Diane Kruger (born Diane Heidkrüger, 15 July 1976 in Algermissen, West Germany) is a German-American supermodel-turned-actress known for her roles in National Treasure, Inglourious Basterds, and Troy, as well as two seasons as the co-lead for The Bridge.



She provides examples of:

  • Pretty in Mink: Has shown up places wearing a few furs, like a brown rabbit bolero jacket.
  • So Beautiful, It's a Curse: Speaking of which, she's something of an example herself, assuming that Typecasting is a curse (and for an actor with serious talent, it is). She looks so perfectly like a classically gorgeous Hollywood Actress that it's difficult for her to be cast credibly as anything else. Tellingly, her two most well-known (serious) English roles for many years were as the aforementioned most beautiful woman in the world and as a professional (and famous) actress in Inglourious Basterds.
