Marion Cotillard quite unlike we’ve seen her before! ‘Le Débarquement‘ the huge live comedy event on Canal+ this past Friday evening by Jean Dujardin, Guillaume Canet, Gilles Lellouche together with Alex Lutz, Laurent Lafitte and Nicolas Bedos and many more actors & some guests also featured a number of pre-recorded segments. One involved Monsieur Picco – played by Guillaume Canet – seeking treatment of a beauty surgeon – played by Jean Dujardin – at a private clinic for his dear wife Nathalie because she’s suffering from a rare kind of shyness and afraid of being seen in public. Little wonder because she’s actually a bear. Cut to 16 months later – and Nathalie now is still a bear but looks like Marion Cotillard! It seems he’s not as happy with the result as expected – he fears he has now lost his wife – but she’s more than happy once she’s got her honey pot!
Marion Cotillard was on Conan last night to promote ‘Rust and Bone‘. She talked about her love of redheads, having been raised by her mother to talk to outcasts at school because they could be the most interesting person, loving American comedies and ‘losing’ it when meeting people such as Will Ferrell or John C. Reilly, W Magazine photoshoot, having been allowed to express themselves artistically on the walls as a child and the movie of course. I loved it – Marion really has an adorable sense of self-depricating humour.
She was wearing a sequin plaid chartreuse Erdem dress embellished with floral appliqués and appeeared to have cut her hair. I love that look on her – and I’m happy to stand corrected when we next see her – but in my opinion the hair isn’t flowing as naturally as it did when she had that length before and we all know how she likes to experiment with her hairdo so I think it’s only some kind of wig. What do you think?

I added loads of additional stills of Marion Cotillard in ‘Rust & Bone‘ (De rouille et d’os). Some of those are spoilery which is probably why they were only released after the movie came out on DVD & Blu-ray in France. The movie is currently screening in the US in New York & Los Angeles and will get a wider release tomorrow. On January 10 it will open in Germany. I also added 6 more subtitled video clips to the archive. There are now 10 clips. Enjoy – but if you haven’t seen the movie yet, I fear watching them all will spoil things too much.

Today begins Florence Cassez’s 8th year of imprisonement in Mexico. Marion Cotillard is one of her supportes who believe that she’s innocent. Back in April she visited her in her prison in Tepepan and it was reported that she frequently talks to her on the phone. On Thursday, Marion Cotillard together with France’s first lady Valérie Trierweiler and journalist and news anchor Mélissa Theuriau lent their support to Florence Cassez by attending the opening of an exhibition of her paintings – made in prison – together with her parents and her lawyer at the town hall of the 12th district in Paris. Marion Cotillard spoke to Canal+:
I’ve always been convinced that she’s innocent – from the beginning. I couldn’t really explain why. And then I really studied her file and I realized that there was nothing in the file that hold up. We are both the same age, so I think… Well, I don’t know if this is what touched me… I saw pictures of her and something happened, I can’t really explain what but she’s a very dear friend now. I just can’t wait for her to be released.

I added HQ screencaptures and the clips of Marion Cotillard on the Popcorn show with Rolling Stone movie critic Peter Travers. It looks like this, the Charlie Rose show & the MTV interviews were all taped on the Monday before the Times Talk. Anyway, I love this interview. The topics are both serious and interesting while at the same time there are questions to lighten up the mood. Peter Travers seemed to be very familiar with Marion’s career – which is of course a bonus – and he also asked her about the Hawskley Workman collaboration. As he makes his guests sing a little snippet of a song that means something to them Marion Cotillard beautifully sang a line from Elvis’ Fools Rush In, which she sings to her son to put him to sleep.
