Diane Kruger confessed she does believe there is life beyond our planet as she attended the premiere of new film The Host in Los Angeles.

The German actress - who plays an evil alien who hunts and possesses human bodies - looked out of this world as she walked the red carpet with boyfriend Joshua Jackson, wearing a little black dress with sequinned details and sheer panels by Thakoon.

Diane admitted: "I definitely believe that we're not the only form of life in this vast universe. Yes."

The film is based on the book by Twilight author Stephenie Meyer and stars Red Riding Hood's Max Irons and The Lovely Bones' Saoirse Ronan as two of the few remaining humans left alive on earth, who fall in love as they fight for survival.

But hunky blond British actor Max doesn't want to be compared to Twilight's Robert Pattinson.

He said: "I saw an article in the New York Times which said 'which of these 12 films is going to be the next Twilight?' All of them have come out and none of them were. They were all their own films with their own audience and their own appeal.

"I think The Host is a standalone film from Twilight. It's a science fiction story of human survival. Yes it has the romance, but I think it's for a different audience."

Saoirse added: "I think the story is a bit more complex. It's very much about the world, as much as it's about the romance. It's very much about what is good, what is bad, and what is right for the planet."

Diane revealed she had been attracted to the film because she was a big fan of Twilight and added: "I've never really played the baddie."

Aquarius:

Trust your instincts regarding moneymaking offers. If a job seems too good to be true, it probably is. Working as part of a campaigning team will suit you down to the ground. You're more motivated to help people than turn big profits. Some friends will discourage you from entering such a field, fearing it won't be lucrative. Don't worry. You'll make a very good salary by doing what you love. Contrary to popular belief, you don't have to be miserable to earn a good living.More
