I’ve been able to add scans from the French magazine Studio Ciné Live that features Eva Green’s filming diary and also about 20 pages dedicated to Tim Burton, Dark Shadows and Michelle Pfeiffer.

RUSSIAN FANS: We need your help because we can’t find the Russian magazine Mini that features Eva on the cover on this month of May and we’d love your contribution.

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.

In the year 1752, Joshua and Naomi Collins, with young son Barnabas, set sail from Liverpool, England to start a new life in America. But even an ocean was not enough to escape the mysterious curse that has plagued their family. Two decades pass and Barnabas (Johnny Depp) has the world at his feet-or at least the town of Collinsport, Maine. The master of Collinwood Manor, Barnabas is rich, powerful and an inveterate playboy…until he makes the grave mistake of breaking the heart of Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green). A witch, in every sense of the word, Angelique dooms him to a fate worse than death: turning him into a vampire, and then burying him alive. Two centuries later, Barnabas is inadvertently freed from his tomb and emerges into the very changed world of 1972. He returns to Collinwood Manor to find that his once-grand estate has fallen into ruin. The dysfunctional remnants of the Collins family have fared little better, each harbouring their own dark secrets. ’Dark Shadows’ stars Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Eva Green, Jackie Earle Haley, Jonny Lee Miller, Bella Heathcote, Chloe Moretz and Gulliver McGrath. The film is released in cinemas May 11th. Look out for a more in-depth interview with Chloe Moretz and Eva Green closer to the films release date.

It’s hard not to fall under the spell of French actress Eva Green. She has an almost hypnotic way of looking at you, seeming to delight in flashing her luminous blue eyes which stand out against her porcelain complexion. Blessed with a sharp intellect and tantalising beauty, Eva is the very definition of the femme fatale. There’s an exotic quality to her. Her conversation oscillates between serious self-analysis and a delightfully random observations on life, just as she can switch effortlessly between French and English. It’s this kind of duality which sharpens the many contradictions that define her personality. Despite her chronic shyness, she often plays strong, domineering women as a means of compensating for her own insecurities. Though she loves acting, she is terrified of auditioning for parts. But whether she’s playing Vesper Lynd in 2006’s ‘Casino Royale,’ or King Arthur’s runtless half-sister Morgan in 2010’s ‘Camelot’ TV series, or sitting down for an interview, Eva Green is irresistibly enchanting, albeit mysterious!

‘I think I confuse people. I have a dark side and I also have this very playful and provocative sensibility – it depends on my mood,’ Green explains. ‘I have a lot of insecurities and so to protect myself I often project this confident air and sometimes people think I’m being cold or arrogant because of this. I would rather just relax and be my natural ironic self and I’m working on that! (Laughs) Maybe I should do a comedy instead of playing all these dark characters I’m drawn to.’

Green’s latest film is ‘Dark Shadows,’ Tim Burton’s remake of the campy Gothic soap opera that was first broadcast on the American ABC network in the late 60s. Eva plays Angelique, a lusty sorceress who is obsessively in love with Johnny Depp’s rakish patrician, Barnabas Collins, whom she turned into a vampire a few centuries earlier after he fell in love with another woman. When Barnabas reawakens in 1972, he re-joins his family descendants (led my matriarch Michelle Pfeiffer), only to find himself pursued once again by Eva’s wacky witch, resulting in acrobatic sex and other mayhem.

Eva Green felt like an “old maid” during her childhood.

The French actress buckled down and studied hard when she was growing up. She admits she was wise beyond her years as she understood the importance of education.

“I went to a prestigious school. I was always studying, you know, I was an old maid!” Eva told the latest issue of UK magazine InStyle. “I didn’t feel like I was blooming, though. I was very shy.”

At 17, Eva enrolled at The American School in Paris where she felt “less judgment” before going on to drama school.

The 31-year-old star’s hard work has paid off as she has played a Bond girl in Casino Royale and also appeared in Kingdom of Heaven.

As she continues to see her star rise in Hollywood, she refuses to promote her status on social networking sites such as Twitter.

“Why would I do that? It’s masochistic. It’s not healthy if you become very self-conscious as an actor,” she said, shaking her head.

Eva can next be seen in Dark Shadows alongside Johnny Depp and Michelle Pfeiffer. She plays the role of powerful witch Angelique Bouchard who imprisons a vampire when he refuses to give in to her advances.
