Always thought Diane Kruger was a bit overrated. I mean seriously… Helen of Troy? Maybe a little underwhelming? Last night was no exception – obviously the assy fake bun hairdo had a lot to do with it. And the dress too. Made her look like a 50 year old socialite. Which is wonderful for a 50 year old socialite, not so much for a 30 year old glam actress.

Having said that, Diane is capable of looking much better. Not as harsh. Her features are delicate, they are pleasing to the eye, great nose to mouth combination – the kind of face better without makeup than with makeup.

She served as Master of Ceremonies at the Opening. Then she dashed over to Martinez Beach where a large sound stage thing has been set up for Q&A sessions and public forums for festival films. Zodiac was featured last night. Zodiac starring Jake Gyllenhaal.

He was wearing a suit. And suffice to say, the pants problem wasn’t a problem. Not in his suit. In his suit he was…I can’t even go there. I can’t go there without losing myself. Jake Gyllenhaal is SOOOO hot. So hot. Feel like a school girl but when he smiled, I think I peeped. Just a little squeak…but still a squeak. And a little lightheaded too.

So anyway, Diane joined Jake’s panel a little later on – at one point they sat next to each other. As she approached, being that I barely took my eyes off of him, I noticed that he couldn’t take his eyes off of her. And though they barely acknowledged each other openly, barely spoke, no secret whispers, no leg grazing, nothing of the sort…my smutty sense was going off. Because it was so totally the way two people act when they want to act on something but they know they’re being watched so they go out of their way not to act on impulse and in doing so make it even more obvious…does that make sense?

Then again, I could be talking out of my ass. Could be the Riviera breeze. Could be the jet lag, the time difference, not sleeping enough, eating and drinking too much – could be all of those things. Because we all want Jake & Reese, right?

But the smutty tingle was unmistakeable. Will keep you posted.
