A Host of at­tributes

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - MOVIES -

AC­TRESS Diane Kruger (pic­tured) jumped at the chance to star in the film adap­ta­tion of au­thor Stephe­nie Meyer’s The Host af­ter be­com­ing hooked on the writer’s Twi­light se­ries. The Ger­man beauty, 36, ad­mits she is a big fan of both the vam­pire books and the movie fran­chise, so she im­me­di­ately ac­cepted when she was of­fered a role in the sci-fi drama. ‘‘I love Stephe­nie’s books – so many emo­tions!’’ She tells Us Weekly mag­a­zine. ‘‘She ap­peals to my in­ner teenage girl . . . Ob­vi­ously, I’ve seen Twi­light. I’m Team Ed­ward, for sure! It’s fun to be part of the cool kids’ club!’’ Kruger has been on a pro­mo­tional tour across the US for the film and has been flat­tered by all the at­ten­tion she’s re­ceived from ador­ing male fans. ‘‘We did a cou­ple of poster sign­ings in malls around Amer­ica and thou­sands of peo­ple showed up . . . it’s neat be­cause I don’t make teenage films, so I get asked out on dates, I get presents . . . I’mready for teenage boys!’’

The Host is in cinemas.
