Eva Green and her mother, former actress and author Marlène Jobert (with over 20 million copies sold, she’s only behind J.K. Rowling when it comes to children’s books in France), are featured in Vanity Fair Italy. Ms Jobert was interviewed about her autobiography, her life, her family and her career.
The main photo was published by Paris Match back on November 6, 2014, but the interview is brand new.

Eva Green feels more like herself when she’s ditched her natural hair colour.
The 34-year-old actress is a natural blonde, but usually sports much darker tresses. That’s been the way for many years, with Eva explaining she feels brunette suits her personality much better, so has stuck with in since first reaching for the dye at 15.
“I wanted to change something. You know, like when you go through your teenage years. I hated school. I was a good student, but I just wanted to breathe in something new,” she told WWD. “I was in awe of a friend of my mum, who had dark hair. She was quite weird, beautiful. I was like, ‘Oh wow, I’ll go to the hairdresser and try that.’ So I went there, I dyed my hair blue-black and came back home. It took me a while to get used to it, and then I actually really liked it. I felt more like myself. It’s weird.”
Eva was talking as part of her role as L’Oréal Professionnel international spokesperson. The brand is releasing a new range called Pro Fiber, which aims to help repair damaged hair.
It’s something the star can get on board with because she’s changed her look a lot for roles, including sporting red tresses and experimenting with fringes.
“Hair defines your character, your state of mind. At the moment I’m in a [Tim] Burton film, and it took weeks and weeks to find the right hairdo. It’s kind of a weird character. Her name is Miss Peregrine, so there is a bit of a birdlike hairdo in her. It helps you to create the character when you find the hairdo. It’s also like a costume,” she said.
The actress was also quizzed on her beauty secrets and was happy to let a couple slip. Unfortunately, there is no quick route to her slim physique and porcelain skin – it’s all about being careful.
“Sun cream, protection, food — what we eat is the most important: lots of green vegetables, raw vegetables, organic. Everything has to be organic,” she said.
The best way to shake things up.
New York, around 1872. Campari and the shaker (patented in the Big Apple in that year) were invented at almost the same time and soon became a twosome. Perhaps this is why together they create something special.

Eva Green loves extreme shades when it comes to her hair.
The former Bond girl is known for her striking looks and raven hair. Her natural colour is actually dark blonde which the 35-year-old has always found dull so she likes to experiment – but has had some mishaps along the way.
“I’ve dyed my hair black since I was 15. One of my mum’s friends had very dark hair and blue eyes and I just thought, ‘OK, I have to try it!'” she told British InStyle. “I felt more like myself after I made the colour change. I love extreme shades – I’ve been dark blue, a dark brown and even red at one point. That was a challenging shade because it eventually went green!”
One colour Eva would love to try is bright blonde. But just like Kim Kardashian, who had to give up her platinum locks after only a few weeks earlier this year, the actress thinks it would be too much strain on her tresses.
“I’ve done movies with a blonde wig and I’d love to go blonde. But colourists say it would destroy my hair because of how much I’d have to bleach it,” she explained. “My hair got very damaged because it’s super straight and I always use tongs to give it texture. I’ve just had the new L’Oréal Professionel Pro Fibre Revive in-salon treatment – it makes your hair shiny and healthy.”
Eva likes to be experimental when it comes to her make-up looks too, although it wasn’t always the case.
“I was shy until I was 16 and started at the American School of Paris. It was a chance to be a new me,” she said. “I had new black hair and would match my eyeshadow with my clothes so I’d wear purple or green. It was very theatrical.”

Turin, 1931. It is said that this drink got its name from one of its original components, a spirit scented with white rose (“rosa bianca” in Italian). It was created in the restaurant where members of the Futurist art movement used to meet, becoming one of their official drinks.

Eva Green is like a vampire because she has to be so careful in the sun.
The 35-year-old actress has completely embraced her ultra pale skin, which means she goes to great lengths to protect it. Even when there is no threat of sun she slathers on sun protection as she knows how sensitive her skin can be.
“I’m like a vampire. I have to wear sunscreen or I look like a prawn! Even in winter I wear SPF30 – Skinceuticals Brightening UV Defence SPF30 and La Roche-Posay Anthelios Face Anti-Shine Dry Touch Gel SPF50+ are my favourites. It’s easier to apply make-up over the top of SPF30 than 50, which can be thick,” she told British magazine InStyle. “I have thin, fragile skin so I’m not a big fan of exfoliating and I don’t tend to get facials either.”
That’s not the only way the French star cares for herself. She’s also very particular about what she will and won’t eat, something she thinks many other people could learn from her.
“My diet is very LA; I eat mainly organic food. The amount of pesticides in our food is outrageous and so many people aren’t aware of what they’re eating,” she explained. “I drink lots of juices and eat kale, and have loads of energy as a result. I’m reading a great book by Dr Joel Fuhrman called Super Immunity about how you can cure all sorts of diseases with food.”
Alongside this, Eva works out regularly. For her exercise it’s just about keeping her body lean though, it’s more how it cares for her wellbeing that she likes.
“I run outside to help with my nerves. It’s a good way to get rid of your demons. Gyms are a bit depressing. You feel like a hamster on a wheel,” she said.
