Diane Kruger Talks Royal Role, 18th Century Attire » Gossip - Having just seen limited release last week, Diane Kruger spoke with W magazine about her role in "Farewell, My Queen".
The German actress plays Marie Antoinette in the Benoît Jacquot directed picture which focuses on the relationship between Antoinette and one of her readers during the final days of the French Revolution.
As for how she went about getting ready for the royal role, Miss Kruger explained, "She’s kind of borderline schizophrenic in this film, which was really difficult to portray because the movie is about her, but you don’t see her all that often. No scene has a direct link with the next; every scene was so extreme in all directions, so you try your best to make her as nuanced and as different as you can."
The 36-year-old also dished about the elaborate 18th century attire worn in the French picture, saying, "It’s a little complicated for my taste! It was very restricting; I was a little worried about it in the beginning and was like, 'How am I ever going to act with this stuff?' But of all the periods, I’m most inspired by the fifties or late forties."
