Why Diane Kruger's 'Farewell, My Queen' Costumes Were Sexy to Joshua Jackson

Diane Kruger loved playing ill-fated French Queen Marie Antoinette in her latest film, Farewell, My Queen — but she doesn’t have a hankering to be the next Duchess of Cambridge.

“I do like the royals and I definitely watched their wedding,” she told PEOPLE Monday at a screening of the film in N.Y.C. But, she smiled, “I think it’s something we can dream about in our society. I myself have never wanted to be in an ivory tower — I gotta be honest.”

Still, the outfits she wore as a queen in the movie certainly impressed her boyfriend, actor Joshua Jackson.

“I definitely made the effort to go see her in the full queen regalia. It’s a one-time thing in an actor’s life. It was sexy — period, full stop,” Jackson told reporters about Kruger’s opulent costumes. “I mean, it was kind of a kinky fetish thing with the wigs and the corsets,” he continued. “I don’t know how [people] survived that period. Foreplay must’ve been a sonofabitch. It takes a nation of millions to get those things on and off.”

After the screening, the pair headed over to the after-party at the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in New York, where Kruger basked in praise for her performance, and Jackson stayed nearby, the consummate supportive boyfriend.

What an interesting Costume Diane Kruger wore, glad she had a great time playing Marie Antoinette, and that her Boyfriend, Joshua Jackson, was so supportive!

… That’s too much information.

I love her and I love him. I’ve been following both of them for many many years and they both are class acts (which, as you all surely know, is rare in Hollywood these days). They seem like a great couple because he’s pretty goofy and she comes across a bit more serious but they balance each other out. I love that they don’t flaunt every detail of their lives but they support one another in all of their endeavors. It will be interesting to see what he does after Fringe and I always look forward to seeing Diane’s new projects. I think this movie will be fantastic.

Marie Antoinette was not French, she was Austrian. If she had been French, a French director would have NEVER cast a German actress in the role. Neither was she Marie Antoinette of France, she was Marie Antoinette (of Austria), Queen of France.
