Eva Green felt like an “old maid” during her childhood.
The French actress buckled down and studied hard when she was growing up. She admits she was wise beyond her years as she understood the importance of education.
“I went to a prestigious school. I was always studying, you know, I was an old maid!” Eva told the latest issue of UK magazine InStyle. “I didn’t feel like I was blooming, though. I was very shy.”
At 17, Eva enrolled at The American School in Paris where she felt “less judgment” before going on to drama school.
The 31-year-old star’s hard work has paid off as she has played a Bond girl in Casino Royale and also appeared in Kingdom of Heaven.
As she continues to see her star rise in Hollywood, she refuses to promote her status on social networking sites such as Twitter.
“Why would I do that? It’s masochistic. It’s not healthy if you become very self-conscious as an actor,” she said, shaking her head.
Eva can next be seen in Dark Shadows alongside Johnny Depp and Michelle Pfeiffer. She plays the role of powerful witch Angelique Bouchard who imprisons a vampire when he refuses to give in to her advances.
Eva Green counts herself “very lucky” to have her mother supporting her movie career.
Eva has followed in the footsteps of her mom Marlène Jobert by becoming an actress. The pair are very close and Eva wouldn’t have it any other way.
“Oh I’m married to my mother!” Eva told the latest issue of UK magazine InStyle.
“She’s a great support. I still need my mom – I should grow up! She doesn’t come on sets, but she’s there when I go home, so I can cry, I can complain and we’ll talk about the role. I’m very lucky.”
However, Eva says her mother’s career did not influence her decision to enter the entertainment industry.
Marlène was reluctant to take Eva and her twin sister Joy to watch her perform when they were growing up.
“No, not at all, she stopped acting when she was in her early forties to raise me and my sister. I never went on any movie sets,” she explained. “She was never like, ‘Oh go and be an actor’ – never.”
Eva can next be seen playing a witch in Dark Shadows and admits most of her roles have an “intense” side. She has joked that people now believe she’s like her movie characters.
“People think I’m evil, a witch,” she laughed.
“It’s so boring to play the girlfriend. Most of the women in film are there to be beautiful for the man. It’s quite hard to find a ballsy or complex character. So the roles I’ve taken are those. Lots of people put me in the daaaaarrrrk category.”
I was delighted to find Eva in the cover of Corriere Della Sera’s weekly magazine Io Donna which comes out this Saturday, April 14th. Ms Green talks about The Dreamers, Casino Royale, Dark Shadows, her family, Isabelle Adjani and love.
Johnny Depp and Tim Burton are currently being featured in several magazines around the world. Not only don’t we have access to all of them, nor can we afford to buy all of them off Ebay, but we’re doing our very best. We’re trying to focus on magazines that include new photos & stills, interviews, articles, interesting tidbits about Eva Green and her character Angelique Bouchard. If you can help us with scans, please contact us.
Her real enthusiasm is for French actress Eva Green, who played Serafina Pekkala, the flying witch queen, in the film. “She’s someone I look up to. I think she’s one of the most beautiful women in the world, but she’s just so calm and collected and kind. And yet humble, and I think those are such endearing qualities, and yet at the same time she’s so talented.
“At the red carpet events, she’d pose for pictures and look such a movie star and then she’d turn round and … [Richards mimes sticking out her tongue]. I just loved it. It was like: completely be in that moment and be that person they want from you, and yet know at the same time that it’s all just silly.”
There’s a night and day difference between the soundstages of Tim Burton’s “Dark Shadows” and his previous movie, “Alice in Wonderland,” and, no surprise, this is a filmmaker far more comfortable in the darkness.
The digital ambitions of “Alice” required numbing weeks of work in a green-screen chamber, and by the end of it Burton was desperate to get back to his roots — building a cinematic house and then haunting it with his unique brand of cemetery cabaret.
For “Dark Shadows,” an eccentric vampire romance starring Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer and Eva Green, he’s staged a minor one-man rebellion against CG imagery; the story has some digital effects, but where the script called for a Maine fishing town’s waterfront, circa 1972, Burton persuaded Warner Bros. and the film’s producers to build it on the back lot of England’s storied Pinewood Studios instead of on a computer screen.
“It’s so nice to come to work here — not everything is green,” Burton said last summer as he roamed the gothic, crushed-velvet trappings of the mansion that is home to Depp’s aristocratic bloodsucker, Barnabas Collins. “It’s a soap opera — or started as one — and that really means working with the actors. And the sets help everyone. And it’s just more fun.”
“Dark Shadows,” which arrives May 11, is a curious creature and an ongoing mystery. A trailer recently premiered to mixed reactions; its winking tone possibly suggested that the film is an elaborate goof on the overwrought “Twilight” movies, but actually, like so many Burton projects, this one is a fractured valentine to the pop-culture obsessions of his youth.
