October 5th, 2011   M. Camelot, Dark Shadows, Interview, The Perfect Sense 2 Comments

By Oliver Franklin

“Do I have an interest in sex?” Eva Green smirks and for a brief moment GQ.com is entranced by the smoky-eyed glare that snared Bond himself. The austere atmosphere of our surroundings – a businesslike board room of London’s Mayfair hotel – doesn’t ease the tension. Then we politely correct her. “Oh… insects!” she says dissolving into a giggle, “I thought you asked that very seriously.” Despite her public image as a Gallic enchantress, earned through films like The Dreamers, Camelot and of course as Vesper in Casino Royale, Eva Green is in reality a well-read enthusiast with an amateur passion for entomology. Here to discuss her latest role is as a virus-fighting scientist in Perfect Sense, we sat down with Green to discuss restaurant advice, dating tips and buying beetles for Tim Burton.

What attracts you to a small independent film like this?
A film can be big, or small, I have to just fall in love with it. To connect with the character, the script, and the director. Sometimes they say to you “You should do that for your career, it’s a big thing, people will go and see it” but I wouldn’t be able to, because my heart wouldn’t be in it. I would drive people quite mad.

What do people get wrong about Ewan McGregor?
He is obsessed by his motorbikes, but he’s not very macho – he’s the opposite! That’s the great thing about him. He has a very strong feminine side. I don’t mean camp or anything like that, but he understands women very well. Sometimes with big movie stars they play a character and they’re very paranoid, but he’s not afraid to show his emotions. For me those are the real men.

What restaurant would you recommend?
St John Bread & Wine in Commercial Street, opposite Spitalfields Market. I go there every week. I love it, it’s very special. You can eat Ox heart, beautiful vegetables, great English desserts. It’s all about the ingredients. Not nouvelle cuisine, just very real, beautiful food.

How should a man dress to impress you?
The worst is when men try too hard, because it’s not very masculine. Your outfit has to look like “Oh, I just grabbed that.” Not too calculated. Jeans, a t-shirt: the simpler the better.

What scent should a man wear?
I’m not really keen on men wearing perfumes. It’s just a bit wrong! I don’t find it sexy. I prefer essential oils – patchouli is nice.

Your next film is Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows with Johnny Depp.
We’ve just finished filming it. Oh, it was wonderful. I mean not “blah blah blah bull****, but they were really the kindest group of people I’ve ever worked with.

What do you and Johnny have in common?
Johnny loves insects too. He also loves skulls – it’s a good luck thing. Sometimes people see that as something a bit morbid but I’ve always liked skulls and insects. When I go to New York I always go to this amazing shop called The Evolution Store in SoHo, where they have weird stuff and beautiful insects. For Tim Burton’s birthday I gave him a rainbow beetle. He loved it!

What was the last great book you read?
Johnny gave me the most amazing present: Les Fleurs Du Mal by Charles Baudelaire. It’s full of amazing sketches and such beautiful words. Baudelaire was a true artist, and very gifted.

You are friends with John Galliano. Is fashion duller without the likes of him and Alexander McQueen?
To me Jean Paul Gaultier is very brave and mad – but in a nice very theatrical way. People are ruthless in the crazy fashion world, but Galliano will come back, people make mistakes. He’s too talented and he’s a very kind person, so it will be forgotten.

Were you upset that Camelot wasn’t picked up for a second series?
I have to say TV is very hard. It was a very intense shoot and very quick. We had the scripts just a few days before and I like to practice, so it was hard for me. The good thing was I had a very close relationship with the writer, so we built the character together and I loved Morgan. She was very ballsy, very cool, but vulnerable, so not completely evil. You know it was quite successful in America, but it just didn’t happen.

Finally, what do people get wrong about you?
That I’m cold, distant, or that dark femme fatale. Magazines like to put me in that box, because I like doing photoshoots using a lot of a makeup or something. But in reality I’m a blonde!

October 5th, 2011   M. Article, Dark Shadows, Interview, The Perfect Sense Comments Off

Eva Green has said it was her dream to work with director Tim Burton on his new film Dark Shadows.

The former Bond girl appears with Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Michelle Pfeiffer and Chloe Moretz in the director’s film adaptation of the 60s supernatural series.

Eva revealed at the premiere of her new film Perfect Sense: “We finished shooting last Friday. It was like a dream – I always wanted to work with Tim Burton.”

She added: “The script is very funny and dark.”

In Perfect Sense Eva plays a scientist who begins a love affair with a chef, played by Ewan McGregor, at the same time as the world is swept by an epidemic of a terrible disease which causes the loss of the senses one at a time.

Eva said: “It could sound very depressing as a storyline but it’s actually very uplifting. It’s like a metaphor for falling love. When we fall in love we lose our senses. So I found it quite optimistic really.”

Bond Girl Eva Green has revealed that a sick bucket was on standby on the set of her new film Perfect Sense.

The French beauty wore a figure-hugging lace Pucci gown to the premiere of the film in London’s Curzon Mayfair, where she was joined by co-star Ewan McGregor and director David Mackenzie.

Green plays a scientist who begins a love affair with a chef (McGregor) at the same time as the world is swept by an epidemic of a terrible disease which causes the loss of the senses one at a time. Before losing taste they are struck by an uncontrollable hunger and devour anything they can.

Green revealed: “That was quite intense. I had to eat flowers, lipstick, and toothpaste. But we had a bucket next to us… It was bonkers. But I didn’t die.”

Meanwhile, McGregor trained with professional chefs in Glasgow for the role.

He said: “We had to look like we knew what we were doing. It was a top end kitchen so we had to look like we knew what were we doing technically. So that was important to look at what makes a chef look like he’s a good chef.”

McGregor admitted he hadn’t kept up his cooking skills since.

But the Moulin Rouge star did say he would be keen to play Sir Elton John in his new musical biopic Rocketman, after he was tipped for the part.

McGregor said: “I’d be delighted – send me the script Elton.”

Perfect Sense also stars McGregor’s uncle Denis Lawson, the director’s brother Alastair McKenzie and Trainspotting‘s Ewen Bremner, who all attended the screening.

    Bewitching and bewildering

    Eva Green is French, but an Anglophile who lives in London. She plays wild women, but says she hates shedding her clothes. She’s been the face of Dior, but spurns Hollywood.

    Perfect Sense is in cinemas nationwide in the UK from October 7th.

    Thanks to George, edenLiao and Antigonus for the links. There is no official confirmation yet on whether or not Eva will be a part of the film, but we will post more information as it becomes available.

    The project is based on the book “Too Proud, Too Fragile” by Italian author Alfonso Signorini.

    Niki Caro is writing and directing Callas, a new film about the legendary opera star Maria Callas, based on the book Too Proud, Too Fragile by Alfonso Signorini, who will also take a writing credit on the film.

    The Rome-based De Angelis Group is producing.

    The New Zealand-born Caro, director of such films as Whale Rider, North Country and The Vintner’s Luck, is repped by ICM, which brokered the deal on her behalf and also is representing North American rights on the project.

    Callas’ dramatic life and career has been the subject of a number of documentaries and narrative features. Franco Zeffirelli focused on her later years in 2002’s Callas Forever. Actresses playing Callas also appeared in the TV movies Jackie Bouvier Kennedy Onassis and Onassis: The Richest Man in the World.

    “We fully expect Callas to become one of the most important films in the De Angelis dossier as the source material provided by Mr. Signorini’s book is the most in-depth to date about the life of the controversial opera star. We’ve put together a very strong production team from Niki Caro on to bring this story to screen,” said the De Angelis Group’s Andrea Zoso.

    Thanks to Isabell for the link. Eva looks stunning as Angelique. Can’t wait for more photos to surface.

    Behold the real visage of Johnny Depp’s vampire from Dark Shadows!

    Last week, long-range paparazzi shots of the actor wearing ghostly white makeup, large sunglasses and a pulled down fedora made fans of the original 1966-71 supernatural soap opera bristle nervously, with complaints he looked simply too strange.

    Nevermind that he’s playing a 200-year-old vampire, which is strange enough.

    As you can see from this cast shot, Depp’s bloodsucking pater familias Barnabas Collins actually borrows heavily from the aged-little boy look of original Dark Shadows star Jonathan Frid — not that anyone would be happy to see this guy show up as your prom date either.
