Chopard Lunch at Cannes & Dior Cruise Collection show
As the Cannes Film Festival unfolds, Marion Cotillard has made her first appearance at the event. On Friday she attended the Chopard Lunch and posed alongside Fan Bingbing, Livia Firth, Colin Firth, and Laura Baily. The lunch promoted a partnership between Chopard and the Alliance for Responsible Mining for a closer relationship between luxury and sustainability. Marion looked cool and summery in a Vivienne Westwood dress and Jimmy Choo tan sandals. She completed the look with a Chopard ring.
The next day, Marion was spotted at the Dior Cruise Collection 2014 show held in Monaco, wearing a Raff Simons design.
Marion’s movies Blood Ties (Guillaume Canet) and The Immigrant (James Gray) will be screened at Cannes on the 20th and 25th of May, respectively, so we should expect to see her throughout this week!

Marion being considered for John Wells-directed “Chef”
Cannes: Bradley Cooper Commits To ‘Chef’ As Cease And Desist Goes To Jon Favreau’s Rival Chef Pic
Bradley Cooper has now formally confirmed to star in the John Wells-directed Chef, making this one of the early projects stirring action from foreign buyers who can now visualize the Silver Linings Playbook star back in meltdown mode in this Shampoo-like drama. He plays a Paris chef named Adam Jones, who destroys his wunderkind status in a blaze of decadence and out of control behavior. He cleans up and returns to Paris sober, determined to redeem himself by spearheading a top restaurant that can gain three Michelin stars. This has been in the works a bit, and recently Cooper saw Wells’ upcoming TWC Oscar-bait movie August: Osage County and then TWC set Wells to direct Chef. They are now looking to round out that cast, and I’m hearing Michelle Williams and Marion Cotillard as potential female leads, and Omar Sy for co-starring role. The film’s produced by Stacey Sher, Erwin Stoff and Michael Shamberg.
Marion Cotillard Stars in David Bowie’s music video ‘The Next Day’
Marion Cotillard and her ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘ co-star Gary Oldman star in David Bowie’s new music video ‘The Next Day‘, the title track of his latest album. The clip was written and conceived by David Bowie himself and directed by Floria Sigismondi.
The video shows Gary Oldman in priest’s garb punching a beggar on his way into a brothel-looking club. Inside, in one corner, a man whips his bloody back. In another scene, a cardinal passes out cash to scantily clad dancers. A woman with a veil drawn over her face has a platter with two eyeballs staring up from it. There’s also a praying nun. Gary Oldman’s priest joins other priests dirty dancing with prostitutes. Marion Cotillard and her scantily clad colleagues go along with the priests’ requests with looks of complete disinterest. All the while David Bowie sings in a monk’s robe – or some say he’s dressed up as Jesus – from the corner of the room and seems to condemn Oldman’s actions. Cotillard swivels seductively, only to collapse with blood pouring from her stigmata wounds before rising again like a saint.
YouTube temporarily pulled the clip hours after its release yesterday because it violated the site’s Terms of Service (probably due to graphic religious imagery and gore) but re-instated it 2 hours later with an adult-only rating for its graphic content. A spokesperson told Billboard via email that it was taken down by mistake. “With the massive volume of videos on our site, sometimes we make the wrong call. When it’s brought to our attention that a video has been removed mistakenly, we act quickly to reinstate it.”
Marion Cotillard is a fan of David Bowie. She previously performed the David Bowie song ‘Velvet Goldmine’ as a duo with Yodelice on the French TV Show Taratata back in November 2010. On the same show she chose David Bowie for her personal Taratata show – “because he’s a real genius and there’s really no need to say more about him.”

‘The Immigrant’ & ‘Blood Ties’ Premiering at Cannes
When the line-up for this year’s Cannes Film Festival was unveiled a while ago, Marion Cotillard’s two upcoming movies were both on it!
‘The Immigrant‘ by James Gray – formerly ‘Lowlife‘ or ‘Nightingale‘ – is part of the Official Selection and ‘Blood Ties‘ by Guillaume Canet (and co-written by James Gray) will be shown Out of Competition.
I added new HQ stills for both movies (‘The Immigrant‘ stills are replacing existing low quality stills).

Lady Dior Web Documentary – Episode 7: Lady for a Day
Finally! The 7th and last video from the Lady Dior Web Documentary series by Eliott Bliss with music by Yodelice was put online on LadyDior.com earlier tonight! It focuses on the day when Harvard honoured Marion Cotillard as Woman of the Year earlier this year (pictures) – there’s the video of her ‘how to act dying’ – but also quickly shows many outtakes from the previous episodes. I tried to capture them all so you can enjoy these fun photographs! And there are 2 bonus videos as well.
Over the course of the episodes, we’ve followed her all throughout her exciting and sparkling world, from the red carpets of Hollywood to the ateliers of Avenue Montaigne. In this final installment in the saga, Marion Cotillard invites us to Harvard University in the United States where she’s being awarded “Woman of the Year”. A woman in Dior, naturally.

Lady Dior Web Documentary – Episode 6: Epilogue
I have no idea why I never updated about this – the screencaptures have been in the gallery for ages – but in January the 6th video of the Lady Dior Webdocumentary was released. It showed Marion Cotillard in Los Angeles promoting ‘Rust and Bone‘ during telephone interviews and at premieres as well as attending the Printemps Haussmann Christmas Illuminations Launch in Paris.
From the red carpets of Hollywood to the unveiling of the window displays at the Printemps store in Paris, follow the hectic and extraordinary life of Marion Cotillard. Ever beautiful, ever passionate, forever Dior.

Pierre Rabhi – Les Clés du paradigme…
Earlier tonight the Pierre Rabhi documentary aired on France 5. Towards the end we could see Marion Cotillard travel across France to his base in beautiful rural Ardèche for a philosophical discussion. Among other things Marion Cotillard mentioned that when thinking about humility recently she thought that maybe humility means being part of something that you won’t see the result of (such as saving this planet).
I added some captures that I was able to take with my phone. Watch the full video on France 5′s replay site if you’re in France or Marion’s bit on YouTube.
