Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson have been together for seven years, making them one of Hollywood's more successful couples. But their first date was so awful, he's lucky he ever got to see her again.
"He thinks he asked me out on a date, which is not true, because I did not agree to that. I agreed to have drinks with him," Kruger said during an appearance on Conan on Tuesday.
Through the power of an eager expression and a clean shirt, Jackson managed to turn drinks into dinner — where, the German beauty says, he talked about himself for an hour and a half, in a restaurant that made her ill. "It was overgrown with beautiful flowers, to which I had a huge allergic reaction — like really, really bad. I was sneezing and coughing and my eyes were watery."
He took her home in a stinky car his dog had chewed up, and when he went in for the kiss she seriously considered slapping him. All of which answered a burning question I didn't know I had: How much does Joshua Jackson resemble Pacey in real life? Answer: a tremendous lot.
