Marion Cotillard: 'I Don't Qualify Myself as a Feminist'

Marion Cotillard looks stunning on the cover of Porter magazine’s Winter 2015 issue, on newsstands October 2.

Here is what the 39-year-old Macbeth actress had to share with the mag:

On juggling motherhood with acting
: “For me, [there are] questions about how you can be two persons at the same time, when you have to be in a character and at the same time be mum. I didn’t care before if I would bring a little bit of the character home because I was alone. But today it’s kind of a struggle because most of the roles, I mean all of the roles I have are pretty dramatic.”

On gender equality in film: “Filmmaking is not about gender. You cannot ask a president in a festival like Cannes to have, like, five movies directed by women and five by men. For me it doesn’t create equality, it creates separation. I mean I don’t qualify myself as a feminist. We need to fight for women’s rights but I don’t want to separate women from men. We’re separated already because we’re not made the same and it’s the difference that creates this energy in creation and love. Sometimes in the word feminism there’s too much separation.”

On turning down movies to spend time with her four-year-old son, Marcel: “I want to spend time with my kid… Because, well, it’s easier when you have a family and that’s the priority. I never regret turning down a movie because you know, you live.”
