She achieved greater fame for her parts in Kingdom of Heaven (2005), and in the 2006 James Bond film Casino Royale, for which she won a BAFTA. She has also modeled for numerous brands.

    Eva Green Hairstyles Photoshoot 4Eva Green was born 5 July 1980 in Paris, the daughter of French actress Marlène Jobert and Swedish dentist Walter Green. She grew up in the 16th arrondissement of Paris. She is of Algerian, Turkish, Swedish, and Spanish descent.[4] Green has a fraternal twin sister named Joy, who was born two minutes earlier than she was.[5] Green described her family as "bourgeois",[6] and says that her sister is very different from her.[7] Green is a natural dark blonde; she dyed her hair black aged 15.[8][9] French-Swedish actress Marika Green is her aunt.

    Eva Green Hairstyles Photoshoot 5Green was raised in France, went to the American School of Paris where she graduated, and spent some time in Ramsgate, London and Ireland.[10] Her school was English-speaking.[8] Green was quiet at school,[7] and developed an interest in Egyptology when she visited the Louvre at age seven.[11] Green aspired to become an actress at age fourteen, when she saw Isabelle Adjani in The Story of Adele H.. Jobert initially feared the effect an acting career would have on her sensitive daughter, but she soon supported her ambitions.[10]

    Eva Green Hairstyles Photoshoot 6Eva Green enrolled at Eva St. Paul Drama School in Paris for three years, and then spent 10 weeks at Webber Dnuglas Academy of Dramatic Art in London.[1] Green stated that at drama school, "I always picked the really evil roles. It's a great way to deal with your everyday emotions."[13] Green trained at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts in New York City,[2] before she returned to Paris, where she performed in several plays.[10] Green was nominated for a Molière Award for her performance in Jalousie en Trois Fax.[14] Director Bernardo Bertolucci discovered Green in 2002, and found her "so beautiful, it's indecent". She accepted his invitation to star in The Dreamers (2003),

    Eva Green Hairstyles Photoshoot 7IF EVA GREEN HAD HER WAY, she’d be starring in a remake of Mata Hari, the 1931 espionage drama that saw Greta Garbo don the bejeweled headdresses of the titular dancing spy. The larger-than-life character is the one 30-year-old Green says she’s most desperate to play, which, of course, couldn’t make more sense.

    Eva Green Hairstyles Photoshoot 8Widely regarded as the 20th century’s foremost femme fatale, Mata Hari, who in 1917 was executed for allegedly spying for Germany during World War I, would prove the ultimate conquest for Green, whose relatively short filmography is already brimming with vamps and vixens to be reckoned with.

    Eva Green Hairstyles Photoshoot 9“I think it’s always interesting for a character to have a secret,” Green says in a recent phone interview, the poor connection no match for the rich timbre of her distinctive voice. “Something dark for the audience to discover.”

    Eva Green Hairstyles Photoshoot 10

    Eva Green Hairstyles Photoshoot 10“Dark” and “secret” are words that spring to mind just from looking at this French actress, her ambiguous pout and smoky-eyed stare as unnerving as they are sexy. Over the past decade, Green has portrayed a witch in The Golden Compass, a princess capable of murdering her own son in Kingdom of Heaven, and the enigmatic double agent and Bond girl Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale (“It made me famous,” Green says of the latter).

    Eva Green Hairstyles Photoshoot 11But femme fatale archetypes, Green insists, aren’t the only characters she’s after, nor is fame a primary pursuit. Her upcoming films include the German-made cloning drama Womb and the Sundance selection Perfect Sense, two little-known projects in which she plays a “nerdy, shy character” and a “normal character,” respectively. She can currently be seen in Cracks, a boarding-school period piece from Jordan Scott, daughter of Green’s Kingdom of Heaven director, the great Ridley Scott. While she certainly meets Green’s criteria of dark and secretive, Green’s character, an ostensibly id-driven English swimming instructor known only as Miss G., doesn’t wield any literal weapons or ensnare men. She does, however, bewitch the bevy of teenage girls who idolize her, and are entranced by her feminist impulses, her wild stories and her worldview, which bucks the norms of the film’s 1930s setting (smoking and preaching the supreme merit of “desire!” she’s like Mona Lisa Smile’s whore cousin).

    Eva Green Hairstyles Photoshoot 12“Don’t think; do!” Miss G. tells her captivated pupils, whose social hierarchy is dependent upon who can best fill the role of teacher’s pet. But is Miss G. as free-spirited and forward-minded as she seems? Green, who in her own life is more thinker than doer (“I should cut off my head sometimes in order to get things done,” she says), had a blast constructing, then deconstructing, her complicated screen persona, who’s surely the main attraction, if not quite the main character. Known for her bold fashion sense and occasional modeling gigs (Emporio Armani, Dior), Green worked closely with costume designer Alison Byrne to develop a look for Miss G., whose flowing frocks and glamorous headbands and hairstyles evoke film actresses of the era.

    Eva Green Hairstyles Photoshoot 13But, naturally, everything is not perfect, and as the mystique of Miss G. unravels, her wardrobe does, too. Jewelry, tailored jackets and finger waves give way to frumpy housecoats, unkempt coifs and no makeup. It comes as no surprise that Green reveled in the character’s downward spiral, digging into the aesthetic and dramatic opportunities of a classic movie breakdown. But the arc of Miss G. is what appealed to the actress

    Eva Green Hairstyles Photoshoot 14“It’s difficult to find good, multi-faceted roles in movies for women,” she says. “I need to fall in love with the character. I cannot just do something for the sake of it or for the money, otherwise I think I’d die. I have to fall in love with it. I’m picky—too picky, probably.”

    Eva Green Hairstyles Photoshoot 15

    Eva Green Hairstyles Photoshoot 15Green’s discriminating instincts haven’t exactly steered her wrong. Along with a perceptive mentor and a whole lot of nerve, she has them to thank for her breakthrough. In 2002, when Green was discovered by Italian provocateur Bernardo Bertolucci and offered a major role in his forthcoming film The Dreamers, she was urged by her family and entourage to decline. The 2003 movie, which co-stars Louis Garrel and Michael Pitt and shows a whole lot of skin, didn’t scream “wise career move” to Green’s camp. But Green ignored the warnings, having long been a fan of Bertolucci’s controversial classic Last Tango in Paris. The Dreamers, a daringly beautiful film (which, incidentally, features Green doing Garbo while play-acting scenes from Queen Christina), became an arthouse and critical success, and it gave Green a helluva first experience as a bigscreen actress.
