Eva Green is intense in her feature for the Denim issue of Flaunt magazine, on stands now.
Here’s what the 31-year-old Dark Shadows actress had to share:
On 300: Battle of Artemisia: “Soon I’m training to become G.I. Jane or Xena or something like that…I’m a warrior—she’s like a man, ruthless and driven by revenge—which I’ve actually done a lot of. But this will be a challenge…Four people, just for me, are coming to Paris to train me. It will be very fancy—hand-to-hand fighting and double swords.”
On image and self-perception: Many actors are not confident, or they hide it. My acting coach actually was saying, ‘People think you’re so cool, so strong,’ and I was like, ‘Oh my god, do they?’ It’s funny the image that we give.”

I received an email from Ms. Elisa Favreau from StudioCanal on March 20th and this might be really interesting to many of you.
Are you an aspiring writer? This might be your chance! StudioCanal is looking for a brand new novel written by an unknown, unpublished writer. If you wrote an original, unique, interesting, captivating, well-written novel that’s not available on the interwebs or in print, keep reading. Plagiarism won’t be accepted! The novel must be original and you musn’t be a published writer. StudioCanal wants to encourage new writers. They want to adapt and eventually co-produce the best novel in partnerships with small independent production companies from the UK and Italy. Nobody is looking for the new Twilight!
If you think you have a chance, please submit your full name, place of birth, city of residence, resume, synopsis of your novel (they’ll probably receive many submissions that they’ll need to read a synopsis before reading the entire novel), your major inspirations behind the novel, favourite books and authors, what made you want to be a writer, and, finally, a pdf file containing your novel. By submitting your novel, you give you on rights to it, meaning that they’ll belong to the database of StudioCanal now. You may be asked to sign a confidentiality agreement. Languages accepted are English, French and Italian.
You must be older than 18.
Your deadline is up until June 1st, but, in case this is a success, the deadline can be extended.
The email you have to use is Elisa Favreau favreau.elisa [REMOVETHIS] @ [REMOVETHIS] gmail.com
All legal stuff, payment and detailed info will be then discussed via them. I’m just passing the news forward.

Stella (UK) – May 6, 2012
She was the most memorable Bond girl in an age and now relucant star Eva Green is having her wicked way with Johnny Depp in Dark Shadows. She talks to Michele Manelis.
If Eva Green has become Hollywood’s femme fatale du jour, at least she won’t need help with a translation of the job description. She was born and raised in France, but had a bilingual education in England and the American University of Paris. Her clipped British tones came in handy as Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale.
But largely her screen roles since, having made her acting debut in Bernardo Bertolucci’s controversial The Dreamers in 2003, have consisted of queens and witches and a recurring theme: “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.”
In Tim Burton’s gothic farce Dark Shadows Green certainly has fun playing kooky angry witch, Angelique.
The lusty sorceress has cursed Johnny Depp’s Barnabas Collins into vampiredom and left him entombed for 200 years. The film, which shows what happens when Barnabas is exhumed in 1971 and reunites with the immortal Angelique, is a remake of a 60s television series of the same name, a horror soap which had a cult following which included Burton and Depp.
“This role was a gift from heaven,” says Green. “Angelique is absolutely bonkers, and is undoubtedly one of the best roles I’ve ever played. I got really lucky with this film, and to work with Tim Burton was the ultimate fantasy of mine. He’s a genius.”

Don’t be fooled by her habit of baring all – the former Bond girl Eva Green is an unexpectedly self-conscious siren. Nisha Lilia Diu meets the star of Tim Burton’s new vampire comedy, Dark Shadows.
By Nisha Lilia Diu
What would you buy Tim Burton for his birthday?
He clearly has all the dark garments and violet-tinted specs a man could need, and the director of Corpse Bride and Edward Scissorhands doesn’t seem the type to make use of a tie.
‘I got him a rainbow beetle,’ says Eva Green, Burton’s leading lady in his new vampire comedy, Dark Shadows. A beetle. Of course.
‘There’s this shop in New York I go to, it has bones and fossils and insects that are like works of art. I have a few on my wall. Some people collect butterflies – I love beetles.’ Did Burton like his beetle? ‘He loved it.’
Eva Green, 31, is a woman of possibly more gothic tastes than her director. It’s as apparent in her acting roles – she’s played several witches, power-hungry princesses and killers of various descriptions – as her dress.
