While the hype so far doesn't even compare to the original, 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE is probably the biggest movie being released this weekend. Even with the less-than-adequate reviews, fanboys are still likely to show up for the CGI gore and the possibility of some gatuitous nudity. After all, it does feature two very beautiful actresses, Lena Headey and Eva Green. Since we already put Headey to the test last August, let's go ahead and study the student body of Eva, shall we?
When CASINO ROYALE first came out, I wasn't in the same boat of guys who thought Eva was mind-numbingly gorgeous at first sight (I also thought Daniel Craig looked like a monkey-person). However, as is the case with most modern Bond vixens, Eva has grown on me over time. There's no doubt she has some beneficial qualities above the shoulders, such as blue eyes that pierce your soul and freckles that only come out once every full moon.
In RISE OF AN EMPIRE, Eva is supposed to playing Artemisia, a twisted, heartless queen who sides with Xerxes during the Greco-Persian wars. However, if you ask me, the only thing twisted and heartless about Eva is that she doesn't walk around with her buttocks exposed all the time, like in the photo below. Seriously, what gives, Eva?
It's tough to find any complaints Eva's bewbs, considering the number of times she's made them visually available to the public. Even if that weren't the case, her talents in this subject are beyond underrated in the world of hotties. Those babies can get a preserved vampire's blood pumping again, and yes, I did just make a reference to the clusterf*ck of ideas that was Tim Burton's DARK SHADOWS.
Eva is obviously in great shape, so your outlook may depend on just how skinny you like your hotties. It may also depend how much you enjoy legs, in which case, Eva is definitely the hottie for you. The last time I saw stems like these attached to a Green was on my recent trip to Colorado. Any Rastafarians in the house?
Eva may be known for featured roles in huge-budget Hollywood movies, but she worked her beautiful ass off to get there. She studied acting basically all her life, and was considered for roles in THE BLACK DAHLIA and THE CONSTANT GARDENER before she went on to catch her break in CASINO ROYALE. Since then, she's been seen in THE GOLDEN COMPASS, DARK SHADOWS, the Starz series "Camelot", and the upcoming SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR. But if you really want to see Eva put all of her talents on display, and I do mean all of them, you should check out her first motion picture, THE DREAMERS. Thank me later.
As an actress, Eva really seems to find joy in putting herself in her characters' shoes, and sees it as just that. Now that "awards season" has finally wrapped up, it's nice to know there are some actors out there who simply enjoy acting for what it is, instead of putting themselves on some kind of unwarranted pedestal. As a person, Eva's pretty much your average, fun-having, hardworking foxy lady. For further evidence of this, check out our exclusive 1:1 interview with Eva right here.
