Her good acting will come out in Tarantino I find, though she’s nothing too special and just a pretty face. I’ve seen her only in
Troy and National Treasure. Both pretty terrible films but she was perfect as Helen of Troy. Not so much in the latter which was REALLY bad, Troy was okay.
Her character in IB doesn’t appear for too long, as far as the first draft of the script is concerned anyways, but she certainly has a pivotal role and next to Shosana the biggest female role in the whole film.
And yea, she’s gorgeous. Did I mention that already?
She was “okay” in Troy. Troy was a good movie, not Wolfgang’s best picture but he redeemed my confidence with the Directors Cut of that flick. Which on Blu Ray is quite simplly, fantastic. I challenge you to watch the Director’s Cut. Hector and Achilles were great characters to watch in a “real events” type of setting, although I’d prefer a more “Clash of the Titans” take of the story I was able to appreciate the flick.
As far as National Treasure goes, I thought it was okay/average “Disney” adventure flick. However, Kruger was horrifying to watch. She spent most the movie complaining, sputtering weak sauce lines sounding like a 5 year old that wants their toy back. She is definitely a pretty face though. Not sure how she’d work with QT’s dialogue, cause quite frankly, I’ve yet to see/hear anything fromt he movie.
Why put someone as world class as Streep in the same sentence as One Trick Pony Jolie? Bizarre. Especially when there are better actresses out there who can be mentioned in the same sentence as Steep, like Ellen Burstyn, Cate Blanchett, Marion Cotillard, Amy Ryan, Tilda Swinton, Naomi Watts, Hillary Swank, Michelle Williams. But I suppose some actresses get more ‘face’ coverage in the tabloids… it can cloud a person’s judgement.
In answer to the op’s question, I’ve never seen Diane in anything to judge.
I was thinking the same thing.
