Recent Public Appearances

We did not get the usual Golden Globes picture & video galore – for obvious reasons – but I could not resist adding 2 pictures of the screen & a video from the moment when Marion Cotillard’s name was read at the Press Conference. I also took the time to update the gallery with Marion’s other recent public appearances – as well as 3 exciting videos. Many thanks Mariana and Sara Amelia for your help with some of the pictures!

As for the request for the VH1 red carpet interview: see screencaptures over at Marion Cotillard’s Road to Oscar and if you’re in the States (which I’m not 🙁 ) watch the video here. You’re still very welcome to send in a proper file of that interview as well as the Craig Ferguson talk show appearance and in fact any other interview/video with Marion you might come across. Myself and the rest of the site’s visitors will definitely be very grateful!

If you encounter some difficulties with the site it is probably due to the massive increase of new visitors! I truly hope the site won’t crash! Thank you for your patience already.

Golden Globe’s Best Actress Marion Cotillard: ‘It Was Like Fireworks’

from FOX News / by Roger Friedman

What was Marion Cotillard doing when she won the Golden Globe for Best Actress Sunday night? She was lying on the ground in her Beverly Hills hotel room watching TV while her friends were sitting in chairs.

“We didn’t expect the Best Actress to come up so fast,” the adorable 32-year-old French actress told me after the show at a dinner thrown for her by Picturehouse at the Chateau Marmont.

“Suddenly they were all jumping up and down screaming and I was lying there watching them,” Cotillard said. “They looked like fireworks.”

Her face glowed at the memory.

Within 30 seconds she got a call from her brother — one in a pair of twins — who lives in San Francisco.

“He was very excited,” Cotillard said.

Her parents in Paris, however, do not know what the Golden Globes are.

“They know the Oscars,” she said. “But they are serious theater actors. My father won the Moliere Award a couple of years ago. If I said Golden Globes, they would say, that’s nice.”

Cotillard had a dress being made by Nina Ricci for the Globes show, but told the designer not to hurry once the Globes were cancelled. Now it will be used for the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Jan. 28.

Meanwhile, we wondered why the much older character actor Harry Dean Stanton was one of her dinner guests, as was Matt Dillon. Were American actors hitting on her like crazy these days?

“No,” she laughed, as she drank a glass of Champagne. “I am very lucky with my man right now.” Her boyfriend is French. Stanton is simply one of her idols. Dillon came as the guest of another guest. Later, Tim Robbins stopped by after rehearsing a theater workshop. He’s another new friend.

But then it was well past midnight, and Harry Dean Stanton was volunteering to play the piano in the hotel lobby. What else can we find out about Marion Cotillard before she wins the Oscar, and becomes the biggest French actress in America since Juliette Binoche?

“My nickname is Yonks,” she said gleefully. “It’s spelled Ionx,” she explained. “My best friend calls me that. Sometimes she says ‘Yo, Yonks.'”
