiting Norman’s photography exhibition in Paris.
They were spotted in New York on March 21, as they were enjoying a night out. They couldn’t have looked happier as they walked holding hands after leaving Soho bar The Ship at 2 am. Diane and The Walking Dead star could not stop smiling and holding hands while speaking to random people on the street.
So the question is “Who is Diane Kruger?”
You’ll probably recognize her when you see her face. Diane has been a model and actress for over 25 years. She was born in West Germany, July 15, 1976. As a kid, she dreamt of being a ballerina and was admitted to the prestigious Royal Ballet School in London, England. But soon her ballet career ended, because of severe times of leg injury. She moved to Paris and at the age of 15, she started her modeling career. Diane made a successful transition into acting in 2002, when she was featured in the French television film, The Piano Player opposite Dennis Hopper and Christopher Lambert.
Into Hollywood, she broke when she portrayed “the face that launched a thousand ships” in the epic Troy, where she co-starred alongside Brad Pitt, Orlando Bloom, and numerous other stars. That was in 2004. After that, she has been in a number of movies and television shows like National Treasure and its sequel, National Treasure: Book of Secrets. Her most recent role was in the 2016 crime drama, The Infiltrator. Diane Kruger starred next to Bryan Cranston.
Another intriguing question is her Past Relationships.
Diane Kruger was married once and had one long-term relationship. She married the French actor Guillaume Canet in September of 2001. Unfortunately, the marriage didn’t last long, and they got divorced five years later. They divorced friendly and the reason is that they were both busy with their careers and had no time to see each other. Kruger has very fond memories of Guillaume, that in an interview with The Telegraph, in 2009, she said:
“We married when I was done with drama school. It was pure love – true love. It was wonderful. He’s a great guy. So sweet. I have fond memories. It was just the end. We lived out the story we were meant to live together. There are no hard feelings. I love Guillaume. I will always love him and I think he’d say the same. It was just over.”
Kruger met Joshua Jackson, later that year. Joshua is best known for his roles in Dawson’s Creek, and Fringe. They were a couple for 10 years until their split in 2016. They never got married, because neither of them had faith in it anymore.
“Without sounding pessimistic, I learned that I don’t believe in marriage. I believe in a commitment that you make in your heart. There’s no paper that will make you stay. A guy friend of mine said, and it made a lot of sense, that people should get married at the end of the road, not the beginning”- Diane said in an interview with Glamour magazine, in 2011.
As a primary reason why she believes this is her failed marriage with Canet. Also, must have had an impact on her the cause that her father abandoned her family when she was 13.
Even though Diane does not have kids she has expressed her desire for them in previous interviews.
