‘Un goût de rouille et d’os‘ (Rust and Bones) co-star Matthias Schoenarts recently won the Best Actor prize at the Flanders Film Awards in Belgium for his role in ‘Rundskop‘. Cinevox.be interviewed him about his upcoming projects. He revealed that he got the male lead role in Jacques Audiard’s ‘Un goût de rouille et d’os‘ after several auditions and that he’s done 6 weeks of rehearsals with Marion Cotillard in Paris (I’m not sure when those rehearsals took place). Filming will start this month and last 70 days. In the video interview he praises both Jacques Audiard and Marion Cotillard, says that they are geniuses and interesting people. Sadly, I don’t speak Dutch to understand more than that.
[edit Oct 11] Thanks to Helena for a better summary: “He’s saying that there are some people in the world he would make a movie with without reading the script, but he still did read it. And the project looks fantastic. He’s comparing the movie to Bull’s Head. He says he has a lot of respect for Jacques Audiard. He says that he is one of the best directors in the world. He compliments Marion and he says she works with heart and soul.”
Posted by The Telegraph‘s Celia Walden last Thursday in an article about fashion at award shows and style in general:
With French women it’s the poise that grates… I decide this as I watch Marion Cotillard gliding about the Chateau Marmont restaurant in denim hotpants apparently bought from Baby Gap.
Style – as discussed – can be bought, learnt or imposed, intelligence is generally agreed to be a quaint, outmoded value, but poise – you either have it or you don’t. Cotillard has it, and from the way she’s walking around being thin all over the patio, she knows it.
Just as my companion and I – pink with envy – are about to drag our gazes away from the Oscar-winning actress, Cotillard reaches into a Moses basket, retrieves a perfect, Petit Bateau-clad, three-month-old child and starts burping it while ordering coffee and conducting a business meeting. “Maybe it’s not hers,” attempts my friend lugubriously. “Maybe,” I nod. “Maybe.”
I added a lot more pictures of Marion Cotillard attending the New York premiere of ‘Contagion‘ last Wednesday. I also found videos of her being interviewed by Associated Press, Access Hollywood and MTV News.
The latter can’t be viewed from outside the US so many thanks to Iria from Damian Lewis Web for sending it in for our video archive. It’s especially interesting because she says her character in ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘ is not based on the comic books – which means that the speculation that her character Miranda Tate might be an alias for her real character Talia al Ghul might prove to be just that, specualation only. Read more about this on ScreenRant.com.
Marion was also interviewed by Extra TV, E! and Entertainment Tonight. I haven’t been able to find any interview footage yet so if you do please let me know. Thanks!
Marion Cotillard appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart last night to promote ‘Contagion‘. From the moment she stepped on stage the two displayed germophobia by refusing to touch & kiss when they greeted each other. Apart from that they talked about how Marion loves Will Ferrell and laughed over language matters. Sadly it was equally short as the Jimmy Fallon interview the day before.

I added HQ screencaptures of Marion Cotillard’s appearance on the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon show. They compared their version of Taxi they both starred in (French & US version), then talked about Marion not getting to work with any of the big name co-stars of ‘Contagion‘ and germs in general. I thought their comic timing was perfectly insync and they had the same kind of slightly off-beat sense of humour.
