Eva is making a name for herself as the absolutely evil — but absolutely sexy — Artemisia in ‘300: Rise Of An Empire.’ So before you watch her steal the big screen, find out everything you need to know about the French beauty!

Amidst the thousands of abs and pectoral muscles you’ll see in 300: Rise of an Empire (in theaters Mar. 7), there’s one beautiful, powerful sight you won’t miss — Eva Green. The French actress absolutely steals the violent action flick as Artemisia, the leader of the Persian fleet in the war against the Greeks. But she’s a whole lot more than just an action goddess.

Eva Green: 5 Things To Know

1. Pain = Beauty

This is how far Eva goes for her movie roles: Rise of an Empire features a particularly violent sex scene, and Eva was totally willing to get down and dirty for it. “I bruise very easily,” she told OTRC.com. “It’s all for art. All that pain for art.”

2. She’s An Older Sister… Barely

Eva was born just two minutes before her twin sister, Joy, on July 5, 1980.

3. She’s A Self-Confessed Nerd

Though Eva is incredibly hot and powerful on the big screen, the actress actually considers herself a bit of an introvert. And she’s not much for dating — instead, she calls her Border Terrier her “husband,” according to The Age.

4. She’s Put That Gorgeous Face To Work

Eva has also paid the bills by modeling for a slew of high-end brands. The sexy star has been the face of Heineken, Emporio Armani, Lancome, and Christian Dior.

5. But Mostly, She’s A Total Badass

All you need to do is look at Eva’s movie roles to see that she’s a girl who prefers to dominate the boys rather than date them. Before stealing Rise of an Empire, Eva played the mysterious femme fatale Vesper Lynd in the James Bond film Casino Royale, and she’s also starred as a brutal heroine on the Starz series Camelot.

Is Eva your new Hollywood crush? Because she’s definitely ours.
