After meeting with Marton Chokash on the set of the film "Kingdom of Heaven", Eva met with him for 5 years. In 2009, the couple announced a break in relations. Eva Green considers herself a nerd.
When people first get to know me, they find me very cold. I keep myself at a distance - and I think that's why I'm so drawn to acting. This allows me to wear a mask.
Green expressed an interest in returning to the theater. She said that she does not plan to work in Hollywood: "The problem with Hollywood is that the studios are very influential; they are much more influential than the directors. My goal at the moment is just to find a good script. " She added that in Hollywood she certainly will be offered the role of females. 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 series "Scary Tales", she talked about her spiritual side. Greene noted that, although she is not religious, she believes in the supernatural. "There are forces, yes - I'm not religious, but I believe that there is something different," she commented to the press.
In 2007, Green was recognized as the sixth sexy movie star of all times by the magazine Empire. In 2011, according to the Los Angeles Times, Green ranked 18th in the list of 50 most beautiful women in the movie.
Theater and cinema
After graduation, Green returned to Paris to begin her acting career. The first steps of Eva as actresses were roles in several theatrical 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 admitted, when visiting a theater school she always played negative characters. "It's a great way to cope with everyday emotions."
It was in the theater that she was noticed by the cult director Bernardo Bertolucci, who subsequently called Green "beautiful to the point of obscurity". He invited Eve to participate in his film "Dreamers". Overwhelmed in terms of nudity, the role of Isabel, a spoiled Parisian, a keen film and sexual experiments with a shy American and her own brother, instantly led Eve to fame.
Critics praised the game Green, some of them even compared it to Liv Tyler. After the drama was released, Greene told the The Guardian in an interview that the agent and her parents had persuaded her not to act in the film, since they feared that Eve could 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 in the process of filming nude and sexy scenes felt comfortable, but was embarrassed when her family saw the film.
After the movie Dreamers, Eva starred in another French film, Arsene Lupine, in which she performed the role of Clarissa, Lupine's lover. Despite sympathy for her heroine, Greene said that she prefers playing more complex characters. Then she was followed by a proposal to shoot in Hollywood.
Also Eva, impressed by the ambiguity of the film, was disappointed by the too small presence of her character on the screen. Soon after the addition of the complex plot scenes of her character into the director's version, Green was satisfied. The historical drama was mixed with critics, but they were impressed with the cast. Stephanie Zaharek from Salon.com praised her performance and said:
She does not quite understand what to do with the pompous phrases of her character, but she keeps so regally that you will not notice the dirty trick!
Neve Pierce of the BBC, however, called her character "lame."
In the future, Eva Green was a nominee for roles in the films "The Betrayed Gardener" and "The Black Orchid", but the roles went to other actresses.
The next film of the actress is the action movie Casino Royale, where she turned into the legendary Bond girl Vesper Lind: producers Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, who decided to "update" the series about the famous 007 agent, preferred Eve to other star names. Green offered a role in mid-2005, but she initially refused.
Later, she re-read the script, and found that the character of Vesper is much deeper than other Bond girls, and agreed to act. Acting Green 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 and the nomination for "Saturn". In the same year at the BAFTA award ceremony, she won an award in the category "Rising Star" for her creative achievements throughout the year.
In 2007, Eva Green starred in the film adaptation of the fantastic fairy tale "The Golden Compass", the first part of the popular book series "Dark beginnings" by Philip Pullman. She played the role of queen of witches Seraphina Pekkaly. Because of the fear of height, on the last day of filming, the actress refused to reshoot the scenes when she had problems with the safety belt.
In the same year, she was considered for the role in the film "Family Secret", which eventually went to another French actress Cecile de France. In addition, she planned to get a major role in the drama "Antichrist" directed by Lars von Trier. Trier claimed that Green agreed to appear in the film, but her agents were not allowed to sign the contract.
Anglo-French actress Charlotte Gainsbourg subsequently won the role. Greene 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 that I'm not worthy to work in this film. "
In 2009, Green appeared in the film "Franklin", where she played the role of the girl Emilia, who suffers from a split personality. Green's actor's game was coolly received by critics: Derek Elley (Variety) weakly appreciated the cast, saying that "Green could not clearly show her double role." In the same year she starred in the independent film "Cracks", where she played the role of a teacher Miss Gee, who took care of six girls in a boarding school.
In 2011, Eva Green worked in the television series "Camelot", where she appeared in the image of the fairy Morgana. Green said about her character: "This is such a symbolic story, and you have 10 episodes to learn the character. It's 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 her partner in the set was Johnny Depp. It was because of this film that rumors about the novel of Green and Depp appeared, which caused him to part with Vanessa Paradis. Eva herself refuted this information.
As a model, Eva Green collaborated with such well-known firms as Lancome, Emporio Armani, Christian Dior, L'Oreal. In addition, it can be seen in the video advertising of Heineken beer and perfume Midnight Poison. She appeared on the covers of numerous magazines, including L'Officiel, MAX, GQ, Vogue and others.
