Diane: (refuting rumors she is pregnant in May 2008): I don't have any plans for a family yet. I can imagine that if I have children in the future I'll completely immerse myself in motherhood.
Diane Kruger: I was fascinated with history. I am very well traveled and I make it a point to always go to the monuments and read up about it.
Diane Kruger: (on what changed after doing "Troy") It certainly has opened up many doors work-wise and I get a lot more job offers. I think the most difficult time starts now because you have the choice to make. [To] choose the good projects and turn down or hold out for the good parts.
