Dawson's Creek - Diane Kruger: 'First Date With Joshua Jackson Was Terrible'
The actor tracked the German star to her hotel and asked her to join him at the bar, but she made it clear that it could only be a short meeting as she already had plans for the evening elsewhere.
She says, "He thinks he asked me out on a date, which is not true - because I would have not agreed to that. I agreed to have drinks with him... He was at the bar, so I went downstairs.
"I actually had plans with somebody else for dinner, so I know I didn't say yes to dinner... so we're sitting at the bar and it's nine o' clock and I'm ready to leave... and he says, 'Ok, let's go, we have dinner reservations'. I felt really bad because he looked very eager and he put on a clean shirt and I said, 'Ok, fine.'
"He took me to this romantic place, which is really awkward when you think of it - now I'm in a romantic setting... It's a little intense."
And the evening got progressively worse as Kruger's allergies kicked in.
She adds, "It (restaurant) was overgrown with these huge flowers, to which I had a huge allergic reaction to... I was sneezing and coughing, I couldn't say anything, my eyes were watery, and I thought, 'He's probably gonna say let's call it a day, let's go home...' and he talked about himself for an hour and a half non-stop because he was so embarrassed.
"Then he took me back to the hotel in his car, which was a piece of s**t... The door was eaten by his dog, it smelled so bad... It was not cute. And then he leans in for a kiss and I swear to God at the end, I was like, 'Should I slap him...?' It was very uncomfortable.
"I ran away, practically, and I thought, 'This guy is never going to call me again or talk to me,' and then he sent flowers the next day with a box of Kleenex (tissues)... That was kind of cute."
