Eva Gaëlle Green born 5 July 1980) is a French actress. Green started her career in theatre before making her film debut in 2003 in Bernardo Bertolucci‘s controversial film The Dreamers. Green achieved international recognition when she appeared in Ridley Scott‘sKingdom of Heaven (2005), and portrayed Vesper Lynd in the James Bond film Casino Royale (2006). In 2006, Green was awarded the BAFTA Rising Star Award. Since 2006, Green has starred in independent films Womb (2010), Perfect Sense (2011), and Cracks (2011).

In 2007, Green was voted the 6th sexiest movie star of all-time by Empire magazine. Empire also listed her character, Vesper Lynd as the 9th sexiest female character in cinema history. In 2011, Los Angeles Times Magazine listed Green at No. 18 for their 50 most beautiful women in film. In 2012 she was listed no.57 in AfterEllen Hot 100. In April 2012, Shalom Life ranked her Number 2 on its list of “the 50 most talented, intelligent, funny, and gorgeous Jewish women in the world”

Green considers herself nerdy: “When people first meet me, they find me very cold. I keep myself at a distance, and I think that’s why I’m so drawn to acting. It allows me to wear a mask”. She lives alone and, by her own account, leads a low-key life when she’s not working. When asked in an interview what would people be surprised to find out about her, she responded “I guess people would be surprised to find out that I am a bit of a homebody. I do not like clubbing or going to wild parties. After a day of shooting, I love to come home and relax by the fire with a glass of wine and a good book. Boring, huh?”

Eva is our #WCW because she is beautiful, smart and sexy, wrapped in a super bad-ass actresses. She plays these wonderful female roles where she has as much power as the men in the film. She is willing to express herself physical and spirtually in each role. Plus, she doesn’t mind nudity because she has so much confindence in herself. That’s the sexist thing I believe in women if they can be confident about themselves. Eva Green has plenty of confidence in herself which you can see her swagger. You can check her new show Penny Dreadful on Showtime every Sunday night.

    How fortuitous that you chanced upon my blog, giving me the opportunity to find yours. This post on Eva Green is wonderful; she could be a possible contender for a role in the film my former employer would like to have made from his book, Aaron’s Journey: From Slave to Master, about his parents’ lives as Jews in WWII Europe. Thank you!

  12. Thank you for the follow! I’m a big Eva fan as well. Very talented and stunning.

  13. hoojewale says:

    Eva is quite beautiful. She’s no doubt a good actress but I won’t buy the idea of her intended nude act, because one day she’ll probably have to explain to somebody or much more importantly, to God, in the heavenly assizes!

  14. musikguru says:

    There is a great beauty tha lies within that no one may ever see. I knew a homely lady but her voice with like an angel. A modest lady gets many more gentlemen. One day I wore jeans and other day I wore a long modest dress. I had so many guys open the door for me when I wore the dress. When you do not dress modest what are we asking for? There is so much respect in modesty. Just food for thought. Thanks for following my flog. Life is a journey: ups and downs.

  24. Sparkyjen says:
