I’m somewhat short in time but I simply HAD to update on this. New appearance pictures! Marion Cotillard attended the previously mentioned ‘Meet Marion’ screening organized by Back Stage and The Hollywood Reporter and the Hollywood Film Festival where she was honoured with the Hollywood Breakthrough Award. Congrats again!
Marion Cotillard is gracing the cover of the winter issue of NY Times’ T: Fashion & Beauty magazine. It was published today, Sunday, October 21. Many thanks to Riikka and RoadToOscar for the heads up. See a preview and read the article here. Full-sized scans coming up next week! I can’t wait since this is an abolutely amazing photoshoot!
Here the rest of the scans from Japanese magazines. I think anyone would agree that the Marie Claire photoshoot is nothing but totally amazing! Enjoy!
If any of you speak Japanese would it be possible to translate the recent interviews for the site? That’d be great!
Magnifique Marion Cotillard has been hosting a forum ever since it’s re-opening. I was told and generally had the feeling myself it would be something Marion fans would appreciate. However, nobody beside me has posted anything yet. It now has a much better look thanks to Angelic and I sure hope you will head over and start posting! It’d be great to have discussions with fellow admirers of Marion Cotillard.
Better late than never. I have finally managed to add more media from Marion Cotillard’s appearance at the NRJ Awards on October 1 in Paris, France. Always helpful Paolo recorded the show and sent me the Marion parts. She went up on stage 3 times: to collect the award for Best Look (how sweet that she pulled La Môme-makeup artist on stage to share the award with him) and Frenchie of the Year and together with the La Môme troupe when the film won Top of the Box Office.
Want to meet Marion Cotillard? If you live in LA you might just be as lucky. Back Stage and The Hollywood Reporter are helding a La Vie en Rose screening on October 21, 8 p.m., at Harmony Gold Theatre, 7655 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles. The event will include a screening, followed by a Q&A with Cotillard. Sarah Kuhn, Back Stage West’s film and TV writer, will moderate. Find out more.
Unfortunately, the US release for Pretty Things (Les Jolies Choses) has been further delayed. The DVD is now scheduled to hit the stores November 6. This means US Marion fans know what to spend their money on next month. La Vie en Rose and Innocence will both be released on Region 1 DVD November 13.
As for site updates, please be sure to pay our new family site a visit: Introducing Melanie Laurent. It is an amazing resource for the very talented French actress and Marion costar (Dikkenek).
More awards for Marion Cotillard! The votes for the 2007 NRJ Cine Awards were in and Marion won ‘Frenchie of the year’ and ‘Best Look’ for her turn as Edith Piaf in La Môme – and the film itself won ‘Top Box Office’.
If anyone caught it on TV last night, do you have clips of Marion’s appearance? It will be re-aired this weekend on France’s NRJ12 Saturday at midnight and next week on Wednesday at 0.50 am. Can anybody who gets that channel be on the lookout for Marion and make clips for this site? That’d be amazing!
Here the pictures I’ve been able to find so far:
Marion Cotillard will receive the breakthrough performance award for her work as chanteuse Edith Piaf in “La Vie en rose” at the 19th Palm Springs Film Festival. Thesp will be presented with the nod at in a gala ceremony at the Palm Springs Convention Center on Jan. 5.
“Marion Cotillard delivers a tour de force performance as legendary singer Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose, which is sure to be recognized throughout this year’s awards season,” Festival chairman Earl Greenburg said in a statement. “This is truly one of the year’s breakthrough performances, and we’re delighted to recognize her for this outstanding role.”
Also the always helpful and lovely Mariana has made marion-cotillard.org her Spotlight at her Sarah Polley website. Many THANKS! Be sure to head over and visit this great source on the Canadian actress/director.
However exciting English Marion Cotillard features are they are still in most cases more or less recycling known facts & pictures. But, guess what I found today at the newsstand? The latest issue of Paris Match (September 13-19) has an amazing article on Marion Cotillard.
Although La Vie en Rose yet has to come to South America Marion Cotillard finished her 6-month promotion tour for the film at the end of August in Japan. She spent 6 days at the Park Hyatt Hotel in Tokyo (Lost in Translation anyone?) and apart from attending the Press Conference (which we have pics from) she also 50 interviews, posed for fans in the streets (who know her from Taxi) or sometimes even helped preparing sushi. Paris Match accompanied her and that’s what the article is about. I’ve added the scans and you can watch behind-the-scenes photos in a video on their website or download it from the Video Vault.
I can’t wait to see the pictures she was posing for during this stay in Japan. Or videos of her interviews – e.g the one where the journalist started singing a Piaf song and asked Marion to dance. If you come across any of them can you please share them with us? That’d be amazing!
