Watch our exclusive video interview with Diane Kruger, star of The Host, who talks sci-fi, Twilight and Robert Pattinson
Who knew that style icon actress Diane Kruger was such a Twilight fan? The German star made the revelation during an exclusive video interview with Marie Claire to promote her new film, The Host.
The movie is is an adaptation of Twilight author Stephenie Meyer's 2008 book of the same name, which features parasitic aliens called 'Souls' who have invaded Earth and have begun to possess the minds of humans.
Talking about the Twilight connection, Diane said: 'I love Twilight, I have to say, it totally touches into my inner teenage girl. I was totally team Edward!'
On Meyer, she added: 'I think she always tries to have a philosophical idea behind her films. She writes about very big emotions like love and romance, but then there's always the question about us humans, our species, our flaws, and that what makes us great may also be our downfall.'
In the eagerly-anticipated film, which hits UK cinemas tomorrow (29th March), Diane plays one of the mysterious characters called The Seekers, with Irish actress Saoirse Ronan, and heart-throbs Max Irons and Jake Abel completing the starry cast.
'I was sent the script, and I've been looking to be in a sci-fi movie forever, I got to say, I'm a huge fan of sci-fi,' Diane says. 'Andrew Niccol (director of The Host) is one of my favourite directors, Gattaca (his 1997 film) is definitely one of my favourite movies.'
