While most actresses are squeamish about how far they are willing to go for a role, Eva Green continues to prove that she isn’t afraid to use her entire body to commit to a character. Just as facial expressions help to convey emotion for an actor, Green realized the importance the body can play in helping to portray a character on screen.
Starting off her career through the provocative film, The Dreamers, by Bernardo Bertolucci, Eva Green burst onto the screen with an unapologetic portrayal of the character. Showing full nudity and graphic sex scenes, the film was quickly rated NC-17 and pretty much shunned in movie theaters. While it wasn’t readily available to the general public like other blockbuster films, it was popular enough to catch the eye of just the right people in Hollywood.
Launching her career into television and film, she continued to embrace this free spirit of thought in regard to showing off her body on screen. However, it hasn’t always made things easier for her in the entertainment industry. When Green’s poster was released for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, it was rejected by the MPAA because they felt that it showed too much of the actress underneath the sheer gown. The trailer was actually banned from ABC because they felt the scenes were too racy for TV.
Green actually addressed this back in 2014 in an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, stating, “I don’t really get it. I don’t understand all the fuss.” We think there’s something quite beautiful about a woman that owns her sexuality, and isn’t afraid to show it through artistic expression. Check out our list of the 10 hottest moments on screen with Eva Green, and see if you’ve missed any of her steamiest moments.
Released in 2010, Womb is a semi-futuristic film that deals with human cloning and intense personal relationship dynamics. Eva Green plays the role of Rebecca, a woman that becomes the surrogate mother to a clone. The twist in the storyline is that the clone is Tommy, the love of her life who died tragically in a car accident. She gives birth to Tommy and raises him in a society that is deeply prejudicial against “copies.” He begins to question who his father is, and starts to have mixed feelings about his former self. This leads to a sex scene between Rebecca and Tommy that is confusing to say the least. If you can get past the fact that Tommy is not actually her child and shares no DNA with her, it can pass as the most self-sacrificing thing a person can do for the love of their life.
9 Dark Shadows
Straying from her typical look, Eva Green trades in her ebony hair for a platinum blonde hairstyle. Since fans are so used to seeing her with a darker look, it was almost difficult to recognize her in this Tim Burton film starring alongside Johnny Depp. Yet, she didn’t disappoint with portraying her dark side, since she played the role of an immortal witch that transforms Depp’s character into a vampire. The film is filled with some beautiful shots of Green, but the best involves an almost comical love scene between her character and Barnabas. Mixing a fight scene with a super-steamy sex romp, fans see how good she looks even when she’s out to kill.
8 Perfect Sense
Based on the importance of human senses and the emotional ramifications of their loss, Ewan McGregor and Eva Green play characters that are starting off a romance during the midst of the human race losing all their senses. Before you start thinking about which loss would be the worst, the film delves into how characters would start to treat each other while enduring the frustration of losing the ability to taste, hear, and see. Yet, in order to enunciate the ramifications of these losses, the film must first show just how great the human experience can be. The steamy scenes between these two A-list actors have a romance to it that is a bit refreshing from her raunchier films.
Three years before Eva Green made her television appearance on Penny Dreadful, she played the role of Morgan Pendragon in the 2011 television series, Camelot. First released on the Starz network, the premier episode introduced fans to how the series would go. Starting off with a super steamy scene featuring Eva Green topless, Camelot was more than just a period piece with character conflicts. Morgan played a strong role in the series, plotting to take the crown and using her sexuality to further her plots and schemes. As the daughter to King Uther, Green’s character wasn’t exactly the most likable, but she was definitely worth watching in her sultry performance in Camelot.
Eva Green isn’t new to starring in controversial roles, so when the independent drama, Cracks, went out in search of someone to play its lead character; she was the perfect actress to portray Miss G. As the diving instructor at an elite British boarding school, Miss G. is privy to all the typical clique-style behavior of the young girls. Yet, the obsessive and sexual in nature behavior in this all-girl clique leads to some girl-on-girl action between teacher and student during the film. While it isn’t exactly the best portrayal of Miss G’s character, any scene that involves Eva Green making love to another woman is definitely high on the hot meter.
5 Penny Dreadful
When it was announced that Josh Hartnett was going to be appearing on television, fans wondered what this Pearl Harbor mega star would be doing on a lowly television show. Yet, with the premier of the first season, fans saw the appeal in the show. Playing a werewolf in Victorian London alongside characters like Dorian Gray and Dr. Frankenstein, the show is truly unique to all others on TV. Although there are a number of interesting characters on the show, Eva Green is the main star and is featured in the steamiest moments with each new season. From make-out sessions with Josh Hartnett to full-on nude scenes having sex with a demon, Penny Dreadful makes sure to make the most out of every scene involving Eva Green.
4 Casino Royale
Everyone seems to have their own favorites when it comes to who played the best Bond girl or who played the best Bond. Yet, it’s hard to deny the chemistry that was felt between Eva Green and Daniel Craig for the 2006 film, Casino Royale. There were a few scenes that captured the romance between the pair, but it was the rain scene that led into the bedroom that was truly steamy. Reminiscent of the infamous rain scene from The Notebook, Craig and Green made it look super hot, even if they wound up falling off the bed at the end.
3 Sin City: A Dame To Kill For
Sin City is known for its unique storyline for each character. Revealing the character through the way they are portrayed in the graphic novels, Eva Green was portrayed as the epitome of a true seductress. While the film is filled with numerous different scenes that could make it at the top of the list for sexiest onscreen moments for Green, it is the seduction scene with Josh Brolin that definitely takes the cake. Found completely naked on the bed as he walks in, it’s her response to his refusal that makes the sex scene jump off. Stating, “If you can’t love me… Hate me. If you can’t forgive me… Punish me. Make me hurt, like I’ve hurt you,” Green proved she gets her man, no matter what.
2 300: Rise Of An Empire
When it was announced that Eva Green would be in the sequel to 300, fans knew they would be in for a treat. Taking place at the exact time of the first film, it wasn’t exactly a sequel or prequel. 300: Rise Of An Empire was told from a different perspective, and gave rise to a whole new cast of characters. The sex scene between Eva Green’s character and Sullivan Stapleton’s character is not the typical romance filled love act, but something far more dirty and sinister. Mixing in violence, this sex scene ensures Eva Green’s character doesn’t show submission in any way. Just as her warrior character in the film, the sex scene proves she is a badass throughout the movie.
1 The Dreamers
French-born actress, Eva Green, had her breakout moment during this 2003 film, The Dreamers. Starring alongside Michael Pitt and Louis Garrel, Green seemed fearless in her portrayal as a film enthusiast living in Paris. The incestuous relationship with her brother, graphic nude scenes, and losing her virginity on screen were too much for the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), which ultimately gave it a NC-17 rating. While it wasn’t exactly a box office hit since the rating restriction allowed for limited distribution, enough people saw it to realize a star had been born. As the first of many lead roles in both film and television, this was the film that launched Green’s career, and produced her sexiest moments on screen.
