Are Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson engaged? Despite rumors about the longtime couple, Jackson has now hinted that they may, in fact, never get married! What? "Josh and Diane are very close to getting engaged," a friend reportedly told Us Weekly. "They decided they're ready for the next step. They're excited!"
Despite the report, Jackson told ET Canada that he and Kruger are not walking down the aisle. "No, we're not engaged," Jackson said while holding up his ring-less hands. “I'm not sure, in the modern world, that that's the track that we're taking."
Jackson also said previously that marriage isn’t necessarily important for him and his GF, Kruger. "Marriage is important for the people it's important for, but neither one of us is particularly religious, so I don't think there's any particular push," Jackson said in 2012. "But never say never! I don't know." Kruger made similar comments to Glamour in 2011. “I don't believe in marriage. I believe in a commitment that you make in your heart."
Kruger was married to Guillaume Canet from 2001-2006. Canet is now with actress Marion Cotillard. In the new Marie Claire UK, Kruger opened about her relationship with Jackson. “All relationships are hard," Kruger said. "It doesn’t matter what job you have, or how famous or miserable or poor you are. It’s about commitment.” “The hard part is the timing," Kruger continued. "When you meet someone, are you ready to make them your number-one priority? I’m grateful that I met a person who feels the same not just about me, but about our relationship.” Kruger also admitted that she and Jackson attend therapy sessions.
"It's funny, in Paris people don't talk about it. But here everyone talks about it, and I really like that about America," Kruger told the magazine. "Therapy's not about getting help; it's facilitating yourself to deal better with life in general."
