'Rust and Bone' Star Marion Cotillard on Juggling Family, Career

from The Hollywood Reporter / Jane Carlson

The actress, who walked the red carpet at the AFI Fest premiere of her new movie and was feted at a prescreening event, says: “I never see a challenge. I just see a lot of work.”

Marion Cotillard looked ravishing in a white and black Dior gown at AFI Fest on Monday night, where she spoke about the challenges of balancing work and family.

“I never see a challenge,” the Rust and Bone star said. “I just see a lot of work.” Now that the face of Dior has a family, she explains that her ability to set aside time and inhabit a character and then come home and be a mom is important to her. “I didn’t know that I could go back and forth.” This ability allows the actress to take on “very intense roles without losing myself in these roles. It’s really something that I cherish,” she added.

The Oscar winner not only walked the red carpet at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood for the Los Angeles and AFI Fest premiere of her new film, but she also answered questions during a prescreening event, In Tribute to Marion Cotillard.

She attended the afterparty at the Roosevelt hotel with her co-star Matthias Schoenaerts and the writer-director of the film, Jacques Audiard. There, she mingled with fans and movie industry players including Sony Pictures Classics co-president Michael Barker, who was celebrating the positive buzz the movie has been receiving. “Sometimes you just have to put your faith in a filmmaker you believe in, and if all of the stars are in alignment, it works out,” said Barker. “This film is a romance unlike you have ever seen.”

Schoenaerts, who is a relative newcomer to the Hollywood scene, said he hopes moviegoers experience “something that was profound” and take away from this movie that “even with a total loss in your life, with love you can rediscover life and come back to life because of that love.”

The French-Belgian film is based on Craig Davidson’s short-story collection of the same name. It tells the story of an unemployed 25-year-old man, trying to take care of his young son, who falls in love with a killer-whale trainer. The Sony Pictures Classics film hits theaters Nov. 16.

I added some pictures and screencaptures of Marion Cotillard at last Wednesday’s Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards. Part of her acceptance speech and an interview backstage was released in a video on the magazine’s website.

Video & Pictures of Marion Cotillard on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno

Sorry for the delay (I had some technical difficulties) but already on Saturday Luise added stills of Marion Cotillard on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno from the previous night and I added HD screencaptures of both her interview and the rest of the show. Now, the video is also in our archive & ready for you to watch. It’s one of Marion’s best TV appearances in my opinion. The questions were good and she had perfect timing with being both serious and funny. Highlights include miming, telling a joke and relating the jellyfish incident which happened on the set of ‘Rust & Bone‘. There’s also a new clip from the movie.

Interview about Joan of Arc Oratorio

The Spanish newspaper El Periódico published an interview with Marion Cotillard about her upcoming performances in Arthur Honegger’s iconic 1938 oratorio Jeanne au Bûcher (“Joan of Arc at the Stake”) at the Barcelona Auditori on November 17 & 18. Marc Soustrot is conducting the Orquestra Simfònica de Barcelona i Nacional de Catalunya along with the Vivaldi, Liedercamera and Madrigal choirs. As previously announced the November 17 performance will be presented by medici.tv in a Live Webcast (2pm EST). Check out our past updates as well as their press release in English for more information.

Anyway, back to the interview. In it she talks about why this project means so much to her that she is reprising the role after performing the oratorio already in her hometown Orléans back in 2005, how her parents performed it when she was a child, what the challenges of the performances will be as well as wardrobe choices! I translated the article with help of Google Translator and a dictionary. I hope I got it right. Enjoy!

'Rust and Bone' UK Promotion

Marion Cotillard was very busy promoting her new movie ‘Rust & Bone‘ (De rouille et d’os) during the London Film Festival. The movie was released earlier this week on Friday in UK theatres. This means there were tons of new articles, videos & magazine features. Here’s an overview of which articles, clips & screencaps (some are HD) as well as scans I added during the past days.

Even though the videos may look all the same and basically cover all the same topics (Rust & Bone, Awards Season and Red Carpet Style) there’s something new and different in each of them. Kudos to Marion for not talking like a machine even though giving this many interviews in one day!
