Already on Monday, Marion Cotillard arrived in Barcelona, Spain, and met with conductor Marc Soustrot. Tuesday morning, she talked to the local press and then met with the orchestra and started rehearsals.

Marion Cotillard, passion on stage, La Vanguardia, November 9, 2012
This is actually only a Google translation. At some points it’s not making much sense. But it’s a very interesting read. She talks about the oratorio, performing it back in 2005 and how the last 2 times there were plans to reprise the role it didn’t work out (there are many people involved and it costs a lot of money). She also talked about money and art:

Do you know that in Spain the Government believes that the theater, music and film are not culture but entertainment?
It is very dangerous to make this consideration, it kills art and forces you to work with productivity in mind. Art is not profitable, but much more importantly, a way of life and expression that is a treasure.

And in France cut subsidies to culture …
There will always be artists who find ways to express themselves and to share with the audience. Sometimes crises renew art, I don’t see that lack of money from our government can kill our culture. I don’t think that an artist can’t speak without money. They always find other ways. Even in the worst financial crisis, art and culture never perish.

Various 'Rust and Bone' Promotion

As the US release of ‘Rust and Bone‘ (De rouille et d’os) is approaching – November 23 in New York and December 6 in Los Angeles – Sony Classics updated the official movie site with actual content last week. It looks great, so be sure to visit!

Marion Cotillard taped 2 talk show appearances (Chelsea Lately and Craig Ferguson) this Tuesday. However, they weren’t aired as it was election day in the US. My guess is they made use of a free day to get her on tape while she was still in the States – she’s expected back in France tomorrow and will later head to Barcelona, Spain – but will air the interviews closer to the release of the movie. The Craig Ferguson interview is actually scheduled to air on November 20. I’ll keep my eyes open for the Chelsea Lately air date.

In the mean time some various promotion material from recent days:

On the Cover of Harper's Bazaar UK December

Marion Cotillard graces the cover of the December issue of UK’s Harper’s Bazaar after she received the International Actor of the Year award from them during the Women of the Year 2012 Awards last night. Check out a preview & a behind the scenes video.

When Marion Cotillard arrived on Bazaar’s cover shoot in LA, it was clear she was approaching the project with as much professionalism as she would if arriving on a Hollywood film set.

The concept of the day? High glamour, couture, rich colour, diamonds, luxurious fabrics, and a powerful, graceful elegance befitting Bazaar’s Women of the Year December issue; the edition in which we celebrate those women (and men) who have touched our lives and made an impact on our world in 2012.

With slicked back hair and smoky eyes, Cotillard models bespoke gowns from Giambattista Valli to Dior. It took the French star just minutes after greeting the team on the day – photographer Ben Hassett, stylist Julia von Boehm and make-up artist Kara Yoshimoto Bua – to slip naturally into the role of fashion muse.

But, while the Academy Award winner undoubtedly has had plenty of experience to draw from for the part – Cotillard is ambassador to the fashion house Dior and was the first to wear Raf Simons’ debut couture collection on the red carpet – she is just as at home in ‘the unpretentious cream sloppy sweater (she doesn’t know or care who by) and brown fedora’ she meets us in when interviewed the day after the shoot in LA’s Chateau Marmot.

With Bazaar writer Lorien Haynes, Cotillard discusses the emotional intensity asked of her to play her latest part in the critically acclaimed Rust and Bone (and Oscar rumours are already swirling), and the challenges of balancing a career as an A-list actor with her latest role as mother to 18-month-old Marcel and her relationship with actor and director Guillame Canet, Marcel’s father, which brings Cotillard to tears.

On the Cover of TIME Style & Design

On the Cover of TIME Style & Design

Marion Cotillard is on the cover of the Fall issue of TIME Style & Design looking strikingly elegant. Order it here. There’s also a really interesting story behind the photo shoot:

news-2012-09-06To prepare for his cover sitting with Marion Cotillard for TIME Style&Design’s fall issue, photographer Peter Hapak hit the archives, collecting pictures of Paris and Parisian fashion during the 1930s, including the work of famed French photographer Jacques Henri Lartigue. Studying images of women in restaurants, chatting with friends or simply roaming the streets of the city, Hapak easily understood why Paris has long been considered a fashion capital of the world. “All of the women looked like they had walked out of a fashion magazine,” he says. “Fashion is such a big part of the culture there, and you can even feel that history when walking through the city today.”

On set in Paris this August, Hapak tried to evoke this era, capturing Cotillard in designs by French fashion houses Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Christian Dior, along with other designers like Andrew Gn and Dries Van Noten. “She’s the representation of the French woman for me—elegant, but not too stylized,” says Hapak of Cotillard, who won the Academy Award for Best Actress in 2007 for her portrayal of French singer Édith Piaf in La Vie en Rose. “With the cover look, it felt like she was pulling a dress out of her own closet. It went so well with her style, and she felt really confident in it, that you would have never known she was dressing up for a shoot.”
