Marion Cotillard to 'Interview': I Would Like to Play a Man!

Marion Cotillard to 'Interview': I Would Like to Play a Man!

Marion Cotillard looks gorgeous on the cover of Interview magazine‘s March 2014 issue, on newsstands March 4.

Here is what the 38-year-old Blood Ties actress had to share with the mag:

On her desire to play a male role, specifically Hedwig: “I started to train, to have, like, muscles on my legs. It was right after I did Piaf, La Vie en Rose. I started to take singing lessons and finding where I could go. I wanted so much to do it, but after being this little old lady and, by the end, totally fucked up, the time was wrong.”

On working with her boyfriend Guillaume Canet: “I loved working with him. It was actually one of my favorite characters. She really touched me. She does everything for her kids, even if she struggles with drugs… But this fight for her kids really moved me. And, of course, it’s because I became a mom myself.”

On her baby someday becoming an actor: “Ah, it’s an amazing job, but my parents never told me anything about how hard the job would be. My parents were actors too. I don’t even know if when I wanted to be an actress, they went, “Oh, shit.” [laughs] I must ask them. I mean, an actor has a huge failure in him… So it’s kind of a struggle. I mean, if my son wants to be an actor, it’s fine.”

  • Cate

    She’s gorgeous.

  • Tyla

    Grace and class? Really? She drops the F-bomb in this interview. If any other woman did that you people would be calling them trashy.

  • really?

    she’s so dumb. she had a nose job too.

  • Perla

    Her career sucks now, she went after her oscar like crazy and the rest of her roles suck. She’s so desperate.

  • Davis

    I’ll never forget her in batman, gosh she was horrible.

  • Leo

    @Perla: she ‘s got huge issues with her ego. she’s so self centered and she just gravitates around herself. People are not really found of her in america.. she doesn’t seem to understand that she won’t have a proper career here. she’s a head case too. she used to be really addicted to coke before and slept her way to the top to get parts when she began. She also thought she was possessed with edith piaf’s spirit. The girl is spooky.

  • tara

    @Perla: i just came back from france. don’t understand why they don’t like her there. they were saying how much she campaigned for everything and was putting herself everywhere. people said she became like a clown. i like her, i don’t get it. The french don’t like her, i can’t believe it!

  • zorro

    she sucks.

  • oscars

    marion cotillard playing lady macbeth? ewwwwww

  • knows

    never liked her.

  • Sarah

    So the french moron and jealous from Celeb!tchy is here? LOL
    Get a life @Tyla/Perla/Davis/Leo/Zorro/Oscar/french girl/la frenchy/@magpie/whatever your name really is! You’re so terrible pretending you are more than just one loser, you’re not fooling anyone! HAHAHA
    @really?: What nose job? are you retarded? her nose is the same since she was a kid! her son’s nose is exactly like hers!
    Go suck Brigitte Bardot’s racist, old and full of plastic surgery as.s! I guess she is a much better representation of France than Marion, right? LOL

  • Kate

    @tara: They don’t like Marion in France because she has a stable career in Hollywood!
    French people can’t stand a french actor who has success outside of their country! Marion is one of the highest paid foreign actors in Hollywood, the highest paid french actress in both France and America, she is working with great directors, starring opposite great actors, she is a fashion icon – she is by far the best face of Dior! – she has featured on almost 200 magazine covers in the past 6 years, she has the best post-Oscar career of a best actress winner in the last 20-30 years (what happened to Halle Berry? Hilary Swank? Helen Hunt? Frances McDormand? Kathy Bates? Reese Witherspoon? Natalie Portman?).
    That’s why they don’t like Marion in France: it’s called JEALOUS!

  • touliou

    Hello, i’m french and i can explain why we don’t particulary like her in France. It’s juste because when she won an oscar and her american carreer began, she started to take the bighead. If you watch her french interviews before and after the oscar, it can be clearly seen. She snobs everybody and is kind of cold during interviews.
    Also, it has absolutely nothing to do with jealousy, but the way she treats people now. Still, I do think she’s a brilliant actress and she deserved all these prices, so it’s too bad she’s like this now.

  • Kate

    @touliou: She is cold during interviews? maybe is because everytime she gives an interview, the french press takes it out of context and makes a fuzz about it to show how evil Marion is. They did it last year when Marion gave a interview to The Hollywood Reporter (the video in on Youtube) and she was asked about her worst experience as an actress, and she said that was terrible to work with a director who didn’t know what he was doing, she didn’t mentioned the name of the guy neither the title of the film, but the french press took it out of context with headlines like “Marion Cotillard agressively attacks the director – look how terrible she is” and turned the director – who is really terrible by the way – into a saint and a poor victim.
    Honestly, I would be cold during interviews too if everytime I say something, people would use it against me!
    And I’ve noticed that Marion doesn’t look much confortable when she is giving interviews, especially if she is alone, she looks more relaxed when there’s someone else at her side to be interviewed, her interviews with Matthias Schoenaerts while they were promoting Rust and Bone proves that.

  • wild

    @Sarah: well, I think many people dislike her and think she’s a fake. i do, and I think she’s a terrible actress. Marion is so self centered that she believes that everyone likes her and that it’s impossible for other people to simply not like her work.

  • Jay Junior

    @Perla: She tried to play an italian american woman. And she shouldn’t have. Peeps in NY found her awful. She can’t pull it off. She tries way too hard to be accepted in the US. Go back to France!

  • Jay Junior

    @Kate: good to see marion comes in here to defend herself and giver herself a lot of self praise to try to convince herself that she’s a goddess. A little EGO problem marion? maybe you should get that fixed, just saying.

  • Martha

    @Kate: you’re obviously french because you make a lot of spelling and grammatical errors. I do find that she seems big headed.

  • James

    Marion thought edith piaf’s spirit was attached to her. she did some shady things about that, thinking edith had a part in her life and luck. Like she was haunted about it!

  • Rose

    French girl, you are the one who need to go back to France! You’re so pathetic with your multiple monikers!
    There’s a lot of hate in your heart, GET A LIFE!

  • tell

    @Rose: hi marion! nice to know you like to say how “incredible” you are on the jj threads…

  • Melanie

    @tell: Go find a psychiatrist to treat your mental retardation!

  • Road

    Did you guys see the videos of her talking about the towers and the man landing on the moon? Is she out of her mind? yikes!

  • Amy

    @Road: Go back to the mental h.ospital!
