March 10th, 2015   G Article, General, Review Comments Off on Michael Pitt’s Response To People Who Ask Him About Eva Green

On the penultimate day of the rewrite, I finally brought up Eva Green. Pitt was sitting on the chair, the sun was setting in one of the windows, and Madison Street, which was three stories below us, was clogged with cars. The Dreamers was Green’s first movie, and the first of the many sex scenes in her career—the most outrageous of which is in 300: Rise of an Empire. In a sense—at least a cinematic sense—Pitt deflowered her. (“You are my first love, my first great love,” Green says to Pitt in The Dreamers, after fucking him on a couch.) “What is she like in person?” I asked him with a tone that I thought perfectly concealed my fascination with the actress. Pitt, who had heard me sing nonstop praises for his performance of the Kurt Cobain–like character in Gus Van Sant’s Last Days, looked at me for a moment and, as if finally realizing that my devotion to him was lower than the one I had for his costar in The Dreamers, said with almost cool cruelty: “You and every other man wants to know that.” I never brought the matter up again.

My fascination with Green is not, however, as sordid as Pitt’s response implied. I admire her mostly on a cinematic plane. She has a face, and particularly eyes—big green eyes—that can communicate all the needed information about her character’s soul or emotional state. One fact that separates film from theater: Acting is less important than visage. On a stage, which is always distant, a face means comparatively little; on a movie screen, a face is almost everything. Indeed, it is precisely this fact that enabled Green to deliver such a great performance in the new and excellent Danish western The Salvation without saying a single word through the entire film.

The Salvation is director Kristian Levring’s epic Western tale of revenge and justice. It tells the story of Jon (played by Mads Mikkelsen), a peaceful American settler of Danish decent who kills his family’s murderers which unleashes the fury of a notorious gang leader (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) whose plans of revenge and mayhem is almost foiled by his mute sister-in-law Madeleine (Eva Green). Jon’s cowardly fellow townspeople then betray him, forcing him to hunt down the outlaws alone. Here we talk to veteran South African actor Sean Cameron Michael on his thoughts on his career, filming in South Africa, The Salvation, his current hit tv show Black Sails and his favorite Eva Green project.

You’ve played a variety of characters on various mediums (theatre, film, television, shorts and commercials) and genres. Do you have a preferred medium or genre to work on? Do you have a particular favorite project or character of yours?

Yes, I’ve been very fortunate to work on many interesting and exciting projects over the past 30 years or so.  Each medium, whether it be theatre (and the instantaneous energy of a live audience) or on-camera work (TV series, films, docudramas, music videos, etc), they all have their own unique requirement, challenges and style.  I’ve been acting and performing all my life.  It’s what I love and I’m truly grateful for every opportunity that I am given.  It inspires and fulfills me immensely to work with new and aspiring directors and writers, to help bring their creations to life.  At the same time, I’m continually learning and experiencing, working with highly regarded filmmakers and artistes who have reached the pinnacle of success. It’s hard to choose a favorite.  Each experience is special and exhilarating actually.

An encounter that changed everything….

MI-TO

Italy, around 1870. Campari bitter (made in Milan) came together with red vermouth (produced in Turin). It is hardly surprising that the name MI-TO sounds exactly like the Italian word for “myth’.

February 26th, 2015   G Article, Interview Comments Off on Eva Green: I’m a Juice Machine

Eva Green isn’t sure she can keep juicing up in the long run.

The French actress always looks incredible and even won the role of Bond girl Vesper Lynd in Quantum of Solace. To keep her body in check, she has a routine of exercising and cleansing with liquid meals.

“I run for half an hour a day and do stretches,” she revealed to German magazine Jolie.

“I’ve also discovered fresh vegetable juices. I know this sounds very LA, but I’m totally on the juicing bandwagon. Not sure if this will last. We’ll see!”

But Eva isn’t too tough on herself. Just like most other people, the gorgeous brunette has a few diet weaknesses.

“I don’t want to seem like a total alcoholic, but I do love a glass of something in the evenings,” she smiled. “It really relaxes me. And I can’t resist when it comes to cheese and foie gras. And I love to travel. But that’s a nice weakness.”

The 34-year-old star also let fans in on her beauty tips. Her mother always says not to worry about things, because it causes wrinkles.

Her go-to scent is Melograno from Santa Maria Novella and the little luxury she can’t live without are contact lenses.

“I do wear glasses when I’m home alone in the evenings – I turn into four-eyes. But nobody knows about that…” she giggled.

February 22nd, 2015   M. Article Comments Off on Eva Green is Léa Seydoux’s favorite Bond Girl

Seydoux has vague memories of watching Pierce Brosnan as Bond when growing up, but her strongest identification is with the Daniel Craig stretch of the franchise.

‘With the arrival of Daniel, a new chapter seemed to open up for the Bond movies,’ she says.

‘The movies are better and much more exciting than they used to be.

‘As for the Bond girls, I especially identified with Eva Green as Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale.

‘It impressed me that a French actress was playing a Bond girl. I was taken with the way she could be intense and mysterious, strong and vulnerable, girlish and womanly. I love it when an actress can play with contradictions.

‘But there’s no way I could have imagined myself playing a Bond girl nearly ten years later. For me, that dream was too big.’

February 12th, 2015   G Article, Penny Dreadful, Television Comments Off on Everything to Know About Penny Dreadful Season 2

By David Crow

 

With a new trailer, we have all the news and updates about Eva Green’s bewitching Vanessa Ives and the rest of Penny Dreadful Season 2.

A familiar door been reopened. Indeed, if you listen closely, already can be heard the cries of restless spirits (or at least Showtime fans) yearning to embrace the other side of the Deminonde once more; Showtime’s Penny Dreadful is returning for season two. And that first sensation is already apparent in the new trailer for the second year.

As one of the best shows on television, and definitely one of the most underrated, Penny Dreadful had initially introduced itself as a Victorian curiosity from creator and executive producer John Logan (Gladiator, Skyfall); a decadently dressed pastiche of many of the 19th century’s best British horror novels, including the works of Mary Shelley, Bram Stoker, and Oscar Wilde, quickened back to life as a monster mash for the premium cable generation.

But with its startling fidelity to the works of the aforementioned authors—such as the most faithful rendering of the Frankenstein monster to date—as well as its belabored intensity for capturing the gilded hypocrisy of an age, Penny Dreadful rapidly matured into something more than worth your time: it became a layered drama about repression of one’s true self. You may have predicted that season one would reveal Josh Hartnett’s Ethan Chandler had a wolfish secret, or that the bedeviled Vanessa Ives would find Yuletide love from Sir Malcolm Murray, but the execution was seductively ingratiating.

Now Showtime is gearing up the hype for Penny Dreadful season two. Last month, we received our first real trailer for the upcoming second season, and just last week Showtime rolled out its New Year’s Day celebrations by airing all eight hours of the first season back-to-back. With anticipation growing, there is hardly a better time to organize all in one place everything that you need to know and expect from the second season of Penny Dreadful.

February 9th, 2015   G Article, Campari, Interview 2 Comments

By Julie Rebeyrol

Explosive cocktail

Surprisingly, pungent, breathtaking. The lens of Julia Fullerton-Batten for the Campari Calendar 2015, Eva Green plays with imagination and malice, the femme fatale image that fits her too often to the skin. Meeting in London around a Campari Orange. Cheers!

IR: You are often a muse, but this is the first time that you are asked for a calendar. How did you feel?
Eva Green: I loved posing for Campari calendar, it was fun. I was in good hands, pampered by the best makeup artists, stylists and hairdressers. The positive energy that is absorbed around you is very important to feel confident and fulfilled before the lens.There were so many shootings where I did not feel  “connected” with the photographer. Julia Fullerton-Batten, it was different.

What has she done more than others?
She made ​​me very serene. She is a talented artist with an incredible imagination and a real sense of almost theatrical staging. She is passionate about what she does and takes great pride in her work. She prepared the set for hours before the shooting, she has carefully placed each glass and each bottle. It was so well done twenty minutes were enough to take a picture.

What surprised you most about this shooting?
The shooting in the ballroom of a castle in Budapest was very surprising and even fun, even. We were able to dance with gorgeous men, which is always nice, and the boys around me were pulling the strings of my dress so it moves! It’s unusual.

Among all these beautiful pictures, which one in the calendar that you prefer?
Sputnik! I like its mystery, magic and especially cosmonaut helmet. I recognize myself also naturally in this picture. Far, far away from the image of “femme fatale” that sticks to my skin. I also like the photo of the Negroni where I had to wear a beautiful Vivienne Westwood dress. The dress has helped me to get into the character I interpreted, a courtesan of the 19th century looking in the mirror. It was beautiful and sensual.

The 2015 calendar revisits and interprets the amazing stories behind iconic Campari cocktails. What is your favorite story about cocktails?
That of Negroni sbagliato ! I loved knowing how this cocktail was invented. It was created by accident and, like many other errors, eventually became an exceptional discovery. Such accidents can give birth to the most beautiful things in the world.

You will soon be back on movie sets, what movie in which you’ve not been seen yet but would like to play?
Maybe a comedy. Yes, a black comedy …! I love black humor. I am completely obsessed with Catherine Tate. This woman fascinates me.

Exactly, which actress has always inspired you?
Isabelle Adjani, forever. And Cate Blanchett, which for me is a true goddess! But I was perhaps the most inspired with is the poster of the film Last Tango in Paris by Bernardo Bertolucci, which remained plastered to my room very long.

You are often seen in Anglo-Saxon distributions, what kind of French film could seduce you?
Films of Jacques Audiard. Without hesitation!

At what time of the day are you going to the movies?
When I’m on a plane. I must admit that I unfortunately go infrequently to the cinema.

Finally, 2015 will be the year of “Eva Green” for Campari and for you? What’s your wish?
… (long pause) … To be happy! Yes, to be happy. Simply.
