    `Hey, do they know something that we don’t? Anyway, I think Joy will be first as she is older than Eva 🙂

    It’s great to know what people think of my future mother-in-law.

    George: Eva is older! Joy is her twin, but Eva was born a couple of minutes earlier (hence her name being “Eva”).

    So that would imply…! 😉

    George, Marlene Jobert is doing “audio books” (I don’t know how you really name it) for children, and I think she’s kind of very popular with parents and grand-parents 😉 If you’re interested… 😀 http://livre.fnac.com/a1508134/Marlene-Jobert-Tom-Pouce?PID=1

    EvaAnne: Yes you are right (I must refresh my Evagreenology courses). Anyway, I think that Joy will be the first one to deliver the lucky grandchildren for Marlene.
    Kajual: Many thanks for the link!!! However, I think that her grandchildren will listen to her live not from audio 🙂
    Of course I am interested. A melodic narration even if I can’t understand everything will bring back my childhood 🙂 …and who doesn’t want it?

    Marlène Jobert I agree it seems a very nice woman and lovely.

    Caro82: I don’t know but it sounds logical for Eva to go to the European premiere of Cracks next Sunday (October 25th) at 18:00 at Vue Screen 5 (unfortunatelly fully booked) . Info from

    I had seen a little rport in french tv show last week, about how many stars are paid to take part in “chic” parties. They talk about Eva. If you want to see it, you have to do like this:
    – on http://www.m6replay.fr, you clic on “emissions”
    – then, on “100% MAG”
    – on the right side of the video, you search “emission du 14 octobre”
    – a new video appears, wait few seconds until the advertising stops.
    – on the left, you clic in “chapitres” on video 3 “quand on est star, on ne paye rien”
    Of course the video is in french but Eva explains why she choose to sign this type of contract with Montblanc. According to her, this contract is prestigious and this money helps her to play in “independant movie”. I don’t know if i’m right because the journalist is not clear, but i understood that,
    just for an evening, Eva is paid 200000 euros!! Or maybe this is the total amount of the contract!!!

    I just saw imdb lists Eva’s character in The Last Word as being called Susan.
    I have no idea if this is true, off course…

    George : now you can listen to french lullabies anytime 😀 Glad I contributed to your happiness !

    Kev : Thanks for the link ! It’s kind of indecent to talk about such amount of money but ahh… And you’re right, the journalist is not really explicit, but I understood that she’s paid 200 000 euros just for an appearance. Crazy world. She said that it’s a reasonable, prestigious contract which help actors to get involved in independant productions, etc. *glad to hear her speaking in french even if I love her subtle english accent ;)*

    Thanks Kev. If the amount in the contract is right all I can say is that Angharad and Charles are really good negotiators. However, Eva has already explained it before, that this kind of activities (commercials, campaigns, Dior, Breil etc) offers her the luxury of choice in her projects. I have no problem with that (…and who asked me?), if people (…or rather wealthy companies) are willing to give this kind of money.

    George: thanks for the info.

    If Eve takes that amount of money that will be worth it, is my opinion.

    kev : Merci pour l’info j’ai pas eu la chance de tomber sur l’émission

    I didn’t hear they said that Eva is paid 200 000 € exactly, they said that all the actresses who came that night earned between 6000 € and 20 000 €, and Eva who is Montblanc’s muse earned tenth more, so 200 000 € is only the max amount she could be paid, we don’t know exactly.

    The only thing for which I’m very jealous with Eva is her super bed, you know the one in which she sleeps every night, and that she could certainly buy thanks to all that money. Ok she says “Thanks to it, I can play in independant movies blablabla”, but the truth is the main reason why she chose to sign that contract with Montblanc is because she was projecting to get a super bed. And actually, she’s projecting to get another one to put it in Marlène’s flat in Paris. I think that is her only interest, nothing else.

    PS : Is there someone who remember the brand’s name of her luxurious and traditional bed ? (Remember that very far article…)

    Tango_down : Enfant, quand Joy rêvait à ses chevaux, Eva se projetait dans un lit royal démesuré. Parfaitement d’accord 😉

    The video can be view until tonight. After…. it will be too late….. the video is withdrawn one week after the first broadcast in tv.
    200000 euros, the price of a little flat in Paris! She is lucky!

    Tango_down: Be aware: A good bed is a trap! You wouldn’t want to leave it and it will make you lazy. It’s not necessarily bad, but then, how would you play the clarinet?

    PS … of course everything depends on the company you have 🙂

    EvaAnne: Neither do I. I tried yesterday but it was inactive.

    Kajual : C’est clair que c’est drôle de voir son nom apparaître aux côtés du roi de Suède, c’est bien révélateur d’une envie irrésistible à laquelle elle a succombé.
    Je suis sûr qu’après une longue et dure journée, elle doit sourire intérieurement à l’idée de rejoindre son lit douillet, et retrouver celui qui, il est fort à parier, doit compter parmi ses meilleurs amis, un dénommé Morphée.

    George & EvaAnne : I bet the streaming only worked in France, if I knew in advance I would had tried to record it somehow or other, and put it on You Tube for everyone here. But I would had risked to be woken up the next day by the french police’s special forces blowing my house’s entrance door at 6:00 AM… You don’t want that happening to me, do you ?
