NOW Magazine has a new interview with iconic actor Christopher Plummer. At the end there’s an audio snippet where he talks about his connection to Edith Piaf and why Marion Cotillard deserved her Oscar.
I don’t think I updated about this last year but I did in 2008 and 2007. Marion Cotillard is featured on the Most Beautiful Faces list for the 9th time – this year at #12. This is an international list and is different from your usual Sexiest… lists. Camilla Belle, Emma Watson and Tamsin Egerton occupy the first 3 spots. See the full list here.
The previously mentioned dolls created by Marion Cotillard herself and by Dior HOMME for Guillaume Canet have since been shown in the exhibition at the Petit Palais in Paris with all the other dolls. This is the page for them on the official site. UNICEF’s press release reports that all the dolls were sold at an auction on Tuesday for a total of €285 000. Marion & Guillaume’s dolls were sold together for €4 000. The money will be used to help vaccinate thousands of children in Darfur.
Variety again put up their section “Actors on Actors” as part of their award season special. There’s one where Marion Cotillard gushes about Nicole Kidman.

And one where Kevin Spacey talks about Leonoardo DiCaprio and Marion Cotillard:
Leonardo DiCaprio. I thought his work in ‘Inception’ was really great. His work in ‘Shutter Island’ was also great. And anytime he’s onscreen with Marion Cotillard is extraordinary. She, also, is incredible. Their relationship is so much the heart of that film — everything he was trying to shift and change so that the ending would be different. It’s remarkable. And it’s such a complex story. If you left that movie to go get popcorn or take a pee, you were screwed.

Whether it’s sleek chic or cyberfantasy, silver-screen Hollywood glamour or Holly Woodlawn camp, whether it’s East End edge or East Egg flapper dazzle, from head (artful marcel waves, tumbled-out-of-bed tousle, or candy-floss high-rise) to toe (ballet slippers with dirndls or platforms with ball gowns), the ten individualists whom Vogue celebrates as the Best Dressed of 2010 are gamely rewriting the rules. Or rather, showing us all that there are no rules beyond staying true to oneself.
