I added HQ screencaptures and the clips of Marion Cotillard on the Popcorn show with Rolling Stone movie critic Peter Travers. It looks like this, the Charlie Rose show & the MTV interviews were all taped on the Monday before the Times Talk. Anyway, I love this interview. The topics are both serious and interesting while at the same time there are questions to lighten up the mood. Peter Travers seemed to be very familiar with Marion’s career – which is of course a bonus – and he also asked her about the Hawskley Workman collaboration. As he makes his guests sing a little snippet of a song that means something to them Marion Cotillard beautifully sang a line from Elvis’ Fools Rush In, which she sings to her son to put him to sleep.

I finally added the lovely interview with Marion Cotillard on the Charlie Rose Show from last week. She talked about why she became an actress, her role in ‘Rust and Bone‘ – of course – and why confidence will never really be part of her life as an actress. It’s a good interview albeit too short. Let’s hope Charlie Rose’s invitation to have her back on the show to talk longer will work.
Usually, New York Times Magazine’s The Hollwyood Issue also is accompanied by behind the scenes videos. This year, they’re entitled “Wide-Awake” and feature the actresses’s dreams and transformations photoshoots. Watch them all here.

On Monday, Marion Cotillard talked to MTV’s Josh Horowitz about ‘Rust and Bone‘ (De rouille et d’os), Katy Perry and that lie she told him a year ago at the ‘Contagion‘ premiere (clip) about her role in ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘. Many thanks Monica for her help with the videos. Watch on website 1 & 2.
After a long break, the fifth episode of the new Lady Dior Documentary is online! It shows a little bit of what went on behind the scenes when Marion Cotillard was writing and recording the song for the last episode together with Maxim Nucci (Yodelice). Then it shows her going to the Paris Fashion Week and designing her own Dior bag as well as goofing around at the London Fillm Festival.
She’s been the face of the Lady Dior bag since 2008, the embodiment of a dynamic and refined woman. And so it was only natural that Marion Cotillard would design her perfect bag, her very own Lady Dior, as modern as it is timeless, just like her.

Yesterday, Marion Cotillard, together with co-star Matthias Schoenaerts, first attended a ‘Rust and Bone‘ lunch at Brasserie Ruhlmann in New York organized by Peggy Siegal. You may want to read this article by Word and Film about the lunch. New York Post quotes her as saying:
The Oscar-winning beauty, who plays an orca trainer who loses her legs in “Rust and Bone,” said she can understand her character’s sense of feeling lost. “She doesn’t feel life, so she is pretty violent and cold and tough because she protects herself from being empty in a way. I know that feeling to be lost . . . Not now, but a few years ago when I was lost and didn’t know the purpose of life. You know, when you start asking questions to yourself and you don’t have any answers and you’re just lost? It happens to many people.”
Marion Cotillard then headed to TheTimesCenter for the TimesTalk, which was also live-streamed, and gave a really interesting interview about her career, mostly since ‘La Vie en Rose‘ and the process of acting, preparing for a role and leaving a character behind. It’s definitely worth watching!
For both events she was wearing an elegant Azzedine Alaia pleated dress with black court shoes. I added some pictures – and again, thank you so much Luciana for helping with many of the pictures!
Marion Cotillard received an honorary tribute during the Gotham Awards at Cipriani Wall Street in New York on Monday evening. Her co-star from Big Fish, Public Enemies and the upcoming Blood Ties smilingly and with a lot of praise introduced the tribute. In her speech Marion Cotillard heralded challenges and new experiences that smaller films provide. She also said that filmmakers need champions and thanked IFP for being those champions. She thanked director Jacques Audiard and Matthias Schoeaerts and dedicated the award to 2 people who have always trusted in her at every stage of her career: her 2 agents Laurent Grégoire and Hylda Queally – all of which were also present.
PLEASE if you can find a video of this lovely speech, can you send it in? I unfortunately didn’t manage to record it from the livestream.
Many thanks to Luciana for her great help with many of the pictures from the event. I also added snippets from news reports as a video.
After the awards Marion Cotillard and others from the Gotham Awards headed over to N. 8 for the ‘Killing Them Softly‘ Premiere After Party. She was pictured with her agent Hylda Queally.

Marion Cotillard’s taped segment on the Chelsea Lately Show aired last night & she looked gorgeous. The interview was really short – just over 6 minutes only – and while there were hints of serious answers it is definitely a comedy show and was mostly geared towards generating laughter. Marion was a good sport though and seemed to enjoy herself. Enjoy!
‘Grand Public’ a, I think new, show that brings in-depth reports about all things culture on French TV channel France 2 aired a segment about Marion Cotillard in Barcelona last Thursday night. I added the clip as well as HQ screencaptures on Friday but forgot to post about it.
They showed how big the anticipation was in Barcelona by showing news clippings and posters for the show. However, the people in charge are cited who say that they didn’t want a lot of mediazation or attention so they were happy it only started in the few days before the show. The report included some footage of Marion and the other performers getting ready before the show.
The report later laid out how important this role was to Marion, how close to her heart. After having been handed the show by her mother, so to speak, in 2005 (they included a few seconds of footage with her mother as Joan of arc) she wanted to reprise it again. So when the people in Barcelona were organizing their celebration of the 600th anniversary of Joan of Arc’s birth and wanted to include Honegger’s oratorio but were lacking a main actress then heard that Marion was interested they jumped at the chance. Apparently, there really doesn’t exist any footage of Marion in the play back in 2005 as they only showed stills and had a reporter recall how it was. He said that she was exceptional and that it showed what she could do. If she could do Joan of Arc in this then she could do Edith Piaf. Which she, as we all know, did. Now, a Hollywood star she’s still capable of doing it.
Another reporter said that it’s a challenging part, when you do it right it can be the highlight of your career but when you mess it up it can be the worst experience ever, even put you out of business.
So seeing again the overwhelming approval of the audience by their (10 min) long applause and seeing an emotional and overwhelmed but satisfied Marion backstage after the show, hugging the producer and talking to the press was quite moving to watch.
I have some more articles & TV reports about this but have to get it ready (in English) first.
I added the video and HD screencaptures of Marion’s appearance on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson last night – though it was recorded 2 weeks ago on December 6. It was as funny as those Ferguson interviews get, Marion was at ease and played along with his jokes and was goofing around. It’s really entertaining to watch – though actual content-wise there’s nothing new. Oh, and she looked really chic in that outfit and the bright red lipstick.
