Penelope Cruz & Marion Cotillard Covers Elle's Women in Hollywood Issue
Here’s what the ladies, who also join Naomie Harris on her own cover, had to share with the mag:
Marion, on why she became an actress: “When I was a kid, I started to have a lot of questions about human beings, and I was a troubled child because of all of these questions. I guess that’s why I became an actress. Not only because my parents were actors and, yeah, it’s a beautiful thing to tell stories, but I think I became an actress because I wanted to explore this- to explore what a human being is.”
Naomie, on standing up for herself: “On my first film, I played a stowaway on a ship heading to Germany, and the director told me I was going to be thrown into the sea. But he didn’t have any stunt coordinators! I told him I would agree to be pushed over the side, but only if I could watch him getting pushed over first. Both of us stayed dry.”
Penelope, on her stardom: “The concept of a ‘star’ will always sound foreign and surreal to me because growing up in my country, you’re an actor, not a star.”
