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.

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.

Creativity can’t be prohibited.

CAMPARI THE BOULEVARDIER

Paris, 1927. After leaving the USA due to Prohibition, the legendary bartender Harry McElhone used its most contested spirit – bourbon – to create this drink. It is said that it is named after the first of its many fans, the editor of the magazine The Boulevardier.

Eva Green is the new face of L’Oréal Professionnel’s Haircare brand. At the interview in Paris, the French actress told us what she thinks about beauty hype and social media.

We met Eva Green in a hotel suite in Paris where she’ll be presented as the new ambassador of L’Oréal Professionnel Haircare brand. The stunning beautiful actress wears a floor-length black Gothic-robe and massive silver rings on her fingers, looking like a mixture of Hell’s Angels jewelry and Harald Glööckler’s clunkers. With this styling, Eva Green, 34 years old, looks less like the Femme Fatale role she often plays. She looks like a vulnerable young woman. Is that intentional? I don’t think so. The French actress is considered very shy and often gestures while speaking with her hands as her rings rattle constantly together.

Q: Eva, you are one of Hollywood’s mega brunettes. What are your hair care secrets?
A: Each role brings a new hairstyle with it. This may damage the scalp or the hair can get dull. I take care of my hair every weekend with special masks and scalp treatments.

Q: Any other beauty tricks?
A: My mother taught me early not to rub dry my wet hair. It splits the hair ends. My mom is so great with hair she could also have a great career as a hairdresser.

Q: Your mother, Marlène Jobert is an actress too. What was her reaction to your career choice?
A: At the beginning, she didn’t know about my choice. My mom didn’t really want me to be an actress.

Q: Why?
A: Because she knows how hard the film business can be sometimes. She was right. Shortly after my first movie “The Dreamers”, studio bosses and agents said that I was fat and advised me to lose weight because I wouldn’t get roles.

Q: That’s hard. How did you handle these critics?
A: I instantly went to my mother to comfort me. It’s still that way. She is my refuge and she takes care of me when I doubt myself. When I’m down, there’s no better place than to go to her house where she cooks for me. I’m a real Mama’s girl.

Q: Is she okay now that you’re an actress?
A: Yes, my mom has resigned and supports me when she can. She travels a lot around with me, comes often to visit me on film sets and accompanies me to premieres.

Q: How do you handle the beauty and fitness hype in Hollywood?
A: It’s not easy and it scares me. Nevertheless, as an actress I must stay in form. My body is my expression. I work together with a personal trainer who forces me to do push-ups etc. and I try to eat healthy food. But I am French. Red wine and cheese are must haves.

Q: Many stars posts their food on Instagram…
A: Social media makes me sick. In my opinion, these self-expressions simply suck. It’s so much better to stay mysterious. The world out there doesn’t have to know everything about me. What is so exciting about how I look while shaving my legs or in the toilet?

Q: But you like to present yourself on the red carpet. Smokey eyes are your trademark. How do you put on makeup privately?
A: Really? I had to adjust but now I see every red carpet appearance as a film role. Privately, I don’t often use makeup. Maybe because I absolutely have no talent for it. But when I go for dinner, I use red lipstick.

And then there’s Eva Green.

“Eva Green is the biggest bad ass on the planet,” the Rizzoli & Isles star told me at Women In Film’s Crystal + Lucy Awards, adding, “She is totally my girl crush.”

Harmon has yet to meet the Penny Dreadful star. She said with a smile, “I’m too scared.”
