Penelope Cruz & Marion Cotillard Covers Elle's Women in Hollywood Issue

Marion Cotillard and Penelope Cruz pose on individual covers of Elle magazine’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.”
