2012 Telluride Film Festival

Marion Cotillard arrived in Telluride, Colorado (US) yesterday after reportedly taking four flights to get from Paris to Telluride (via Los Angeles). Despite being exhausted from the travel she charmed everyone. She attended an intimate filmmakers Dinner hosted by Sony Picture Classics (US distributor for ‘Rust & Bone‘) and was awarded the Silver Medallion for her performance.

TELLURIDE: Just left intimate SPC dinner w/ Marion Cotillard, Gael Garcia Bernal, and Dennis Quaid. Off to outdoor screening of Bernal’s NO.
PS: Marion Cotillard, even on no sleep and after taking five flights to get from Paris to Telluride, is still drop dead gorgeous. My God.

At SPC’s annual filmmakers dinner Saturday night, Rust & Bone star Marion Cotillard attended. Besides Best Actress Oscar talk, she received a special festival tribute today which she told me was quite an honor.

At one table, journalists switched seats throughout the dinner in order to converse with Bernal and Cotillard, who were seated at opposite ends. Upon arriving, the two European stars hugged and proudly showed each other iPhone pics of their young children. Both had to leave a little early — Cotillard to receive her career tribute, which was moderated by THR film critic Todd McCarthy, and Bernal, with Larrain, to introduce the second screening of No, which was held at a nearby outdoor venue. … Cotillard, meanwhile, talked about how difficult she has found it to learn other languages — especially Italian — for films that she has made outside of France.
