Diane KrugerThe actress opens up about the time she felt objectified in her early movie career.

At a panel for VarietySXSW Studio, Monday March 14, at 14:00 National TreasureActress shared with us that it was uncomfortable during screen testing for 2004 movie Troy, adding that she has “definitely come across the [Harvey] Weinstein“S of the world right from the beginning.”

“I recall testing for Troy and having to go to the studio head in costume,” the 45-year-old recalled. “And it was like being a meaty creature, and I was asked why you thought you should play this?”

Kruger declined to disclose the name of the executive, however, she said she’s “been put in situations that were so inappropriate and so uncomfortable” and that during the early part of her career she just assumed this is what the film world was like.
