Diane Kruger Opens Up About How Meeting Longtime Love Joshua Jackson Changed Her Life

27 June 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Diane Kruger went through a rough patch when she turned 30 and realized she was in the middle of an identity crisis. Then she met Joshua Jackson. In the cover story for Town & Country's August issue, the German-born actress opens up about how meeting Jackson was a pivotal point in her life. "Meeting someone like my partner, who has a very different perspective, who likes to travel in a different way and be open to various experience, was so important," the 39-year-old Inglourious Basterds star says. The pair, who have spoken about their reluctance to marry, started dating in 2006 right after »

Maura Tierney is a Thoughtful Mess in ‘The Affair’ — And Deserves an Emmy For It (Exclusive Video)

13 June 2016 10:48 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

When Maura Tierney was a regular on John Wells’ “E.R.,” she spent 22 episodes a year wrapping her tongue around medical jargon at top speed. As jilted Brahmin wife Helen Solloway on Sarah Treem’s Showtime series “The Affair,” she measures her words as they dig deeply into what happens inside intimate relationships.

Tierney portrays the wife of wayward novelist Noah; according to Tierney, he sees her as “the perfect martyr wife,” she said during our video interview. From the perspective of Alison, Noah’s lover, Helen is “raucously aloof and confident and classist.” (Tierney convincingly acts to the manner born; she grew up in middle-class Boston.)

Season Two brought the perspectives of Helen and her counterpart, Alison’s husband Cole (Joshua Jackson),to the forefront. “In her understanding of herself,” said Tierney, “she’s very not perfect. She has to work super hard to be this kind of Brooklyn mom. »

Maura Tierney is a Thoughtful Mess in ‘The Affair’ — And Deserves an Emmy For It (Exclusive Video)

13 June 2016 10:48 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When Maura Tierney was a regular on John Wells’ “E.R.,” she spent 22 episodes a year wrapping her tongue around medical jargon at top speed. As jilted Brahmin wife Helen Solloway on Sarah Treem’s Showtime series “The Affair,” she measures her words as they dig deeply into what happens inside intimate relationships.

Tierney portrays the wife of wayward novelist Noah; according to Tierney, he sees her as “the perfect martyr wife,” she said during our video interview. From the perspective of Alison, Noah’s lover, Helen is “raucously aloof and confident and classist.” (Tierney convincingly acts to the manner born; she grew up in middle-class Boston.)

Season Two brought the perspectives of Helen and her counterpart, Alison’s husband Cole (Joshua Jackson),to the forefront. “In her understanding of herself,” said Tierney, “she’s very not perfect. She has to work super hard to be this kind of Brooklyn mom. She can’t do it. Actually, she falls apart.” One of the funniest episodes shows Helen taking too much marijuana and pills to drive safely; she finally realizes what a mess she has become.

It was more complicated for the writers to slot everyone into the timeline, said Tierney, but it yielded more for the actors to play with. “It’s Sarah’s show,” said Tierney. “Even if other writers write the episode, everything passes through her computer. By and large, she’s the creator of the characters. At the end of Season 1, Sarah said, ‘I think we’re going to open up the show next year.’ ”

This allowed the creative narrative device to remain interesting and not devolve into a trick, said Tierney: “It opened up the storytelling for them, for Cole and Helen to have more Pov. It was more about her character having more responsibility for what went down… Sarah’s goal is she wants to peel away and get into intimacy, communication, truth-telling — and the lack of truth-telling.”

Helen is a sympathetic character because she loves her husband, who left her with three headstrong children to raise. And she didn’t see it coming. “She didn’t fall down,” said Tierney. “People stop noticing things, like how difficult the intrusion of her parents are, how hurtful it was to her husband that she was still taking money from them. You get used to a certain way of doing things. It’s the accruing of small tiny things you let slide, and you led slide, and then there’s a big chasm.”

While Helen tries on several romantic interests over the course of the series, she never stops loving Noah. “He’s a romantic ideal for her, even if she took him for granted,” said Tierney. “He’s very charming and sexy, very much the person she fell in love with.”

Some of the juiciest dramatic scenes involve Helen finally standing up to her bossy mother (the formidable Kathleen Chalfont). “Those were some of my favorites,” said Tierney. “Chalfont is wonderful; she plays the character so well…when Helen says to ‘shut up,’ it was satisfying. Margaret needed to shut up!”

Another favorite episode reunites Helen and Noah during his book tour. “We shot both of those restaurant scenes in one day, back to back,” said Tierney. “Sixteen pages of dialogue is a lot, with back-to-back POVs.”

That episode was shot by Laura Innes, her old “E.R.” cohort who’s now a top TV director. “We’re good friends,” said Tierney, “but she’s very demanding. It’s a little daunting. I always forget: ‘Yay! Laura’s directing!’ But she’s demanding, which is a good thing. You feel like you don’t want to let her down.”

When Tierney landed a Golden Globe nomination, that was shocking enough, she said. But when she won, “I could barely talk. I was really surprised.” She managed to recover. “The Affair” will start production on season 3 in August.

2016 Emmy Contenders: Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama

7 June 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Last year, Peter Dinklage took home his second Emmy Award for his role as Tyrion Lannister on “Game of Thrones.” Despite the impressive ensemble of the show, Dinklage could stand out again this year; he already has the best line of the season: “That’s what I do. I drink and I know things.” He could face competition from co-stars Kit Harington and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, neither of whom has been nominated yet.

Jonathan Banks is a likely repeat nominee for “Better Call Saul,” but his co-star Michael McKean was a scene stealer as well, and also the biggest villain of the season as he looked to usurp his own brother. McKean is a beloved vet who has never received an Emmy nomination and is long overdue.

We could see repeat nominations for Jon Voight (“Ray Donovan”) and Michael Kelly (“House of Cards”), as well as two actors whose shows left the air this year, »

Broad City Finale Recap: Air Buds

20 April 2016 7:30 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Wednesday’s Broad City season finale managed to achieve the impossible: It actually made us wish a flight was longer.

Unfortunately, our in-flight entertainment came, as it so often does, at Abbi and Ilana’s expense. Just when they finally managed to get seats next to each other — there was still one guy between them, but he was actually dead, so it’s all good — Abbi was visited by the Period Fairy. But because her Drew Barrymore-approved bag had been checked against its will, she found herself up a creek without a paddle tampon.

Joshua Jackson Thinks It Would Be a 'Disaster' to Watch The Affair with Diane Kruger

19 April 2016 5:30 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When it comes to television, the one show Joshua Jackson doesn't watch with longtime girlfriend Diane Kruger is his own! Jackson, 37, stars in Showtime's hit drama series The Affair, and while the script is steamy, that's not the main reason he doesn't tune in with Kruger, 39. "It's not the sex scenes," Jackson told People at Monday's Fyc screening and conversation of his drama series in New York City. "I don't know why any couple would watch the show together because at some point in every episode there is going to be something that has come up in a fight between the two of you, »

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Season 2: Joshua Jackson's Pacey-Centric Cameo and 11 Other Perfect Moments

Netflix has lured another A-list movie star to the small screen.

Naomi Watts has signed on to headline Gypsy, a 10-episode psychological thriller that, save for the title, shares absolutely nothing in common with the iconic musical. The two-time Oscar-nominated actress will play Jean Holloway, a therapist who begins to develop dangerous and intimate relationships with the people in her patients’ lives.

Reviewing every 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' season 2 episode

18 April 2016 6:35 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Netflix released the whole second season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt on Friday, and I'm going to offer some overall thoughts on the season, followed by specific takes on each episode, coming up just as soon as I ask whether Cate Blanchett is really a great actress, or just tall... Netflix made the first six episodes available to critics, and while I enjoyed most of those early installments, the back half of the season was by far the stronger part, and the phase of things where the shift from making episodes for NBC to making them for Netflix was much more apparent. Season 1 also turned more serialized towards the end, with the trial of the Reverend Richard Wayne Gary Wayne, and it had its emotional moments as Kimmy faced down her captor. But the later episodes of season 2 felt darker and more complicated in their attempt to address Kimmy's emotional damage. »

Diane Kruger on Filming Love Scenes with Norman Reedus - on a Movie That Costars Boyfriend Joshua Jackson: 'I Would Not Recommend Having Your Better Half on Set!'

Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson have been together for nearly a decade, but that doesn't make filming sex scenes with costars anymore bearable. The pair costar in the new film Sky (in theaters now), directed by Kruger's longtime friend Fabienne Berthaud and also costars Lena Dunham and The Walking Dead's Norman Reedus, who plays Kruger's love interest in the film. "I didn't know [Reedus] before the film," Kruger told People at the Sky premiere in New York City Thursday night, which she attended sans Jackson.

Back in February, actress Sarah Michelle Gellar confirmed that she is coming back to reprise her role as Kathryn Merteuil in NBC's Cruel Intentions TV series. Last month, she took to her Instagram page to tease her new brunette look, while showing fans the cover page of the pilot script. Now that filming is currently under way, the actress took to her Instagram page yet again, revealing two new photos from the set, one of which was on location in San Francisco with the Golden Gate Bridge in the background, and the second showcasing the actress taking a break from the shoot while taking a steamy bathtub photo.

Diane Kruger, Norman Reedus, and Lena Dunham Hit the Road In Trailer for ‘Sky’

30 March 2016 1:04 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

One might assume that the presences of Diane Kruger, Norman Reedus, and Lena Dunham would’ve lent a fair amount of attention to Sky when it premiered at last year’s Tiff, yet the few and, at that, fairly middling responses from critics didn’t send much encouragement. IFC found something to like, however: after picking it up last fall, they’ve slotted it for a theatrical and VOD release next month.

Here, now, is a domestic trailer that gives some sense of Sky‘s trajectory and texture, the latter of which I — thanks to muddy colors, lived-in spaces, and smeary digital cinematography — can take some interest in. What will that amount to? Even with a total lack of inspiring notices being taken into account, I can’t say a sense of promise has been diminished.
