Now the 28 year-old has attained her first major Hollywood role as "perfect 10" Molly McCall in the comedy She's Out Of My League. Eve explained for us how she got the part.
"Well, I mean, you probably have to audition like I did and I very happily won the part, which was a nice surprise, Alice recalls, "I think it depends on the situation, the director, the studio, what they want. I was doing a play on Broadway at the time, we had a show on a Sunday afternoon, and I flew out early Monday morning, did the meeting, then flew back, did the show on Tuesday. I guess you have to be there, but sometimes, you can tape from England to get the job.
What sets apart Molly McCall from other Hollywood dream girl characters is that she's not just a pretty face, but a smart and sweet girl.
"I think that's what makes her the 10, she's all the things that make a good person, Alice Eve says of it, "I think for it to be taken away that she's just a perfect 10 aesthetically would be missing the whole point of the movie, the 10 is the complete human being. [It's] incredibly rare, it was great. I thought the paradigm of this role was more of a male lead, she had the money, the power, the desire.
