Marion Cotillard in a TV Magazine 1996

I have no idea whether this indeed is Marion Cotillard’s first magazine appearance but it’s certainly the first I have in my extensive magazine collection. 20 year old Marion Cotillard was promoting her first leading role in TV movie ‘Chloé‘. I’m sure you’re as excited as I am about this gem!

Filming took place in the roads of Liège during nights – it was constantly very cold. She said that director Dennis Berry had already showed her this screenplay while he directed her for an episode of ‘Highlander‘. But she didn’t want to play the part then. When the screenplay was rewritten 2 years later she wanted to play Chloé, a girl full of hope and searching for the absolute. She dove into the part saying to herself that she might never again get to play such a strong character (little did she know hehe). The nude scenes didn’t bother her as they weren’t gratuitious but rather important for the character’s credibility.

Hobbies while not filming included at the time reading and looking out the window, admiring the trees. She also had the habit of preparing Mexican dishes for her friends and serving them while they were all watching football on TV.

Kindly do not redistribute the magazine scans at another Marion Cotillard fan site as they were scanned exclusively for ‘Magnifique Marion Cotillard’. Thank you.

Public Appearances from 2001 and 2002

After adding missing pictures from the years 1998 to 2000 in the public appearance section, I now also added those from 2001 and 2002. Additionally, Sofia has added some rare HQ pics from these years as well. It was the time when she was promoting ‘Les jolies choses‘ (Pretty Things), ‘Une femme piegée‘ and ‘Une affaire privée‘ (A Private Affair). In 2002 she also received her second César nomination (for ‘Les jolies choses‘).

Marion Cotillard's early TV Appearances

As you may have noticed Sofia came on board just before the Cannes Film Festival to help keep the site stay updated. She’s been doing a great job with adding all the latest info, HQ event pics & magazine scans. Not only that but she also added new HQ pictures of Marion Cotillard’s early TV appearances. Thank you! Be sure to check them out!

On December 28, 2002 Marion Cotillard appeared on the first edition of French TV Show “Défis des stars” (Challenges for stars). Directed by Pascal Duchêne and moderated by Nikos Aliagas and Star Academy finalist Eva 20 brave actors, singers and comedians faced challenges that revolved around the circus such as animal training, juggling, magic and cabaret acts. Marion performed using a magic wand. Judging by the screencaps by Erik she was also an assistant in one of the magic acts. Fellow participants included her co-stars from ‘Taxi‘ (Samy Nacéri performed with 4 tigres from Circus Yann Gruss and Frédéric Diefenthal with bears from Circus Phénix) and ‘Les jolies choses‘ (Ophélie Winter performed on aerial silk and Titoff in another act). Elie Semoun, Véronique Genest, Gérard Jugnot, L5, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Grégori Baquet, Anthony Kavanagh, Patrick Timsit and Pascal Sellem were also part of the show.

Moderator Nikos said in advance: “I don’t know whether it will work for viewers. But I think it’s very nice to see the stars in different roles, to see them in burlesque, funny or dangerous situations. There will be music, entertainment, it will be a party. It’s the end of the year, so we will finish it in a good mood, with completely original and magical images.” And they succeeded for the newspaper Le Parisien later called it an original evening.

Does anybody have videos of any of the shows we’ve added pictures of – or of Marion Cotillard’s other television appearances? Please send them in, we’d be very thankful!

Madame Figaro, Deux Jours Une Nuit, Updates

001.jpg 001.jpg 001.jpg 002.jpg

In July, Marion Cotillard was once again on the cover of Madame Figaro in France. Known for her passion for the environment, the magazine interviewed her for their “Green” edition and the interview was focused on Marion’s views and every day contributions to the environment. At the end of the article, they did a list of Marion’s six commandments for the environment in which she says she never takes long baths (to save water) and that she cleans her house with white vinegar. The photoshoot for the article is brand new and shot by photographer Jan Welters who had worked with her in 2010 for ELLE

Other than that, Marion has been busy shooting the new movie by the Dardenne brothers. They began rehearsals in June and have been shooting in Belgium for the past few weeks. I added a photo of Marion holding the one month old that was chosen to participate in the movie. You can read the article (in French) here.

During rehearsals, a bakery was chosen in a small town for the shooting of one scene Marion was in. The owners of the bakery, who were present for filming and who played themselves in the movie described Marion as very professional, focused and somewhat shy.
