Actress Eva Green has a hard time coping with the stresses of being an actress. From her looks to tough auditions, Eva Green freaks out about getting it all wrong.
“I hate my bum. I’m like everybody,” Eva confessed. “I only really decided to act because I am crazy, it is quite masochistic.
“I am aware of the whole sexy French girl thing. You become a product and people typecast you. It is very stressful, because you take it personally if you are not right for a part and you question yourself a lot.
“There’s always something wrong,” Eva said referencing casting directors at auditions.
“They’re brutal, it’s a jungle. It’s as if you’re a facade, like a model who can’t act.
“When I’m prepping and really working on it, I’m freaking out — that I’m not going to measure up, it’s not going to work. That I’m going to look so bland, and I have no idea what the director wants. I freak out completely.”
3. Vesper Lynd (Eva Green) – ‘Casino Royale’
Nervously attractive and elegant at the same time, Eva Green’s Vesper Lynd was one of the many high points in “Casino Royale.” Though ultimately treacherous, she was a Bond girl that girlfriends could love.
Eva is listed as #18 on the Los Angeles Times Magazine 50 Most Beautiful Women in Film list. Click here to view the full list and to cast your vote.
It proved an enchanting evening for soprano Celine Byrne as she strolled on to the stage with one of the world’s most famous tenors.
The Naas-born singer shared the bill with Catalan tenor Jose Carreras as the 17th century gardens of Kilruddery House in Bray, Co Wicklow, played host to a rapt audience of more than 5,000 people.
BAFTA-winning French actress Eva Green, currently filming Camelot in Wicklow and who starred in Bond film Casino Royale, turned a few heads as she was escorted to her seat. As dusk fell on the Sugarloaf the first strings of the orchestra began to swell.
In a ‘Web Exclusive’ Vanity Fair magazine listed The Top 10 Most Stunning French Actresses – among them Eva Green, of course.
Name: Eva Green.
At her most stunning … in Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Dreamers (2003), loafing around a fabulous Parisian apartment naked, embroiled in an incestuous threesome as the May 68 riots rage in the streets below. Ah, Paris…
Camelot was never this raunchy! King Arthur’s a swordsman par excellence — with the ladies, that is — in the new ten-part TV series Camelot.
The show, from the makers of The Tudors, starts shooting next month on location in Ireland, with Eva Green as sorceress Morgana la Fay, Jamie Campbell Bower as King Arthur and Tamsin Egerton as Guinevere.
Joseph Fiennes is in the early stages of negotiations to play Merlin.
The producers claim that the drama is based on Thomas Malory’s Le Morte d’Arthur.
Casino Royale star Eva Green is set to present the Best Film gong at the upcoming London Evening Standard British Film Awards.
Green, 29, is best known for playing the role of spy Vesper Lynd in the 2006 movie opposite Daniel Craig.
The films nominated for best film are three low-budget movies – Bright Star, Fish Tank and Helen.
Other stars presenting an award at the bash on February 8, which is being held at the London Film Museum, include British actress Sally Hawkins and Ray Winstone’s daughter Jaime.
Eva Green was another star gleaming on the red carpet thanks to her eye-catching evening gown. She arrived at the London Film Festival for the premiere of Cracks wearing this sequinned number by Donna Karan. Although the claret colour isn’t complimented by Eva’s tomato red lip, it’s got glamour written all over it.
Vote for Eva if you think she wore this dress bettern than model Iman.
Marlène Jobert, at 68, was voted the “ideal grandmother” according to the French.
Quirky, gothic, witty and undeniably beautiful, Eva is bound to appear in lists like this for years to come, if only for playing the woman who broke James Bond. The fact that she’s French only adds to her appeal, but to be honest, just look at her – as director Bernando Bertolucci put it, she’s “so beautiful, it’s indecent”.
Most alluring as… Vesper Lynd. Do you remember that purple dress? Of course you do.
Interests include… Collecting art, visiting museums and playing the flute.
Anouk is letting us know that Eva is featured in the July issue of Studio Ciné Live (Public Enemies/Harry Potter on the cover) with a brand new photo taken right before the Amfar Party. She can’t provide scans, so if anyone else can, please contact me!
Pourquoi avez-vous choisi Charlotte Gainsbourg ?
J’ai fait quelques auditions, notamment avec Eva Green, mais son contrat était trop compliqué. Charlotte Gainsbourg s’est imposée en s’investissant beaucoup dans le projet. C’est une personne très timide. Nous n’avons pas beaucoup parlé mais elle a immédiatement adhéré au film. De manière générale, j’ai toujours préféré diriger les actrices plutôt que les acteurs.
