I added more pictures to the album of Thursday’s Paris premiere of ‘Les petits mouchoirs‘. The whole cast was there, including Maxim Nucci (Yodélice) and the child actors. Apparently, there was a dress code to wear black – although I haven’t found any reference to that yet. There’s a video with interviews of the cast – sadly not with Marion – on Premiere.fr.
Marion was wearing a Christian Dior Fall 2010 strapless leather dress and combined the look with few accessories but with bold lipstick and didn’t sweep her bangs to the side for a change. An unusual look for her which got very mixed feedback around the web. What do you think?

Once again Marion Cotillard is on the cover of French Elle. The 8 page feature with a brand new photoshoot looks really great! I can’t wait to pick up the issue and scan it. Here’s the feature on the Elle Website.

This is just a post to let you know I’ve started adding pictures of Marion Cotillard at the ‘Les petits mouchoirs‘ premiere in Paris earlier tonight to the gallery. I will add more information and pictures at a later time.
Guillaume Canet & Co. were very busy the previous Sunday, October 3. First they made a 15-minute stop (source) at the Pathé cinema in Lievin. Marion was unable to accompany them since she had to arrive earlier at their 2nd stop in Lomme for interviews (source) but sent greetings (source).
As already mentioned, they then stopped at the Kinepolis cinema in Lomme near Lille. This is where fans and media greeted Guillaume Canet and his friends: Marion Cotillard, Gilles Lellouche, François Cluzet, Pascale Arbillot, Laurent Lafitte and Joël Dupuch. Only absent due to filming commitments were Jean Dujardin, Benoît Magimel and Valérie Bonneton. France 3 aired a news report about the premiere with a short Marion interview the following day.
The group also made a stop at the UGC theatre in Villeneuve. There’s a video of this on YouTube uploaded by jeanpierreblauw. La voix du nord has 2 articles about this here and here.
The last stop was the UGC Ciné Cité Cinema in Lille. There are 2 very good videos by CalogeroFanzone on Youtube: Part 1 and Part 2. These are particularly noteworthy because they were having so much fun, even singing bits of songs while introducing the movie. I added screencaptures of these to the gallery.
Not surprisingly, all these highly successful advance screenings around the country in the past weeks have resulted in over 10,000 people having seen the movie prior to its official theatrical release on October 20 – as of October 4 (source). The number has increased since.
Many thanks Nadine for your tremendous help in finding the links to all this information. Stay tuned for more catch-up posts as well as pictures from the official premiere which took place earlier tonight.

Many thanks Miss Grain from Zhang Ziyi Infos for the scans of last week’s issue of Femina. It’s mostly an interview by François Cluzet with Guillaume Canet. But there’s a gorgeous new photo of the cast as well as some lovely on set pictures. Read the interview on Femina.fr.
Marion Cotillard is featured on the cover of this week’s Styles – sold together with L’Express Magazine. While the cover is an old picture (BlackBook June/July 2009) the inside picture is new and looks like yet another Chopard Photoshoot. The interview is brand-new and interesting (thanks Nadine for the transcript). She talks about how Guillaume Canet is a very talented director. He always finds the right words to voice what he wants from his actors. Also about the personal issues of Marie, her character in Les petits mouchoirs as well as about her search for simplicity in her personal life. She doesn’t want to play a character in her everyday life anymore and is surprised when she looks at pictures of her from 10 years ago when she was wearing much more make-up etc. She also mentions the project by director David Cronenberg [Cosmopolis]: nothing’s signed but she keeps dreaming of starring in the movie.
