Total Film (UK) – June 2013

Eva Green is ready for battle — “She has some balls, that’s for sure,” declares Eva Green of her weapon-wielding warrior in 300: Rise of an Empire. (…) “It’s my first action movie,” says the Bafta-winner. “Artemisia’s like an Amazon… She’s a very, very strong woman.”

Who’s ready for battle??? :D

Studio Ciné Live (France) – February 2013

The French actress is pursuing her rich international career by filming White Bird in a Blizzard under the direction of Gregg Araki. It’s the story of a young woman (Shailene Woodley, The Descendants), whose life is turned upside down by the disappearance of her mother. Today, Eva Green shoots, in Los Angeles, a scene in which she gets married… in the same church where Elvis and Priscilla Presley tied the knot in 1967. “It’s the first time that I get married on screen. And I shoot, the same day, my wedding and my funeral!”, she confides.



’300′ Sequel Gets New Title, ‘Rise Of An Empire’

Posted by Stef in Sep 20,2012 with 1 Comment

The follow-up to director Zack Snyder’s ground-breaking “300″ has been in title limbo pretty much since its inception. Originally called “Xerxes,” suggesting a heavy emphasis on the Persian king played in the first film by “Lost” actor Rodrigo Santoro, the “300″ sequel eventually went by the name “Battle of Artemesia,” referring to a new character played by former Bond girl Eva Green.

Now, the film has landed upon yet another new, presumably final title: “300: Rise of an Empire.” It’s a clearer title to be sure, one that seemingly refers to Xerxes’ war effort to spread his influence in Sparta, Athens and beyond. We’ll certainly find out more as the weeks and months progress, as the movie is slated to come out next year.

In addition to Santoro and Green, “300: Rise of an Empire” features Sullivan Stapleton in the starring role of Athenian general Themistocles. There’s no room in this one for Gerard Butler, however. His King Leonidas dies a glorious death at the end of “300,” though there was much speculation that he would reprise his role for a cameo of sorts in “Rise of an Empire.” Not so anymore, as Butler recently confirmed to MTV News that it’s not going to happen.

“Oh yeah, I’m not doing it,” he said. “They’re filming [the '300' sequel] right now. I wish them the best, but it didn’t [work out]. It wasn’t really my thing.”

Directed by Noam Murro, “300: Rise of an Empire” hits theaters on August 2, 2013.

Eva Green Opens Up About Her Nude Scenes In ‘The Dreamers’

Posted by Stef in Sep 04,2012 with 2 Comments

Eva Green was put at ease ahead of her sex scenes in 2003 movie The Dreamers after actor Louis Garrel complimented her on her breasts.

The Bond girl admits the racy drama challenged her, but Garrel suggested they strip off before the shoot to familiarize themselves with each other – and Green was surprised when the tactic worked.

She tells Britain’s The Sun, “The sex scenes were quite full on and frank in The Dreamers. I had a scene in which my own character has to lose her virginity. I had to remember how I felt when I first had sex. I am so reserved in real life, but I surprised myself completely.”

“I was asked if I wanted some alcohol before some of the scenes – and admit that I did have some whisky. There was a breaking of the ice before the sex scene.

“The actor Louis Garrel came into my trailer and said: ‘I will show you my d**k if you show me your breasts.’ So I did – and he did. He said to me: ‘They look great.’ So when it came to the sex scenes, it made it a little easier.”

Eva Green: My mother taught me to act as if you’re not scared of anything

Posted by M. in Sep 02,2012 with 3 Comments

By GARTH PEARCE

EVA GREEN has been hailed as one of the best Bond girls ever, following her role as Vesper Lynd in 2006 film Casino Royale.

The 32-year-old French actress made her controversial screen debut three years before then, in The Dreamers – in which she spent much of the film naked.

She has built a reputation as a risk-taker but tells GARTH PEARCE of her mother’s warnings.

“MY mother Marlene Jobert was scared for me to become an actress like her. She knew I was too sensitive and fragile.

“So I have learned from her how to appear to be tougher than I really am. She said: “You want to be an actress? Then act as if you are not scared of anything.” Read the rest of this entry »

Shy Girl… sex bomb Eva Green is really a bundle of nerves

Posted by M. in Jun 29,2012 with 2 Comments

If you’re looking for a vamp, a sorceress or a sex bomb for your latest blockbuster, you call Eva Green. But away from the spotlight she’s misunderstood, finds Richard Godwin

When I arrive to have tea with Eva Green at Sketch, she has already taken command of a plush velvet sofa. One hopes to retain a certain cool when meeting an actress, particularly a French one, particularly one so devastating, and yet, I can’t help noticing, the only chair I can politely take is no higher than a badger. ‘It’s like Alice in Wonderland,’ she laughs, clearly happy to play the spectral queen as I perch at her feet. Or perhaps it’s simply the spell Eva Green casts?

Dressed all in black, dyed hair falling over her grey eyes in black strands (she’s a natural blonde), she appears to recede into the shadows. However, what at first seems like Gothic hauteur turns out to be something a little more delicate. She speaks in a soft staccato, with the barest breath of French accent. Occasionally, her voice fades out altogether, as if she is discreetly turning down the volume, but she is also quick to laugh. ‘A friend was telling me recently that people are scared of me,’ she says. ‘That’s the image I give, I guess. When they know me, they see it’s kind of a shyness thing. I don’t know why they’re scared. Is it my hair? The fact I don’t talk much?’ Read the rest of this entry »

Eva Green is casting her spell

Posted by M. in May 11,2012 with 1 Comment

She was the most memorable Bond girl in an age and now relucant star Eva Green is having her wicked way with Johnny Depp in Dark Shadows. She talks to Michele Manelis.

If Eva Green has become Hollywood’s femme fatale du jour, at least she won’t need help with a translation of the job description. She was born and raised in France, but had a bilingual education in England and the American University of Paris. Her clipped British tones came in handy as Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale.

But largely her screen roles since, having made her acting debut in Bernardo Bertolucci’s controversial The Dreamers in 2003, have consisted of queens and witches and a recurring theme: “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.”

In Tim Burton’s gothic farce Dark Shadows Green certainly has fun playing kooky angry witch, Angelique.

The lusty sorceress has cursed Johnny Depp’s Barnabas Collins into vampiredom and left him entombed for 200 years. The film, which shows what happens when Barnabas is exhumed in 1971 and reunites with the immortal Angelique, is a remake of a 60s television series of the same name, a horror soap which had a cult following which included Burton and Depp.

“This role was a gift from heaven,” says Green. “Angelique is absolutely bonkers, and is undoubtedly one of the best roles I’ve ever played. I got really lucky with this film, and to work with Tim Burton was the ultimate fantasy of mine. He’s a genius.” Read the rest of this entry »

Eva Green interview for Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows

Posted by M. in May 10,2012 with 2 Comments

Don’t be fooled by her habit of baring all – the former Bond girl Eva Green is an unexpectedly self-conscious siren. Nisha Lilia Diu meets the star of Tim Burton’s new vampire comedy, Dark Shadows.

By Nisha Lilia Diu

What would you buy Tim Burton for his birthday?

He clearly has all the dark garments and violet-tinted specs a man could need, and the director of Corpse Bride and Edward Scissorhands doesn’t seem the type to make use of a tie.

‘I got him a rainbow beetle,’ says Eva Green, Burton’s leading lady in his new vampire comedy, Dark Shadows. A beetle. Of course.

‘There’s this shop in New York I go to, it has bones and fossils and insects that are like works of art. I have a few on my wall. Some people collect butterflies – I love beetles.’ Did Burton like his beetle? ‘He loved it.’

Eva Green, 31, is a woman of possibly more gothic tastes than her director. It’s as apparent in her acting roles – she’s played several witches, power-hungry princesses and killers of various descriptions – as her dress. Read the rest of this entry »
