Beijing may have drawn sports fans for the Olympics this past summer, but this weekend, an altogether different crowd is flying in. On Saturday, Charlize Theron, Eva Green, Marion Cotillard, Michelle Yeoh and Maggie Chung attended an opening reception and gala dinner to celebrate the exhibit “Christian Dior & Chinese Artists” at the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art.
EDIT: I’ve added 4 new MQs thanks to shadowyxu.
Last but not least, as you’ve probably noticed, we have a brand new gorgeous layout! Many thanks to Frederik for his amazing design skills and Annie for the coding!
Get to know Miss G’s bedroom, her swimming class, her students Di Radfield, Poppy and Fiamma (played by María Valverde), the one she’ll fall for.
Thanks to Sandrine for the heads-up and Tango_down for the scans!

Visit on the set, in Dublin, of Jordan Scott’s first movie, Ridley’s daughter. She directs Eva Green in Cracks, the feverish and sensual story of an English teacher in the 40’s who’s going to live a love passion for one of her students.
“We started off something in Casino Royale. We had a great storyline, we had a great book, we had a novel by Ian Fleming that was solid and had a love story in it — a really strong love story. And Eva Green played this great part, a wonderful performance, and when it came around to shooting this movie it was like, we can’t just push that aside. We have to develop that; we have to tie up the loose ends here. And that’s what Quantum of Solace is about — it’s him finding his quantum of solace. He’s not on a vendetta. He’s not after revenge. He’s after finding his place.”

Inside the brand new issue of the Italian VANITY FAIR #45 12-11-08 there is a full page size photo of Eva Green (see the preview). If anyone can donate a scan, please email me! Francesca kindly sent me a scan! Thank you!
Starting next week I’ll be taking a break for two weeks. So, during this time, there’ll be most likely no updates. I will however ask a dear friend of mine to moderate the comments, and, maybe, upload new pictures of Eva attends a new super important event. If she takes a little longer to moderate the comments than I usually do, please be patient. By the way, sometimes links go into the spam folder. So if you’re a legit member with a legit link and your link wasn’t added to the comments page, leava a friendly comment without links saying that you’ve sent another one with links. This way we’ll look into the spam folder. I may still pop up to say hello during my absence, but it’s not sure yet. Anyway, keep visiting, chatting here in the comments section, browsing the site, etc.
But I’ll still be around until next week.
Please welcome our newest affiliates: Summer-Glau.net and Twilight-Media.net!
I know that not everyone likes “Twilight” here but some do. A good friend of mine’s just opened this fansite today, so I’m posting her link here to support her and let the world know about her brand new site.
The actress, who is Montblanc’s Ambassador since 2007, has accepted to pose once again for the famous brand.
The new campaign, that aims to promote the jewelry and watches collection, was shot by photographer Ellen von Unwerth, who succeeds Paolo Roversi.
The photos were shot in Milan and each photo of this series is followed by the slogan: “Montblanc. A Story to Tell.”
The campaign will be launched on November 3rd.
It seems like Vanity Fair and the German mag Gala launched it before everybody else… Click here and here.
And a brand new tiny preview thanks to Olga Iv:
Thanks to our lovely and talented mata!
Lola informs us that there’s a new Vesper related clip of “Quantum of Solace” available for viewing online. Just forward to 1:00, it’s about 50 seconds long, and even in a tiny photo, Eva looks divine!
“Interview” Scans thanks to Mycah and Clippings from 2008 thanks to Lorna and Lola!
“A lot of the films now are more focused on the visuals than on the actors. I think all directors should go to drama school.”
