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.

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.”

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.”

The Dark Shadows movie is the cover story of the latest issue of magazine Entertainment Weekly. Featuring interviews with director Tim Burton and Johnny Depp (Barnabas Collins), along with other members of the cast and crew, it details the project’s development and confirms the film’s final budget at $125 million, considerably higher than the $60 million figure Variety reported at the end of last year.

“Barnabas extols the virtues of family and rejects people who are insincere and selfish,” explains Johnny Depp. “We wanted to pit this selfless family-first hero against the ‘Me’ decade.” Depp also speaks about filming scene with original Barnabas actor Jonathan Frid: “He was incredibly sweet about my taking on this character… Putting his eyeballs on me for the first time, all decked out as a slightly different version of him… it had to be pretty weird for him.” The issue is available on newsstands now and can also be downloaded in iPad format.

In other movie news, it’s been confirmed that the official tie-in book for the movie, Dark Shadows: The Art of the Film, will now be available in the United States. The large-format hardback book was originally announced for publication in the United Kingdom last November, promising production artwork, interviews and unseen photography. US readers can now pre-order the book by clicking here.
