Being born to the famous French actress, Marlène Jobert, Green shares what womanhood has faced her with in a new exclusive interview with  Town & Country magazine. 

“My mother would tell you – I should know how to do my hair, to make an effort. I ought to wear more colours, to be more of a woman, but I like comfort too much. High heels just feel really anti-feminist to me, we’re like birds on stilts,” Green, who turns 40 this year, recalls.

Speaking on her age, the actress shares the difficulties aging as an actress poses on her career.

"I’ve heard already that I’m too old for some roles, so I don’t want to be a liar, going, ‘Oh, it’s so great.’ Those people who say, ‘I like my wrinkles, it’s my inner beauty’ – no!” she said.

Initially, the actress was against the idea of following in her mother's footsteps, and despite fighting off the inevitable, ended up at a drama school. 

"I really liked it, though I didn’t want to admit it to myself," she shares. Landing successful roles for 15 years, Green has moved to a cozy London home, in which she feels most like herself.

I feel very calm here," she says. 

Her hopes for the future include buying a farm in either Wales or Ireland, and studying permaculture.

"I’m taking agriculture courses online – I want to learn about permaculture. It’s very interesting, very ecological – they should teach it in school," she confided.

Until that happens, Green is content with her London life, and appears in a new series, The Luminaries, beginning on May 17.
