Diane Kruger proved that true beauty doesn't require makeup or mousse during a recent outing in Hollywood on Friday, July 12. The Bridge actress, who is known for her stunning red carpet appearances and effortless glamour, opted to dress down as she ran errands in the city -- but still managed to wow, even in sweats and a T-shirt and no makeup.
Kruger, 36, wore a white T-shirt with a red heart emblazoned on it, sandals, and light sweat pants for her stroll through Hollywood. The actress' usually carefully coifed blonde hair was pulled back into a messy bun. Despite her low-key appearance and makeup-free face, Kruger, a former model, still showed off a flawless complexion.
In a recent interview with UK's Hello magazine, Kruger revealed that she has long been her own makeup artist for red carpet events, opting to go by the mantra that "less is more."
"I used to have my make-up done, but I would look at pictures and not recognize myself," she told the magazine. "I want to look like myself. Even though it's a special occasion, I still want to look like me; I don't want to be this done-up doll."
"I think that too much make-up takes away from your individuality," she continued. "Luckily, I love make-up and I used to model, so I feel confident doing it myself."
And the Troy actress may soon have another big event to get dolled up for -- Kruger and longtime boyfriend Joshua Jackson are rumored to be getting engaged this summer.
"Josh and Diane are very close to getting engaged," a pal of the couple told Us Weekly. "They decided they're ready for the next step. They're excited!"
