Franziska was lovely enough to send us a link to a Swiss article in which Eva says that she loves Switzerland and wants to buy a farm there after she retires from acting. Unfortunately Franziska is too busy to provide a full translation. But Maria from Magnifique Marion Cotillard was a sweetheart and translated it for us!!! Thank you Maria!!
PS: If anyone has the Reporters Sans Frontières book please send in a scan to share with other fans!
In Casino Royale she was still in love with James Bond. Now however actress Eva Green has fallen hard for Switzerland.
Elegant wardrobe, carefully (elaboratively?) coiffed hair, deep black mascara: the woman who is sinking into a dark leather sofa of a Genevian jeweller establishment comes across as mysterious and very very sensual.
Eva was present at the official opening of the Montblanc store in Geneva.
She’s also preparing for an important audition next Monday in London!
Exclusive interview and new photo here.
Mina sent an email to let us know that there’s a pic of Eva in the Reporters Sans Frontières Book.
Eva was featured in the supplement La Tribune & Moi of the French newspaper La Tribune from last November 28th.
Here’s the interview in French:
– Eva Green une perfectionniste au parfum –
James Bond Girl dans Casino Royale, Cendrillon gothique sous la houlette de Wong Kar Wai pour Dior, Eva Green ne fantasme pas sur Hollywood. Du haut de ses 28 printemps et de ses huit films, installée à Londres, Paris lui manque. Et Despleschin la fait rêver.
Pour beaucoup de Français vous incarnez la réussite.
J’ai eu beaucoup de chance. Ce métier est assez instable. On dépend tellement du regard et du désir de l’autre, que je m’attends toujours à ce que cela s’arrête. C’est un peu les montagnes russes. Je suis d’une nature perfectionniste, insatisfaite, je me dis que je peux toujours faire mieux.
Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire was the big winner at this year’s British Independent Film Awards.
The film won both best film and best director at the BIFAs, hosted by James Nesbitt at London’s Old Billingsgate Market. Slumdog Millionaire actor Dev Patel was also named newcomer of the year.
Boyle were presented with the awards by Joe Wright and Eva Green. He dedicated the awards to the people of Mumbai, where the film was made.
Another big winner on the night was Steve McQueen, whose feature debut Hunger won the Douglas Hickox award, best actor for Michael Fassbender and best technical achievement for cinematographer Sean Bobbit.
Best actress was Vera Farmiga for The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas. Both best supporting actor and actress awards went to stars of Mike Leigh’s Happy-Go-Lucky, Alexis Zegerman and Eddie Marsan.
Martin McDonagh won best screenplay honours for In Bruges. “Apologies to the people of Bruges. It isn’t really that shitty,” he joked.
Awards in full.
Eva is on the cover of the December issue of Tatler Russia (thanks to spot for the heads-up)!!! Russian friends, we need your help to get scans from it!!! Here’s what the cover looks like (thanks to Lola):
Apparently it’s a brand new photoshoot!!!
Self confessed “eccentric dresser” Eva Green has earned something of a reputation for her unusual red carpet choices. And in Beijing for the opening of a new exhibition the 28-year-old Casino Royale star didn’t disappoint, turning up in a show-stopping lime-green affair.
The French actress’ vibrant organza, which featured blue bead appliqué at the neckline and sheer sleeves falling loosely around her slender arms, was a bold choice. And one the beautiful brunette pulled off with considerable aplomb as she attended the Christian Dior And Chinese Artists exhibition.
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!

* Trouble at young girls’ boarding school
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.”
