Eva Green

November 24, 2008

Eva Green left her childhood home in Paris’s Île Saint-Louis for London after she starred in The Dreamers, in 2003. In the five years since, the 28-year-old has been living out the fantasies of young women everywhere: Onscreen she’s been a Bond girl, Orlando Bloom’s love interest, and a witch. What sets Green apart in the land of beautiful actresses is the detached, I’m-too-smart-for-my-own-good persona she has cultivated.
