Marion Cotillard Covers 'The Hollywood Reporter'
Here’s what the 36-year-old French actress had to share with the mag:
On getting offered a role in The Dark Knight Rises from her Inception director Christopher Nolan: “I’m like, ‘Wait a minute, his next movie is supposed to be Batman!’ And I’ve always been obsessed with Batman.”
On growing up: “I really didn’t know how I would spend my life. I didn’t like anything about myself – my looks, my personality. I was very, very angry … I was living in an HLM [the projects in Paris]. I come from ‘la cite.’ That’s who I am. As they’d say here, ‘I’m still this girl from the Bronx.’”
Public Enemies director Michael Mann on Marion: “I knew she was a great artist. But what I found with her was it’s all about the work, all about the commitment. Her energy evolves from this devotion to acting as an art. You don’t want anything else.”
