At the end of September 2010 when ‘Inception‘ was about to be released in Italian cinemas Marion Cotillard graced the cover of the Italian Vanity Fair magazine. The photoshoot caught the attention of many internet websites shortly afterwards because it appeared not to have been retouched. I love the idea even if the styling of the hair and the flowery dress might not have been the best choices. Additionally, there are some gorgeous pictures of Marion in costume rehearsing or playing with the rock band Yodélice as well as pictures that have a somewhat everyday life-feeling to them. Enjoy!
If anybody who knows Italian feels like sending in a translation of the exclusive interview please don’t hesitate to do so – it would be much appreciated!
Kindly do not redistribute the magazine scans at another Marion Cotillard fan site as they were scanned exclusively for ‘Magnifique Marion Cotillard’. Thank you.
NOW Magazine has a new interview with iconic actor Christopher Plummer. At the end there’s an audio snippet where he talks about his connection to Edith Piaf and why Marion Cotillard deserved her Oscar.

Remember ‘Cosmopolis‘ – the David Cronenberg movie Marion Cotillard’s been attached to since last May? It seems that Colin Farrell who had been attached to the project to take the lead role is out of the picture because Deadline reports that Robert Pattinson has signed for the part of Eric Packer.
While all the news reports are still mentioning Marion Cotillard and Paul Giamatti (also “in talks” to join according to a report by The Playlist from last December) their involvement is as of yet unclear – there haven’t been any reports of them actually signing on to the movie. If Marion is still on board she’d play Pattinson’s wife.
This idea comes from Gemma_Marion and is being organized by Cotillardaddict .
