Eva Green fears 'brutal' auditions

Eva Green always gets nervous before auditions because casting directors scrutinise everything you do

Eva Green thinks auditions are "brutal".

The 'Quantum of Solace' actress has criticised casting directors for belittling her skills when she tries out for a part.

She told Britain's Independent magazine: "There's always something wrong. They're brutal, it's a jungle. It's as if you're a facade, like a model who can't act."

The 29-year-old actress recently admitted she often "freaks out" when working on a movie because she is so insecure about her abilities.

She said: "When I'm prepping and really working on it, I'm freaking out - that I'm not going to measure up, it's not going to work. That I'm going to look so bland, and I have no idea what the director wants. I freak out completely."

While Eva hates the experience of auditioning, she says she has to like a film as much a producers like her before she will sign up.

She explained: "I've been lucky. But the thing is, I wish I could learn to do work for the sake of it. Sometimes actors do this. They learn from each experience, even if the film was not that great. I can't do that. I feel ill if I can't. I need to love it with my heart."
