Actors Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger have been part of Hollywood's happily unmarried for more than five years, but that doesn't mean they are 100-percent opposed to the idea of walking down the aisle.
Both of them have publicly sworn off the idea of marriage, but the Fringe actor, 34, tells Us Weekly that the future could bring wedding bells for him and the Germany-born Kruger, 35, some day.
"Marriage is important for the people it's important for, but neither one of us is particularly religious, so I don't think there's any particular push," he said to Us Weekly at Montblanc's 24 Hour Plays in Los Angeles. "But never say never! I don't know."
Jackson's comments are considerably more open to the idea of marriage than Kruger's interview with Glamour in February 2011. "Without sounding pessimistic, I learned that I don't believe in marriage," Kruger, who was married to French actor Guillaume Canet from 2001-2006 (he's been married to Oscar winner Marion Cotillard since 2007), said.
She continued: "I believe in a commitment that you make in your heart. There's no paper that will make you stay. A guy friend of mine said, and it made a lot of sense, that people should get married at the end of the road, not the beginning."
If Jackson and Kruger do get married, perhaps they will add his old Dawson's Creek buddies to the guest list. According to Jackson, he and Katie Holmes, 33, James Van Der Beek, 35, and Michelle Williams, 31 are still in touch but don't hang out too frequently.
"We're all doing pretty well for ourselves," Jackson laughed. "I just talked to James the other day. I see Michelle every once in a while and I ran into Katie over the summer... So we see each other every once in a while, but not on a constant basis."
Jackson compared their relationship to a college clique of friends. "Everybody scatters to the four winds after it ends," he said. "But you're bonded by that common experience."
