On the cover of Telegraph Magazine
Marion Cotillard graced the cover of Daily Telegraph Saturday insert Telegraph Magazine on June 20. Thanks to Lorna I’ve added the scans to the gallery. Please also take time to read the in-depth portrait/interview either on the scans or in our press archive, it’s really well worth your time!
• Dark Star, Telegraph Magazine, June 20
She’s a great and real person who doesn’t fall into the movie stardom cliché. She is an artist first and foremost, and I’ve never seen anyone work so hard in my life. When you went into the rehearsal room, there she would be, working and working. She was just living the role. Daniel Day-Lewis was absolutely blown away by her, as I was, as anybody was.
- Rob Marshall, director of Nine

BlackBook Magazine Pictures & interview
While I’m awaiting the arrival of my own copy of the new BlackBook Magazine that my friend in the US is buying for me the magazine’s website released the very interesting interview with Marion Cotillard and the pictures from the inside of the magazine. I’ve added those and some outtakes to the site’s gallery. Merci Marion-Cotillard.fr for the info on how to find them.
The New York photo shoot took place May 5, the day after the Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Be sure to read this very insightful interview.

Marion graces the cover of Elle magazine
Marion Cotillard is featured on the cover of the new issue of French Elle magazine, which appears on newsstands tomorrow. I had to look twice to be sure that this is really Marion but this is nothing short of a spectacular photoshoot! I’ve added previews to the gallery. The article is to promote The Lady Noire Affair and Public Enemies and I guess we know now why Elle magazine is co-hosting the dinner in honor of Marion during the Cannes Film Festival on May 22. Stay tuned for HQ scans and an English translation of the interview!
By the way, the new Guillaume Canet-directed project on Marion’s schedule is indeed called ‘Les Petits Mouchoirs‘. “He envisioned me as this lively girl – not necessarily the most stable – but who’ trying to find her place in the world. And I liked that very much!” (Il m’a imaginée dans la peau d’une fille à vif, pas vraiment la plus stable du monde, mais qui essaie de trouver sa place. Et ça me plaît beaucoup !)

• 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!
