Diane Kruger’s “Inglourious” reunion with Brad Pitt
Diane Kruger and Brad Pitt starred together in the 2004 movie “Troy,” and they reunite on screen in the movie “Inglourious Basterds” opening on Friday. But the reunion comes with a bloody twist, a moment more akin to a Freddy Krueger movie than a Diane Kruger’s flick, when Pitt’s U.S. Army lieutenant character sticks his finger in a fresh bullet wound in her leg.
It’s squeamish stuff, in line with the movie itself, which is high on over-the-top violence and the sometimes gruesome irony that is inherent in much of Tarantino’s work. But Kruger isn’t sore about the painful scene, and she has nothing but good things to say about Pitt and Tarantino.
“When you work with Brad, it’s a lot of fun,” Kruger told Reuters. “He’s a great playmate and you can really bounce off him.”
As for Tarantino, the actress said that she and most actors are big fans of the director.
“All his movies are performance-driven and he writes incredibly well for women,” she said. “I loved Pam Grier in ‘Jackie Brown.’
