This Is What Joshua Jackson Really Loves About Diane Kruger
Confidence is sexy.
Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger often find their names on lists advertising "Hollywood's Best-Dressed Couples." The recognition is always deserved, but when The Hollywood Reporter recently asked the actress if she pays attention to sartorial-related praise, she confidently relayed that it's not something she obsesses over. Like, at all.
On Tuesday night outside West Hollywood restaurant Ysabel — the host of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and InStyle's Golden Globes celebration presented by FIJI Water — the actor confirmed his girlfriend's perspective on all the good press. But he then went a step further and connected it to why he finds her so damn sexy.
"One of the most attractive things to me about Diane is how confident she is in herself as a woman and in her beauty, and how much self respect she has and the way that manifests itself in the way she dresses," explained the actor, who currently stars on Showtime's delicious series The Affair, of Kruger whom he's been dating for nearly a decade. "There’s a ton of pressure on women — particularly young women — to conform to a certain sense of what is beautiful or what is fashionable. For Diane, having gone through the modeling side of the business in her youth, her fashion sense is a true expression of her own desire and her own style. I find that tremendously sexy. She knows that she’s well-dressed, but she doesn't have to obsess about it because it comes out of her organically."
That's no easy feat. Also difficult is walking the red carpet with one of Hollywood's best-dressed stars, but since they make so many lists, it's obvious Jackson is doing just fine. "I certainly pay more attention to how I dress now than I did a decade ago before we started dating so I would be lying if I said I wasn’t conscious of it," he admitted.
(And for the rest of us who like to pay attention to well-dressed men making their way down the carpet at Hollywood events like the one Tuesday night, for the record, Jackson was wearing an Ermenegildo Zegna suit.)
