"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," Kruger explained. "I was 30 years old and I was already bored of fancy hotels."
The Infiltrator actress has been dating Jackson, 38, since 2006 and she revealed earlier this year that the two had finally moved in together, calling her relocation to New York a "major commitment."
Kruger also opened up to the magazine about having an identity crisis at the age of 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," she said. "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," she continued. "I cut people out of my life who I felt were enabling my bubble."
Now, does the couple have any plans to have kids anytime soon? Kruger has talked about it in the past, while Jackson hilariously said he wants Dawson's Creek reruns off the air before he has kids.
