Diane Kruger Describes Joshua Jackson As Her 'Hero' For Helping Her Out Of Dior Couture

20 September 2012 by

We all dream of meeting our very own Prince Charming. A gallant hero, who will free us from towers, battle fire breathing dragons and, err, cut us out of couture. Fashionista revealed that actress Diane Kruger had to ask her boyfriend Joshua Jackson (yes Pacey!) to come to her rescue at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year when she was unable to get out of her Dior dress to go to the bathroom. Granted weeing isn't the most fairy tale princess activity, but Grazia Daily is pleased to report that Josh was a true gent and gallantly stepped up to the challenge.

Diane explained '[The gown] had a huge bodice. It was so big that it took me an hour to get into it and the only way for me to go to the bathroom was to take off the bodice. Once I finished dinner, I had to go to the bathroom and it became so tight that I couldn’t breathe anymore.' We don't know what we love more about this story so far, the fact that the style icon had no qualms about stuffing her face at dinner or that the skirt of her enormous dress was obviously too heavy to lift over her head to pee.

Fortunately, as well as being real easy on the eye, it turns out that Mr Jackson is also a dab hand with the scissors as the actor snipped his fair lady free from the shackles of her bodice. Diane explained: ‘Josh had to come with me to the lady’s room and cut me out of it. That’s real love, isn’t it, to have someone like him help me in the weirdest situations. He’s great and he’s like my hero.’

He may be Diane’s hero, but to ardent fans of couture we’re pretty sure that Josh is a murderer. It's unclear what became of the dress, but we’re guessing Dior won’t be lending to the German actress again any time soon.
