Eva Green believes John Galliano will make a triumphant return to the fashion world.
The designer was recently found guilty of racist and anti-Semitic behavior and was sacked from Dior and his eponymous label John Galliano but the actress knows we haven't seen the last of him.
Eva - a long-term friend of Galliano's - told vogue.co.uk: "He will make a comeback, I just know it. He is so very talented. He's in the same line as McQueen and Gaultier in that he's very theatrical and dramatic. Human beings are allowed to make mistakes."
Eva - who starred as the face of Christian Dior's Midnight Poison fragrance in 2007 when John was still at the helm - has previously said the sartorialist's actions were very out of character for him.
She said: "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 humor 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.
"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."
