Studio Ciné Live – Translated Interview
Ioana sent me the translated interview from the February issue of Studio Ciné Live earlier last month. Here it is now for you all to enjoy! Marion Cotillard talks about the 08 Awards Season and Oscar campaign, winning a César and a Oscar, filming Public Enemies and Nine as well as any possible projects in the future & more.
• Marion Cotillard – No Promo Required
Every day, it’s like the Cannes festival over there!
I never dreamed of a César. As a little girl, I never imagined myself making a speech! But, that evening, I was really happy to be awarded in my home country.
And then, during three weeks of rehearsals, I met Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz, Kate Hudson, Fergie, Judi Dench, Sophia Loren and Daniel Day-Lewis. I realized we were all going to be in the same studio, for two months. And I understood we all had our fears concerning the technique required. Suddenly, instead of exhaustion, I felt euphoria, and it hasn’t left me since.
Since I’m still in the middle of making a musical and fulfilling my childhood dream, my heart is singing!

Translation & original scans coming up soon!
Lady Dior – Making Of & Interview
I’ve made screencaptures of the Making Of & Marion Cotillard interview to be found on LadyDior.com. There are some exceptionally breathtaking shots of Marion to be admired in the videos. The interview can be watched with English subtitles as well.
p.s. The Making Of actually should also help silence the rumour that Marion wasn’t actually on the Eiffel Tower when photographed for the campaign. She clearly was.
Illumination of Champs-Elysées
On a break from filming Nine, Marion Cotillard was present next to the Mayor of Paris Bertrand Delanoë earlier tonight when the lights at the famous Champs-Elysées were illuminated. The lights in celebration of the forthcoming Christmas and New Year festivities were installed on a total of 415 trees along 2 kilometres on the “most beautiful road of the world”. To celebrate France’s presidency in the European Union the lights are in a blue shade this year. As reported by AFP, for two years now, new generation diodes have been used for the Champs-Elysées illumination. Thus the energy costs are reportedly cut by 70 %. A fact which ecology loving Marion Cotillard certainly appreciates. I am currently trying to find good pictures of her at the event. Stay tuned!
Ms. Cotillard was also interviewed on French radio station RTL this morning and RTL have an excerpt of it on their website. She talks about being back home for the afore-mentioned ceremony as well as the infamous 9/11 comments. I’m currently working on getting an accurate translation so there’s no need to start asking for it.
First Interview after Oscar win
The July/August issue of French magazine ‘Psychologies’ features Marion Cotillard on the cover! See. While the picture itself is not new the interview is! Not only is this the first interview with Marion Cotillard after her Oscar win – but as the article implies it will probably remain the only one for the time being. It’s a lovely and informative interview so be sure to check it out! Many thanks for the heads up goes to JV and Ioana.
If anyone would like to work on an English translation of the article for this site’s Press archive, please let me know.
