Welcome to the new version of ‘Presenting Marion Cotillard’. I have re-done the whole content with WordPress – an amazing feature that I’m discovering at the moment. There’s nothing new content-wise, really, but expect more information on Marion’s projects as well as new scans after I’m back from my holiday at the end of the month.
In the meantime, why don’t you comment? Thanks 🙂
p.s. the header features 3 rotating/random images…
I’ve added some more photoshoot pictures to the gallery (register & log in to be able to view) that the lovely Mariana had sent in! Many thanks! There are also some more pictures of Marion Cotillard promoting La Vie en Rose (La Môme) in the States.
I’ve added the Screencaptures, Making Of and Teaser for last year’s French film ‘Dikkenek’. Enjoy!

Marion Cotillard is a risk-seeker, but not in the conventional sense. She doesn’t do drugs, and she doesn’t parachute out of planes.
“I find my pleasure by putting myself in danger – a danger that makes me feel alive – a danger that comes from acting,” she told me when we met at London’s Claridge’s Hotel to discuss her extraordinary portrayal of French singer Edith Piaf in the movie La Vie En Rose, which goes on release here on June 22 following its opening of the recent Rendez-vous With French Cinema Festival in London.
Ms Cotillard portrays the Little Sparrow from her late teens through to her death at 47, when her tiny frame was unable to cope with the vast amounts of alcohol and narcotics she had ingested.
At her death, it was said Piaf resembled a 70-year-old. “That’s what I mean!’ Cotillard, who is 31, suddenly exclaimed. ‘I like it when it’s risky,” she added.
Yet Piaf belied her circumstances. “She struggled and she achieved because she worked hard at her singing voice but I don’t like to use the phrase that she was a good example – because she wasn’t!
“I liked the fact that she pushed herself further and further.”
Some aspects of director Olivier Dahan’s amazing film are uneven, but Cotillard’s performance lifts the picture to a level of greatness. The actress puts all her life force into the portrait of a small woman with a big talent, and even bigger emotions.
