Diane Kruger Calls Uncle Karl Her Mentor

Diane Kruger has had a longstanding relationship with Karl Lagerfeld and the House of Chanel.  In a recent interview, she discussed how the relationship began and how she feels about Uncle Karl…

He’s like my stepfather; I love Karl. He’s the funniest person I know. He’s a big inspiration actually…I’m not a very good impersonator, my friends maybe, but not famous people. I can do Karl very well, Karl Lagerfeld, because he speaks the same in every language….I had modeled for Chanel quite a bit when I was younger, and I’ve known Karl since I was 16. When I started to act, they’d lend me clothes, and Karl designed a haute-couture gown for me that I wore to the premiere of ‘Troy’ in Cannes. I still have the sketch. I look at him as a mentor.
