Transcript for Diane Kruger says she got a tattoo after losing bet to 'In the Fade' director
Back now with the very talented actress Diane Kruger. Getting a lot of award buzz for "In the fade" and I got to say, Diane, it's great to have you here. Thank you. Give it up for Diane. Thank you. It's so much to congratulate you. The movie nominated for a golden globe. Yes. And you, you just won best actress at Cannes film festival. I did. Amazing. Thank you. But saying that I want to go back and say you never thought the movie would get into the film festival. Yeah, well, you know, when you make a movie you don't anticipate stuff like that. And my director who likes to have a drink after filming was really happy one day and said we're -- this is such a great day and he said I think we'll go to Cannes with this movie and I said, yeah, right. I lost the bet and had to get a tattoo. You got it. Went through. It is an anchor. It had to be an anchor because it's the symbol of Hamburg where we shot and wanted it right here because my character has it in the movie and he has it so it took me a lot to just get it on -- my mother was super excited. Really, you waited till 40 to get a tattoo. That's awesome. It was worth the wait and worth it for this movie. Because this movie has been very -- has been incredible. Getting great reviews and we have a clip of this movie and what it is, you are a mother who when you're upset. A bomb has killed your husband and son and you are fighting for the justice in all of this. We'll take a look. Here's "In the fade" with Diane Kruger. Get off me. Get off me. Now, obviously very emotional and people said you were likely yam Nissen in "Taken" but as a female but also this role, this movie is in German. Yeah. You're German but this is your first movie in German. Why is that? I don't know. I mean I left 25 years ago and so I wasn't an actor when I left, I guess, you know, I don't know. So now are you -- how was it for you to go back and incorporate into movies into the language you grew up with? Yeah, it was amazing. I felt like I was in my place, you know, I reconnected with my roots, you know, the story is based on true events about a neo-nazi attack. In Germany we have lots of Turkish immigrants and a lot of stigma with white German girls marrying Turkish men. And so what happened was, yeah, there was a neo-nazi bomb attack and they died and they were immediately found guilty and thought that,ing, they must -- they're Turkish, they must be in on it, the Turkish mafia. Stuff like that. I tell you what, the movie, all these accolades for a good reason, a little oscars coming up soon. We'll see how that goes for you as well. Wishing you the best and the movie is "In the fade" and hits theaters on December 27th. Diane Kruger, everybody.
