Diane Kruger Says She Had an Identity Crisis at Age 30

Diane Kruger Says She Had an Identity Crisis at Age 30

Diane Kruger looks refreshed on the cover of Town & Country‘s August 2016 issue, on newsstands July 5.

Here is what the 39-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On having an identity crisis at age 30: “I had become arrogant. I had been a model, I spoke three languages, I had a career. I felt I had figured it all out. And then I realized that I was living in this very privileged life in my own bubble that I created and I [didn’t] know anything about what [was] really going on in the world and I [didn’t] ask enough questions… I made a lot of different choices. I cut people out of my life who I felt were enabling my bubble.”

On meeting long-time love, actor Joshua Jackson: “Meeting someone like my partner, who has a very different perspective, who likes to travel in a different way and be open to various experience was so important. I was 30 years old and I was already bored of fancy hotels.”

On feminism and the pay gap in Hollywood: “I have yet to be paid the same amount as a male costar. And absolutely I’ve been labeled a bitch, or difficult to work with, when I’ve spoken up about something. Or it’s ‘She doesn’t really know what she’s talking about.’”

FYI: Diane is wearing a Gucci jacket and shirt with Levi’s shorts on the cover.
