After meeting Marton Chokash on the set of the film Kingdom of Heaven, Eve met him for 5 years. In 2009, the couple announced their breakup. Eva Green considers himself a nerd.
When people first meet me, they find me very cold. I keep myself at a distance - and I think that is why I am so drawn to acting. This allows me to wear a mask.
Green expressed interest in returning to the theater. She said that she does not plan to work in Hollywood: “The problem with Hollywood is that film studios are very influential; they are much more powerful than directors. My goal at the moment is just to find a good script. ” She added that in Hollywood she would surely be offered the roles of femme fatales. Green supports UNICEF. She expressed interest in taxidermy and entomology. She collects canned skulls and insects.
In 2014, after the role of the white witch in the TV series “Scary Tales”, she talked about her spiritual side.

Theater and cinema
After graduating, Green returned to Paris to start an acting career. Eva's first steps as an actress were roles in several theater productions, such as La Jalousie en Trois Fax (2001), for which she was nominated for the Molière Prize, and Turcaret (2002). As the actress later confessed, when she attended drama school she always played negative characters. "This is a great way to cope with everyday emotions."
It was in the theater that the cult director Bernardo Bertolucci noticed her, who later called Green "beautiful to the obscene." He invited Eve to participate in his film "Dreamers". The overwhelming nudity role of Isabelle, a spoiled Parisian who is fond of movies and sexual experiments with a shy American and her own brother, instantly brought Eve to glory.
Critics praised the game Green, some of them even compared it with Liv Tyler. After the release of the drama, Green told the Guardian newspaper that the agent and parents persuaded her not to act in the film, because they feared that Eva might expect “the same fate as Maria Schneider”. She received a traumatic experience during the filming of the drama “The Last Tango in Paris”. Green herself felt comfortable in the process of filming nude and sex scenes, but was embarrassed when her family watched the movie.
After the film “Dreamers”, Eva starred in another French film “Arsen Lupine”, in which she performed the role of Clarissa, the lover of Lupine. Despite sympathy for her heroine, Green stated that she prefers to play more complex characters. Next came the suggestion of filming in Hollywood.
Also, Eva, impressed by the ambiguity of the film, was disappointed by the small presence of her heroine on the screen. Soon after adding her character’s complex plot scenes to the director’s version, Green was satisfied. The historical drama was mixed with critics, but the cast was impressed. Stephanie Zaharek from Salon.com praised her performance and said:
She does not quite understand what to do with the pompous phrases of her heroine, but she keeps so royal that you will not notice the trick!
Niv Pierce of the BBC, however, called her character "lame."
Subsequently, Eva Green was a candidate for roles in the films "The Devoted Gardener" and "Black Orchid", but the roles were given to other actresses.
The next movie of the actress is the action movie of the Casino Royale, where she turned into the legendary Bond girl Vesper Lynd: producers Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, who decided to “update” the series about the famous 007 agent, preferred Eve to other star names. Green was offered a role in mid-2005, but she initially refused.
She later re-read the script, and found that Vesper's character is much deeper than other Bond girls, and agreed to act. Green's acting job was well received: Entertainment Weekly called her the fourth “best Bond girl of all time”, and IGN called her “the best femme fatale”. For the role of Vesper, the actress in 2007 was awarded the Empire Award and was nominated for "Saturn". In the same year, at the BAFTA Award Ceremony, she won the Rising Star Award for her creative achievements throughout the year.
In 2007, Eva Green starred in the film adaptation of the fantastic tale "The Golden Compass", the first part of the popular book series "Dark beginnings" by Philip Pullman. She played the role of the queen of witches Serafina Pekkaly. Because of the fear of heights, on the last day of filming, the actress refused to retake scenes when she had problems with the seat belt.
In the same year, she was considered for a role in the film “Family Secret”, which eventually went to another French actress, Cecil de France. In addition, she planned to get a major role in the drama "Antichrist" directed by Lars von Trier. Trier claimed that Green was willing to act in the film, but her agents were not allowed to sign the contract.
Anglo-French actress Charlotte Gainsbourg subsequently received the role. Green later said that she was on good terms with Trier, “but then we started talking about nudity, sex, and so on. The conversation went too far ... It was my dream to work with him, but it's a shame that it was on this film, that it almost happened. I'm sure I'm not worth working on this film. ”
In 2009, Green appeared in the film "Franklin", where she played the role of the girl Emilia, suffering from a split personality. Green's acting was coolly greeted by critics: Derek Ellie (Variety) poorly rated the cast, stating that "Green failed to vividly show her dual role." In the same year, she starred in the independent film “Cracks,” where she performed the role of Miss Ji's teacher, who took care of six girls in a boarding school.
In 2011, Eva Green worked on the television series Camelot, where she appeared as the fairy Morgans. Green said about her character: “This is such a symbolic story, and you have 10 episodes to study the character. This is not the role of a friend that you could play in a movie. This is a real pushy character. ”
In the same year, Green received the role of the witch Angelica Bouchard in the tragicomedy “Dark Shadows”, where Johnny Depp became her partner on the set. It is because of this film that rumors about the novel Green and Depp appeared, as a result of which he broke up with Vanessa Paradis. Eva herself has denied this information.
As a model, Eva Green collaborated with such well-known companies as Lancome, Emporio Armani, Christian Dior, L'Oreal. In addition, it can be seen in video ads of Heineken beer and Midnight Poison spirits. Appeared on the covers of numerous magazines, including L'Officiel, MAX, GQ, Vogue and others.
