Eva Green feels alive when she travels to exotic places. The French actress, the new spokesperson for L’Oréal Professionnel, also said that Helena Bonham Carter inspires her. ‘Because she is crazy in a positive way’. In this interview she talked about her projects and one of her dreams – to be 100% confident…
 
What changed in Eva Green from the movie The Dreamers to the Eva today?
I don’t think I’ve changed that much. I’ve always been very reserved and I still am. I’m more at ease in interviews now –and because I work in this crazy business, I’m a little more extroverted…but I don’t think I am as confident as I would like to be. That’s my goal at the moment.
 
To be 100% confident?
It’s my biggest dream, to be 100% confident.
 
When you’re not working, how do you spend your time?
I find peace when I’m walking in nature. I go to far away places. I went to Sri Lanka and South Africa last year. When I travel, it’s the moment when I think ‘Oh my God, I’m alive, I’m very lucky to be alive.’ That’s what I like.
 
Have you ever been to Brazil?
No but I would love to know your country. I love Brazilian music and I know Brazilian women are very pretty, always in shape and take good care of themselves.
 
Speaking of beauty, how do you take care of yourself?
When I’m working, I have to use a lot of makeup but in real life, I’m very simple. I drink lots of water, I exercise, I hydrate my skin the best I can and I don’t wear much makeup.
 
What is your secret to staying beautiful?
My God! I wish I knew the secret but I think that the condition to be happy, is to love and be loved. That’s what really matters.
 
Any actress who inspires you?
I love Helena Bonham Carter because she is crazy in a positive way. She is proud to be who she is. She’s not like others, she is original, unique.
 
What are your next projects?
At the moment, I’m shooting the Tim Burton film Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and I will be back for another season of Penny Dreadful. Then only God knows.

Why the French actress is “becoming very LA.”

Sometimes Penny Dreadful star Eva Green wishes she could switch places with her twin sister and enjoy the luxury of anonymity. “She has an amazing life in Italy. She’s married to a count,” Green says. “I wish I could be her sometimes. She’s more down to earth.” When the French actress wants to disappear–a difficult feat after her mega-sexy turn in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For–she puts on her “teenager” uniform: “black t-shirt, black leggings, no makeup.”

But her signature jet-black hair, red lips, and, let’s be honest, cleavage make it impossible to blend in. We want to know all of her beauty secrets. Here, Green shares her thoughts on hair, nutrition, and nude scene prep.

ON THE PERFECT RED LIP:

I would do a red lip [on the red carpet], a flashy red lip, bada-boom. Otherwise, I’m useless. I love M.A.C or NARS pigments. Ruby Woo or Lady Danger.

ON SKINCARE:

I’m a vampire; I use a lot of sun cream. Skinceuticals Ultimate UV Defense is very good. The less you go in the sun the better. I moisturize with Avene. It’s a French brand that’s really good.

ON HER HAIR REGIMEN:

I wash my hair quickly. L’Oréal Absolut Repair has amazing conditioner and shampoo; it makes your hair thicker and shiny. I’m not just saying that because I’m a L’Oréal Professionnel ambassador! I dyed my hair for the first time when I was 15 and it stayed. I like dark because it makes my skin pop and it’s more me. I work with Orla Carroll for hair on shoots.

ON NUTRITION:

I’m becoming very LA. I drink lots of water and eat lots of green vegetables. I’m doing lots of juices at the moment. I kind of do apple, kale, carrot. I’ve got a fancy juicer. I started feeling very tired and everybody was like ‘You should try the juicing,’ but I really love it. I felt very weak. It was a revelation. And only organic fruit and vegetables. There’s so many pesticides and shit. I discovered the book by Dr. Fuhrman where he talks about juicing and eating mainly vegetables.

ON NUDE SCENE PREP:

As an actor, it’s not like a porn star. The role is not gratuitous and I kind of detach myself if I have to do a nude scene. For the sequel of 300, I did a lot of core training and that kind of work because my character was a warrior—[it needed] to be believable [that I could] kick some ass. Two or three months of training for five hours a day and I loved it. Your muscles are getting stronger. It’s like a drug almost, you feel addicted, but then on your own it’s so hard. You don’t have somebody kicking your ass every morning. I go for a run every day, I do elliptical, I do stretching. I run like 30 minutes—it’s for the head.

ON SOCIAL ANXIETY:

I’m like a cave woman. I wish I could hang out in a big social place and being very open, but I’m not like that. Being shy was a real problem in school. I don’t feel very comfortable. I have force myself to go out. At events, it’s part of the job. I see it as a game. Otherwise I’m very invisible. I prefer to float around.
