Diane Kruger Videos
Diane Kruger gives one of the most intriguing screen performances of this year. In Inglourious Basterds, she breathes life into actress-turned-double-agent Bridget Von Hammersmark. In a character turn that'd make Hitchcock's head spin, Kruger is playing an actress playing a spy. The stunning Kruger manages to pull it all off flawlessly too—giving every aspect of Bridget equal attention.
"It's fun to play that kind of actress," she explains. "The '40s were such a fabulous time for women. When you watch movies from the '40s, acting was different back then. Bridget's a commanding presence. The most fun part was getting down and dirty with the boys. You get to see the real Bridget and you get to see her unravel."
Kruger's got quite an eclectic musical palette too.
She gave ARTISTdirect.com an exclusive look at her playlist in this feature. Check out Diane's playlist in the video below and don't miss her in Inglourious Basterds this Friday August 21st.
Diane Kruger's Playlist:
1. David Bowie — "Cat People (Putting Out the Fire)"
That David Bowie song is on my playlist. It's fantastic. It stays with you.
2. Nina Simone
I love Nina Simone.
I really like Coldplay. I'm a big music fan. Other than heavy metal, I can deal with everything [Laughs].
I use classical music every time I have to do an emotional scene. There's a sonata by Bach that I really like. It always makes me cry.
