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 »



Eva Green And Bella Heathcote On Kissing Johnny Depp

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

It’s official: even as a vampire, Johnny Depp is irresistable! Eva Green and Bella Heathcote speak to Entertainmentwise about kissing the superstar in their latest movie…

Most women around the world are powerless to Johnny Depp’s charms, no matter what he’s wearing. And it seems dressing as a 200 year-old vampire can’t put off the ladies either.

The superstar’s character Barnabas manages to attract the attention of just about every female in Tim Burton’s latest gothic comedy ‘Dark Shadows‘.

Eva Green, who plays a witch so obsessed with Barnabas that she buries him alive, spoke to us on the purple carpet at the European ‘Dark Shadows‘ premiere. Read the rest of this entry »



Eva Green: ‘Janis Joplin, Jack Nicholson inspired Dark Shadows role’

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

Eva Green has revealed the inspiration for her eccentric Dark Shadows temptress Angelique Bouchard.

Lara Parker played Angelique on the original Dark Shadowssoap opera, but Green has said that a variety of influences helped her re-create the character for Tim Burton’s film.

“I got inspired by many things, you know? The music of Janis Joplin, Bette Davis in her more bonkers roles. Also, Jack Nicholson sometimes, his great way of being on the edge,” Green said, reports Flicks and Bits.

“It was many things. But also there’s something quite human about her. I think she may be the ‘baddie’ but she’s kind of a damaged character. Damaged by love.”

Green further suggested that she loved playing such an off-kilter character whose motives aren’t entirely clear.

“Angelique is definitely a bit cuckoo. She’s a very big character, she’s mad about Barnabas,” the star explained. “When we first meet her it’s in the 18th century, and she’s a servant working for the Collins family.

“She has this affair with the young master, Barnabas, but he breaks her heart when he rejects her for Josette (Bella Heathcote).

“She’s not very happy. She’s a witch and she takes her revenge by turning him into a vampire and decides to lock him in a coffin for several centuries… as we all do, you know, when we get a bit hurt.”

Green previously said that she relished the chance to work with acclaimed director Burton, who she described as “a filmmaker and a painter that [she] worship[s]“.

Dark Shadows opens on May 11 in the US and the UK.

“Dark Shadows” – European Premiere (London, UK) – May 9, 2012

Posted by M. in May 09,2012 with 1 Comment


Eva Green wore a navy velvet cocktail dress, open toe sandals, and crocodile stamp gold plated cuffs all by Tom Ford.

As she posed with her hands on her hip, Green made sure that the two bright gold cuffs she had worn stood out, and a pair of peep-toe heels could be seen underneath her dress.

In the upcoming film – which is directed by Tim Burton – Green plays Angelique Bouchard, a vengeful witch who plots a vendetta against Johhny Depp’s character, Barnabas Collins and his family.

However, when asked what it was like to kiss her co-star, Depp, Green simply replied: ‘Not bad.’

Watch: Eva Green on shooting her ‘Dark Shadows’ sex scene with Johnny Depp

Posted by M. in May 09,2012 with 1 Comment

Shortly after our interview ended, Eva Green returned to her home planet, happy and ridiculously hot.

I love people like Eva Green. I love actors who not only maintain a personal sense of style but who genuinely seem like they are tuned in to a private radio station, listening to music only they can hear. I love them because we often see that individual personality come out in their work in ways that no one could predict. They give performances that are alive in unexpected ways, and the films they are in are much richer for it.

Eva Green made a pretty serious impact on male moviegoers as soon as Bertolucci introduced her in “The Dreamers,” and there is no doubt… she’s a stunning woman. As she’s gotten older, though, what’s become increasingly clear is that she is not really equipped to be part of the machine. She’s been in some big films, sure, but I don’t get the sense that she has handed herself over, heart and soul, desperate to be a movie star.

Instead, she seems to following her own path, project to project, drawn to certain types of characters. Films like “Womb” and “Perfect Sense” aren’t designed to make her a superstar. Instead, these are movies actors do because they’re compelled by the material, because they like what the film has to say, or because of a filmmaker they trust.

When Green does show up in big films, she’s memorable. I think it was essential for whoever played Vesper Lynd in “Casino Royale” to cast a big shadow even after she’s gone, a presence that would haunt Bond as he moves forward in the series. That’s Green in a nutshell. Say what you will about her, but “forgettable” is not a description people use about her.

In “Dark Shadows,” she plays Angelique Bouchard, the witch whose spurned passions kick off the entire thing, and she was in rare form when we sat down to discuss the movie at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills.

The film opens Friday.

Premiere Of “Dark Shadows” (Hollywood, USA) – May 7, 2012

Posted by M. in May 08,2012 with Comments Off


The former Bond Girl – who plays a witch in Tim Burton’s vampire movie Dark Shadows – stayed with the gothic theme at the LA premiere, with pasty white make-up, black eyes and a long, figure-hugging Tom Ford gown.

Earlier old pals Johnny and Tim joked about a high-voltage sex scene between actor’s blood-sucking oddball and Eva’s spellbinding witch.

Tim said: “We’ve seen enough phony sex scenes that we thought we should make it real for a change.

“It’s expensive sex with a lot of trashing of rooms … It’s fun though.”

Johnny added: “You read it on the page, and it reads a certain way, and you see Eva Green, who is one of the most stunning and brilliant women on the planet, and then suddenly, you’re being strapped together by wires and you know, straps and things like that and then hurled across the room and then bashed into a wall.

“Basically, it was a lot of fun.”

Eva Green finds Johnny Depp’s long fingers ‘extremely sexy’ ‎

Posted by M. in May 05,2012 with 2 Comments

LOS ANGELES – “I think Johnny Depp is extremely sexy, especially with his long fingers (which) can do many things,” said Eva Green – eyes afire with mirth and naughtiness – about her “Dark Shadows” co-star in a recent interview.

Goaded to elaborate on “many things,” the actress purred, and said in French-accented English said: “Sshhh … I won’t tell you.” Eva, who plays a witch in “Dark Shadows,” arrived dressed in character.

“Oohhh,” said Eva when asked about her sex scene with Johnny. Eva and Johnny – who plays a vampire named Barnabas – fly around the room making passionate love – and wreck the place!

Eva laughed and said: “What’s great is that it’s not like the usual sex scene where you go, ‘Oh my God …’ You don’t sleep the night before and you have 20 people in the room. You feel extremely self-conscious and it’s never sexy. This one was just fun. For me, it was like Ken and Barbie having sex—puppet lovemaking. It was very funny. It was hard to keep a straight face.” Read the rest of this entry »
