Marion Cotillard Was Considered ‘Very Strange’ in School

"Two Days, One Night" - UK Premiere

The beautiful French actress, Marion Cotillard, won an Academy Award playing the role of Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose back in 2008, has over 70 acting credits to her name, and is one of the highest paid non-American female actresses in Hollywood.  She seems drawn to playing ‘complex, tortured women.’  In an interview with The Guardian, she explains why that might be:

“I’ve always felt an outcast.  There is something strange about me. I don’t ever feel at ease in a group of people. I have to fight hard to overcome my fears.”

She goes on to explain that she never fit in at school:

“I couldn’t identify with anyone. At school I was considered very strange. I didn’t understand the relationships between people.”

Cotillard is known for her complete immersion into her roles and suffered from ongoing depression and loneliness for a whole 8 months following her portrayal of Edith Piaf.  She now has a young son, and realizes this full immersion doesn’t translate well into motherhood.  About her upcoming role as ‘Lady Macbeth:’

“Before my family, everything in my life was dedicated to the character. The more deeply affected I was by her, the closer I felt to her. But I cannot lock myself away in another world any more. I don’t want it to affect my son when I’m in a weird state because I’m ‘depressed’ or ‘killing a king’.”

She’s an incredibly talented actress and so beautiful to boot.  She will be voicing ‘The Rose’ in the animated film adaption of The Little Prince being directed by Mark Osborne.  That project also includes Rachel McAdams, James, Franco, Benicio del Toro, and my own favorite, Jeff Bridges.

Marion Cotillard and Lena Dunham at the Met Gala!

'Charles James: Beyond Fashion' Costume Institute Gala

Actress Marion Cotillard looked absolutely stunning last night at the 2014 Met Gala. She wore this beautiful dress by Dior.

Lena Dunham, on the other hand, I just don’t understand her style. She wears the most ill-fitting clothes I’ve ever seen on anyone. It’s not her body that’s the problem – it’s her clothes! She looks awful, IMO.

Marion Cotillard protests in support of Greenpeace in Paris, France

Marion Cotillard Protests In Paris

French actress Marion Cotillard and Greenpeace activists protest inside a mock prison cell, in support of fellow activists who were detained on the boat Arctic Sunrise, during a protest action at Palais Royal place in Paris.

The “Dark Knight Rises” actress locked herself in the cage, demanding the release of 30 jailed members of Greenpeace’s Arctic Sunrise boat crew, who are being held in Russia.

Marion’s sign read “I Am A Climate Defender” in support of the 28 activists and 2 reporters who were arrested on September 19th after a Russian oil rig protest.

A rep from the Investigative Committee in Russia shared, “The decision has been made to transfer all 30 of the accused to detention centers in St. Petersburg. The charges against them do not fall under the jurisdiction of courts in the Murmansk region.”

Natalie Portman turns down Lady Macbeth role – Marion Cotillard scoops it up!

Natalie Portman had signed on to play Lady Macbeth in the upcoming film adaptation of Shakespeare’s famous play, but has backed out. Another Oscar-winning actress has swooped in and grabbed the role. Marion Cotillard has signed on to play the evil mastermind of ‘Macbeth,’ set in 11th century Scotland.

There’s no word as to why Portman bowed out of the movie, which is still set to star Michael Fassbender as the titular king-to-be. When news first broke of the “Black Swan” star’s casting, Portman said she’d been pining to play Lady Macbeth for ages and had considered taking on a stage production of the tragedy. The decision may come because of the demands of Portman’s directorial debut, “Tale of Love & Darkness,” which, like “Macbeth,” is expected to begin shooting in January 2014. HuffPost Entertainment reached out to Portman’s reps to inquire about the actress’ reason for leaving the project but has not yet heard back.

“Macbeth” will be shepherded by Iain Canning and Emile Sherman, the producers behind “The King’s Speech” and “Shame.” Justin Kurzel (“Snowtown”) will direct.

I think Marion is a MUCH better pick than Natalie. And Michael Fassbender is pure genius. Okay, I just love him. I bet I’d like him in any role. Scratch that. Never do a comedy Michael….then we’ll be just fine, you and I.
