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 am so attracted to acting. This allows me to wear a mask.
Green expressed interest in returning to the theater. She said that she did not plan to work in Hollywood: “The problem with Hollywood is that movie studios are very influential; they influence much more than directors. My goal for now is just to find a good script. ” She added that in Hollywood, she will probably be offered the roles of femme fatale. 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.

Theater and Cinema
After graduating, Green returned to Paris to begin an acting career. Eve'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 an Moliere Award, and Turcaret (2002). As the actress later admitted, when she visited the theater school, she always played negative characters. “This is a great way to deal with everyday emotions.”
It was in the theater that she was noticed by the cult director Bernardo Bertolucci, who later called Green “beautiful to indecent”. He invited Eve to participate in his film "Dreamers." Ever-revealed in terms of nudity, the role of Isabelle, a spoiled Parisian, fond of cinema and sexual experiments with a shy American and her own brother, instantly brought Eve to fame.
Critics praised the game Green, some of them even compared it with Liv Tyler. Following the release of the drama, Green told The Guardian in an interview that the agent and her parents persuaded her not to act in the film, because they were afraid that Eve 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 during the filming of nude and sexual scenes felt comfortable, but was embarrassed when her family watched the film.
After the film "Dreamers" Eva starred in another French film "Arsene Lupine", in which she played the role of Clarissa, Lupine's mistress. Despite sympathy for her heroine, Green stated that she prefers to play 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 heroine on the screen. Soon after adding her character’s complex plot scenes to the directorial version, Green was satisfied. The historical drama was mixed by critics, but they were impressed by 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 heroine, but she is so regal that you will not notice the catch!
BBC's Neve Pierce, however, called her character “lame.”
Subsequently, Eva Green was a candidate for roles in the films “The Loyal Gardener” and “Black Orchid”, however, the roles went to other actresses.
The next film of the actress is the action movie “Casino Royale”, where she reincarnated as the legendary Bond girl Vesper Lind: producers Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, who decided to “update” the series about the famous agent 007, preferred Eve to other star names. Green was offered the 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 in film. Green's acting was well received: Entertainment Weekly named her fourth “Bond Girl of All Time”, and IGN called her “Best Fatal Woman.” For the role of Vesper, the actress in 2007 was awarded the Empire Prize and the Saturn nomination. 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 fairy tale Golden Compass, the first part of the popular book series Dark Beginnings by Philip Pulman. She played the role of the witch queen Serafina Pekkala. Due to fear of heights, on the last day of filming, the actress refused to shoot scenes when she had problems with a seat belt.
In the same year, she was considered for a role in the film "Family Secret", which eventually went to another French actress Cecile de France. In addition, she planned to get the main role in the drama "Antichrist" directed by Lars von Trier. Trier claimed that Green was willing to star in the film, but her agents were not allowed to sign the contract.
The Anglo-French actress Charlotte Gainsbourg subsequently received the role. Green later said that she had a good relationship 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 is a shame that it was on this film, that it almost happened. I’m sure that it’s not worth it to work in this film. ”
In 2009, Green appeared in the movie "Franklin", where she played the role of a girl Emilia, suffering from a split personality. The acting was greeted coolly by critics: Derek Ellie (Variety) gave a low rating to the cast, saying that "Green couldn’t clearly show her double role." In the same year, she starred in the independent film "Cracks", where she played the role of teacher Miss G, 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 of 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 assertive character. ”
In the same year, Green got the role of the witch Angelica Bouchard in the tragicomedy “Dark Shadows”, where Johnny Depp became her partner on the set. It was because of this film that rumors about the novel by Green and Depp appeared, as a result of which he parted with Vanessa Paradis. Eve herself denied this information.
As a model, Eva Green collaborated with such well-known companies as Lancome, Emporio Armani, Christian Dior, L'Oreal. It can also be seen in video ads for Heineken Beers and Midnight Poison Spirits. Appeared on the covers of numerous magazines, including L'Officiel, MAX, GQ, Vogue and others.
