The Weinstein Company Celebrates ‘Nine’ in Cannes
I’ve added an article from someone who met Marion Cotillard at the annual Gaumont lunch, where she was promoting Le dernier vol. She revealed her 2008 Halloween costume:

Marion Cotillard celebrated ‘Nine‘ together with the movie’s producer The Weinstein Company earlier today. Her co-star Penélope Cruz was supposed to stand next to her. Unfortunately, she was sidelined by “some sort of food poisoning.” People.com reports:
Harvey Weinstein passed on the bad news to a select group of journalists. He then introduced Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard, another star of the ensemble piece. “It was an amazing adventure, it was my dream to be in an American musical,” Cotillard said. “I really hope you are going to love what you are going to see.”
Weinstein added, “When you see [Cotillard] sing, when you see her dance, we bring back a tradition that we need to do more of.”

Marion graces the cover of Elle magazine
Marion Cotillard is featured on the cover of the new issue of French Elle magazine, which appears on newsstands tomorrow. I had to look twice to be sure that this is really Marion but this is nothing short of a spectacular photoshoot! I’ve added previews to the gallery. The article is to promote The Lady Noire Affair and Public Enemies and I guess we know now why Elle magazine is co-hosting the dinner in honor of Marion during the Cannes Film Festival on May 22. Stay tuned for HQ scans and an English translation of the interview!
By the way, the new Guillaume Canet-directed project on Marion’s schedule is indeed called ‘Les Petits Mouchoirs‘. “He envisioned me as this lively girl – not necessarily the most stable – but who’ trying to find her place in the world. And I liked that very much!” (Il m’a imaginée dans la peau d’une fille à vif, pas vraiment la plus stable du monde, mais qui essaie de trouver sa place. Et ça me plaît beaucoup !)

• Marion Cotillard – No Promo Required
Every day, it’s like the Cannes festival over there!
I never dreamed of a César. As a little girl, I never imagined myself making a speech! But, that evening, I was really happy to be awarded in my home country.
And then, during three weeks of rehearsals, I met Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz, Kate Hudson, Fergie, Judi Dench, Sophia Loren and Daniel Day-Lewis. I realized we were all going to be in the same studio, for two months. And I understood we all had our fears concerning the technique required. Suddenly, instead of exhaustion, I felt euphoria, and it hasn’t left me since.
Since I’m still in the middle of making a musical and fulfilling my childhood dream, my heart is singing!
