Remember the lovely pictures used in ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘ articles in international magazines such as Cinemag (Uruguay), Movieweek (South Korea) and Marie Claire (Hungary) this past summer? Did you love them as much as I & wish to see more of them? Then this update is good news. Enjoy!

Marion is featured in the Hollywood Reporter’s annual Actress Roundtable this year! The magazine gets together chosen actresses involved in the years Oscar race, and talks to them about all things actress-y. This year they talk to Marion, Naomi Watts, Anne Hathaway, Amy Adams, Sally Field, Rachel Weisz and Helen Hunt.
The Hollywood Reporter’s Actress Roundtable was held October 22nd at Siren Studios in Hollywood.
The full roundtable discussion has been posted online for us to watch, which you can do below. A text version is featured in the November 30th edition of the magazine with the actresses all looking beautiful on the cover in a new group photoshoot. That is posted below for you too. Mia and I have added the cover, photoshoot pictures, and behind the scenes of the photoshoot and discussion to our Gallery. Needless to say, we will be on the lookout for scans, and if you can help us out with this, please get in touch
As we posted about before, Marion is on the cover of the December issue of UK Harper’s Bazaar magazine, and last weekend I uploaded digital scans from the magazine to our Gallery. As well as the gorgeous new photoshoot and interview, the magazine also includes two new Dior adverts.
Digital scans are never the best of quality, but I think Mia intends to replace them with exclusive original scans when she is able to get a copy of the magazine herself. Until then, enjoy these:

If you missed yesterday’s webcast on medici.tv of Honegger’s oratorio ‘Joan at the Stake‘ (Jeanne au bûcher) starring Marion Cotillard live from Barcelona you have still 90 days to watch it in delayed streaming on their website or here (see video above). It’s truly an amazing work, brought to life perfectly by the many musicians, choirs and the main reciters, especially Marion Cotillard. As Joan of Arc she was both powerful and vulnerable. From the first moment she makes you feel what she’s going through. And by the end you’re crying with her. It’s only when the applause starts that you can observe her waking from being Joan and becoming Marion again. The applause lasted for 10 minutes and Marion & the other leads came back on stage 3 times.
I added screencaps & a still:

This is actually only a Google translation. At some points it’s not making much sense. But it’s a very interesting read. She talks about the oratorio, performing it back in 2005 and how the last 2 times there were plans to reprise the role it didn’t work out (there are many people involved and it costs a lot of money). She also talked about money and art:
Do you know that in Spain the Government believes that the theater, music and film are not culture but entertainment?
It is very dangerous to make this consideration, it kills art and forces you to work with productivity in mind. Art is not profitable, but much more importantly, a way of life and expression that is a treasure.
And in France cut subsidies to culture …
There will always be artists who find ways to express themselves and to share with the audience. Sometimes crises renew art, I don’t see that lack of money from our government can kill our culture. I don’t think that an artist can’t speak without money. They always find other ways. Even in the worst financial crisis, art and culture never perish.
