Eva Green felt like an “old maid” during her childhood.

The French actress buckled down and studied hard when she was growing up. She admits she was wise beyond her years as she understood the importance of education.

“I went to a prestigious school. I was always studying, you know, I was an old maid!” Eva told the latest issue of UK magazine InStyle. “I didn’t feel like I was blooming, though. I was very shy.”

At 17, Eva enrolled at The American School in Paris where she felt “less judgment” before going on to drama school.

The 31-year-old star’s hard work has paid off as she has played a Bond girl in Casino Royale and also appeared in Kingdom of Heaven.

As she continues to see her star rise in Hollywood, she refuses to promote her status on social networking sites such as Twitter.

“Why would I do that? It’s masochistic. It’s not healthy if you become very self-conscious as an actor,” she said, shaking her head.

Eva can next be seen in Dark Shadows alongside Johnny Depp and Michelle Pfeiffer. She plays the role of powerful witch Angelique Bouchard who imprisons a vampire when he refuses to give in to her advances.

    Eva transcendence is huge, she has no limits … since I first saw in “The Dreamers” I have followed since then … apparently his career still has a long road full of glory. “Dark Shadows” is a great film, but one more in the life of Eva. I hope someday to meet in person as Eva is a dream to perform for me.

    I apologize for my bad English
