Diane Kruger appreciates her boyfriend’s sage professional guidance.
The German model-turned-actress has been dating actor Joshua Jackson for seven years.
Diane’s acting career is now flourishing and she is currently starring as Detective Sonya Cross in new TV crime series The Bridge.
Joshua worked in the entertainment industry for over 21 years and the Dawson’s Creek actor often provides Diane with sound advice on how to maintain a career in show business.
“He definitely alerted me to mistakes that he made and hopefully I can avoid,” she told Us Weekly magazine.
Diane jokes that not all of her professional conversations with Joshua end on a light note.
Apparently Joshua often gets jealous of how much creative license she has with her work.
“He hates me because my experience has been like, I’m home for dinner every night, I don’t have to work every day, FX [network] wants me to think creatively,” she laughed. “He’s been on network television and it was very different.”
“It’s been super creative for me and he kinda hates me for it!”
Overall the couple are extremely supportive of each other.
According to Diane life at home is better than ever.
“He just finished Fringe so he’s home and I’m going to go make a movie in September,” she said. “It’s good!”
Diane is divorced from actor-and-director Guillaume Canet and speculation is rife Joshua is planning to propose to her very soon.
She has spoken before about why her relationship with Joshua has stood the test of time.
“All relationships are hard. It doesn’t matter what job you have, or how famous or miserable or poor you are. It’s about commitment. The hard part is the timing. When you meet someone, are you ready to make them your number-one priority,” she explained to the UK edition of Marie Claire magazine.
