Former Bond girl Eva Green blamed her “Frenchness” for abusive messages describing film bosses as “weak and stupid” and referring to one as a “f****** inexperienced, pretentious moron.”

The Casino Royale star, 42, was due to play the lead role in sci-fi film A Patriot, but the production collapsed in October 2019.

She is suing production company White Lantern Film, claiming she is entitled to her £810,000 fee for the abandoned project despite its cancellation.
