Bond Girl Eva Green has revealed that a sick bucket was on standby on the set of her new film Perfect Sense.
The French beauty wore a figure-hugging lace Pucci gown to the premiere of the film in London’s Curzon Mayfair, where she was joined by co-star Ewan McGregor and director David Mackenzie.
Green plays a scientist who begins a love affair with a chef (McGregor) at the same time as the world is swept by an epidemic of a terrible disease which causes the loss of the senses one at a time. Before losing taste they are struck by an uncontrollable hunger and devour anything they can.
Green revealed: “That was quite intense. I had to eat flowers, lipstick, and toothpaste. But we had a bucket next to us… It was bonkers. But I didn’t die.”
Meanwhile, McGregor trained with professional chefs in Glasgow for the role.
He said: “We had to look like we knew what we were doing. It was a top end kitchen so we had to look like we knew what were we doing technically. So that was important to look at what makes a chef look like he’s a good chef.”
McGregor admitted he hadn’t kept up his cooking skills since.
But the Moulin Rouge star did say he would be keen to play Sir Elton John in his new musical biopic Rocketman, after he was tipped for the part.
McGregor said: “I’d be delighted – send me the script Elton.”
Perfect Sense also stars McGregor’s uncle Denis Lawson, the director’s brother Alastair McKenzie and Trainspotting‘s Ewen Bremner, who all attended the screening.
