Eva Green wishes designer John Galliano could retract racist remarks

June 8, 2011 - Washington

French actress Eva Green wishes designer John Galliano could go back in time and undo the damage that he caused himself by verbally abusing three people with anti-Semitic and racist insults.

Green, 30, who is friends with the designer, is however not defending his actions, stating that his behaviour was very out of character.

"I haven't spoken to him. It's difficult to talk about this subject, because I don't really know what happened. He is extremely fragile, a very sensitive, creative person with a great sense of humour and he's always been so kind to me. He's very shy. I adore him. It's been very brutal and I really...I just wish he could go back in time and for it not to happen," Contactmusic quoted her as telling The Observer.

"I'm sure he's going to get back [in to fashion] because he's so talented. Sometimes, you can make mistakes. I don't think he's anti-Semitic. I'm Jewish. I don't think he has anything against the Jews. I think it's more that he was probably a bit drunk," she added.

The actress, however, mentioned that the couple who filmed the designer's outbursts should take some responsibility.

She pointed out that "something must have happened to trigger the outburst. I'm very sad. He has to get better. He's very vulnerable."
