Eva Green Interview – Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children – “I wanted to blend in with the wall, I wanted to be invisible”
Eva Green is that strange contradiction – a hugely successful French actress who rarely stars in French film. The 36 year-old scratches her chin as she ponders the statement.
Q: You’re intimidated by people in general? Surely it’s the other way around?
GREEN: Oh no [laughs]. No, I think perhaps intimidated by the characters I play, this powerful, ballsy women but never by me. I’m very introverted, have been since I was a school girl, gripping the walls in fear that anyone would notice. I wanted to blend in with the wall, I wanted to be invisible. I wanted no one to look at me. If anyone did, if the teacher asked me to read something out, I would sweat and shake with fear.
