Ever since she embodied Helen in Brad Pitt’s 2004, Troy, Diane Kruger has found a balance between beauty and strength in her
on-screen roles. She played the book smart archivist Dr. Abigail Chase in
National Treasure, a stunning yet sly actress turned conspirator in Inglorious Basterds, and more recently,
a detective with Asperger syndrome in the FX series, The Bridge.

In her new film, Sky,
the 39-year-old actress is reuniting with her best friend and French filmmaker,
Fabienne Berthaud, with whom she has made two other films. Their third project
stars Kruger as Romy, a woman finally fed up with her drifting marriage and
ready to move through a new world on her own terms. While on her aimless travels through the southwestern
states, she encounters costars Norman Reedus, Lena Dunham, and her husband, Joshua Jackson.
While at the Toronto Film Festival to promote the film’s
premiere, Kruger sat down with ETonline to discuss the problems women face in
Hollywood, working with her husband, and bonding with Dunham.
