Diane Kruger’s latest film left her so depressed she took up smoking
Diane Kruger says shooting her latest movie, “In the Fade,” made her feel so depressed that she took up smoking.
The actress — who plays a German mother who loses her husband and 6-year-old child in a neo-Nazi terrorist attack — said at a Q&A on Monday: “[I] lost 7 pounds . . . I felt like I was drowning in grief, drowning in the gray weather, and drowning in the story. I picked up smoking.”
Kruger added, “Grief is a weird thing, and I felt a heavy responsibility to find the truth and to honor the people that this has happened to.” She said that researching and filming the movie “changed my life forever.”
