Thanks to sebastian. This interview makes much more sense!
She ensnared 007, performed occult sacrifices in Arthurian England and, in her latest film, plants a lingering kiss on the still-warm lips of a man she’s just beheaded. So it makes sense that French star Eva Green is now taking me deep into the dark, twisted heart of, erm, one of Britain’s biggest department stores.
“What I do on my days off is go to Selfridges and browse around the furniture department,” she says, her faintly cut-glass (and only vaguely French) voice breaking into a giggle. “Recently I bought a cushion that I’m very happy with. This is the wild life of Eva Green. I’m basically an old lady.”
It’s a pointed reminder that – her all-black clothes and clanking silver bangles aside – the 33-year-old actress isn’t anything like the deranged Gothic heroines she’s played in Casino Royale, Camelot, Dark Shadows, Franklyn and upcoming seafaring CGI spin-off 300: Rise Of An Empire.
Still, as she swearily holds court about punching co-stars and the disappointing lack of male crotch shots in blockbuster cinema, you can’t help but think “basically an old lady” doesn’t quite cover it…
You play Artemisia in 300: Rise Of An Empire. How would you describe her to the uninitiated?
God, I mean, she’s pretty full-on. First of all, she’s a woman at the head of the Navy, which is pretty unusual. She’s ballsy and there’s something very virile about her; she’s gifted with weapons and she’s ruthless. She can’t tolerate morons or cowards. And she’s driven by, and almost blinded by, vengeance.
Did you have any say in her look? There’s a touch of Camden Market about the flowing coats…
[Laughs] With the leather? Yeah, I can see that. I always try to take a hand in the costumes because you have to be comfortable. 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*ck, wait a second.” Read the rest of this entry »

“Nudity is just another costume. Perverts might think otherwise.” – Eva Green
Let us rephrase it… “Banana is just another fruit. Perverts might think otherwise.” – Eva Green Web Staff
If that’s not enough, let us quote Freud: “Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.” And the same goes for a banana.
Eva’s just having a snack. These photos were taken on-set. We don’t post paparazzi pics of her walking down the street. She clearly knew that she was surrounded by dozens of people and that she ran the risk of being photographed. We’re more interested in the period costumes and the locations. Plus, at least she’s eating and not starving herself. Would you feel the same way if that was a sandwich instead of a banana?
PS: These photos have hit the web long before we posted them. We got them thanks to Sebastian who, we’re sure of it, meant no harm, only saw them for what they are, and would never think of disrespecting Miss Green. He’s a regular contributor.
