London: Actress Diane Kruger has credited her boyfriend Joshua Jackson for making her more worldly wise by encouraging her to question everything she reads.

The German actress began dating Jackson in 2006 and admits her intellectual beau has instilled in her a growing curiosity for current events, reports a website.

"Josh is someone who is very grounded. It`s pure. He is very curious and is someone who always reads and is very politically engaged. He awakened the urge to ask more questions. You can take so many things for granted, because you read them and think it must be true, and he`s not like that," she said.

The "Inglourious Basterds" star says she`s determined to continue her learning journey.

"That`s my thing in my thirties. I want to work on `me` much more... Getting older, I realised I didn`t know anything. I felt incredibly stupid," she said.
