Pacey has a few TV pointers! While speaking to Us Weekly at the Fox All-Star party at Soho House in West Hollywood on Aug. 1, Diane Kruger — who's starring as Detective Sonya Cross in the new FX series The Bridge — explained that beau Joshua Jackson gave her a few tips about starring in a TV series.

Indeed, Jackson, 35, has some resume experience for the 37-year-old actress, as he played the role of Pacey Witter in Dawson's Creek from 1998-2003. 

"He definitely alerted me to mistakes that he made and hopefully I can avoid," she explained to Us. 

The German beauty admitted that Jackson is a little bitter since her TV series experience is quite different from his WB days. "He hates me because my experience has been like, I'm home for dinner every night, I don't have to work every day, FX wants me to think creatively," she shared. "He's been on network television and it was very different."

She laughed, "It's been super creative for me and he kinda hates me for it!"

Luckily, the actress explained that he's been completely supportive of her, and both of their careers are in a good place at the moment. 

"He just finished Fringe so he's home and I'm going to go make a movie in September," she said. "It's good!"

The pair have been dating since 2006. In June 2013, a source close to the couple revealed to Us that the actor was planning to take the next step and propose. "Josh and Diane are very close to getting engaged," a pal revealed. "They decided they're ready for the next step. They're excited!"

Kruger's new series, The Bridge, airs Wednesdays at 10pm on FX.
