Eva Green recalls working with Bernardo Bertolucci

Actor Eva Green has opened up about working with Italian director Bernardo Bertolucci, who died on Monday after a brief battle with cancer.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Green, who was 22 when she starred in Bertolucci’s “The Dreamers”, said she was “desperate to do the part in his movie” and she had one of her “best experiences” while working on the project.

“We used to go to his house every weekend, and Bernardo would tell us stories about the movies he’s made, about music and art in the 1960s. He was so kind and generous and sort of a father figure,” she said.

“I always called him the Little Buddah. There was something very wise about him, with his very naughty, mischievous but kind eyes. I learned so much from him. He was very open to the unexpected, to the spontaneous,” she added.

The 38-year-old actor said her parents were “worried” about her when she signed the film, particularly because of the controversy around the filmmaker’s 1972 feature “Last Tango in Paris”.

“They thought I would be damaged because there were stories about what happened to Maria Schneider on The Last Tango. But I met Bernardo for a few screen tests and I liked his vibe,” Green said.

Schneider, who died in 2011, alleged that she was never consulted regarding a rape scene, which she shot with Marlon Brando. The filmmaker had attracted controversy years later after admitting that the graphic nature of the scene in the erotic drama was improvised on set.

Green said she does not want to undermine “Schneider’s experience” but to her, Bertolucci came across as a “gentleman”.

“… As for my own experience, he was always a gentleman. Very respectful. He knew how nervous I was about the sex scenes but he never pushed me. He just let us do things. There was never anything odd. There are so many worse directors he was just a wonderful person and maestro,” she added.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle name their son : Archie Harrison Mountbatten – Windsor

Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, have named their first child, a son born on Monday, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. The royal couple made the announcement Wednesday via their official Instagram account, ending several days of feverish speculation about the baby name.

The announcement came with a black and white photo showing Queen Elizabeth II meeting her new grandson. The monarch was flanked by her husband Prince Philip, her grandson Prince Harry while at Meghan’s side stood her mother, Doria Ragland. Archie is the eighth great – grandson of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip.

Archie became the 7th in line to the British throne the instant he was born, but he won’t be called “his royal highness,” as the rules around the granting of royal titles were tightened up about 100 years ago.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle introduces their Bundle of Joy to the world

Everyone across the world was waiting for the first pictures of Royal Baby, the first child of Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Introducing the Royal baby, who was wrapped in a white shawl, Meghan said: “He has the sweetest temperament, he’s really calm. He’s been the dream. As they both laughed, Prince Harry said: “I don’t know who he gets that from.”

The couple confirmed they will introduce the Queen to her eighth and newest great-grandchild later on.

Talking about their first few days as parents, Meghan said: “It’s magic, it’s pretty amazing. I have the two best guys in the world so I’m really happy.” The duke added: “It’s great. Parenting is amazing.

“It’s only been two and a half days, three days, but we’re just so thrilled to have our own little bundle of joy.”

On which parent the baby resembled more, Harry said: “Everyone says that babies change so much over two weeks.

“We’re basically monitoring how the changing process happens over this next month really. But his looks are changing every single day, so who knows.” Later, asked to show more of their son’s face to the cameras, Meghan laughed as Harry joked: “He’s already got a little bit of facial hair as well, wonderful.”

Meghan added: “Thank you everybody for all the well-wishes and kindness, it just means so much.”

The infant, who is seventh in line to the throne, was delivered at 05:26 BST on Monday, with Harry saying after the birth that he and Meghan were “absolutely thrilled”.

The Duke of Cambridge has welcomed his brother to “the sleep deprivation society that is parenting”.

Prince William – a father-of-three – said he looked forward to seeing the new parents “when things have quietened down”.

The Prince of Wales has also expressed his joy at the birth.

During an official visit to Germany with the Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Charles said: “We couldn’t be more delighted at the news and we’re looking forward to meeting the baby when we return.”

A statement added that Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, was “overjoyed at the arrival of her first grandchild” and was with her daughter at Frogmore Cottage – the new parents’ home on the Windsor Estate.

Buckingham Palace said Harry was present for the birth, which is understood to have taken place in hospital as opposed to at home.

The baby will not automatically become a prince – although he could get that title if the Queen steps in.

The baby weighed 7lbs 3oz (3.2kg), making him lighter than each of his cousins.

Prince George was 8lb 6oz (3.8kg) when he was born in July 2013. His sister Princess Charlotte was 8lbs 3oz (3.7kg) when she arrived in May 2015, while their younger brother Prince Louis weighed 8lb 7oz (3.8kg) when he was born in April last year.

The average weight of a baby in the UK is about 7lb 7oz (3.4kg).
