WWD.com reports that Marion Cotillard’s latest campaign with Dior features several new versions of the famous Lady Dior handbag, including one bearing a floral print, and Marion jumping with grace on a trampoline wearing looks from the pre-fall collection by Dior’s couturier Raf Simons. The shots were captures by photographer Jean-Baptiste Mondino and will debut this Friday in Vogue Brazil and April 2 in Vanity Fair in the U.S. There’s also a short making of clip, see below.
The embodiment of ethereal grace, Marion Cotillard reveals her effortlessly elegant femininity for Jean-Baptiste Mondino’s camera. Liberated in her movements, the star appears to take flight, carried away by the dynamic of a carefree dance. The Lady Dior on her arm is an extension of who she is: timelessly elegant, it’s forever renewing itself in surprising and creative ways. Pop in fuchsia leather, or precious in brown crocodile, it also comes with a floral print in delicate shades of pink with graphic lines.

I added screencaptures and a clip of Marion Cotillard’s cameo in ‘Anchorman 2‘. She and Jim Carrey are participating in the international news teams battle with their “incredibly polite Canadian news team”. Marion Cotillard’s newsanchor is from French speaking Quebec News – “the real voice of Canada”.

I also added the ‘Joan of Arc at the Stake‘ press release to our press archive. This is a quote from Marion Cotillard about the news (also see video below):
“It is a great joy for me to be part of this tremendous adventure of Jeanne d’Arc au bûcher staged by the inspired Côme de Bellescize. Sharing this experience with the New York Philharmonic and the great actors Éric Génovèse and Christian Gonon will be an amazing journey. I want to warmly thank Alan Gilbert and Matthew VanBesien for offering us such a great opportunity. I feel so lucky and I am looking forward to sharing this work, which is, at this point, one of my greatest experiences as an actress.”
Conductor Alan Gilbert calls her his hero and a brilliant actress and director Côme de Bellescize said that “it’s a great pleasure and honor to have the opportunity to work with Marion, especially for a play that has such meaning for her.”
The two times Marion Cotillard had taken on this role before were concert versions but this time it will be a staged version. Inspired by a gothic cathedral square Joan (Marion Cotillard) and the stake will be positioned on a platform in the middle of the orchestra. Côme de Bellescize has staged this version before, in 2012 in Japan.
Interestingly, in the notes for Côme de Bellescize’s recent play Amédée it says that he will not only recreate the 2012 staging of Jeanne au bûcher in New York but also in March 2015 in Paris – with Marion Cotillard. I can’t wait for more info!

019 Online Interviews > NY Philharmonic – 2014
As previously announced Marion Cotillard was the guest when Laurent Weil presented Trailers for upcoming movies on December 28, 2013. As it turned out the interview was conducted during the Marrakech Film Festival just after Marion Cotillard had presented ‘Public Enemies‘ on Jemaa El Fna square, an experience she’s always dreamed about ever since hearing other people talk about it when she came to the festival before.
Then she talked about ‘Terre des ours‘, she loves documentaries and was at first hesitant to accept being the voice because she usually prefers the visuals in documentaries to speak for themselves. But she really loves how ‘Terre des ours‘ shows a place of this world where nobody goes and these sublime animals that are adversely affected by humans. So if this movie moves just one person to learn more or to help preserve this world she’s happy. Laurent Weil joked that this would be the first movie her son could watch, Marion laughed but said that she sometimes thinks of how Johnny Depp’s career changed when he had kids and she sometimes would like to make a movie just for kids.
After a couple of trailers Marion Cotillard talked about her experience of shooting ‘Deux jours, une nuit‘ (Two Days, One Night) with the Dardenne brothers. The movie is similar to their previous films in tone and genre and it was one of Marion’s greatest experiences as an actress. Their movies have some of the strongest moments she has ever seen in films and so she wanted to ask them about everything. She would have done anything for them. But even though she loves working with great cineasts she wouldn’t say this is an important criteria since it’s just amazing to have the opportunity to go from one cinematic universe to another.
After some more trailers they talked about the upcoming ‘Macbeth‘, for which she was in full preparation even though having taken out time to be part of the jury at the Marrakech Film Festival. She repeated that she had always believed to be one day portraying Lady M after playing her at drama school, however she thought it would take place on stage and in French.
Later, Laurent Weil asked her about the lack of comedies on her CV. She said she loves comedies but doesn’t think she has achieved the level of authenticity necessary for comedies yet or that the little bit of comedy she’s done is any good. (Interestingly, they don’t mention her cameo appearance in ‘Anchorman 2‘ even though later on the trailer was shown. People have praised her cameo by the way.)
