As always unannounced Simone (aka Marion Cotillard) made an appearance with Yodelice at their concert in the famous music hall Olympia in Paris. It was her second performance at the venue with Yodelice (after last May) and also where some of the filming for ‘La Vie en Rose‘ took place (one of the most famous Édith Piaf concerts took place at that venue). Last night, Simone only joined Yodelice for 2 songs: she was playing the guitar on My Bood Is Burning and More Than Meets The Eye. Heavily pregnant she seems to have been enjoying herself tremendously. Watch videos on YouTube.

ELLE Japan published many messages of support sent in by celebrities to the people of Japan after disaster struck their country. Among them a particularly heartwarming message by Marion Cotillard:
Man is so weak against the uprising of nature, but man is also a force of that nature.
Your courage and life will bring this beautiful country called Japan to bloom again.
I’m thinking of you constantly.
I’m sharing your pain, we’re all sharing it.
I’m sending you all my love.
