Eva Green still wants to be “desired”.
The ‘Proxima’ actress turned 40 this summer and worried about the impact it would have on her career as she has already been dismissed for being “too old” for some parts and she doesn’t expect to be embracing her wrinkles when they develop.
She said: “Lots of women say, ‘I found myself, I feel much better than when I was 20.’
“But I still want to be desired – not one woman wants to age. I’ve heard already that I’m too old for some roles, so I don’t want to be a liar, going, ‘Oh, it’s so great.’
“Those people who say, ‘I like my wrinkles, it’s my inner beauty’ – no!”
Eva would have a “tiny” amount of cosmetic surgery to counteract the signs of ageing but would be wary of taking things too far.
Asked if she’d have surgery, she said: “Oh, no. I saw a woman yesterday who had so much done, she looked like an alien. I think it’s an addiction.
“Maybe a tiny thing? But if the surgeon has had work done and looks weird, don’t do it!”
The ‘Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children’ star hates seeing herself on screen.
She said: “I want to projectile-vomit. I can’t watch.”
And Eva detests having to get dressed up for red carpet events because she’d rather just be comfortable.
She said in an interview: “My mother would tell you – I should know how to do my hair, to make an effort. I ought to wear more colours, to be more of a woman, but I like comfort too much.
“High heels just feel really anti-feminist to me, we’re like birds on stilts.”
