Part I can be found over here.
We thank Eva and her twin sister Joy (our intermediary) copiously for making this possible! Enjoy!
6. Who do you think are your best advisors? Agents, friends, family, instinct, …? What is your life motto?
Eva Green: My best advisor is my own instincts, my first impression when I read a script – it’s like love – you can’t explain it, your heart goes boom or not…. My Life’s motto is, “Stay pure in the midst of impurity” (my little fortune from my Yogi teabag from today – very relevant for this crazy business)
7. Briefly describe us an ideal day for you.
Eva Green: My ideal day would be to wake up early, go for a long walk in the mountains, get lost, and escape…
8. After the preparation for “300” have you put more exercise in your life? For example do you go jogging in London?
Eva Green: I don’t have a trainer at home who kicks my ass for four hours every day, so I don’t have the discipline to work out like I would if I were preparing a film… but I do run each morning, more for my head than for my body, I think…
9. What do you consider as the most difficult/unpleasant and the most pleasant part in your job?
Eva Green: The most agreeable part of this job is travelling all over the world, discovering new people and places, you don’t get bored with routine, and the preparation – researching a role, working with my coach, it’s even more rewarding than actually shooting.
The most unpleasant part of the job is that you are constantly doubting yourself because people are continually judging you and as you can’t please everyone, you really need to follow your heart and put earplugs and blinders on sometimes…
10. It’s been almost 10 years after your debut with “The Dreamers”. Looking back at this 10-year career how do you feel? Are there things that you regret? Looking ahead in the future what are your major challenges? What advice would you give to a young actress/actor starting her/his career?
Eva Green: My only regret is that I haven’t done a comedy – a black comedy, of course – but I would really, really love to do something wacky and weird…

The cabler has picked up 10 new episodes — up two from its freshman run — for 2015.
Showtime is going back to the horror well.
The premium cable network has renewed Penny Dreadful for a second season of 10 episodes — up two from its freshman run — for 2015.

Let the record show that Eva Green—she of the so-sexy-it-was-banned-by-the-M.P.A.A. Sin City: A Dame to Kill poster—has no qualms about on-screen nudity, at least judging by the five or so films in which the former Bond girl has bared all. That being said, the actress—who is currently slaying Showtime audiences with her deliciously complex (and fully dressed) spiritualist on Penny Dreadful—would like to point out one thing to the M.P.A.A.: “I’m not actually naked on the poster.”
While chatting to VF Hollywood today about the forthcoming episode of Penny Dreadful, during which many things will be revealed about her medium mystérieux, the actress took a moment to discuss the the recent Sin City hullabaloo. “Oh, my God, I heard about that,” she said of the uproar. “I find it a bit odd. It seems like it’s all just publicity—a lot of noise for nothing. You have so many more violent things in the movie business and this is kind of soft. I’m not naked. It’s suggested.”
By the way, Green loves the graphic artwork, which shows the French actress in a diaphanous robe and bright-red lipstick with a handgun cocked at her side. “I find it really sexy, actually,” she said. “It’s kind of beautiful. But if it shocks people, I don’t know what to do about it. I don’t want to upset anybody.” If she has any concern about her image on the now-infamous ad, it’s that audiences will correlate her with one particular kind of character: “I don’t want to be seen as just the femme fatale or put into some silly box. I hope that people will have enough imagination.”
And if they are in short supply, they need not look further than the aforementioned horror drama to see Green tackle the kind of complexly brilliant character for which most actresses would kill. Talking just hours after it was announced that Showtime renewed the series for a second season, Green confirmed to us that she would be returning as her eerie alter ego, Vanessa Ives, for the show’s second go-round. Having already communicated with the dead, hunted demons, unsettled mortals, and gone full exorcist in a six-minute séance worthy of its own Emmy, Green added with a laugh, “Although, I have no idea what I’ll be doing.”

We thank Eva and her twin sister Joy copiously for making this possible! Enjoy!
First of all we feel privileged that you so willingly accept to devote some of your scarce free time to complete once again the Q&A session for EvaGreenWeb.com. It says something about your humble character despite your tremendous success. Thank you so much.”
Here are our new questions:
1. After a tiresome period you will at last have some time to relax. What do you enjoy most in these breaks? Being lost in the crowd? Family time? Exotic destinations?
Eva Green: 1. I’m usually exhausted after a shoot, so I go somewhere beautiful to relax like Sri Lanka (I recently climbed “The Sīhāgiri », the Lion Rock, the most amazing view that I have ever seen anywhere), I like going somewhere I can explore, rather than lying down like a turnip on the beach…
2. In “300: Rise of an empire”, even though the critics for the film were controversial, the comments about you were dithyrambic (worldwide). Did you expect it? How do you feel about it? You’re probably going to be a “recherchée” (= in demand, sought-after) for blockbusters in the future. Does it mean “no more indie films”?
Eva Green: You never know how a film will be received and of course that type of film targets an action audience – it was fun to do because I got to train and fight, and Artemisia was a really over the top character… As far as Indie films go, I adore doing them – that’s where my heart is – unfortunately they rarely get the attention they deserve. You always hope when you do an Indie film that it will magically take off and become a huge success…
3. Are you going to visit Comic Con in San Diego for “Sin City 2” as you did last year for “300”?
Eva Green: I don’t know if I’ll be going to Comic Com this year…
4. “Penny Dreadful”: What kind of novelty this TV series brings us? What was actually new for you?
Eva Green: “Penny Dreadful” is set in Victorian London with great characters who interact with some of Literature’s great characters – Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, and Dracula. My character’s name is Vanessa Ives… She is a non-conformist, an individualist, hungry for life, at a time when women were repressed… Vanessa is a kind of magnet in the series, she draws all the other characters around her in their quest to find Sir Malcolm’s daughter…. Vanessa is at war with the demons inside her, possessed by some obscure force but she has such an amazingly strong will that she is able to keep it dormant… Except those times when Temptation arises…. Vanessa exults in the power and freedom her possession has allowed her, but she is alienated and alone because of it…
This role has been the most demanding – on every level – that I have ever done. Vanessa is the most complicated and exciting character that I have ever played.

Our statement about the Eva Green Ava Lord Sin City: A Dame to Kill For poster…
It has been officially announced that Ms. Green’s Ava Lord Sin City: A Dame to Kill For poster is officially banned. It is with great sadness that a pair of covered breasts are deemed more dangerous than a gun. In this regard, @a_kaufman, one of the film’s producers, has cleared straight to EGW that the poster “was rejected for in-theater marketing. It will now live forever online.”. There is no point in blowing this matter out of proportion.
Sadly, this poster has generated quite a number of attention for the past few hours. While there are a lot of people and fans alike defending the poster and Ms. Green herself, there has been a good amount of prudes and perverts that has come out of the woodwork. Saying disrespectful things towards Ms. Green over this poster is uncalled for and unnecessary. This is a character poster portrayed by an actress, not a poster of an actress as herself. We could learn a thing or two from Ms. Green herself. In her own words: “Nudity is just another costume. Perverts might think otherwise.”
Thank you for your concern and understanding.
Welcome to the latest of Eva Green Web! This beautiful and sassy new look was created by the incredibly talented Ray and we hope you will all enjoy it as much as we do. As much as we loved the last design, it had been online for a year and we thought it was time to freshen things up a bit with another one of our favorite photoshoots of Eva. Please let us know if you spot any errors so we can fix them ASAP.
