Her appearance in France comes just weeks after it was revealed that the 40-year-old split from her long-term boyfriend after ten years together.
A spokesperson told People Magazine in July: 'They have decided to separate and remain friends.'
Diane started dating Josh, 38, in 2006 after she split from her husband of five years, French director Guillaume Canet.
