To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Earth Day today Vanity Fair asked environmentally conscious individuals, among them Marion, to make a wish for a greener world. Here’s the video:

First some additional pictures of Marion Cotillard at the ‘Nine‘ screening in Rome.
Today, Marion Cotillard will (probably) attend the 15th annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards ceremony as she’s nominated for Best Supporting Actress. Red carpet arrivials will begin at 4PM (PT). The Critics’ Choice Awards ceremony will begin promptly at 6PM (PT) and will be broadcast live on VH1 Television Network at 9PM ET/PT. Details at Locate TV. Then, don’t forget the Golde Globe Awards on Sunday. More on that later.
Upcoming Talk Shows:
The recently announced talk show appearance on Live with Regis and Kelly was quietly cancelled. It seems that it was impossible for Marion to go on the show since she was in Los Angeles at business meetings. Don’t forget to watch the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson this coming Monday evening. And a new talk show appearance to note down in your diaries: Marion Cotillard is scheduled to appear on the Tavis Smiley show,
Tuesday, January 19 Thursday, January 21 on PBS. Check your local listings because not all PBS stations carry Tavis’ show and if they do, the times and sometimes dates vary. Many thanks Pushpak for the info.
For both the upcoming event and talk show appearances, I’d appreciate any help with getting good quality screencaptures and video clips for the site. Thank you!
This & that:
Some background information of what went on at last Saturday’s Dior Cocktail party:
“Nine” producer Marc Platt unveiled a video she shot for her “Nine” number “Take It All.” “You may all know Marion is an Oscar-winning actress, but what you may not know is that she’s a talented music video artist,” he deadpanned. The clip showed bits from the film, rehearsal footage and outtakes of Cotillard in the recording studio. “Aaagh, this is so embarrassing,” she laughed as the small crowd, including directors Jim Sheridan, David Lynch and Michael Mann, and Tobey and Jennifer Maguire, broke into applause. Although tout Hollywood seems to want to work with her, Cotillard says she’s next turning her attention to a personal documentary on conserving the forestlands, which she was inspired to do after some friends raised her awareness about deforestation.

But if you do, and your stock is rising, it can happen. Bullock is one example. Marion Cotillard, an Oscar winner currently starring in “Nine,” is another. She’s a producer for the upcoming “The Second Coming.”
“What’s interesting is that time has changed, and now you, as an actor, can find a good story by yourself and make it happen,” Cotillard said, “like Charlize Theron with ‘Monster.’ . . . There are many ways to find roles if it doesn’t come to you from a director or producer. More and more actors are producing their movies. Maybe it’s because of that – they aren’t happy enough with the offers they get, or they want to do something else that directors will not think that they’re able to do.”
Many thanks Aurore for the following heads-up. Hugh Grant visited Le Grand Journal to promote his new movie ‘Did You Hear About the Morgans?‘ in France. During the comedy re-cap of recent news and gossip called Le Petit Journal there was a funny skit featuring Marion Cotillard. Did you think it funny how so many famous Hollywood men posed with Marion for photographs at the recent Dior Cocktail Party in her honour? Well, that’s what they thought as well, and they found a way for everyday citizens (and Hugh Grant) to do the same.
I think by now we’ve all seen Rob Marshall singing Marion’s praises at the Palm Springs Film Festival Awards Ceremony so I bring you a quote from Marion about the ‘Nine‘ director:
That human empathy defined Rob Marshall’s relationships with the actresses who star in “Nine.”
“I’ve worked with many directors you could really trust,” Marion Cotillard says. “The thing with Rob is, it’s the first time I worked with a director in an atmosphere of love.” Even on a massive set, she says, when Marshall had to use a microphone system to talk to the cast, “It was always this sweet and nice voice that he had. You know sometimes, when you talk about sweetness, it’s not always positive. But with Rob, he really is the sweetest director I’ve ever worked with. And that’s how he gets what he wants.”

Remember the ‘Nine‘ Luncheon at New York’s Per Se Restaurant on December 14, 2009 – the day after appearing on the Evening News on French TV and the day before the movie’s New York Premiere? Thanks to Nadine we have footage from it. ET aired a short interview with Marion during the luncheon together with some footage of the ‘Nine‘ New York premiere (more on that event later).
She also told a journalist about her plans for the holidays during the luncheon:
Marion Cotillard told me she’s spending Christmas in Brittany seeing her 100-year-old grandmother. Then it’s off to Tanzania for a week with her boyfriend before journeying to Los Angeles for awards season.
And the lunch — it didn’t end until 4pm, at which point Marion Cotillard just about fainted from jet lag, Nicole Kidman went off to do interviews and several people went home to nap or change and get ready for Ryan Kavanagh’s cozy dinner at the Pierre Hotel’s new lounge for his Relativity Media.
I certainly hope Marion is currently enjoying her week in Africa and able to relax from all the ‘Nine‘ and ‘Le dernier vol‘ promotion frenzy!
“Each time is unique in its own way. It was my dream as a kid to be in an American musical. It’s an amazing movie and a very special movie, and I hope that people will be made more aware of it by this.”
“The light of my dream is still on and it’s really shining bright today.”
“I feel so good! I’m so, so, so happy! I’m so happy for the movie and I’m so happy for all the people who worked so hard with us because this film really was an ensemble job that we all did. We can’t separate anyone from all these nominations … This nomination is very special. It was my dream when I was a kid to do a musical, so already to be part of this adventure – especially with Rob Marshall who is a genius … This [is] a dream that became true for me and a reality.”
Finally, pictures from Tuesday’s silent gathering in support of Aung San Suu Kyi have been added to the gallery. There are a few HQ pictures as well as many regular sized ones. Enjoy!
Listen to a short interview (in French) with Marion from the event on RTL.fr.
I’ve been supporting this woman for 14 years now. I was really touched when I discovered her life and what she had to go through. She’s a wonder to me, her purity, she’s someone who’s not afraid. She’s accepted to not being able to see her husband, her children, for the sake of her people. That’s something extraordinary! Information we have about her, her health condition, her…, are frightening. And if these military people, who are deaf and blind, people who are beyond sense and law… if there’s a moment to help reverse this, I believe in it. I believe that bringing as many people as possible in this country up to date on who this woman is and what is going on in that country is not in vain. It’s a start to get her out of prison.
Translation by myself. Please correct me if there are mistakes!!
“I love New York and I would love to have a place here one day,” said Dior face Cotillard, who flew into the city just for a day. “This is the place where I can really bike, because I actually enjoy walking in Paris. I love riding on the Hudson or downtown but I’ll make my way to Central Park eventually. And at first I was scared of all the traffic, but it was kind of easy and amazing.”

In case you haven’t noticed yet, the gallery for the Bike in Style Challenge Ceremony has been filled with loads of HQ pictures over the last few days.
I’ve added a new article from French website PurePeople to the press archive: Incroyable Marion Cotillard. Basically it’s an article with quotes from other people about Marion, how she’s got Hollywood at her feet. Here the translated quotes:
Harvey Weinstein (producer of Nine)
Marion is a great professional! She’s become my friend because I was captivated by her talent but also and above all by her dogged determination at work and her unconditional involvement in her films. (For the presentation of Nine at Cannes,) I had chosen Penélope Cruz to be present for the screening of some scenes of the film to journalists, but she had to cancel at the last minute because she had food poisoning. Without hesitation, Marion made herself available to replace her. That’s Marion!
She has several strings to her bow. She’s become as powerful as any other Hollywood actress.
Leonardo DiCaprio (costar in the upcoming Inception)
Marion is one of the most talented actresses of our generation in my opinion. She radiates such strength and such energy in everything she does that one can have nothing but admiration for her.
Russell Crowe (costar in 2006′s A Good Year)
For A Good Year, it was like filming next to an angel each day.
On May 22 Dior and ELLE magazine hosted a dinner in honor of Marion Cotillard at the Hotel du Cap Eden-Roc. The hotel’s furnishings were all covered in red Chinese silk and Marion, who attended together with Guillaume Canet, matched the Asian flare of the event by wearing a crimson bustier dress. Here some of her quotes:
Cannes is every bit as glamorous as the Oscars
Being Lady Dior is fabulous. I meet beautiful people and go to amazing parties. But most of all I love John; he’s so unique and creative. I like people who take risks, and he’s the boldest designer of them all.
I get to wear amazing Dior dresses, but I don’t get to keep them,” she smiled. “They all go into this magical archive!
• La Vie en Cotillard, Fashion Week Daily, May 26
I added a ‘Public Enemies‘ background story from the San Francisco Chronicle to the press archive. The middle part is an interview with Marion. She talks about her Johnny Depp’s characters first meeting, working with Johnny and of course the American accent. Be sure to read it!
An exclusive behind the scenes featurette (13 minutes) PUBLIC ENEMIES: HBO FIRST LOOK will air on HBO starting Tuesday, June 18, 2009. See the complete schedule here. Please, could anyone in the US be on the lookout for any Marion footage in this feature? If there is anything new we would be so happy to have a clip for the video archive here on the site, thank you!
Oh, and Ken Watanabe and Tom Hardy joined the incredible cast for Marion’s new movie ‘Inception‘.
“My fairy tale ends in few hours,” laughed Marion Cotillard, who arrived on the arm of John Galliano clad in a blush Dior column. “I have to be in the airport as soon as the dress and diamonds come off.” – Marion Cotillard at the Costume Institute Gala
