Weekend of Press Junkets and Q&As
After flying in from London and appearing on the Jay Leno Show last week but before attending the US Gala Premiere of ‘Rust & Bone‘ at the AFI Fest on Monday, Marion Cotillard (and co-star Matthias Schoenaerts, director Jacques Audiard and co-writer Thomas Bidegain) spent a weekend promoting the movie at press junkets and during Q&As at industry screenings.
HitFix.com were among those interviewing Marion Cotillard on Saturday morning and will later post their interview.
Later that day, there was a SAG AFTRA screening at the Harmony Gold theater. During the Q&A she praised Chris Nolan and said “When it’s meant to be, love will find a way.” (Sources on Twitter: Serena Orrego, Grégoire Swan, Ana Parsons, Satu Makeda, Logan McPeak, Patricia Gold and Josh the Intern)
Then, on Sunday, there was another Q&A held by the Academy of Motion Pictures and Sciences at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater:

Various ‘Rust and Bone’ Promotion
As the US release of ‘Rust and Bone‘ (De rouille et d’os) is approaching – November 23 in New York and December 6 in Los Angeles – Sony Classics updated the official movie site with actual content last week. It looks great, so be sure to visit!
Marion Cotillard taped 2 talk show appearances (Chelsea Lately and Craig Ferguson) this Tuesday. However, they weren’t aired as it was election day in the US. My guess is they made use of a free day to get her on tape while she was still in the States – she’s expected back in France tomorrow and will later head to Barcelona, Spain – but will air the interviews closer to the release of the movie. The Craig Ferguson interview is actually scheduled to air on November 20. I’ll keep my eyes open for the Chelsea Lately air date.
In the mean time some various promotion material from recent days:
• ‘Rust and Bone’ Star Marion Cotillard on Juggling Family, Career, The Hollywood Reporter, November 6
BBC Radio 4 • October 31, 2012 • talking to Kirsty Lang about Rust and Bone on ‘Front Row Daily’

AFI Fest: ‘Rust and Bone’ Premiere & Tribute to Marion Cotillard
Luise and I added some pictures of Marion Cotillard dressed in Dior with Chopard jewellery at last night’s US gala premiere of ‘Rust and Bone‘ (De rouille et d’os) during the AFI Fest. Before the screening there was also a tribute to Marion Cotillard and her career. Watch part of it below. I also added some screencaps from her red carpet interview as well as pictures from the after party.
After a reel of footage highlighting the best films of her career thus far, the radiant Marion Cotillard graced the stage for a quick conversation before the curtain rose for her latest contribution to French Cinema, Rust and Bone. She humbly admitted that it was “super weird” and almost “schizophrenic” to see footage of herself spliced together because the characters are all her, yet they’re all different people. When asked about the path that led to her success in acting, she confided in a time when she considered leaving the profession to pursue something else, but meeting with Tim Burton and getting a role in Big Fish convinced her to stick with it. And it’s a good thing she did. Since then, she’s secured roles she feels passionate about, in both French and American films, leading her to an Oscar win for Best Actress for La vie en rose (2007), and teaming up with the likes of Michael Mann, Woody Allen, Steven Soderburgh, and Christopher Nolan along the way. After the brief sit-down, director Jacques Audiard took the stage to introduce his cast, including Matthias Schoenaerts, who, as if in character, appropriately cued the feature presentation with an exclamation of, “Open the curtain, show the movie.”

Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards
I added some pictures and screencaptures of Marion Cotillard at last Wednesday’s Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards. Part of her acceptance speech and an interview backstage was released in a video on the magazine’s website.

Video & Pictures of Marion Cotillard on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno
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.

‘Rust and Bone’ UK Promotion
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!

Lady Dior Web Documentary – Episode 4: Lily’s Body
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.
Lady Dior Web Documentary – Episode 3: Métamorphose
I will catch up on all the London Film Festival events as soon as I get some free time. In the meantime, good news:
The third episode of the new Lady Dior Documentary is online! It shows Marion Cotillard being photographed for the new Dior magazine. She’s wearing vintage Dior so it’s the perfect opportunity to merge the fashion house’s history with Marion’s. There’s also footage from 2 other Dior photoshoots: one on a ferry in New York (used in 7000 and L’Express Styles) and another one indoors (used in Paris Match and Madame Figaro). There’s also napping Marion and her going to events.
It’s time for an exclusive photo shoot for Dior, and Marion Cotillard slips into some of the finest haute couture creations by Christian Dior himself.

Lady Dior Web Documentary – Episode 2: Up and Up
The second episode of the new Lady Dior Documentary is online! Apart from continuing to show the process of creating Marion’s dream robe and some history of the house Dior we see Marion jumping around & dancing at a photoshoot. I wonder when we’ll see the pictures taken that day. And at the end we even hear her sing.
From the workshops at 30, avenue Montaigne to the markets of the Palais des Festivals in Cannes, Marion Cotillard invites us into her fairytale life and continues to write the story of a passion-filled union between fashion and cinema.
