Who:  Eva Green from the Vampire Horror-Comedy movie remake "Dark Shadows" is our hottie for the month of May. Eva is a French model and actress with a Jewish, Algerian and Sweedish ancestry background. She is a natural blonde but started dying her hair black since she was in her teens. Eva grew up in the 17th Arrondissement in Paris and attended the American School of Paris. She has some very famous family members among them, her mother, Marlene Jobert who is a well accomplished French actress, and her aunt Marika Green, also an actress. Eva grew up without religion, she sees herself as a worldly personality as cinema crosses barriers, crosses frontiers. She had some film training in New York's Tisch School of the Arts and performed in multiple box office movies such as Bertolucci's The Dreamers for which both her parents and agents were skeptical on what effect this movie's graphic sexual scenes will do to her growing career but she went on with it, as she continue to  transform on screen by her daring role choices. She said it herself, she loves to play these dark personas as they help her deal with her every day emotions. She has a profound interest in Egyptology and also has a sororal sister whom she feels very different from.

Why: She is a vision, a French vision whom prefers to portray complex, dark characters on screen!

Born: Eva Gaelle Green, in Paris, France, on July 5, 1980
