Diane Kruger has a new couture-heavy layout in February's Madame Figaro. While she's distressingly dressed in these, I do enjoy looking at that lovely face of hers. She's definitely got that Arian ideal thing going on there, which has some disturbing undertones when you think about how much Hitler and his team of psychos would have admired her back in the day.
Thankfully we've got her here with us today, though I do admit that I didn't think much of her the first time I saw her way back in 2004's TROY. Sure, she's gorgeous, as anyone playing Helen of Troy should be. Yet her acting was rather 2-dimensional and wooden (although her nude scenes in the Director's Cut inspired a different kind of wood ). She did distinguish herself later in her performance as Bridget von Hammersmark in Quentin Tarantino's INGLORIOUS BASTERDS, which is when I really started to take notice of her, beyond her obvious physical attributes.
Looks like she's going to playing Marie Antoinette here soon, so she's certainly riding that historical beauty train to the bank. Good for her.
