Who’s Eva ?

¤ What makes an actress a legend ? 


Background

Eva Green was born in Paris, she attended a bilingual school hence her command of English. Her mum is a former actress. Her dad is French-Swedish  and was a dentist. Eva Green has a twin sister.

Favourite things

City : Paris. It’s where I was born, it’s where my heart is.

Book : My favourite book is actually a play: Miss Else, by Arthur Schnitzler. I learned lots of monologues from it in drama school, and I really love the characters: they’re dark and funny.

Restaurant : St John’s in London. The ingredients are really good, the food is simple – it’s kind of bistro-y, English cuisine. Plus, the desserts are to die for.

Film : Cries And Whispers by Ingmar Bergman [a 1972 Swedish film]. It’s just so beautiful. I think Bergman is a genius: his work is very sensitive.

Holiday destination : South Africa, definitely. I was there a year ago, near the Kruger National Park. It was amazing: you’re there with all the animals, it makes you feel very alive.

Outfit on a man : I like a man to wear comfortable clothes – it’s boring, but I love to be relaxed. I like wearing black leggings and t-shirts, something easy.

Way to relaxWalking or running. I can’t lie down – I need to let it all out.

Alcoholic drink : Red wine. I love a good Bordeaux.

Piece of life adviceIt sounds cheese-y, but don’t worry too much. Life is short.

Thing about London : I love the restaurants – the average place is much better than it is in Paris. And the parks, it’s so lovely to just walk for hours in such a green city. My favourite spot is Primrose Hill because there’s lots of dogs there – I’m a big dog lover.

On screen idol : Bette Davis. She’s my role model – she was fun and naughty.

Item you’d save from a burning building : My glasses – I’m very short sighted.

Career

It is good to clarify that Eva Green apart from Hollywood movies ( she was also in two well known sequels 300 and Sin City) chooses foreign independent projects from time to time, she is to star a Swedish movie alongside Alicia Vikander.
