Before I continue with the “Return to the Past” series, here’s a gorgeous scan of a grow-up Eva from the time of the “Kingdom of Heaven” promotion.

French actress Eva Green has blown open the Gallic myth that English men lack that certain ‘je ne sais quoi’.

The Bond girl, who lives alone in her adopted home town of London, said she’s more than willing to give Blighty’s finest a chance.

‘The cliché of the Englishman – quite uptight, the head not quite connected to the body – I’ve found generally to be untrue,’ the 28-year-old said.

But she added her steamy scene with Daniel Craig in Casino Royale didn’t really float her boat.

‘We tried our best to make it look convincing but it’s a long way away from real kissing,’ she told GQ magazine.

More exclusive scans from the past!

February 1980: Marlène Jobert had just found out that she was expecting twins and she was very excited about it! She said it was amazing to be pregnant with twins at 37. She said that very often only children always had problems but at the same time if she didn’t get pregnant with twins, she probably wouldn’t get pregnant a second time. She took a while before deciding to be a mother. Her fiance, Walter Green, wanted a child but she hesitated. And then, she went for it. She decided to “dive”. The former French actress said she was in the fresh water of serenity. She said her ideal would be to have a boy and a girl. She jokingly said she’d name them “Tristan and Isolde” or “Paul and Virginie”. But in fact she wasn’t worried about the gender of her babies. She already knew they were going to be non-identical though. Twins were quite common in the Jobert family! Marlène has non-identical twin sisters: Michèle and Christiane (they’re photographed together). And her maternal grandfather also had a twin brother! We can also see a very young Elsa with her aunt.

La sulfureuse James Bond girl de « Casino Royale » prépare son grand retour sur les écrans*. Dans la vie, la fille de Marlène Jobert est drôle et originale. Londres, son boy-friend… elle nous dit tout.

* Elle sera bientôt à l’affiche de « Franklyn », de Gerald McMorrow, et de « Cracks », de Jordan Scott.

En ce moment, je suis très petite fille modèle. Le matin, j’ai arrêté les croissants et je me suis mise au porridge. Et au sport. C’est la torture, mais il paraît que c’est bon pour moi. Je me réveille, grâce à mon portable, à 7h30. Charmante sonnerie. Je bâille et je reste cinq minutes au lit pour envoyer des informations à mon cerveau du genre : « Où j’habite ? Comment je m’appelle ? Que dois-je faire ? » Et là, je pense aux gens qui vont au bureau chaque matin. En plus, il fait nuit. Moi, je suis une enfant gâtée. C’est mon coach sportif qui me sort du lit. Ça ne rigole pas. Je fais plein d’exercices de stretching. Après ça, je suis parfaitement réveillée. J’enchaîne sur un cours de diction avec mon « dialect coach » jusqu’à midi et demi. Je travaille mon accent anglais pour mes rôles. Je vis à Londres depuis quatre ans. A Little Venice, dans l’ouest de la ville, métro Warwick Avenue. On appelle ça « la petite Venise » car il y a un canal avec de magnifiques maisons géorgiennes du XVIIIe siècle.

Chez moi, c’est un peu ambiance « Alice au pays des merveilles ». J’ai des goûts exotiques, bizarres… Dans mon bureau, par exemple, j’ai exposé ma collection d’insectes épinglés sous verre. Des papillons, des cafards… mais, attention, c’est très, très beau ! Je les déniche dans la boutique The Evolution Store, 120 Spring Street, à New York (http://theevolutionstore.com). Je viens aussi d’acheter un crâne de buffle, sur un marché en Chine, avec des dessins dessus. Et, dans mon salon, j’ai entreposé des colonnes indiennes par terre depuis des mois. Ça fait un peu temple. J’achète beaucoup aux puces de Saint-Ouen. A Londres, 48 Hoxton Square, j’aime la galerie White Cube (www.whitecube.com). Mais je ne suis pas collectionneuse d’art comme je l’ai lu sur Internet, j’achète des merdes aussi !

Chaque rôle, je le prépare à fond. Je travaille beaucoup avec Eva Saint-Paul. J’ai commencé à prendre des cours de théâtre avec elle à l’âge de 18 ans. C’est la meilleure directrice d’acteurs que je connaisse. Elle a une intelligence du texte immédiate. On parle des rôles, elle sait exactement sur quel bouton appuyer pour faire sortir les émotions. Avant, en cours de comédie, j’étais plus sur la défensive, un peu rebelle. Aujourd’hui, je me laisse guider. De toute façon, pendant un tournage, ce n’est jamais ce qu’on attend. C’est la surprise de l’alchimie. C’est sur un plateau de cinéma que j’ai rencontré mon copain (ndlr : le Néo-Zélandais Marton Csokas). Il est acteur comme moi, globe-trotteur comme moi.

A midi, je déjeune de temps en temps au St John, 94-96 Commercial Street (www.stjohnrestaurant.co.uk), avec mon agent en Angleterre, Michelle. Je l’ai rencontrée peu après mon premier film, « Innocents », de Bernardo Bertolucci, en 2003. L’après-midi, je me relaxe chez moi, je lis mes mails ou alors je fais un tour à la Tate Modern. Depuis que je suis égérie Mont-Blanc, je fais un effort côté fringues et bijoux. Sinon, c’est beaucoup jean et haut de chez TopShop.
J’achète mon pain chez Baker and Spice* (20 Clifton Road, Madia Vale) et ma confiture à la fromagerie**, sur Moxon Street… C’est terrible pour les fesses !

Mon truc anti-coup de blues, c’est de prendre l’Eurostar pour Paris. Paris me manque. C’est ma maison. Quand je reviens, je vois mes amis (quelques acteurs, beaucoup d’artistes – coiffeurs, maquilleurs…) et, surtout, mes parents. Mon père, Walter Green, est chirurgien-dentiste, il est suédois. Ma mère suit de près ma carrière, mais elle me laisse libre de mes choix. Une maman, quoi ! Sinon, je vais souvent en Normandie dans notre maison de famille. Le soir, si je suis à la maison, je m’adonne à la cérémonie du bain. J’adore ma salle de bains. Elle est toute vert foncé avec des motifs dorés. Très kitsch, très boudoir. Je mets des bougies partout, quelques gouttes d’huile essentielle de fleur d’oranger et… la « Symphonie n° 5 » de Gustav Mahler. Une fois au lit, je m’endors hyper vite. Comme un bébé.

More vintage Eva, Joy, Marlène Jobert and Walter Green! :)

Eva and Joy were definitely much loved children! :)

January 16th, 2009   M. Gallery, Interview 11 Comments

Today I bring you another raritie from Eva’s childhood, and old issue of Paris Match with her mother Marlène Jobert on the cover. Jobert, who was supposed to promote a film, couldn’t stop talking about her twins Joy and Eva. In fact, the proud mother said that she didn’t call the girls “twins” but “kittens” or other sweet names instead, because she wanted them to be different from each other, and have their own personality since the beginning. Apparently Joy isn’t actually Joy’s first name. We weren’t sure about it, but another old issue of Paris Match did call her Johanne. This week calls her Jo-Ann but tells us that Marlène calls her Joy instead of Jo-Ann. Jobert confirms that Joy is her middle name, and that at first they weren’t sure if they should call her Joy because they weren’t sure that Joy Green would be phonetically pretty but that they changed their mind with time. She also said that she thought of Joy and Eva Green because they both have the same numbers of letters and that they’d take the same amount of time to write their names at school. The actress also said that her babies were very different from each other even at 6 months old! Joy was more independent, she could play for hours in her craddle, all by herself. But Eva loved to be with her parents. But they both had one thing in common: they were little girls who hardly ever cried, who didn’t give any trouble to sleep, and woke up with a smile on their faces!

Many thanks to the sweet Francesca and Olga for sending in scans from Vanity Fair Italy and Russian clippings from when Eva last went to Moscow.

Thank you!!! :)

EDIT: Francesca sent me today the missing page from Vanity Fair Italy with a brand new Eva interview. Be sure to check it out because it’s a very good one!

Highlights: (George, I translated it myself.)
– Eva mentions this crazy store in New York called Evolution where they sell skeletons, fossils and insects. She says that she bought some of her favourite things there: framed butterflies and insects of all different kinds. “They’re very beautiful.”
– She considers her most precious thing to be her London apartment. It’s not about the price itself. She filled it with Chinese and Indian furniture. She admits that maybe she exaggerated a bit, because she’s been told that one has the impression to be inside a temple, but she likes it that way. She says she’s not rich to afford big luxuries, but that she likes to buy things for her apartment. She also likes to go to Chinese restaurants. She confesses she’s not the best cook around, so when she invites friends for dinner, it makes taking them out to a restaurant and paying for their meals.
– She doesn’t feel like her career slowed down after Casino Royale. On the opposite. She considers the Bond experience a blessing. She says that she’s “difficult”, that she doesn’t do films just for the sake of doing films. So she wanted to wait a bit until she received two great scripts: Franklyn and Cracks.
– When asked if she doesn’t think that everything would be easier if she didn’t start in a Bertolucci film, she answers that she didn’t choose to debut with Bertolucci. She didn’t even believe when she was told she got the part of Isabelle.
– When asked what she’d do if she was told that the highlight of her career is already in the past, she says that she’d probably kill herself. Or that maybe she’d go live in a place full of animals, like her twin sister did with her horses in Normandy. “You know, she married an Antinori, very chic (she winks).” But if she could choose the animals, she’d choose monkeys instead. “But, anyway, we can’t predict the future, and it’s better that way.”
– When asked if it’s true that she calls her dog Griffin “her husband”, she answers that it’d be sad if it were true. She says that she made a joke during an interview and that they took her too seriously.
– Vanity Fair tells her that one doesn’t expect a “dark lady” to be ironic. Eva replies that this “dark lady thing” was created by the press only because she likes to wear black makeup around her eyes. She says that she has a bright side and a dark side, like everyone else. She’s aware that the fact that she played complex characters didn’t help. But, when going to this specific interview, she saw Tropic Thunder on the plane, with Ben Stiller, and she thought that she’d like very much to do a film like that. She received some offers, but there’s a lot of competition among actresses. One has do do lots of auditions and in the end nothing happens. “It’s not like in the past when a director thought about his film building the character around the actress that he wanted to work with.”
– Then they ask about her boyfriend, the actor Marton Csokas, and how they deal with the distance, considering that he lives in Australia. Eva replies that they’ve been together for 3 years and that their relationship was a long-distance one for a while, but that they live together in London now. The advantage of a long-distance relationship, according to her, is that they didn’t know what routine was. But that the downside is that after a while, you start to feel bad because the other one isn’t around.
– Vanity Fair says that the distance isn’t good for the jealousy. Eva answers that she’s not particularly jealous. She has that healthy fear of losing someone she loves that everyone else does, but she manages to keep it under control without it becoming an obsession.

Thanks to Eva’s management, I can now confirm “Franklyn” will be released in the UK on 20th February. So, yes, the release date was postponed. I will let you know if I hear of any other European release dates. So in case you were planning to travel to London to watch the film, please reschedule your trip!

There are no projects as yet confirmed for this year.

PS: Evgeney, once again I have to tell you, we are not Eva Green!

Last but not least, here’s a new shot from “Franklyn” featuring the lovely Sam Riley and Eva Green:

“Franklyn” opens in the UK on January 30, 2009 and Sam Riley is already promoting it.

Here is interviewed in this Sunday’s Daily Mail and talks about “Franklyn” and working with Eva Green. There’s also a new still from it, which shows Sam with James Faulkner:

After the red carpets of New York, Cannes and Hollywood, he moved to Berlin to be with his girlfriend, the German actress Alexandra Maria Lara. He turned down several leads and waited months before signing up for sci-fi film Franklyn.

‘After Control I was offered a lot of lead roles as more suicidal young men,’ he says. ‘The answer was always, “No”.

‘I did Franklyn for the simple reason that it was good. A great story, a great script and something completely different, it has this incredible unexpected twist that merges two completely different worlds together. I loved it.’

The film is an otherworldly thriller romance.

‘There isn’t any film out there like Franklyn,’ says Riley. ‘I love the idea that you don’t know what’s real or not, and the whole idea that the film doesn’t have any of the usual love scenes – a relationship that’s just incredibly romantic was so different.’

It seems strangely unbelievable that after Control Riley would shun Hollywood. But Riley clearly likes to do the unexpected.

(…)

The buzz for Franklyn, which stars Eva Green and Ryan Phillippe, has already started.

‘It was massively important for me to play a second lead,’ says Riley. ‘I’m new, I’m learning. It’s the way you do it if you want to do it right. Eva was amazing to work with, she has this incredible energy and confidence.

‘But the biggest thing for me was to watch these two guys on set. Franklyn was massive learning curve for me. It’s not a film you can explain, you just have to see it. The look of it is unbelievable.’
