French TV channel TF1 used Marion Cotillard’s first public appearance in her home country since the Cannes Film Festival in May for a report during 50mn inside about her status as a star and actress, analyzing her choices such as taking a break from acting while showing footage of various events from this and past years. They pointed out that promoting Rust and Bone publicly and on talk shows could well lead to a new Oscar nomination. Furthermore, they discussed her collaboration with Dior. All in all, they said Marion Cotillard does what she wants – she’s thus an actrice libre – a free actress. Thanks to Luise for the clip!
By the way, gossip column Page Six from the New York Post reports that Marion, while making it to Thursday’s Rust and Bone screening in New York, was also delayed because of the snow storm. So she spent Wednesday night in a hotel in Detroit. I hope her lost luggage has since turned up.
