French girls have always held a certain mystique. Maybe it's their accents, their rumored affinity for toplessness or some unknown force of attraction. What we do know is that French actress Marion Cotillard has a new movie out called Rust and Bone, which gives us the chance to put together this gallery of hot French actresses. Enjoy.
Léa Seydoux Her fight scene with Paula Patton in Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol is in the running for greatest thing ever.
Bérénice Marlohe The newest Bond girl may just be the hottest.
Marion Cotillard Luckily her role as a homicidal dream person in Inception didn't turn us off her any.
