Marion Cotillard’s taped segment on the Chelsea Lately Show aired last night & she looked gorgeous. The interview was really short – just over 6 minutes only – and while there were hints of serious answers it is definitely a comedy show and was mostly geared towards generating laughter. Marion was a good sport though and seemed to enjoy herself. Enjoy!

‘Grand Public’ a, I think new, show that brings in-depth reports about all things culture on French TV channel France 2 aired a segment about Marion Cotillard in Barcelona last Thursday night. I added the clip as well as HQ screencaptures on Friday but forgot to post about it.
They showed how big the anticipation was in Barcelona by showing news clippings and posters for the show. However, the people in charge are cited who say that they didn’t want a lot of mediazation or attention so they were happy it only started in the few days before the show. The report included some footage of Marion and the other performers getting ready before the show.
The report later laid out how important this role was to Marion, how close to her heart. After having been handed the show by her mother, so to speak, in 2005 (they included a few seconds of footage with her mother as Joan of arc) she wanted to reprise it again. So when the people in Barcelona were organizing their celebration of the 600th anniversary of Joan of Arc’s birth and wanted to include Honegger’s oratorio but were lacking a main actress then heard that Marion was interested they jumped at the chance. Apparently, there really doesn’t exist any footage of Marion in the play back in 2005 as they only showed stills and had a reporter recall how it was. He said that she was exceptional and that it showed what she could do. If she could do Joan of Arc in this then she could do Edith Piaf. Which she, as we all know, did. Now, a Hollywood star she’s still capable of doing it.
Another reporter said that it’s a challenging part, when you do it right it can be the highlight of your career but when you mess it up it can be the worst experience ever, even put you out of business.
So seeing again the overwhelming approval of the audience by their (10 min) long applause and seeing an emotional and overwhelmed but satisfied Marion backstage after the show, hugging the producer and talking to the press was quite moving to watch.
I have some more articles & TV reports about this but have to get it ready (in English) first.
I added the video and HD screencaptures of Marion’s appearance on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson last night – though it was recorded 2 weeks ago on December 6. It was as funny as those Ferguson interviews get, Marion was at ease and played along with his jokes and was goofing around. It’s really entertaining to watch – though actual content-wise there’s nothing new. Oh, and she looked really chic in that outfit and the bright red lipstick.

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.

Young Hollywood uploaded the video of when Marion Cotillard and Matthias Schoenaerts visited them to promote Rust and Bone and talked about their favourite American things. Enjoy!
French TV channel TF1 used Marion Cotillard’s first public appearance in her home country since the Cannes Film Festival in May for a report during 50mn inside about her status as a star and actress, analyzing her choices such as taking a break from acting while showing footage of various events from this and past years. They pointed out that promoting Rust and Bone publicly and on talk shows could well lead to a new Oscar nomination. Furthermore, they discussed her collaboration with Dior. All in all, they said Marion Cotillard does what she wants – she’s thus an actrice libre – a free actress. Thanks to Luise for the clip!
By the way, gossip column Page Six from the New York Post reports that Marion, while making it to Thursday’s Rust and Bone screening in New York, was also delayed because of the snow storm. So she spent Wednesday night in a hotel in Detroit. I hope her lost luggage has since turned up.

This totally slipped my mind. But on October 19 Dior Magazine announced the new Lady Dior campaign featuring Marion Cotillard. After a number of world cities Lady Dior has now visited the Hamptons and photographer Jean-Baptiste Mondino captured her on the beach. Ads started appearing on the last October weekend in magazines such as Japanese Vogue, Elle, 25 Ans, Numéro, Italian Vogue, Vanity Fair U.S., Town & Country, Interview, American and French Elles and Madame Figaro (source).
As previously announced, Marion Cotillard attended the Unveiling of the Dior Christmas Window Displays at the Parisian department store Printemps Haussmann yesterday early evening.
At the event she also talked about Christmas and travelling:
It was a bit of a battle for my mother. I didn’t really like Christmas when I was little, so I didn’t want any gifts, so the tradition was my mother figuring out how she was going to get me to pick something. Gifts are something I prefer to give. It’s always nice to get one, but I like searching for a present, I like thinking of a person and finding that special something that they are going to like.
Well, you know, you sleep, you rest. People live in terrible situations. Traveling is not that terrible.

• Marion Cotillard: From New York to Paris, WWD, November 9, 2012
On her way from the US west coast to France, Marion Cotillard attended a screening of ‘Rust and Bone‘ (De rouille et d’os) at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema in New York on Thursday evening. It was hosted by The Cinema Society with Dior & Vanity Fair. She was wearing a transparent Christian Dior Spring 2013 dress with black pointy Dior heels (which reportedly caused some problems). Co-star Matthias Schoenaerts & director Jacques Audiard were delayed due to the snowstorm and only arrived in time for the after party at Indochine – which Marion however had to miss since she had to catch her flight to France.
On the red carpet Vulture asked Marion Cotillard about how she feels when she hears the Katy Perry song ‘Firework’:
