Marion Cotillard – a sweetheart and a speleologist

I’m still working hard behind the scenes to give you the rest of the picture & video coverage of Marion Cotillard at the Bafta and London Film Critics Circle awards last week. In the meantime, enjoy a lovely interview over at Access Hollywood, recorded after the Oscar Luncheon.

[edit] The previously announced AMC Shootout interview is out: Watch the 2 parts: The Oscar Journey and Energy Creates Voice. Tune in February 15, 10.30pm for the full Oscar Nominee Special. [/edit]

Irish newspaper Rté calls Marion a sweetheart:

Marion Cotillard – a sweetheart, as bouncingly enthusiastic on the red carpet as she was during her acceptance speech later in the evening – and genuinely shocked to be there at all.

I added the article from this month’s Men’s Vogue to the press archive (scans coming soon):

I use the music. It helps me to go into certain emotions. But I don’t use my job as therapy. I feel more like an anthropologist of the inside of the human being, a speleologist!

Ever wondered where Marion’s fantastic red carpet style comes from? People asked her about it: “My French publicist, who is one of my best friends. He does all that stuff!”

Another article I’ve come across mentions Canadian musician Hawksley Workman (recently?) having spent “some time in Los Angeles working and writing songs with Golden Globe winning actress Marion Cotillard”. Let’s stay tuned for more info on that! It certainly sounds intriguing!

To finish this post a TV alert for our French friends: Remember to mark Wednesday, March 14 in your diaries! Canal + will be dedicating that evening to Marion Cotillard. After airing La Môme you’ll be able to enjoy a documentary by Bastien Duval called “Mon clown”. As of 11.10pm on March 14 you’ll be able to follow Marion around the world on her year-long promotion tour for La Vie en Rose! (source)
