Diane Kruger is a famous person.
She’s constantly hounded by paparazzi.
She’s always front row at ANY fashion show.
There is a steady stream of news written about her on any given day.
She’s on the cover of A LOT of magazines.
But really though, who is Diane Kruger?
We simply can't name a single movie that she’s been in. You know, where we’re like, “Oh right, HER.”
She was Helen in Troy.
That was a big movie and a HUGE part, but that was in 2004, half of you reading this post were like five when that movie came out.
There’s no way any of you are like, “OMG I LOVE DIANE KRUGER FROM ‘TROY.’ NOT ONLY DO I REMEMBER WATCHING HER IN THAT DECADE-OLD FILM, BUT I ALSO COMMITTED HER NAME TO MEMORY!”
So, it’s NOT that movie that we all know her from.
She was in the first part of Wicker Park.
But then Rose Byrne assumes her identity and she’s not even in the rest of the movie.
Oh, she was the love interest in National Treasure.
Not like anyone remembers anything from that movie other than it's about Nicolas Cage and treasure.
She was in all these movies in the early aughts.
Ten bucks to the first person who has seen ANY of these movies.
So, we still haven’t pinpointed what we know her from.
Because you’re a liar if you’re like, “I love Diane Kruger, you know, the ‘Wicker Park’ actress.”
Oh, she had that TINY role in Inglourious Basterds.
You remember that scene with Michael Fassbender where she played Twenty Questions or whatever?
And then POST-Inglourious Basterds, she was in a whole other crop of movies we’ve never heard of.
Okay, well, maybe she isn’t known for her acting roles.
Who is she dating?
She’s been with her partner Joshua Jackson for years.
Do we need to explain who Joshua Jackson is?
HE WAS ON “DAWSON’S CREEK”!
That show ended 11 years ago though!
That’s all fine, but Diane Kruger dating a '90s TV actor does not explain why we know who she is.
DIANE KRUGER, WHAT DO WE KNOW YOU FROM!?
The world may never know.
