Help for Carissa

Posted by Stef in Jul 22,2011 with Comments Off

As you guys know, we don’t post many non-Eva related things here, but this is really important and I’d like to ask for your help. Some of you may already be familiar with Jaylen who started Jaylen’s Challenge to try and help stop bullying in schools. If you aren’t familiar with Jaylen’s mission, I highly recommend checking out his website and learning more about him and his mission. I promise you that you will be glad you did.

Now for the reason I am writing today…In addition to Jaylen’s mission to end bullying, he is currently doing a very sweet thing by trying to help out his friend Carissa Bodner who was recently in a horrific accident. Carissa was participating in a group bike ride when a drunk driver, speeding at more than 60+ miles per hour, ran into her and a group of other cyclists. She was the first one hit and was thrown from her bike and ended up unconscious in a water-filled ditch. She sustained a multitude of injuries including, but not limited to, brain damage, blood on her brain, swelling of her brain, damage to her spleen and her right eye, her jaw was broken jaw in 4 places and has been wired shut, broken arm, broken leg, fractures in her pelvis and tailbone, torn ligaments in her right knee, road rash across her back and the list goes on and on. She was in a coma for a while and has also suffered from pneumonia and seizures due to the injuries she sustained in the accident.

Donations would be great, but I know times are tough and not everyone has the means to help financially and that’s perfectly fine. If you can help by spreading the word and the link to Jaylen’s Carissa page (link below) through your blogs, Twitters and Facebooks though, that would be really great because it will allow for more people to hear about Carissa’s struggles and hopefully bring in more help for her. You can also help by simply saying a prayer for her or sending her a sweet message on Facebook to brighten her day. I’m sure she would really appreciate all the kind thoughts and good vibes that you guys can help send her way.

Eva Green Concerned About Her Looks

Posted by Stef in Mar 20,2011 with 6 Comments

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.”

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.

Empire’s 100 Sexiest Movie Stars

Posted by M. in Oct 16,2009 with 5 Comments

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.
