Eva Green is like a vampire because she has to be so careful in the sun.

The 35-year-old actress has completely embraced her ultra pale skin, which means she goes to great lengths to protect it. Even when there is no threat of sun she slathers on sun protection as she knows how sensitive her skin can be.

“I’m like a vampire. I have to wear sunscreen or I look like a prawn! Even in winter I wear SPF30 – Skinceuticals Brightening UV Defence SPF30 and La Roche-Posay Anthelios Face Anti-Shine Dry Touch Gel SPF50+ are my favourites. It’s easier to apply make-up over the top of SPF30 than 50, which can be thick,” she told British magazine InStyle. “I have thin, fragile skin so I’m not a big fan of exfoliating and I don’t tend to get facials either.”

That’s not the only way the French star cares for herself. She’s also very particular about what she will and won’t eat, something she thinks many other people could learn from her.

“My diet is very LA; I eat mainly organic food. The amount of pesticides in our food is outrageous and so many people aren’t aware of what they’re eating,” she explained. “I drink lots of juices and eat kale, and have loads of energy as a result. I’m reading a great book by Dr Joel Fuhrman called Super Immunity about how you can cure all sorts of diseases with food.”

Alongside this, Eva works out regularly. For her exercise it’s just about keeping her body lean though, it’s more how it cares for her wellbeing that she likes.

“I run outside to help with my nerves. It’s a good way to get rid of your demons. Gyms are a bit depressing. You feel like a hamster on a wheel,” she said.

    A truly splendid article. First off, I had a good chuckle at how Eva compared herself to a vampire, and also emphasizes the paleness of her skin + its reaction to sun. I’m sure other Eva fans will agree that our minds have all gone there at least one time or another, looking at that icy complexation she’s got, lol.

    Second, very interesting read, about how she likes to eat and workout. As a guy whose primary exercise is getting out on walks, her metaphor of how being in a gym is like a ‘hamster on a wheel’, I can now see exactly what she means. Gyms have NEVER been my thing, either.
