Comments Off on Eva Green’s Craig questions
‘Casino Royale’ actress Eva Green says fans are constantly asking her questions about Daniel Craig, who played iconic British spy James Bond in the movie.
Eva Green is always being asked questions about Daniel Craig.
The stunning actress starred alongside the British hunk in the James Bond film ‘Casino Royale’ and says women now can’t stop asking her questions to find out what he’s really like.
Eva – whose character Vesper Lynd had a romance with the suave spy – said: ‘They ask me about Daniel Craig, Daniel Craig, blah, blah, blah. When people come up to me in the street all they want to know about is Daniel Craig. Was he good looking, was he great to work with? He was, of course. As much as I joke about it, I do love my association with James Bond. It was a brilliant movie.’
The French beauty also admitted she was worried about taking the role because she didn’t fit the usual stereotype for female characters in the movie franchise and had to be forced into auditioning.
She added: ‘I am not a Bond girl. But the role was not your typical James Bond female role. It wasn’t just sexy, I got lucky. My agent was very good in forcing me to do it. I wasn’t interested, but she forced me to read the script, and the character was a real character.’

Bond girl Eva Green insists she’s ‘not confident’ about her body – but you might beg to differ, given her latest sultry photoshoot.
The 29-year-old seemed to show no inhibitions when she posed naked for the latest edition of style bible Tatler, recreating a classic Seventies portrait of British actress Charlotte Rampling.
Sitting on a polished antique table in front of an ornately gilded mirror, the Casino Royale star has only a glass of wine for company as she mimics erotic photographer Helmut Newton’s 1973 memorable image.
One thing has changed through the decades, though – the pack of cigarettes behind Ms Rampling’s derriere has vanished, a nod to the fact smoking is no longer promoted as sexy.
Despite her protestations, this is not the first time Paris-born Ms Green has been naked in the line of duty.
Before starring as Vesper Lynd opposite Daniel Craig’s 007, she took a lead role in The Dreamers, a film by Last Tango In Paris director Bernardo Bertolucci that featured several explicit bedroom scenes.
Even though the role was her big-screen debut, Ms Green’s father and twin sister Joy refused to watch it.
The actress said: ‘They’re not in the business. They get confused.’
And she admitted: ‘I felt a bit ill when I saw it. I’m not confident with my body.’
But she seems to have conquered her coyness for Tatler. Another image shows her wearing only a mink coat – again echoing a familiar theme from the work of German-born Newton, who died in 2004.
His 1973 photograph of Ms Rampling for Vogue magazine – taken at the Hotel Nord Pinus II in Arles, near Marseilles, and titled The Sexiest Woman In The World – firmly sealed her reputation as a sex symbol.
Ms Green thinks she is unlikely to earn the same plaudits.
‘I opened a magazine the other day and they called me the worst-dressed person in the world,’ she said.
‘And I was like, “I like that dress.”’
Well, at least no one can criticise what she’s wearing in this latest picture …
* The full interview is in December’s issue of Tatler, out on Thursday.

Eva Green being interviewed by Empire.com
French actress Eva Green has said that her role in the James Bond franchise has helped make her more “bankable”.
“It was a blessing definitely,” Green told the BBC after the screening of her latest film Cracks at the London Film Festival.
“It brought me luck and it was commercial, but people liked it and now I’m a bit more bankable – which is good.”
Green starred as Vesper Lynd alongside Daniel Craig in 2006’s Casino Royale.
She said that even three years on she was asked about her Bond role all the time.
In Cracks, she plays a charismatic teacher at a girls’ boarding school in 1930s England.
The big screen drama is directed by Jordan Scott – the daughter of director Sir Ridley Scott, who directed Alien, Bladerunner and Gladiator.
Based on Sheila Kohler’s novel set in South Africa, Cracks is due on general release in the UK in December.
Jordan Scott, daughter of Ridley (Blade runner, Thelma & Louise, Gladiator), has presented her confident debut movie Cracks during the course of the 53rd London Film Festival, accompanied by her father and her cast, including the stunning Eva Green. The story is set in 1930s England in an isolated all-girls boarding school. In the austere institution (the church hymns, the dark uniforms, the severe bare landscape) an unconventional teacher, Miss G (a superb Eva Green), brings a touch of glamour and emancipation. Her team of girls is faithful and adoring, until the arrival on a new student, the aristocratic Spaniard Fiamma (Maria Valverde), and the balance is irremediably flawed.
Watch it here now!!!
