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