Marion Cotillard is still visibly shaken when she recalls the moment she first heard about the Aurora shootings.

The date was July 20, 2012, and what was meant to be a career high for the Oscar-winner — starring in a new, Christopher Nolan-directed Batman epic — was instantly overshadowed by unthinkable tragedy, as news quickly spread that a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises in Colorado left 12 moviegoers dead at the hands of a crazed shooter.

Those wounds have barely begun to heal as the country now copes with an even more unbelievable and senseless horror: the murder of 26 people, 20 of them young children, at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.

The Hollywood Reporter asked Cotillard about her thoughts on the Colorado shooting in a conversation with the actress last month.

“I’ve never felt good about guns. Especially when it’s out of control,” the Rust and Bone star told THR.

“Sadly, I guess, it’s in America’s culture,” Cotillard continued. “And I believe it’s going to be hard to change that because some people can’t be secure without it. It’s creating at the same time this insecurity. It’s a vicious circle.”

Cotillard is currently shooting Blood Ties, directed by her partner and father of her one-year-old son, French movie star Guillaume Canet. The film is set in the world of organized crime in 1970s Brooklyn.
