Diane Kruger has revealed her first date with Joshua Jackson was a "disaster" and "the worst night we've ever spent together".

The Host actress has been dating the Dawson's Creek actor since 2006, but confessed to German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemaine that when he first asked her out, she didn't even want to go.

Diane revealed: "It was a strange situation. I thought he was only coming for a drink, I lived in a hotel at the time. And I did not plan to go out to dinner with him, because I didn't even like him that much. I did not want to go out with him.

"So we sat down in the hotel bar, and I kept looking at the clock because I was doing something else. But I did not want to break his heart when he told me that he had reserved us a table in a great restaurant.

"It was the worst night we've ever spent together. Our first date was really a disaster. The worst part was that he did not then even try to kiss me when he brought me home. I said to him, 'Are you kidding me?' And then I ran out of the car."

She added: "I have allergies. I think I probably reacted to the flowers in the restaurant."

But Joshua, 34, won the German actress's heart when he sent her flowers the next day, along with a box of tissues.

Diane, 36, said: "He made me laugh from the start.

She added: "He has a great sense of humour. I don't have a preference between humour and intelligence, the one does not exclude the other. But if he were just funny, I think that is not so great. But I've learned a man should definitely have humour."
