Eva Green counts herself “very lucky” to have her mother supporting her movie career.
Eva has followed in the footsteps of her mom Marlène Jobert by becoming an actress. The pair are very close and Eva wouldn’t have it any other way.
“Oh I’m married to my mother!” Eva told the latest issue of UK magazine InStyle.
“She’s a great support. I still need my mom – I should grow up! She doesn’t come on sets, but she’s there when I go home, so I can cry, I can complain and we’ll talk about the role. I’m very lucky.”
However, Eva says her mother’s career did not influence her decision to enter the entertainment industry.
Marlène was reluctant to take Eva and her twin sister Joy to watch her perform when they were growing up.
“No, not at all, she stopped acting when she was in her early forties to raise me and my sister. I never went on any movie sets,” she explained. “She was never like, ‘Oh go and be an actor’ – never.”
Eva can next be seen playing a witch in Dark Shadows and admits most of her roles have an “intense” side. She has joked that people now believe she’s like her movie characters.
“People think I’m evil, a witch,” she laughed.
“It’s so boring to play the girlfriend. Most of the women in film are there to be beautiful for the man. It’s quite hard to find a ballsy or complex character. So the roles I’ve taken are those. Lots of people put me in the daaaaarrrrk category.”
