The elusive Eva takes time to talk to MiNDFOOD about her love of music, what she lives for and where she goes to escape.

Currently starring in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, the fabulously glamorous and offbeat Eva Green, 36 (article corrected to Eva’s correct current age as of publication; original article contained the incorrect age of “38”), talks to MiNDFOOD about myriad subjects – from whether she’s ‘hot’ enough for Hollywood to her childhood fear of clowns. A former Bond Girl (Casino Royale) and regular on the TV show, Penny Dreadful, was born in Paris. She exudes an old-fashioned mysterious quality rarely seen in modern actresses, that same quality has guaranteed her a career in film.
 
Miss Peregrine is described as mysterious, smart and tough. Some might would say this was a perfect fit.
(laughs) Well, I like to think so. I try.

What do you like about this beloved literary character?
She’s so cool. She looks after all these gorgeous children and smokes the pipe (laughs). And also, it’s the first time I am not playing the love interest.

Do you smoke?
Not anymore. I used to be a smoker but I stopped 3 years ago.

Thinking about the word peculiar – when have you felt peculiar in your life?
I always felt a bit peculiar. I think lots of people have felt at some point quite different. People say I’m weird but I don’t feel weird – so maybe I am weird! (laughs). I have black hair, I felt strange as a child, I was very shy, scared of going to birthday parties and clowns.

What scares you now?
Oh, God, lots of things in this world. I don’t know where to start. Greed, pollution. Greed mostly.

Do you have any pets?
I have a dog but my sister looks after him. He’s a Border Terrier. His name is Mr. Griffin.

How do you get along with your sister?
My sister lives in Italy so I don’t see her very often but we Skype. She has two beautiful children that I adore. She has a vineyard so she makes her own wine. Yeah, it’s very cool.

Here’s the Third Part of our Exclusive Q&A with Eva Green. We thank her for her kindness, candidness and for taking her time to do this Q&A with us. Special thanks goes to her twin sister Joy for once again facilitating this, without whom it wouldn’t be possible. In case you missed the First Part and Second Part of the interview, you can read them HERE and HERE. Thanks for reading and feel free to leave some messages or comments. Enjoy!

 

Your red carpet looks for the past three years has been very simple, sublime and faithful to designer Elie Saab. It’s a stark contrast from your past Alexander McQueen and John Galliano dominated red carpet appearances that were adventurous, playful and iconic. Was the change a conscious decision? And will we still be able to see your playful side on the red carpet?

I wish I could be as brave as Helena Bonham Carter who wore one red shoe and one green shoe to the Golden Globes! I adore her! Unfortunately, not a lot of people have a sense of humour at these events and it has become very “political”…. This said, I do love Elie Saab clothing, it’s very ethereal and magical!

 
 

You are well-travelled and seem to choose to visit unconventional destinations. Is there a place that you haven’t visited yet but is dying to see and experience?

I have always dreamed of visiting the Himalayas. And this year I was lucky enough to travel to Bhutan and Nepal! I was probably African in another life because I’m completely in love with the Continent! In February, I went to Tanzania and discovered the Singita Grumeti Reserves and their Environmental Education Centre. And I was so impressed by their foundation that I have become their Ambassador. Their work, educating children about the environment, is amazing, and could help to change the planet for the better. I’m planning on continuing work with this fabulous organization because what appealed to me the most was their concrete approach to conservation … Once the children have finished the Conservation Workshop, they return to their villages to transmit this precious knowledge not only to their family but to the entire village. I can’t think of a more exciting way to empower children than to teach them that they have the capacity to change their world… which is the first step in making the rest of the world a better place.

The actress, muse of L’Oréal Professionnel, shares with us her indispensable treatments and make-up. And reveals to us her vegetarian advices.

What time do you wake up in the morning?
6:30am or 7am. I have a clock in my head. I never sleep in late, this is my Swedish side.

Do you go out without make-up on?
Yes, most of the time. I make little effort in everyday life, I prefer to play the Invisible Woman and let my skin breathe. Maybe that’s why I make a big fuss about it on the red carpet, with extreme looks.

Is sport a part of your life?
Every day when I wake up, I go for a run or do at least 20 minutes of elliptical machine. It’s essential for my balance.

What are the beauty products that you can’t live without?
The Pro Fiber shampoo and the Re-Charge monodose by L’Oréal Professionnel that help strengthen my hair over time. The very moisturising Magic Cream by Charlotte Tilbury. The skincare products and cosmetics by that make-up artist are extraordinary and innovative. And the lipstick Lady Danger by Mac, an orange-red that highlights the eyes and is enough when we want to turn heads without putting make-up on other parts of the face.

What perspective did your mother bring to your physical appearance?
That of a mama bear, concerned for my happiness and my health. I always saw her put lots of moisturising cream on. She taught me the importance of staying hydrated, including drinking water.

As I promised… I’ve managed to steal some time for talking also with Eva Green! I’ve been really lucky, you must believe me because that night L’Oréal organized a very exclusive party – in which I participated – at the Grand Palais of Paris. The dinner, the location, the atmosphere… How can I describe them to you without being ‘repetitive’ or ‘exaggerate’? Delicious food, real artworks made by Michelin award-winning Chefs, the Salon was set up perfectly creating the ‘magic’ that only L’Oréal is able to create… See for yourself the pictures because they speak for themselves! But… are you curious to know what the beautiful Eva answered to me? I satisfied you immediately! 

How important is your hair for your image and your job? 

My hair is my job. I love strong looks and I like trying out new make-up… It’s almost a game for me!

 

What’s your favourite style? 

I like to have the hair in one side and If I had to choose a style in particular… well, the important thing is that I can see the face very well and the hair has to have soft waves. 

 

How must be the ideal Hairstylist for you? It makes any difference if it’s male or female? 

That’s an interesting question because there’s such many men and women hairstylists! When I was making a film I was used to work with women hairstylists because in my opinion among women there’s an incredible harmony! But it’s different choosing a look for a role rather than for a campaign. I love the hairstylists that are able to dare, man or woman at this point doesn’t make any difference. 

 

Is there a particular hairstyle that you can’t adopt? 

Oh wow…! Yes, sure! There’s one! I would like to cut my hair really short or dye it blonde or blue but I think I’m not going to have a future as a model anymore!

 

What’s your daily beauty routine? 

I tell you immediately that I would like to have the chance to not wash my hair… For me it’s a waste of time but in the real life I wash it every two days. I’m really careful to use specific treatments and I try to avoid using the drier too much! 

 

Do you like ‘selfie’? 

But if I tell you that I discovered them three days ago, do you believe me? The first time a person asked me to take a selfie, I was almost terrified!

Eva Green feels more like herself when she’s ditched her natural hair colour.

The 34-year-old actress is a natural blonde, but usually sports much darker tresses. That’s been the way for many years, with Eva explaining she feels brunette suits her personality much better, so has stuck with in since first reaching for the dye at 15.

“I wanted to change something. You know, like when you go through your teenage years. I hated school. I was a good student, but I just wanted to breathe in something new,” she told WWD. “I was in awe of a friend of my mum, who had dark hair. She was quite weird, beautiful. I was like, ‘Oh wow, I’ll go to the hairdresser and try that.’ So I went there, I dyed my hair blue-black and came back home. It took me a while to get used to it, and then I actually really liked it. I felt more like myself. It’s weird.”

Eva was talking as part of her role as L’Oréal Professionnel international spokesperson. The brand is releasing a new range called Pro Fiber, which aims to help repair damaged hair.

It’s something the star can get on board with because she’s changed her look a lot for roles, including sporting red tresses and experimenting with fringes.

“Hair defines your character, your state of mind. At the moment I’m in a [Tim] Burton film, and it took weeks and weeks to find the right hairdo. It’s kind of a weird character. Her name is Miss Peregrine, so there is a bit of a birdlike hairdo in her. It helps you to create the character when you find the hairdo. It’s also like a costume,” she said.

The actress was also quizzed on her beauty secrets and was happy to let a couple slip. Unfortunately, there is no quick route to her slim physique and porcelain skin – it’s all about being careful.

“Sun cream, protection, food — what we eat is the most important: lots of green vegetables, raw vegetables, organic. Everything has to be organic,” she said.

Eva Green loves extreme shades when it comes to her hair.

The former Bond girl is known for her striking looks and raven hair. Her natural colour is actually dark blonde which the 35-year-old has always found dull so she likes to experiment – but has had some mishaps along the way.

“I’ve dyed my hair black since I was 15. One of my mum’s friends had very dark hair and blue eyes and I just thought, ‘OK, I have to try it!'” she told British InStyle. “I felt more like myself after I made the colour change. I love extreme shades – I’ve been dark blue, a dark brown and even red at one point. That was a challenging shade because it eventually went green!”

One colour Eva would love to try is bright blonde. But just like Kim Kardashian, who had to give up her platinum locks after only a few weeks earlier this year, the actress thinks it would be too much strain on her tresses.

“I’ve done movies with a blonde wig and I’d love to go blonde. But colourists say it would destroy my hair because of how much I’d have to bleach it,” she explained. “My hair got very damaged because it’s super straight and I always use tongs to give it texture. I’ve just had the new L’Oréal Professionel Pro Fibre Revive in-salon treatment – it makes your hair shiny and healthy.”

Eva likes to be experimental when it comes to her make-up looks too, although it wasn’t always the case.

“I was shy until I was 16 and started at the American School of Paris. It was a chance to be a new me,” she said. “I had new black hair and would match my eyeshadow with my clothes so I’d wear purple or green. It was very theatrical.”

Eva Green is like a vampire because she has to be so careful in the sun.

The 35-year-old actress has completely embraced her ultra pale skin, which means she goes to great lengths to protect it. Even when there is no threat of sun she slathers on sun protection as she knows how sensitive her skin can be.

“I’m like a vampire. I have to wear sunscreen or I look like a prawn! Even in winter I wear SPF30 – Skinceuticals Brightening UV Defence SPF30 and La Roche-Posay Anthelios Face Anti-Shine Dry Touch Gel SPF50+ are my favourites. It’s easier to apply make-up over the top of SPF30 than 50, which can be thick,” she told British magazine InStyle. “I have thin, fragile skin so I’m not a big fan of exfoliating and I don’t tend to get facials either.”

That’s not the only way the French star cares for herself. She’s also very particular about what she will and won’t eat, something she thinks many other people could learn from her.

“My diet is very LA; I eat mainly organic food. The amount of pesticides in our food is outrageous and so many people aren’t aware of what they’re eating,” she explained. “I drink lots of juices and eat kale, and have loads of energy as a result. I’m reading a great book by Dr Joel Fuhrman called Super Immunity about how you can cure all sorts of diseases with food.”

Alongside this, Eva works out regularly. For her exercise it’s just about keeping her body lean though, it’s more how it cares for her wellbeing that she likes.

“I run outside to help with my nerves. It’s a good way to get rid of your demons. Gyms are a bit depressing. You feel like a hamster on a wheel,” she said.

Woman of mystery Eva Green, who stars in a major hair campaign for L’Oréal, shares her secrets

With her inky cascading over pale shoulders, Eva Green—famous for her role as James Bond’s one true love Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale—is becoming the go-to leading lady for all things brooding. Early next year, she’ll play the title character in macabre master Tim Burton’s Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children; next May she returns as the demon-tormented Vanessa Ives in Penny Dreadful’s third season. And now, L’Oréal Professionnel has tapped the French actress as its spokesperson for a new intensive hair treatment range. “It’s a revolution,” she says, wearing a long black dress, obsidian nail polish and smudgy kohl eyeshadow during the launch at the Le Meurice hotel in Paris. “It takes your hair from f-cked up to beautiful, strong, healthy.” The taxidermy-collecting star fits into Burton’s quirky world quite honestly. Unafraid of ghosts and ghouls, here’s what really causes her fright: “Not being loved…being rejected,” she says, revealing a tender truth beneath the dark facade.

Green’s Gothic Beauty Tips
Go Deep: “As a teenager, I was dark blonde. I was going through a shy phase, and I wanted to change something. My mum’s friend had black hair, and I decided to try it. I feel now that it’s more me.”
Do Blood Red: “I love M.A.C Lady Danger lipstick for all occasions. The matte finish lasts for hours.”
Shun the Sun: “I never go out without an SPF of at least 30. It’s the key to dodging aging.”

Resurrect damaged hair with the latest regenerating treatment
After 15 years of research, L’Oréal Professionnel has finally solved the beauty world’s mane dilemma: how to make a pricey reparative salon treatment last beyond your next wash. Pro Fiber’s molecular mix, dubbed APTYL 100, rebuilds frayed strands and then seals itself inside hair with a protective film. After your initial spa-style pampering using one of three hair-care systems (Revive, Restore or Reconstruct), a for-pros-only dose of the juiced-up activator locks in smoothness for up to four washes. An at-home five-piece range includes a booster that recharges results for another four-wash cycle, with lustre that lasts six weeks—until your next appointment.

Eva Green’s skin didn’t fare well in the harsh Irish winter.

The French actress is playing Miss Peregrine in Tim Burton’s Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, which hits cinema screens next year.

Tim is known for his kooky plots and visuals, and Eva’s hair will not disappoint.

“The role I’m playing now is quite cool. My hair is kind of bonkers. It’s a 40s style with a twist. I also loved my look in another movie I starred in, called Cracks. It’s set in the 30s – all high-waisted pants and bobbed hair,” she told the British version of Marie Claire.

Eva is used to having her hair styled and her make-up applied on set, and she looks equally as glamorous when she hits the red carpet.

Not all of her projects have been as kind on the 35-year-old’s looks though. She’s known for her alabaster skin, which looks extra striking next to her raven locks, but while filming hit TV show Penny Dreadful her skin took a bit of a beating.

“Filming in Ireland last winter really took its toll on my skin,” she revealed. “I rely on a good, fragrance-free make-up remover from Cetaphil or Avène and apply a cold cream to replenish my skin. I always wear SPF, but find factor 50 is too pale and thick, so I use SkinCeuticals Brightening UV Defense SPF 30. I love Sisley’s treatments, too.

“Make-up can be dangerous when you have pale skin – sometimes I can look like Morticia Addams!”

Eva Green says wearing lipstick helps her feel “comfortable”.

The 35-year-old actress is known for her glamorous appearance and always brings out her inner femme fatale when she hits the red carpet. A major part of her look is sultry make-up and the stunning brunette reveals that she could never go au naturel with her pout.

“I’m a huge lipstick fan,” she confided in the British edition of InStyle magazine. “It’s the one thing I always wear. I can go out with very little mascara and just red lips and feel totally comfortable. YSL Beauty has beautiful strong, bright shades.”

Just as Eva doesn’t mix up her make-up look too much, she stays faithful to one fragrance. For many years she’s used Santa Maria Novella’s Melograno, even feeling it’s become “a part of” her. When it comes to looking after her body, she sticks to moisturiser from Sisley.

But Eva isn’t just stylish off screen; in action flick 300: Rise of an Empire she went gothic glam with kohl-smudged eyes and full battle gear. While she loved the look, Eva admits that some of her character’s outfits weren’t practical for her energetic scenes.

“I always try to take a hand in the costumes because you have to be comfortable,” she previously explained to UK magazine ShortList.

“But my hair actually got caught in one of the outfits I wore. I was in the middle of this huge fight scene and had to go, ‘Oh f**k, wait a second.'”

There’s a dreamlike quality about Eva Green. Her stunning dark looks and impenetrable smoky eyes appear almost unreal, belonging in a whimsical fairy tale, or a Tim Burton set. Her on-screen characters only elevate the intrigue, from James Bond’s wayward lover in Casino Royale (2006) to a creepy clairvoyant on TV’s favourite horror-drama,Penny Dreadful. In Green’s make-believe world she’s always confident, alluring and not without an evil streak. “But I wouldn’t call myself self-confident in real life,” she admits. “It’s always been a fantasy for me to play powerful women — with some cracks in their personality — because I am not like that.” And though she’s found firm footing as Hollywood’s go-to femme fatale, she’s not entirely thrilled about it. “I don’t like being put in a box,” she says. “I’m many things.” Here, she gives us a glimpse of some of those things, as well as her inner demons, her beauty rituals and the big, bad Hollywood beast.

On inhabiting Tim Burton’s universe

“He’s like a child; happy and easygoing with a passion that is contagious. In Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children [out next year], my character is like a dark Mary Poppins. It’s a beautiful story set in the ‘40s and all the other roles are played by children — this was my first time working with children, and that was a bit of a challenge. The movie is slightly bonkers, but in a poetic way.”

On her red-carpet ritual

“The last thing I do before stepping onto the red carpet is put on some perfume. I’ve been very faithful to this brand called Santa Maria Novella. They have a fragrance called Melograno that’s very simple, and very me.”

On being the new spokesperson for L’Oréal Professionnel

“My hair is thin, fragile and tortured every day. My hairdresser always uses L’Oréal Professionnel hair products. I tried their deep moisturising Pro Fiber treatment, which is magical, and their new Wet Domination by Tecni.ART styling range. I also love oils, both for the body and the hair. I use L’Oréal’s Mythic Oil twice a month — leaving it on overnight and shampooing the next morning.”

On surviving Hollywood

“It’s a tough business. As an actor you have to keep your vulnerability for your roles, and at the same time, you have to build an armour around yourself because there are so many… I have to find a polite word… arseholes. You have to have faith in yourself and remain strong. And, if you find that you’ve lost your passion one day, I think you should move on to something else.”

Mujer Hoy seems to think that Algeria and Nigeria are the same country… Come on, folks! In this day and age, journalists can do a little research with the help of the Internet before posting n’importe quoi… The fine people from those two diverse and culturally rich countries would appreciate it. And so would be, Eva Green fans.

Eva talks about her shyness, being cast as Isabelle in The Dreamers, how it didn’t work out between her and von Trier and why she didn’t star in The Antichrist, dying her hair as a teen, and L’Oréal.

She’s got dark hair and mesmerizing blue eyes: Eva Green know how to captivate an audience, whether she’s playing a Bond girl, a dark Tim Burton character, or a very gloomy Vanessa Ives on Penny Dreadful. There’s a sense of mystery to her beauty, an essence I try to decode in this candid chat with L’Oréal Professionnel’s new international spokesperson.

1) How important is hair to an overall look?

Everything. I mean, skin of course is important, but a hair do can define who you are and what you look like. For me, as an actor… it’s major. It defines the character. It helps you define the role. In everyday life I’m terrible with my hair. I can’t do anything, so I let it down. It’s very straight, so a side-parting is all. If you go to the hairdresser, it makes you feel confident. Good hair makes you feel confident.

2) How does it feel to represent a brand like L’Oréal Professionnel?

It’s such a cool, iconic brand. Since I was very little I’ve seen L’Oréal Professionnel products at hair salons. It’s quite a weird feeling, but I’m happy that I’m now on board!

3) Could you describe you style in one word?

Everything.

(I’ve got to say, I’ve never received an answer like that before and it just goes to show how versatile the actress really is.)

4) Why did you choose to go from being blonde to black at a young age?

I wasn’t exactly blonde. I was in the middle and I don’t like being in the middle. I feel like my mom had dark hair, pale skin, and blue eyes, so I thought let’s try that. I didn’t tell my mother. I went to the hairdresser when I was 15 and dyed my hair. It was a strong statement.

5) What is your favorite feature?

Oh god, I don’t know. My hands.

5) Three beauty essentials that you always have in your bag?

Contact lenses, because I’m completely blind, a fragrance (Santa Maria Novella), and red lipstick.

6) Have you ever been to India?

My god, no! It’s my dream to go there. I was in Sri Lanka last year, but I couldn’t make it to India.

7) Is there something you’d like to do when you’re here?

I need 3 months to explore your country. But yeah, I want to go to Rajasthan. There’s so many places… it’s another world: the spices, the colors. It’s a whole other world. It’s magical.

8) What is your favorite red carpet hair do?

I would say the safest for me would be side-parting and hair on one side. It’s always a safe option.

Eva leaves us wanting more! We’re excited to see what she and L’Oréal Professionnel are going to do together.

Miss Malini’s Audio interview with Eva:

Eva Green is a multitasking maven. She recently took time out from filming the Tim Burton movie “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” to appear at the press launch in Paris of the new L’Oréal Professionnel Pro Fiber line. Green might have been named the international face of the L’Oréal-owned professional hair-care brand just a few months ago in late January, but hair has played a leading role all her life. The actress, sporting a long black Hervé Leroux dress, sat down with WWD at the Le Meurice Hotel to have a discussion.

WWD: You first dyed your hair dark around the age of 15. What made you do that?

Eva Green: I wanted to change something. You know, like when you go through your teenage years. I hated school. I was a good student, but I just wanted to breathe in something new. I was in awe of a friend of my mum who had dark hair. She was quite weird, beautiful. I was like: ‘Oh wow, I’ll go to the hairdresser and try that.’ So I went there, I dyed my hair blue-black and came back home. It took me a while to get used to it, and then I actually really liked it. I felt more like myself. It’s weird.

WWD: Has hair played an important part of your character creation at work?

E.G.:  Hair defines your character, your state of mind. At the moment I’m in a Burton film, and it took weeks and weeks to find the right hairdo. It’s kind of a weird character. Her name is Miss Peregrine, so there is a bit of a birdlike hairdo in her. It helps you to create the character when you find the hairdo. It’s also like a costume.

WWD: What have been some of the interesting hairstyles you’ve had during your career?

E.G.: In “Dark Shadows” I wear a blonde wig. I was really worried at the beginning, … I was not sure [but] Tim Burton was like: ‘No, no I want you blonde.’ That made total sense for the character and actually was a very good idea, kind of a trashy Barbie. And that helps you tremendously to find the character.

I dyed my hair red six years ago, seven years ago for a role that I ended up not doing, but you feel different. I had a fringe, as well, a year ago for a movie called “White Bird in a Blizzard.” I kind of loved it. It’s a tiny detail, but you feel different. It’s funny.

WWD: What have been some of your favorite roles?

E.G.: I loved a movie called “Cracks” by Jordan Scott. It’s a small film, lots people haven’t seen it, unfortunately, but it’s a beautiful, passionate love story between a swimming teacher in the Thirties, that I play, and one of her students. I really loved that story. It was kind of a gift for an actor.

WWD: Are there any sorts of roles you’ve not gotten to play that you’d like to try?

E.G.: Yes, of course. It’s always hard as an actor because you’re being put in a box. Lots of journalists ask me: “Oh my God, why do you just play evil characters or dark characters?” I feel like I’ve played other characters, maybe that’s what you’ve seen only of me. I like complex characters, complicated people. In darkness you have light; you have different facets in the darkness. So maybe a comedy or something that people don’t expect me in — but the comedy is always a challenge, and it’s rare and it’s quite funny. But yeah, I’d like something kind of [like a] dark comedy.

WWD: Any directors you’ve not worked with yet that you’d like to try?

E.G.: I don’t know where to start. So many. Something simple. I’m sick of people saying that I do femmes fatales or I’m sexy. So I think I have to be careful now and play dirty hair, raw, a Mike Leigh movie or something, you know. No lipstick. I don’t know. Dirty hair for L’Oréal.

Something not too sophisticated, that’s what I mean. In “Penny Dreadful” I’m not very sophisticated. It’s not glamorous, let’s say.

WWD: What about stage acting?

E.G.: I’ve done plays. I get very nervous. I had a few blanks on stage so now I’m like, “Oh my God.” But it’s very electric, and it’s true that there is something kind of magical because there is a direct response with the audience. You’re not cut in the editing room. You are your own master, so that’s great but that’s really scary at the same time. I have to gain confidence again.

WWD: Back to beauty, what are your secrets?

E.G.: Sun cream, protection, food — what we eat is the most important: lots of green vegetables, raw vegetables, organic. Everything has to be organic.
