Actress Diane Kruger is the face of Chanel's new line of skincare products.
With a body like hers, you'd think German beauty Diane Kruger was a total gym rat.
The Bridge actress tells DuJour magazine that she can't stand hitting the gym to keep in shape.
"I'm not really athletic. I hate going to the gym," she said taking a moment from her recent Chanel skincare shoot to chat with the mag. "Exercising only makes sense if I get pleasure out of it. But pleasure comes from real life, not from staying in a bubble. Whenever I get the chance, I go hiking."
So, that's how she does it. Good, because we were about to get majorly envious if she achieved her amazing abs without any sort of workout!
Kruger had more to say about beauty, aging and her friendship with Karl Lagerfeld.
How she makes herself feel beautiful: "My experience as a model taught me the right tips and tricks to enhance my features, so I prefer to do my own makeup. I want above all to look like myself. Feeling beautiful is a private emotion. This helps me put things in perspective, accept myself as I am and no longer undertake an insatiable quest for perfection. In the end, this makes me a lot happier because, like everyone else, I have my own share of complexes."
More beautiful at 20 or now?: "Actually, I would say that I'm kinder to myself. Even though I loved being 20, I'm not nostalgic about my beauty at that time. However, I am nostalgic about all of my first times: the first time that I kissed someone, the first time that I saw New York.... I realized that I had to live fully in the moment and open myself to others or life would pass me by. If I'm happier now, then I'm more beautiful than I was before."
On her bond with Chanel head Lagerfeld: "My first shoot as a model was for Karl Lagerfeld! I immediately fell under the charm of his kindness and his sense of humor, and, of course, our German roots brought us closer. This happy coincidence gave us an inseparable connection."
