The actor tracked the German star to her hotel and asked her to join him at the bar, but she made it clear that it could only be a short meeting as she already had plans for the evening elsewhere.
She says, "He thinks he asked me out on a date, which is not true - because I would have not agreed to that. I agreed to have drinks with him... He was at the bar, so I went downstairs.
"I actually had plans with somebody else for dinner, so I know I didn't say yes to dinner... so we're sitting at the bar and it's nine o' clock and I'm ready to leave... and he says, 'Ok, let's go, we have dinner reservations'. I felt really bad because he looked very eager and he put on a clean shirt and I said, 'Ok, fine.'
"He took me to this romantic place, which is really awkward when you think of it - now I'm in a romantic setting... It's a little intense."
And the evening got progressively worse as Kruger's allergies kicked in.
She adds, "It (restaurant) was overgrown with these huge flowers, to which I had a huge allergic reaction to... I was sneezing and coughing, I couldn't say anything, my eyes were watery, and I thought, 'He's probably gonna say let's call it a day, let's go home...' and he talked about himself for an hour and a half non-stop because he was so embarrassed.
"Then he took me back to the hotel in his car, which was a piece of s**t... The door was eaten by his dog, it smelled so bad... It was not cute. And then he leans in for a kiss and I swear to God at the end, I was like, 'Should I slap him...?' It was very uncomfortable.
"I ran away, practically, and I thought, 'This guy is never going to call me again or talk to me,' and then he sent flowers the next day with a box of Kleenex (tissues)... That was kind of cute."
