French actress, Eva Green, right, and partner, New Zealand actor Marton Csokas, arrive for the London Film Festival world premiere of the film, Franklyn, Thursday Oct. 16, 2008, London. The film traces the fates of four characters, Jonathan Preest played by Ryan Phillippe, an atheist vigilante, young artist Emilia played by Eva Green, Milo played by Sam Riley and Gulf War veteran Peter, played by Bernard Hill.
Former Bond girl Green was asked whether she was feeling nostalgic over Bond now that his latest adventure “Quantum Of Solace” was about to hit cinema screens. She said: “I have heard it’s brilliant.”
Eva looks amazing. I swear, I think she could wear a paper sack and no makeup and still be ridiculously beautiful. I like what she’s wearing. It looks fresh and young. And Sam Riley… so pretty and sexy! :heart:
By the way, according to Miss Green’s management, there are no plans to announce yet. “Cracks” will probably launch at Cannes. But we’ll keep you posted.
While you’re visiting, please support, spread the word, tell your friends about it and visit our dear friend mata’s fansite: XFilesMedia.com, for news and lots of photos on the show’s stars: Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny. An awesome fansite that deserves to get known! 😉
And now a “Quantum of Solace” news thanks to Lola. 😉
It’s briefer than a Bond chat-up line, but a clip of footage featuring Daniel Craig and Giancarlo Giannini discussing Vesper Lynd has been posted on the Interweb, and at this point, we’ll take anything!
The gorgeous Miss Green posing as Miss G for a gorgeous photoshoot on the set of “Cracks”. 🙂
Thank you spot! 😉
As mentioned here before, Eva Green plays a schoolteacher in “Cracks”. “It’s quite a dangerous story, there’s a lot of taboos, I play a swimming team teacher who seduces a student,” she said. She’s hoping the film, directed by Jordan Scott (Ridley Scott’s daughter) and set in the thirties, will make the final selection for Cannes next May. “Cracks” doesn’t have a scheduled release date yet.
Here are caps from the trailer:

Thanks to our friend mata for sending in a brand new totally gorgeous Montblanc ad featured in the German magazine Gala.
Translation by mata: “To reflect, to take the time and be inspired by life, to watch people, their behaviour, their gestures. There’s nothing of greater importance for an actor.”
Which Montblanc ad is your favorite so far?
Eva Green and Karl Lagerfeld. Gala launching Picasso Exhibit at the Grand Palais, Paris.
Thanks mata for the heads-up!
John Galliano heeded the call of the wild for Christian Dior on Monday, unveiling his “tribal chic” look for next summer which partnered tame silk chiffon with python and sharkskin.
In a tent packed to the gunnels with 1,500 press and buyers, he sent out a collection heaving with animal pelts and reptile skins cut up into jackets and coats, some ‘au naturel’ in black, camel and grey, but others dyed startling shades of orange and acidulic green.
Leather jackets looked as if they were battle-scarred like Zulu warriors.
Even the micro-mini silk skirts underneath the jackets, sunray pleated and often sheer, needed the legs of a giraffe to carry them off with conviction.
Galliano took his bow at the end in a sober black-trousers-and-waistcoat ensemble, to the resounding applause of a host of celebrity guests, including the ex-wife of Marilyn Manson, burlesque artist Dita Von Teese, the singers Lily Allen and Katy Perry, and actresses Eva Green, Milla Jovovich, Zoe Saldana (our dear mata’s fansite!), Marion Cotillard, Emma Watson and Elsa Zylberstein.
“I love the madness,” shouted Eva Green as she whisked into the Dior show Monday in a gray suit, looking every inch the schoolteacher she plays in her latest movie “Cracks.”
“It’s quite a dangerous story, there’s a lot of taboos, I play a swimming team teacher who seduces a student,” she said. She’s hoping the film, directed by Jordan Scott and set in the Thirties, will make the final selection for Cannes.
Lily Allen, who sat painting her nails with silver varnish from the gift set on her seat, said she’d arrived in Paris this weekend to record some tracks with Gonzalez.
Oscar winner Marion Cotillard of “La Vie en Rose” said she’ll be singing again in “Nine,” a new musical comedy set in the Sixties starring Nicole Kidman and Penelope Cruz that starts filming in October.
Accompanying her was film mogul Harvey Weinstein, who said he’s “in town to scout for a new Quentin Tarantino movie.”
Nearby, Barbara Bush, daughter of the U.S. President, noted she was in town visiting family.
Zoe Saldana, meanwhile, has just wrapped “Avatar” alongside Sigourney Weaver and the remake of “Star Trek,” alongside Winona Ryder. Saldana said her outfits, by costume designer Michael Kaplan, were far from geeky. “I wore very short, short, short dresses, it was petrifying,” she said.
U.S. pop singer Katy Perry is on a whirlwind tour to promote her first single, and is gearing up to release her second.
Emma Watson, or Harry Potter’s Hermione, could have used some magic to clear a throng of photographers and screaming teens who surged ahead of her coming out of the show.
Hobbling towards Place de la Concorde afterwards, a monochrome Roisin Murphy, who had road-tested one of Gareth Pugh’s articulated, armor-like frocks for the occasion, confessed she’d had a difficult time sitting at the show. “It’s not very comfortable,” she said.
Last but not least, Eva and her boyfriend, actor Marton Csokas, are still going steady and strong. They were spotted strolling in Paris yesterday dressed in black. I won’t be posting any photos here, but I thought you’d be happy to have some news of our discreet couple. Marton didn’t attend the Dior show though.
PS: And Tom can relax because Angharad is right behind Eva in the group picture. She’s wearing a blue dress. 😉
More of Eva in all her gorgeous dark glory:
Today I’ve scanned an old issue of Elle Belgium (okay, not that old, it’s from September 2007 so it’s only 1 year old) for our viewing pleasure. The photo used inside the magazine was used in Elle France (thanks Kazou) and Elle Russia (thanks Mirik) last year was well. But the cover is brand new and I must say that I love it to bits!!! 🙂
Unfortunately, this is the Dutch speaking version of Elle Belgium. And I don’t speak Dutch. So, do we have any candidates for a translation? 😉
Oh, and, by the way, the BAFTAs 2008 coloured photo had already appeared in Night and Day last February (thanks Lorna).
Great news! I now have a brand new clip featuring interviews with “Franklyn”s director and also star Sam Riley (gotta love him!). Eva isn’t interviewed in it, but she appears on the video working with Sam. I’ll be uploading the video this weekend if everything’s ok. But, for the time being, enjoy the following caps! 😉
Many thanks to HAS for the heads-up!!! 🙂
