Diane Kruger and Golden Globes after-party
Woman of many talents: It was a big moment for Diane, with her movie, In The Fade, named as winner of the Best Motion Picture - Foreign Language Golden Globe
Diane recently admitted taking on the role was a life-changing experience and affected her more than she could have ever thought possible.
She explained in an interview with Modern Luxury magazine's January issue: 'I’ve been very good up until this point to separate my work from my everyday life.
'This was the first time it wasn’t possible. I didn’t expect [the film] to affect me this amount... it’s changed me forever.
'I definitely started to feel like I was drowning in their grief after witness[ing] that much pain. I felt like I was in it.

A galaxy of Hollywood greats descended on the Golden Globes red carpet on Sunday to honor the best in film and television as 2018 awards season officially kicked off.
The color black was chosen as a simple way to show solidarity with the victims of sexual harassment and assault and make a statement against a pervasive culture of misconduct, brought to light by the downfall of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.

The ceremony at the Beverly Hilton - the first for late night NBC funnyman Seth Meyers as host - is not as reliable at predicting Oscars glory as the galas held by Hollywood's acting, producing and directing unions.
But it remains one of the most high-profile and glamorous - not to mention boozy - events of the awards calendar and tends to generate more headlines for tipsy tributes, daring gowns and wacky tuxedos.
Big Little Lies and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri were the big winners of the night, picking up four prizes each.
