Diane Kruger says it definitely was not love at first sight with her boyfriend of seven years, Joshua Jackson.

The Inglorious Basterds star recounted the pair’s disastrous first date story on Tuesday’s “Conan,” telling the host she had a “huge allergic reaction” to the flowers in the restaurant.

She continues, “I thought he might say, ‘Let’s call it a day. I’ll bring you home.’ And of course not. He talked about himself for an hour and a half.”

Kruger says Jackson finally “took me back to my hotel in his car, which was a piece of s**t… it smelled so bad.”

Unaware that the date wasn’t going well, Jackson “leaned in for a kiss,” Kruger revealed, adding, “I swear to God, at the end, I was like ‘Should I slap him?’”

Diane Kruger: “I Punished Many Boys”

Truth rating: 10

Diane Kruger opens up to Marie Claire UK about her early boyfriend problems, therapy, and relationship with Joshua Jackson in an August cover story.

The actress explains that becoming famous at first gave her a false sense of achievement.

“For a long time I felt that I was so accomplished,’ she tells the magazine. “‘Oh I speak three languages, I travel the world, I’ve seen so many things.’ But when I turned 30 I realized I was an idiot. I didn’t know sh*t about anything.”

When Kruger decided to enter therapy several years ago, it helped her understand things more clearly.

She says that “therapy’s not about getting help; it’s facilitating yourself to deal better with life in general.”

And it’s also more widely accepted in her adopted country than in Germany.

“My friends ask, ‘What’s wrong with you?’ But here everyone talks about [therapy], and I really like that about America,” explains Kruger.

Before falling in love with Jackson, the actress struggled with her romantic relationships.

She admits, “Oh, I’m sure I punished many boys for my lack of a father figure. And I’m sure I dated many men who were much older than the men I should have been dating.”

“But at the end of the day, I’m not bitter,” says Kruger. “I love men. I want a family myself. I’m not angry with him anymore.”

She goes on to say, ”All relationships are hard. It doesn’t matter what job you have, or how famous or miserable or poor you are. It’s about commitment. The hard part is the timing. When you meet someone, are you ready to make them your number-one priority?”

Jackson seems to be the perfect match.

“I’m grateful that I met a person who feels the same not just about me, but about our relationship,” says Kruger.

Diane Kruger & Joshua Jackson Engaged?

“Are Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson engaged?” asks X17Online, which notes, “She is wearing a band on her ring finger.”

The webloid adds, “Amid speculation that Joshua was getting ready to pop the question, Diane was spotted wearing a band Thursday while taking a Vespa ride with her beau in Hollywood.”

Let’s stop this right now.

X17Online has had a spotty record in the past, claiming among other things that Shannen Doherty was pregnant (wrong), and that Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus were getting married on June 11 (nope).

Despite the blog’s speculation and previous inaccurate reports elsewhere about them being engaged, a source close to Kruger assures Gossip Cop, “They have no plans to get married.”
