On the Cover of Madame Figaro – Cannes Issue
Just ahead of the opening of the Cannes Film Festival – and the world premiere of ‘Midnight in Paris‘ – next Wednesday French magazine Madame Figaro‘s special Cannes issue is hitting newsstands this Saturday. Guess who’s gracing the cover: Marion Cotillard! The beautiful photoshoot is none other than the one we’ve been anticipating to see more of.
According to a preview of the article – courtesy of PurePeople (view via Google Translator) – the birth of her child is expected before the opening of the festival and she is not for a second contemplating marching the steps for the opening of her new movie – even if it’s the first time she’d have had the opportunity of doing so for one of her own movies en sélection and directed by Woody Allen no less. During the interview she opens up about life in recent months: apparently, being pregnant as well as being home in Paris and seeing more of her friends and family has left her being really Zen – even about being photographed by paparazzi (despite still not liking it). And she calls her part in ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘ a small one.
I can’t wait for the full interview!

‘Midnight in Paris’ gets US release date
The official website for ‘Midnight in Paris‘ is online http://www.sonyclassics.com/midnightinparis/! There isn’t yet any content but it does say that it’ll be released in the US (first only in New York & Los Angeles) on May 20, 2011 – which is actually only little over a week after its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival and the French release date.
Marion Cotillard: Best of 2010
Welcome to 2011! I know I haven’t managed to add all the missing pictures from 2010 appearances and magazine features to the gallery but since I already skipped it last year for these reasons I decided to compile a review of 2010 nontheless. What are your choices? Feel free to comment!
Best News: Marion Cotillard being awarded the Desert Palm Achievement Actress Award at the Palm Springs Film Festival last January and ‘Les petits mouchoirs‘ (Little White Lies) being the most successful French movie of the year. And of course Marion joining the French rock band Yodélice as Simone.
Worst News: After Marion’s participation in the oratorio ‘Jeanne au bûcher‘ was announced for November back in August we didn’t hear anything further. November came and went without the special performances happening. And 48 hours before the year ended Harry Potter passed ‘Les petits mouchoirs‘ (Little White Lies) at the French box office keeping it from being the most successful movie of the year in France.
Favourite magazine cover:
As always Marion Cotillard graced quite a number of covers – all of which gorgeous. But I really like this from Jalouse – March 2010.

Trailer & Airdate of ‘Taratata’
Marion Cotillard taped her appearance on the music TV show Taratata back on September 16, 2010. Finally, it will air on TV! On Tuesday, November 2 at 8.35pm on France 4 and again on Friday, November 5 at 00.40pm on France 2. Watch the Trailer on MyTaratata.com. Apparently, Marion Cotillard will be singing ‘Velvet goldmine’ with Yodélice.
Already this week however, she’ll be seen in Mon Taratata à moi where the guests pick artists to perform on the show. According to the Trailer on MyTaratata.com Marion picked Lilly Allen. Not sure if there’ll be more of Marion during the actual show this Friday than what can be seen in this trailer.
There is also a video where ‘M’ sings a message for Guillaume Canet during the taping of Taratata – Marion is part of the large group of people singing along – which was then played for Guillaume when he was guest on Vivement Dimanche (October 10). Watch it on YouTube.
