Diane Kruger Drops F-Bomb Over Inglourious Basterds Audition, And Quentin Tarantino Not Wanting To See Her

Along with her time as Dr. Abigail Chase in the National Treasure movies, Diane Kruger is arguably best known for playing Bridget von Hammersmark in Inglourious Basterds. That role in Quentin Tarantino’s 2009 movie netted the actress numerous accolades, but it wasn’t easy for Kruger to join the cast. In fact, Kruger recently dripped an f-bomb about her difficult Inglourious Basterds audition, including the fact that Tarantino wasn’t even interested in seeing her.

While discussing on the podcast Reign with Josh Smith how as she’s gotten older, she’s had numerous “fuck you” moments when it comes to people trying to fit her into one type of categorical box, Diane Kruger admitted that there have been times where it’s felt “unfair” that she’s not where she wants to be. She then recalled the hoops she jumped through just to audition for Inglourious Basterds, saying:

Even for Inglourious Basterds, he auditioned everyone. He didn’t want to audition me because he saw a movie that I was in that he didn’t like. So he didn’t believe in me from the get-go. Literally, the only reason he auditioned me is because there was no one left to audition. I had to pay for my own flight from New York to go to Germany because he wouldn’t see me in the US. I had to jump through all these hoops that definitely put my nose in a joint. But I was like ‘You know what? Fuck him!’ I’m going to do that and prove to him that I could do it. And thankfully it all worked out. But sometimes it just seems so unfair, and you’ve got to change the narrative.
