In recent times I have not found as much joy in maintaining websites as I used to. Also I have many other important things I don’t want to neglect in real life. So after careful & long consideration I realized that saying goodbye to the world of fansites is the only way forward. Sadly, this means that I will also say goodbye to this website here. However, I am still a great admirer of Marion Cotillard. She’s an exceptional actress and I love her career and her choices. It’s really rare that you get talents, beauty and humanity all in one person – and that the person then also gets the opportunity to showcase this to the world like Marion. This together with the fact that I’ve invested a lot of time and energy into Magnifique Marion Cotillard means that I’d hate to see it deleted, merged or continued in a different spirit.
So I’m happy to tell you that Jess is the new owner of the site and while she too is very busy she’ll make sure that the site stays active and that the important news regarding Marion Cotillard’s career will be posted – as she has done already this month. In addition, Luise who has looked after the site in the past when I was away will also help out from time to time with posting the important news.
And once I have some more free time – but hopefully not in the too distant future – I will add the missing portrait sessions & magazine scans.
While the release of the US ‘Midnight in Paris‘ Blu-ray is still more than a week away the French one has been available since October. Finally, I added some gorgeous Blu-ray screencaptures to the gallery. Enjoy!

A while ago, on October 23, Marion Cotillard attended a premiere screening and photocall in Paris for ‘Contagion‘. Here are some pictures:

Over the last few weeks as well as today I added some scans and interview transcripts with Marion Cotillard from recent 2011 publications. I also added proper scans of the feature in last May’s L’Express Styles – many thanks melfan from Jemima West Fan for sending me the magazine! Here’s an overview:
• Beautiful Muse, Delta Sky Magazine, June
• La fille en Rose, Eurostar Metropolitan Magazine, June
• Shooting ‘Contagion’ while pregnant ‘affected me’, USA Today, September 9
• Portrait : Marion Cotillard, the directors’ muse, French Cinema London, October 6
• L.A. Confidentiel, Madame Figaro, November 5
007 L’Express Styles (France) – May 11
005 Delta Sky (US) – June
008 Eurostar Metropolitan (UK/France) – June
007 Madame Figaro (France) – November 5
Kindly do not redistribute the magazine scans at another Marion Cotillard fan site as they were scanned exclusively for ‘Magnifique Marion Cotillard’. Thank you.
Dior have also uploaded the actual Making Of both the print campaign by Steven Klein and the short film by John Cameron Mitchell. We learn that it is the first comedy in the series of Dior short films and that it is inspired by this 1973 short film by Richard Avedon and starring Lauren Hutton. I can’t wait to see the full L.A.dy Dior short film on December 13!
