Eva Green: Just wait for my wild hair!

Eva Green's skin didn't fare well in the harsh Irish winter.

The French actress is playing Miss Peregrine in Tim Burton's Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, which hits cinema screens next year.

Tim is known for his kooky plots and visuals, and Eva's hair will not disappoint.

"The role I'm playing now is quite cool. My hair is kind of bonkers. It's a 40s style with a twist. I also loved my look in another movie I starred in, called Cracks. It's set in the 30s - all high-waisted pants and bobbed hair," she told the British version of Marie Claire.

Eva is used to having her hair styled and her make-up applied on set, and she looks equally as glamorous when she hits the red carpet.

Not all of her projects have been as kind on the 35-year-old's looks though. She's known for her alabaster skin, which looks extra striking next to her raven locks, but while filming hit TV show Penny Dreadful her skin took a bit of a beating.

"Filming in Ireland last winter really took its toll on my skin," she revealed. "I rely on a good, fragrance-free make-up remover from Cetaphil or Avène and apply a cold cream to replenish my skin. I always wear SPF, but find factor 50 is too pale and thick, so I use SkinCeuticals Brightening UV Defense SPF 30. I love Sisley's treatments, too.

"Make-up can be dangerous when you have pale skin - sometimes I can look like Morticia Addams!"
