Eva Green thinks Matt Smith will make an “amazing” Doctor Who.
The Bond girl, who stars alongside Matt in their new flick Womb, thinks he will be great at the role.
She said: “He’s great, he is very instinctive, very eccentric, very unusual and very unique which is good for an actor.”
She added: “He is very, very funny, he can do anything.”
However, Eva doesn’t actually watch the show herself.
“I live in France so I am not very familiar with the Doctor Who,” she explained. “But I know he will do an amazing job.”
The film, which comes out later this year, sees a woman cloning her lover after he dies suddenly.

Thanks to George for the heads up!
Eva Green said she admires Angelina Jolie for her “good heart”.
The Bond Girl revealed she’s impressed by the Changeling star’s dedication to good causes, saying: “What Angelina Jolie does is fantastic, she has a great heart and she’s very, very involved and it is important.”
Eva is doing her own bit for charity and has launched Montblanc’s Meisterstuck special edition pen as part of their Signature For Good campaign, which raises money for Unicef’s worldwide education and literacy programmes.
“If you can help, and your image can help to raise money or to make people understand things faster or clearer you should,” the French actress said.
Eva went on: “I read somewhere that there are more than 150 million people who can’t read which is kind of crazy, it’s like a different planet.
“To help people in the third world get educated and learn how to read and write is so important, I mean it is such an important human right.”

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.”

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.

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.
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!

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.
