The gorgeous Sin City 2 actress talks her favourite restaurant, wine, and what you should be wearing.

Sultry blue eyes, Bond girl pedigree and a recent US ban for an overly sexy film poster: it’s no wonder Eva Green is a woman we love.

Her latest incarnation, as Ava Lord in Sin City 2: A Dame To Kill For, might just be her most impressive role yet, as she takes on mantle of the ultimate femme fatale in Frank Miller’s graphic novel sequel.

We caught up with the French native to get her thoughts on London, wine, and what she thinks you should be wearing.

Favourite… city: Paris. It’s where I was born, it’s where my heart is.

Book: My favourite book is actually a play: Miss Else, by Arthur Schnitzler. I learned lots of monologues from it in drama school, and I really love the characters: they’re dark and funny.

Restaurant: St John’s in London. The ingredients are really good, the food is simple – it’s kind of bistro-y, English cuisine. Plus, the desserts are to die for.

FilmCries And Whispers by Ingmar Bergman [a 1972 Swedish film]. It’s just so beautiful. I think Bergman is a genius: his work is very sensitive.

Holiday destination: South Africa, definitely. I was there a year ago, near the Kruger National Park. It was amazing: you’re there with all the animals, it makes you feel very alive.

Outfit on a man: I like a man to wear comfortable clothes – it’s boring, but I love to be relaxed. I like wearing black leggings and t-shirts, something easy.

Way to relax: Walking or running. I can’t lie down – I need to let it all out.

Alcoholic drink: Red wine. I love a good Bordeaux.

Piece of life advice: It sounds cheese-y, but don’t worry too much. Life is short.

Thing about London: I love the restaurants – the average place is much better than it is in Paris. And the parks, it’s so lovely to just walk for hours in such a green city. My favourite spot is Primrose Hill because there’s lots of dogs there – I’m a big dog lover.

On screen idol: Bette Davis. She’s my role model – she was fun and naughty.

Item you’d save from a burning building: My glasses – I’m very short sighted.

    Growing up with an actress mother,I must think she’s this spoiled rich kid. But she is so not that, which is amazing. So simple,elegant and down to earth. I’m a big fan of this woman and will always be.
