While I normally tend to post more sexy magazine spreads, Marion Cotillard’s new shoot for the July/August issue of WSJ magazine as part of her promotion efforts for The Dark Knight Rises is just stunning. I love her and thinks she is absolutely beautiful and a talented actress as well. I’m glad she is starting to do more American films and has risen to popularity more with her role in Inception.
The 36-year-old French actress looked amazing in a $16,000 Gucci gown for the Josh Olins shot front page while dishing about everything from her experiences at Paris runway shows to the impact of being a new mother.
Highlights from Miss Cotillard’s interview are as follows.
On fielding journalists’ questions at runway shows in Paris:
“I would have very dumb answers because I didn’t have anything to say. Not that I’m smarter with my answers now, but at least my vision of fashion has changed—it’s actually an art, what designers do with the shape of the body.”
On the gregarious ‘Rust and Bone’ cast:
“If we were shooting a party, we were at a party. It was kind of hard for Guillaume to contain us sometimes.”
On her evolving career:
“I have the opportunity to travel in all these worlds, and that’s why I wanted to be an actress. I wanted to go from a point to the opposite point—and that’s happening.”
On how motherhood has impacted her:
“Your priorities are totally changed, and for the best… I’m super cool now.”
