Rien ne semble arrêter l’ascension d’Eva Green. La brune ténébreuse vient de tourner dans Dark Shadows, de Tim Burton. Au printemps 2012, elle sera aussi à l’affiche de Perfect Sense, de David Mackenzie, avec Ewan McGregor. L’égérie de la joaillerie Montblanc pose pour nous dans ce numéro et se confie.
Avec son visage d’une pâleur extrême et ses yeux bleus immenses qu’elle charbonne, Eva Green a la beauté gothique des peintures symbolistes. A la fois androgyne et coquette, l’ex-James Bond girl déborde d’une énergie qui se noue et se dénoue, à l’image de ses jambes, qu’elle tresse pendant qu’elle se raconte. Fonceuse, perfectionniste, sélective dans le choix de ses rôles, la fille de Marlène Jobert aime le cinéma indépendant, les personnages au charme vénéneux. Comme la prof saphique qu’elle jouait dans Cracks, de Jordan Scott, ou la sorcière séductrice qu’elle incarne dans le nouveau Tim Burton, Dark Shadows (sortie prévue le 9 mai 2012), au côté de Johnny Depp. Celle que Bernardo Bertolucci a lancée dans Innocents, en 2003, et a décrite “si belle que c’en est indécent”, se révèle une anxieuse, hypertimide, remettant sans cesse son image en question. Peur d’être trop lisse, marre d’être vue comme une femme fatale, elle rêve de montrer son côté abrupt. La comédienne, bien que française, est installée à Londres depuis six ans et n’a pratiquement tourné qu’en anglais. Il y a deux ans, elle déclarait au Times : “Si seulement Tim Burton m’appelait…” Aujourd’hui, elle avoue à L’Express Styles : “Si Jacques Audiard me faisait signe… de battre mon coeur s’arrêterait !”

Our dear friend Riikka had the amazing opportunity to attend the recent London premiere on behalf of Eva Green Web. Her review and a some of her lovely photos are below. Please do not post her review or photos elsewhere as they are an EGW exclusive. Thank you and enjoy.
I attended the London premiere of Perfect Sense on Tuesday, October 4, as a representative of Eva Green Web. I’ve been a big fan of Eva’s work since her performance in The Dreamers and I’m not only a long time friend of Mariana and Stef, your webmistresses, but a visitor of Eva Green Web since day one. Needless to say, I was thrilled to represent the site at the premiere of Eva’s newest film, let alone one directed by David Mackenzie and co-starring Ewan McGregor, bringing together some of my very favourite contemporary film talent. I brought along my friend Katie, who took on the task of snapping photos.
We took our spots to watch the red carpet arrivals prior to the premiere at the Curzon Mayfair cinema. Ewen Bremner was the first to arrive to pose for the photographers. He was followed by Ewan McGregor, who immediately headed out towards the fans to kindly sign autographs and pose for photos. He was snapped on the red carpet with his grandmother and uncle Denis Lawson, who also appears in Perfect Sense. Eva Green was next to arrive. She delivered the drama in a stunning Emilio Pucci burgundy tulle and velvet appliqué dress and towering Sergio Rossi booties. Eva looked drop-dead gorgeous in person and, boy, did she work it for the camera! She also took time to sign autographs and pose for photos with the fans. I introduced myself to her as a representative of the site and she seemed happy and surprised about it. I’m glad to report that Eva is not only insanely talented and absolutely stunning, as we all know, but also lovely and gracious a person. I was also thrilled to get to shake hands with David Mackenzie and tell him how much I appreciate his work. The whole cast and crew returned to the red carpet to pose for group shots.
Inside of the cinema David Mackenzie and producer Gillian Berrie introduced the film and welcomed the cast and crew on stage. Eva commented that she did not want to say anything about the film, except that she hoped that the audience would enjoy it. And enjoy it I, for one, certainly did. My expectations were high considering that I’m a fan of both the director as well as the cast and I’m happy to report that the film did not disappoint.

“It is a rare treat to play someone so ‘normal,’” says French actress Eva Green, referring to her latest role as a buttoned-down scientist in the drama “Perfect Sense.” “I have been playing quite extreme characters up until now, so portraying somebody so down-to-earth was very nice indeed.”
By extreme, she is referring to roles such as a flying witch in “The Golden Compass” (2007), a psychotic and murderous lesbian school teacher in “Cracks” (2009) and, of course, her portrayal of Vesper Lynd, the double agent who ruthlessly ensnares and breaks the heart of James Bond in the highly acclaimed “Casino Royale” (2006). Extreme seems to be part of the actress’s DNA.
However, when it came to her latest role—an epidemiologist trying to stop a world-wide epidemic—the 31-year-old actress embraced the challenge of playing someone who wasn’t, as she says, “cuckoo.”
Set in Glasgow, “Perfect Sense,” which is released in the U.K. on Oct. 7 and other European cities early next year, follows the fortunes of her character, Susan, as she attempts to solve the crisis and, in the best disaster-movie tradition, rediscovers love by falling for a local chef, played by Ewan McGregor. “She has had her heart broken, is a bit cynical and guarded, but starts opening up and allows herself to be vulnerable,” she says, speaking from her parents’ home in Paris.
