Shy Star Eva Green

Eva Green Marlene Jobert

Eva Green lacks self-confidence away from the camera.

The 'Casino Royale' actress often plays strong on-screen roles, but says this is a marked deviation from her real life character.

She explained: ''I'm not confident in real life. I'm drawn to play characters who aren't like me because sometimes they're the people I wish I could be in real life.

Eva Green's Mother Appalled By Acting

Eva Green Marlene Jobert Marton Csokas

Eva Green's mother is "appalled" by her profession.

The 30-year-old star's mum Marlene Jobert is also an actress but she thinks her daughter has entered a "terrible" profession and can't understand why the 'Casino Royale' beauty gets stressed when looking for work.

Asked if she asks her mum for advice, Eva said: "No, she's kind of appalled by what I do. Sometimes I get so worried [about a part] she'll say, 'Don't stress,' but there was less competition in her day. She'll discuss a role and we run through lines. She thinks acting is a terrible business and it's true that it's hard to depend on the judgment of other people all the time. You have to not take it personally, to be strong."

Green Hid Love Of Acting From Mother

Bond Eva Green Marlene Jobert Vesper Lynd Casino Royale

New Bond girl Eva Green hid her acting dream from her mother Marlene Jobert, because she was scared she wouldn't measure up to the French actress. But the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN star, who plays leading lady Vesper Lynd in the new 007 thriller Casino Royale, overcame her fear when she realised that acting would stretch her in a way nothing else could. She says, "(My mother) thinks acting is a cruel profession. And for years, I wouldn't even acknowledge to myself that I wanted to be an actress. I was afraid of measuring up. "But acting is a way of going beyond myself - you know, I have blood in my veins when I am someone else."

Masculine Feminine Review

By 1966, Jean-Luc Godard was the New Wave's premier prankster-ideologue and pop-culture deconstructionist. After sharpening his teeth on Contempt, Band of Outsiders, and Alphaville among a coruscating burst of titles that began with 1960's Breathless, Godard rapidly found his voice in the form of the guerilla-style cinema manifesto. Masculine Feminine, about the dysfunctional romance between a young would-be militant and a budding pop star whose blithe pursuit of fame represents everything he hates about capitalism, comes together in a series of 15 loosely-connected vignettes--or "precise chapters" as Godard calls them. Intertitles, often accompanied by gunshots, read like politically-charged maxims and divide these "chapters" and lend the movie an aura of immediacy at once jarring and hilarious, because they raise what is, at heart, the story of a doomed romance into the realm of Marxist allegory. That sounds incredibly pretentious, but this is Godard -- an artist with a knack for exposing intellectual pretense for the vain tomfoolery that it is, and where the most intimate exchanges are booby-trapped by self-parody and non-sequiturs. In Godard's world, human relationships are negotiations for political power and fertile ground for his brand of deadpan formal antics.

Plot-wise, this is refreshingly simple stuff. Paul (Jean-Pierre Léaud), a spray can-toting socialist in 1960s Paris, spends his time rallying against all things American, when he falls head-over-heals for Madeleine (played by real-life yé yé singer Chantal Goya), a pretty but clueless brunette on the verge of commercial breakthrough (she's already burning up the charts in Japan). Broke and evicted, Paul moves in with Madeleine and her roommates, Elizabeth and Catherine (Marléne Jobert and Catherine-Isabelle Duport), where he continues his attempts to reconcile his disapproval of Madeleine's money-driven dreams with his deep-seated hankering to get it on with her.
