Diane Kruger is forbidden from watching her boyfriend Joshua Jackson's hit show Dawson's Creek.
The actress - who has been dating the actor for seven years - revealed she has never seen an episode of the teen drama, which ran from 1998 to 2003, because he is embarrassed about having his adolescence captured on camera.
In an interview with Flare magazine, she said: "He doesn't want me to watch his early work. He grew up in front of the camera with pimples and bloatiness."
The 36-year-old beauty also admitted to "dragging" Joshua, 34, to cooking classes and enjoys creating her own jam and pickles in their Los Angeles home.
She said: "We have a big garden in L.A. and we started canning jam and pickling. It sounds a little kooky, but the pickles we make are insane."
When she was younger, the Inglourious Basterds star - who was born and raised in Germany - yearned to move away from her small home town to become a model and eventually got her mother's permission to move to Paris, but she became the subject of gossip among her townspeople.
She explained: "I felt really trapped in my home town. My mum could sense it and to this day, without her trust in me, I don't know what I would have become. Everyone was furious. My dad was furious. My school thought I was making the biggest mistake of my life. I knew this was not the life that was meant for me."
