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.
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!

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!

US fans be sure to tune into The Tonight Show With Jay Leno tonight, as Marion will be a guest on the show. I believe she will be promoting Rust & Bone, which is released in the US on November 23rd.
We’ll be on the lookout for a video to share with you asap after.
Relaxnews is reporting that Marion Cotillard will be unveiling the Christmas Window Display at the Parisian Department Store Printemps on November 9. This year, Dior is responsible for the decoration of the store’s windows. It will be inspired by the City of Light and is thus called ‘Inspirations parisiennes’ (Parisian Inspirations).
Passers-by can admire 11 different “fashion” windows during the Holiday Season. Emblematic places of Paris, such as Avenue Montaigne (where Dior is situated) and the Opera, will be staged. The display includes 74 dolls, especially created by the Dior workshops. “There are 12 different models, each faithfully representing iconic collections of Dior Haute Couture, from tailor Bar 1947 to AH Collection 2012 by Raf Simons,” explains the fashion house.
Awards season is now upon us, and so the campaigning begins! The first ‘For Your Consideration’ advert for Rust & Bone has recently been shared on AwardsDaily.com, and you can now also view it in our Gallery. Marion is of course being campaigned for Best Actress for her role as Stéphanie in Rust & Bone, and numerous award sites are predicting nominations for Ms Cotillard. Let’s cross our fingers….!
Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton are presented with BFI Fellowships as “Beasts of the Southern Wild” and Chile’s “No” are also honored.
Jacques Audiard’s Rust and Bone won best film at a special standalone ceremony on the penultimate evening of this year’s BFI London Film Festival.
It is the first time a best film award has been decided on by a jury from a field of 12 Competition titles.The films were selected by BFI head of exhibition and festival director Clare Stewart together with the fest’s programming team.
The jury, headed by president David Hare — screenwriter, playwright, film and theatre director — also boasted input from: veteran Hong Kong film producer Nansun Shi; Argentine director Pablo Trapero; Victoria Pearman, producer of Crossfire Hurricane and president of Mick Jagger’s Jagged films; and the British actress Romola Garai.
Hare said: “Jacques Audiard has a unique handwriting, made up of music, montage, writing, photography, sound, visual design and acting. He is one of only a very small handful of filmmakers in the world who has mastered, and can integrate, every element of the process to one purpose: making, in Rust and Bone, a film full of heart, violence and love.”
Audiard’s film stars Marion Cotillard and Matthias Schoenaerts and details the love between a man and a woman who has suffered a terrible accident. It played in Competition during the Festival de Cannes, but walked away from that event empty-handed.
As mentioned in the last update Harper’s Bazaar held their Women of the Year awards at Claridge’s Hotel in London last night. Marion Cotillard was named ‘International Actor of the Year’ for her critically acclaimed performance in Rust and Bone. Congratulations!
The award was presented to her by Ralph Fiennes who said Marion Cotillard broke his heart in La Vie En Rose (source). ‘British Actor of the Year’ Emily Blunt – who was photographed with Marion – declared stalker tendancies towards her girl crush Marion Cotillard (source).
Marion Cotillard was wearing a Spring 2013 Dior dress with a navy silk panel and a broad black tulle skirt, white Dior heels and a diamond necklace. I simply love her makeup & dreamy, somewhat messy hairdo. It’s flawless! I will add pictures as soon as I have time!

Marion Cotillard – International Actor of the Year

Marion Cotillard graces the cover of the December issue of UK’s Harper’s Bazaar after she received the International Actor of the Year award from them during the Women of the Year 2012 Awards last night. Check out a preview & a behind the scenes video.
When Marion Cotillard arrived on Bazaar’s cover shoot in LA, it was clear she was approaching the project with as much professionalism as she would if arriving on a Hollywood film set.
The concept of the day? High glamour, couture, rich colour, diamonds, luxurious fabrics, and a powerful, graceful elegance befitting Bazaar’s Women of the Year December issue; the edition in which we celebrate those women (and men) who have touched our lives and made an impact on our world in 2012.
With slicked back hair and smoky eyes, Cotillard models bespoke gowns from Giambattista Valli to Dior. It took the French star just minutes after greeting the team on the day – photographer Ben Hassett, stylist Julia von Boehm and make-up artist Kara Yoshimoto Bua – to slip naturally into the role of fashion muse.
But, while the Academy Award winner undoubtedly has had plenty of experience to draw from for the part – Cotillard is ambassador to the fashion house Dior and was the first to wear Raf Simons’ debut couture collection on the red carpet – she is just as at home in ‘the unpretentious cream sloppy sweater (she doesn’t know or care who by) and brown fedora’ she meets us in when interviewed the day after the shoot in LA’s Chateau Marmot.
With Bazaar writer Lorien Haynes, Cotillard discusses the emotional intensity asked of her to play her latest part in the critically acclaimed Rust and Bone (and Oscar rumours are already swirling), and the challenges of balancing a career as an A-list actor with her latest role as mother to 18-month-old Marcel and her relationship with actor and director Guillame Canet, Marcel’s father, which brings Cotillard to tears.

Episode 4 of the Lady Dior Web Documentary is here! Sadly, there’s no new footage of Marion as it’s an animated short film. But no worries, it’s very exciting as it features an orginal song by her! Directed by Eliott Bliss, design by Slim and music by Yodelice.
In a film directed exclusively for the House of Dior, and to the tune of an original song written and sung by Marion Cotillard, the history of Dior comes alive in pictures.
