CEL­E­BRATE HAPPY HOUR WITH EVA GREEN Learn the se­crets to a glit­ter­ing hol­i­day sea­son, straight from the celebs them­selves.

She played the Bond Girl who in­spired the phrase “Shaken not stirred,” but in re­al­ity, Eva Green is aw­ful at cock­tail par­ties. “I’m kind of the ugly duck­ling in the cor­ner,” con­fesses the French ac­tress. “I mean, I like cock­tails, but I don’t like the chit-chat!”

In­stead of hid­ing be­hind a pot­ted plant, the 34-year-old would rather be at home with close friends—or sip­ping spir­its with fa­mous French writ­ers. “I think it would have been ro­man­tic to drink ab­sinthe with Rim­baud,” she says with a laugh. “We could have read po­etry at the same time!”

Green ad­mits to­tal ig­no­rance when it comes to mix­ing drinks, de­spite be­ing the muse for the play­ful 2015 Cam­pari cal­en­dar. But this is the year she’s up­ping her party game. “When I did the shoot, I re­ally dis­cov­ered the art of clas­sic cock­tails,” says Green. “I ac­tu­ally just bought a book on how to get started. I’m learn­ing!”

And what might she whip up for friends over the hol­i­days? “The Ne­groni, be­cause it re­minds me of my mom.”
