Bond Girl Eva Green has revealed that a sick bucket was on standby on the set of her new film Perfect Sense.

The French beauty wore a figure-hugging lace Pucci gown to the premiere of the film in London’s Curzon Mayfair, where she was joined by co-star Ewan McGregor and director David Mackenzie.

Green plays a scientist who begins a love affair with a chef (McGregor) at the same time as the world is swept by an epidemic of a terrible disease which causes the loss of the senses one at a time. Before losing taste they are struck by an uncontrollable hunger and devour anything they can.

Green revealed: “That was quite intense. I had to eat flowers, lipstick, and toothpaste. But we had a bucket next to us… It was bonkers. But I didn’t die.”

Meanwhile, McGregor trained with professional chefs in Glasgow for the role.

He said: “We had to look like we knew what we were doing. It was a top end kitchen so we had to look like we knew what were we doing technically. So that was important to look at what makes a chef look like he’s a good chef.”

McGregor admitted he hadn’t kept up his cooking skills since.

But the Moulin Rouge star did say he would be keen to play Sir Elton John in his new musical biopic Rocketman, after he was tipped for the part.

McGregor said: “I’d be delighted – send me the script Elton.”

Perfect Sense also stars McGregor’s uncle Denis Lawson, the director’s brother Alastair McKenzie and Trainspotting‘s Ewen Bremner, who all attended the screening.

    Bewitching and bewildering

    Eva Green is French, but an Anglophile who lives in London. She plays wild women, but says she hates shedding her clothes. She’s been the face of Dior, but spurns Hollywood.

    Perfect Sense is in cinemas nationwide in the UK from October 7th.

    Thanks to George, edenLiao and Antigonus for the links. There is no official confirmation yet on whether or not Eva will be a part of the film, but we will post more information as it becomes available.

    The project is based on the book “Too Proud, Too Fragile” by Italian author Alfonso Signorini.

    Niki Caro is writing and directing Callas, a new film about the legendary opera star Maria Callas, based on the book Too Proud, Too Fragile by Alfonso Signorini, who will also take a writing credit on the film.

    The Rome-based De Angelis Group is producing.

    The New Zealand-born Caro, director of such films as Whale Rider, North Country and The Vintner’s Luck, is repped by ICM, which brokered the deal on her behalf and also is representing North American rights on the project.

    Callas’ dramatic life and career has been the subject of a number of documentaries and narrative features. Franco Zeffirelli focused on her later years in 2002’s Callas Forever. Actresses playing Callas also appeared in the TV movies Jackie Bouvier Kennedy Onassis and Onassis: The Richest Man in the World.

    “We fully expect Callas to become one of the most important films in the De Angelis dossier as the source material provided by Mr. Signorini’s book is the most in-depth to date about the life of the controversial opera star. We’ve put together a very strong production team from Niki Caro on to bring this story to screen,” said the De Angelis Group’s Andrea Zoso.

    Thanks to Isabell for the link. Eva looks stunning as Angelique. Can’t wait for more photos to surface.

    Behold the real visage of Johnny Depp’s vampire from Dark Shadows!

    Last week, long-range paparazzi shots of the actor wearing ghostly white makeup, large sunglasses and a pulled down fedora made fans of the original 1966-71 supernatural soap opera bristle nervously, with complaints he looked simply too strange.

    Nevermind that he’s playing a 200-year-old vampire, which is strange enough.

    As you can see from this cast shot, Depp’s bloodsucking pater familias Barnabas Collins actually borrows heavily from the aged-little boy look of original Dark Shadows star Jonathan Frid — not that anyone would be happy to see this guy show up as your prom date either.

    Thanks to Aima for the heads-up.

    Eva Green feels she doesn’t work “as much as [she] should”.

    The 31-year-old French actress is famed for roles in movies such as 2006 James Bond picture Casino Royale.

    Eva, who is currently promoting romantic drama Perfect Sense, admits her parts in films are rather sporadic because she has to feel passionate about a picture before signing on.

    “I’m very picky, I love falling in love with things,” she told Total Film.

    “That’s why maybe I don’t work as much as I should.

    “I need to really be drawn to the character and like the director.”

    Eva was attracted to Perfect Sense, which also stars Ewan McGregor, because it was so innovative. It tells the story of a chef and a scientist who fall in love as an epidemic stealing people’s sensory perceptions begins to spread.

    “It’s very well written, very brave and very biting. I love the black sense of humour and I think the love story is very powerful,” she enthused.
