The 100 Most Beautiful Faces

The Annual Independent Critics List released their updated list of The 100 Most Beautiful Faces in the year 2008. As last year Marion Cotillard occupies the fantastic spot #4 in her 7th year on the list. Obviously beauty lies in the eye of the beholder – and of course we would have placed her at the beginning of the list – but it’s great that also others are recognizing her beauty.

A natural beauty who won an Academy Award in “La Vie En Rose”… It was one of the greatest acting performances ever given on screen.

About the list:

The Annual Independent Critics List is Compiled by a Select Group of Up To 25 Invited Judges.
It Has Been Published on the Internet, on Various Websites, Every Year Since 1995.
This list is only about beautiful celebrity faces.
▪ It is not based on the “sexiest”, “hottest” or “best body”.
▪ You may discover some relatively unfamiliar faces.
▪ It is certainly not based purely on public popularity.
▪ This is not your standard Maxim or FHM or People list.
▪ There will probably be a few big name exclusions.
▪ Over 50 countries are represented in the Top 100 and the Runners-Up list.

Natalie Portman, Rachel Weisz and Kate Beckinsale made the first 3 places this year.

Marion as Billie

The first pictures of Marion Cotillard as Billie Frechette have surfaced. Thanks everyone who pointed them out to me. First, there are some pictures of Marion doing a scene at night on Diginux‘s blog. Then someone posted some absolutely gorgeous pictures on The Fashion Spot Forum. I’ve added those to the gallery but am not sure who deserves to be credited for them. If anyone has any info (or also additional pictures hehe) don’t hesitate to get in touch.

‘Public Enemies’ status

Public Enemies – starring none other than Johnny Depp and currently filming in the US mid west – continues to attract great acting talents. Apparently, Billy Crudup – who played Marion’s husband in Big Fish – joined the cast to play former FBI director J. Edgar Hoover.

Back when the set was in Columbus this blog used to be a great source of news & updates reporting straight from where it was all happening and the blog continues to bring us all the latest info on what’s happening on the film’s set. Check out other links provided by JV in the comments section of a previous post here on this site. There was no mention of Marion Cotillard apart from an IMDB user reporting she did some interior scenes in a mansion with Johnny on the Thursday before the Easter weekend and claiming she didn’t come out the greet the crowds because she was cold from having been scantily dressed all day during shooting. Also a French gossip site reported that Marion then was able to take a few days off (probably over the Easter weekend) to come home to Paris, where she was spotted at a concert.

There are many comments about the making of the film, about Johnny Depp and also about the story behind the film – the true story of Dillinger – but finding information about Marion’s current involvement proves to be a bit more difficult. So if you come across any additional information don’t hesitate to comment here on the site to let us all know about it!
