Will Diane Kruger Practice Kissing Women for Her Next Role? 'My Boyfriend Josh Would Certainly Like That!'

02/12/2016 at 06:15 PM ET

Diane Kruger is always a treat to see at fashion week — both because she always looks so good and because she makes us laugh. And she combined the two with her candid answer to our question about whether her warm coat at the Fiji Water-sponsored Jason Wu show (during a frigid Fashion Week Friday) was more out of necessity than out of style. “Oh, my God, no s–t,” she laughed, before apologizing for her language.

Not that she needs to — she’s a New Yorker now, at least for another few months. “We live in the East Village,” she said. “I [generally] don’t live here, I live in L.A. really. I’m a New Yorker now, but I’m going to do a movie with Ellen Page starting in March.”

That film, in which she plays Page’s lover, will mark two firsts for her: Her first time working with the actress, and her first time kissing a woman, full stop. “We play lovers, so we will get to know each other very well,” she says, adding, “I’ve never kissed a woman.” Does she plan to practice before filming starts up? “My boyfriend Josh [Jackson] would certainly like that,” she said, laughing.

Kruger was joined at the show by first-time Wu attendee Jennifer Hudson, who was wowed by the collection. “I loved the show,” she told People afterward. “I loved everything, and I’m glad I got introduced to something new. And I saw some nice hairstyles, too. And the music was amazing!”

The day before, Hudson had landed a coveted invite to the coveted Yeezy Season 3 show, but missed most of the excitement as she left early: “I had to get to The Color Purple album release party!”

Wu, who was also supported in the front row by Jaime King (“He’s one of my best friends, and I love him so much,” she said), spoke to People after the show about his many beautifully-dressed muses. “I made the show immaculate, because I wanted these immaculately dressed women filling the room,” he said. “Diane Kruger is always such a muse to me, a good friend. It’s always clear there is a lot of her in all my collections.”

And having Hudson in the front row? “It’s about having different types of the Jason woman out in full support,” he said. “And that was really special for me today.”

Are you excited for Diane’s new movie?

Always been jealous of this person…….as she gets to kiss and cuddle the gorgeous Joshua Jackson. Liked him since Dawsons Creek years. So as a result I cannot stand her. Sure she is very nice really.

Rose on

Mary, don’t be jealous of her. Diane is just honestly a not very nice person. She uses Josh and their relationship for publicity all the time to promote and bring attention to her projects. Here is a good example of her doing it again. Also, she’s not getting papped everywhere in NYC because she’s not staying at her papped hotel. So, of course she decides to tell the press the area where they are living. She craves attention and can’t help herself.

Rose, you have a good point. When they stay at the Bowery they are photographed non-stop. Now, you don’t see them any more and she can’t stand it. I loved them together, when I thought she meant it and actually cared about him. The Norman Reedus thing didn’t actually bother me, but her reaction to it really did. She tried to play that up. “Yeah, I’m cheating with a star from a hot tv show.” And she started posting songs and movies about infidelity all over her Instagram (A Woman is a Woman, indeed). Anything to get the press to pick up her posts. Meanwhile, Josh was being gentlemanly and indicating that he couldn’t wait to get back to her from the Phillipines (even though the rumors about her affair were rampant). She didn’t care about how HE looked in the press at all. She was having a great time. Too bad they’re in such a one-sided relationship. I mean in 2012, I think people said they saw HIM in a club being flirty with some women, but you better believe he wouldn’t be teasing about it on social media. He respects her more than that. With her, I feel she’s jealous of him more than anything else. She seems to be competing with him. Granted, his play isn’t very good, but if January Jones had been in a play she’d be promoting it to high heaven. Her partner is in a play and she can’t even bother to mention it, except coolly on opening night. Obviously, they went through a difficult time, which is normal for a long relationship. What’s NOT normal is the way she tried to capitalize on their problems. They make a beautiful couple and I love to see pictures of them, but I can hardly stand to look at her after the whole game she’s been playing the last three months. She liked the rumors that they were estranged because of her hot affair and she played them up.
