Marion Cotillard: Best of 2008

I can’t believe it’s already 2009! I hope you have all had a fabulous time with your loved ones during the holiday season and have started well into the new year!

Looking back, I think it’s safe to say 2008 has been THE year for our favourite actress Marion Cotillard! Winning Best Actress awards at the Golden Globes, the BAFTAs, the Césars and even at the Oscars for her performance in La Vie en Rose cemented her status as an exraordinary talented actress across the globe. There were also awards handed out to her at the Santa Barbara Film Festival, Palm Springs Film Festival as well as London Critics Circle Award. Immediately after writing history when she received the first ever Best Actress Oscar trophy for a performance entirely in the French language Marion Cotillard immersed herself in work. She was busy perfecting her American accent to play Johnny Depp’s John Dillinger’s girlfriend Billie in Michael Mann’s Public Enemies. After a much deserved break during summer it wasn’t long before she joined Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz, Fergie and Daniel Day-Lewis in a dance/drama boot camp for Rob Marshall’s upcoming musical Nine. She spent the final months of the year on set of the musical. Amidst all of that she somehow found time to record a song (The Strong Ones for LOVE Cartier) and pose for the new Lady Dior campaign in front of Peter Lindbergh’s camera.

Favourite magazine cover:

It’s just perfect! I couldn’t take my eyes off the magazine when I first saw it.
