Empire on Location ‘Macbeth’

Empire on Location ‘Macbeth’

The June issue of British movie Magazine Empire features a new still with Marion Cotillard and Michael Fassbender from when they visited the set of ‘Macbeth‘ in Godalming, Surrey (UK). Producer Iain Canning says about the duo:

They have a physicality and an intensity of performance that carries through the verse and the emotional part of the film. To be able to bring together two of the finest actors of a generation has been one of the joys of developing this project.

We added our own high quality scan so you can read the rest of the location report.

Marion in magazines 2013 – early 2014

Marion in magazines 2013 – early 2014

2013 saw Marion Cotillard grace the cover of several French and international magazines. The release of two of her movies in Europe, ‘Blood Ties’ and ‘The Immigrant’, first in Cannes and then in the whole of France later in the year, earned her some attention from the media. While most of the coverage was in France, Marion was also on the cover of US ELLE in 2013, coinciding with the award she received from the magazine in late October.

We have finished adding all the scans from 2013 which featured brand new shoots and interviews.

With ‘The Immigrant’ having been released in Italy yesterday, the Italian press has been featuring Marion as well, providing us with these early 2014 scans from Gioia magazine and quick appearances in newspapers.

Both of Marion’s films should be released worldwide throughout the first half of this year.

Portraits of the leading ladies of film in Bafta exhibition

Portraits of the leading ladies of film in Bafta exhibition

They are some of the most glamorous and successful leading ladies of film.

Marion Cotillard, Nicole Kidman, and Scarlett Johansson are among stars snapped by London photographer Andy Gotts for a project started by Bafta eight years ago to record all living performers ever nominated for its movie honours.

The portraits are among 100 at an exhibition opening on Monday ahead of the Bafta awards on February 16. It also features Juliette Binoche, Jodie Foster, Al Pacino, Johnny Depp, Robert De Niro, and Clint Eastwood. Gotts told how he was initially given just 12 minutes with Brad Pitt on the set of Troy: “But he said, ‘Take as long as you want.’ One and a half hours later we were arm-wrestling.” Pitt handed Gotts his phone with George Clooney on the line. Clooney invited the photographer to his villa in Italy, where Gotts found him feeding the ducks on Lake Como.

Gotts, 42, has taken pictures of more than half of about 800 candidates.

The exhibition, Behind The Mask, runs from January 20-February 7 at Somerset House, before a smaller display at Bafta HQ in Piccadilly. Limited edition prints are on sale to support Bafta’s charitable work.

BAFTA will project every image from the series onto the façade of its headquarters at 195 Piccadilly, London during the weekend of the EE British Academy Film Awards. Go the Exhibition Homepage.

Marion Cotillard Scans from 1999

Marion Cotillard Scans from 1999

I know I’ve promised it a while ago and it’s long overdue. But I started scanning my pre-2007 Marion Cotillard magazine collection. After 1996 I also added all I had from 1999. ‘Taxi‘ had been a great hit the year before and Marion just received her first César nomination for ‘Most Promising Actress’ (her reaction: “I felt like saying ‘Wait! I haven’t yet shown all I wanted’, Ciné Live) and was promoting her smaller movies ‘Furia‘, ‘La Guerre dans le Haut Pays‘ and ‘Du bleu jusqu’en Amérique‘. Throughout the year her passion for acting dominated each interview.

I’ve always wanted to be an actress but I never really asked myself why. I know now that I have this career for two major reasons: First, because it allows me to take such pleasure in work that I happen to be overwhelmed with happiness while acting. And second, because this job puts me the most in danger in relation to my emotional past.
– from Studio

She was also part of The Class of 2000 by Paris Match. Guillaume Canet was too but he was away filming so he’s not on the picture. Though she did not win the César that year, they were certainly right. At the time she confided the story of auditioning for Taxi. She had been in a floating period, measuring the difficulty of succeeding in cinema but not yet discouraged. She told herself:

I’m 23 years old. If I don’t get the role I’ll consider doing something else. You have nothing to lose, pull out everything you have for the audition.

Although the first audition went well she thought she lost the part after she was nervous when she met producer Luc Besson.

Talking to Elle she said the best thing about the success of ‘Taxi‘ was that she now had a choice which projects she wanted to accept. Saying no however was very difficult so she always read the whole screenplays, waiting for something extraordinary at the end. She was looking for real actor-directors, asking “Why not admit that an actress can choose a director rather than vice versa?” She started taking Danish lessons after having seen ‘Festen‘, planned on meeting Thomas Winterberg during the Cannes Film Festival and also started learning Spanish after having seen ‘Los amantes del círculo polar‘ by Julio Medem. Loving her job she nurtured her need for cinematic culture by going to the Cinematheque.

I take notes anywhere: on the street, in my bed, in the middle of the night. I’m demanding of myself, but also of my co-stars. Acting with a great actor is a dream. With a bad one it’s atrocious.

She was also photographed for Karl Lagerfeld’s portfolio about the dream roles of actresses:

I would like to be offered to play Count Dracula as a consolation for not having been in ‘The Idiots’ by Lars Von Trier.

Talking to Ciné Live she remembered spending a day in a wheelchair in Paris with her co-star Samuel Jouy preparing for ‘De bleu jusqu’en Amérique‘.

Others looking at us, us being dependent on others – we had a unique experience. The movie is a celebration of life and hope.

She reveals about her big screen debut in ‘L’histoire du garçon qui voulait qu’on l’embrasse‘ that she did it without preparation, instinctive and spontaneous, praises Arnaud Desplechin (“It was complete happiness! He takes you by the hand and walks by your side”) and Luc Besson (“He is a killer, like Cukor he reveals in his actors both their masculinity and feminity, the only combination that can universally be touching”). She called Juliette Binoche “Romy Schneider’s heiress”, dreamt of acting along side Elodie Bouchez and Hélène de Fougerolles and was brought to tears when she remembered the magical encounter with Jeanne Moreau during a chaotic shooting (Lisa). And then went straight to laughing:

Actually, acting brings me to non-sexual orgasms! [then resuming, thoughtful and wise] Approaching yourself is the most beautiful and most dangerous thing.
