Marion Cotillard Introduction
Marion Cotillard (born 30 September 1975) is a French actress, perhaps best known for portraying Édith Piaf in 2007's La Môme (also known as La Vie En Rose). You should watch her french movies, especially in French, cause she has a such a sweet voice!
Marion Cotillard Life Story
Cotillard began acting during her childhood, appearing on stage in one of her father's plays. Her career as a film actress began in the mid-1990s. She rose to prominence in the late 1990s when she was cast in the Luc Besson production Taxi (1998) as Lili Bertineau, a role that she reprised in two sequels. The film series was the inspiration for the Jimmy Fallon-Queen Latifah film of the same name. We wish that film had been shot in French as well. It would have been funnier.
Although more widely known in France, Cotillard is building an international presence. In 2003, her reputation was considerably enhanced, when she acted in Tim Burton's film Big Fish. The film introduced her to English-speaking audiences, and also became her first critical, and financially successful film. The only derision came from die hard Tim Burton fans, who wanted "Less happiness, more gloom and Danny Elfman's glockenspiel".)
This lead to two more critically successful film's into 2004, known as A Very Long Engagement, where Cotillard further demonstrated the range of her abilities by playing the murderous Tina Lombardi, opposite Audrey Tautou, of Amélie and Da Vinci Code fame. How someone would want to murder Amélie is beyond me. She's so adorable!
She recently in Ridley Scott's A Good Year, and was later chosen among hundreds of candidates to portray the iconic French chanteuse Édith Piaf in Olivier Dahan's biopic La Môme (English title: La Vie En Rose), dubbed "the most awaited film of 2007" in France, next to the Jerry Lewis marathon on Canal +.
Cotillard is currently in talks to play Luisa Contini in the film adaptation of the Tony Award winning musical Nine. The part of Luisa Contini had previously been played by Karen Akers in the original 1982 production and more recently Mary Stuart Masterson in the Tony-Award winning 2003 revival also starring Antonio Banderas, Jane Krakowski, Chita Rivera, and Laura Benanti. The film is to be directed by DGA winner Rob Marshall and it is scheduled for release in 2008. One thing's for sure: chicks will like it. So buy your advance tickets, gentlemen.
Marion Cotillard La Vie Personnelle
Cotillard was born in Paris and grew up around Orléans, Loiret in an artistically inclined, "bustling, creative household". Her father, Jean-Claude Cotillard, is an actor, teacher, director, and former mime. "Former Mime" is good. It somehow manages to put an activity like "Miming" in the same category as "Alcoholism" and "Drug Abuse." Which is should be. Friggin' mimes. Her mother, Niseema Theillaud is also an actress. She has two younger twin brothers named Quentin and Guillaume, the first being a sculptor/painter (he lives in the US) and the second one a writer. We're going to go out on a limb and say they drink absinthe and write musical productions together. The whole family. Yep.
Cotillard is known to be ecologically minded, and has served as a spokesperson for Greenpeace letting the organization use her apartment for testing products. She'll regret it when Greenpeace finally designs that "Eco Friendly Nuclear Warhead" they've been talking about. That's gonna be the day Marion has to call in the maid service a few days ahead of schedule.
