Diane Kruger: I've dated hoarders

Diane Kruger has dated many men who were "hoarders".

The German actress is currently in a relationship former Dawson's Creek star Joshua Jackson.

Whereas fashionable Diane doesn't have much interest in keeping her boyfriend stylish, there is one habit she helped him kick.

"[Do I have input in his style?] Not really. I think men in general want to look good for their women, because they benefit immensely from the attention," she quipped to British magazine Glamour.

"I will say that a lot of men I've dated, and in particular Josh, are hoarders. They seem to not be able to throw anything away from the time they were 15 years old. That had to go."

With both Diane and Joshua facing hectic Hollywood schedules, it can be difficult for them to spend time together.

The pretty blonde says they try to make the most of the little things as a couple.

"Things that for people are normal are actually the things that are really exciting to us at this point," she admitted.

"What's boring is travelling just to go and see each other for two nights. They say it keeps the relationship spicy or whatever, and I'm sure it does to a certain extent, but it was getting old. I said to [Josh] the other day, 'I'm really looking forward to being bored of you.'"

Despite the couple hoping to spend more time together, it doesn't look like their work schedules will be slowing down anytime soon.

Diane has just finished filming crime drama The Bridge and the 36-year-old isn't worried about work drying up with age.

"This has been my busiest year yet," she explained.

"But I don't really look at it that way - I feel there's a time for everything in life. I'm not married to my job and, with age, I realise there are many things I want to do in my personal life, so I can totally see myself not doing that forever. I love what I do and if it keeps coming, great, but it's not something that if it goes away then I have nothing."

For the pretty star turning older has actually allowed time for reflection.

She feels that with age comes the wisdom to look back at mistakes she made in the past.

"When I turned 30, I realised how ignorant I really was. I always thought I had a very accomplished life. I lived on my own and I was financially independent since 15; I speak different languages, I've travelled the world. I thought, 'Oh, I'm so smart,'" she admitted.

"I realised through my personal travels how little I know about certain conflicts, because I was too vain or self-absorbed to ask the questions. That's been the focus while I'm in my thirties - to become an accomplished woman, rather than some actress."
