Put together a list of the most versatile French actresses in Hollywood, and Eva Green will surely be at the top of the list. Just a few years after her professional acting career, Eva Green became a household name with her impeccable portrayal of Sibylla, Queen of Jerusalem in the Kingdom of Heaven (2005). Lovers of television shows would also recognize the actress best for her role as Morgan Pendragon in Starz’ Camelot.
She cemented her fame after playing the Bond girl Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale (2006). The role earned her a BAFTA Rising Star Award, and Green has actually been on the rise ever since. She now works frequently with award-winning filmmaker Tim Burton, and there are rumors that the two are even a romantic couple… more on this right here.
Let’s talk about everything there is to know about her, from her early years in the industry to her very private love life.
Eva Green Bio (Wiki), Age
Eva Gaëlle Green was born on July 6, 1980, in Paris, France, as the daughter of Walter Green and Marlène Jobert. Green comes from several ancestors, including Jews, Bretons, Swedes, and Algerians. Both of Green’s parents were actors, with her mother Marlène Jobert being more successful than her father.
Eva Green grew up at intervals in her life in Paris, London, and Ireland. She was a very shy and introverted child who often spent time alone in the house. The young girl was inspired to become an actress at the age of 14 after seeing The Story of Adele H., a historic French film from 1975. Her decision frightened her mother, who feared that her very sensitive daughter might suffer the enormous exposure that comes with acting. Green explained to the media that it was her calm that made her decide to take up acting because it allowed her to wear a mask.
The talented actress attended the English-speaking American University of Paris and studied acting at the St. Paul Acting School in Paris. She also trained at the Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art in London. Green began her career at the Paris theaters before she made her debut as Isabelle in The Dreamers. She received much praise from critics for the role, which opened the doors to a career that quickly made her an international star.
Other films she has appeared in since including The Golden Compass as Serafina Pekkala, Perfect Sense as Susan, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For as the character Ava Lord and as Colette Marchant in Dumbo.
When Eva Green was born, she was accompanied by a twin. Two minutes after she was born, her fraternal twin sister Joy Green followed. Eva described her sister as very different from her. The difference is not only in character but also in appearance. Eva and Joy are not identical. Joy Green studied economics at college and now lives with her Italian count husband in Normandy, France. Eva’s twin sister has a fondness for horses and raises them in Normandy. Green sisters were born with natural dark blond hair, but Eva had her dyed black since she was 15 years old.
Boyfriend, Is She Married?
Eva’s often quiet and reserved acting roles are quite natural for her since in real life the actress is a very reserved and somewhat withdrawn person. This is a personal trait that does not appeal to the media, which constantly interfere in the private lives of celebrities.
Is she married? many of her fans ask themselves. As far as we know, the actress who loves smoky eyes is still unmarried.
Luckily for all of us, Green has once spoken publicly about her love life. In her interview with GARTH PEARCE, Green talked about how she often gives her all when she falls in love, and that relationships require so much hard work, especially in the early stages when the passion wears off.
In the same interview, Eva Green talked about her experiences during the shooting of her 2003 film The Dreamers with her acting colleague Yann Claassen. She told how Claassen became jealous of her when she got a new job, and how she got tired of him talking about his even though she didn’t have one. According to the actress, their relationship lasted only a few years. Green concluded the interview by suggesting that sometimes it is better to be single.
Although Green has not talked about her love life since then, reports appeared that she started in 2005 with her co-star in the Kingdom of Heaven, Marton Csokas, and was together until 2007.
Green’s biggest relationship rumor and perhaps the most shocking is her connection to Tim Burton. She starred in her first Burton movie Dark Shadows in 2012, and the two have remained suspiciously close and were even seen having dinner together. However, sources told W Magazine that Eva is just Burton’s new muse and nothing more. As expected, Green has not commented on the rumors.
Height, Body Measurement
The talented actress stands at a height of 5 feet 7 inches, she weighs 56 kg with body measurements of 34-24-35 inches, the body measurements of 34-24-35 inches being the hips and waist respectively. She has blue eyes and stains a dark blonde hair color.
