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.
