May 6th, 2011   M. Interview 44 Comments

Yes, yes, yes!!! It’s true!!! Miss Green kindly granted us an exclusive Q&A and answered all of our questions!!! We thank her for her kindness and for taking some time to answer us. I’d also like to thank Joy and George, without who it wouldn’t have been possible. Keep checking back for the rest of the Q&A!!! ;)

Q&A session for Eva.
ANSWERS 3/5/2011


1. Do you occasionally visit EvaGreenWeb? What’s your opinion about the site? What would you like to change in this?

Yes, I do visit the site – not as often as I’d like as I’ve been very busy – but I’m always very touched by the lovely things people say, their kindness, and their passion through the years. I think what’s moved me the most is that the people who follow my career on this site, seem to understand me and the choices I’ve made in my career, not going for big studio movies, but smaller independent films closer to my heart, that inspire me; project that seem to have a soul.
It is the most up to date web site and even my agent checks it out to see what’s going on with me, so I don’t think that there’s anything that I would change on it.

2. Role selection is a multiple criteria decision making process. What are these criteria for you (e.g. the production, the co-stars, the story, the role itself, the perspectives for award, the compensation etc) and which of them you think as most important?
I can’t say any one criterion is the most important, but definitely the story and its impact on me when I begin reading it, how it grabs me, makes me want to play the character is vital. Then the other actors, the director, and yes, the production is important because there are producers who love to make films and then there are producers who love to make money, and well, of course it’s a business, but I love to work with producers who really care about the film…and there aren’t many left in the business.

3. Which scenes proved to be the most difficult for you in your last projects?
I don’t think there was any particular scene that was difficult in Camelot, but coming from film, it was difficult for me as the pace is different and we must move very quickly from one episode to the next, so this was a really big challenge for me and necessitated having total confidence in my partners, which I did, as they are all wonderful actors, and lovely people to work with.

4. During a new movie project what is the part that you enjoy most and also dislike the most (e.g. reading the script for the first time, filming, the atmosphere during shooting, promoting activities etc)?
I enjoy all aspects of a new project, though I do wish that there was more time for rehearsal before filming, as we do in theatre, but with everyone’s different schedules, this never seems possible. I guess the only thing I dislike is the promotion of the film once it’s finished, but it is an important part of the process and I feel so lucky being able to do the job I do, that I accept doing the promoting, as all actors do.

5. Do you, in general, keep contact with people that you have worked with in the past (actors, directors, producers etc)?
Yes, I try to, but of course, it isn’t always possible as this business takes you all over the world and though you become very close to the team while you’re shooting, everyone moves on in so many different directions that sometimes it isn’t easy to keep in touch. I do manage to stay in touch with a lot of the technical crew like my personal hairdresser, makeup artist, and others behind the camera.

    Oh! She’s so nice! I just adore her and I believe all her choices were great, except for ‘Arsene Lupin’, ‘Cracks’ being my favourite film! She was exquisite in that one!

    I have said it before This Very Talented and Beautiful Actress is in a Class of Her own!!
    Knew it from the start and always stated she reminds me of the Actors from days gone by.
    Her choices are always on Target and she is smart not to get caught up in all the Hollywood Fluff – She is to smart and it just is not her.
    Thank you for this interview folks and thank you Eva Green for being who you are as it is No secert…We all adore you!!!!
    Best Regards,
    Nikos

    In my opinion Eva is one of the stars of cinema more accessible to their fans! I am Brazilian (More prescisa’m from the city of Limeira), come to Brazil someday, is a wonderful country. For now I’m only 14 but want to be a film director, since I created characters inspired by you! If you’re reading would be an honor if you come on my blog and leave a comment. thanks!

    Posted on May 06, 2011

    Eva, you’re amazing, and I always loved that you never took the typical Hollywood route, but instead chose roles based on your own interests! That says so much about an actress, especially now when it’s so easy to get caught up in fame and money. I’ve been a fan of yours since Kingdom Of Heaven and you’ve never lost sight of your true self. We love you! <3

  • Marie
    Posted on May 06, 2011

    Eva Green: the best actress ever, the most beautiful too.

    Her voice ? Honey to my ears (you couldn’t imagine for a single moment that she’s french! And I admire her for that, ’cause we’re known to kill any other language. )

    Her cheekbones, the beauty spots on her face: perfection?

    It was kind and very friendly from her to answer.

    EGW: I follow Eva for years now thanks to you. You do deserve this honor, your work is rightly rewarded.

  • Raquel

    Eva,

    Thank you so much for answering the question, that was very sweet of you! You are an amazing actress and an inspiration.

    Lots of love and happiness

    So awesome! i really enjoy her acting and i love the roles she picks! she’s so willing to try interesting characters with such depth! And she seems like a very humble person as well, especially if she likes independent movies! i always wish other of my favorite actors would do independent films but their always doing BIG blockbusters.
    Thanks Eva for doing this! can’t wait to hear more!

    Hi! I really liked this interview! Eva I do appreciate your movie selections! I wish you the best! Love from Greece!

  • Sara

    Aww I love Eva!! So good of her to do a Q&A with you! Definitely understand why she goes for independent films, they’re usually the best; Cracks and Womb were brilliant. Such deliciously complicated characters or “morally questionable” as I like to think of them. Real creativity doesn’t thrive on an obsession with money. Can’t wait for Dark Shadows I adore Tim Burton and his innovations!! People who are different are good in my book!

  • Anna
    Posted on November 02, 2011

    OMG! She’s so nice! I absolutely love her and I”ve seen just about every movie that she’s been in. Camelot was fantastic! I’m eagerly awaiting the North Americn release of Perfect Sense…. :D

    I love you eva green. I’m a high school student in Korea. I’m 17 years old and I’m feeling a love with you. Isn’t it strange? You and me has not ever never met. In addition, I’m an asian who lives in a half the gobe away I watched you in a movie Perfect Sence. It was released in Korea december 4, 2011. Actually it is not hot in Korea. But it relieves me that you played a great depth role which is interesting me. You are a unapproachable women who is in a screen. I can’t contact you and even I can’t have a dream like a talking with you. I’m addicted to your acting. You can’t imagine my feelings. My hope thing is just I live longer than you as I can see you in a screen^^
