Troy, a 2004 epic historical war drama film directed by Wolfgang Petersen, was widely criticized for its lack of historical accuracy.

Starring Diane Kruger as Helen of Sparta in one of her more high-profile roles to date, The Guardian called the movie a “historical travesty.”

Troy: Director’s Cut, which was was screened at the 57th Berlin International Film Festival on February 17, 2007, includes almost 30 minutes of extra footage that complete many parts of the storyline. Most film critics consider it superior to the original.

The director’s cut is famous for a love scene between Helen of Sparta and Paris, Prince of Troy (portrayed by Orlando Bloom) that was reframed to include more nudity of Diane Kruger and closeups of her breasts. The love scene between Achilles (Brad Pitt) and Briseis (Rose Byrne) was also extended.

Thanks to her sex scene in Troy, the German actress was ranked Number 50 on the Maxim Hot 100 Women of 2005.

Not many celebrities can pull off head-to-toe velvet, but it looks like Diane Kruger can. In October 2015, the “Troy” actress looked stunning at the Balmain x H&M launch party at 23 Wall Street in New York City.

Diane wore black velvet pants and a matching top paired with dark green chandelier earrings and caged sandal booties.
