I’ve finally added the clip of Marion Cotillard’s interview on “Le grand journal”, which took place May 18, 2009 during the Cannes Film Festival. Not only that but you can also find HQ screencaptures of the interview as well as an English translation. I hope the translation really conveys the meaning of what was said on TV.

On May 22 Dior and ELLE magazine hosted a dinner in honor of Marion Cotillard at the Hotel du Cap Eden-Roc. The hotel’s furnishings were all covered in red Chinese silk and Marion, who attended together with Guillaume Canet, matched the Asian flare of the event by wearing a crimson bustier dress. Here some of her quotes:
Cannes is every bit as glamorous as the Oscars
Being Lady Dior is fabulous. I meet beautiful people and go to amazing parties. But most of all I love John; he’s so unique and creative. I like people who take risks, and he’s the boldest designer of them all.
I get to wear amazing Dior dresses, but I don’t get to keep them,” she smiled. “They all go into this magical archive!

Ok, I’m back and trying to catch up with all the Marion news as quickly as my very busy real life schedule allows. Today, I bring you some scans of recent publications – one even has a brand-new interview with Marion Cotillard, I’ve added the transcript to the press archive: Cultural Conversion
This is a part of me that you have to protect not to be hurt by mean things. I do my job, I try to do my job the best I can. I love it, I am very happy of what happens, so I don’t want to destroy this by being hurt by bad energy.
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 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 !)
French weekly magazine Paris Match (issue May 7-13) dedicated 6 pages to Marion Cotillard’s part in the Lady Dior campaign, especially in the upcoming (May 20) short film “The Lady Noire Affair. Read the article in the press archive and enjoy the HQ scans in the gallery.
I will try to get a translation of the interview up as soon as possible. As always, thank you for your patience!
Kindly do not redistribute these scans at another Marion Cotillard fan site as they were obtained/donated exclusively for ‘Magnifique Marion Cotillard’. Thank you.
Back in February, Marion Cotillard was a one-off editor on an issue of French Elle magazine titled “Green Special”. Today, I bring you Ioana’s translation of Marion’s editorial for the magazine. Be sure to head over to the press archive to read it!
Ioana sent me the translated interview from the February issue of Studio Ciné Live earlier last month. Here it is now for you all to enjoy! Marion Cotillard talks about the 08 Awards Season and Oscar campaign, winning a César and a Oscar, filming Public Enemies and Nine as well as any possible projects in the future & more.
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!
I faced horrible traffic and drove into town to get the new French Elle magazine. But alas, it wasn’t on our newsstands yet. I guess it’ll arrive on Monday. I’ll have HQ scans up then.
Until then, browse the “Spécial écolo” dossier on the magazine website. There are a number of (small) cute Marion pics – in a countryside themed photoshoot. And GaKaTaN already has scans of the pictures up on his blog. And I added the new French interview to the Press Archive:
Hopefully, we will soon be able to catch up with providing English translations of recent articles and news items. Please be patient as translating is quite a demanding job and my friend is doing it in her free time! Thanks for understanding.
Oh, and by the way, Marion-Cotillard.fr has a link to a special report that aired yesterday on French TV chain M6. View it here. Note: it’s not possible to watch this outside France – hopefully someone will put it up on YouTube soon!
