Sneak Peek new images of "Inglourious Basterds" actress Diane Kruger, wearing a Summer 2018 fashion line for Swedish clothing retailer "Hennes & Mauritz" aka "H&M" :

"With modeling, you pose," said Kruger. "You want to look your best all the time. With acting, you have to be aware of the camera...the more you show your imperfections, the better you're going to be.

"I get offered a World War II movie at least once a week just because I speak German and was born there.

"I don't want to let my life as a woman pass me by. There's a time to work, there's a time to be young and crazy, and there should be a time to enjoy motherhood. I'm actually looking forward to that.

Win ‘Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story’ On DVD

Hedy Lamarr was iconic. A Hollywood star known as ‘the most beautiful woman in the world’, she inspired both Snow White and Catwoman with her striking looks and distinctive persona. The Hedy Lamarr Story, available on DVD and VOD from 23rd April 2018 courtesy of Dogwoof, explores the real woman behind the glamour. To celebrate the release, we have three copies to give away on DVD.

As famous for her performances as she was infamous for her multiple marriages and affairs with the likes of Spencer Tracy and JFK, Hedy Lamarr was enigmatic. There was substance behind the beauty, though; a side to her far more interesting than the spotlight of stardom. She was a maverick, an ingenious inventor whose pioneering work helped revolutionise modern communication. Her groundbreaking concept of frequency hopping is now used as the basis for secure Wi-Fi, Gps and Bluetooth. We have far more than beautifully poised performances to thank her for.
