Eva Green has said playing a lesbian was “exactly the same” as playing a straight character.
The former Bond Girl portrays a 1930s boarding school teacher who seduces one of her female pupils in forthcoming film Cracks, but wasn’t phased by acting opposite someone of the same sex.
“It is exactly the same – it doesn’t make a difference whether it is a woman or a man,” the Casino Royale beauty said.
Eva said the subject matter of the new flick – due out later this year – is “quite taboo”.
“It is about a passionate relationship, it is good, intense and quite an unusual story,” she said.
Asked whether she thought it might cause an uproar, the French actress said: “I don’t know, I haven’t seen it yet, to me it more of a love story and how far you can go. It is about obsession and innocence, it is very interesting.”

Thank you, mata!
Thanks to Kajual for the heads-up! 😀
Thanks to Elmira! 😀
Eva arrived in Cannes and attended the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS 2009 benefit that took place tonight – and surprises not just in a gorgeous pink dress (Dior maybe?) but also with a new hair colour. Eva is a redhead! 😉
A few pics for you to admire, I will add more as they appear. 😀
Pourquoi avez-vous choisi Charlotte Gainsbourg ?
J’ai fait quelques auditions, notamment avec Eva Green, mais son contrat était trop compliqué. Charlotte Gainsbourg s’est imposée en s’investissant beaucoup dans le projet. C’est une personne très timide. Nous n’avons pas beaucoup parlé mais elle a immédiatement adhéré au film. De manière générale, j’ai toujours préféré diriger les actrices plutôt que les acteurs.

Thanks to Lorna! 😀
Just in case there are some Romanians with access to a scanner visiting us, Eva is gracing the cover of the Romanian magazine Bolero this May. You can view the cover here.
Another Italian magazine with a brand new and exclusive interview with Eva Green! 😀

Comments Off on Italian Scans Pt. 1: Film TV
I’ve scanned Film TV today with a special article on “Franklyn”. I apologize but I currently have absolutely no time to translate the articles/interviews, or to make highlights of the most important parts. So if any Italian-speaking fan is willing to do so, the other fans will greatly appreciate, I’m sure of it.
I can only share this tidbit for now: Producer Jeremy Thomas has been on good terms with Eva Green since The Dreamers and she has showed interest for the project since the beginning. Ryan Phillippe was glad to show his experience in martial arts, and wanted to play without a stuntman, even the scenes where he wears a mask.
UK Magazine Alert: Eva is featured in the new issue of GQ UK with Simon Pegg on the cover. I won’t be able to provide any scans, at least not before next week. So if you can buy it or have it, please consider donating scans!

Packing: “My contact lenses, my iPod and a pair of Dior sunglasses.”

Mickey Rourke and Eva Green are attached to star in a remake of the 1986 film Mona Lisa directed by Larry Clark (Kids). Mona Lisa is a remake of the movie that made Bob Hoskins famous back in 1986. Neil Jordan’s Mona Lisa was about an ex-con who becomes the driver for a high-priced call girl played by Cathy Tyson. Michael Caine was also in it as a mob boss.
Yes, confirmed. But under reservations because of EG and MR’s schedules. Until further notice, they’re both attached to the project. Attached is the word. Hayden Christensen was once attached to it as well. Let’s see how it goes.
Thank you, mata!
My offline life has been keeping me beyond busy, so don’t take it personally if you emailed me and I didn’t reply yet or didn’t upload your eventual contribution. I really appreciate your feedback, visits and contributions! Don’t ever doubt it! 😉 I’ll try to reply when I can and if your email needs a reply. Hopefully I miss any. A robot would be very helpful right now. 😀
Many thanks to Tascha for this new and beyond beautiful shot of Eva in “Womb”. Tascha has also sent me some very interesting and cool photos of “Eva’s London” that I’ll be posting at the end of the week. 😉
Eva is currently filming in Berlin.
