The Argument: Marion Cotillard, Hollywood’s favourite French actress, gets unleashed in Rust and Bone

The first time I saw Marion Cotillard in the flesh was at this year’s TIFF. The jaw-droppingly gorgeous French actress was standing atop a long flight of stairs inside Michael’s on Simcoe. She was in town for the gala presentation of Rust and Bone, a dark and visceral French romance adapted from a collection of short stories by Toronto author Craig Davidson and directed by Jacques Audriard. In the film, she plays a killer whale trainer at Marineland who loses her legs in a freak accident involving an aquatic animal routine gone very, very wrong.

‘Rust and Bone’ masterfully depicts tragedy, love

Marion Cotillard won the best actress Academy Award in 2007 for her performance as the iconic chanteuse Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose. It’s highly likely that Cotillard, who has managed to work both sides of the Atlantic – in her native France and in Hollywood – will be nominated again in January, for her work in an altogether different sort of French film, Jacques Audiard’s Rust and Bone.

Marion Cotillard gets ‘Rust and Bone’ amputee character with one image

It took just one image for Oscar-winning French actress Marion Cotillard to nail the physicality of her “Rust and Bone” character, an orca trainer who loses her legs in an accident at Marineland. “We were preparing the movie … trying costumes and … the first time I sat on a chair on my legs and I had those pants hanging, the image was so strong that we knew that the process of creating her was really on,” said the 37-year-old Paris native.

Marion Cotillard’s new role cuts to the ‘Bone’

Marion Cotillard takes a tough turn in the gritty love story “Rust and Bone.” In her new film “Rust and Bone,” which already has set box office records in France, Marion Cotillard takes a dramatic step away from her chic, seductive earlier roles. Cotillard won a 2008 Oscar as Edith Piaf in “La Vie en Rose,” played captivating dream women in “Inception” and “Midnight in Paris,” and has been a brand ambassador of Dior since 2009.

Interview: Marion Cotillard of ‘Rust and Bone’

Good news, Katy Perry fans: Though Marion Cotillard’s whale trainer character in “Rust and Bone” loses her legs in an accident as Perry’s “Firework” plays, the actress says she’s not too traumatized by the empowerment tune. “The song’s become something very special to me,” says the Paris-born Cotillard by phone from New York. “And we listen to it a lot with the team I work with. I love the song.”

‘Dark Knight Rises’ Star Marion Cotillard on Gun Violence: ‘It’s a Vicious Circle’

Marion Cotillard is still visibly shaken when she recalls the moment she first heard about the Aurora shootings. The date was July 20, 2012, and what was meant to be a career high for the Oscar-winner — starring in a new, Christopher Nolan-directed Batman epic — was instantly overshadowed by unthinkable tragedy, as news quickly spread that a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises in Colorado left 12 moviegoers dead at the hands of a crazed shooter.
