IT’S bonjour Sydney for Bond girl Eva Green, who has jetted into the Harbour city to add some potential big-screen sparkle to Australian director George Miller’s Christmas.
According to film industry insiders, the French femme fatale is in town to audition for Miller’s upcoming blockbuster Justice League of America, to be shot at Fox Studios next year.
Strangely, Green opted to miss Sunday night’s premiere of The Golden Compass, in which she stars opposite Nicole Kidman.
However, diners at Bronte restaurant Bonsai were stirred, not shaken, to sit alongside a Bond girl when Green popped in for dinner with her boyfriend, actor Marton Csokas, on Tuesday night.
“She looked like she’d just stepped off the plane but she was absolutely stunning,” one observer said.

Actor, fashionista and down-to-earth girl, The Golden Compass’s Eva Green is a force to be reckoned with in any incarnation, writes Helen Barlow.
Ever since her debut as a femme fatale in Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Dreamers, a film that had red-blooded men watching an art movie for the first time in their lives, Eva Green has been immortalised on the internet as one of the sexiest, shapeliest screen stars since Greta Garbo.
Yet for the 27-year-old French actor, whose actor mother was part of the French New Wave, the idea of being known for her hourglass figure was far from desirable.
“I’m not going on the internet any more,” she protests in her posh-sounding British accent, a hangover of perfecting her English to appear in Casino Royale. “I went on the net two years ago, and I saw some very nasty things and it’s scary. People warned me that this was going to happen, but even then seeing shots of me being completely naked or just parts of me was just horrible. So much of it’s taken out of context.”

IF French femme fatale Eva Green had her way, her “daemon” would be a frog.
So claims the 27-year-old Bond girl who plays “good witch” Serafina Pekkala in the film adaptation of Philip Pullman’s cult novel, The Golden Compass (the movie opened in Malaysia on Dec 6).
Tucking a swan-like neck into slender shoulders in an oh-so-French expression of deep, mock-thought (you can almost hear her thinking “pfff…!” aloud), she reveals this crucial fact at a recent press interview in London after contorting her face with ungainly pursings of her mouth and a roll of those signature kohl-rimmed eyes.
According to Eva’s management: “This isn’t something that Eva is looking at.”
Better late than never…

Many thanks to Kazou for emailing me a bunch of Midnight Poison / Dior related photos. EDIT: And, also, Anouk for two more.
PS: As usual, please email me any new scans you might have. All contributions are very much appreciated. But, please, also be patient, because I’m currently very busy with offline life.
(…) La veille de cette rencontre, Marlène Jobert avait assisté à une projection de «La boussole d’or», dans lequel joue sa fille Eva Green. Nous avons donc tout naturellement commencé par là.
Qu’avez-vous ressenti quand votre fille a décidé de devenir actrice?
J’étais anxieuse, je l’ai un peu découragée au début parce que c’est un métier très, très difficile et qu’elle est émotive. Aujourd’hui elle m’épate: elle a une présence, quelque chose de mystérieux et de classieux, un très beau timbre de voix aussi, et puis cette opiniâtreté à obtenir la perfection. Je serais incapable d’aller jusqu’où elle va. Je suis très fière d’elle, même si tout n’est pas joué encore. Avec le James Bond («Casino Royale», ndlr), elle a prouvé qu’elle était une bonne actrice. Malheureusement, les réalisateurs qui l’intéressent ne vont pas voir ce genre de film.
Et sa soeur Joy?
Elle est dans l’ombre. Elle est passionnée par la nature, elle élève des chevaux. Elle me paraît très heureuse de ne pas être obligée de faire ce métier (rires), donc tout va bien!

‘Do you mind if I smoke?”
Not your typical opening line, but then again, Eva Green is not your typical young actress. Sure she’s gorgeous and her star is rapidly ascending. But Green’s Gallic air – she was born and raised in Paris, France – comes across not as being arrogant, but as self-assured and confident.
9 December 2007
From Bond girl to witch queen, in the upcoming $180m Golden Compass, Eva Green certainly knows how to cast a spell. In a candid interview she talks about fame, frocks and four-letter words
GASPING FOR a fag and with a little dog nibbling at her ankles, Eva Green is doing a rubbish job of promoting her new film.
‘My part is not really big, big in this one,’ the French actress says in her mellifluous but clipped English. She’s talking, distractedly, about The Golden Compass, the Hollywood blockbuster adaptation of Northern Lights, the first book in Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy. Green plays Serafina Pekkala, the flying witch queen who comes to the rescue of adolescent heroine Lyra Belacqua. But as Green is yet to see the film, she’s unable, or unwilling, to talk at length about it.
Lyra first encounters Serafina on page 302 of the prize-winning, 399-page book. Pullman describes her as having ‘a voice so like the high wild singing of the aurora itself that Lyra could hardly hear the sense for the sweet sound of it.’
‘Eva,’ I ask, ‘how do you “act” that?’
Green laughs and lets out a wineglass-shattering squeal. She sounds less like an aurora-aping witch-diva than that bloke out of the Darkness. ‘Of course I can’t do that,’ Green says of Serafina’s voice. ‘How can you do that? It’s all my presence and my acting,’ she purrs, sarkily, before acknowledging that, yes, however, in the film she does do a lot of flying – even though she’s no fan of heights – and can now use a bow and arrow with some aplomb. ‘I talk in like a Norwegian/Rrrrrussian accent,’ she adds, rolling her Rs Slavonically, ‘something like that.’
Is she in the film more than her character is in the book?
Many thanks to Jess for sending in an exclusive video from Film 2007′s Making Of “Franklyn”!!! It’s mainly Ryan Phillipe being interviewed, but it’s definitely viewing to get to know more about this film!
Daniel Craig, Eva Green and others are pining for an extended version of the flick to appear on its DVD.
Also shot but not included in the theatrical release of “Compass” — and therefore available for inclusion in the extended version — is more back story relating to the love narrative between the witch Serafina and Farder Coram.
“She had a love affair 50 years ago,” explained Eva Green, who plays Serafina, “when Farder Coram was 30-something. They had a child together, but the child died, and she had to go back to her world and become queen, while he just became an old man.”
In the world of “The Golden Compass,” witches live for hundreds of years, so while Farder Coram got old, she did not. So in the scene that was shot (but not used), she doesn’t wish to remind him of their heartbreak when she visits the boat he’s on, so she turns invisible for a moment.
“He can’t see her, and it’s painful for her too,” Green said. “So when he goes up on deck, she disappears, and he can sense her, or at least he senses something, but he goes back under, and he’s very sad. It makes her cry.”
Green says she understands why the scene was cut from the film. “You can’t have everything in a movie like that,” she said. “You have to make sacrifices.” But she’s hopeful it’ll be returned to a director’s cut. “It’s such a sad story,” she said.
“There’s a lot of those little kinds of detours along the way that didn’t serve the movie or move the plot forward. There can’t be that many more versions, like the X-rated version,” Weitz joked, “but there are some aspects, like more time with the Gyptians, that can be brought out in a director’s cut. It would be fun for the readers of the books.”
Eva was Maxim’s Girlfriend of the Day this Friday, December 7th.
Doing our part to go Green.
Double-O Sexy: This exquisite French pastry may have gained notoriety in America for her part as a Bond babe in Casino Royale, but it was her floppy parts on display in The Dreamers that had us shaken and stirred. Today, she reteams with her 007 in the arctic fantasy thriller The Golden Compass. Hope she (polar) bares all again!

Le monde où vit Lyra, l’héroïne de La boussole d’or (The Golden Compass en version originale anglaise) de Chris Weitz, à l’affiche vendredi, est habité par plusieurs espèces non humaines, mais très pensantes dont les sorcières.
Et parmi les sorcières, la reine du clan du lac Enara, Serafina Pekkala. «Ce n’est pas une sorcière traditionnelle. Elle est très belle, très maternelle envers Lyra. Une sorcière blanche, je dirais», raconte Eva Green, qui se glisse ainsi dans la peau d’un personnage «presque immortel, indépendant, qui ne croit pas aux doctrines des hommes, est très près de la nature mais qui est trop mystique pour me ressembler vraiment!»
