Green was born two minutes earlier than her fraternal twin sister, Joy. She is the daughter of Marlène Jobert, an actress, and Walter Green, a dentist. Her father has acted in film, appearing in Robert Bresson's film Au Hasard Balthazar. Her father is of Swedish, French, and Breton descent, and through him she is the great-granddaughter of the French Breton composer Paul Le Flem. Her mother, a native of French Algeria, later moved to Metropolitan France. Green is Jewish, as is her mother (of Sephardic Jewish heritage). Green has described herself as “a secular Jew who never attended synagogue as a girl”; she has said "I feel like a citizen of the world. Life and cinema don't have borders. " Green has described her family as "bourgeois", and has said that her sister is very different from her. Green is naturally dark blonde; she has dyed her hair black since she was 15 years old. The French-Swedish actress Marika Green is her aunt. The 1980s pop-star Elsa Lunghini is her first cousin, through their mothers, as is actress Joséphine Jobert, through her father and Green's mother.
“I don’t want to be the woman in the script where it goes, ‘There’s a beautiful, mysterious woman …’ Just, OK, forget it. I think I would feel unhappy … Some people play it very well but I want to be as equal as a man, you know what I mean?”
